A coprologic study was conducted to determine the prevalence of helminth infections at the Samsun Zoo, Turkey. There are 184 animals comprising 45 species or subspecies, including 23 ruminants, three equines, 21 carnivores, 10 rabbits, two primates, two kangaroos, and 123 birds in the zoo. Fecal samples of zoo animals were collected and examined four times(More)
A total of 286 larval forms of Hysterothylacium aduncum were collected from Merlangius merlangus euxinus and Trachurus trachurus captured at different sites of the Black Sea coast of Turkey. Prevalence of H. aduncum in M. merlangus euxinus and T. trachurus was 37.4 and 29.3 %, respectively. The fourth-stage larvae from M. merlangus euxinus and T. trachurus(More)
Anisakid nematodes are important etiological agents for zoonotic human anisakiasis (or anisakidosis). These parasites in the Turkish waters still remain unexplored. This study aims the molecular identification of Anisakis species in Turkey's coast from Black, Aegean and Mediterranean Sea and specifically to screen for zoonotic species in commonly(More)
Fifteen roe deer were examined at necropsy from Northern Turkey in the period 2006-2010 for the helminth infections. Totally 6470 helminth specimens were collected and identified by morphological criteria. Twenty-five helminth species were identified (1 of the Class Trematoda, 1 of Cestoda and 23 of Nematoda). Dicrocoelium dendriticum (Prevalence 20%) was(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to estimate the prevalence of Fasciola hepatica infection in sheep in the Black Sea region of Turkey. METHODS Samples from 213 sheep were collected randomly in Samsun, Tokat, and Sinop from September 2005 to January 2007 and tested by indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and Western blot(More)
BACKGROUND A dead male Hamadryas baboon, Papio hamadryas, from a zoo in Samsun in northern Turkey was submitted for necropsy examination. METHODS Standard techniques were performed for necropsy and for parasitic identification. RESULTS A total of 14 nematodes were recovered from the small intestine. All nematodes were identified as Aonchotheca annulosa.(More)
Although the presence of HC in ruminants is determined after slaughter or necropsy, there is no available test practically used for the HC diagnosis on live animals. In humans, the diagnosis of the disease is achieved by means of clinical signs together with imaging techniques and serological assays. However, cross-reactions due to the diversity of(More)
