Abstract

A total of 13 SpanishTrichinella isolates were characterised by DNA analysis. Genomic DNA crosshybridisation tests revealed two distinct groups that exhibited weak cross-reactions. Further diagnostic subdivision was attempted according to restriction-fragment polymorphism using a clonedT. spiralis DNA repetitive fragment as a probe, but no major difference between the twoTrichinella groups was observed.
