Epidemiology of Taenia saginata taeniosis/cysticercosis: a systematic review of the distribution in the Middle East and North Africa

The zoonotic parasite Taenia saginata utilizes bovines as an intermediate host (causing cysticercosis) and humans as the definitive host (causing taeniosis). The public health burden of T. saginata is assumed to ...

Publication date: Available online 16 August 2019Source: International Journal for Parasitology: Parasites and WildlifeAuthor(s): Lana Harriott, Matthew Gentle, Rebecca Traub, Rowland Cobbold, Ricardo Soares MagalhãesAbstractThe transmission of zoonotic pathogens associated with wildlife in peri-urban environments can be influenced by the interplay of numerous socioecological factors. Echinococcus granulosus is known to be common within peri-urban wild dog populations however knowledge of the factors that influence its presence is limited. We investigated the demographic distribution of the Index of Potential Contam...

Cecere, Fernando Spina, Federica MonacoAbstractThe continuous flow of billions of birds between Africa and Europe creates an “ecological bridge” between physically remote areas. Migratory birds fly south from their breeding grounds during late summer/fall and fly back in spring. These movements regulate the spread of internal and ex...

Intensive contact between herdsmen and their livestock, together with the use of pastures without fencing, allows contact between wildlife, domestic animals and humans, thus creating ideal conditions for epizoonos...

AbstractIndigenous Mayangna and Miskitu inhabit Nicaragua ’s remote Bosawás Biosphere Reserve, located in the North Caribbean Coast Autonomous Region. They are sedentary horticulturists who supplement their diet with wild game, hunting with the assistance of dogs. To test whether hunting dogs increased the risk of human exposure to protozoal zoonotic ne glected tropical diseases (NTDs), we sampled dogs from three communities varying in population size and level of contact with other communities. We screened dog feces (n  =  58) forGiardia andCryptosporidium DNA and sera (n  =  78) f...

AbstractSarcocystosis is one of the zoonotic parasitic diseases noticed in different species of animals. The diagnosis is difficult because of the long latency between infection and manifestation of a disease. Fourteen years old buffalo was referred to the hospital with a history of anorexia, diarrhea, cough, and chronic emaciation. Clinical examination revealed mild tympany and enlarged lymph nodes. Ultrasonography of the thorax revealed anechoic structures surrounding the heart along with the hyper echoic structures. Thoracic fluid was collected by the thoracocentesis and microscopic examination of the fluid revealed pre...

Abstract Toxocariasis, a disease caused by infection with larvae of Toxocara canis, T. cati and/or congeners, represents clinical syndromes in humans including visceral and ocular larva migrans, neurotoxocariasis and covert/common toxocariasis. It is reported to be one of the most widespread public health and economically important zoonotic parasitic infections that humans share with dogs, wild canids, including foxes, and possibly other mammals. Humans become infected by accidental ingestion of embryonated Toxocara eggs or larvae from tissues from domestic or wild paratenic hosts. Most infections are asymptomatic...
