Abstract -Yong W. K. and Dobson C. 1982. The passive transfer of proctective immunity against Angiostrongylus cantonensis with immune lymph node cells from different lymphoid tissues in rats. International Journal for Parasitology 12: 423-425. Lymph node cells from the posterior cervical and mesenteric lymph nodes of immune rats passively protected syngeneic recipient rats against Angiostrongylus cantonensis better than cells from the spleen, thymic and inguinal lymph nodes either as reduced worms burdens and/or stunted growth. No antibody was detected in the sera of recipient rats after transfer of the cells and before infection which suggested that the protection was cell- rather than antibody-mediated.
