Rainbow trout leucocyte activity: influence on the ectoparasitic monogenean Gyrodactylus derjavini. (1/92)

The ectoparasitic monogenean Gyrodactylus derjavini from rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss was exposed in vitro to macrophages isolated as peritoneal exudate cells or as pronephros cells from the host. Cells colonized the parasite especially in the mannose-rich regions in the cephalic ducts where ciliated structures were abundant. Opsonization with fresh serum, in contrast to heat-inactivated serum, enhanced colonization also on other body parts. The adverse effect of the activated macrophages towards G. derjavini was associated with a heat-labile component released from these cells to the culture medium. Analysis of substances released from the cells showed reactivity for a number of enzymes, complement factor C3, interleukin (Il-1) and reactive oxygen metabolites. Chemotaxis assays with pronephric leucocytes showed chemoattractants in G. derjavini, and the respiratory burst level of macrophages was slightly elevated due to parasite exposure. It is suggested that skin leucocytes contribute to an increased level of complement factors in the trout skin during the host response, whereby a hostile microenvironment for the parasites is created. In addition, the IL-1 production could affect mucous cell secretion and hyperplasia and add to the antiparasitic action of the epithelium. Likewise, reactive oxygen metabolites and various enzymes are likely to be involved in the skin response.  (+info)

Identification of a novel eosinophil chemotactic cytokine (ECF-L) as a chitinase family protein. (2/92)

A novel eosinophil chemotactic cytokine (ECF-L) was purified from the culture supernatant of splenocytes of mice by a combination of anion-exchange chromatography, Procion red-agarose affinity chromatography, size exclusion high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and reverse phase HPLC. The NH(2)-terminal amino acid sequence was determined by direct protein sequencing. An ECF-L cDNA clone of 1,506 nucleotides was isolated from a cDNA library, and the nucleotide sequence predicted a mature protein of 397 amino acids. A recombinant ECF-L showed a level of eosinophil chemotactic activity comparable with that of natural ECF-L, and the activity was inhibited by a monoclonal antibody to ECF-L. ECF-L also attracted T lymphocytes and bone marrow polymorphonuclear leukocytes in vitro, whereas it caused selective extravasation of eosinophils in vivo. ECF-L mRNA was highly expressed in spleen, bone marrow, lung, and heart. A comprehensive GenBank data base search revealed that ECF-L is a chitinase family protein. ECF-L retains those amino acids highly conserved among chitinase family proteins, but Asp and Glu residues essential for the proton donation in hydrolysis were replaced by Asn and Gln, respectively. Although ECF-L contains a consensus CXC sequence near the NH(2) terminus akin to chemokine family proteins, the rest of ECF-L shows poor homology with chemokines.  (+info)

Occurrence of Bothriocephalus acheilognathi in cyprinid fish from three lakes in the flood plain of the Yangtze River, China. (3/92)

Cyprinid fish, Hemiculter leucisculus, Cultrichthys erythropterus and Culter dabryi, were sampled from Liangzi, Honghu and Tangxun lakes in the flood plain of the Yangtze River. The cestode Bothriocephalus acheilognathi Yamaguti, 1934 was found in the 3 lakes, but C. erythropterus sampled from Liangzi lake was found uninfected due probably to the small sample size. Findings of the cestode in the 3 lakes represent the first record of the parasite in the flood plain of the Yangtze River, indicating that B. acheilognathi may be distributed much wider in China than previously recognized.  (+info)

First report of the invasive eel pest Pseudodactylogyrus bini in North America and in wild American eels. (4/92)

We detected 2 species of monogenean gill worms, Pseudodactylogyrus bini (Kikuchi, 1929) Gusev, 1965 and P. anguillae (Yin & Sproston, 1948) Gusev, 1965 (Monopisthocotylea: Pseudodactylogyridae), on American eel Anguilla rostrata in 2 rivers in South Carolina, USA. One of these, P. anguillae, was reported 5 yr ago from Nova Scotia; as well as in South Carolina, we also discovered it in 2 localities in Chesapeake Bay. Differences in the morphologies of specimens of either species of worm from North America and northeastern Asia were negligible. Similarly, the level of variation in sequences in the ITS2 (internal transcribed spacers) region of ribosomal RNA was minor, and not consistent with geographical origin. These data indicate that these monogeneans invaded North America only recently, possibly in parallel with the nematode Anguillicola crassus (which is known to have been introduced with commercial imports of foreign eels). We map the current global occurrence of these monogeneans, and conclude that their dispersal from northeastern Asia was largely as a result of the eel trade, and has probably been secondarily augmented by longshore migration of infected eels, and possibly also by transport in ballast waters. With present technology, all eel stocks must still be collected from the wild; unless shipments are disinfected at quarantine, these and other eel pathogens (such as A. crassus) are likely to continue to colonise other regions of the world.  (+info)

