Abstract:

Studies were designed to investigate the distribution of oncomelanid snails in Taiwan, the susceptibility of oncomelanid snails from various areas to infection with human and zoophilic strains of Schistosoma japonicum, the nature of definitive host for Ilan strain of S. japonicum, and adaptation of S. japonicum in Oncomelania hupensis chiui. In addition, gel-diffusion studies on sera from animals infected with S. japonicum were also made.
