Indirect immunofluorescence test in diagnosis of human echinococcosis






Proceedings of the second International Symposium on taeniasis/cysticercosis and echinococcosis/hydatidosis 2-7 December 1985, Ceske Budejovice, Czechoslovakia: 97-100

Indirect immunofluorescence test in diagnosis of human echinococcosis

The sera of 131 patients with clinical symptoms of echinococcosis were tested using IFAT. 33 patients with a titre >1:40 were considered positive.
