New Entamoeba Histolytica Monoclonal Antibodies

E. histolytica is an anaerobic parasite that causes amoebic dysentery.

It infects humans and other primates via the fecal oral route. Symptoms include abdominal pain, bloodydiarrhea and weight loss. It can result in intestinal lesions and liver abscesses.

ViroStat has just released a set of new mouse monoclonal antibodies to E. histolytica. These new antibodies function in ELISA and lateral flow applications and thus serve as excellent tools for the detection of this parasite.
