The present study was performed to survey the infection status of zoonotic intestinal trematode (ZIT) in stray cats from 5 major riverside areas in the Republic of Korea. Total 400 stray cats were captured with live-traps in riverside areas of Seomjingang (‘gang’ means river) (203 cats) from June to October 2010, and of Yeongsangang (41), Nakdonggang (57), Geumgang (38), and Hangang (61 cats) from June to October 2011, respectively. Small intestines resected from cats were opened with a pair of… Expand
Infections with Centrocestus armatus Metacercariae in Fishes from Water Systems of Major Rivers in Republic of Korea
TLDR
It was confirmed that among the 3 species of rasborinid fish, Z. platypus and Z. temminckii are highly prevalent and O. uncirostris amurensis is moderately prevalent with CaMc, and variety of fish species act as the second intermediate hosts of C. armatus in Korea. Expand
Prevalence of endoparasitic and viral infections in client-owned cats in metropolitan Bangkok, Thailand, and the risk factors associated with feline hookworm infections.
TLDR
It is emphasized that diagnosis of parasitic infections and the routine use of antiparasitic medications should be encouraged by veterinarians and to owners in order to reduce the reservoir of potentially zoonotic parasites. Expand
Infections of Two Isthmiophora Species (Digenea: Echinostomatidae) in Wild Mammals from Republic of Korea with Their Morphological Descriptions
TLDR
It was confirmed for the first time that 3 species of mustelid mammals, i.e., M. sibirica, M. lucurus, and M. flavigula, are to be the new definitive hosts of I. hortensis in Korea. Expand
Intestinal Flukes Recovered from a Herring Gull, Larus argentatus, in the Republic of Korea
TLDR
Trematode specimens were collected from the intestine of a herring gull, Larus argentatus, which was found in a critical condition on the shore of a small island located at the western coast of the Korean peninsula. Expand
Prevalence of heterophyid infection in tilapia fish “Orechromas niloticus” with emphasize of cats role as neglected reservoir for zoonotic Heterophyes heterophyes in Egypt
TLDR
A high infection rate of EMC in edible tilapia fish in the study area is clarifies and highlights the possible role of cats as a reservoir of the digenetic trematodes particularly the zoonotic H. heterophyes, that necessities planning and application of suitable control measures. Expand
New Definitive Hosts and Differential Body Indices of Isthmiophora hortensis (Digenea: Echinostomatidae)
TLDR
The 2 species of wild animals, the raccoon dog and wild boar, have been added as new definitive hosts for I. hortensis and the morphological characteristics of adult flukes derived from a variety of host source were redescribed to support the taxonomic validity of this echinostome species. Expand
Epidemiology of Trematode Infections: An Update.
TLDR
Digenetic trematodes infecting humans are more than 91 species which belong to 46 genera all over the world and praziquantel has been proved to be highly effective against most species of trematode infections except fascioliasis. Expand
Developmental and Phylogenetic Characteristics of Stellantchasmus falcatus (Trematoda: Heterophyidae) from Thailand
TLDR
This study concluded that Dermogenus pusillus serves as a compatible second intermediate host of S. falcatus in Thailand and that S.falcatus can develop rapidly in the experimental chicks. Expand
Euryhelmis squamula (Digenea: Heterophyidae) Recovered from Korean Raccoon Dog, Nyctereutes procyonoides koreensis, in Korea
TLDR
The small heterophyid flukes recovered from the small intestines of Korean raccoon dog, N. procyonoides koreensis, were identified as Euryhelmis squamula (Digenea: Heterophyidae), which is to be a new trematode fauna in Korea by this study. Expand

Gastrointestinal helminthes in stray cats (Felis catus) from Aizawl, Mizoram, India.
TLDR
Gastrointestinal helminthes were collected from necropsied stray cats in Aizawl, Mizoram, India from January 2005 to April, 2009, indicating the possibility of these cats were paratenic hosts for toxocariasis in cats. Expand
A Survey Study on Gastrointestinal Parasites of Stray Cats in Northern Region of Nile Delta, Egypt
TLDR
The overall prevalence of intestinal parasites may continue to rise due to lack of functional veterinary clinics for cat care in Egypt and there is a need to plan adequate control programs to diagnose, treat and control gastrointestinal parasites of companion as well as stray cats in the region.

Prevalence of Clonorchis sinensis Infections Along the Five Major Rivers in Republic of Korea, 2007
TLDR
Investigation of the prevalence of Clonorchis sinensis infection among residents of the five major river basins in Korea revealed little decrease in positive rate of C. sinensis compared with the result of southern endemic areas of Korea in 2006. Expand
Intestinal helminth infections in feral cats and a raccoon dog on Aphaedo Island, Shinan-gun, with a special note on Gymnophalloides seoi infection in cats.
TLDR
Results indicate that feral cats and raccoon dogs on Aphaedo are natural definitive hosts for intestinal trematodes and cestodes, including G. seoi, H. nocens, and S. erinacei. Expand
High prevalence of helminth parasites in feral cats in Majorca Island (Spain)
TLDR
Feral cats serve as reservoirs of helminths in the countryside of Majorca and their populations should be controlled and positive associations found are probably related to host susceptibility. Expand
