AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of findings compatible with hydatidosis and fertility of hydatid cysts in bovines of a slaughterhouse in Curicó, Chile. Lungs, livers, hearts, spleens and kidneys of 218 animals slaughtered in April 2017 were analyzed. The prevalence of findings ...

Abstract

Cystic echinococcosis (CE), a parasitic disease caused by the cestode Echinococcus granulosus sensu lato (s. l.), is a worldwide zoonotic infection. Although endemic in Chile, information on the molecular characteristics of CE in livestock remains scarce. Therefore we aimed to describe the status...

Abstract

For a deeper understanding of the phylogenetic relationships of Echinococcus genotypes and species in different intermediate hosts, we analyzed samples from human and bovine hydatid cysts. For this, segments of the cytochrome oxidase (COX1) and NADH dehydrogenase (ND1) mitochondrial genes were...

Abstract

Echinococcus granulosus, the agent of hydatid disease, presents an indirect life cycle, with canines (mainly dogs) as definitive hosts, and herbivores and human as intermediary ones. In intermediary hosts fertile and infertile cysts develop, but only the first ones develop protoscoleces, the...
