Diagnosis of Pre- and Post-treatment of Echinococcus granulosus with Counter current Immune Electrophoresis and Bacterial Co-agglutination

AbstractObjectives: Echinococcosis is a cyclozoonotic disease caused by E. granulosus. The canine mainly the dog represents the definitive host and immunity plays an important role in the control of the disease. This study was aimed to detect Echinococcus granulosus B-antibody for Dot-ELISA and antigen for counter-current immune electrophoresis (CIEP) and bacterial co-agglutination assay (Co-A).
