Sensitive and specific diagnostic methods of schistosomiasis at an early stage of infection are crucial to avoid irreversible pathological reactions induced by eggs. This study aimed to evaluate the PCR technique for detection of free circulating Schistosoma mansoni DNA in serum in the early prepatent period in experimentally infected mice, in comparison to… CONTINUE READING
