Immuno-epidemiology of Ascaris lumbricoides infection in a high transmission community: antibody responses and their impact on current and future infection intensity.

Abstract

The role of the humoral immune system in human infection with Ascaris lumbricoides remains unclear. This study documents an epidemiological investigation in a highly endemic community in Vietnam, whereby serum antibody levels were assessed before treatment and after a 6-month reinfection period. These data were examined by correlation with infection status… (More)
