Abstract

Abstract

Antibodies against endocardium, blood vessels, interstitium, and plasma membrane of skeletal and heart muscle cells (EVI), as well as antibodies against structures from peripheral nerve (PN), were studied in serum samples from 27 individuals with negative serology and 102 seropositive individuals with or without Chagas' disease from the State of Goiás, Brazil. Although significantly higher titers of EVI and PN antibodies were found in some of the seropositive individuals their presence was not correlated with the clinical symptoms and signs which characterize the chronic stage of the disease, nor with the severity of the disease.
