Abstract:

This report deals with the immunochemical characteristics of the water extracts of S. mansoni cercarial and adults, mainly the overall antigenic potential and stability under various physico-chemical conditions heat inactivation, effect of freezing and thawing, lyophilization and storage partial fractionation and isolation of a number of protein antigens from cercarial and adult forms and their reactivity with anti-schistosome sera from natural human or experimental animal infections, crossreactions between schistosomes and Trichinella antigen-antibody systems, the variable interactions between antibody and antigens depending upon the phase of the infection and the type of antigens used.
