[The kinetics of specific serum antibodies in sheep infested with sheep bot larvae].Parazitologiia. 1991 Jul-Aug; 25(4):297-304.P
The kinetics of specific antibodies of the blood serum of sheep experimentally infested with 80, 160 and 1000 specimens of Oestrus ovis larvae was examined. The affinity pure serum IgG and the immunoferment analysis (ELISA) were used for qualitative estimation of specific antibodies. It has been shown that the level of specific antibodies correlates with the larval biomass and is connected with ontogenesis of this parasite. The younger animals, which were infested for the first time, are characterized by more intensive production of specific IgG than adult reinfested ones. The ways of immunity response formation in animals infested with Oestrus ovis larvae are considered.
