Figure 4: (a) Western blot with Taenia solium cysticerci E/S Ag was tested with 33 hamster sera infected with T. solium tapeworms (1–33). Preimmune (lane −) and hyperimmune hamster sera anti-T. solium cysticercus E/S Ag (lane +) was used as negative and positive controls. WB shows representative samples of the assay. Number of lanes is corresponding to serum number of the assay. (b) Western blot with Taenia solium cysticercus CE was tested with 33 hamster sera infected with T. solium tapeworms (1–33). Preimmune (lane −) and hyperimmune hamster sera anticysticerci CE (lane +) were used as negative and positive controls. WB shows representative samples of the assay. Number of lanes is corresponding to serum number of the assay.