Treatment of Microcotyle sebastis infestation in cultured rockfish Sebastes schlegeli by oral administration of praziquantel in combination with cimetidine. (5/92)

The effect of cimetidine on the treatment efficacy of praziquantel against Microcotyle sebastis infestation in cultured rockfish Sebastes schlegeli was investigated. Juvenile rockfish were divided into 7 groups, and orally administered praziquantel alone (50, 100 and 200 mg kg(-1) body wt, BW) or in combination with cimetidine at a dose of 200 mg kg(-1) BW for each praziquantel dose. The fish in the control group were administered only saline. The results clearly showed that coadministration of cimetidine with praziquantel led to a significantly increased treatment efficacy of the latter drug, and consequently would lead to a lowering of the total dose of praziquantel, and a reduction in the administration times and costs for the treatment of M. sebastis infestation in cultured rockfish.  (+info)

Effects of Schistocephalus solidus infection on brain monoaminergic activity in female three-spined sticklebacks Gasterosteus aculeatus. (6/92)

The three-spined stickleback Gasterosteus aculeatus is an intermediate host of the tapeworm Schistocephalus solidus. Changes in predator avoidance, foraging and shoaling behaviour have been reported in sticklebacks infested with S. solidus, but the mechanisms underlying parasite-induced behavioural changes are not understood. Monoamine neurotransmitters are involved in the control of behaviour and central monoaminergic systems are sensitive to various stressors. Thus, the behavioural effects of S. solidus infestation might be a reflection of changes in brain monoaminergic activity in the stickleback host. The concentrations of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), dopamine (DA), norepinephrine (NE) and their metabolites 5-hydroxy-indoleacetic acid (5-HIAA), homovanilic acid (HVA) and 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycol (MHPG) were measured in the telencephalons, hypothalami and brainstems of parasitized and non-parasitized female sticklebacks held in the laboratory. The ratios of 5-HIAA:5-HT were significantly elevated in both the hypothalami and brainstems of infected sticklebacks. The concentrations of 5-HT and NE were significantly reduced in the telencephalons of infected fish as compared with controls, but there was no elevation of metabolite concentrations. The results are consistent with chronic stress in infected fish, but may also reflect other alterations of neuroendocrine status resulting from parasite infection.  (+info)

Common sculpin Cottus gobio as a natural paratenic host of Proteocephalus longicollis (Cestoda: Proteocephalidae), a parasite of salmonids, in Europe. (7/92)

Common sculpins Cottus gobio L. (Pisces: Cottidae), from the Mlynsky Brook near Ceske Zleby in the Sumava National Park, southwestern Bohemia, Czech Republic, were found to harbour in their intestines juvenile cestodes Proteocephalus longicollis (Zeder, 1800), a common parasite of holarctic salmonids, with a prevalence of 60% and intensity of 1 to 11 (mean 5) parasites per fish; undoubtedly, these prey fish serve as paratenic hosts. In this locality, the definitive host of P. longicollis is the brown trout Salmo trutta m. fario L., large specimens of which apparently acquire infection of this parasite by feeding on infected sculpins. C. gobio is the first known natural paratenic host of P. longicollis in Europe.  (+info)

Indirect fitness consequences of mate choice in sticklebacks: offspring of brighter males grow slowly but resist parasitic infections. (8/92)

'Good genes' models of sexual selection suggest that elaborate male sexual ornaments have evolved as reliable signals of male quality because only males of high genetic viability are able to develop and maintain them. Females benefit from choosing such individuals if quality is heritable. A key prediction is that the offspring of males with elaborate mating displays will perform better than those of less elaborate males, but it has proved difficult to demonstrate such an effect independently of the effects of differences in parental investment. We tested for 'good genes' linked to male ornamentation in the three-spined stickleback Gasterosteus aculeatus using in vitro fertilization to generate maternal half-siblings, which were raised without parental care. Maternal half-siblings sired by brightly coloured males grew less quickly than half-siblings sired by dull males but were more resistant to a controlled disease challenge. Among the offspring that became infected, those with brighter fathers had higher white blood cell counts. This suggests that highly ornamented males confer disease resistance on their offspring. The association with reduced growth suggests a mechanism for the maintenance of heritable variation in both disease resistance and male sexual coloration.  (+info)

