Individual worms from rats infected with different strains of Hymenolepis diminuta were incubated in vitro and the products lactate, succinate, acetate and ammonia assayed. Variability in excretion was not confined to differences between strains. Two metabolic types were identified. Where succinate was above 20 mumol g-1 h-1, lactate excretion was low… (More)
