Several staining techniques to enhance the visibility of Acanthamoeba cysts.
Acanthamoeba is one of the most common free-living amoebae. It is widespread in the environment and can infect humans causing keratitis. Delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis leads to extensive corneal inflammation and profound visual loss. Therefore, accurate and rapid diagnosis of Acanthamoeba keratit...
Coevolution between Contracaecum (Nematoda, Anisakidae) and Austrolebias (Cyprinodontiformes, Rivulidae) host-parasite complex from SW Atlan...
Our results suggest that coevolution in this host-parasite complex species is plausible. Parasite cladogenetic events occur almost simultaneously with the separation of the hypothetical ancestors of each species complex of Austrolebias during Pliocene. Additionally, the two lineages of Contracaecum...
Population identification of Sarcoptes hominis and Sarcoptes canis in China using DNA sequences.
There has been no consistent conclusion on whether Sarcoptes mites parasitizing in humans and animals are the same species. To identify Sarcoptes (S.) hominis and S. canis in China, gDNA was extracted from individual mites (five from patients with scabies and five from dogs with mange) for amplifica...
Third-stage nematode larvae of Contracaecum osculatum from Baltic cod (Gadus morhua) elicit eosinophilic granulomatous reactions when penetr...
Third-stage larvae of the anisakid nematode Contracaecum osculatum were recovered from livers of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) caught in the Baltic Sea (June 2014) and used for experimental infection of two pigs (one male and one female). Each pig received 215 larvae by oral infection (feeding with mi...
Experimental Infection of Mongolian Gerbils with Baylisascaris potosis.
These results indicate that B. potosis larvae migrate through numerous organs and are associated with visceral larva migrans in gerbils, but less frequently migrate to the nervous system in gerbils than does B. transfuga ....
Temperature Governs On-Host Distribution of the Northern Fowl Mite, Ornithonyssus sylviarum (Acari: Macronyssidae).
The northern fowl mite, Ornithonyssus sylviarum (Canestri & Fanzago), is an ectoparasite of more than 70 species of North American wild birds, but it has a particularly significant impact on chickens, where it is a permanent resident of vent feathers. Improved control practices depend on a better un...
In vivo antimalarial evaluation of MAMA decoction on Plasmodium berghei in mice.
The use of decoctions of different plant materials is common practice in antimalarial ethnomedicine in Africa. Scientific evaluation of such herbal combinations to verify the claims is important. The study has evaluated the antimalarial efficacy of MAMA decoction (MD), a multicomponent herbal prepar...
MOLECULAR SURVEY OF APICOMPLEXA IN PODARCIS WALL LIZARDS DETECTS HEPATOZOON, SARCOCYSTIS AND EIMERIA SPECIES.
Abstract The occurrence of Apicomplexan parasites in Podarcis wall lizards from the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic islands was studied by amplification and sequencing of the 18S rRNA gene. Species from three genera, Hepatozoon, Sarcocystis and Eimeria were detected. The phylogeneti...
In memoriam Prof. Dr. Eberhard Schein (22nd November 1940-8th May 2011).
Abnormalities on cephalic hooklets of advanced third-stage larvae from Gnathostoma Owen, 1836 (Nematoda: Gnathostomidae) collected from Mexi...
Morphological abnormalities were observed on the cephalic bulb hooklets of advanced third-stage larvae (AdvL(3)) of genus Gnathostoma. The larvae were obtained from the fish "Mexican rivulus" Millerichthys robustus collected from a seasonal pond near Tlacotalpan, Veracruz, Mexico. The abnormalities...
