    The article investigates the antigenic properties of hydatid fluid from the scolices of tapeworms. Base on the results, the cyst filled with liquid can be used as an antigen in all diagnostic immunological assays and can act as an anaphylactic substance. Hydatid cyst contains a substance with a...