The ribbon-shaped tapeworm attaches to the intestinal mucosa by means of sucking cups or hooks located on the scolex. Behind the scolex is a short, narrow neck from which proglottids (segments) form. As each proglottid matures, it is displaced further back from the neck by the formation of new, less mature segments. The progressively elongating chain of attached proglottids, called the strobila, constitutes the bulk of the tapeworm. The length varies among species. In some, the tapeworm may consist of more than 1000 proglottids and may be several meters long. The mature proglottids are hermaphroditic and produce eggs, which are subsequently released. Because eggs of the different Taenia species are morphologically identical, differences in the morphology of the scolex or proglottids provide the basis for diagnostic identification to the species level. ...
Careful attention is needed both to prevent tapeworm infections and to ensure prompt, effective treatment when infections do occur.
You cannot get tapeworms directly from your dog. Dipylidium caninum, the most common tapeworm of the dog, depends on the flea as the intermediate host. A person must swallow an infected flea to become infected. A few cases of tapeworm infection have been reported in children. Vigorous flea control will also eliminate any risk of children becoming infected.. Although Dipylidium species are the most common tapeworms in dogs, other cestodes are also important in certain areas.. Taenia species - These are tapeworms that are acquired by eating prey or waste containing the infective larval stage. These are much larger tapeworms, often up to one yard (one meter) in length. Intermediate hosts include rodents, rabbits, hares and sheep. The intermediate stages develop hydatid cysts in various organs in the intermediate host. There are effective medications that will eliminate Taenia infections in dogs. If your dog eats prey such as rodents or rabbits, re-infection can occur with passage of tapeworm ...
Although the life cycles of Bertiella species are not completely understood, it is generally believed the genus undergoes a two-host life cycle, with an arthropod intermediate host (usually a mite) and a vertebrate definitive host (usually non-human primates for the species implicated in human infection). The two species usually implicated in human infection are B. studeri and B. mucronata. Bertiella studeri, which is an Old World species, usually infects monkeys in the genera Anthropopithecus, Cercopithecus, Cynomologus and Macaca; B. mucronata, a New World species, usually infects monkeys in the genera Callicebus and Alouatta. Higher primates, such as chimpanzees (Pan) have also been infected, often in zoo or pet settings. Eggs and proglottids are passed in the feces of the definitive host ...
Fall Tapeworm Control Can Help Set Horses Up for a Healthy New Year. Fall parasite control can help break parasite life cycle. DULUTH, GA. July 29, 2009 As the fall and winter seasons approach and lush, green pastures turn brown, horse owners may think their horses risk of tapeworm infection decreases. But veterinarians say thats not the case.. "Even though pastures usually begin to die off as the weather gets cooler, grazing horses can still encounter the oribatid mites that transmit tapeworms," says Hoyt Cheramie, DVM, MS, manager, Merial Veterinary Services. Because it takes tapeworms two to four months to mature inside the horse,1 animals infected during the fall season can carry the infection into the following year "continuing the life cycle of the parasite.". It is important to include tapeworm control in any parasite control program as some research suggests that tapeworms, specifically Anoplocephala perfoliata, are associated with up to 80 percent of ileal impaction colic cases.2 ...
In order to get tapeworms, an intermediate host, the flea or certain species of rodent is required. In other words, your dog cannot get tapeworms directly from another dog or a cat.. Dipylidium caninum, the most common tapeworm of the dog, causes few problems in the adult host but can result in digestive upsets and stunting of growth in puppies. The intermediate host of Dipylidium is the flea.. Taenia species of tapeworms usually infect adult dogs and cause few problems. Puppies are occasionally infected and, depending on the type of worm involved, the large number of worms can cause intestinal blockage. The intermediate host for Taenia species is small mammals such as rodents or rabbits.. Echinococcus, another type of tapeworm, is important because it is zoonotic, meaning humans can be infected. The adult tapeworm is tiny, only about ¼" (5-6 mm) long. Sheep and sometimes man can act as the intermediate hosts in which the immature forms of Echinococcus develop inside hyadatic cysts in various ...

