The migratory route of Toxocara canis in the mouse includes two phases: a hepato-pulmonary phase and a myotropic-neurotropic phase. A study was made of the migratory behaviour of larvae one year post-inoculation (p.i.) comparing the results to those obtained at the end of an initial experiment (day 63 p.i). The larval distribution per organ was already(More)
The mebendazole action on experimental murine toxocariasis, using different formulations and vehicles, was studied by means of the detection of antibodies and immune complexes by ELISA. After inoculation with 1000 embryonated Toxocara canis eggs, BALB/c mice were submitted to the anthelmintic treatment as follows: group 1 (control without treatment); group(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify and select common diseases of possible occupational origin, managed through the Spanish National Health System. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. SETTING Catalonia (Spain). PARTICIPANTS Data were collected on people over 15 years of age who were seen for the first time in a primary care clinic or were admitted to a hospital or had an(More)
We have studied the action of mebendazole on experimental murine toxocariasis using different formulations and vehicles. The treatment efficacy was evaluated by larval recovery after digesting several tissues. In the first part of the experiment, the drugs were administered on days 1-3 post infection (p.i.) inclusive (hepato-pulmonary phase of the(More)
This study describes the production, characterization and use of an anti-idiotype serum raised against the monoclonal antibody TC-1 which recognizes a T. canis excretory/secretory antigen (ES Ag) epitope. Anti-idiotypic (anti-Id or Ab2) antibodies were produced in rabbits using TC-1 F(ab')2 fragments; these anti-Id inhibited ES Ag binding to biotinylated(More)
