Real time PCR to detect the environmental faecal contamination by Echinococcus multilocularis from red fox stools.
The oncosphere stage of Echinococcus multilocularis in red fox stools can lead, after ingestion, to the development of alveolar echinococcosis in the intermediate hosts, commonly small mammals andExpand
