The Egyptian strain of Schistosoma haematobium (S. haematobium) was originally isolated circa 1950 from an unknown location in Egypt. The laboratory stock of the Egyptian strain of S. haematobium was later mixed with an isolate that was thought to be obtained from Abrawash (Cairo) by the Naval Medical Research Unit III, in 1977. The current Egyptian strain of S. haematobium maintained at BRI is from a mixture of the 1977 stock with another Egyptian isolate obtained in the 1980s.

NR-46430 consists of Swiss Webster or BALB/c mice obtained from Taconic or other reputable vendors that have been exposed to the Egyptian strain of S. haematobium. Health reports from Taconic/other vendors and Sentinel Health reports from the animal facility of BRI are available upon request.

Depending on the species requested, orders may be delayed. This delay on new orders is due to a required acclimation period from the date of receipt from the vendor and the exposure of the animals to cercariae. Please plan in advance when ordering mice. Authorization from an institution's animal care and use committee is usually required for these animals to be accepted into a facility.

Shipments of mice ordered through BEI Resources will be shipped by Biomedical Research Institute (BRI) in Rockville, MD. BRI maintains an AAALAC accredited facility, and can supply you or your veterinarian with information on our sentinel animal program and the latest health reports from Taconic. A copy of the most recent sentinel surveillance report from BRI and the commercial supplier's health reports for the infected animals is included in the shipment. If the address of your animal facility is different from that of your lab, please contact us at to set up the appropriate shipping destination.
