  • host's
  • These apply to parasites whose hosts are plants as well as animals: Parasitic castrators feed on their host's reproductive tissues, leaving other bodily processes largely intact, and therefore ensuring the host's survival and the freedom of the parasite to remain in the host body for as long as the host continues to live. (wikipedia.org)
  • Laboratory

  • Other tests may be required, depending on the parasite and disease. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Research aspects include the collection and study of different parasite populations, analysis of the immune responses of the host, a correlation between parasite burden in the host and disease. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • These painless nodules present in the skin or subcutaneous tissue are a sign of infection and are used to diagnose a host with the parasite. (wikipedia.org)
  • Includes factsheets on the flagellate protozoan parasite and the disease it causes, news releases, and reports. (dmoztools.net)
  • Sarcosporidiosis (Sarcocystis infection) is caused by an intracellular protozoan parasite that predominantly affects animals. (dmoztools.net)
  • When this animal is eaten by a predator, the parasite survives the digestion process and matures into an adult. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • Often, parasitic infections do not cause illness. (clinicaltrials.gov)

  • Human parasites are divided into endoparasites, which cause infection inside the body, and ectoparasites, which cause infection superficially within the skin. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cats and other animals often can carry MRSA without being sick, but MRSA can cause a variety of infections, including of the skin, respiratory tract, and urinary tract of people. (wikipedia.org)

  • Immature
  • T. gondii causes disease in those who have immature immune systems, particularly those infected in utero. (redorbit.com)

  • worm
  • This disease is caused by the Guinea worm and is characterized by the female worm emerging from the leg. (wikipedia.org)

  • The medieval Persian doctor Avicenna records the presence of several parasites in animals and in his patients including Guinea worm, threadworms, tapeworms, and the Ascaris worm. (wikipedia.org)
