  • Whether the brown rat (Rattus norvegicus) is a reservoir of Trichinella spp. infection or merely an accidental host, which may be vector of Trichinella spp., continues to be debated. We estimated the prevalence of Trichinella sp. infection in brown rat populations and in domestic pigs in 2 villages in Croatia, where Trichinella sp. infection in pigs has been endemic in the past 10 yr. Trichinella spiralis larvae, identified by a multiplex polymerase chain reaction analyses, were the only… CONTINUE READING
