MAGALHAES, Luiz Augusto et al. The influence of hyperglicemic diet and aloxanic diabetes on the vitality of Schistosoma mansoni in experimentally infected mice. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1978, vol.12, n.3, pp. 267-276. ISSN 0034-8910.

Some effects of a sugar-rich diet and of the aloxanic diabetes in albino mice (Mus musculus) infected with Schistosoma mansoni were considered. The results showed: 1. the number of granulomata for the aloxane treated animals was significantly lower than the number for untreated animals. 2. one may, then, surmise that the aloxane treatment generates conditions that inhibits the development and oviposition of S. mansoni.

Keywords : Schistosoma mansoni; Alloxan diabetes; Schistosomiasis.
