The subclass antibodies against IgG1, IgG3 and IgG4 in sera of the patients with chronic Schistosomiasis japonica were detected before treatment, and after treatment--6 and 12 months respectively, using Biotin-Avidin-ELISA (BA-ELISA) established by purified 31/32 KD antigen from the adult worms. At the same time IgG1 and IgM were examined by the standard ELISA. False positive reaction with normal control and cross reaction with other parasitic diseases have not been observed. The IgG1 and IgG3 subclasses showed high sensitivity and specificity and reduced quickly 6 months after treatment. These results indicate that the level of specific IgG1 and IgG4 to the 31/32 KD adult worm protein has high value for diagnosis of Schistosomiasis japonica and evaluation of the curative efficiency of the disease.
