Modifications anatomiques, physiologiques et comportementales de l’hôte induites par les parasites au cours de leur développement : cas de la trichinose

Abstract : The parasitic lifestyle is a complex system involving the parasite's dependence on its host(s). This relationship of unilateral benefit requires great adaptability. In order to improve their chances of survival, many parasitic species have been able to implement body and behavioural changes in their hosts with the aim of increasing their own chances of survival. The changes induced can give the initiating species greater resistance, increase or decrease the probability of predation, protect them and conceal them from the host organism… Trichinella spp., Toxoplasma gondii, Dicrocœlium dendriticum, Trypanosoma brucei spp. and Leucochloridium spp. all have a particularity that gives them an advantage in terms of survival. Species of the genus Trichinella are capable of surviving for several years within a single host, and most of them therefore divert the metabolism of some muscle cells and modify their structure in order to create the nurse cell, capable of supplying the parasite with nutrients while isolating it from the immune system that could threaten it.
