  • The life cycle of Fasciola gigantica is as follows: eggs (transported with feces) → eggs hatch → miracidium → miracidium infect snail intermediate host → (parthenogenesis in 24 hours) sporocyst → redia → daughter redia → cercaria → (gets outside the snail) → metacercaria → infection of the host → adult stage produces eggs.

  • Infection with Fasciola spp. (wikipedia.org)
  • Furthermore, a replacement in the sequence of amino acid was found in isolates from buffalo at the position of 154, where Serine (S) was transformed into Leucine (L). CONCLOUSION: The findings our study indicate that the variants of goat and buffalo can be responsible for persistence of Fasciola infection in the endemic areas of Iran. (ac.ir)
  • Infection may also occur by drinking contaminated water with floating young fasciola or when using utensils washed with contaminated water. (wikipedia.org)
  • No vaccine is available to protect people against Fasciola infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • humans
  • In this work, they documented the presence of parasitic worms in many animals ranging from fish to domesticated animals and humans. (wikipedia.org)
  • Miracidia
  • In two weeks, eggs become embryonated in water, and after about seven weeks, eggs release tiny parasitic organisms called miracidia, which invade a suitable snail intermediate host. (wikipedia.org)
  • hosts
  • The species of Fasciola can become adapted to new intermediate hosts under certain conditions at least based on laboratory trials. (wikipedia.org)
  • The cysts and eggs of endoparasites may be found in feces which aids in the detection of the parasite in the human host while also providing the means for the parasitic species to exit the current host and enter other hosts. (wikipedia.org)
  • common
  • Lampsilis fasciola, common name the Wavy-rayed Lampmussel, is a species of freshwater mussel, an aquatic bivalve mollusk in the family Unionidae, the river mussels. (wikipedia.org)
