Abstract

GUARALDO, Ana Maria Aparecida; BASTOS, Othon de Carvalho; MAGALHAES, Luiz Augusto  and  RANGEL, Humberto de Araújo. Diagnosis of mansoni schistosomiasis by means of immunofluorescent technique using sporocysts in planorbid tissues. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1981, vol.15, n.6, pp. 623-628. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101981000600005.

An immunofluorescent technique is proposed for diagnosis of mansoni schistosomiasis using Biomphalaria glabrata tissue with secondary sporocysts. The indirect immunofluorescent reaction is carried out on histological sections prepared by embedding in paraffin.

Keywords : Schistosomiasis; Fluorescent antybody technic; Biomphalaria glabrata; Schistosoma mansoni.
