HILLYER, GEORGE V.; SOLER DE GALANES, MARICELIS  y  DELGADO AZANERO, ELIO. Immune diagnosis of human fasciolosis in children from Cajamarca, Perú. Parasitol. día [online]. 2001, vol.25, n.3-4, pp. 82-84. ISSN 0716-0720.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-07202001000300003.

The immunodiagnostic potential of a FAST-ELISA for the detection of antibodies in fasciolosis with sera from 6-12 year old children from Cajamarca, Peru was examined. Four children negative parasitologically were negative by FAST-ELISA. All 13 children found positive parasitologically were also positive by FAST-ELISA for 100% sensitivity. Twelve of the 13 infected children seroreverted 4 months post dihydroemetine therapy showing lower antibody levels as compared with the pretreatment sample. These results suggest that FAST-ELISA may be useful for the determination of infection and success of therapy in children with fasciolosis.
