studies on susceptibility of ornithodoros moubata as vector of dipetalonema viteae (filariodea). 19883256567
immune responses of the argasid tick ornithodoros moubata moubata induced by infection with the filarial worm acanthocheilonema viteae.investigations were undertaken to determine whether the tick ornithodoros moubata moubata mounted a detectable immune response to primary and secondary infections with acanthocheilonema viteae. uninfected control tick survival rate was 70%, but only 45% in the primary infection group. post-secondary infection survival rate (82%) was comparable to controls, indicating that these selected ticks had some protective advantage. mean a. viteae infective larvae recovery from ticks with secondary infect ...200010953223
acanthocheilonema viteae: rational design of the life cycle to increase production of parasite material using less experimental animals.the maintenance of the life cycle of acanthocheilonema viteae is described with the aim to increase the production of parasite material using less experimental animals. the filaria was maintained in jirds (meriones unguiculatus) and in soft ticks (ornithodoros moubata). the optimal infection dosis for jirds was 80 infective larvae (l3). the mean worm number in groups of animals varied between 18 and 30 adult worms. a stable microfilaremia developed and only few animals developed pathological alt ...19957780447
