Immunological control of cutaneous myiasis of sheep caused by Lucilia cuprina larvae has been an elusive goal. Antibody to antigens derived from the peritrophic membrane can stunt or kill larvae in a dose dependent fashion. Thus efficacy of vaccines employing these antigens may be limited by the amount of antibody in skin available for ingestion by larvae. The potential for elevating antibody concentrations in skin by intradermal immunisation with the recombinant peritrophic membrane antigens… CONTINUE READING
