Nippostrongylus brasiliensis infections in mice were terminated more rapidly than in rats and immunologically induced damage occurred earlier. Like rats, mice expelled damaged worms more rapidly than normal worms. Recipients of cells from the spleen or mesenteric node of immune mice expelled their worms by day 8 of the infection. Recipients of cells alone or antiserum alone did not expel their worms by day 5 but mice given both cells and antiserum expelled their worms by this stage of the… CONTINUE READING
