The life cycle of Schistosoma mansoni under germ free conditions



The life cycle of Schistosoma mansoni under germ free conditions



Journal of Parasitology 71(4): 519-520



Two mice were experimentally infected with germ free or axenic S. mansoni cercariae (GF mice) and 2 were infected with cercariae from conventional hamster liver (CV mice). 61 and 84 days after infection one mouse from each group was necropsied for worm recovery and egg count. GF mice produced more eggs than CV mice.
