Genetic influence on the kinetics and associated pathology of the early stage (intestinal-hepatic) migration of Ascaris suum in mice.


The generative mechanism(s) of aggregation and predisposition to Ascaris lumbricoides and A. suum infections in their host population are currently unknown and difficult to elucidate in humans and pigs for ethical/logistical reasons.
