Maternal transmission of asexually proliferative Mesocestoides corti tetrathyridia (Cestoda) in mice.

Abstract

Asexually proliferative Mesocestoides corti tetrathyridia were studied to test the hypothesis of in utero transmission in mice and define more clearly the path of transmammary transmission.