The prevalence of intestinal parasites in domestic cats from the London area was surveyed over an 18-month period by microscopic examination of faecal samples. Of the 947 cats examined 11.5 per cent were infected with Toxocara cati, 1.9 per cent with Isospora felis, 1.2 per cent with Dipylidium caninum, 1.2 per cent with Taenia taeniaeformis, 0.8 per cent with I rivolta and 0.2 per cent with Toxascaris leonina.. ...
This chapter consists of short notes, diagrams, maps, and tables to summarize human cestode (tapeworm) infections, starting with a classification of relevant organisms. The chapter then goes on to cover dwarf tapeworm, fish tapeworm, beef/pork tapeworm, and hydatid disease. For ease of reference, each topic is broken down into sections, including classification, epidemiology, microbiology, pathophysiology, clinical syndromes, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.
If you do not remove the tapeworms from your cats as well as from your dogs periodically, all your animals will be infested with tapeworms.
A list of the most promising targets shows: Many are identical to targets on which cancer treatments take effect. The reason: "A tapeworm infection takes a course much like the growth of a tumour", Brehm explains. "The larvae of the fox tapeworm, for instance, metastasise and proliferate in the whole body." Additionally, their development is controlled by the same genes responsible for the growth of a cancer cell. The larvae are therefore probably susceptible to standard cancer treatments.. Proteins as possible targets. But the researchers uncovered even more weak spots of the parasites. In the course of evolution, tapeworms have lost the ability to synthesise the necessary fats and cholesterol that are crucial for larvae development. Instead, they scavenge from their hosts. They use proteins to bind the necessary fats. By attacking these proteins with certain drugs, researchers hope to "starve" the larvae.. Tests on cell cultures of tapeworms. But are the identified new targets really weak ...

When it comes to C. longicollis infections, fish that hang around near the sea floor or the coast are the most loaded, most likely because they are in close proximity to the whelks which are sources of infection. Furthermore practically all the fish above a certain size (about 14 cm in length) are infected. Fish in those size range have on average 73 C. longicollis larvae in their brain, with one unlucky fish recorded to have 220. Ironically, while these larger fish are the motherlode when it comes to parasites as they have been accumulating parasites for longer, since they live in deeper waters they are out of the gulls reach. So regardless of their heavy larval fluke burden, because gulls cant get to them, all those parasites are at a dead end, destined to die or end up in the stomach of another predator which is not a gull - at least not without human intervention ...
We can be soft targets for these parasites as they can be found anywhere we can think of. These microscopic size organisms can cause huge damage to your body if you do not take good care. They can be found everywhere, in water, air and also in things that we eat. There are more than 100 kinds of parasites which have found their abode in human body. Animals also fall victims to these different kinds of worms.These worms are classified in three categories * Roundworms (Nematodes)* Tapeworms (Cestodes)* Flukeworms (Trematodes)Some of the common symptoms *Diarrhea*Foul Breath*Dark Circles*Feeling hungry regularly*Restlessness while sleeping*Suffering from headaches and abdominal pain*Undernourished *Weak*Suffering from allergies*Constipation, gas and bloated stomachThese worms are the culprits for many of the health problems which we face in our daily lives.

Tapeworm infection can also be caused by eating raw or undercooked meat from an animal that has the larvae of the tapeworm, grouped in cysts (coenuri) in its muscle tissue. Once ingested, the larvae then develop into adult tapeworms in the intestines. Adult tapeworms can measure up to 55 feet (17 m) long and can survive as long as 25 years. Some tapeworms attach themselves to the walls of the intestine, where they cause irritation or mild inflammation, while others may pass through to the stool and exit the body. Unlike other tapeworms, the dwarf tapeworm can complete its entire life cycle - egg to larva to adult tapeworm - in one host. This is the most common tapeworm infection in the world and can be transmitted between humans. Even while being treated for certain tapeworm infections, reinfection can result from ingesting tapeworm eggs shed by the adult worm into the stool, as a result of insufficient personal hygiene.. ...

