In vivo and in vitro development of Schistosoma Margrebowiei

  • Martin G. Ogbe (a1)

The development of Schistosoma margrebowiei in hamsters, mice and gerbils has been studied following infection by cercariae obtained from laboratory-infected Bulinus natalensis. The rate is compared with that of other schistosome spp. and found to be very fast. In vitro development was slower and did not proceed beyond the closed-gut stage.
