Oct 17, 2007 · Assays for the detection of Schistosoma circulating antigens (adult worm gut-associated antigens) seem very promising, as serum levels of circulating anodic antigen (CAA) are related to actual worm burden and rapidly decrease following drug treatment (reviewed by van Lieshout et al.).Cited by: 161. DAY-TO-DAY FLUCTUATION OF SCHISTOSOME CIRCULATING ANTIGEN LEVELS IN SERUM AND URINE OF HUMANS INFECTED WITH SCHISTOSOMA MANSONI IN BURUNDI KATJA POLMAN, DIRK ENGELS, LORRAINE FATHERS, ANDRE M. DEELDER, AND BRUNO GRYSEELS Department of Parasitology, University of Leiden, Leiden, The Netherlands Abstract.Cited by: 25.
Jul 31, 2012 · CCA is one of the major antigens regurgitated by adult schistosomes and the major portion is later secreted in the host urine. Garcia MMA, Krijger GW, Amorim MN, Katz N, et al.

Day to day fluctuation of Schistosome circulating antigen levels in serum and urine of human infected with Schistosoma mansoni in Burundi fecal egg counts and circulating antigens (CAA and CCA.
MANSONI CIRCULATING ANTIGEN FLUCTUATION 153 ously observed, particularly in low-intensity infections.9, 29 In JP, Fillie´ YE, De Jonge N, Agnew AM, Van Lieshout L, 1994. our study, geometric mean egg counts were 90–100 eggs per Quantitative diagnosis of Schistosoma infections by measure- ment of circulating antigens in serum and urine. The fluctuation of circulating cathodic antigen (CCA) levels in urine was studied in 69 Brazilian school-children infected with Schistosoma mansoni and compared to egg counts. Faeces and urine samples were simultaneously collected at 7 times during a period of 2 weeks.Cited by: 14.
These antigens can be classified, according to the stage of development of the parasite, into cercarial antigens, adult worm associated antigens (e.g. tegument or gut-associated), and egg antigens. The major circulating antigens belong to the group of the adult worm gut-associated circulating antigens.Cited by: 192. Start studying A&P 2 - Ch. 22.2 Adaptive Immunity.
