The symposium on which this book is based was convened by the International Centre Immunodiagnostic Approaches in Schistosomiasis book Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB) and TDR, in order to highlight modern trends in immunodiagnosis of schistosomiasis.

Facilitated by advances in molecular biology, techniques in this field, including assays based on the detection of antigens circulating in the serum and/or excreted in. S.-B. Chen, J.-H. Chen, in Advances in Parasitology, Immunodiagnosis. Immunodiagnostic techniques have a high sensitivity, are easy to perform and are an excellent epidemiological tool for the screening of target populations in schistosome-endemic areas (Zhang et al., ).Many variations of indirect immunodiagnostic assays in schistosomiasis diagnosis include the circumoval.

Introduction Leprosy is one of six diseases the World Health Organization (WHO) considers a major threat in developing countries and often results in severe, life-long disabilities and deformities due to delayed diagnosis [1].

Notable epidemiological features of global leprosy today include a continued new case detection rate of approximatelyper year and indirect evidence suggesting. Immunodiagnostic assays have been tested for the detection of imported schistosomiasis.

The test shows if a person has been exposed to TB bacteria, but it does not indicate if the infection is active or latent or if the patient is currently infectious. This test is an example of a Type IV or.

Schistosomiasis is one of the oldest parasitic infections of man, yet it remains a serious public health concern throughout the world’s tropical and subtropical regions, affecting more than million people (WHO, ; King et al., ).One factor contributing to high disease prevalence is the scarcity of effective diagnostic methods to detect infections and response to drug.

SUMMARY The potential impact of the Three Gorges Dam (TGD) on schistosomiasis transmission in China has invoked considerable global concern. The TGD will result in changes in the water level and silt deposition downstream, favoring the reproduction of Oncomelania snails.
