Growth ofEchinococcus multilocularis in gerbils exposed to different environmnntal temperature

  • M. Novak
Short Communications Cellular Biology


Gerbils kept at high (35°C) temperature harbored a significantly largerEchinococcus multilocularis cyst biomass than those kept at room (21°C) and low (5°C) temperature. Parasite induced adrenomegaly was observed in all temperature groups.
