Antibody responses to Loa loa in experimentally infected baboons and rhesus monkeys were measured using an adult L. loa antigen in a kinetic enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Animals were infected with infective stage larvae or by transplantation of juvenile worms. There were no differences between host species in antibody response and there was no relationship between adult worm numbers recovered at necropsy and antibody level. Antibody levels tended to be inversely correlated to the number… CONTINUE READING
