Free-grazing ducks play a major role in the rural economy of Eastern Asia in the form of egg and meat production. In Thailand, the geographical location, tropical climate conditions and wetland areas of the country are suitable for their husbandry. These environmental factors also favor growth, multiplication, development, survival, and spread of duck parasites. In this study, a total of 90 free-grazing ducks from northern, central, and northeastern regions of Thailand were examined for… Expand
Paragonimus and Paragonimiasis in Vietnam: an Update
TLDR
Comprehensive molecular epidemiological and geobiological studies on the genus in Vietnam and adjacent countries are needed to clarify the biodiversity and public health significance of the lung flukes. Expand
Morphology and Molecular Identification of Echinostoma revolutum and Echinostoma macrorchis in Freshwater Snails and Experimental Hamsters in Upper Northern Thailand
TLDR
The presence of the life cycle of E. macrorchis is a new record in Thailand and the snail F. doliaris as their second intermediate host seems to be new among the literature. Expand
Epidemiological situation and molecular identification of cercarial stage in freshwater snails in Chao-Phraya Basin, Central Thailand
TLDR
This study was the first to report on cercarial infection in the Chao-Phraya Basin, Thailand, and revealed that a high variety of freshwater snails were infected by cercariae stage trematodes with a high prevalence. Expand
New records of helminth parasites of nine species of waterfowl in Mexico, and a checklist of the helminth fauna of Anatidae occurring in Mexican wetlands.
TLDR
The information about helminths parasitizing waterfowl will be useful for understanding the effect of habitat loss and pollution of wetlands where migratory birds spend the breeding season, for addressing ecological programs aimed to guarantee the health and conservation of North American migratorybirds, and for freshwater biologists interested in the understanding of freshwater ecosystem health. Expand
Cercarial trematodes in freshwater snails from Bangkok, Thailand: prevalence, morphological and molecular studies and human parasite perspective
TLDR
Understanding the general biology of trematode cercariae is important and necessary for the prevention and control of parasitic transmission that impacts aquatic cultivations, livestock farming and human health. Expand
Susceptibility of Laboratory Rodents to Trichinella papuae
TLDR
Rats yielded the lowest parasite RCI for all 3 Trichinella species, and hamsters ranked second and mice ranked third in susceptibility in terms of the RCI, while gerbils may be an alternative laboratory animal for isolation and maintenance of TrICHinella spp. Expand
Morphological Characterization of Emerging Cercariae among Lymnaeid Snails from Barangay Cawongan, Padre Garcia, Batangas, Philippines
TLDR
Local lymnaeid snails were infected with a single type of trematode larvae and coinfection with multiple larvae was rare but was encountered. Expand
Echinostoma revolutum: Development of a high performance DNA-specific primer to demonstrate the epidemiological situations of their intermediate hosts.
TLDR
The developed specific primer can be used as a species-specific identification tool with a high degree of sensitivity and specificity and can be applied for initiating surveillance programs of snail-borne diseases in both medical and veterinary studies. Expand
Morphological Characteristics and Phylogenetic Trends of Trematode Cercariae in Freshwater Snails from Nakhon Nayok Province, Thailand
TLDR
This investigation confirmed that the ITS2 data of cercariae could be used to study on phylogenetic relationships or to determine classification of this species at order and/or family level when possible. Expand
Morphological and Molecular Characterization of Lymnaeid Snails and Their Potential Role in Transmission of Fasciola spp. in Vietnam
TLDR
The molecular analyses using the second internal transcribed spacer (ITS2) of the nuclear ribosomal DNA clearly showed that lymnaeids in Vietnam include 3 species, Austropeplea viridis, Radix auricularia and Radix rubiginosa (morphologically identified as Lymnaea sp.). Expand

Fish-borne parasitic zoonoses: status and issues.
TLDR
Emphasis has been placed on liver fluke diseases such as clonorchiasis, opisthorchiasis and metorChiasis, as well as on intestinal trematodiasis (the heterophyids and echinostomes), anisakiasis (due to Anisakis simplex larvae), and diphyllobothriasis. Expand
Echinostomiasis: a common but forgotten food-borne disease.

  • Biology, Medicine
  • The American journal of tropical medicine and hygiene
  • 1998
TLDR
The World Health Organization control programs implemented for other food-borne helminthiases and sustained in endemic areas are not fully successful for echinostomiasis because these parasites display extremely broad specificity for the second intermediate host and are capable of completing the life cycle without involvement of the human host. Expand
Poultry as reservoir hosts for fishborne zoonotic trematodes in Vietnamese fish farms.
TLDR
The feeding of snails and fish remains to poultry, either intentionally or by discharge of waste from the slaughter of ducks and chickens into the ponds, was identified as risk factors for trematode infection. Expand
Gastro-intestinal helminths of ducks: Some Epidemiologic and pathologic aspects
TLDR
Prevalence of gastrointestinal helminth infection was significantly lower in rainy season in contrast to summer and winter season and in heavy infections of E. revolutum haemorrhagic enteritis were noticed and parasites were firmly attached with the mucosa. Expand
Edible mollusc, the intermediate host of helminths in Khon Kaen Province, Thailand.
TLDR
The habit of eating improerly cooked PILA snails indicates that Pila snails act as the carrier of parasitic infection in Thailand. Expand
Echinostoma ilocanum Infection in Oddar Meanchey Province, Cambodia
TLDR
Fecal examinations using the Kato Katz technique were performed on a total of 1,287 villagers of Oddar Meanchey Province, Cambodia in May 2007 and November 2009, resulting in the first record on the discovery of human E. ilocanum infection in Cambodia. Expand
Echinostome Flukes Receovered from Humans in Khammouane Province, Lao PDR
TLDR
The results indicate that the surveyed villages of Khammouane Province, Lao PDR are low-grade endemic foci of echinostomiasis, and human infections with E. revolutum, A. malayanum, and Euparyphium sp. Expand
Biological control of Fasciola gigantica with Echinostoma revolutum.
TLDR
A field trial was carried out in West Java to investigate the potential for control of fasciolosis of antagonism between larvae of Fasciola gigantica and Echinostoma revolutum in Lymnaea rubiginosa, finding that this method of biological control would reduce the infectivity of rice fields fertilised with bovine dung. Expand
Genetic differentiation of Echinostoma revolutum and Hypodereaum conoideum from domestic ducks in Thailand by multilocus enzyme electrophoresis
TLDR
Several loci were polymorphic within each species of echinostome, suggesting that these can be used to examine their population genetics, and could be distinguished at 17 of the 30 enzyme loci. Expand
Echinostoma and echinostomiasis.
TLDR
This chapter discusses the studies on the biology, life history, infectivity, immunology, pathology, epidemiology, physiology, and biochemistry of Echinostoma and focuses on E. trivolvis, E. caproni, and E. revolutum. Expand
