• This project group investigates the feeding ecology and metazoan parasites of pelagic and benthic deep-sea fish species and the evolution of marin parasitic life by identifying life cycles of the major parasite groups Digenea, Monogenea, Cestoda, Nematoda, Acanthocephala and Crustacea. (bik-f.de)
  • This study demonstrates the effect of only simultaneous infection by B. burgdorferi and B. microti on each pathogen, immune response and on disease manifestations with respect to infection by the spirochete and the parasite. (medworm.com)
  • Features of the worms and the associated histologic changes are compatible with descriptions of the anasakid nematode Hysterothylacium dollfusi, a major parasite of and impediment to the pond-culture of paddlefish.1,5 Although gastric ulceration was not present in the sections evaluated, the severe changes and glandular loss suggest maldigestion and malabsorption, consistent with the poor condition of this fish. (askjpc.org)
  • However, the molecular identification of human cases is still scarce, especially in some European countries where allergic symptoms and hypersensitivity associated with the parasite have been reported ( 2 ). (cdc.gov)
  • We also reported the first molecular confirmation of the parasite Rhadinorhynchus pristis to this species. (springer.com)
  • The Laboratories of the Department involved in the Project proposal will be: the Laboratory of Molecular Ecology and the Laboratory of Parasites Ecology, created in collaboration with the "Sapienza-University of Rome" (URS). (parasite-project.eu)
  • The relevant parasites include protozoa, nematodes, cestodes and trematodes. (elsevier.com)
  • Publication date: Available online 15 July 2019Source: Preventive Veterinary MedicineAuthor(s): Alessia Libera Gazzonis, Sergio Aurelio Zanzani, Luca Villa, Maria Teresa ManfrediAbstractThe zoonotic protozoa Toxoplasma gondii is one of the major abortive pathogens in small ruminants. (medworm.com)
  • Furthermore, no cross-reactivity was found with other parasites such as Toxoplasma gondii, Plasmodium falciparum, Schistosoma japonicum, Clonorchis sinensis, Paragonimus westermani and Anisakis . (biomedcentral.com)
  • There is a growing awareness that these parasites generate potentially life-threatening allergic reactions ( 2 ) when the live parasite attempts to penetrate the gastric mucosa. (cdc.gov)
  • Foodborne illness (also foodborne disease and colloquially referred to as food poisoning) is any illness resulting from the food spoilage of contaminated food, pathogenic bacteria, viruses, or parasites that contaminate food, as well as toxins such as poisonous mushrooms and various species of beans that have not been boiled for at least 10 minutes.

  • Ecology and Marine Biodiversity -ECOBIOMAR research group, CSIC(IIM-E), at IIM-CSIC -web http://iim.csic.es/en/portada - studies the biodiversity, community structure and abiotic and biotic interactions in marine ecosystems, concreted in two main research fields: parasite and marine ecology. (parasite-project.eu)
  • Cormorant pellets are useful to detect both parasite larval stages, and prey items which could act as intermediate hosts in the environment. (sciendo.com)
  • In general, parasites are much smaller than their hosts, show a high degree of specialization for their mode of life and reproduce more quickly and in greater numbers than their hosts. (statemaster.com)
  • Parasites increase their fitness by exploiting hosts for food, habitat and dispersal. (statemaster.com)
  • We investigated the biology and ecology of the Minho River's Allis shad population, considering: spawners age structure and migration behaviour, reproductive biology, hybridization with Twaite shad ( Alosa fallax Lacepède, 1803), juvenile growth, habitats and diet, as well as parasites. (springer.com)
  • Parasites reduce host fitness in many ways, ranging from general or specialized pathology (such as castration), impairment of secondary sex characteristics , to the modification of host behaviour. (statemaster.com)
  • Recent genetic studies have revealed high diversity within these anisakid groups, suggesting additional cryptic species are likely represented in zoonotic infections. (cdc.gov)
  • The current study provides information about the feeding habits of both birds and mammals, and the diversity of parasites circulating in the environment. (sciendo.com)
  • Several allergens from Anisakis simplex are highly resistant to heat and pepsin treatments. (anisakis.com)
  • Six European mouflons ( Ovis musimon ), six fallow deer ( Dama dama ) and six roe deer ( Capreolus capreolus ) were experimentally infected with the resistant strain of the model parasite 8000 L3 Haemonchus contortus . (sciendo.com)
