Hymenolepis diminuta: source of protective antigens as determined by irradiation and chemical elimination of immunizing worms



Hymenolepis diminuta: source of protective antigens as determined by irradiation and chemical elimination of immunizing worms



Experimental Parasitology 541: 1-6



Prior infection with H. diminuta, whose strobila-forming capacity was completely or partially suppressed by irradiation, conferred on mice a degree of protection against challenge which was indistinguishable from that stimulated by worms with fully developed strobilae. Irradiated day-2 or day-3 worms (prestrobilates) were as immunogenic as worms of the same age which were not irradiated.
