An agar plate (AP) method has been developed for culturing infectious larvae of the hookworm Ancylostoma ceylanicum. The third-stage larvae reared using the AP method displayed similar morphology to those cultured using Baermann or Harada-Mori coproculture techniques. The yield of viable larvae from the AP method (50%) was comparable to that of the Baermann (47%), and both were superior to Harada-Mori (2.1%). Third-stage larvae cultured by the AP method established patent infection in naturally… CONTINUE READING
