Neurocysticercosis, caused by infestation of the nervous system by the larval form of Taenia solium, continues to baffle the neurologist, because of varied clinical manifestations. A large body of the literature related to this disease is clinically oriented, enough attention has not been given to parasite related factors modulating the host response. Using(More)
Subunit vaccine prepared from VP1 protein of foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) types 0 and Asia 1 protected guinea pigs against FMD and also induced high levels of antibody. Liposomes have been used as a safe and potent immunological adjuvant for FMD vaccines. Vaccines prepared from inactivated virus types 0 and Asia 1 encapsulated in liposomes protected(More)
The nervous system ofCysticercus cellulosae, the metacestode stage of the tapewormTaenia solium, was delineated using histochemical methods for the localization of the enzyme markers; nonspecific esterase and acetylcholinesterase. The main features of the nervous system include a pair of cerebral ganglia, a circumcerebral nerve ring, a rostellar nerve ring,(More)
Growth pattern of foot-and-mouth disease virus types 0 and Asia 1 in BHK-21 Razi cells was compared; while type 0 virus grew in high titre, Asia 1 virus was produced in low titre. Inhibition of host protein synthesis in type 0 virus-infected cells was more pronounced than in Asia 1 virus-infected cells. Foot-and-mouth disease virus type 0 infected cells(More)
