At this point, due to a variety of factors (adverse macro- and micro-environmental conditions, immune response of the host, parasite genetic constitution, among others), a phenomenon called "hypobiosis" occurs, in which L4 diminishes its metabolism, halts its development and remains inside the gastric gland.
