In this report we show that there are 37 polypeptides of larval Taenia solium which react with antibodies from humans with neurocysticercosis. Six of these 37 polypeptides are recognized by antibodies present in the sera of both patients and control individuals. Thus, a minimum of 31 antigens are specific for cysticerci. We describe herein the antigens more frequently recognized by the patients, and the immunoglobulin classes favored in antibody production against each of the cysticercal… CONTINUE READING
