- The HamsterModel for Identification of Specific Antigens of Taenia solium Tapeworms. Ochoa-Sánchez, Alicia; Jiménez, Lucía; Landa, Abraham // Journal of Biomedicine & Biotechnology;2011, p1
Humans acquire taeniasis by ingesting pork meat infected with Taenia solium cysticerci, which are the only definitive hosts of the adult stage (tapeworm) and responsible for transmitting the human and porcine cysticercosis. Hence, detection of human tapeworm carriers is a key element in the...
