Experimental infections of Galba truncatula with Fasciola hepatica, Fascioloides magna, or Paramphistomum daubneyi were carried out at 20°C to determine if the use of 14-cm petri dishes for breeding lettuce-fed snails enhanced the characteristics of snail infections. Compared to infected snails raised in boxes up to day 30 post-exposure and later in(More)
An update on the redial generations of Fasciola hepatica was carried out to highlight the different developmental patterns of rediae, the effects of some factors on these generations, and the consequences of such developmental patterns on cercarial productivity. The development of generations is dependent on the behaviour of the first mother redia of the(More)
Bimiracidial infections of Galba truncatula with Fasciola hepatica were carried out to determine the effect of food quality on the frequency of 1- and 2-sporocyst infections, to analyse its impact on the developmental patterns (normal, or abnormal) of redial generations, and to verify its consequences on cercarial production. These investigations were(More)
Experimental infections of Galba truncatula with Fasciola hepatica were carried out under laboratory conditions to determine why the use of Tetraphyll, when provided every 3 days as food for snails, stimulated the intensity of cercarial shedding. In snails raised on cos lettuce and Tetraphyll, the number of metacercariae was significantly higher than that(More)
CONTEXT Hidradenocarcinoma is a rare carcinoma of high malignant potential. It most metastasizes to regional lymph nodes and distant viscera. CASE REPORT We report a case of 52-year-old woman who presented with an invasive hidradenocarcinoma of the finger, treated with surgical excision. The patient presented with skin and lymph node metastases four years(More)
Two experiments using seven populations of Galba truncatula were carried out to analyse the effect of food quality (cos lettuce only, or cos lettuce+Tetraphyll) on the characteristics of infections: (1) in a single population of G. truncatula infected by one of three digenea (first experiment), and (2) in seven populations of G. truncatula differing in(More)
Individual bimiracidial infections of French Galba truncatula with an allopatric (Moroccan) isolate of Fasciola hepatica were carried out under laboratory conditions to count free rediae and intraredial daughter rediae in snails just after their death, and to determine whether feeding the snails on lettuce only or lettuce plus Tetraphyll had an effect on(More)
Parent snails, F1, and F2, originating from a Moroccan population of Galba truncatula, were experimentally subjected to sympatric miracidia of Fasciola hepatica at 20°C to determine the mode of adaptation of this parasite to the local intermediate host via the study of redial burdens and by following cercarial shedding. In spite of an increase in the global(More)
Pilocytic astrocytoma (PA) is a neoplasia which is considered as a grade I astrocytoma by the World Health Organization (WHO). Its most common location is the cerebellum and it develops during the first two decades of life. Prognosis is mostly excellent if gross-total resection can be achieved, with 10-year survival rates of up to 95%. In rare cases,(More)
The objective of this work is to develop an aquatic ecosystem and apply it on Moroccan lagoon systems. This model will keep us abreast of the yearly development of the main parameters that characterize these ecosystems while integrating all the data that have so far been acquired. Within this framework, a simulation model of the thermal system and a model(More)
