Efficacy of praziquantel treatment of schistosomiasis in a non-endemic country: a follow-up of parasitological, clinical and immunological parameters.
Schistosomiasis patients were immigrants to Czechoslovakia from Angola and Yemen. Most of them had light or moderate infections and felt subjectively healthy. They received treatment withExpand

  • 1 June 1992
Vaccination with liposome encapsulated adult crude antigen with and without coencapsulated immunomodulator (levamisole) in a mice/larval Ascaris suum model provided protection against a challengeExpand
Levamisole--biological response modifier in Taenia crassiceps--mouse experimental system.
  • S. Lukes
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Folia parasitologica
  • 1988
Levamisole, a common anthelminthic preparation, was used for the modification of the immune response of mice to vaccination with soluble antigen from Taenia crassiceps. The combination of antigenExpand
Artificial immunization of pigeons against Argas polonicus (Ixodoidea, Argasidae)
Abstract. Two subcutaneous injections of salivary gland antigen (SGA) or larval homogenate (LH) at 2‐week intervals induced a resistance in pigeons to Argas (Argas) polonicus Siuda, Hoogstraal,Expand
Changes in the white blood picture during experimental larval ascariasis, toxocariasis and toxascariasis.
  • S. Lukes
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Folia parasitologica
  • 1985
Haematological changes were studied in rabbits experimentally infected with different doses of Ascaris suum, Toxacara canis and Toxascaris leonina. The numbers of leucocytes, eosinophiles andExpand
Antibody-mediated response of pigeons to Argas polonicus larval feeding and characterization of larval antigen.
Circulating antibodies to larval Argas polonicus antigen detected in the blood of pigeons by means of ELISA reach their highest level 3-6 days post-tick attachment. During 6-8 days post infestationExpand
Dependency of resistance of mice immunized against Taenia crassiceps on the dose of soluble antigen.
  • S. Lukes
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Folia parasitologica
  • 1987
Mice immunized with a single dose (1.25-40 micrograms/mouse) of soluble antigen from Taenia crassiceps cysticerci developed a 62.9-85.0% resistance. Maximum effect was achieved in the groupsExpand
Correlation of the results of IFAT-DASS and ELISA tests in experimental cysticercosis of mice.
The sera of mice experimentally infected with Taenia crassiceps were tested for the occurrence of the antibodies by the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and indirect immunofluorescence usingExpand
Passive transfer of humoral resistance against adults of the tsetse fly, Glossina palpalis palpalis (Diptera, Glossinidae), in rabbits.
The possibility of passive transfer of rabbit humoral immunity against tsetse fly bites was investigated for the first time. Partial immunity of recipient animals was achieved after two intravenousExpand
[Evaluation of the results of intradermal tests in spontaneous cysticercosis in cattle].
The diagnostic value of intradermal tests was verified on 126 bulls (out of this number 32 autopsically positive) subject to intravital diagnostics of bovine cysticercosis. As allergen were usedExpand
