Pig as a Favorable Animal for Taenia Saginata Asiatica Infection
The pig as an intermediate host for Taiwan Taenia infection
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that young pigs are good intermediate hosts for Taiwan Taenia and that the SEM pig is a satisfactory host for experimental studies with this tapeworm.
