The present research was carried out to evaluate the sensitivity of serodiagnosis with DotImmunoblotting-Assay (DIA) also denominated Dot-Blot-Dye-Assay (DBDA) and the efficiency of P.A.I.R. therapy in patients with hepatic hydatid cysts in the Kenyan region called Turkana. Hydatidosis, caused by larval stage of Echinococcus granulosus in the intermediate host (herbivores or man), is characterized by the formation of cysts 6596 of them are localized in the liver. Other organs affected are the… CONTINUE READING
