Abstract The immunoperoxidase staining characteristics of Dirofilaria immitis and pulmonary tissues from infected dogs were studied by using the following sera: anti-fresh D immitis, anti-processed D immitis, anti-dog IgG, anti-dog IgG Fc, anti-dog IgM and antidog C3. Marked staining was observed using antifresh D immitis serum. Body cavity fluid and cuticle were strongly stained and hypodermis, muscle, lateral cord, testis, vas deferens, ovary, oviduct and uterus were moderately stained. Oesophagus and intestine were mildly stained. Degenerate worms were stained by all antisera. The intact and cut surfaces of microfilariae and eggs and sperm present in filariae were stained, but not their internal contents. Circulating and stored immotile microfilariae did not stain. Excreted eggs, presumed to be unfertilised and, or, degenerate, stained positively. Immunoperoxidase staining of routinely processed histological samples provides a means of assessing D immitis antigen.
