Abstract

We used an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay system to compare prevalence and levels of systemic and local antibody to Giardia lamblia in different populations. Serial blood and milk samples were collected simultaneously from lactating women in Tex as and Mexico. IgG antibody to G. lamblia was present in 118 (77%) of 153 sera from 27 Mexican mothers but in only 51 (24%) of 214 sera obtained from 28 Texan mothers (P
