Drug activity against Onchocerca gutturosa males in vitro: a model for chemotherapeutic research on onchocerciasis.


An in vitro system for chemotherapeutic research using adult male Onchocerca gutturosa has been developed as a model for O. volvulus. Using a culture system consisting of medium MEM + 10% heat inactivated foetal calf serum (IFCS) + LLCMK2 (monkey kidney) feeder cells in an atmosphere of 5% CO2 in air, we examined the effects of a range of antiparasitic… (More)
