Disease relevance of Mesocestoides


High impact information on Mesocestoides

  • Mice infected with the parasite Mesocestoides corti produce a vigorous antibody response that is restricted to the IgM and IgG1 heavy chain classes [6].
  • Localization, specific activity, and molecular forms of acetylcholinesterase in developmental stages of the cestode Mesocestoides corti [7].
  • The cestode parasite Mesocestoides corti is known to release at the larval stage several molecules including the heat shock proteins hsp70 and hsp60 [8].
  • We investigated the suppressive effects of rolipram, RP 73401 (piclamilast), and other structurally diverse inhibitors of adenosine 3'5'-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP)-specific phosphodiesterase (PDE4) on anti-CD3-stimulated interleukin (IL)-4 and IL-5 generation by splenocytes from BALB/c mice infected with Mesocestoides (M) corti [9].
  • We investigated the impact of co-administration of liposomized beta-glucan on the larvicidal effect of the anthelmintic praziquantel (PZQ) in the livers and peritoneal cavities in mice infected with Mesocestoides vogae (M. corti) [10].
