Nematode larvae in fossilized animal coprolites from lower and middle Pleistocene sites, central Italy.
Coprolites collected in 4 paleontological sites dated from 1.5 million years to 30,000 years ago were identified as of Hyaenidae (Mammalia, Carnivora) and Nematode larvae found did not permit identification of the larvae found. Expand
Ecological analysis of acari recovered from coprolites from archaeological site of northeast Brazil.
The present work discusses the possibility of the preservation of the mite groups found up to the present day and their relationship with the environment and their importance to present populations. Expand
Aetiology of acute diarrhoea in hospitalized children in Rio de Janeiro City, Brazil.
Enteropathogens were investigated in 406 children aged 0-3 years with diarrhoea attending the Salles Neto Municipal Hospital, and vomiting and fever were significantly associated with Rotavirus isolation, respiratory infection with Adenovirus, and bloody diarrhoeas with Campylobacter. Expand
Random amplified polymorphic DNA analysis of DNA extracted from Trichuris trichiura (Linnaeus, 1771) eggs and its prospective application to paleoparasitological studies.
Random amplified polymorphic DNA analysis was applied to DNAs extracted from Trichuris trichiura eggs recovered from human fecal samples. Four out of 6 primers tested displayed 18 distinct and wellExpand
Sanitary quality of the rivers in the Communities of Manguinhos´ Territory, Rio de Janeiro, RJ
Sanitation actions are rare in the communities of Manguinhos, so evaluation of the sanitary conditions of the river waters and the peridomestic soils of the communities allows the diagnosis of theExpand
Toxocara canis (Werner, 1782) eggs in the pleistocene site of Menez-Dregan, France (300,000-500,000 years before present).
Paleoparasitological analysis of cave deposits led to the detection of well-preserved helminth eggs, which morphology and morphometry pointed to the diagnosis of Toxocara canis eggs, a parasite of carnivore mammals. Expand
Trichuris sp. from 1,040 +/- 50-year-old Cervidae coprolites from the archaeological site Furna do Estrago, Pernambuco, Brazil.
The paleoparasitological analysis of Cervidae coprolites that were recovered from the archaeological site Furna do Estrago, Pernambuco, Brazil shows the first record of Trichuris sp. Expand
Echinostomes in Felid Coprolites from Brazil
The finding of Echinostomatidae eggs in felid coprolites in the Furna do Estrago Archaeological Site in Pernambuco State in the Brazilian semiarid expands the distribution of this Digenea in remote times and raises the hypothesis of other cases of echinOSTomiasis in pre-Colombian populations.

Parasites in stool samples in the environment of Ilha da Marambaia, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: an approach in public health.
A high level of evolutive forms of parasites with public health risk was found in stool samples of the environment studied, and it is proposed that health education programs must be employed to reduce the environmental contamination. Expand
Association between the turbidity parameter and ELISA for monitoring of Giardia lamblia , Cryptosporidium sp. e Entamoeba histolytica in samples of fresh water Associação entre o parâmetro de
The results indicate an association of the measurement of turbidity with the use of laboratory techniques in the study of parasites in water. Expand
