Cross-immunity and immunological memory in Hymenolepis diminuta and Hymenolepis nana



Cross-immunity and immunological memory in Hymenolepis diminuta and Hymenolepis nana



Parassitologia recd 23(1/3): 217-218



To determine if there was cross-immunity between H. diminuta and H. nana, female CD outbred mice infected with 3 cysticercoids of H. diminuta were re-infected 8 weeks later with 10 to 50 eggs or 5 to 25 cysticercoids of H. nana. 18 mice re-infected with H. nana eggs were killed 14.5 to 22 days after infection together with an equal number of infected controls. 14 days after infection all control mice were parasitized and about half of the re-infected mice had eliminated all parasites.
