Paper electrophoretic pattern of serum protein fractions in various parasitic diseases

  • 1Department of Parasitology and Institute of Parasitic Diseases, Catholic Medical College, Korea.


Electrophoretic patterns of human blood serum protein were studied in parasitic diseases including 19 cases of clonlrchiasis, 29 cases of clonorchiasis and other helminthiasis and 22 cases of healthy controls in Kim-hae area. The same study was made on 32 cases of ascariasis, 56 cases of trichocephaliasis, 80 cases of ascariasis and trichocephaliasis, 9 cases of amebiasis and 44 cases of healthy controls in the Seoul Juvenile Center. The total serum protein was performed by Folin method and the serum protein fraction test by Durrum's paper electrophoretic method. The results were as follows: In the case of clonolrchiasis, the total serum protein, albumin fraction and A/G ratio decreased and alpha (1) globulin fraction increased twice as much as in the case of healthy controls. In the case of clonorchiasis and other helminthiasis, alpha(1) globulin fractions increased. In the case of ascariasis, albumin fractions increased but alpha(1) globulin fractions decreased. In the case of ascariasis and trichocephaliasis, alpha(2) and beta globulin fractions decreased. In the case of amebiasis, alpha(1) globulin decresed.
