Eight to 10-week old Schistosoma mansoni males from unisexual infections were examined histochemically for neutral lipids and lipase activity. In addition, in situ fixed pairs were examined for lipase activity. Neutral lipid content of males from unisexual infections was variable and lipase activity was minimal. Following 1 h incubation at 37 degrees C in(More)
Schistosoma mansoni sporocysts originally derived from monomiracidially infected Biomphalaria glabrata snails were serially transplanted into the cephalopedal sinus of anesthetized snails by the microsurgical implantation of fragments of parasitized hepatopancreas and ovotestis. Three to six passages each of five male and five female clones were maintained(More)
Heterosexual intra- and interspecific chemoattraction studies were done in polycarbonate chambers without barriers using 8- to 10-week-oldSchistosoma mansoni from mice, 10-week-oldSchistosoma japonicum from hamsters, and 14-week-oldSchistosoma haematobium from hamsters. Experiments were done for up to 4 hr at 37 °C in a humidified incubator. Single worms(More)
Among 10,072 examinations of concentrated stools, Strongyloides stercoralis rhabditiform larvae were found in 93, and filariform larvae in four. In two of the four cases harboring filariform larvae, subsequent stools revealed only rhabditiform larvae, but filariform larvae continued to be found in the stools and sputum of the other two cases. It was(More)
Five male and 5 female clones of Schistosoma mansoni were established and maintained for 3 yr by the serial microsurgical transplantation of sporocysts from infected to uninfected Biomphalaria glabrata snails. The clones were initially derived from 10 randomly selected snails with monomiracidial infections. Clones were characterized by several criteria,(More)
