This study was undertaken to elucidate the status of Metagonimus species infection and to demonstrate the first and the second intermediate hosts of the fluke at the several localities along the Gum river, Chungchung-nam Do, Korea from March 1979 to October 1980. The results are summarized as follows: 1. Total 790 stool specimens of inhabitants from 6 localities along Gum river were examined by the combination of cellophane thick smear technique and formalin-ether concentration technique. The…

The rats and dogs are infected with the metcercariae obtained from Zacco platypus and Opsariichthys bidens, adult worms collected were Miyata type of Metagonimus with some M. yokogawai and metacercarial infection rate in the fish was 81.0% (256 positives out of 318 fish).

The present survey was undertaken to observe the geographical distribution of metacercaria among the sweetfish, Plecoglossus altivelis, the most important second intermediate host of Metagonimus

An epidemiological study of metagonimiasis along the upper reaches of the Namhan River.

The upper reaches of the Namhan River are endemic foci of Metagonimus Miyata type and M. takahashii, and the egg size should be a good indicator for discrimination of the species or type.

Epidemiological study of clonorchiasis and metagonimiasis along the Geum-gang (River) in Okcheon-gun (county), Korea.

The endemic status of clonorchiasis and metagonimiasis along the Geum-gang (River) in Okcheon-gun (County) in Korea was examined and there was still a high prevalence of infection with C. sinensis and Metagonimus sp.

[Epidemiological Studies On Clonorchis Sinensis Infection Along The Nam-River In Gyeongnam Province, Korea]

An epidemiological study on Clonorchis sinensis infection along the Nam-river flowing in Gyeongsang-nam-do, southern part of Korea, was carried out, and it was revealed that more than half of total cases examined were light infection, and 73.2% of female examinees were lightly infected with this fluke.

[Survey On Encysted Cercaria Of Trematodes From Fresh-Water Fishes In Tongjin Riverside Areas In Korea]

The prevalence of distomiasis in the residents and infection rates of the metacercariae in fresh-water fishes were investigated at the upper, middle and lower reaches of the Tongjin river from January to April 1984.

Epidemiological studies of digenetic trematodes in Yongyang County, Kyungpook Province.

The present results suggest that Yongyang area still remains endemic with Clonorchis sinensis and Metagonimus sp.

The prevalence rates were different by geographical areas; 42.4% in down stream, 49.4%" in middle stream and 13.3% in upper stream, and social strata showed differences; 24.8% in primary schoolchildren, 78% in school teacher and local officers, 30.6% in general inhabitants.

Study on Metagonimus yokogawai(Katsurada, 1912) in Korea: IV. An epidemiological investigation along Tamjin River basin, South Cholla Do, Korea.

It was turned out that the Tamjin River basin is one of the endimic foci of metagonimiasis in Korea, and the relatively low infection rate of human host in spite of much higher infection of intermediate hosts were considered to be due to the less population of sweetfishes in theTamjin River than in the Sumjin River Basin.

Results indicate that all the sweetfish in the river Ahnseong harbour the metacercaria of Metagonimus yokogawai, which is known to spread metagonimiasis in that area.

In both kinds of infections male showed higher infection rates than female and the tendencies of higher infection rate in the older age group were observed.

The development of the metacercaria of M. yokogawai in the mouse host was experimentally traced every day for 10 days after infection, and the growth rate of the genital primordia was distinctly high, particularly in the testes.

[Epidemiological conditions of Metagonimus yokogawai infection in Hadong Gun, Gyeongsang Nam Do]

The overall prevalence rate was higher in male than in female and the difference was greater in middle age groups, and the most significant mode of infection by the inhabitants was the raw eating of sweetfish which commonly harbour metacercariae of M. yokogawai during summer through autumn.

It was found that the highest number of encysted larvae was found in the flesh of sweetfish, whereas it was encountered on the scales of sea-run dace, and there was no relationship between the size of fish and the intensity of infection.

The distribution and the infestation rates of metacercariae in fishes from the Kum-Ho river were observed from June 1965 to August l967 and Exorchis oviformis was chiefly infested in scales and fins, while the infested rates in the four kinds of fishes seemed not to be influenced by season.
