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.
