Nutritional status, body composition, and intestinal parasitism among the Mbyá‐Guaraní communities of Misiones, Argentina
TLDR
Severe growth stunting and parasitic infection are still quite common among Mbyá children affecting about half of them along with significant changes in body composition and proportions. Expand
Socio-environmental conditions, intestinal parasitic infections and nutritional status in children from a suburban neighborhood of La Plata, Argentina.
TLDR
The study evidences that living conditions are variable within this population, especially among the poorest children, and could be linked to the differences in the extent to which parents are able to use their scant resources to influence their children's morbidity. Expand
Larvae and adults of Hysterothylacium aduncum (Rudolphi, 1802) (Nematoda: Anisakidae) in fishes and crustaceans in the south west Atlantic.
TLDR
Parasitic prevalence, mean intensity and range were calculated in relation to different geographic zones, from the Argentinean-Uruguayan Common Fishing Zone to Patagonic areas and an increase of parasitism from the northern areas southwards was observed. Expand
Endoparasite community of Rattus norvegicus captured in a shantytown of Buenos Aires City, Argentina
TLDR
The presence of zoonotic endoparasites confirms R. norvegicus as a reservoir for different types of pathologies, which, therefore, represents a risk to the public health in an overcrowded urban area. Expand
Helminths of the kelp gull, Larus dominicanus, from the northern Patagonian coast
TLDR
The helminth community of L. dominicanus on the Peninsula Valdés coast seems to be richer than those reported by previous authors in other localities in Argentina, possibly due to a greater diversity in prey items available. Expand
Contracaecum bioccai n. sp. from the brown pelican Pelecanus occidentalis (L.) in Colombia (Nematoda: Anisakidae): morphology, molecular evidence and its genetic relationship with congeners from
Contracaecum bioccai n. sp. is described from the brown pelican Pelecanus occidentalis (L.) in northern Colombia (Totumo Marsh) based on 20 enzyme loci studied using multilocus allozymeExpand
A NEW SPECIES OF TRICHURIS (NEMATODA: TRICHURIDAE) FROM PHYLLOTINI RODENTS IN ARGENTINA
TLDR
The present and the future findings of shared parasite fauna from both populations of P. xanthopygus in these disjunct areas will support the hypothesis of a continuous distribution of this host species at a past time. Expand
FURTHER STUDY OF CONTRACAECUM PELAGICUM (NEMATODA: ANISAKIDAE) IN SPHENISCUS MAGELLANICUS (AVES: SPHENISCIDAE) FROM ARGENTINEAN COASTS
TLDR
The first detailed description of C. pelagicum adults from S. magellanicus is presented and fourth-stage larvae that parasitized both hosts were assigned to a nondeterminated Contracaecum species. Expand
A NEW SPECIES OF SYPHACIA (NEMATODA: OXYURIDAE) FROM AKODON AZARAE (RODENTIA: CRICETIDAE) IN ARGENTINA
Eight species of Syphacia (Nematoda: Oxyuridae) have been reported from South America in rodents of the Sigmodontinae, only 1 of which has been recorded in Argentina. Syphacia (Syphacia) carlitosi n.Expand
A NEW SPECIES OF MATHEVOTAENIA (CESTODA: ANOPLOCEPHALIDAE) AND OTHER TAPEWORMS FROM MARSUPIALS IN ARGENTINA
TLDR
Linstowiines appear to be the dominant cestodes in New World marsupial species, with M. bivittata representing the most prevalent and widely distributed species and the hymenolepidid is the first record of this family in Neotropical marsupials. Expand
