parasites vs host diet

I am looking for information concerning parasite/host relationships-
particularly alterations of parasite compositions via alterations in host
blood composition through dietary changes.

We have just completed a study where we altered the salivary gland fatty
acid composition of ticks by feeding them on guinea pigs whose blood fatty
acid compositions had been changed through dietary alterations.  Has anyone
done any similar work using another parasite?
