A survey of cryptosporidiosis among 2,541 residents of 25 coastal islands in Jeollanam-Do (Province), Republic of Korea.
It is indicated that human Cryptosporidium infections are maintained at a relatively low prevalence on coastal islands of Jeollanam-do, Republic of Korea. Expand
Genotype analysis of Cryptosporidium spp. prevalent in a rural village in Hwasun-gun, Republic of Korea.
It is suggested that human cryptosporidiosis in the studied area is caused by mixtures of C. hominis and C. parvum oocysts originating from both inhabitants and domestic animals. Expand

The results have shown that the MSP-3alpha locus of re-emerging Korean P. vivax is dimorphic with two allelic types coexisting in the endemic area. Expand
A surgically confirmed case of breast sparganosis showing characteristic mammography and ultrasonography findings.
M Mammography and ultrasonography characteristically revealed the presence of several well-defined, isodense and hypoechoic tubular masses, in the upper quadrant of the left breast, each mass consisting of a continuous cord- or worm-like structure. Expand
Clonorchis sinensis metacercarial infection in the pond smelt Hypomesus olidus and the minnow Zacco platypus collected from the Soyang and Daechung Lakes.
The pond smelt Hypomesus olidus and minnow Zacco platypus and pond smelts and minnows collected from the Soyang and Daechung Lakes were verified to be the second intermediate hosts and the sources of human C. sinensis infection. Expand
Prevalence of Heterophyes nocens and Pygydiopsis summa infections among residents of the western and southern coastal islands of the Republic of Korea.
The results indicate that H. nocens and P. summa are indigenous to the southern and western coastal islands of the Republic of Korea, and that adults more than 40 years old are most prevalent on Imchado. Expand
Intestinal helminth infections in feral cats and a raccoon dog on Aphaedo Island, Shinan-gun, with a special note on Gymnophalloides seoi infection in cats.
Results indicate that feral cats and raccoon dogs on Aphaedo are natural definitive hosts for intestinal trematodes and cestodes, including G. seoi, H. nocens, and S. erinacei. Expand
Apical membrane antigen-1 (AMA-1) gene sequences of re-emerging Plasmodium vivax in South Korea.
Genetic variation in the region encompassing the apical membrane antigen-1 (PvAMA-1) of the parasites by DNA sequencing of the 22 re-emerging P. vivax isolates showed that two genotypes of AMA-1 genes coexist in the re-Emerging Korean P. Vivax. Expand
A new endemic focus of Heterophyes nocens and other heterophyid infections in a coastal area of Gangjin-gun, Jeollanam-do.
The surveyed coastal village has been newly known as an endemic focus of human H. nocens infection and consuming raw mullets was the presumable source of human heterophyid infections. Expand
Intestinal Nematodes from Small Mammals Captured near the Demilitarized Zone, Gyeonggi Province, Republic of Korea
This is the first report of nematode infections in small mammals captured near the demilitarized zone (DMZ) of Paju, Pocheon, and Yeoncheon, Gyeonggi Province. Expand
