Sensitized peritoneal exudate cells from syngeneic donor Swiss albino mice infected with single and repeated doses of viable eggs ofHymenolepis nana produced a significant adoptive immunity in test mice when compared with animals which received non-sensitized (normal) cells. No significant difference was observed among the 2 recipient groups which received singly or repeatedly sensitized peritoneal exudate cells.
