Figure 3: Diagrammatic representation of immunoperoxidase assay (IPA)/immune fluorescent assay (IFA) for antisheath antibodies performed with 1/5 diluted sera : (a) Sixteen human filarial sera were tested against microfilaria of W. bancrofti, S. digitata and B. malayi by IPA; (b) Twelve human filarial sera were tested against microfilaria of W. bancrofti, S. digitata and B. malayi by IFA; and (c) Four of human sera and three of cattle sera were incubated with soluble Setaria antigen and tested against microfilaria of W. bancrofti, and S. digitata for reactivity and scored as follows: ◻ No reactivity; ◼4+; •3+; ▴2+ ♦1+
