What is this test?

In the Kala-azar endemic areas of India, Napierís aldehyde test has been used for a long time. The test relies on the jellification caused by the binding of the serum globulins to the formaldehyde. The serum globulins increase in a variety of infections and thus this test is rather non-specific. A positive reaction may also be seen in diseases like, tuberculosis, cirrhosis of liver, malaria, etc. Further, in kala-azar, the test becomes positive only when infection is atleast three months old and may remain positive even after six months of cure. Therefore a rapid, accurate, field suitable and non-invasive method of diagnosis of kala-azar has long been sought to circumvent the need for obtaining tissue specimens and preceding limitations. A range of assays have been developed to detect antileishmanial antibody.
