Abstract

The antigenic characteristics of isolates of Trichinella from Alaska, Canada and Kenya (arctic, north temperate and tropical, respectively) were compared using two dimensional crossed immunoelectrophoresis. It was found that there were some differences in the antigenic components of the three isolates but little difference in the number of antigens. The usefulness of serology in taxonomy is discussed in relation to these three isolates.
