A double etiopathogenic mechanism is possible, with the primitive blood-graft of oncosphere
or hexcanth and a graft in the pelvic pouch of Douglas of protoscolices coming from the cracking of abdominal hydatid cysts.
5,8,10) The eggs are round to oval in shape, measure an average of 25-40 [micro]m in diameter, and contain an oncosphere
with 6 hooklets.
Oncologix Collaborates with Dendritic Nanotechnologies to Redesign its Oncosphere
multilocularis are sensitive to environmental factors: elevated temperature and desiccation can effectively reduce oncosphere
infectivity (Veit et al.
14) Some cysticercus antigens can react with anti-sera against T solium adult and oncosphere
, indicating that they also have common antigens.
The eggs release the oncosphere
(immature larvae) in the animal's intestine.
Following ingestion by a human or ungulate intermediate host (sheep, goats, pigs, cattle, horses, and camels), an oncosphere
larva is released from the egg.
BULLETIN BOARD: BESC) wholly owned subsidiary Oncologix Corporation announced today an early completion of the first of three performance milestones, the Development Phase, for its Oncosphere
Kennedy, MD, will provide advisement on the development and testing of the company's Oncosphere
embryos emerge from the eggs, penetrate the intestinal wall, and are disseminated by the bloodstream to various tissues where the larval stage, or cysticercus, develops.
BULLETIN BOARD: BESC) announced today that Oncologix Corporation, its wholly owned subsidiary, has entered into an agreement with the Institut fur Umwelttechnologien GmbH (IUT) of Berlin Germany whereunder IUT will provide development and testing services in connection with the accomplishment of the Development Feasibility Phase of the Oncosphere
Additionally, the Oncosphere
will allow the physician to verify the placement post treatment, which is not currently possible with microsphere products.
