Galbeta1-6Gal, antigenic epitope which accounts for serological cross-reaction in diagnosis of Echinococcus multilocularis infection.


Parasitic helminths express various antigenic carbohydrates, which often account for serological cross-reactions. In serodiagnosis, it is essential to inspect cross-reactivity between the target parasite and other parasites in order to assess diagnostic performance. Our previous study showed that the Galbeta1-6Gal sequence was a common epitope between… (More)
