Eating raw or insufficiently cooked mollusks is a known risk factor for human echinostomiasis. We confirmed identification of Artyfechinostomum sufrartyfex trematodes as the causative agent of disease among 170 children in northern Bihar, India. We also identified the snail Pila globosa as a potential source of infections in the study area. 
Temporal morphometric analyses of Pila globosa in India for its use in aquaculture and food industry
Background Although the apple snail Pila globosa is used as indicator species for human consumption locally and as fish feed, research on it in general is very scanty. It is used in food industry, inExpand


Paryphostomum Sufrartyfex(Intestinal Fluke) Infection in Man
An ill-nourished and anaemic Hindu boy, aged 15, was admitted into the General Hospital, Madras, on 18th May, 1950, with a history of diarrhoea and an irregular temperature for two months and clinical examination revealed no abnormalities. Expand

The main features of human echinostomiasis are reviewed in relation to their biology, epidemiology, host-parasite relationships, pathogenicity, clinical aspects, diagnosis, treatment and control. Expand
A molecular phylogeny of the human schistosomes.
Both mitochondrial and nuclear DNA data strongly support "traditional" hypotheses that members of the Schistosoma haematobium group form a monophyletic clade, and the African schistosomes form a clade to the exclusion of the two Asian species. Expand
Geographical genetic structure within the human lung fluke, Paragonimus westermani, detected from DNA sequences.
Two groups were recognized within P. westermani: an NE group which was relatively uniform and included both diploid and triploid forms, and a southern group (Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines), members of which were genetically distant from one another. Expand
Development of primers for the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I gene in digenetic trematodes (Platyhelminthes) illustrates the challenge of barcoding parasitic helminths
The phylum Platyhelminthes is a diverse group of flatworms that includes parasites with serious impacts on human health, animal husbandry, aquaculture and wildlife management. Here we presentExpand
Phylogenetic analysis of the suborder plagiorchiata (Platyhelminthes, Digenea) based on partial lsrDNA sequences.
The results show that the Plagiorchiata, as considered by most authors, is not monophyletic, and that the superfamilies Opecoeloidea, and most probably Dicrocoelioidea and Gorgoderoidesa, may have to be removed from this suborder. Expand
