Description

Taenia solium cysticercosis is the mot important cause of acquired epilepsy in developing countries. T. solium produces excretory/secretory products (ESP) at the interface between parasite and host. The biological functions of ESP are poorly understood. We propose a mass spectrometic analysis of ESP to better understand their role in host-parasite interactions and to refine existing immunodiagnostic techniques.
