Experimental infections with the Tasmanian isolate of Trichinella pseudospiralis using a non-enzymatic recovery technique

Laboratory rats and mice, cats, brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula), and 2 species of raptor (marsh harrier, Circus aeruginosus, and brown falcon, Falco berigora) were either infected orally with larvae of Trichinella pseudospiralis isolated by a non-enzymatic technique or by feeding infected muscle tissue. Muscle from a naturally infected Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus harrisii) and an eastern […]
