Echinococcus multilocularis oncospheres, primary vesicular cysts, and protoscolices were assessed in vitro and in vivo for their potential to synthesize a PAS-positive laminated layer containing monoclonal antibody (mAb) G11-binding Em2 antigen. The presence of Em2 antigen in developed oncospheres and cysts was subsequently correlated to the potential of in… CONTINUE READING
