Isolation and purification of circulating filarial antigens from microfilarial carriers



Isolation and purification of circulating filarial antigens from microfilarial carriers



Biomedical Research 16(2): 101-106



Lymphatic filariasis caused. by infection from Wuchereria bancrofti and Brugia malayi is characterized by wide spectrum of clinical manifestations that include microfilaraemic carriers with sub clinical infection and clinical cases with acute, chronic and occult presentations. The circulating filarial antigen (CFA) considered to be an indicator of active infection, was detected in most of the microfilaraemics, acute and occult filarial cases.
