Circulating Antigens Levels in Different Clinical Forms of the Schistosoma mansoni Infection
Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz
With the aim to evaluate the circulating cathodic antigen (CCA) levels in relation to the different clinical phases of Schistosoma sp. infection a sandwich ELISA using monoclonal antibody 5H11 was performed.
