Antibodies against Echinococcus multilocularis metacestodes were screened by immunoblotting sera from patients with alveolar echinococcosis (n = 39), cystic echinococcosis (n = 109), or other parasitic infections (n = 66) and healthy individuals (n = 32). Two antigens, approximately 70 and 90 kDa, are found to be valuable for confirmatory diagnosis, with a(More)
Plasmodium vivax malaria, which is transmitted to humans by mosquitoes, is one of the most important parasitic diseases in Turkey. The major protein on the surface of asexual erythrocytic stage merozoites of P. vivax (Pv) is 200 kD and called major merozoite surface protein-1 (PvMSP1). Polyclonal antibodies against the 19-kD C-terminal fragment of PvMSP1(More)
