The specificity of the recombinant Toxocara canis antigen developed for the immunodiagnosis of human toxocariasis was compared with that of the excretory-secretory antigen from T. canis second-stage larvae (TES) by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. A total of 153 human serum samples from patients infected with 20 different helminths, including 11 cases of(More)
The cDNA encoding an excretory]secretory antigen from the second stage larvae of Toxocara canis has been characterized. Sequence analysis revealed an open reading frame encoding a protein of 226 amino acid residues Ž . M s24 398 . Sequence database searches showed similarities to regions corresponding to epidermal growth r factor-like and lectin-like(More)
