In the Mediterranean area 2 subspecies of Echinococcus granulosus exist: E. g. equinus and E. g. granulosus. The latter is divided into sheep, cattle, pig and camel strains, the adult forms of which mainly occur in farm-dogs but sometimes in wild canidae. Some of these strains can infect man: namely, the sheep and the pig strain. The infectivity of the cattle strains for man is not certain. The epidemiological cycle is mainly a rural one, but it can become sylvatic or even urban. Thus, the… Expand
Genetic identification of cattle hydatid cyst isolates from northeast and southwest of Iran
All cysts recovered from these animals were sterile, highlighting the lower importance of cattle in the transmission of the “sheep strain”, which makes CE an important public health concern in Iran. Expand
Genotypic characterisation of Echinococcus granulosus isolated from human in Turkey.
The sheep strain (G1) is the predominant genotype of E. granulosus in humans in Turkey, and all of the human cysts belonged to the G1 genotype (common sheep strain), according to the results of this study. Expand
Cystic echinococcosis in Sardinia: farmers' knowledge and dog infection in sheep farms.
The results show that this is not only an educational problem, but also an economic one, stressing the need that future control plans should follow an integrative approach including veterinary and medical services, farmers, breeders' associations and the Government. Expand
Morphological characteristics of Echinococcus granulosus derived from buffalo in Iran
Twenty isolates of Echinococcus granulosus obtained from water buffalo from various parts of Iran were characterized on the basis of the morphology of the metacestode and the adult worm, showing that the common sheep strain (G1) of E. granulOSus may also use buffaloes as its intermediate host.

Occurrence of bovine hydatidosis and evaluation of its risk to humans in traditional communities of Southern Region of Ethiopia
Because of the high prevalence of E. granulosus infection in dogs and hydatidosis in cattle as well as common practice of backyard slaughtering, the risk of human infection in traditional communities is suspected to be high and requires immediate attention. Expand
Molecular characterization of Echinococcus granulosus in sheep and goats of Peloponnesus, Greece
The results document the prevalence of E. granulosus infection in food animals in this geographical area and reveal for the first time the presence of, at least, three parasite genotypes. Expand
Molecular characterization of Echinococcus granulosus in south of Iran.
Genotyping the cystic materials using PCR showed that the most prominent strains responsible for cystic echinococcosis in the Fars province are G1 and G6/7, while no evidence of E. multilocularis was recorded. Expand
Molecular characterization of Echinococcus granulosus strains in Sardinia
The results confirm the high prevalence of E. granulosus infection in livestock animals in Sardinian and reveal the presence of at least two parasite genotypes in Sardinia. Expand
Gastrointestinal Helminthes Infesting Stray Dogs with Emphasis on Echinococcus Spp . in Nyala , South Darfur State , Sudan
Open abattoirs and clandestine slaughterhouses appear to be the main reasons for the high prevalence of canine echinococcosis in the study area. Expand
Genetic identification and host range of the Spanish strains of Echinococcus granulosus.
Three strains of Echinococcus granulosus have been previously identified in Spain, but these Spanish strains have not been properly genotyped yet, and the aim of the present research was to identify the genotype to which they correspond to. Expand
