Growth and fecundity of Oesophagostomum dentatum in high-level infections and after transplantation into naive pigs

Abstract

 This experiment was designed to examine the growth, proportion of stages, and fecundity of an Oesophagostomum dentatum population by transplantation of a known small number of worms from a high-density population into helminth-naive recipient pigs. Approximately 1,500 4-week-old worms [69% fourth-stage larvae (L4), 31% adult worms] were transplanted into… (More)
