Anisakiasis is a human disease caused by accidental ingestion of larval nematodes belonging to the Anisakidae family. Anisakiasis is often associated with a strong allergic response. Diagnosis of A. simplex allergy is currently carried out by test based on the IgE reactivity to a complete extract of L3 Anisakis larvae although the specificity of these diagnostic tests is poor. Improving the specificity of the diagnostic test is possible using purified recombinant allergens. A new Anisakis… CONTINUE READING
