A Clonorchis sinensis-specific antigen in excretory-secretory product of C. sinensis (CsE) was assessed in human clonorchiasis by immunoblot. Thirty and 7 kDa antigens of CsE2, one of four different batches of CsEs reacted strongly with infection sera from clonorchiasis patients; however, the antigens reacted weakly with 6-month post-treatment sera from praziquantel-cured cases, but were still highly detected by the sera from praziquantel-failed patients, indicating that the 30 and 7 kDa… CONTINUE READING
