The study reported here investigated acquired resistance of mice and pigs to challenge-infections with Schistosoma japonicum. Two morphologically indistinguishable isolates of the parasite (from the Anhui and Zhejiang provinces of China), which could be typed by polymerase chain reaction-linked restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis (PCR-RFLP), were used for the infections. In two parallel infection studies, 60 female outbred NMRI mice and 29 Danish Landrace/Yorkshire/Duroc crossbred… CONTINUE READING
