To elucidate the roles of IgE antibody in host responses to helminth infection, selective IgE-deficient SJA/9 mice were infected with the nematode parasites Nippostrongylus brasiliensis, which elicits remarkable potentiated IgE production, and Trichinella spiralis, which induces strong anti-Trichinella IgE antibody production in normal mice. The kinetics of blood eosinophilia, worm burden after primary infection, and resistance to secondary infection in SJA/9 mice were the same in both… CONTINUE READING
