Epidemiology of hydatid disease in Sardinia: a study of fertility of cysts in sheep.
TLDR
Hydatidosis, caused by Echinococcus granulosus, is a cyclozoonotic disease of economic significance in Sardinia and the epidemiological significance of sheep in maintaining the life-cycle is ascertain. Expand
[Human cystic hydatidosis in Italy: a public health emergency? Past to present].
TLDR
On the whole analysed data suggest that although parasitic burden, strong in central-south Italy for decades, is now slow lowering due to structural changes and improvements in general conditions of life rather to specific preventive actions, human hydatidosis still represents a public health problem that will continue in the future. Expand
Long-term health effects of the occupational exposure to DDT. A preliminary report.
TLDR
Preliminary results are somewhat in agreement with experimental studies in rodents and previous epidemiologic findings, but expansion of the cohort to include all applications, and collection of information to improve exposure assessment is needed. Expand
Transfer of immunity against Hymenolepis nana in mice with lymphoid cells or serum from infected donors.
TLDR
It is suggested that effective immunity to H. nana involves both antibody and T cell-mediated inflammatory events and was most effectively transferred with MLNC and immune serum did not enhance this effect. Expand
Proportional mortality of dichloro-diphenyl-trichloroethane (DDT) workers: a preliminary report.
TLDR
A proportional mortality study of men who used mainly dichloro-diphenyl-trichloroethane (DDT) in an anti-malarial campaign in Sardinia, Italy, during the late 1940s finds that workers directly exposed to DDT had a significant increase in risk for liver and biliary tract cancers and multiple myeloma, but the PMR was also elevated among workers who did not have direct occupational contact with DDT.

Methodology in experimental infections of mice with Hymenolepis nana
TLDR
A “natural” infection technique based on the uptake of eggs with feed that may be attained even in the case of large numbers, and in mice infected with many eggs, following treatment with ionizing radiations, q is greater than in the controls. Expand
Development of human and mouse strain of Hymenolepis nana in mice.
TLDR
Discussion bears on the hypothesis that the difficulties that emerge during the first passages may be connected to the adult and not to the larval phase, and appears the same in the 3 parasite strains. Expand
Epidemiology of hydatid disease in the Mediterranean basin with special reference to Italy.
TLDR
This article critically reviews its diffusion in humans and sheep over the past twenty years and concludes that dog tapeworms of the genus Echinococcus represent the only possibility at present of evaluating the parasitic pressure. Expand
