Cystic Echinococcosis (CE) is a zoonotic infection caused by larval (metacestode) stages of cestodes belonging to the genus Echinococcus and the family Taeniidae. The aim of current study was to determine the availability and organ placement of hydatid cysts in some ruminants of Pakistan and to study of rostellar hooks morphology of protoscoleces of E. granulosus. A total of 2803 animals comprising 925 sheep, 939 goats and 939 cattle (n=) from both sexes were examined to find out the prevalence…

TLDR
It is concluded that CE is prevalent in the livestock population of Malakand and E. granulosus s.

Cystic echinococcosis: an emerging zoonosis in southern regions of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan

TLDR
Cystic echinococcosis was found to be highly prevalent in southern regions of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and could be a potential threat to human health.

MORPHOLOGICAL CHARACTERIZATION OF ECHINOCOCCUS GRANULOSUS ISOLATED FROM HUMAN AND SHEEP IN EUPHRATES REGION OF IRAQ

TLDR
The study aimed to determine the morphological characters of hydatid cysts and protoscoleses and differences between strains by studying the numbers of number, shape, Size and color of germinal layer of hyd atid cyst also number of rostellar hooks, arrangement.

Epidemiological, Morphometric, and Molecular Investigation of Cystic Echinococcosis in Camel and Cattle From Upper Egypt: Current Status and Zoonotic Implications

TLDR
Camels and cattle play a potential role in maintaining the transmission cycle of this zoonotic parasite, and a significant association between the age and sex of the slaughtered cattle and the occurrence of hydatid cysts is found.

Spread of Cystic Echinococcosis in Pakistan Due to Stray Dogs and Livestock Slaughtering Habits: Research Priorities and Public Health Importance

TLDR
The findings showed that lung and liver were most affected organs and majority (59%) of the cysts were fertile in infected animals, and the presence of a large number of stray dogs were an important factor in the spread of CE.

Echinococcoses in Iran, Turkey, and Pakistan: Old Diseases in the New Millennium

TLDR
The present study aimed to provide a broad review of the status of cystic and alveolar echinococcosis, summarizing the current knowledge about geographical distribution, molecular epidemiology, and transmission dynamics of Echinococcus granulosus sensu lato and Echinitis multilocularis in this region.

324-334 Ahmed H.pmd

TLDR
The occurrence of cases in children and young adults was an important finding as it indicated an active transmission of the parasite in Pakistan along with the poverty index and showed that emerging health issues in Pakistan could bring the disease to limelight for future research.

Why more research needs to be done on echinococcosis in Pakistan

TLDR
Future research on echinococcosis is anticipated to demonstrate whether the epidemiology, diagnosis and recombinant vaccines/antibodies relating to echinOCoccosis can meet the quality standards defined by the World Health Organization.

Genotypic and Phenotypic Characterization of Echinococcus Granulosus

Occurrence and fertility rates of hydatid cysts in sheep and goats slaughtered at Modjo Luna Export Slaughter House, Ethiopia.

TLDR
In Ethiopia, to break the life cycle of echinococcosis/hydatidosis, public education on habit of feeding condemned organs to dogs should be undertaken and the prevalence was high in sheep compared to goats although the difference was not statistically significant.

Some Epidemiological Aspects of Hydatidosis of Lungs and Livers of Sheep and Goats in Quetta, Pakistan

TLDR
Overall incidence of hydatid disease in livers of sheep and goats was 46.74 and 23.28%, while in lungs these were 17.37 and 13.68%, respectively, and intensity of the metacesode was higher in liver than in lungs.

MORPHOMETRY OF PROTOSCOLECES ROSTELLAR HOOKS OF ECHINOCOCCUS GRANULOSUS ISOLATES FROM PUNJAB, PAKISTAN

TLDR
It is suggested that for strain identification of E. granulosus the traditional rostellar hooks morphology must be followed by molecular analysis.

Rostellar hook morphology of Echinococcus granulosus (Batsch, 1786) from natural and experimental Australian hosts, and its implications for strain recognition

TLDR
Evidence was presented to show that the morphological differences seen in sylvatic hosts could be attributed to host-induced effects, and that the previously accepted existence of two mainland strains should be investigated further.
