Schistosomes, echinostomes and snails: comparative immunobiology



Schistosomes, echinostomes and snails: comparative immunobiology



Parasitology Today 11(3): 120-124



How Schistosoma mansoni and Echinostoma paraensei (which have a common snail host, Biomphalaria glabrata) evade the host immune response in fundamentally different ways is discussed with regard to interference with the internal defence responses of the snail, and differences in the host responses to the 2 species.
