  1. Panel A: Comparison of the rCs CB ELISA with microscopic examination of stool samples as the gold standard method for diagnosis of clonorchiasis in 276 human sera. rCs CB ELISA test showed 81% specificity and 79% sensitivity with reference to stool examination. Panel B: Number of the sera from individuals infected with other helminths used for cross-reactivity tests.
