Deglycosylation of Toxocara excretory-secretory antigens improves the specificity of the serodiagnosis for human toxocariasis.
 

Author(s): W H Roldán, G R Elefant, A W Ferreira

Journal: Parasite Immunol.. 2015 Nov;37(11):557-67.

 

Serodiagnosis of human toxocariasis is difficult in tropical areas where other helminthiasis are endemic. Many studies have shown that glycans from helminths may be the responsible for cross-reactions in the immunoassays. In this study, we have evaluated the deglycosylation of the ...
