Sera from individuals in an area of Haiti endemic for were analyzed for reactivity to antigens of or using either an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay or an indirect immunofluorescent antibody test. IgM and IgG reactivity to all antigens was observed with sera from both microfilaremic and amicrofilaremic individuals when compared to reactivity of sera from individuals from nonendemic areas. Antibody reactivity to was greater than that to other antigens. IgG reactivity of sera from endemic patients to filarial antigens was consistently greater than that of IgM. Antibody reactivity was not correlated with age or microfilarial density.
