Description: Trypanosoma cruzi-specific immune responses were evaluated in a total of 88 subjects living in areas endemic of Chagas disease of Argentina by IFN-gamma ELISPOT assays and immunoblotting. Positive T. cruzi antigen-induced IFN-gamma responses were detected in 42% of subjects evaluated (15/26 positive by conventional serology and 22/62 seronegative subjects). Using immunoblotting, T. cruzi-specific IgG reactivity was detected in all seropositive subjects and in 11% (7/61) of subjects negative by conventional serology. Measurements of T cell responses and antibodies by immunoblotting, in conjunction with conventional serology, might enhance the capability of detection of exposure to T. cruzi in endemic areas.
