The excretory-secretory (E-LS) products released by the adult Setaria cervi, a bovine filarial parasite, were used to raise polyvalent hyperimmune serum in rabbits. Analysis of E-S products, using anti-E-S serum showed the presence of 10-14 immunogenic proteins, the rabbit anti-E-S serum showed reciprocal antibody titres in the range of 100,000-250,000 by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay. The anti-E-S antibodies could detect circulating antigen in filarial patients sera by Counter… CONTINUE READING
