Abstract

Background: Heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis) in dogs is considered endemic in Australia, but the clinical heartworm disease caused by the heartworm is rare and prevalence is low. The mainstream prevention of the heartworm is based on macrocyclic lactone (ML) administration. The aim of this study was ...

Abstract

Malaysia is considered a hyperendemic area for canine heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis) due to its favorable climate for the completion of the parasite life cycle. This study provides an updated prevalence data on D. immitis in owned dogs from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and compares the trends of D. ...

Abstract

Dirofilaria immitis and Dirofilaria repens, mosquito-borne helminthes (Nematoda: Filarioidea), are the causative agents of cardiopulmonary (known also as heartworm disease) and subcutaneous dirofilariosis, respectively. Canids are the predominant definitive hosts; however, other mammalian species,...

Abstract

Background: Dirofilaria immitis, D. repens and Acanthocheilonema reconditum are the main causative agents of zoonotic canine filariosis. Methods: We developed a combined multiplex approach for filaria and Wolbachia detection using the 28S-based pan-filarial and 16S-based pan-Wolbachia qPCRs,...
