Three years of collaboration on the standardization of Chagas' disease serodiagnosis in the Americas: an appraisal



Three years of collaboration on the standardization of Chagas' disease serodiagnosis in the Americas: an appraisal



Bulletin of the Pan American Health Organization 20(3): 233-244



A study, aimed at standardization of the serodiagnosis of Chagas' disease was begun in Argentina, Brazil and the USA in 1981. In the first trial, one laboratory in each country tested 2 panels of sera collected in Argentina and Brazil by techniques and reagents regularly used at these laboratories. This demonstrated marked differences in the reactivity of the various tests and criteria used to score sera as positive or negative.
