ALTERNATE

Strongyloides stercoralis is a parasitic nematode found in tropical and subtropical regions. Because of low larval densities in feces, stool examination is a relatively insensitive diagnostic test; antibody detection offers increased sensitivity. Patients with latent infections who are immunosuppressed or receiving immunosuppressive therapy are at risk of life-threatening hyperinfection. The assay shows 92% sensitivity and 100% specificity compared to the CDC assay. Some crossreactivity may be observed with filarial and nematode infections.
