Screening of plant extracts for anthelmintic activity against Dactylogyrus intermedius (Monogenea) in goldfish (Carassius auratus).
With the aim of finding natural anthelmintic agents against Dactylogyrus intermedius (Monogenea) in goldfish (Carassius auratus), 26 plants were screened for antiparasitic properties using in vivo anthelmintic efficacy assay. The results showed that Caesalpinia sappan, Lysima chiachristinae, Cuscuta...
Chromosomal inversions among insecticide-resistant strains of Anopheles stephensi Liston, a malaria mosquito.
Polytene chromosomes were prepared from the ovarian nurse cells of semi-gravid females of ten insecticide-resistant strains of Anopheles stephensi. Altogether, 16 heterozygous paracentric inversions, namely b/+ (11D-16C) in alphamethrin; i/+ (14B-18A) and h/+ (27B-28A) in DDT; j/+ (14A-16B) in chlor...
Characterization and localization of an Eimeria-specific protein in Eimeria maxima.
A recently completed analysis of Eimeria maxima transcriptome identified a gene with homology to sequences expressed by E. tenella and E. acervulina but lacking homology with other organisms including other apicomplexans. This gene, designated Eimeria-specific protein (ESP), codes for a protein with...
Association between entomopathogenic nematodes and fungi for control of Rhipicephalus microplus (Acari: Ixodidae).
The aim of the study was to assess the effect of the association of entomopathogenic nematodes and fungi on Rhipicephalus microplus. The nematodes used were Heterorhabditis bacteriophora HP88 and Heterorhabditis indica LPP1 and the fungi were Metarhizium anisopliae IBCB 116 and Beauveria bassiana ES...
Differential diagnosis of cystic and alveolar echinococcosis using an immunochromatographic test based on the detection of specific antibodi...
We describe the development of an immunochromatographic test (ICT) using crude hydatid cyst fluid and a recombinant 18-kDa protein (rEm18) as antigens for the detection of E. granulosus and E. multilocularis antibodies in serum samples. The ICT was evaluated with serum samples from 195 echinococcosi...
Description of Oxynema xerusi n. sp. (Nematoda: Subuluroidea) parasitic in Xerus erythropus and Heliosciurus gambianus (Sciuridae) in Senega...
A new species of the genus Oxynema Linstow 1899, is described from the African sciurids Xerus erythropus and Heliosciurus gambianus. Oxynema xerusi n. sp. is characterized by the lack of cervical and caudal alae and by having unequal spicules. It differs from the closest species, Oxynema linstowi De...
Assessing helminth community structure and patterns in gizzard helminths of blue-winged teal (Anas discors).
Helminth community structure (prevalence and abundance) and patterns (associations and distributions) of gizzard worms were examined in blue-winged teal (Anas discors) migrating through south Texas to their wintering grounds (n = 50) and as they migrated back to their breeding grounds (n = 50). Thre...
Seroprevalence of malarial antibodies in Galapagos penguins (Spheniscus mendiculus).
We standardized an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay to test the level of exposure in this small population, as indicated by seroprevalence. Sera from adult and juvenile Galapagos penguins collected between 2004 and 2009 on the Galapagos archipelago were tested for the presence of anti- Plasmodium s...
Larval development of the feline lungworm Aelurostrongylus abstrusus in Helix aspersa.
The cat lungworm Aelurostrongylus abstrusus affects the domestic cat and other felids all over the world. Feline aelurostrongylosis is of importance in clinical feline medicine and is gaining more and more attention for the present expansion in the geographical range of A. abstrusus. Global warming...
Anthelmintic activity of Eucalyptus staigeriana encapsulated oil on sheep gastrointestinal nematodes.
We can state that E. staigeriana encapsulated oil had anthelmintic activity and can be used in gastrointestinal nematode control....
