On the virulence of the geographic strains of Schistosoma japonicum

, : On the virulence of the geographic strains of Schistosoma japonicum. American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 9: 195-198

The virulence of the 4 geographic strains of S. japonicum was found to be different in mice infected with 100 cercariae. Judging from the host's survival times after inoculation and after the appearance of eggs in the feces, the Japanese and Philippine strains of this schistosome species were shown to be more virulent than the Chinese and Formosan strains.

Changes in the isozyme patterns of glycogen phosphorylase in the rat liver and skeletal muscles were studied during ontogenesis. The presence of a minor component in the muscles and the liver during embryogenesis was shown by immunochemical titrat...
