Resistance to Fasciola hepatica was shown by a 64 per cent reduction in fluke recovery compared with control rats was recorded in rats inoculated with serum from sheep experimentally infected with F hepatica. A comparable reduction (55.6 per cent) was obtained using transfer factor prepared from lysed leucocytes of infected rats. No significant reduction was obtained using transfer factor prepared from sheep or calves.
