Infection and immunity

Human secretory immune response to fatty acid-binding protein fraction from Giardia lamblia.


PMID 11895992

Abstract

The secretory immune response in humans infected with Giardia lamblia was studied by using saliva samples and an 8-kDa antigen capable of binding fatty acids. This antigen was not recognized by saliva samples from healthy individuals. The antigen may be useful in diagnostic studies of G. lamblia infection.
