In Southeast Asia, a total of 59 species of foodborne intestinal flukes have been known to occur in humans. [...] Key Result The family Plagiorchiidae follows the next containing 5 species in 1 genus (Plagiorchis). The family Lecithodendriidae includes 3 species in 2 genera (Phaneropsolus and Prosthodendrium). In 9 other families, 1 species in 1 genus each is involved; Cathaemaciidae (Cathaemacia), Fasciolidae (Fasciolopsis), Gastrodiscidae (Gastrodiscoides), Gymnophallidae (Gymnophalloides), Microphallidae…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

TLDR
Praziquantel has been proved to be highly effective against most species of trematode infections except fascioliasis. 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
Insights on foodborne zoonotic trematodes in freshwater snails in North and Central Vietnam.
TLDR
The overall prevalence was different among snail species and habitats and showed a seasonal trend, while parapleurolophocercous and echinostome cercariae emerged as the most common cerbariae in snails in Yen Bai, while monostome, echinstome, and megalura cercarie were most common in Thanh Hoa.

Fishborne zoonotic heterophyid infections: An update
TLDR
In this review, the most updated knowledge on the morphology, biology, epidemiology, pathogenesis and pathology, immunology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis and treatment, and prevention and control of fishborne zoonotic heterophyid infections is provided. 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.

Global status of fish-borne zoonotic trematodiasis in humans
TLDR
Fishborne zoonotic trematodes (FZT), infecting humans and mammals worldwide, are reviewed and options for control discussed and information on the first and second intermediate hosts as well as on reservoir hosts and on habits of human eating raw or undercooked fish is presented. Expand
Potentially zoonotic helminthiases of murid rodents from the Indo-Chinese peninsula: impact of habitat and the risk of human infection.
TLDR
Among the rodent species, Rattus tanezumi seems to play the most important role as a reservoir by hosting seven zoonotic heminth species, suggesting that it can act as an important bridge species, carrying parasites across different habitats. Expand
Centrocestus formosanus (Heterophyidae): Human Infections and the Infection Source in Lao PDR
TLDR
The results suggest that human C. formosanus infections have been masked by other trematode infections, including Opisthorchis viverrini and Haplorchis taichui, in Lao People's Democratic Republic. Expand
Epidemiological and molecular data on heterophyid trematode metacercariae found in the muscle of grey mullets (Osteichthyes: Mugilidae) from Sardinia (western Mediterranean Sea)
TLDR
The presence of metacercariae was high in all hosts; the highest prevalence is of Heterophyes sp. 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
Echinostomes in humans
TLDR
Clinical importance of each echinostome species, as well as mucosal defense mechanisms of different hosts, is yet poorly understood and epidemiological surveys and detection of human infections are required. Expand

TLDR
Better understanding of all aspects of the life cycle, transmission, host-parasite relationships and the effective control of C. formosanus in Mexico is necessary and adequate preventive and control measures should be applied in aquaculture. Expand

TLDR
It is confirmed that feral cats in Korea are infected with a variety of helminth parasite species, and among the helminths detected, E. pancreaticum, S. fuscata, and E. revolutum represent helmineth fauna which have not been reported previously in feral Cats in the Republic of Korea. Expand
A new endemic focus of Heterophyes nocens, Pygidiopsis summa, and other intestinal flukes in a coastal area of Muan-gun, Chollanam-do.
TLDR
The surveyed coastal area of Muan-gun, Chollanam-do was proven to be a new endemic focus of H. nocens and P. summa and the occurrence of a few infected cases suggests that this area should also be a low-grade endemic area of S. fuscata, H. continua, and G. seoi. Expand
[Studies on the Metagonimus fluke in the Daecheong reservoir and the upper stream of Geum river, Korea]
TLDR
The flukes belonging to genus Metagonimus distributed along the Geum River was concluded to be identical with Miyata type of M. yokogawai as that Saito had proposed. 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
