  • Multiplex PCR for sexing Schistosoma japonicum cercariae and its utility. [Journal Article]
    Parasitol Res 2019Xu J, Li C, … Xia C
  • Accurate discrimination of the Schistosoma japonicum cercariae gender is very important for establishing monosexual infection animal models and for standardizing the real intensity of infection. In this study, a multiplex PCR technique consisting of two pairs of primers, of which one amplifies a 185-bp band specific for the W chromosome and the other amplifies a 420-bp band for the Z chromosome, …

  • Parasitic pneumonia induced by genus Paragonimus involves many species, which affects both humans and animals and it is a food borne zoonotic disease. In this report, we have described the gross and histopathological findings of Paragonimus fluke infection in lungs of tiger. The postmortem examination of sub adult male wild tiger (Panthera tigris tigris) died in captivity was conducted, earlier w…
  • A case of group infections with Paraginimus species in Henan, Central China. [Journal Article]

  • Epidemiology of Trematode Infections: An Update. [Journal Article]
    Adv Exp Med Biol 2019; 1154:359-409Chai JY, Jung BK
  • Digenetic trematodes infecting humans are more than 91 species which belong to 46 genera all over the world. According to their habitat in definitive hosts, they are classified as blood flukes (Schistosoma japonicum. S. mekongi, S. mansoni, S. haematobium, and S. intercalatum), liver flukes (Clonorchis sinensis, Opisthorchis viverrini, O. felineus, Metorchis conjunctus, M. bilis, M. orientalis, F…
  • Paragonimiasis. [Journal Article]
    Adv Exp Med Biol 2019; 1154:105-138Blair D
  • Paragonimiasis is a zoonotic disease caused by lung flukes of the genus Paragonimus. Humans usually become infected by eating freshwater crabs or crayfish containing encysted metacercariae of these worms. However, an alternative route of infection exists: ingestion of raw meat from a mammalian paratenic host. Adult worms normally occur in pairs in cysts in the lungs from which they void their egg…
  • Paragonimus and paragonimiasis in Asia: An update. [Review]
    Acta Trop 2019; 199:105074Yoshida A, Doanh PN, Maruyama H
  • Paragonimiasis, or lung fluke disease, is a typical food-borne parasitic zoonosis caused by infection with trematodes belonging to the genus Paragonimus. More than 50 species of Paragonimus have been reported throughout the world, of which seven valid species infect humans, an estimated one million people annually worldwide. Among the seven species, P. westermani, P. heterotremus, and P. skrjabin…
