Based on the distinctiveness of their mitochondrial haplotypes and other biological features, several recent publications have proposed that some Echinococcus granulosus strains should be regarded as separate species. However, the genetic cohesion of these species has not been extensively evaluated using nuclear markers. We assess the degree of polymorphism(More)
Echinococcus granulosus sensu stricto (G1) and Echinococcus ortleppi (G5) are haplotypes of the parasite formerly known as Echinococcus granulosus sensu lato, which in its larval stage causes cystic hydatid disease, endemic in Southern Brazil. Epidemiological and molecular knowledge about the haplotypes occurring in a region is essential to control the(More)
