Abstract

ZANOTTI, Eliana Maria; MAGALHAES, Luiz Augusto  and  PIEDRABUENA, Aquiles Eugenico. Localization of Schistosoma mansoni in the portal system of Mus musculus infected experimentally by a single sex of the trematode. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1982, vol.16, n.4, pp. 220-232. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101982000400003.

S. mansoni migration in mice infected by unisexual or bisexual modes was studied. The research shows the influence of the adult worms. It seems that in the bisexual infections the schistosome migration to the mesenteric vessels takes place with a view to copulation and oviposition.

Keywords : Schistosoma mansoni [migration]; Schistosomiasis; Mus musculus.
