Immunoblot evaluation of the species-specificity of Em18 and Em16 antigens for serodiagnosis of human alveolar echinococcosis.

Abstract

An immunoblot study to confirm the species-specificity of the diagnostic antigens Em18 and Em16 of Echinococcus multilocularis protoscolex extract showed that both antigens cross-reacted with sera from cystic echinococcosis (CE) patients. The 18 kDa component was detectable by 75% of the sera from active alveolar echinococcosis (AE) patients, while only 31… (More)
