Mastomys natalensis as an experimental host for Brugia malaye subperiodic


Mastomys natalensis as an experimental host for Brugia malaye subperiodic



Southeast Asian Journal of Tropical Medicine and Public Health 6(3): 328-337



ISSN/ISBN: 0125-1562

PMID: 1221502

Infective larvae of B. malayi subperiodic obtained by dissection of infected Aedes togoi were injected s.c. into the scrotal region of M. natalensis. Of 58 infected male M. natalensis, 81% showed consistently or intermittently detectable microfilaremia; whereas in 19% of the animals no microfilaremia was detected at any stage. The mean prepatent period was 136 days; the microfilarial density varied from 1-535/20 mm3 blood. In animals with consistently detectable and generally higher microfilaremia an average of 13.1 live adult worms were found. An average of 6.4 adult worms were found in animals with intermittently detectable and generally lower microfilaremia. An average of 1.5 worms were found in animals which at no stage showed detectable microfilaremia. A correlation between worm burden and prepatent period was observed in the individual groups. From the total of 520 live adult worms recovered at necropsy, 37% were found in the lungs, 29% in the parenchyma of the testes and 34% in the lymphatic system; 47% of live fertile female worms were found in the lymphatic system; 52% of infertile female worms were detected in the lungs. Encapsulated dead worms (380) were found, most of them (98%) in the lymphatic system. Of 900 live and dead worms, 61% were found in the region of the lymphatic system.
