Reagents, Serology, Parasite, Schistosoma Species, IgG Antibody
Definition : Serology reagents intended to detect immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies to species of Schistosoma, a genus of trematode parasites (blood flukes), a class of Platyhelminthes. Schistosoma of several species (e.g., haematobium, indicum, japonicum) are pathogenic to humans; the parasites typically enter through the skin of humans who come in contact with infected water. The adult worms are usually found in the veins, causing hematuria, dysentery, and bladder irritation.
