Intermediate host specificity in Schistosoma mansoni

, : Intermediate host specificity in Schistosoma mansoni. Experimental Parasitology 39(1): 150-169

The subject is comprehensively reviewed. A detailed table summarizes from the literature the results of experimental exposures of Biomphalaria to miracidia of allopatric Schistosoma mansoni. Factors controlling infection: (i) specificity of miracidial attraction, (ii) fate of miracidia in "insusceptible" snails, and (iii) genetic factors are discussed followed by immunity in Biomphalaria (multiple miracidial penetrations; experimental implantation; recognition of foreigness). A final section deals with the recognition of the sporocyst in the host (early surface changes in the miracidial-sporocyst transition; the parasite surface and host cells; common host and parasite antigenic groupings). There are over 100 references.
