    CEC/STD meeting on schistosomiasis research. Noordwijk Leiden NLD, 1993/09/06.

    Two specific characteristics of schistosome infection are of primordial importance to the development of a vaccine : schistosomes do not multiply within the tissues of their definitive hosts (unlike protozoan parasites) and a partial non-sterilizing immunity can have a marked effect on the incidence of pathology and on disease transmission.

    Since viable eggs are the cause of disease pathology, a reduction in worm fecundity whether or not accompanied by a reduction in prasite burden is a sufficient goal for vaccine induced immunity.
