Radial-counterimmunoelectrophoresis (RCIE) on cellulose acetate membranes is a recently developed simple and rapid immunodiagnostic technique which has been evaluated, in this preliminary study, for the diagnosis of hydatid disease i comparison with the conventional counter.immunoelectrophoresis (CIE). Crude fluid from several sheep hydatid cysts was used as antigen in both tests on 49 non hydatid and 53 hydatid sera obtained from patients with surgically-confirmed hydatidosis. The RCIE test correlated well with the CIE technique. The rapidity of this technique suggests its application in the diagnosis of hydatid disease and in epidemiological studies when samples from a large population have to be screened.

Abstract

Radial-counterimmunoelectrophoresis (RCIE) on cellulose acetate membranes is a recently developed simple and rapid immunodiagnostic technique which has been evaluated, in this preliminary study, for the diagnosis of hydatid disease i comparison with the conventional counter.immunoelectrophoresis (CIE). Crude fluid from several sheep hydatid cysts was used as antigen in both tests on 49 non hydatid and 53 hydatid sera obtained from patients with surgically-confirmed hydatidosis. The RCIE test correlated well with the CIE technique. The rapidity of this technique suggests its application in the diagnosis of hydatid disease and in epidemiological studies when samples from a large population have to be screened.
