Nematode parasite infections of domestic pigs in a sub-tropical and high-rainfall area of India.
In vitro anthelmintic activity of root-tuber extract of Flemingia vestita, an indigenous plant in Shillong, India
In vitro treatment of root-tuber-peel extract of Flemingia vestita against helminth parasites showed structural alteration in their tegumental architecture and the vermifugal activity of this plant extract was suggested.
Helminth parasitism of domestic fowl (Gallus domesticus L.) in a subtropical high-rainfall area of India.
An investigation into the helminth parasitic infections of domestic fowl in a subtropical area of India, based on an autopsy of 532 chickens, revealed a 90.9% prevalence of infection and Capillaria contorta was recorded for the first time from fowls in India.
Utilizing ribosomal DNA gene marker regions to characterize the metacercariae (Trematoda: Digenea) parasitizing piscine intermediate hosts in Manipur, Northeast India
Molecular techniques utilizing PCR amplification of rDNA regions of larger subunit, smaller subunit and inter transcribed spacers and the rDNA ITS2 secondary structure provided additional confirmation of the robustness of the molecular marker as a tool for taxon-specific characterization.
Correlating early evolution of parasitic platyhelminths to Gondwana breakup.
The presence of polystome parasites in specific anuran host clades and in discrete geographic areas reveals the importance of biogeographic vicariance in diversification processes and supports the occurrence and radiation of amphibians over ancient and recent geological periods.

The species of liver flukes of the genus Fasciola (Platyhelminthes: Digenea: Fasciolidae) are obligate parasitic trematodes residing in the large biliary ducts of herbivorous mammals. While Fasciola…
Effect of root-tuber extract of Flemingia vestita, a leguminous plant, on Artyfechinostomum sufrartyfex and Fasciolopsis buski: a scanning electron microscopy study
The tegumental surface of Artyfechinostomum sufrartyfex as viewed under the scanning electron microscope revealed the presence of double rows of spines in the collar and sloughing off of most of the spines or their deformation as well as wrinkles and rupture of the general teguments.
The mitochondrial genome of Paragonimus westermani (Kerbert, 1878), the Indian isolate of the lung fluke representative of the family Paragonimidae (Trematoda)
The lung fluke is the major etiological agent of paragonimiasis and the first Indian representative for the family Paragonimidae to be fully sequenced that provides important genetic markers for ecological, population and biogeographical studies and molecular diagnostic of digeneans that cause trematodiases.
