The applicability of two immunodiagnostic techniques was studied for the detection of antibodies against schistosome gut-associated polysaccharide antigens in human schistosomiasis mansoni: the immunofluorescent antibody reaction (IFA) using Rossman's fixed paraffin sections of adult worms and the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) with a trichloroacetic acid soluble fraction of total adult worm antigens (AWA-TCA). With the IFA, gut-associated polysaccharide antigens could be… CONTINUE READING
