[intermediate hosts of echinococcus multilocularis in northeastern france. description of lesions found in 3 naturally infested rodent species].the authors describe lesions of echinococcus multilocularis larvae found in one of 476 clethrionomys glareolus and one of 16 arvicola terrestris examined from lorraine and in four microtus arvalis from jura. the receptivity of each of these host-species is discussed.19863524402
[a new natural intermediate host of echinococcus multilocularis in france: the muskrat (ondatra zibethicus l.)].the musk rat is a natural intermediate host of echinococcus multilocularis in the territoire de belfort (east france). its role in a selvatic cycle is discussed. when hunted, it can transmit the parasite to man, through dog infection.19863545032
seroepidemiologic screening of echinococcus multilocularis infection in a european area endemic for alveolar echinococcosis.in a serologic survey for echinococcus multilocularis infection, we screened sera from 7,884 subjects from the doubs departement in france, an area endemic for alveolar echinococcosis (ae) of the liver. an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa) with a highly species-specific antigen (em2) and an e. multilocularis crude antigen (emc) was used for screening. an evaluation of the cost/benefit relationship of this screening, followed by therapeutic management of patients, was made and compared wi ...19947810820
echinococcus multilocularis in domestic cats in france. a potential risk factor for alveolar hydatid disease contamination in humans.in france, in north of alps and south of jura, around the swiss town of geneva, the cestode e. multilocularis was found in three out of 81 domestic cats necropsied given by veterinarians. morphological and morphometric features established the identity of this species. in an endemic area of alveolar hydatid disease, the prevalence of e. multilocularis in the domestic cat confirms that it is a risk factor for human beings and mainly for veterinarians.200010622606
interactions between landscape changes and host communities can regulate echinococcus multilocularis transmission.an area close to the qinghai-tibet plateau region and subject to intensive deforestation contains a large focus of human alveolar echinococcosis while sporadic human cases occur in the doubs region of eastern france. the current review analyses and compares epidemiological and ecological results obtained in both regions. analysis of rodent species assemblages within quantified rural landscapes in central china and eastern france shows a significant association between host species for the pathog ...200315027609
detection of echinococcus multilocularis in wild boars in france using pcr techniques against larval form.recently, new data have been collected on the distribution and ecology of echinococcus multilocularis in european countries. different ungulates species such as pig, goat, sheep, cattle and horse are known to host incomplete development of larval e. multilocularis. we report a case of e. multilocularis portage in two wild boars from a high endemic area in france (department of jura). histological examination was performed and the dna was isolated from hepatic lesions then amplified by using thre ...200515845281
[towards a strategy for the epidemiological study of alveolar echinococcosis. apropos of cases of infestation seen in microtus arvalis p. in the doubs (france)].the aim of the authors is to give some precisions about the relationship between the cycle of echinococcus multilocularis and the dynamics of the different potential hosts (rodents and carnivorous) existing on the area under study (sept-fontaines, doubs, france), by analysing the results of rodents trapping operation (mainly on microtus arvalis) some of it are infested by the parasite. for this purpose they include the parasite in a prey-predator system and show how the behavioural pattern of th ...19853909889
genetic diversity of echinococcus multilocularis on a local scale.echinococcusmultilocularis is the causative agent of human alveolar echinococcosis (ae), and it is one of the most lethal zoonotic infections in the northern hemisphere. in france, the eastern and central regions are endemic areas; franche-comté, lorraine and auvergne are particularly contaminated. recently, several human cases were recorded in the french ardennes area, a region adjacent to the western border of the e. multilocularis range in france. a previous study in this focus described a pr ...200818406214
modelling the spatial distribution of echinococcus multilocularis infection in foxes.alveolar echinococcosis is a rare but fatal disease in humans and is caused by the fox tapeworm echinococcus multilocularis. the densities of fox and grassland rodent populations and the interactions between them influence e. multilocularis transmission rates in europe. successful rabies control has caused fox populations and e. multilocularis prevalence rates to increase in many european countries. the potential increase of the infection pressure on the human population motivates the monitoring ...200415246931
[a probable case of alveolar echinococcosis in normandy, france].echinococcus multilocularis induced liver infection was diagnosed in a moroccan patient. diagnosis was based on ct scan results and western blot test. contamination probably occurred in france, in the cherbourg area where the patient travelled frequently and ate wild berries. this case and other recently reported cases outside the usual endemic areas (besançon and the massif central) suggest that the echinococcus multilocularis epidemic has moved towards the west of france. french gastroenterolo ...200516518290
