Genetic polymorphism of merozoite surface protein-1 and merozoite surface protein-2 in Plasmodium falciparum field isolates from Myanmar
TLDR
Diverse allelic polymorphism of MSP-1 and Msp-2 was identified in P. falciparum field isolates from Myanmar and most of the infections were determined to be mixed infections, as was a high degree of multiplicity of infection. Expand
Epizootiologic survey for Babesia microti among small wild mammals in northeastern Eurasia and a geographic diversity in the beta-tubulin gene sequences.
TLDR
Findings suggest that U.S-type B. microti is widely distributed among small wild mammals in temperate zones of not only North America, but also Eurasia, whereas that Hobetsu- and Kobe-type parasites may be uniquely distributed in Japan. Expand
First Case of Human Babesiosis in Korea: Detection and Characterization of a Novel Type of Babesia sp. (KO1) Similar to Ovine Babesia
TLDR
The present study provides the first evidence of the presence of a hitherto unidentified, new type of Babesia parasite capable of infecting humans. Expand
PCR detection and molecular characterization of Pentatrichomonas hominis from feces of dogs with diarrhea in the Republic of Korea.
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis established that P. hominis belonged to the 1st clade, which is comprised of Bos taurus and Felines, and established that the infection and its molecular characterization from the feces of puppies with diarrhea were confirmed. Expand
High frequency of genetic diversity of Plasmodium vivax field isolates in Myanmar.
TLDR
The results collectively suggest that the P. vivax population in Myanmar is highly diverse and multiple clonal infections are prevalent in the country. Expand
Developmental Transcriptomic Features of the Carcinogenic Liver Fluke, Clonorchis sinensis
TLDR
The transcriptomic information on essential regulators of development, bile chemotaxis, and physico-metabolic pathways in C. sinensis that presented in this study will guide further studies to identify novel drug targets and diagnostic antigens. Expand
Detection of vivax malaria sporozoites naturally infected in Anopheline mosquitoes from endemic areas of northern parts of Gyeonggi-do (Province) in Korea.
TLDR
Anopheles sinensis plays an important role in re-emerging malaria transmission in Korea and is concluded that Anopheline mosquitoes were infected with sporozoites and showed positive reaction in ELISA test. Expand
Prevalence of Toxoplasma gondii Infection in Feral Cats in Seoul, Korea
TLDR
It is critical that the city institute policies for the control of the feral cat population to reduce the risk of toxoplasmosis transmission to animals, including humans. Expand
Induction of IL-10-Producing CD1dhighCD5+ Regulatory B Cells following Babesia microti-Infection
TLDR
This study is the first demonstration of the expansion of Bregs following infection by an intraerythrocytic protozoan parasite and begins to elucidate the mechanism by which helminth infection regulates autoimmunity and allergic inflammation. Expand
Prevalence of Toxoplasma gondii infection in stray and household cats in regions of Seoul, Korea.
TLDR
It is recognized that the infection rate of toxoplasmosis in stray cats in Seoul was considerably high but household cats were free from infection. Expand
