Abstract:Strong dermal response to infestation was measured through cellular infiltration of the skin by eosinophils, mast cells and lymphocytes. Infested and re-infested calves exhibited a marked IDST response. No systemic cell mediated response was detected. Infested animals mounted a humoral response to a soluble L. vituli antigen, but antibody presence was apparently not protective, meaning resistance to infestation is cell-mediated and at the local level.
