Trichinella spiralis infections of inbred mice: genetics of the host response following infection with different Trichinella isolates.

Abstract

The immune response of inbred strains of mice was studied following infection with isolates of Trichinella from a pig (P1), an arctic fox (AF1), and T. spiralis var. pseudospiralis (TP). Strains of mice previously characterized as highly resistant to a separate pig isolate of T. spiralis responded to the P1 and AF1 isolates by expelling over 80% of the… (More)
