  1. Why museums matter: a tale of pinworms (Oxyuroidea: Heteroxynematidae) among pikas (Ochotona princeps and O. collaris) in the American west.

    Journal of Parasitology 95(2):490 (2009) PMID 19593896

    Permanent and well-supported museum or natural history collections provide a solid foundation for the process of systematics research through creation of an empirical record which validates our understanding of the biosphere. We explore the role of museums in ongoing studies of the complex helmi...
  2. First isolation of Besnoitia besnoiti from a chronically infected cow in Spain.

    Journal of Parasitology 95(2):474 (2009) PMID 18803440

    Besnoitia besnoiti was isolated from a skin biopsy of a chronically infected cow from central Spain. Zoites released from macroscopic cysts were adapted to its culture in vitro on a MARC-145 cell monolayer. Tachyzoites produced in vitro were either cryopreserved or used for genomic DNA isolation...
  3. A new species of camallanidae from Ageneiosus ucayalensis (Pisces: Siluriformes) from Pará State, Brazil.

    Journal of Parasitology 95(2):407 (2009) PMID 18823151

    Procamallanus (Spirocamallanus) belenensis n. sp. is described using light and scanning electron microcopy, based on specimens taken from Ageneiosus ucayalensis, Castelnau, 1855 (Pisces: Siluriforme), a freshwater fish commonly called mandubé, in Pard State, Brazil; Procamallanus (Spirocamallanu...
  4. Redescription of Proteocephalus glanduligerus (Cestoda: Proteocephalidea), a parasite of clariid catfishes in Africa with a unique glandular apical organ.

    Journal of Parasitology 95(2):443 (2009) PMID 18788883

    The tapeworm Proteocephalus glanduligerus (Janicki, 1928) Fuhrmann, 1933 (Cestoda: Proteocephalidea), a parasite of clariid catfishes (Clarias spp.) in Africa, is redescribed on the basis of an evaluation of voucher material and newly collected specimens from Clarias gariepinus and C. cf. anguil...
  5. Usefulness of community participation for the fine temporal monitoring of house infestation by non-domiciliated triatomines.

    Journal of Parasitology 95(2):469 (2009) PMID 18788882

    The irregular presence and low abundance of wild triatomines inside domiciles make their detection more difficult than that of domiciled species, so that vector surveillance and evaluation of Chagas disease transmission risk are more challenging. We compared timed manual searches, considered as ...
  6. A new species of Capillostrongyloides (Nematoda: Capillariidae) parasitizing the horsefish, Congiopodus peruvianus (Pisces: Congiopodidae), from Argentina.

    Journal of Parasitology 95(2):388 (2009) PMID 18844433

    A new species of parasitic nematode, Capillostrongyloides congiopodi n. sp. (Capillariidae), is described based on specimens collected from the gall bladder of the horsefish, Congiopodus peruvianus Cuvier and Velenciennes (Congiopodidae, Scorpaeniformes), from the Patagonian Shelf, Argentina (45...
  7. Small estuarine fishes feed on large trematode cercariae: lab and field investigations.

    Journal of Parasitology 95(2):477 (2009) PMID 18763852

    In aquatic ecosystems, dense populations of snails can shed millions of digenean trematode cercariae every day. These short-lived, free-living larvae are rich in energy and present a potential resource for consumers. We investigated whether estuarine fishes eat cercariae shed by trematodes of th...
  8. Redescription of Ingliseria cirrohamata (Linstow, 1888) (Nematoda: Acuariidae), including new hosts and geographical records.

    Journal of Parasitology 95(2):396 (2009) PMID 18767910

    Inglisera cirrohamata (Linstow, 1888) (Nematoda: Acuariidae) is redescribed based on specimens collected from the type host, Phalacrocorax verrucosus (Aves: Phalacrocoracidae), and the type locality, Kerguelen Island, in the southern Indian Ocean. Three new hosts and 2 new localities were record...
  9. Positive correlation between hemosporidian parasitemia and likelihood of PCR detection in co-infected birds.

    Journal of Parasitology 95(2):472 (2009) PMID 19132810

    As shown previously, the nested PCR method of detection of avian blood parasites, commonly referred to as Waldenström's method, sometimes amplifies only 1 parasite species of the several that may be present in the same bird, and not always the one with the highest parasitemia. This result raises...
  10. Agglutination of Trypanosoma cruzi in infected cells treated with serum from chronically infected mice.

    Journal of Parasitology 95(2):337 (2009) PMID 18922039

    The protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi is the causative agent of Chagas disease. The chronic stage of infection is characterized by a production of neutralizing antibodies in the vertebrate host. A polyclonal antibody, anti-egressin, has been found to inhibit egress of parasites from the host ...
