Observations on the infectivity and fecundity of Schistosoma curassoni from Senegal in albino mice

, : Observations on the infectivity and fecundity of Schistosoma curassoni from Senegal in albino mice. Journal of Helminthology 62(2): 103-109

An average of 11% of adult Schistosoma curassoni were recovered from 200 albino mice which had been infected subcutaneously with 150-250 cercariae. Worms were primarily found in the portal veins. The average number of intrauterine eggs per female during the first 100 days p.i. was 13 and the average number of eggs produced per female worm was 103 per day for the first 60 days post oviposition. The majority of eggs were recovered from the liver (98.3%). The oograms were determined until day 95 p.i. For screening of antischistosomal drugs it is recommended not to use infections older than 60 d.p.i.
