Selection for Resistance to Schistosoma mansoni Infections in Biomphalaria glabrata

A. G. Arijo, M. J. Doenhoff and N. M. Soomro    

Abstract: Commencing with parental stock of Biomphalaria glabrata snails, the majority of which were initially susceptible to infection with Schistosoma mansoni, selectively bred a line of Biomphalaria glabrata snails that displays substantially reduced susceptibility to infection with this parasite. Approximately only 2% of young adult snails of the 7th generation of selected line became infected after exposure to large numbers of miracidia, compared with infection rates of 90 % or more in control batches of un-selected parental snails.
