Lucilia cuprina: inhibition of larval growth induced by immunization of host sheep with extracts of larval peritrophic membrane.


A culture system has been established to produce gram amounts of peritrophic membrane from larvae of the sheep blowfly, Lucilia cuprina. Peritrophic membrane obtained from this culture has been used to immunize sheep. The immunization produced an immune response which resulted in the average weight of larvae on immunized sheep being only 50% of that of… (More)
