Toxocara larval excretions and secretions collected from in vitro culture were used as antigen in passive haemagglutination and soluble antigen fluorescent antibody tests for the diagnosis of visceral larva migrans in experimental animals and man. Antibody to toxocaral secretions was detected in rabbits within 13 days of light Toxocara infection (ten larvae per kg) and within four days of heavy infection (10(4) larvae). Antibody was not detected following infection with 10(4) Ascaris suum… CONTINUE READING
