ABSTRACT

 

The objective of this study was to observe the role of blood cells in stimulation of protective immune response in . H diminuta infected mice, vaccinated with ES antigen of eggs, cysticercoid larvae and mature adult H. diminuta worms. The total and differential blood cells like total leucocyte count, lymphocytes, neutrophils, basophils, eosinophils and monocytes counts were observed for protective immunity measurment. The TLC, lymphocytes, monocytes and basophils were found to be increased and eosinophil counts were found to be decreased, while neutrophil counts were observed fluctuated in all experimental mice.
