Surface ultrastructure of the developmental stages of Heterophyopsis continua (Trematoda: Heterophyidae).
TLDR
The structure and distribution of papillae suggest that the ventral sucker likely functions as a holdfast organ and the oral sucker as a probing organ involved in feeding. Expand
Turnover of biliary epithelial cells in Clonorchis sinensis infected rats.
TLDR
It is suggested that mucosal epithelial cells of the bile ducts infected with C. sinensis become hyperplastic mainly by direct and local stimulation of the worms. Expand
[Second report on intestinal parasites among the patients of Seoul Paik Hospital (1984-1992)].
TLDR
Viewing from the data of 9 years, it was evident that the prevalence of soil-transmitted helminths such as A. lumbricoides and T. trichiura has been decreasing remarkably, while that of snail-transmission helminth such as C. sinensis and intestinal protozoans has not. Expand
Metagonimus miyatai sp. nov. (Digenea: Heterophyidae), a new intestinal trematode transmitted by freshwater fishes in Japan and Korea.
TLDR
The new species was morphologically compared with M. yokogawai and M. takahashii obtained from experimental animals fed with the sweetfish and the crucian carp, Carassius carassius, respectively and found to have a similar uterine tubule distribution to that of another closely related species.

Acanthoparyphium Tyosenense: The Discovery of Human Infection and Identification of its Source
TLDR
The results show that A. tyosenense infects humans and that brackish water mollusks are the source of human infection. Expand
Invasion of Metagonimus yokogawai into the submucosal layer of the small intestine of immunosuppressed mice.
TLDR
It is shown that immunosuppression of ICR mice can induce, for a short period of time, severe mucosal damage, and allow deep invasion of M. yokogawai into the submucosa of the small intestine. Expand
Usefulness of IgG4 subclass antibodies for diagnosis of human clonorchiasis.
TLDR
It is suggested that serum IgG4 antibody reaction to 8 kDa band is specific but not sensitive, and any method to increase its sensitivity is required for improved serodiagnosis. Expand
Three morphological types of the genus Metagonimus encysted in the dace, Tribolodon taczanowskii, caught from the Sumjin River.
TLDR
Three morphological types of the genus Metagonimus were found encysted in the dace, Tribolodon taczanowskii, caught from the Sumjin River, Korea, and the validity of Miyata type as a specific level should be retained until more convincing evidences are obtained. Expand
Larval Gnathostoma nipponicum found in the imported Chinese loaches.
TLDR
Six early third-stage larvae of Gnathostoma nipponicum were recovered from the muscle of 376 loaches, Misgurnus anguillicaudatus, imported from China, and it is revealed that the Chinese loach is a natural second intermediate host of G. niponicum. Expand
[Infection status of the sea eel (Astroconger myriaster) purchased from the Noryangjin fish market with anisakid larvae].
TLDR
The present results revealed that the sea eels caught in the Korean waters are heavily infected with anisakid larvae, not only in their viscera but also in the muscle, and Anisakis type I was the most common among the 7 larval types. Expand
