Irradiation of S. mansoni cercariae causes parasite death well before maturity, yet the attenuated larvae stimulate potent protective immunity in experimental hosts. In contrast, resistance following a normal infection depends upon development of a mature, egg-laying worm burden. This study aimed to investigate how irradiation alters the biochemistry of schistosome larvae to enhance their immunogenicity so effectively.
