Antigenicity of a Protective Recombinant Filarial Protein in Human Bancroftian Filariasis

A 92-kDa fusion protein that encodes amino acids 1-479 of a 62-kDa Brugia malayi antigen induces resistance to microfilariae in mice. The antigenicity of this recombinant protein was explored in asymptomatic residents of Wuchereria bancrofti-endemk areas of Papua New Guinea and Egypt. Unlike sera fr...
