A cambendazole-resistan t (CR) strain of Haemonchus contortus, the large stomach nematode of sheep, had similar in vitro growth characteristic s compared to the parent strain (BPL). When the in vitro cultivation system was modified to detect drug resistance : (1) exsheathe d infective larvae of the BPL strain did not develop in a culture medium with a concentration of 2.5 /ug/rnl thiabendazol e (TBZ), but the CR strain developed to the mid-4th larval stage in 6 days at the same concentration of… CONTINUE READING
