Isolates of Cuban Pseudosuccinea columella susceptible and non-susceptible to Fasciola hepatica miracidial infection were compared for cellular reaction to miracidial development, shell morphometrics, mantle pigmentation pattern, and egg laying behaviour. At 24 h post-exposure, non-susceptible snails showed an early cellular host reaction to encapsulate and phagocytise the miracidium, whereas viable transforming miracidia were observed in exposed susceptible snails, indicating that non… CONTINUE READING
