#9650 Fasciola hepatica
ELISA kit for the diagnosis of fascioliasis in humans

Parasitology and clinical relevance

Fasciolosis is one of the most frequently encountered autochthonous helminthic infection in Central Europe. The immunodiagnosis of Fasciola hepatica infections is challenged by high serological cross-reactivity with other (hepatic) parasitological infections encountered in Central Europe, such as alveolar echinococcosis, toxocarosis and ascariosis, but also other parasitic infections acquired during overseas travel. The SAP-2 recombinant antigen shows a high specificity, especially with patients with other parasitic infections. It is a suitable serological test for routine diagnosis of human fasciolosis, particularly if the results are supported by clinical history.

Test-Kit

96 determinations of IgG antibodies using standard methodologies.

Wells sensitized with a recombinant antigen (SAP2) from Fasciola hepatica.

8-wells polystyrene breakable strips: useful and economic format for laboratories with a small workload.

CE registration: CH-201504-0006

Sensitivity and specificity

The test detects Fasciola hepatica infections.

A sensitivity of 77% was found with 13 sera from patients with parasitologically proven Fasciola hepatica infections.

A specificity of 99% was found with 99 sera of blood donors (Swiss).

A specificity of 98 % was found with 100 sera from patients of an infectiology unit (Swiss).

A specificity of 97% was found with patients with other parasitc infections.
