 en Anti-Embryonation Immunity in Murine Schistosomiasis Japonica (Philippines)
GF Mitchell; EG Garcia; KM Davern & WU Tiu

Abstract

The hypothesis that granuloma modulation and disease abatement in chronic
infection with  Schistosoma  japonicum
  check for this species in other resources
 could be ascribed to antibody-mediated
effects on egg maturation and egg viability, arose from  studies 
performed with mice in the Philippines.  This novel hypothesis has not 
yet been integrated into the schistosomiasis literature despite being 
formulated more than a decade ago.  One reason for this is that the 
phenomenon might be confined to S. japonicum, even S. japonicum 
(Philippines).

Keywords
schistosomiasis japonica - granuloma modulation - COP test - egg antigens - egg embryonation - egg viability
