ECHINOCOCCUS ANTIBODIES (HYDATID)
Echinococcosis is an infection by tapeworms in the Echinococcus genus and is a general term that covers three specific diseases: cystic echinococcosis, alveolar hydatid echinococcosis and polycystic echinococcosis.
Echinococcus Antibodies are antibodies produced by the body in response to an echinococcosis infection.
Echinococcus tapeworms have a more complex life cycle than other parasites that involves a definitive host and an intermediate host.
Humans are accidental hosts and do not typically play a part in the life cycle.
Echinococcosis to be asymptomatic for many years. Many cases are only discovered incidentally during imaging for an unrelated reason.

Mr Koster - Berkshire
“I would like to thank you for your excellent service and help. I was called on the day you received my samples for a “well man check plus” test by Eileen Hall and was explained how things would proceed. My results came through quickly and a day or 2 later Eileen and I spoke again, at length. Eileen explained my results in a professional, yet friendly and attentive manner, answered my questions and ensured that I was clear about everything. I felt cared for. My report arrived the next day and included recommended life changes and suggestions, and possible further tests that may help me. The whole experience showed that having a health check can be an easy, agreeable and clarifying procedure and one that even the most reticent person could embrace with ease.”
