The principal intermediate hosts of An­ giostrongylus malaysiensis are land snails and slugs (Lim and Heyneman, 1965; Lim et al., 1965; Bisseru and Verghese, 1970). Fresh­ water snails have also been found naturally infected with the parasite but the infection rates and worm-loads were low as compared to the land molluscs (Lim and Krishnansamy, 1970). In Thailand freshwater snails, parti­ cularly Pila spp., were found to be one of the important intermediate hosts of A. cantonen­ sis as a cause… Expand
Co-occurrence of Angiostrongylus malaysiensis and Angiostrongylus cantonensis DNA in cerebrospinal fluid: Evidence from human eosinophilic meningitis after ingestion of raw snail dish in Thailand
Angiostrongylus cantonensis, the main causative agent of human neuroangiostrongyliasis, is a food-borne parasitic zoonosis, particularly in Southeast Asia and Mainland China. AngiostrongylusExpand
Aquatic molluscs as auxiliary hosts for terrestrial nematode parasites: implications for pathogen transmission in a changing climate
The present review assesses the mechanisms of terrestrial nematode transmission through aquatic molluscs focusing on metastrongyloid and rhabditoid species, the importance of variable susceptibility ofmolluscan hosts, field studies on natural occurrence within aquatic habitats, and the impact of extreme climatic events (floods and droughts) that may increase in frequency under climate change.

Macroparasite communities of wild rats from island and coastal habitats in Peninsular Malaysia / Nur Syazana Binti Mad Tahir
The occurrences of macroparasites communities in 363 wild rats of two urban coastal cities and two islands of Peninsular Malaysia were recorded between May 2010 to August 2011 and the ectoparasite diversity index was low for all sites, although Carey Island recorded higher index compared to other locations.

Natural Infection of Angiostrongylus Cantonensis in Malaysian Rodents and Intermediate Hosts, and Preliminary Observations on Acquired Resistance*
Angiostrongylus cantonensis was found in rats in the Kuala Lumpur area of Malaya and was most common in field rats trapped in an oil-palm estate, but it was commonly found in these hosts captured in scrub, high grass, ricefields, mangrove swamps, and in villages. Expand
Observations on the Method of Human Infection with Angiostrongylus cantonensis in Tahiti.
Infective larvae of the rat lungworm Angiostrongylus cantonensis, the causative agent of parasitic meningoencephalitis in man, have been found in about 4% of the stomach contents of freshwater prawnsExpand
