Schistosoma mansoni and Trichobilharzia ocellata: comparison of secreted cercarial eicosanoids.

Abstract

Schistosoma mansoni cercarial transformation and early stages of penetration can be correlated to specific eicosanoid products. Cercarial eicosanoids are suggested to play immunoregulatory roles during penetration. We examined production of cercarial eicosanoids by S. mansoni compared with that of the duck parasite Trichobilharzia ocellata after incubation… (More)
