The excretory-secretory antigens collected from the axenic culture medium and conventional somatic antigen prepared from the whole trophozoites of E. histolytica were compared for their efficacy in serodiagnosis of amoebiasis. A total of 280 sera collected from different clinically proven cases of amoebiasis and healthy subjects were analysed against both the antigens in ELISA. Both antigens showed a 100 per cent correlation in amoebic liver abscess cases, patients infected with enteropathogens… CONTINUE READING
