Ultrastructure of spermiogenesis and the spermatozoon in Taenia crassiceps strobilae WFU strain (Cestoda, Cyclophyllidea, Taeniidae) from golden hamsters
Strobilae from Taenia crassiceps (WFU strain) were obtained from outbred hamsters (Mesocricetus auratus) by feeding them viable metacestodes maintained by intraperitoneal passage in female Balb/cExpand

Immunology of elastin: study of anti-elastin peptide antibodies by DOT immunobinding assay.
In order to further investigate the role of the immune system in the arteriosclerotic process, we investigated the anti-elastin peptide antibodies (AEAb) of the IgG and IgM types by DOT immunobindingExpand
