 en Compatibility of Biomphalaria tenagophila check for this species in other resources with Schistosoma mansoni check for this species in other resources : a study of homologous plasma transference
João R Coelho & Fernando SM Bezerra

Abstract

This study aims to investigate the importance of the serum factors present in the plasma of resistant Biomphalaria tenagophila check for this species in other resources snails, when transferred to susceptible conspecific. Susceptible B. tenagophila (CF) received plasma from resistant B. tenagophila (Taim), and both were later infected with Schistosoma mansoni check for this species in other resources . We noticed that the plasma transfer showed an increase on the resistance of susceptible snails of about 86% when compared to the non-immunized group (p < 0.001).
