Comparative evaluation of indirect immunofluorescent antibody test with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in serodiagnosis of human neurocysticercosis

Comparative evaluation of indirect immunofluorescent antibody test with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in serodiagnosis of human neurocysticercosis
The applicability of indirect immunofluorescent antibody test (IFAT) was compared with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) in sera from 163 cases of confirmed neurocysticercosis, 101 other neurologic and parasitic diseases and 100 normal controls. As antigen, frozen sections of a Taenia solium metacestode from a human brain was used in IFAT and cystic fluid was used in ELISA. For the detection of specific IgG antibody, IFAT was equally sensitive (89.6%) and specific (85.1%) as ELISA.
