Fasciola hepatica and Paramphistomum daubneyi: changes in prevalences of natural infections in cattle and in Lymnaea truncatula from central France over the past 12 years.
Three hypotheses may explain the increase of paramphistomosis in cattle and snails: a better quality of diagnosis for the detection of P. daubneyi eggs in veterinary analysis laboratories, the use of specific molecules in the treatment of cattle fasciolosis since 1993, and the lack of an effective treatment up to now against cattle paramphumomosis.

Preliminary studies on the prevalences of natural fasciolosis in cattle, sheep, and the host snail (Galba truncatula) in north-eastern Algeria
Three series of investigations on natural infections with Fasciola hepatica were carried out in north-eastern Algeria, finding significantly higher prevalences of fasciolosis in the cattle and sheep from Jijel compared with those from the department of Constantine, and the infection rates for overwintering snails were also higher.

Pseudosuccinea columella (Say 1817) (Gastropoda, Lymnaeidae), snail host of Fasciola hepatica: first record for France in the wild
Experimental infections showed that 100% of snails developed infection when exposed to F. hepatica miracidia, and consequences for the epidemiology of F. Hepatica transmission in France are discussed. Expand
Human paragonimiasis in Africa.
Training of technicians in anti-tuberculosis centers would be the most realistic attitude to detect mycobacteria and/or Paragonimus eggs during the same sputum examination. Expand
Allopatric combination of Fasciola hepatica and Lymnaea truncatula is more efficient than sympatric ones.
The susceptibility data showed a higher efficiency of flukes in the allopatric snail population than in their local snail population, and introduction of liver fluke-infected cattle should be monitored carefully, as it could result in the introduction of more efficient parasites. Expand
Myocastor coypus as a reservoir host of Fasciola hepatica in France.
Because of its eco-ethologic characteristics, the nutria could be a potential wild reservoir of F. hepatica in France and its role in the epidemiology of domestic fasciolosis in Loire-Atlantique is clarified. Expand
Fasciola gigantica and F hepatica: a comparative study of some characteristics of Fasciola infection in Lymnaea truncatula infected by either of the two trematodes.
The frequency of cercaria-shedding snails was closely correlated with the particular L truncatula population and trematode species, and a similar finding in two populations was also noted for the frequencies found in the infected snails who died without emission. Expand
The detection and quantification of a digenean infection in the snail host with special emphasis on Fasciola sp.
In this review, ten methods used to study digenean infections in their intermediate hosts were compared to determine which one should be used either in the field or in the lab to establish theExpand
The definitive and intermediate hosts of Fasciola hepatica in the natural watercress beds in central France
In the Limousin region, the presence of hares and rabbits in watercress beds ensured the continuation of the F. hepatica life cycle and permitted the subsequent infection of humans when this wild watercressed was eaten. Expand
Infection of Lymnaea truncatula and Lymnaea glabra by Fasciola hepatica and Paramphistomum daubneyi in farms of central France.
L. glabra was a much better intermediate host for F. hepatica and P. daubneyi when it was the only available snail, possibly indicating an adaptation of parasites to their less usual host in local conditions. Expand
