Enzyme Immunoassays for Tropical Parasitic Diseases
The immunodiagnosis of tropical parasitic diseases has begun to benefit significantly from recent developments such as: in vitro cultivation of pathogenic parasites; new immunochemical methods for producing and purifying immunodiagnostic reagents; emergence of reagent monoclonal antibodies; and the development of sensitive immunoassay methodology for detecting low concentrations of circulating or excreted pathogens or their markers in body fluids.
