[inquiry of veterinarians in niedersachsen concerning the occurrence of parasitic diseases and their control in small animals].a questionnaire was sent to all veterinarians in lower saxony (approximately 3500). the regular occurrence of parasitic infections in small animals, problems with particular parasites, the routine application of diagnostic and therapeutic measures, and the significance of echinococcus multilocularis were asked for. due to the disappointing low number of filled-in questionnaires sent back by the practitioners (n = 68) a statistical analysis of the data was not applicable. nevertheless, certain tr ...19957600942
[helminth fauna of the red fox (vulpes vulpes linne 1758) in south sachsen-anhalt--1: cestodes].between january 1993 and november 1994 a total of 1300 red foxes from the administrative districts halle and dessau were examined for the presence of echinococcus multilocularis and other cestodes. echinococcus multilocularis-infections were detected in only 4 of 1300 (0.3%) foxes. furthermore the following cestodes were found: mesocestoides spp. (54.1%), taenia crassiceps (17.7%), taenia polyacantha (11.9%), hydatigera taeniaeformis (0.2%), taenia serialis (0.15%), taenia pisiformis (0.15%), no ...19979445786
[prevalence of echinococcus multilocularis and other metacestodes and cestodes in the muskrat (ondatra zibethicus link 1795) in lower saxony].aim of the study was to examine the prevalence and regional distribution of echinococcus multilocularis and other metacestodes and cestodes in muskrats in lower saxony, germany. a total of 991 muskrats with similar numbers from all districts of the country were examined between january and december 1995. e. multilocularis metacestodes were found in 4.1% of the muskrats in the liver and other organs of the abdominal cavity. the majority of the e. multilocularis positive animals came from the sout ...19979445787
[increase in the prevalence of echinococcus multilocularis infection in red foxes in lower saxony].echinococcus multilocularis is a tapeworm having carnivores as final hosts, the red fox in particular, dog and cat less frequent. its two host life cycle consists of a larval cycle which predominantly takes place in the liver of rodents such as mice but it can also develop in musk rats as intermediate hosts. man can also be infected and serves as a wrong intermediate host. he develops an alveolar echinococcosis which usually ends lethal without medical treatment. the prevalence of e. multilocula ...200111417378
choropleth mapping of regional count data of echinococcus multilocularis among red foxes in lower saxony, germany.in this paper, choropleth maps display the geographical distribution of echinococcus multilocularis in red foxes in lower saxony. areas of high prevalence of the infection in foxes and with high fox population density pose high risk for the human population for alveolar echinococcosis. spatial statistical methods were used to analyse regional count data obtained from 5365 hunted or found-dead foxes. spatial smoothing (of raw estimates of regional prevalences based on count data before mapping) w ...200111679170
[the occurrence of echinococcus multilocularis in red foxes in lower saxony: identification of a high risk area by spatial epidemiological cluster analysis].there is considerable interest in the spatial distribution of echinococcus multilocularis in red foxes (vulpes vulpes l.), because this parasite causes the zoonoses of alveolar echinococcosis which is potentially of high fatality rate. high risk areas are known from france, switzerland and the swabian alb in germany for a long time. in this work, the spatial scan statistic is introduced as an instrument for identification and localisation of high risk areas, so called disease clusters in spatial ...200212481649
[echinococcus multilocularis in red foxes in saxony-anhalt: identification of areas of increased risk of infestation and association of the infestation probability with the average annual maximum temperature].between 1998 and 2004 1341 red foxes from 611 locations were examined parasitologically for echinococcus multilocularis at the state office of consumer protection saxony-anhalt. examination was carried out in parallel to rabies monitoring. a period-prevalence of 9.2% of infestation was found. employing a scan statistic a large area in the southwest of the federal state and two smaller areas of increased risk with respect to infestation with echinococcus multilocularis were identified. the hypoth ...200516206929
emergence of echinococcus multilocularis among red foxes in northern germany, 1991--2005.the parasite echinococcus multilocularis is currently of great concern in europe because of its spreading behavior, which has public health implications. this study investigates the spatiotemporal distribution of echinococcus multilocularis in red foxes. the infection status of 8459 foxes was sampled from 43 regions in the north german province of lower saxony over three investigation periods 1991--1994, 1994--1997 and 2003--2005. linear empirical bayesian smoothing within the binomial model was ...200818583056
[spatiotemporal analysis of the infection of the red fox (vulpes vulpes l.) with echinococcus multilocularis in saxony-anhalt].a total of 2757 red foxes from 952 locations were examined parasitologically for echinococcus multilocularis between the years 1998 and 2007 at the state office of consumer protection saxony-anhalt. this examination was carried out in parallel to rabies monitoring. a period-prevalence of 17.4% of infection was found. employing different cluster tests spatial as well as spatiotemporal clusters were detected. spatial clusters remained largely stable throughout the complete time interval and were s ...200919350806
on the move? echinococcus multilocularis in red foxes of saxony-anhalt (germany).echinococcus multilocularis is a cestode parasites that frequently occurs in the red fox (vulpes vulpes), which is the main definitive host in central europe. the parasite may infect humans as accidental intermediate hosts and cause alveolar echinococcosis. in the german federal state of saxony-anhalt, the occurrence of e. multilocularis in red foxes as a possible source of infection for humans was studied from 1998 to 2010. a significant shift in the geographical centroid of the occurrence of e ...201423134586
