Epidemiological studies on animal and human trichinellosis in Estonia.
From 1992 to 1999, muscle samples from 814 sylvatic animals and 1,173 domestic and synanthropic animals were collected in 15 districts of Estonia; the prevalence of trichinellosis ranged from 1.0% toExpand
Eimeria and Cryptosporidium in Estonian dairy farms in regard to age, species, and diarrhoea.
Eimeria and Cryptosporidium are among the most common bovine parasites in the world, but little is known about them in Estonia. Basic field research is needed to gain insight into pathogen dynamics,Expand
Distribution of sylvatic species of Trichinella in Estonia according to climate zones.
A survey on trichinellosis among sylvatic and domestic animals from Estonia revealed the presence of Trichinella nativa (Tn), Trichinella britovi (Tb), and Trichinella spiralis (Ts). Muscle samplesExpand
Distribution of Toxocara infection in the environment and in definitive and paratenic hosts in Estonia.
The aim of the study was to elucidate the distribution and possible transmission routes of Toxocara spp. infection in Estonia. Out of 454 faecal and sand samples collected from park lawns andExpand
Concurrent infection with sibling Trichinella species in a natural host.
Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis of individual Trichinella muscle larvae, collected from several sylvatic and domestic animals in Estonia, revealed concurrent infection of a racoonExpand
