the cellular response of the fowl small intestine to primary and secondary infections of the cestode raillietina cesticillus (molin).infections of raillietina cesticillus in the small intestine of the fowl caused a mononuclear leucocyte infiltration, which occurred in the tissues around the worm scolices and was especially prevalent in challenge infections. there was no evidence of vascular congestion or of a neutrophilic response, and the cellular reaction seemed to consist of a local proliferation of lymphoid tissue. mast cell and pyroninophylic cell numbers increased in the intestinal mucosa of birds with longstanding prim ...1976988531
