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.

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.
