A high oxfendazole dose to control porcine cysticercosis: pharmacokinetics and tissue residue profiles.
TLDR
Oxfendazole (OFZ) is efficacious for porcine cysticercosis at 30 mg/kg and is not registered to be used at this dose, while FBZSO2 and low FBZ concentrations were the main compound recovered in plasma. Expand
Occurrence of tapeworm Bertiella mucronata (Cestoda: Anoplocephalidae) in the Titi monkey Callicebus oenanthe from Peru: new definitive host and geographical record.
TLDR
The presence of the cestode Bertiella mucronata (Cestoda: Anoplocephalidae) is described from the small intestine of two Titi monkeys Callicebus oenanthe, from the Indañe community in Moyobamba, Peru, demonstrating that C. oenantiche is a new definitive host for this parasite. Expand
Effective, single-dose treatment or porcine cysticercosis with oxfendazole.
TLDR
Oxfendazole provides, for the first time, a practical, effective, inexpensive, and single-dose therapy for porcine cysticercosis. Expand
Morphological and molecular identification of Spirocerca lupi (Nematoda: Spiruridae) found in the Andean fox (Lycalopex culpaeus)
TLDR
This study is the first to report finding of spirocercosis in the Andean fox, and molecular analysis showed that S. lupi is a very diverse group, due to the genetic variability of the partial sequences of the cox1 gene of Spirocerca. Expand
Efficacy of a single oral dose of oxfendazole against Fasciola hepatica in naturally infected sheep.
TLDR
A single dose of oxfendazole is highly effective against F. hepatica, providing a new drug alternative for the control of fascioliasis or integrated zoonosis control. Expand
Finding of pentastomes of genus Reighardia (Pentastomida) in the Belcher's gull (Larus belcheri).
TLDR
This is the first report showing that the Belcher's gull is a new natural definitive host for this pentastome, and Reighardia sp. Expand
Molecular and morphological evidence of Taenia omissa in pumas (Puma concolor) in the Peruvian Highlands.
TLDR
A total of 41 cestodes were collected during necropsy examination on 2 pumas (Puma concolor) that were found in 2 communities in Canchis province, Cuzco region, Peru, at 4500 meters above sea level and were identified as Taenia omissa, the first report of this parasite in Peru. Expand
The taruca (Hippocamelus antisensis) and the red brocket deer (Mazama americana) as intermediate hosts of Taenia hydatigena in Peru, morphological and molecular evidence.
TLDR
This constitutes the first molecular detection of T. hydatigena metacestodes in the taruca and the red brocket deer and demonstrates that these animal species are natural intermediate hosts for this parasite. Expand
Evaluation of activity of triclabendazole against Taenia solium metacestode in naturally infected pigs.
TLDR
TCBZ is not an efficacious drug against Taenia solium cysticercosis in swine using a single dose of triclabendazole. Expand
Longevity and viability of Taenia solium eggs in the digestive system of the beetle Ammophorus rubripes.
TLDR
The present study evaluated the capacity of Ammophorus rubripes beetles to carry Taenia solium eggs, in terms of duration and viability of eggs in their digestive system, and found that dung beetles may potentially contribute towards dispersing T.solium eggs in endemic areas. Expand
