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, bloody diarrhea and weight loss. It can result in intestinal lesions and liver abscess.
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.
