Toxicity in nematodes correlates with damage to the intestine, consistent with the mechanism of crystal toxin action in insects, and structure–function analyses indicate that one novel nematicidal crystal protein can be engineered to a small 43-kDa active core.

The research literature on mermithids continues to show that mersmithids do indeed exert long-term effects on terrestrial host populations and mass rearing in developing countries is a viable and attractive mechanism for control of vector mosquitoes.
MOLECULAR SYSTEMATICS OF MESOCESTOIDES SPP. (CESTODA: MESOCESTOIDIDAE) FROM DOMESTIC DOGS (CANIS FAMILIARIS) AND COYOTES (CANIS LATRANS)

DNA sequences obtained from metacestodes collected from dogs, as well as proglottids from dogs and coyotes, and tetrathyridia representing laboratory isolates of M. corti recovered a monophyletic group composed of all samples of Mesocestoides spp.

An 8-year-old spayed Schnauzer with a distended abdomen was examined because of straining to urinate and suspected urinary tract infection, and tissues consistent with metacestodes were definitively identified as Mesocestoides spp.
Discovery of a highly synergistic anthelmintic combination that shows mutual hypersusceptibility

This study provides a powerful means by which anthelmintic combination therapies can be examined and demonstrates that the combination of nAChR agonists and Cry proteins has excellent properties and is predicted to give improved cure rates while being recalcitrant to the development of parasite resistance.

Diverse Host-Seeking Behaviors of Skin-Penetrating Nematodes
An in-depth analysis of host seeking in the skin-penetrating human parasite Strongyloides stercoralis revealed that parasite olfactory preferences reflect host specificity rather than phylogeny, suggesting an important role for olfaction in host selection.
