Abstract

Total IgE, specific IgE and IgG antibodies directed against Strongyloides stercoralis antigens were measured in the serum of 8 asymptomatic individuals with parasitologically proven strongyloidiasis, 10 patients with symptomatic strongyloidiasis and 8 with a severe form of the disease. No correlation was found between any of the immunological quantities evaluated and the clinical form of strongyloidiasis. We suggest that other responses may be involved in determining clinical manifestations of this parasitosis.
