Table 3 Influence of incubation period 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

Incubation time Mean migration ratio (± standard deviation (SD)) Mean skin lag (± standard deviation (SD))
1 h 0.0% * (± 0.0%) 85.9% ** (± 3.7%)
4 h 18.3% (± 6.0%) 88.0% ** (± 3.5%)
8 h 72.8% (± 9.3%) 68.4% ** (± 3.5%)
12 h 90.0% (± 3.8%) 12.2% (± 8.9%)
16 h 92.0% (± 2.7%) 9.8% (± 9.0%)
24 h 90.0% (± 4.9%) 10.0% (± 3.8%)
  1. * Statistically significant difference from migration ratio after ≥ 12 h, p < 0.05 (Dunn's test). ** Statistically significant difference from skin lag after ≥ 12 h, p < 0.001 (Holm-Sidak test).
