A primalary study of the biological control of Fascioliasis.


The present study demonstrated that the infection of Lymnaea auricularia with an oligochaete worm gave a good protection against the penetration of Fasciola gigantica miracidia to the snails. Experimentally, it was found that the oligochaete ingested cercariae, which shed from other snails and believed that it could play a significant role in the control of fascioliasis.
