Abstract

Molecular cloning of components of protective antigenic 
preparations have suggested that related parasite fatty acid binding 
proteins could form the basis of the well documented protective, 
immune cross reactivity between the parasitic trematode worms Fasciola 
hepatica and  Schistosoma  mansoni
  check for this species in other resources
. We have now confirmed the cross 
protective potential of  parasite fatty acid binding proteins and
suggest that it may be possible to produce a single vaccine
that would be effective against at least two parasites, F. hepatica 
and S. mansoni of veterinary and human importance respectively.

Keywords
