Fishborne heterophyid trematodes infecting humans are at least 29 species worldwide and belong to 13 genera. Its global burden is much more than 7 million infected people. They include Metagonimus (M. yokogawai, M. takahashii, M. miyatai, M. minutus, and M. katsuradai), Heterophyes (H. heterophyes, H. nocens, H. dispar, and H. aequalis), Haplorchis (H. taichui, H. pumilio, H. yokogawai, and H. vanissimus), Pygidiopsis (P. summa and P. genata), Heterophyopsis (H. continua), Stellantchasmus (S… Expand
Epidemiology of Trematode Infections: An Update.
TLDR
Digenetic trematodes infecting humans are more than 91 species which belong to 46 genera all over the world and praziquantel has been proved to be highly effective against most species of trematode infections except fascioliasis. Expand
Foodborne Intestinal Flukes: A Brief Review of Epidemiology and Geographical Distribution.
TLDR
Foodborne intestinal flukes are highly diverse consisting of at least 74 species with a diverse global distribution and epidemiological characteristics such as the prevalence, geographical distribution, and clinical and public health significance are poorly known. Expand
Metacercariae of Haplorchis pumilio (Looss, 1896) in Carassius auratus (Linnaeus, 1758) from Mérida City, Yucatán, Mexico: a co-introduced parasite
TLDR
It is inferred that this trematode was likely introduced by accident through pet shop commerce together with the complex of the IASs, M. tuberculata and C. auratus, as Yucatán is the second major ornamental fish producing state in Mexico, accidental release of these IAS's into the aquatic environment could result in the introduction of H. pumilio into regional freshwater bodies.

Heterophyid trematodes (Digenea) from penguins: A new species of Ascocotyle Looss, 1899, first description of metacercaria of Ascocotyle (A.) patagoniensis Hernández-Orts, Montero, Crespo, García, Raga and Aznar, 2012, and first molecular data
TLDR
Two species of heterophyid trematodes were found in the Magellanic penguin, Spheniscus magellanicus (Forster), from Patagonia, Argentina, and are considered to be species inquirenda. Expand
Haplorchis pumilio (Trematoda: Heterophyidae) as a new fish-borne zoonotic agent transmitted by Melanoides tuberculata (Mollusca: Thiaridae) in Brazil: A morphological and molecular study.
TLDR
The fishborne zoonotic trematode Haplorchis pumilio (Looss, 1896) is here reported for the first time in Brazil based on morphological, experimental and molecular studies, revealing the potential for occurrence of human haplorchiasis in Brazil. Expand
Current Knowledge of Small Flukes (Digenea: Heterophyidae) from South America
TLDR
A ‘state-of-the-art’ review of the South American heterophyid species is provided, including classical and molecular taxonomy, parasite ecology, host-parasite interaction studies and a list of species and their hosts. Expand
The life cycle of a zoonotic parasite reassessed: Experimental infection of Melanoides tuberculata (Mollusca: Thiaridae) with Centrocestus formosanus (Trematoda: Heterophyidae)
TLDR
This report is the first to show that, in the life cycle of C. formosanus, infection of molluscs occurs passively by ingestion of eggs, followed by a long intramolluscan phase. Expand
Proteomic analysis of Ascocotyle longa (Trematoda: Heterophyidae) metacercariae.
TLDR
The proteome profile of A. longa metacercariae collected from the fish Mugil liza from Brazil was analyzed and a large repertoire of proteins, which are mainly involved in energy metabolism and cell structure, were identified. Expand
Diversity of digenean trematode larvae in snails from Lake Victoria, Kenya: first reports and bioindicative aspects.
TLDR
Snails from the study site with little direct anthropogenic influence had the highest prevalence and diversity of digenean larvae, indicating that environmental conditions influence trematode occurrence. Expand
Liver fluke infections by Amphimerus sp. (Digenea: Opisthorchiidae) in definitive and fish intermediate hosts in Manabí province, Ecuador
TLDR
This is the first study to confirm the current endemicity of Amphimerus sp. Expand

Praziquantel has been proved to be highly effective against most species of trematode infections except fascioliasis. Expand
A new endemic focus of Heterophyes nocens and other heterophyid infections in a coastal area of Gangjin-gun, Jeollanam-do.
TLDR
The surveyed coastal village has been newly known as an endemic focus of human H. nocens infection and consuming raw mullets was the presumable source of human heterophyid infections. Expand
Food-borne intestinal trematode infections in the Republic of Korea.
TLDR
A total of 19 species of food-borne intestinal trematodes have been reported in humans in the Republic of Korea, but the major source of human infection is the grass snake Rhabdophis tigrina, a paratenic host. Expand

TLDR
The high prevalence (100%) of A. (P.) longa encysted in the mullets examined within the urban area of Rio de Janeiro indicates the potentially great public health impact of the consumption of raw mullets. Expand

TLDR
The results confirm that the estuarine fish in Jinju-man (Bay) are heavily infected with heterophyid metacercariae, and it is found for the first time that the perch acts as a second intermediate host for M. takahashii. Expand
