  • Caenurosis and Coenuriasis, gid or sturdy in the vernacular) is a parasitic infection that develops in the intermediate hosts of some tapeworm species (Taenia multiceps, T. serialis, T. brauni, or T. glomerata) and are caused by the coenurus, the larval stage of these worms. (wikipedia.org)
  • Adult worms of these species develop in the small intesine of the definitive hosts (dogs, foxes, and other canids), causing a disease from the group of taeniasis. (wikipedia.org)
  • giardiasis
  • According to the CDC, "Those at greatest risk are travelers to countries where giardiasis is common, people in child care settings, those who are in close contact with someone who has the disease, people who swallow contaminated drinking water, backpackers or campers who drink untreated water from lakes or rivers, people who have contact with animals who have the disease, and men who have sex with men. (wikipedia.org)
  • naturally
  • Naturally, the D. canis mite has a commensal relationship with the dog and therefore under normal conditions does not produce any clinical signs or disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Transmission
  • Papers should advance the scientific knowledge of the sources, transmission, prevention, and control of zoonotic parasitic diseases in animals and/or vectors. (hindawi.com)
  • Transmission of zoonotic diseases from animals is primarily by direct contact, fecal-oral contact, indirect contact with invertebrate vectors and contaminated inanimate objects, or inhalation of aerosolized materials. (umt.edu)
  • Transmission of zoonotic diseases can be prevented through a variety of means, including use of protective clothing, prevention of bites and scratches, proper sharps handling procedure, medical surveillance and vaccination programs, and post-injury treatment. (umt.edu)
  • This paper answers a very important question regarding the potential role of non-primate vertebrates in the transmission cycle of Zika virus," says Stephen Higgs, PhD, Editor-in-Chief of Vector-Borne and Zoonotic Diseases , and Director, Biosecurity Research Institute, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS. (eurekalert.org)
  • The transmission of zoonotic agents could be through indirect contact with animal secretions and excretions, infected water and food, fecal samples and through direct contact with the animals. (alliedacademies.org)
  • Appropriate education, management and anthelmintic regimes can minimize the parasitic transmission. (alliedacademies.org)
  • Hence, coverage is made up of past epidemics, from rates and patterns of disease transmission, duration of pandemics, timing of epidemiological peaks, geographic distribution of diseases, and government preparedness and quarantine provisions. (wikipedia.org)
