Abstract

Summary

The Formosan strain of was passed through the Japanese snail intermediate host () for four consecutive generations. Progressively rising rates of snail infection and mortality were recorded. The resultant laboratory strain of Formosan schistosome was used to infect Taiwanese monkeys. Monkeys infected with the natural Formosan strain and natural Japanese strain served as controls. Worm recovery rates were similar in the three groups. Granulomatous responses in the liver produced by the laboratory strain were compared with the large atypical granulomas of the natural Formosan strain and the conventional granulomas of the natural Japanese strain. The new Formosan strain appeared altered toward characteristics possessed by the Japanese strain.
