Journal Article
TL;DR: In vitro culture of Echinococcus granulosus and E. multilocularis differentiated largely into unsegmented, sexually mature, "monozoic" forms; some organisms developed "pseudo-proglottids" with the inter Proglottid membrane absent or poorly formed.
Abstract: The techniques for the in vitro culture of Echinococcus granulosus and E. multilocularis are described in detail. The sheep strain of E. granulosus was grown to sexual maturity but fertile eggs were not produced due to the failure to achieve insemination in vitro. The horse strain of E. granulosus grew only slightly in vitro and then ceases to develop, although remaining active for long periods. E. multiloculoris differentiated largely into unsegmented, sexually mature, "monozoic" forms; some organisms developed "pseudo-proglottids" with the interproglottid membrane absent or poorly formed. After prolonged culture, some strobila of E. multilocularis developed an extra scolex.

Journal Article
TL;DR: The percentage incidence of parasites in the delta mangrove zone subject to heavy flooding and excess run-offs during the rainy season and the age groups in the first two decades of life had 61.7% infection and this stabilised to a low level of 2.8% in the eighth and ninth decades.
Abstract: Faecal samples from 862 male and female donors of nine age groups (1-90 years) in three geographical zones were screened by the examination of concentrates from formal other concentration technique. The overall percentage incidence of six parasites which were encountered were as follows: Entamoeba coli (19.7%), E. histolytica (3.9%), Giradia lamblia (1.4%), hookworm (29.4%), Ascaris lumbricoides (38.2%) and Trichuris trichiura (7.3%). However, the percentage incidence of parasites in the delta mangrove zone subject to heavy flooding and excess run-offs during the rainy season, were as follows: E. coli (44.7%), E. histolytica (0%), G. lamblia (37.5%), hookworm (44.9%), A. lumbricoides (51.0%) and T. trichiura (77.6%). Except for E. histolytica and G. lamblia, the percentage incidence in the delta zone were comparatively higher than values observed in the better drained middle rainforest and savanna zones. The age groups in the first two decades of life had 61.7% infection and this stabilised to a low level of 2.8% in the eighth and ninth decades. Males and higher protozoan and helminthic infections than females.

Journal Article
TL;DR: The lesions observed in the foxes seemed to be less severe and mainly confined to the ventral parts of the lung lobes which showed granulomatous pneumonia, which is believed to represent an important reservoir of A. vasorum.
Abstract: 199 out of 509 foxes culled in a rabies control scheme, were shown to be infected with the metastrongylid parasite Angiostrongylus vasorum. Pathological lesions associated with angiostrongylosis in the fox are described and compared to reported lesions of A. vasorum infection in the dog. The lesions observed in the foxes seemed to be less severe and mainly confined to the ventral parts of the lung lobes which showed granulomatous pneumonia. Right ventricular hypertrophy of the heart was present in all infected foxes. It is believed that the fox population represents an important reservoir of A. vasorum.

Journal Article
TL;DR: With reference to a recent taxonomic revision the species of the echinostomes used in key studies on the population regulation in infections with 37-collar-spined Echinostoma species in experimental rodent hosts were reconsidered.
Abstract: With reference to a recent taxonomic revision the species of the echinostomes used in key studies on the population regulation in infections with 37-collar-spined Echinostoma species in experimental rodent hosts were reconsidered. This was considered essential to prevent taxonomic problems blocking further fruitful progress within this field of experimental parasitology.

Journal Article
TL;DR: Modification of Monogenoidea class system is suggested with due regard for new data and purely cladistic formalization and erroneous interpretation of generally accepted morphological notions will lead to incorrect conclusions.
Abstract: Existing schemes of monogenean classification are examined Modification of Monogenoidea class system is suggested with due regard for new data Monogeneans are classified in 53 families from subclasses Polyonchoinea (4 supraorders, 6 orders and 19 families); Polystomationea (1 order, 2 families) and Oligonchoinea (2 supraorders, 3 orders and 32 families) Substantiation of taxonomical changes and comments on high level taxa structure are given Cladistic views on flatworms classification are critically analyzed The results obtained in this way are not entirely new; purely cladistic formalization and erroneous interpretation of generally accepted morphological notions will lead to incorrect conclusions
