the prevalence, intensity and viability of hydatid cysts in slaughtered animals in the ardabil province of northwest a cross-sectional study, a total of 5381 slaughtered animals, namely 928 cattle, 243 buffaloes, 3765 sheep and 445 goats were inspected macroscopically for hydatid cysts in northwest iran, with prevalence values of 38.3%, 11.9%, 74.4% and 20%, respectively, being recorded. prevalences were higher in females compared with males, but a significant difference (p < 0.001) was only found in sheep and cattle. most cases which were condemned were seen in the lungs of sheep (13.4%) indicating that sh ...200717381862
The prevalence and fertility of hydatid cysts in buffaloes from Iran.Cystic echinococcosis caused by Echinococcus granulosus is considered to be an important parasitic infection in livestock. In the present study, which aimed to determine the epidemiology of hydatidosis in buffalo in Iran, slaughterhouses of West Azerbaijan (Urmia), East Azerbaijan (Tabriz), Ardabil (Ardabil), Gilan (Rasht and Hashtpar) and Khuzestan (Ahvaz) were inspected. Age, sex and infected organs were recorded separately, and the observed cysts were examined for fertility and viability. Our ...201121923975
genotyping of echinococcus granulosus from domestic animals and humans from ardabil province, northwest iran.cystic echinococcosis is endemic in iran, particularly in ardabil province, where it causes health and economic problems. the genetic pattern of echinococcus granulosus has been determined in most parts of iran, except in this area. in the present investigation, 55 larval isolates were collected from humans (11), sheep (19), goats (4) and cattle (21). for analysis of the genetic characteristics of e. granulosus isolates, dna sequencing of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (cox1) and n ...201323046636
