Abstract

Abstract

Analysis of human serum reactivities to antigenic components of soluble metacestode proteins showed the predominant presence of determinants shared by and . Two polypeptides were demonstrated by SDS-PAGE and Western blot or enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blot (EITB) assay to bind serum and CSF antibodies only from cysticercosis patients. These species-specific antigenic polypeptides focused between pH 4.6 and 3.9 after resolution by isoelectric focusing followed by EITB. The high species-specificity demonstrated by the present techniques offers the opportunity to confirm serologically an infection by metacestode.
