Specific antigens of Echinococcus multilocularis is essential for the diagnosis of alveolar echinococcosis and vaccine development. Because of the limited source of nature antigen, its application is restricted. The development of recombinant antigens can provide large amount of antigen under effective quality control. This review summarizes the recent progress in antigen research, especially the recombinant antigen used for diagnosis of the disease.
