Serum and urine levels of two Schistosoma circulating antigens, the circulating anodic antigen (CAA) and the circulating cathodic antigen (CCA), were determined by monoclonal antibody-based enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays in 56 Egyptian patients infected with S. mansoni and in 12 patients infected with both S. mansoni and S. haematobium. Both CAA and CCA could be specifically demonstrated in 82% and 88% of the serum samples and in 88% and 87% of the urine samples, respectively. While… CONTINUE READING
