Reduction of muscle larvae burden in rats experimentally infected with Trichinella spiralis
Institute of Parasitology of the Polish Academy of Sciences, 00-818 Warsaw, 51/55 Twarda st, Poland.
In Wistar rats infected with 500 to 2,500 Trichinella spiralis larvae the muscle larvae intensity (larvae per gram-l.p.g.) was measured from 20 to 180 day post infection (d.p.i). The l.p.g. increased to day 40-50 p.i. and decreased thereafter. The highest reduction took place between 6 0 and 120 d.p.i. with intermediate inoculum of T. spiralis larvae. The mechanism of the reduction of T. spiralis larvae in muscles is suggested to depend on pericapsular-intercapsular host cells infiltrations attracted by parasite antigens.
Key words: trichinellosis / larvae / muscles / reduction / rats
