Article
Full-text available
Parasitic helminths and helminth-derived molecules have demonstrated to possess powerful anti-inflammatory properties and confirmed therapeutic effects on inflammatory diseases. The helminth Fasciola hepatica has been reported to suppress specific Th1 specific immune responses induced by concurrent bacterial infections, thus demonstrating its anti-...

Cell free protein synthesis has become a powerful method for the high-throughput production of proteins that are difficult to express in living cells. The protein SAP2 of Fasciola hepatica (FhSAP2), which has demonstrated to be both, an excellent vaccine candidate against experimental fascioliasis and a good antigen for serodiagnosis of human chron...
Article
Full-text available
Due to the unsatisfactory performance of parasitological diagnosis of human fascioliasis; the use of immunodiagnosis based on the detection of anti-Fasciola antibodies is traditionally used as a diagnostic alternative using total or purified parasite excretory-secretory products (ESPs). Glutathione S-transferase (GST) protein, one of the F. hepatic...
Article
Full-text available
Recently, we reported that a native Fasciola hepatica fatty acid binding protein (FABP) termed Fh12 is a powerful anti-inflammatory protein capable of suppressing the LPS-induced expression of inflammatory markers in vivo and in vitro. Because the purification of a protein in native form is, in many situations not cost-beneficial and unsuitable for...
