The anti‐larval IgE antibody response of adolescents with high or low resistance to infection by Schistosoma mansoni was evaluated before parasitological cure with oxamniquine and over an extended post‐treatment period during which the least resistant subjects regained high infections. IgE from most sera, taken at several bleeding times before and after treatment, reacted, on immunoblots, with a large number of antigens (Ag) in schistosomular tegument extract. A family of 120‐165‐kDa cross… Expand
Comparison of antibody isotype responses to Schistosoma mansoni antigens by infected and putative resistant individuals living in an endemic area
TLDR
Comparisons between isotypic responses to SEA, SWAP and CERC based on comparisons to the anti‐SWAP IgE responses of the individuals in the two groups indicate the presence of distinct immunologic differences between Individuals in the PI and the EN groups. Expand
Increased Human IgE Induced by Killing Schistosoma mansoni In Vivo Is Associated with Pretreatment Th2 Cytokine Responsiveness to Worm Antigens1
TLDR
An exceptionally strong relationship between IL-5 and posttreatment worm-IgE levels in <15-year-olds suggested that the failure of younger children to respond to in vivo Ag stimulation with increased levels of IgE, is related to their lack of pretreatment SWA Th2 cytokine responsiveness. Expand
Susceptibility and resistance to Schistosoma mansoni reinfection: parallel cellular and isotypic immunologic assessment.
TLDR
Findings indicate that even on the population level, high IgE specificities coupled with low IgG4 specificities correlate well with documented resistance to reinfection. Expand
Progressive Cross-Reactivity in IgE Responses: an Explanation for the Slow Development of Human Immunity to Schistosomiasis?
TLDR
It is proposed that in chronic schistosomiasis, older individuals have repeatedly experienced IgE antigens exposed when adult worms die and that this leads to increasing cross-reactivity with antigen of invading larvae (e.g., TAL5). Expand
IgA antibodies to a protective antigen in human Schistosomiasis mansoni.
TLDR
Functional analysis revealed that IgA antibodies to Sm28GST displayed a potent neutralizing effect on the enzymatic properties of the molecule, and also markedly impaired schistosome fecundity, by limiting both the egg laying of mature worms and the hatching capacity of schistsome eggs into viable miracidia.

Longitudinal analysis of antigen specific response in individuals with Schistosoma mansoni infection in an endemic area of Minas Gerais, Brazil
TLDR
IgG4 anti-SEA reactivity can be used as a biomarker for immune monitoring of the presence of infection with S. mansoni in endemic areas. Expand
Resistance to Schistosoma mansoni in humans: influence of the IgE/IgG4 balance and IgG2 in immunity to reinfection after chemotherapy.
The hypothesis of an association between human resistance to reinfection by the parasite Schistosoma mansoni and anti-larval immunoglobulin isotypes was tested by logistic regression in the presenceExpand
SCHISTOSOMA MANSONI INFECTION AND THE ASSOCIATED ANTIBODY IMMUNE RESPONSE AMONGST RESIDENTS OF KIGUNGU ENTEBBE, UGANDA.
TLDR
Praziquantel treatment of S. mansoni infected persons alter the immune responses that are influenced by age and intensity, a phenomenon that is useful in the effort to produce vaccine against schistosome. Expand
Antibody response patterns against Schistosoma mansoni in a recently exposed community in Senegal.
TLDR
The observations do not support the current hypothesis that age-related resistance to Schistosoma is determined by IgE-mediated protective immunity acquired during many years of exposure, and instead appear to be largely similar to those in chronically infected communities. Expand
The antibody responses to adult-worm antigens of Schistosoma haematobium, among infected and resistant individuals from an endemic community in southern Ghana
TLDR
Antibody responses to antigens from adult Schistosoma haematobium were investigated in an endemic community in Ghana, using microplate-ELISA, indicating that anti-worm IgE and IgG could be used as markers to reflect current infection intensity and that pro-worm antibodies may not act as protective antibodies in the natural course of urinary schistosomiasis.

Human resistance to Schistosoma mansoni is associated with IgG reactivity to a 37-kDa larval surface antigen.
TLDR
The comparative study, by immunoblotting and ELISA on purified Ag, of the sera from high and low susceptibility subjects indicates that IgG reactivity toward the 37-kDa Ag may be associated with resistance, and this work and ongoing vaccination trials carried out in mice suggest that the37-k da Ag may have vaccinating potentials. Expand
Human IgE, IgG4 and resistance to reinfection with Schistosomahaematobium
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis that the slow build-up of IgE to high levels and the early production of IgG4 antibodies, which may block IgE pathways, are responsible for delaying the development of protective immunity to S. haematobium. Expand
Immunity after treatment of human schistosomiasis mansoni. II. Identification of resistant individuals, and analysis of their immune responses.
TLDR
Findings indicated that resistance was an acquired and age-dependent phenomenon, not obviously related to previous egg-induced pathology, and marked differences between different individuals in their capacity to produce eosinophil-stimulating monocyte mediators cannot yet be related to resistance. Expand
Rat IgE directed against schistosomula‐released products is cytotoxic for Schistosoma mansoni schistosomula in vitro
TLDR
Among the antigens recognized by anti‐SRP‐A IgE, two molecules of 26 and 22 kDa have been identified by sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis followed by western blotting. Expand

TLDR
Findings of the comparative specificities and relative abundance of IgE and IgG antibodies in infected patients may have fundamental importance in explaining the clinical expression (especially allergic reactivity) and disease pathogenesis of human filarial infections. Expand
Subclass distribution and IgE responses after treatment in human schistosomiasis.
TLDR
The associated rise in IgG1, IgG4 and IgE antibody concentrations and eosinophils may suggest a causal relation possibly induced by common interleukins. Expand

TLDR
Inhibition experiments showed that IgM-enriched fractions (PAS effluents) were able to inhibit eosinophil- dependent cytotoxicity mediated by IgG fractions (total sera or PAS eluates). Expand
Modulation of the host response in human schistosomiasis. III. Blocking antibodies specifically inhibit immediate hypersensitivity responses to parasite antigens.
TLDR
These studies demonstrate that in addition to the immunoregulatory mechanisms previously described in patients with schistosome infections, there is host modulation of immediate hypersensitivity responsiveness that appears to involve specific immunoglobulin G blocking antibodies. Expand

Naturally occurring blocking antibodies modulate immediate hypersensitivity responses in human filariasis.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that IgG blocking antibodies directed against parasite allergens are a regular component of the immune response to chronic filarial infection and suggest their potential role in vivo for specifically modulating allergic responsiveness to parasite antigens. Expand
