450,00 (12 test)

ECHINOCOCCUS Western Blot (WB) IgG is a qualitative test of serological IgG diagnosis by immunoblot assay of alveolar and cystic echinococcosis intended for confirmatory testing of a positive or equivocal result obtained through classic screening tests.The differential diagnosis of E. granulosus (E. g) versus E. multilocularis (E. m) species is made by searching for specific bands of either species in the reading area.

background
Echinococcosis are parasitic zoonoses due to tapeworm larvae belonging to the Echinococcus genus, parasiting the intestine of wild and domestic canines. Beside canines (mostly dogs and foxes for E. multilocularis), cats are sometimes found as accidental definitive hosts. Humans, as the other omnivorous and herbivore intermediate hosts, gets infected by ingestion of eggs, eliminated in nature or present on the fur of definitive host. Transmission in humans usually occur by ingestion of unsufficiently rinsed fruits or vegetables contaminated by feces of the definitive host. The egg releases a larva which migrates through blood or lymphatic stream before being stopped mostly by the liver, but also other organs such as lungs. Larvae develop in cysts, which can either grow progressively larger (E. granulosus) or form buds, which upon detachment form secondary cysts (E. multilocularis)
