Random amplified polymorphic DNA analysis was applied to DNAs extracted from Trichuris trichiura eggs recovered from human fecal samples. Four out of 6 primers tested displayed 18 distinct and well defined polymorphic patterns, ranging from 650 to 3200 base pairs. These results, upon retrieval and DNA sequencing of some of these bands from agarose gels, might help in establishing. T. trichiura specific genetic markers, not available yet, and an important step to design primers to be used in… Expand
Amplification and sequencing of Trichuris trichiura ancient DNA extracted from archaeological sediments
TLDR
PCR-based aDNA analysis in this study can serve as effective method to confirm the presence of T. trichiura eggs in the soils or coprolites collected from archaeological sites. Expand
Detection of Ancient DNA of Encephalitozoon intestinalis (Microsporidia) in Archaeological Material
Abstract:  Ancient DNA (aDNA) of Encephalitozoon intestinalis (Microsporidia, Fungi) was detected in archaeological material originated from New Town of Prague (Czech Republic) with the use ofExpand
Molecular techniques for the study and diagnosis of parasite infection
TLDR
The objective of the present study was to review the main current and new diagnostic techniques for confirmation of parasite infections, namely: polymerasechain reaction (PCR), real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR, loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP), Luminex xMAP, random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD), amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP), and restriction fragment length SNP (RFLP).

Trichuris vulpis and T. trichiura infections among schoolchildren of a rural community in northwestern Thailand: the possible role of dogs in disease transmission
TLDR
Although the dimension of Trichuris eggs provided some diagnostic clues for species differentiation, a remarkable variation in the length of these whipworm eggs was observed among samples that could lead to misdiagnosis. Expand
Técnicas com Marcadores Moleculares Usadas nas Ciências da Saúde
TLDR
The amplifying molecular markers do not have this advantage, but they have a low cost, short period of time is required and there is easiness in the execution, so they are the most used by researchers. Expand
New paleoparasitological techniques
TLDR
The main object of this study is to contribute to the application of other methods used successfully in the field of palaeoparasitology: the hydration, the McMaster method, the use of the compressorium and triquineloscope, as well as the different methods used to analyse hair samples. Expand

Paleoparasitological Studies on Mummies of the Joseon Dynasty, Korea
TLDR
The findings and achievements of the recent paleoparasitological examinations of Joseon mummies are summarized and the prospects for future research in this vein are discussed. Expand
Paleo-parasitological study on the soils collected from archaeological sites in old district of Seoul City
A paleo-parasitological study was performed on soil samples from archaeological sites in the old district of Seoul Metropolitan City (Old Seoul City) where the capital of the Joseon Kingdom wasExpand
Gastrointestinal Parasite infections in Chacma Baboons (Papio ursinus) of the Cape Peninsula, South Africa: the influence of individual, group, and anthropogenic factors.
TLDR
This study investigates whether anthropogenic changes in the Cape Peninsula, South Africa, have affected gastrointestinal parasite infections in a free-living population of chacma baboons and provides the first evidence of a likely reverse zoonotic infection of baboons with human parasites. Expand

Ancient DNA from Ascaris: extraction amplification and sequences from eggs collected in coprolites.
TLDR
The study of ancient DNA from helminth parasites is of interest as it may answer long-standing questions in the history of infectious diseases and gives a possibility to compare these ancient sequences with those of modern populations. Expand
Characterization of Spanish Trichinella isolates by random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD).
TLDR
The random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) assay was used to find molecular markers able to distinguish Trichinella spiralis from T. britovi, the two recognized Spanish Trichinalla species, and confirmed that the selected diagnostic DNA fragments were not species-specific, but showed potential differences in the copy number among the examined Trichininglla genetic clusters.

Characterization of four species of Trichuris (Nematoda: Enoplida) by their second internal transcribed spacer ribosomal DNA sequence
TLDR
Differences were detected between the ITS2 sequences of T. suis, T. leporis, and T. ovis, indicating that Trichuris species can reliably be differentiated by theirITS2 sequences and PCR-linked restriction-fragment-length polymorphism (RFLP). Expand
Detection of circulating Trichinella spiralis larvae by polymerase chain reaction
TLDR
It is shown herein that specific DNA can be amplified from T. spiralis migratory larvae in the blood of experimentally infected mice and may be applied to human trichinosis, but its diagnostic value will depend on the severity and stage of the infection. Expand
Improvement of a polymerase chain reaction assay for the detection of Echinococcus multilocularis DNA in faecal samples of foxes.
TLDR
Large-scale epidemiological surveys of fox excrements may be possible by using Gene-Fizz treatment prior to PCR amplification reactions, showing that this method allowed discrimination between E. multilocularis and E. granulosus. Expand
Experimental paleoparasitology: identification of Trypanosoma cruzi DNA in desiccated mouse tissue.
TLDR
PCR was used to study the possibility of Trypanosoma cruzi kinetoplast DNA extraction from experimentally desiccated mouse tissue and the results obtained suggest the application of this technique to T. cruzi detection in archaeological material. Expand
The differentiation of parasitic nematodes using random amplified polymorphic DNA.
TLDR
DNA from species and races of plant parasitic nematodes and a human parasitic Nematode were subjected to polymerase chain reaction amplification using one arbitrary primer to results in relatively simple DNA profiles that include polymorphic markers known as random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPDs).

Fast and reliable extraction of protozoan parasite DNA from fecal specimens.
TLDR
A novel method for DNA extraction from specimens containing spores and oocysts of Enterocytozoon bieneusi and Cryptosporidium parvum, respectively is described and it is estimated that this method may increase the sensitivity of parasite DNA detection in fecal specimens up to tenfold. Expand
Detection of Echinococcus multilocularis DNA in fox faeces using DNA amplification.
TLDR
DNA isolation from fox excrement was performed according to a novel procedure involving lysis in KOH, phenol-chloroform extraction and a purification step on a matrix (Prep-A-Gene), and the target sequence for amplification was the E. multilocularis U1 snRNA gene. Expand
