Fifteen female ICR mice, 6-8 weeks old, were each exposed to 25 metacercarial cysts of Echinostoma caproni. To determine the effects of withholding food on survival, size and distribution of E. caproni in ICR mice, two groups of five each were maintained without food for 1 day (group A) or 2 days (group B) prior to necropsy. Group C consisted of five mice maintained with food for the duration of the experiment. All mice were necropsied at 12 days postinfection. There was no significant difference in worm survival, body area or distribution between group A and C or group B and C mice. The results of this experiment show that short-duration removal of food has no effect on worm survival, size or distribution of E. caproni adults in the small intestine of the ICR mouse.
