phenotypic analysis of adults of fasciola hepatica, fasciola gigantica and intermediate forms from the endemic region of gilan, iran.fascioliasis is an important human and animal disease caused by fasciola hepatica and fasciola gigantica. in iran, the distribution of these two species overlaps in most areas, including the northern human endemic province of gilan where both fasciolids are simultaneously found in individual cattle and buffaloes. a phenotypic study of fasciolid adult flukes from naturally infected bovines from gilan was carried out by means of an exhaustive morphometric analysis using traditional microscopic mea ...200616901748
distribution of fasciola hepatica and f. gigantica in the endemic area of guilan, iran: relationships between zonal overlap and phenotypic traits.fascioliasis is a zoonotic disease emerging in numerous parts of the world. in any endemic area, the characterisation of scenarios and patterns of infection must always be considered the starting point before implementing any control measure. fascioliasis is a parasitic disease of different epidemiological, pathological and control characteristics depending on the endemic area and the causal agent, fasciola hepatica and fasciolagigantica. classically it has been accepted that f. hepatica is pres ...201525602718
comparison of adult somatic and cysteine proteinase antigens of fasciola gigantica in enzyme linked immunosorbent assay for serodiagnosis of human fasciolosis.fasciolosis caused by fasciola hepatica and fasciola gigantica is one of the major public health problems in the world and in iran. considering that stool examination for fasciola eggs is not a sensitive method and immunodiagnosis methods are more applicable for this purpose, so the present study was conducted to compare the somatic (s) and cysteine proteinase (cp) antigens of f. gigantica in igg-elisa to diagnose human fasciolosis. serum samples obtained from 100 individuals collected during th ...200312943979
diagnosis of human fasciolosis in the gilan province of northern iran: application of cathepsin l-elisa.fasciolosis, or liver fluke disease, caused by parasites of the genus fasciola is emerging as an important disease in man, particularly in countries such as bolivia, peru and egypt. several outbreaks of this disease recently occurred in the gilan province of northern iran and in 1999 alone over 10000 individuals were infected. our laboratory recently developed an enzyme linked immunosorbant assay (elisa) test for diagnosing human fasciolosis in an endemic area of northern bolivia. the assay was ...200212458125