Coenurosis Also known as: Gid, Staggers, Sturdy, Taenia multiceps Coenurosis is a parasitic disease of the central nervous system. It is fairly uncommon, but seen in certain geographical areas. It is caused by a tapeworm (cestode) called Taenia multiceps (T.
The species was identified as T. multiceps following the amplification of the fragments of 3 genes, which showed very high homology to the reference sequences when blasted against the NCBI database. In detail, the 18S rRNA, cox1, and nad1 genes from the isolate were 2,467 bp, 1,623 bp, and 894 bp in length, and the G+C contents of each gene were 55%, 30%, and 28%, respectively; and the sequences of the fragments of 18S rRNA gene (MK189451), cox1 gene (MK189452) and nad1 gene (MK189454), which provided 99% homology to 18S rRNA gene of China isolate (GQ260089) and Japan isolate (AB731621), and 100% homology to cox1 gene of China isolate (JX535576), 99% homology to China isolate (GQ228818, FJ495086, JX507220/1/3/4/5/6/7/8/9, JX507230/2/3/4/5/7/8/9, JX535567/8/9 and JX535570/1/2/3/5), and 99% homology to nad1 gene of China isolate (GQ228818 and KC794809/10/11). Phylogenetic reconstructions with the published 3 Taenia gene sequences showed that all T. multiceps isolates constituting a branch, and ...

There are certainly some tapeworms that cause disease in humans and animals of economic importance, but the vast majority of them, in terms of overall diversity, dont necessarily cause harm, or harm hasnt been documented," she said.. According to Jensen, the animals that most commonly host tapeworms include birds, sharks, stingrays, shrews and catfish - and their tapeworms tend not to bother them.. "For example, birds dont die because they have tapeworms," she said. "Their tapeworms arent necessarily debilitating. In general, most tapeworms we look at are about a centimeter in total length. If you think about tapeworms that are 30 feet long in larger mammals or humans, those are the exception. The word yuck comes to mind because theyre in the digestive system. But on the other hand, they are truly amazing.". Jensen pointed to several examples of the tapeworms distinctiveness. For instance, most cestodes inhabit multiple host creatures throughout their lifespan.. "They have complex life ...

The tapeworms described in this study were retrieved from a young male elephant that died at the Udawalawe Elephant Transit Home in Sri Lanka. Anoplocephala manubriata has very muscular suckers on its scolex which allows it to keep a firm grip on the host intestinal wall. But this is not so great for the elephant - the suction from the tapeworms suckers essentially end up leaving hickeys on the elephants intestinal mucosa, which is not a particularly healthy place for an elephant to get love bites, especially if they have been left there by a bunch of tapeworms. Indeed, the elephant that was necropsied in this study was found to have multiple lesions and ulcers on the gut lining as a result of these parasitic love bites. This tapeworm seems to be far more common among younger elephants than adults, possibly because older elephants have more developed immune systems, and have build up some kind of resistant towards these parasites ...

Scientifically described as Dipylidium caninum, the cucumber tapeworm gained its common name from the characteristic appearance of the segment-like proglottids that it sheds.
Variations in the infections of the different sexes were recorded (Table 1). More females were infected (prevalence = 51.1%, mean intensity = 21) than males (prevalence = 33.3%, mean intensity = 9) for T. ciliotheca. A similar trend was noted for P. glanduligerus where the females were also more infected (prevalence = 35.6%, mean intensity = 8) than males (prevalence = 17. 8%, mean intensity = 3). However, Students f-tests revealed a lack of significant differences (p values , 0.05) in the prevalence and intensity of infection between sexes for both cestodes.. The effect of host age on parasite dispersion is presented in Table 2. Fish with standard length ranging from 40 cm - 54 cm (, 3 years) had the highest prevalence and mean intensity while those ranging from 10 cm - 24 cm (, 1 year) had the lowest prevalence and mean intensity for both cestodes (Table 2). Differences in prevalence and intensity of infections were statistically significant (Kolmogrov-Smirnov tests, p values , ...

Data are presented on the last 3 years of a 7-year study (1989-1995) on transmission of natural infections of internal parasites in horse foals (n = 27) born in 1993, 1994, and 1995 on the same pasture on a farm in central Kentucky. The foals were in a closed breeding herd of horses. Research on the first 4 years (1989-1992) of the study was published earlier (Lyons et al., 1991, 1994). Thirty-five species of endoparasites were identified, including 24 species of small strongyles. Monthly, seasonal, and host-age transmission patterns were elucidated for the parasites. Comparison of data between the first 4 years and last 3 years of the study indicates similarities, but also differences, including an increase in prevalence and numbers of Thelazia lacrymalis and Anoplocephala perfoliata.
Apparently, the tapeworm came "wiggling out" of his body and moved in his hand.. When rolled out on the floor of lobby of the emergency department, Banh says, the parasitic worm - officially called a helminth - was as long as he is tall: 5 feet, 6 inches. The sushi eater, who was glad that it was a tapeworm that was coming out of himself instead of his intestines, said that he will no longer eat his favorite sashimi after the frightful incident. Another Dr. Jessica Mason tells that the tapeworm can be 40 feet long.. After grilling the man to try to determine where the tapeworm might have come from, the man revealed that he eats raw salmon on most days..

