Abstract

Two rapid immunodiognostic tests (ICT Filariasis test(R)), developed for the quick diagnosis of Wuchereria boncrofti infection, have been validated in laboratory and field situation, The aim of this study was to assess the performance and usefulness of this antigen capture essay as a diagnostic method in three foci of lymphatic filariasis, located in the South Pacific (Society orchipelago, French Polynesia), with different levels of endemicity . A sample of 1,595 patients was tested with this assay in parallel with a reference Og4C3 antigen capture assay and microfilariae detection. A second-generation ICT test, available for whole blood analysis, was also tested inparallel with the first generation test, developed far serum analysis, on a sample of 50 reference cases. The correspondence between the results obtained with the two rapid tests was excellent, without any influence of rheumatoid factors, but the sensitivity was in both cases slightly inferior to the one obtained with the ELISA reference test. This seems particularly truein epidemiological situation where a high proportion of amicrofilaraemic. adult worm carriers are observed.
