survey for trichinella spp. in red foxes (vulpes vulpes) in belgium.concurrently with a survey for echinococcus multilocularis in the red fox (vulpes vulpes) in flanders, northern belgium, serological and parasitological analyses for trichinella spp. were carried out from 1996 to 1999. muscle samples from foxes in wallonia, southern belgium, were obtained during a survey for rabies and alveolar echinococcosis from 1998 to 2000. in muscle samples from tongue, diaphragm, hindlegs and tail of 179 flemish foxes no larvae were found by trichinoscopy. serum and muscle ...200211751003
prevalence of echinococcus multilocularis in the red fox (vulpes vulpes) in southern belgium.between june 1998 and february 2002, 709 red foxes killed in wallonia (south of belgium) were available for parasitological examination of the gut. the identification of echinococcus multilocularis was based on morphological data. e. multilocularis adults were observed in 20.2% of the animals. the analysis of data revealed marked differences between the geological areas of wallonia; the highest prevalence (33%) was found in the ardenne and the lowest (0%) on the plateau de herve. host gender and ...200314597275
echinococcus multilocularis in belgium: prevalence in red foxes (vulpes vulpes) and in different species of potential intermediate hosts.echinococcus multilocularis causes a rare but potentially lethal zoonotic infection in humans. this tapeworm is known to be endemic in foxes in several countries of western and central europe. in western europe, the common vole (microtus arvalis) and the water vole (arvicola terrestris) are considered to be the most important intermediate host species of this cestode whereas the red fox is by far the most important final host. the purpose of this study was to provide data on the prevalences in w ...200818164551
no emergence of echinococcus multilocularis in foxes in flanders and brussels anno 2007-2008.echinococcus multilocularis is highly endemic in red foxes in southern belgium (region of wallonia), especially in the higher located forested areas. the north of belgium, including the regions of flanders and brussels, is more urbanized and has been colonized entirely by red foxes since the 1980s. a temperospatial analysis of compiled epidemiological data from 1996 to 2003 predicted a northwest spread of the cestode from wallonia and the netherlands towards flanders and brussels (prev. vet. med ...201020163572
