detection by elisa of circulating anti-blood fluke (carettacola, hapalotrema, and learedius) immunoglobulins in hawaiian green turtles (chelonia mydas).an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa) is described utilizing the surface glycocalyx crude antigen of adult blood trematodes learedius learedi, hapalotrema dorsopora, and carettacola hawaiiensis, for the detection of circulating antibodies (ab) in hawaiian green turtles (chelonia mydas) naturally infected with the parasites and with or without green turtle fibropapillomatosis (gtfp). a concentration of 10.0 micrograms/ml of antigen was optimal in terms of test specificity and sensitivity. ...19957776127
serological association between spirorchidiasis, herpesvirus infection, and fibropapillomatosis in green turtles from florida.serodiagnostic tests for detecting green turtle (chelonia mydas) antibody responses were developed to test the strength of association between exposure to spirorchid trematode antigens or herpesvirus antigens and having green turtle fibropapillomatosis (gtfp). plasma samples from 46 captive-reared green turtles, including paired pre- and 1-yr post-inoculation samples from 12 turtles with experimentally induced gtfp, were found by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa) to be negative for antib ...19989706559
