The relationship between the immune response and the pathogenesis of the disease was studied in different primary and secondary experimental Fasciola hepatica infections of goats. The establishment of the infection, measured as percentage of recovered flukes at the necropsy, was similar in primarily and secondarily infected animals (between 19.7% and(More)
The polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) function, in terms of oxidative response during bacterial phagocytosis, was studied using a Luminol-Dependant Chemiluminiscence (LDCL) assay in primarily and secondarily Fasciola hepatica infected goats. Polymorphonuclear leukocytes of F. hepatica infected goats displayed lower LDCL responses than naive goats. The(More)
