Experimental infection of sheep and monkeys with the camel strain of Echinococcus granulosus



Experimental infection of sheep and monkeys with the camel strain of Echinococcus granulosus



Helminth zoonoses: 24-28



Three Cercopithecus aethiops monkeys and 10 black head sheep each received ~10 gravid E. granulosus proglottids by mouth. The proglottids had been obtained from puppies artificially infected with E. granulosus protoscoleces of camel origin. 2 monkeys and 3 sheep were left as uninfected controls. One year after infection the monkeys' lungs were spotted with transparent cysts 5-10 mm in diameter. They lacked internal protoscoleces. Similar cysts were found in other viscera.
