[Survival of the larvae of the ship botfly Oestrus ovis L. depending on the function of the immune system of the host's body].Parazitologiia. 1989 Mar-Apr; 23(2):129-33.P
In the experiments on artificial infection the survival of larvae of Oestrus ovis L. in sheep with depressed, normal and stimulated immune system was studied. The maximum number of larvae survived in immune depressed animals (62.9%), the minimum number survived in immune stimulated animals (0.4%). For the estimation of specific immune response the reaction of indirect hemagglutination (IHA), the reaction of diffused precipitation (RDP) and the immune ferment analysis (ELISA) were used.
