Heartworm disease in animals and humans.
Canine, feline and ferret heartworm disease are updated with regard to the clinical presentation, diagnosis, prevention, therapy and management of the disease, with special emphasis on the recently described Heartworm Associated Respiratory Disease (HARD) Syndrome in cats. Expand
In vitro killing of microfilariae of Brugia pahangi and Brugia malayi by eosinophil granule proteins.
All of the eosinophil granule proteins are toxic to mf and they support the hypothesis that eos inophil degranulation causes death of mf in vivo. Expand
Safety of selamectin in dogs.
Selamectin is safe for topical use on dogs at the recommended minimum dosage of 6mgkg(-1) (6-12mgkg (-1) monthly starting at 6 weeks of age, and including dogs of reproducing age, avermectin-sensitive Collies, and heartworm-positive dogs. Expand

IVM clearly provides potent "safety-net" activity against older larvae, immatures, and young adults in cases of owner compliance failure, and offers much promise as a unique "soft-kill" treatment for young, and possibly older adult heartworms, with reduced risks. Expand
Effects of tetracycline on the filarial worms Brugia pahangi and Dirofilaria immitis and their bacterial endosymbionts Wolbachia.
It is shown that tetracycline treatment is very effective in blocking embryo development in two filarial nematodes, B. pahangi and Dirofilaria immitis. Expand
Heartworm and Wolbachia: therapeutic implications.
Preliminary observations suggest that administration of DOXY+IVM for several months prior to (or without) MEL will eliminate adult HW with less potential for severe thromboembolism than MEL alone. Expand
World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (W.A.A.V.P.) guidelines for evaluating the efficacy of anthelmintics for dogs and cats.
These guidelines should assist both investigators and registration authorities involved in the evaluation of anthelmintics to employ comparable and standard procedures and will have the added benefit of minimising the numbers of animals needed for such tests. Expand
Survey of canine heartworm in the city of Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil.
Six hundred and eleven random-source dogs from six sections of the city of Recife, Pernambuco, were examined antemortem for circulating microfilariae Dirofilaria immitis and Dipetalonema reconditum adult heartworm antigen, and examined postmortem for adult heartworms. Expand
Mongolian jirds (Meriones unguiculatus) infected with Brugia pahangi by the intraperitoneal route: a rich source of developing larvae, adult filariae, and microfilariae.
Orientation of male Heterodera rostochiensis Woll and the attraction of male cystnematodes by their females to their females. Expand
