The molecules discussed in this review include some of the leading vaccine candidates in schistosomiasis: the glutathione S-transferases, triose-phosphate isomerase, glyceroldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenose and the 23 and 25 kDa surface integral membrane proteins. Mark Wright, Kathy Davem and Graham Mitchell highlight the possible biological roles and immunological relevance of these molecules.
