Zinc deficiency and host response to helminth infection: Echinostoma caproni infections in CBA mice



Zinc deficiency and host response to helminth infection: Echinostoma caproni infections in CBA mice



Journal of Helminthology 70(1): 7-12



The effect of zinc deficiency on the response of CBA mice to infection with Echinostoma caproni was examined. Young CBA mice were allocated to one of 3 dietary groups: a group fed a zinc-deficient diet ad libitum, a control group pair-fed a zinc-sufficient diet and a control group fed a zinc-sufficient diet ad libitum. The mice on the zinc-deficient diet gained significantly less weight than the pair-fed controls.
