with the development of biochemical and molecular immunological techniques, the
diagnosis methods have been improved in which preparing natural parasite
antigens, and genetically engineered recombinant antigens have been applied by using
agglutination test, complement fixation methods to detect the human’s serum
antibodies for parasite identification of paragonimus infections. To improve
the detection rate, some scholars have used phage peptide library technology to
further improve the diagnostic effect on Paragonimus westermani in
humans. In this paper, we summarized recent studies on diagnosis, pathogenesis
and treatment of Paragonimus flukes in China.
