Abstract Share this page

The reaction of amoebocytes in the hemolymph of the infected intermediate host, Biomphalaria glabrata, to Schistosoma mansoni antigens has been investigated using the indirect immunofluorescence antibody test. Monolayers of amoebocytes, prepared from hemolymph of infected and normal snails, were first fixed and then reacted with antisera obtained from mice infected for 7 to 9 weeks. Nonspecific and cross-reactions between the antisera and monolayers of amoebocytes were eliminated by absorbing the antisera with tissues from uninfected snails. The liberation of detectable schistosomal antigens in the hemolymph in soluble and particulate forms coincided with completion of the infection cycle 3 to 4 weeks after exposure to miracidia. The schistosomal antigens were demonstrable in the cytoplasm of amoebocytes and in the center of amoebocyte aggregates.
