In mice concurrently infected with Hymenolepis citelli and Nematospiroides dubius, survival of the tapeworm was prolonged, and there was an impairment of the efferent arm of the response to the cestode. The immunological rejection of a six cysticercoid primary H. citelli infection was delayed by the N. dubius infection. The growth of the cestode was poorer in concurrently infected mice, and this effect was rapid, being evident within 4 days of the N. dubius infection. Maximum biomass in the… CONTINUE READING
