Abstract

Measurements have been made of the fatty-acid composition of lipids in normal hamster sera compared with sera of hamsters infected with Schistosoma mansoni. The results show a consistent decrease of linoleic and eicosapentaenoic acids, and an increase in arachidonic acid in the phosphatidylcholine and lysophosphatidylcholine of the infected animals. Arachidonic acid was also increased in cholesterol ester, and docosahexaenoic acid was raised in free fatty acid and in phosphatidylcholine in sera from infected animals.
