This study describes the first record of Bourgelatia diducta (Nematoda: Chabertiidae) from wild boars in the Republic of Korea (=South Korea). Gastrointestinal tracts of 87 Korean wild boars (Sus scrofa coreanus) hunted in mountains in the south-western part of South Korea between 2009 and 2012 were examined for their visceral helminths. B. diducta, as identified by morphological characteristics of the head and tail, were recovered from the large intestine of 47 (54%) wild boars. The average… Expand
Identification and Prevalence of Globocephalus samoensis (Nematoda: Ancylostomatidae) among Wild Boars (Sus scrofa coreanus) from Southwestern Regions of Korea
The first record of Globocephalus samoensis (Nematoda: Ancylostomatidae) recovered in wild boars from southwestern regions of Korea is described and morphological characteristics and identification keys provided will be helpful in the faunistic and taxonomic studies for strongylid nematodes in both domestic and wild pigs.

Visceral helminths of wild boars (Sus scrofa leucomystax) in Japan, with special reference to a new species of the genus Morgascaridia Inglis, 1958 (Nematoda: Schneidernematidae)
Twenty-nine Japanese wild boars collected during the hunting seasons of 2005 and 2006 in the western part of the mainland of Japan (Honshu), were examined for their visceral helminths, finding eighteen helminth parasites were prevalent in them. Expand
Prevalence of gastrointestinal nematode parasites in intensively managed pigs of different ages and sexes in Umuahia city of Abia State.
The result of this study provides a base-line data for assessing the effectiveness of control strategies against gastro-intestinal parasitism in intensively raised pigs in Umuahia, Abia state and the presence of different types of gastrointestinal parasite in different sex and age bracket. Expand
Nematode parasite infections of domestic pigs in a sub-tropical and high-rainfall area of India.
Fourteen hundred and ninety-six domestic pigs from a sub-tropical and high-rainfall area of India were examined over a period of 18 months to ascertain their nematode parasite spectrum, finding Ascaris suum, the most prevalent species, is presumably of zoonotic importance. Expand

Twenty-five species of helminth and arthropod parasites were recorded from village reared pigs in Papua New Guinea during a survey carried out during 1966–69, with the lungworm considered to be a major contributing cause of mortality in highland areas. Expand

Experimental Oesophagostomum dentatum infection in the pig: worm populations resulting from single infections with three doses of larvae.
At high population densities, stunted development of worms and reduced fecundity among female worms were found and there was a tendency for the distribution of the worms within the intestine to be altered with increasing population size. Expand

Morphological types of O. dentatum in pigs and an apparent new host record for O. venulosum in cattle suggests aggressive recruitment within the genus. Expand

Experimental Oesophagostomum dentatum infections in the pig: worm populations resulting from trickle infections with three dose levels of larvae.
Detailed analyses of the worm populations in pigs experimentally infected by trickle infections with different dose levels of the nodular worm revealed a clear dose-dependency in worm recovery, percentage adult worms, worm lengths and female fecundity, as all these measures declined significantly with increasing dose level.

A study of diseases and parasites of pigs in the Solomon Islands during 1967 to 1969 indicated that infectious diseases were of little consequence. Four arthropod parrasite species were found: oneExpand