Examination of the horses dung for tapeworm eggs is a common method to determine if the horse has tapeworms. However, as egg production is intermittent, it may be necessary to examine more than one dung sample and even then it is not a reliable method. Treatment of the horse with a tapeworm-effect horse wormer will result in the tapeworms being killed and exiting with the dung, where they will be visible upon examination.. Unexplained weight loss or colic are often associated with tapeworms. Although these symptoms can be caused by a variety of problems, in the event of no other cause being identified, tapeworms may be considered as a potential cause.. ...
These flat, ribbon-like creatures live inside the digestive tracts of vertebrates. The tapeworms that live in humans can get up to sixty feet long. They feed on our food, despite the fact that they have neither a mouth nor a digestive tract. Their bodies are like a kind of inside-out intestine, rippling with finger-like projections that absorb nutrients. Once inside us, tapeworms can live for decades, deftly escaping the notice of the immune system despite their being as long as an anaconda. Some tapeworms have hooks or suckers on their front end ("head" is too generous a term), which they use to anchor themselves in place. They can also swim upstream to meet food coming out of the stomach and drift back down the intestines to feed, releasing chemicals to slow down their hosts peristalsis so that they dont get swept away.. Most of a tapeworms body is taken up with the equipment for making more tapeworms. Except for its anchoring front end, it is made up of repeating segments, each loaded with ...

Tapeworms. Why are they called Tapeworms? What do they look like? Where do they come from? How do you know if your pet has them? Why do they sometimes fail to show up in fecal test? Can people get them? How do we get rid of them? Why do some veterinarians recommend two treatments, and others only recommend one? If one pet has a tapeworm segments, can it be assumed that all do? Why might a pet continue to get tapeworm segments?
The metacestode stage of the tapeworm Mesocestoides vogae (M. vogae) has the ability of asexual growth in the peritoneal cavity of rodents and other intermediate hosts without restriction. Early immunological events have decisive role in the establishment of infection. In the present study we investigated the kinetic of myeloid and lymphoid cell populations and the proportions of cells undergoing apoptosis in peritoneal cavities of mice within the first month after oral infection with M. vogae larvae. Proportions of cell phenotypes and apoptotic cells were examined by flow cytometry and by microscopical analysis of cells following May/Grünwald staining and fluorescent stain Hoechst 33234, respectively. Total numbers of peritoneal cells increased and their distribution changed towards accumulation of myelo-monocytic cell lineage in the account of reduced proportions of lymphoid cells. CD4+ T cell subpopulations were more abundant than CD8+ and their proportions elevated within two weeks post ...
The eggs find their way inside the human body through food and water contaminated with these parasites. Food and water generally gets contaminated with feces of the host. For instance, a pig infected with the said worms passes it onto the soil through its feces. Food grown on that soil and not washed properly or eaten raw may result in the eggs being ingested. Eating pig meat infected with the parasite could also be a source. The eggs once ingested can grow into an adult tapeworm inside the host ...
This discovery shows that the fossil record of vertebrate intestinal parasites is much older than was previously known and occurred at least 270-300 million years ago," according to the study, which was published January 30 in the journal PLoS ONE. (See "Feces, Bite Marks Flesh Out Giant Dino-Eating Crocs."). Coprolites-the tidy scientific term for fossilized feces-are extremely useful in paleontological research because they provide evidence of an organisms diet and behavior and, in this case, of which parasites it may have hosted. (Related: "Fossil Feces Explained."). Those ancient parasites are the forebears of the intestinal invaders that still turn stomachs and haunt digestive tracts today, including cestodes, better known as tapeworms.. Pesky Parasites. While its not unusual to find fossilized parasitic remains, the older the sample material, the less likely it becomes. For instance, such finds from the Mesozoic and Paleozoic periods are exceedingly rare and difficult to document. (See a ...

