Resumo


The aim of this research was to study the impact of in vitro gamma radiation on Anisakis sp. larvae collected from Genypterusbrasiliensis assessing the use of this technological process in the prevention of human anisakiasis. The parasites wereirradiated with doses of 1, 3 and 6 kGy in a 0.65% NaCl solution and kept chilled between 5oC and 8°C. The most effective doseused was 6 kGy, in which these parasite survived for a maximum period of 14 days.
