Abstract

Immunological Diagnosis of Lymphatic Filariasis in Dogs of Kerala, India using Filarial Antibody Detection Immunospot Test

Lymphatic filariasis caused by filarial nematodes, Brugia malayi and Wuchereria bancrofti is a major vector borne disease prevalent in human beings in the tropics. This study was carried out to facilitate the immunological diagnosis of lymphatic filariasis in domesticated pets in Kerala, India using Filarial Antibody detection spot / immunodot test using Signal MF Reagent.
