INTRODUCTION This paper is a part of the helminthological studies carried out on school-going children of the Kashmir Valley and deals with the status of intestinal helminths in the children of Gurez Valley and to assess epidemiological factors associated with the extent of endemic disease so that control measures are adopted. MATERIAL AND METHODS Stool(More)
BACKGROUND Active screening by mobile teams is considered the most effective method for detecting gambiense-type human African trypanosomiasis (HAT) but constrained funding in many post-conflict countries limits this approach. Non-specialist health care workers (HCWs) in peripheral health facilities could be trained to identify potential cases for testing(More)

On the examination of soil around the roots of Mustard in Kashmir Valley, two species of Nematodes were met, namely Aphelenchus radicicolus Steiner,1931 and Psilenchus haki Handoo, 1977. The species were identified under Stereoscopic microscope with the little intraspecific variations from the original in terms of the dimensions. The effect of organic(More)
Seasonal population dynamics of the monogenean, Diplozoon kashmirensis Kaw, on the gills of two cyprinid fish species, Schizothorax niger Heckel and Carassius carassius (Linnaeus), was investigated in three limnologically distinct trophic habitats located along the flood plain of River Jhelum in Kashmir from June 2006 to May 2008. The parasite(More)
In order to assess the species richness and diversity profile of helminth parasite fauna in an endemic fish, an investigation was carried out in two urban and two rural lakes of Kashmir. Overall nine species of helminth parasites were observed in four lakes. Of these three were autogenic and six were allogenic. Heteroxenous parasite species were more in(More)
Many innovative researches on the development and introduction of recombinant vaccines against many economically important parasites were carried out in the 20th century. Research continues to hold promise with the development of immunological and molecular approaches for control of these parasites and in this regard it has already been seen that(More)
Cyprinus carpio communis Linnaeus, Carassius carassius Linnaeus, Schizothorax curvifrons Heckel and Triplophysa marmorata species of fishes were captured from Anchar Lake and river Jhelum of Kashmir Himalaya for hematological and parasitological analysis. During the investigation haemoflagellates from the genus Babesiosoma and Trypanosoma were recorded in(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Cryptosporidiosis has not been reported as an endemic disease in Kashmir, but high prevalence of Cryptosporidium sp. has been found among asymptomatic (non-diarrheic) HIV positive immigrants in present study. Due to increasing number of HIV positive immigrants in Kashmir, Cryptosporidium may become a public health problem in(More)
The diploid complements of mitotic metaphase plates of Bothriocephalus acheilognathi (Yamaguti), a specific parasite of Schizothorax spp. were studied using conventional Giesma staining and karyometric analysis. Bothriocephalus acheilognathi showed a karyotype with 2n = 14 chromosomes which are all biarmed metacentric, meta-submetacentric and(More)
The ulrastructural morphology of the cestode Bothriocephalus acheilognathi (Yamaguti, 1934) has been studied by SEM (scanning electron microscopy) and TEM (transmission electron microscopy). This parasite was isolated from the Schizothorax species from fresh water bodies of Kashmir. Adult Bothriocephalus acheilognathi ranged from 3.5 to 13.5 cm long and(More)
