Abstract

Abstract

High levels of leucine aminopeptidase (LAP) have been detected in eggs. In this report we demonstrate that this enzyme is immunogenic in mice infected with either or . The anti-schistosomal agent, praziquantel, causes rapid release of this enzyme from schistosome eggs in vitro. Praziquantel treatment of infected mice is associated with a significant decrease in anti-LAP antibodies. Anti-LAP IgM antibody levels decreased more than did anti-LAP IgG antibodies.
