BRAGA, Fabio Ribeiro et al. Effect of the fungus Paecilomyces lilacinus on Taenia saginata eggs. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2008, vol.41, n.6, pp. 686-688. ISSN 0037-8682. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86822008000600026.
With the aim of demonstrating the effectiveness of the fungus Paecilomyces lilacinus on Taenia saginata eggs under laboratory conditions, a trial was set up in Petri dishes with water-agar 2%. There was ovicidal activity (p < 0.05) in relation to the control group on the tenth day of interaction and an internal colonization rate of 25.5% in the eggs.
