Immunodiagnosis of angiostrongyliasis with monoclonal antibodies recognizing a circulating antigen of mol. wt 91,000 from Angiostrongylus cantonensis.

In the analysis of excretory-secretory (ES) antigens from infective third-stage larvae (L3) of Angiostrongylus cantonensis, one major component of mol.wt 91,000 was not precipitated by pooled sera of patients with eosinophilic meningoencephalitis. Monoclonal antibodies (Mc Ab) secreted from two hybridoma cell lines, established against somatic antigens of L3, recognized this molecule but with different epitope specificities indicated by an additivity index (A.I.) of 83%. The 2 Mc Ab (TD2 and 3A5) belonged to IgG2a and IgM classes, respectively. Combinations of TD2 and 3A5 were used in a sensitive enzyme-linked fluorescent assay (ELFA) for the immunodiagnosis of human angiostrongyliasis. The double-antibody sandwich ELFA method was applied firstly to sera from experimentally infected rats using either TD2 or 3A5 to coat the assay plates. Two fluorescence unit (F.U.) peaks appeared in sera from infected rats collected 18 and 44 days after infection. Specimens from 35 patients were tested, all cerebrospinal fluids (CSF) and most sera (88%) showed positive reactions and the average F.U. of CSF was greater than that of serum.[1]
