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.

“Just wanted to say what a totally professional set up you have. 3 weeks ago a UTI sample came back negative from whoever my GP uses, although it was really obvious that’s what I had. So I decided to use medichecks to get a test result done privately. Guess what? The test came back positive & I am now being treated for the problem. If it was’nt for medichecks I would still be suffering a very painful UTI. Thank you very much ,I am eternally grateful.
