Cysticerci parasitize several mammalian species, including man, in which the parasitic disease shows unique characteristics since cysticerci are established mainly in immunologically privileged sites and can survive for many years. The study of the human immune response to cysticerci is helpful in diagnosis and could perhaps also aid in preventing or curing the disease. Anti-cysticercus IgG can be detected in serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of almost all patients with neurocysticercosis, by… CONTINUE READING
