The abundance of freshwater snails in two rural sites of Pinar del Río, Cuba, which harbor Pseudosuccinea columella susceptible and resistant to miracidia of Fasciola hepatica was followed for one year. Susceptible snails were found in the most anthropic site (IPA) whereas the resistant population inhabited the most preserved one (El Azufre). Only two snail species coexisted with P. columella at IPA site (Physa cubensis and Tarebia granifera) while five species were found at El Azufre… Expand
Patterns of distribution, population genetics and ecological requirements of field-occurring resistant and susceptible Pseudosuccinea columella snails to Fasciola hepatica in Cuba
TLDR
It is speculated that the limited distribution of resistant populations in Cuba might be related to a better exploitation of sites that are less suitable to snails (thus, with lower competition), rather than to a differential ecological restriction to specific environmental conditions from susceptible P. columella.

Natural resistance to Fasciola hepatica (Trematoda) in Pseudosuccinea columella snails: A review from literature and insights from comparative "omic" analyses.
TLDR
Comparison of whole snail transcriptomes and the proteomes of the albumen gland revealed that resistant and susceptible strains differed mainly in an enrichment of particular biological processes/functions and a greater abundance of proteins/transcripts associated with immune defense/stress response in resistant snails, indicating a differential allocation of molecular resources to self-maintenance and survival in resistant P. columella.

Fasciola hepatica in Cuba: compatibility of different isolates with two intermediate snail hosts, Galba cubensis and Pseudosuccinea columella
TLDR
Results clearly demonstrate that G. cubensis is a more compatible host for F. hepatica in Cuba when compared with P. columella, and the role that P.columella may have in fascioliasis transmission under certain conditions should not be disregarded. Expand
Role of the lymnaeid snail Pseudosuccinea columella in the transmission of the liver fluke Fasciola hepatica in Egypt
TLDR
Successful experimental infection of P. columella with F. hepatica suggests that this lymnaeid snail is an important intermediate host for the transmission of fascioliasis in Egypt. Expand
Molecular detection of the infection with Fasciola hepatica in field-collected snails of Galba truncatula and Lymnaea stagnalis from West Azarbaijan, Iran
TLDR
The RFLP analysis of 28SrRNA gene was proven to be a useful tool for detection of the infection and its transmission by the intermediate hosts, and can help with the establishment of suitable control programs against fasciolosis in livestock and human in any region of interest. Expand
Seasonal and Geographic Distribution of Cercarial Infection in Lymnaea gedrosiana (Pulmunata: Lymnaeidae) In North West Iran
TLDR
Due to the important role of pond snails in transmission of cercariae to fish as a source of zoonotic diseases, it is essential to estimate the distribution and abundance of the snails and the rate of their infection with different trematodes’ cerceriae, and establish control programs in each region. Expand
Prevalence of Cercariae Infection in Lymnaea auricularia (Linnaeus, 1758) in NorthWest of Iran
TLDR
It is concluded that L. auricularia could be an important intermediate host of large group digenian trematodes in the region, which is necessary to take consideration in the control program of trematode infection. Expand
First report of larval stages of Fasciola hepatica in a wild population of Pseudosuccinea columella from Cuba and the Caribbean.
TLDR
A wild population of the lymnaeid snail Pseudosuccinea columella infected by larval stages of Fasciola hepatica was discovered in the Pinar del Río Province, Cuba, for the first time this species has been found acting as intermediate host of F. hepatics under natural conditions. Expand
Identification and Determination of the Geographical Distribution of Freshwater Snails in Lorestan, Iran.
TLDR
The obtained results revealed the effects of season and geographical region on the distribution and population density of snails in the province and can be used for the implementation of control programs against parasitic diseases in the region, including trematodes. Expand

Evidence of phenotypic differences between resistant and susceptible isolates of Pseudosuccinea columella (Gastropoda: Lymnaeidae) to Fasciola hepatica (Trematoda: Digenea) in Cuba
TLDR
Isolates of Cuban Pseudosuccinea columella susceptible and non-susceptible to Fasciola hepatica miracidial infection were compared for cellular reaction to miraculous development, shell morphometrics, mantle pigmentation pattern, and egg laying behaviour, showing a clear distinction between groups. Expand
Fasciola hepatica (Trematoda: Digenea): its effect on the life history traits of Pseudosuccineacolumella (Gasteropoda: Lymnaeidae), an uncommon interaction
TLDR
An uncommon snail-trematode interaction pattern was found for the Pseudosuccinea columella – Fasciola hepatica model under laboratory conditions, and these non-susceptible snails exhibited lower fecundity and survival compared to non-exposed susceptible snails under identical laboratory conditions. Expand
Detection and genetic distance of resistant populations of Pseudosuccinea columella (Mollusca: Lymnaeidae) to Fasciola hepatica (Trematoda: Digenea) using RAPD markers.
TLDR
The novel resistant isolate displayed an RAPD profile identical to the profile of two other isolates previously identified as resistant to F. hepatica, however, clear differences in RAPD banding patterns and genetic distance were observed between resistant and susceptible isolates. Expand
The occurrence of the snail Lymnaea columella on grazing areas in New South Wales and studies on its susceptibility to Fasciola hepatica.
TLDR
Although the North American snail, Lymnaea columella has previously only been reported from metropolitan areas, large populations of the snail were found east of Lismore and laboratory studies showed that this snail species was highly susceptible to infection with miracidia of F. hepatica. Expand
Fasciola hepatica: identification of molecular markers for resistant and susceptible Pseudosuccinea columella snail hosts.
TLDR
This is the first time that a genetic variation using RAPD markers is demonstrated between susceptible and resistant lymnaeid snails vis-a-vis of F. hepatica infection in absence of experimental selection. Expand
Estudo morfométrico da concha de Lymnaea columella say, 1817 (Mollusca, Gastropoda, Pulmonata)
TLDR
The results revealed that only hardness of water was associated with the robustness of the shells, and the snail populations of different areas were similar, showing constant proportions, but they diverged in their absolute dimensions. Expand
First report of Lymnaea columella Say, 1817 (Pulmonata: Lymnaeidae) naturally infected with Fasciola hepatica (Linnaeus,1758) (Trematoda: Digenea) in Argentina.
TLDR
The events suggest that an enzootic transmission cycle of F. hepatica has been recently established in northeastern Corrientes, a province bounded on the north by Paraguay, on the east by Brazil and on the southeast by Uruguay. Expand

TLDR
Samples of snails were collected in the counties of Miracatu and Eldorado, in Vale do Ribeira, in the State of Sao Paulo and infected snails naturally infected by F. hepatica were obtained. Expand
