Sorting out difficulties in immunological diagnosis of neurocysticercosis: Development and assessment of real time loop mediated isothermal amplification of cysticercal DNA in blood

Among various immunological tests available for diagnosis of neurocysticercosis (NCC), only EITB (Electroimmunotransfer blot for detection of anticysticercal antibodies) had gained widespread acceptance. However EITB is not available widely and is costly (Indian rupees 15,000/− approximately). We evaluated utility of Loop mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay for detection of Taenia solium cox1 gene in blood of patients with NCC.
