The histology of mouse secondary lymphoid tissue was examined following infection of Trichinella spiralis. ICR/CD-1 mice were orally infected with 200 T. spiralis and sacrificed at either 0, 3, 7, 14, 28 or 56 days after nematode administration. The animals were bled and sacrificed, and mesenteric lymph nodes were removed from each animal. They were fixed in 10% neutral buffered formalin, embedded in paraffin, and cut in 4-micron sections. Examination of serial sections demonstrated the…

Echinococcus granulosus infection in mice: host responses during primary and secondary infection
Primary exposure to PSC immediately induces lympho proliferation, enhancement of transformational responses, production of IgE antibody and encapsulation of PSC by inflammatory cells, and lymphocyte activity begins to decline after 4 days and is profoundly suppressed by 10 days.

The findings do not support a role for phosphorylcholine-bearing antigens in immune defense against T. spiralis; however, the potency of the immune response induced suggests an immunomodulatory role for the lymphocytes involved.
