Resumen

YASUDA, Maria Aparecida Shikanai et al. Levels of antityphoid agglutinins in hepatosplenic schistosomiasis patients. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1982, vol.16, n.2, pp.107-113. ISSN 1518-8787.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101982000200006.

Antityphoid agglutinins in hepatosplenic Schistosomiasis patients (N = 43) and controls (N = 83) sera were measured. Higher antityphoid agglutinins (H and/or O and/or Vi) and higher anti-O agglutinin rate were observed in patients affected by Schistosomiais. Although a larger exposure to these antigens could have been responsible for the higher antibody rates observed in these patients, the agglutinin levels suggest there is in fact no deficiency in antibody synthesis, as has often been suggested to explain the low anti-O antibody rates found in chronic Salmonella bacteremia in patients with Schistosomiasis.

Palabras clave : Hepatosplenic schistosomiasis; Typhoid agglutinins; Salmonella.
