Field comparison of circulating antibody assays versus circulating antigen assays for the detection of schistosomiasis japonica in endemic areas of China
Parasites & Vectors 2014, 7:138 (31 March 2014)
Both circulating antibody and circulating antigen assays had been evaluated in this study. Immunodiagnostic techniques to detect circulating antigens have potential to be deployed for schistosomiasis japonica screening in the endemic areas.
