Detection of DNA of nocturnally periodic Brugia malayi in night and day blood samples by a polymerase chain reaction-ELISA-based method using an internal control DNA

, : Detection of DNA of nocturnally periodic Brugia malayi in night and day blood samples by a polymerase chain reaction-ELISA-based method using an internal control DNA. American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 62(2): 291-296

An internal control was used in a PCR-ELISA-based technique to detect the Hha I repeat of Brugia malayi. A single microfilaria added to 200 micro l of blood was reliably detected. The assay was evaluated on field samples from persons living in an area endemic for Anopheles-transmitted, nocturnally periodic B. malayi in central Sulawesi, Indonesia. Examination of night blood of 138 individuals for the presence of microfilariae by filtration revealed 44 microfilaria carriers.
