Observations on the infection of bulinid snails with Schistosoma mattheei. II. The mechanism of resistance to infection



Observations on the infection of bulinid snails with Schistosoma mattheei. II. The mechanism of resistance to infection



Parasitology 62(1): 161-170



A histological study was carried out on batches of a refractory strain of Bulinus truncatus and 2 highly susceptible strains of B. africanus killed at various time intervals (from 7 hours to over 3 months) after exposure to infection with Schistosoma mattheei miracidia. It was found that only a small fraction (less than 1%) of the miracidia penetrated B. truncatus, and that they penetrated only a few of the snails exposed.
