Table 2 Influence of temperature on migration ratio and skin lag (n = 6)

From: Larval migration in PERL chambers as an in vitro model for percutaneous infection stimulates feeding in the canine hookworm Ancylostoma caninum

Temperature Mean migration ratio (± standard deviation (SD)) Mean skin lag (± standard deviation (SD))
7°C 0.0% * (± .0%) 30.0% (± 18.1%)
22°C 62.9% * (± 9.9%) 39.7% ** (± 13.4%)
32°C 90.2% (± 4.4%) 11.8% (± 10.8%)
37°C 89.7% (± 5.3%) 12.0% (± 9.2%)
  1. * Statistically significant difference to migration ratio at 37°C, p < 0.05 (Dunn's test). ** Statistically significant difference to skin lag at 37°C, p < 0.001 (Holm-Sidak test).
