Further observations on the development of the Indonesian strain of Schistosoma japonicum in white mice and preliminary studies on the Indonesian, Philippine and Formosan strains in the Taiwan monkey



Further observations on the development of the Indonesian strain of Schistosoma japonicum in white mice and preliminary studies on the Indonesian, Philippine and Formosan strains in the Taiwan monkey



Proceedings of the International Conference on schistosomiasis, Cairo, Egypt, 18-25 October 1975 Volume I: 173-179



White mice were exposed to 50 cercariae of the Indonesian strain of Schistosoma japonicum. The prepatent period was about 6 weeks and faecal egg counts ranged from 400 to 800/g/day. At 7 and 8 weeks a mean of 59% of the worms was recovered. The estimated mean number of eggs produced/female/g faeces/day was 46. At 6 weeks rather more eggs were found in the liver than in the small intestine, but at 7 and 8 weeks most were in the small intestine.
