Table 2 Number of CE patients according to the evolution of IgG levels observed between D030 and D365 for anti-B2t, anti-2B2t, and both antibodies (2B2t or B2t), and determination of the probability of being relapse-free

From: Promising proteins detected by Western blot from Echinococcus granulosus protoscoleces for predicting early post-surgical outcomes in CE-affected Tunisian children

Antibody response Evolution NRCE, n (%) RCE, n (%) Probability of being relapse-free (%)
Anti-B2t IgG Decrease* 25 (64) 6 (30) 81
Increase 5 (13) 8 (40)  
Stability 9 (23) 6 (30)  
Anti-2B2t IgG Decrease 21 (54) 7 (35) 75
Increase 9 (23) 10 (50)  
Stability 9 (23) 3 (15)  
Anti-(B2t or 2B2t) IgG Decrease* 32 (82) 9 (45) 78
Increase 4 (10) 7 (35)  
Stability 3 (8) 4 (20)
