Abstract

Gebeyaw Getnet Mekonnen characterised the proteomic composition of different populations of extracellular vesicles (EVs) from Schistosoma haematobium adult worms and assessed the vaccine and diagnostic efficacy of selected EV-membrane proteins. He found that S. haematobium EV tetraspanins are potential diagnostic candidates, which has resulted in a patent.
