Genetic variants within the genus Echinococcus identified by mitochondrial DNA sequencing.
TLDR
The sequence of a region of the rapidly evolving mitochondrial genome is useful as a marker of species and strain identity and as a preliminary indication of evolutionary divergence within the genus Echinococcus. Expand
Towards a taxonomic revision of the genus Echinococcus.
TLDR
The outcome of recent molecular epidemiological studies has served to reinforce proposals made ten years ago to revise the taxonomy of Echinococcus, and to recognize the contribution of early taxonomists. Expand
NADH dehydrogenase 1 gene sequences compared for species and strains of the genus Echinococcus.
TLDR
Nucleotide sequences of a 471 bp region of the mitochondrial NADH dehydrogenase 1 gene were obtained for 59 Echinococcus isolates including representatives of each of the 4 recognised species and should prove useful in phylogenetic studies. Expand
Prevention and control of cystic echinococcosis.
TLDR
Since the introduction of current (and past) hydatid control campaigns, there have been clear technological improvements made in the diagnosis and treatment of human and animal cystic echinococcosis, the diagnosis of canine echinocentrosis, and the genetic characterisation of strains and vaccination against Echinococcus granulosus in animals. Expand
Tetraspanins on the surface of Schistosoma mansoni are protective antigens against schistosomiasis
TLDR
TSP-2 in particular provided protection in excess of the 40% benchmark set by the World Health Organization for progression of schistosome vaccine antigens into clinical trials, and seems to be an effective vaccine antigen against S. mansoni. Expand
The Schistosoma japonicum genome reveals features of host–parasite interplay
TLDR
The genome provides a global insight into the molecular architecture and host interaction of this complex metazoan pathogen, revealing that it can exploit host nutrients, neuroendocrine hormones and signalling pathways for growth, development and maturation. Expand
Rapid discrimination of Echinococcus species and strains using a polymerase chain reaction-based RFLP method.
TLDR
This method offers an objective, simple, highly sensitive and rapid approach for the discrimination of Echinococcus isolates and for study of other parasite complexes. Expand
Concepts in Immunology and Diagnosis of Hydatid Disease
TLDR
This review discusses new concepts and approaches in the immunology and diagnosis of echinococcosis, but comparative reference has also been made to AE infection and to earlier pivotal studies of both diseases. Expand
Immunopathogenesis of human schistosomiasis
TLDR
This review considers the basic features of the pathology and clinical outcomes of hepatointestinal and genitourinary schistosomiasis, presents an overview of the numerous studies on animal models that have clarified many of the Immunopathological features, and provides insight into the current understanding of the immunopathogenesis and genetic control of human schistsomiasis. Expand
Schistosomiasis in the People's Republic of China: Prospects and Challenges for the 21st Century
TLDR
An overview of the biology, epidemiology, clinical features, and prospects for control of oriental schistosomiasis in the People's Republic of China is provided. Expand
