An oral infection model with Taenia solium whole proglottids was used to study host-parasite relationships and the mechanisms underlying resistance to infection in pigs. In addition, an attempt was made to link the parasitological findings to serological data. Groups of six piglets aged 1, 3 and 5 months were infected and slaughtered 3 months p.i. Circulating antibody and antigen levels were monitored weekly. At autopsy total cyst counts were performed. Although the detailed carcass dissection… CONTINUE READING
