Trichinella spiralis thrives in both oxidative and glycolytic human muscle fibers






Journal of Neurology Neurosurgery & Psychiatry 43(3): 281-282

Trichinella spiralis thrives in both oxidative and glycolytic human muscle fibers

In a deltoid biopsy from a severe case of human trichinosis the larvae of T. spiralis did not exhibit any predilection for any particular fiber type. Type I and type II fibers were involved with a frequency proportionate to their distribution in the muscle sampled.