Author Summary Cestodes are a neglected group of platyhelminth parasites, despite causing chronic infections to humans and domestic animals worldwide. We used Echinococcus granulosus as a model to study the molecular basis of the host-parasite cross-talk during cestode infections. For this purpose, we carried out a survey of the genes expressed by parasite larval stages interfacing with definitive and intermediate hosts. Sequencing from several high quality cDNA libraries provided numerous insights into the expression of genes involved in important aspects of E. granulosus biology, e.g. its metabolism (energy production and antioxidant defences) and the synthesis of key parasite structures (notably, the one exposed to humans and livestock intermediate hosts). Our results also uncovered the existence of an intriguing set of abundant repeat-associated non-protein coding transcripts that may participate in the regulation of gene expression in all surveyed stages. The dataset now generated constitutes a

The present study was undertaken to determine the incidence of helminth parasites in fishes with special reference to water quality parameters in Dal Lake and River Jhelum and correlate the observations. Water, fish, and parasite samples were collected during different seasons from various sites and processed. Three fish species, namely, Schizothorax niger Heckel 1838, Schizothorax esocinus Heckel 1838, and Schizothorax curvifrons Heckel 1838, were recovered from these water bodies. The physicochemical parameters temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH, and free carbon dioxide showed variation vis-à-vis the season and location of the stations in water bodies. Acanthocephalan parasite Pomphorhynchus kashmirensis Kaw 1941 (27.47%) and two intestinal cestodes Bothriocephalus acheilognathi Yamaguti 1934 (30.63%) and Adenoscolex oreini Fotedar 1958 (32.43%) were recovered from all the three species of Schizothorax. All the three parasites showed higher prevalence during summer and the least prevalence ...
These subspecies actually represent three examples from the enormous range of morphological variation present within three-spined sticklebacks. These fall into two rough categories, the anadromous and the freshwater forms.. The anadromous form spends most of its adult life eating plankton and fish in the sea, and returns to freshwater to breed. The adult fish are typically between 6 and 10 cm long, and have 30 to 40 lateral armour plates along their sides. They also have long dorsal and pelvic spines. The anadromous form is morphologically similar all around the Northern Hemisphere, such that anadromous fish from the Baltic, the Atlantic and the Pacific all resemble each other quite closely.. Three-spined stickleback populations are also found in freshwater lakes and streams. These populations were probably formed when anadromous fish started spending their entire lifecycle in fresh water, and thus evolved to live there all year round. Freshwater populations are extremely morphologically ...

In this study, we identified regions of the genome underlying variation in gene expression in a population of threespine stickleback from northern Europe. We used a genotyping-by-sequencing approach to generate an improved linkage map, and applied interval mapping to identify eQTL. Our new map was independent of that recently constructed by Glazer et al. (2015), and the congruent placement of scaffolds between the two maps confirms the reliability of these new genome assemblies. Our map covered a substantially larger distance in centimorgans than those of Roesti et al. (2013) and Glazer et al. (2015), probably due to differences in experimental design. Nevertheless, for our Baltic Sea population, we observe very similar patterns of recombination rate variation across and between chromosomes as found by Roesti et al. (2013) for freshwater sticklebacks from central Europe and Glazer et al. (2015) for marine-freshwater crosses from western North America (Figure S1). Thus, the large-scale pattern of ...

Experiments are often carried out in the laboratory under artificial conditions. Although this can control for confounding factors, it may eliminate important factors that under natural conditions mediate the interaction under investigation. Here, we show that different results can be gained in the field and in the laboratory regarding host-parasite interaction. In the field, courting three-spined stickleback males, Gasterosteus aculeatus, were less often infected with plerocercoids of a cestode tapeworm, Schistocephalus solidus, than shoaling males. However, when a random sample of males was allowed to nest and court females in individual aquaria in the laboratory, both uninfected and infected males built nests and courted females. Moreover, while the few infected males that courted females in the field expressed less red nuptial coloration than uninfected courting males, there was no difference in redness between infected and uninfected males in the laboratory. We argue that the different ...

Fifty-three (85.5%) were cured as judged by a negative, direct fecal smear and ZnSO4 concentrate one week after treatment. Egg counts were much reduced in the remaining positive cases. A 2-day regimen (5 mg per lb daily) cured 37 of 38 (97.4%) Ascaris-infected children. Forty-three patients with hookworm infections were given 5 mg per pound of pyrantel on 3 consecutive days. Cure was achieved in 36 (83.7%) patients. The drug produced only mild side-effects. The chief complaint was low-grade abdominal cramp during the time when the ascarids were being expelled. There were no abnormal changes in the urinalysis, SGOT, or the serum bilirubin levels after single- or triple-dose regimens.
