  • a Data from Fig. 1 were analyzed utilizing the area below a ROC curve. The cutoff level was set at an OD450 of 0,122. The number of positive samples for individuals infected with T. cruzi or Leishmania, patients suffering IDC, and EHS are indicated. Sensitivities and specificities of the assay are expressed as percentages.
