From: Re-visiting the detection of porcine cysticercosis based on full carcass dissections of naturally Taenia solium infected pigs

Taenia solium infection level and stage Ag-ELISA-positive Ag-ELISA-negative Sensitivity (95% CI)
Carcasses with ≥ 1 cysticercus (n = 38) 26 12 68 (51–83)
Carcasses with ≥ 10 cysticerci (n = 22) 20 2 91 (71–99)
Carcasses with ≥ 1 viable cysticercus (n = 22) 20 2 91 (71–99)
Carcasses with ≥ 10 viable cysticerci (n = 13) 13 0 100 (75–100)
