THE adult and juvenile forms of the liver fluke differ in their susceptibilities to a number of anthelmintics1. If it is assumed that anthelmintic drugs exert their effects by acting on enzymes or multiple enzyme systems in the parasite then the adult and immature fluke may not possess identical patterns of metabolism. Some of the pathways of intermediary metabolism in the adult fluke have recently been studied using substrates labelled with carbon-14 in conjunction with chromatographic and… CONTINUE READING
