Abstract

Abstract

Mice immunized by percutaneous exposure to ultraviolet-irradiated cercariae developed levels of resistance to subsequent infection comparable to those induced by gamma-irradiated cercariae (50–70% reduction in adult worm burden). Cercariae treated with ultraviolet doses ranging from one to three times the minimum dose required to prevent long-term survival induced the highest levels of resistance.
