Toxocara cati (T. cati) and Toxocara canis (T. canis), roundworms of cats and dogs, are zoonotic parasites that cause visceral and ocular larval migrans in human beings. Humans and other paratenic hosts are infected by ingesting the infective Toxocara eggs from contaminated soil, unwashed hands, contaminated raw vegetables or ingestion of under-cooked organs and muscle tissues of infected paratenic hosts such as chickens, cattle and sheep. It has been shown that the seroprevalence of…

This study showed that T. canis has established in Sprague–Dawley rats and could serve as a model for Toxocara infection studies.

Toxocariasis: A Neglected Parasitic Disease with Public Health Importance
Human toxocariasis tends to be more prevalent in tropical and subtropical countries and rural populations than in temperate, urban and industrialized ones and this limits the control, preventive and eradicative programs.
Trend of toxocariasis in Iran: a review on human and animal dimensions.
To better understand the trend of toxocariasis researches in Iran, this study was performed to analyze different aspects of this zoonotic disease including history, life cycle, species, human animals and environmental studies, diagnostic aspects and treatments to find out the gaps.
Disposition kinetics of albendazole and metabolites in laying hens.
The work reported here provides useful information on the pharmacokinetic behavior of ABZ after both i.v. and oral administrations in hens, which is a useful first step to evaluate its potential as an anthelmintic tool for use in poultry.
Albendazole treatment in laying hens: Egg residues and its effects on fertility and hatchability
Egg hatchability was not affected by ABZ treatment at 10 mg/kg in medicated feed, but it decreased when the dose was 4-8 times higher, and these results should be considered when ABZ is used for deworming laying hens.
Detection of IgG against Toxocara in Sera of Employees of Meat Industry
It is concluded that meat workers do not have a higher risk for Toxocara infection than subjects without this occupation do, and the 2% seroprevalence of ToxOCara infection found in control subjects might suggest a lowSeroprevals of this infection among people with other occupations in Durango City.

Conventional methods of egg cooking cannot be considered a tool to eliminate all veterinary drug residues because they cannot be regarded as a tool for eliminating unstable drug residues.


Histopathologic changes and larval recovery of Toxocara cati in experimentally infected chickens
It is suggested that chickens could be paratenic hosts, and human infection with Toxocara cati might occur after consumption of raw or undercooked meat of infected chicken with T. cati.

The present study was undertaken to get further information on the persistence and distribution of T. canis larvae in the tissues of chickens and pigeons.
Highlights of human toxocariasis.
Human toxocariasis is a helminthozoonosis due to the migration of Toxocara species larvae through human organism, which is high in developed countries, especially in rural areas, and also in some tropical islands.
Distribution of Toxocara infection in the environment and in definitive and paratenic hosts in Estonia.
According to the results of this study, cats more often carry Toxocara infection than dogs, and children playing in sandpits are the main risk group for larval toxocarosis.
Experimental Visceral Larva Migrans in Chicken With Toxocara Canis
The aim of this study was to determine the distribution of Toxocara canis larvae in some organs of chicks and to clarify if the larvae found in brain will be able to lead to the behavioral disorder or not and no behavioral disorder was observed in either control or experimental animals.
Establishment and migration pattern of Toxocara canis larvae in chickens
Observations suggest that T. canis larvae can migrate by a hepatopulmonary route in the chicken, and reinforces the possibility that chickens harboring migrating T.canis larvae may pose a zoonotic risk, especially if the liver is consumed.
