Abstract

Schistosomiasis is one of zoonoses (diseases that are naturally transmitted between vertebrate animals and human), and it is widespread in tropical and sub-tropical regions. It is one of the important infectious diseases that the World Health Organization plans to eliminate. Hybridization within...

Abstract

The evolutionary causes and consequences of changes in complex life cycles are of central importance in parasitology. However, data remain limited because in part, knowledge on phylogenetic relationships among species that differ in life cycle patterns remains scarce. We present a molecular...

Abstract

The identification, in the late 2000s, of innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) as a new class of non-B, non-T lymphocytes has led to global efforts to understand their functions, plasticity and evolutionary origins and to define their place within the leucocyte family. Although this work has uncovered...

Abstract

Episodes of expansion and isolation in geographic range over space and time, during which parasites have the opportunity to expand their host range, are linked to the development of host-parasite mosaic assemblages and parasite diversification. In this study, we investigated whether island...

Abstract

A partial sequence of the 18S rRNA gene (1979 bp) of the cestode Nippotaenia mogurndae Yamaguti et Miyata, 1940, a parasite of the Chinese sleeper Perccottus glenii Dybowski, 1877, is obtained. The maximum likelihood (ML) and Bayesian Inference (BI) algorithms are used for phylogenetic analysis...

Abstract

Most research on the effects of parasites on their hosts has focused on the parasites of mammals or birds (especially, domesticated taxa) rather than systems in which the hosts are ectothermic wildlife species. We used experimental methods (antihelminthic drugs) to quantify the effects of lungworms ...

Abstract

Parasites are often hidden in their hosts and exhibit patchy spatial distributions. This makes them relatively difficult to detect and sample. Consequently we have poor knowledge of parasite diversities, distributions, and extinction. We evaluate our general understanding of parasite diversity and...

Abstract

Mammals live and thrive in environments presenting ongoing threats from parasites in the form of biting flies, ticks and intestinal worms and from pathogens as wound contaminants and agents of infectious disease. Several strategies have evolved that enable animals to deal with parasites and...

Abstract

The complex multi-host disease dynamics of schistosomiasis and Schistosoma spp., including the emergence of zoonotic parasite hybrids, remain largely unexplored in West Africa. We elucidated the role of wild small mammals as reservoir for zoonotic Schistosoma species and hybrids in endemic areas of ...

AbstractFull Text

Criteria on the various proposals for the evolution of helminths are compiled and analyzed, many of them under the advanced technology perspective. Adaptation mechanisms are exemplified in some cases of helminths that persist as parasites, such as Fasciola hepatica, Ascaris lumbricoides, Taenia...
