Schistosoma mansoni miracidial host-finding: Species specificity of an Egyptian strain

  title={Schistosoma mansoni miracidial host-finding: Species specificity of an Egyptian strain},
  author={Martin Kalbe and Bernhard Haberl and Wilfried Haas},
  journal={Parasitology Research},
The effect of snail-conditioned water (SCW) from Biomphalaria alexandrina, a pigmented and an albino strain of B. glabrata, and Lymnaea stagnalis on the host-finding behavior of miracidia of two Brazilian and one Egyptian strain of Schistosoma mansoni was studied. Miracidia of the Egyptian strain significantly preferred their suitable host B. alexandrina versus the other snail species with their behavior patterns of host location and their responses after contact with the host. However… CONTINUE READING
