hydatidosis in camels (camelus dromedarius) and their potential role in the epidemiology of echinococcus granulosus in iran.hydatid cysts were recovered from 35.2% (233/661) of camels (camelus dromedarius) slaughtered in five different regions of iran. the degree of prevalence between males (34.4%) and females (36.6%) was not statistically significant. the highest rate of infection (59.3%) was found in the isfahan region (in the central part of iran) while the lowest (25.7%) was found in kerman province. the organ distribution of cysts was 49.4% in lungs alone, 30.0% in both liver and lungs, 14.6% in liver only and 6 ...200515946390
genetic characterization of echinococcus granulosus from a large number of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue samples of human isolates in iran.cystic echinococcosis (ce), caused by the larval stage of echinococcus granulosus, presents an important medical and veterinary problem globally, including that in iran. different genotypes of e. granulosus have been reported from human isolates worldwide. this study identifies the genotype of the parasite responsible for human hydatidosis in three provinces of iran using formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue samples. in this study, 200 formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue samples from huma ...201525535316
copro-pcr prevalence of echinococcus granulosus infection in dogs in kerman, south-eastern iran.the main objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of taeniid parasites and the specific detection of echinococcus granulosus using copro-dna polymerase chain reaction (pcr) analysis in the stray dogs of kerman, south-eastern iran. from september 2013 to may 2014, faecal samples of stray dogs were collected from different parts of the city of kerman and its suburbs. faecal samples from dogs were collected randomly within 24 h of defecation. all samples were transferred to the resea ...201728132657
sonographical and serological survey of human cystic echinococcosis and analysis of risk factors associated with seroconversion in rural communities of kerman, iran.cystic echinococcosis (ce) caused by larval stage of echinococcus granulosus, is an endemic zoonosis in iran particularly in rural regions. the objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of ce among rural communities in kerman using ultrasonography (us) and serology. kerman province, in southeastern iran, is the largest province, with 2.9 million inhabitants. a sample of 1140 individuals (200 males and 940 females) was selected by randomized cluster sampling in 2006-2008. after acqu ...201121824361
genetic characterization of echinococcus granulosus in camels, cattle and sheep from the south-east of iran indicates the presence of the g3 genotype.echinococcus granulosus, the aetiologic agent of cystic echinococcosis (ce), is one of the most important zoonotic helminthes worldwide. isolates of the parasite show considerable genetic variation in different intermediate hosts. several genotypes and species are described in different eco-epidemiological settings. this study investigated e. granulosus genotypes existing in livestock and humans from the province of kerman, located in south-eastern iran, using sequencing data of cox1 and nad1 mi ...201121749740
