The specific IgA antibody responses to the protective recombinant Schistosoma mansoni 28-kDa glutathione-S-transferase (Sm28GST) Ag and to derived synthetic peptides have been evaluated before and 6 mo after chemotherapy in S. mansoni-infected patients from Kenya. These studies revealed a parallelism between the age-dependent evolution of IgA antibody levels to Sm28GST and to one synthetic peptide (115-131) and the acquisition of resistance to reinfection. Functional analysis revealed that IgA… CONTINUE READING
