Abstract

The successful development of diagnostic tests capable of distinguishing human hookworm species will ultimately depend on an increase in our knowledge of their comparative biochemistry. Here, David Pritchard, Paul McKean and Gerry Schad describe some aspects of the comparative biochemistry of Necator americanus and Ancylostoma duodenale, and emphasize differences between the species that could form the basis of discriminatory diagnostic tests.
