AEROBIC SALIVARY BACTERIA IN WILD AND CAPTIVE KOMODO DRAGONS
During the months of November 1996, August 1997, and March 1998, saliva and plasma samples were collected for isolation of aerobic bacteria from 26 wild and 13 captive Komodo dragons (VaranusExpand

Chemotactic response of macrophages to Acanthamoeba castellanii antigen and antibody-dependent macrophage-mediated killing of the parasite.
The chemotactic potential of antigens of Acanthamoeba castellanii for macrophages and the ability of naive and immune rat peritoneal macrophages to kill A. castellanii in vitro were assessed. TheExpand

Successful Immunization Against Acanthamoeba Keratitis in a Pig Model
The feasibility of inducing protective immunity to Acanthamoeba keratitis was tested in a pig model. Experiments were designed to determine if ocular infection with Acanthamoeba trophozoites wouldExpand

Trichinella spiralis: behavior, structure, and biochemistry of larvae following exposure to components of the host enteric environment.
Four layers are present on the surface of infective larvae of Trichinella spiralis isolated from host muscle in pepsin-HCl. Trypsin treatment of pepsin-HCl isolated worms caused partial degradationExpand

Biological and immunological characteristics of Trichinella pseudospiralis.
In 1972 three new species were proposed for the genus Trichinella, which for 137 years had contained a single species, Trichinella spiralis (Owen,1835). One of these proposed species, TrichinellaExpand

Changes in RNA in mouse trichinosis.
The RNA per unit protein of trichinella-infected diaphragm muscle increased as the number of muscle larvae present increased and it was shown that there is a minimum number of larvae required forExpand
