  • J. Chai, S. Lee
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Parasitology international
  • 1 June 2002
TLDR
A total of 19 species of food-borne intestinal trematodes have been reported in humans in the Republic of Korea, but the major source of human infection is the grass snake Rhabdophis tigrina, a paratenic host. Expand
Foodborne intestinal flukes in Southeast Asia.
TLDR
The host-parasite relationships have been studied in Metagonimus yokogawai, Echinostoma hortense, Fasciolopsis buski, Neodiplostomum seoulense, and Gymnophalloides seoi; however, the pathogenicity of each parasite species and host mucosal defense mechanisms are yet poorly understood. Expand
Trends in parasitic diseases in the Republic of Korea.
TLDR
In the Republic of Korea, cases of zoonotic, opportunistic and imported parasitoses are being detected increasingly and food-borne trematode infections, such as clonorchiasis and intestinal trematodiases, each show steady prevalence. Expand
A survey of cryptosporidiosis among 2,541 residents of 25 coastal islands in Jeollanam-Do (Province), Republic of Korea.
TLDR
It is indicated that human Cryptosporidium infections are maintained at a relatively low prevalence on coastal islands of Jeollanam-do, Republic of Korea. Expand
High prevalence of liver and intestinal fluke infections among residents of Savannakhet Province in Laos.
TLDR
The results indicate that foodborne liver and intestinal fluke infections are prevalent among residents of Savannakhet Province, Laos. Expand

  • 1 December 1981
TLDR
Clonorchiasis and metagonimiasis should be realized as important public health problems in Korea by their wide distribution, high prevalence rate and heavy infection intensity and comprehensive measures against them are needed urgently. Expand
A successful experience of soil-transmitted helminth control in the Republic of Korea.
TLDR
The authors' experience indicates that social driving force to establish an eligible national control system to conduct repeated mass chemotherapy, together with improvement of environment and sanitation, is important for initiating and achieving STH control in a developing community. Expand
Effect of Control Strategies on Prevalence, Incidence and Re-infection of Clonorchiasis in Endemic Areas of China
TLDR
Repeated mass treatment or selective treatment with praziquantel every 6 to 12 months is highly effective for clonorchiasis control in heavily endemic areas and one or two selective treatments with health education is effective in moderately endemic areas. Expand
Studies On Parasitic Helminths Of Korea 5.Survey On Intestinal Trematodes Of House Rats.
TLDR
In this study, no rats were found to be infected with Heterophyes and Pygidiopsis even in endemic areas, and the negligible importance of rats as reservoir host of these heterophyid should be reevaluated in the future. Expand
Study On Metagonimus Yokogawai(Katsurada, 1912) In Korea Vii. Susceptibility Of Various Strains Of Mice To Metagonimus Infection And Effect Of Prednisolone.

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Kisaengch'unghak chapchi. The Korean journal of…
  • 1 December 1984
TLDR
The susceptibility to M. yokogawai infection is different by strains of mice but it can be elevated by prednisolone injection probably due to suppression of immune responses in ICR mice. Expand
