Survival of protoscolices of Echinococcus granulosus at constant temperatures



Survival of protoscolices of Echinococcus granulosus at constant temperatures



Journal of Parasitology 64(1): 78-82



Parallel tests were conducted on intact cysts from both lung and liver of sheep, and on protoscoleces stored within 1-ml samples of hydatid fluid. The longest survival times of any of the samples tested at each temperature were: -20 deg C, 1 hour; -10 deg C. 4 hours; 1 deg C, 16 days; 10 deg C, 16 days; 20 deg C, 8 days; 30 deg C, 4 days; 40 deg C 2 days, and 50 deg C, 2 hours. In general, protoscoleces survived better within intact cysts than when in hydatid fluid.
