The immune response of wild rainbow trout salmo gairdneri richardson to naturally acquired plerocercoid infections of diphyllobothrium dendriticum nitzsch 1824 and diphyllobothrium dendriticum creplin 1825



The immune response of wild rainbow trout salmo gairdneri richardson to naturally acquired plerocercoid infections of diphyllobothrium dendriticum nitzsch 1824 and diphyllobothrium dendriticum creplin 1825



Journal of Fish Biology 35(6): 781-794



Natural infections of rainbow trout with two species of Diphyllobothrium result in a host inflammatory response encapsulating the plerocercoid. The encapsulating cyst, observed by light and electron microscopy, comprises leucocytes, fibroblasts and collagenous connective tissue and is infiltrated with a blood vascular network. An indirect immunofluorescence technique and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) has shown that specific antibodies are elicited by the fish host to these Diphyllobothrium spp. These antibodies have been semi-quantitatively measured by ELISA and correlated with worm burdens in individual fish.
