Giardia lamblia, an important cause of diarrheal disease, resides in the small intestinal lumen in close apposition to epithelial cells. Since the disease mechanisms underlying giardiasis are poorly understood, elucidating the specific interactions of the parasite with the host epithelium is likely to provide clues to understanding the pathogenesis. Here we(More)
The protozoan Giardia lamblia is a major cause of parasite-induced diarrhea in humans. Humoral immunity has been shown to be important for clearance of the infection, but only a few antigens have been identified. In this study, we focused on the immunoreactivity of nonvariant antigens. Serum samples from 93 patients with acute giardiasis who were infected(More)
