Immunoglobulin isotype responses and parasite-specific antigen recognition were investigated in experimental Angiostrongylus costaricensis infection in two different mouse strains. Even in a low-dose infection with third-stage larvae (L3), BALB/c mice showed high mortality until 28 days postinfection (p.i.) in association with a low patency rate in surviving animals. On the other hand, low mortality and a high rate of patent infection was observed in C57BL/10 mice. Parasite-specific IgM, total… CONTINUE READING
