Immunoblot analysis of Schistosoma mansoni antigens with sera of schistosomiasis patients: diagnostic potential of an adult schistosome polypeptide.


We compared the reaction in immunoblots of sera obtained from patients with parasitologically proven S. mansoni infections, with a suspected history of schistosomiasis infection, or with unrelated parasitic diseases. Several polypeptides from adult S. mansoni reacted with the schistosomiasis patients' sera in a heterogeneous manner. However, a component of… (More)
