epidemiological studies on cystic echinococcosis in china--a the four decades from 1951 to 1990, the six provinces or autonomous regions (xinjiang, gansu, qinghai, ningxia, xizang and nei monggol) reported a total of 26,065 surgical cases of hydatid disease, most of which were reported in the recent decade. about one third of the patients was children and adolescents under 15 years old. so far, cystic hydatid infections of local origin have been confirmed in 22 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities in the whole nation. findings of x-ray exam ...19957546341
an epidemiological survey of cystic echinococcosis among tibetan school pupils in west china.human cystic echinococcosis (ce) caused by infection with a larval stage of echinococcus granulosus is a serious public health problem in west china. because ce is a zoonosis, dogs and livestock are important hosts in transmission. tibetans, especially teenagers, have a natural relationship with these definitive and intermediate hosts in west china and although some areas of tibet are therefore ce-endemic, few, if any, detailed community studies have been reported. a total of 451 tibetan school ...200111579862
knowledge, attitude, and practices (kap) and risk factors analysis related to cystic echinococcosis among residents in tibetan communities, xiahe county, gansu province, china.cystic echinococcosis (ce) is a global parasitic zoonosis caused by echinococcus granulosus. the disease is highly endemic in western china, especially in tibetan areas, because of poor economic development and hygiene conditions, limited community knowledge of ce, a large scale of dogs, and home slaughtering of livestock. although many researchers have analyzed risk factors of ce transmission in tibetan plateau, there are rare reports of knowledge, attitude, and practice (kap) of residents abou ...201525757370
molecular study of echinococcus in west-central china.west-central china is an important endemic focus of both alveolar and cystic echinococcosis where several species of intermediate host are commonly infected with echinococcus granulosus and e. multilocularis . isolates of e. granulosus were collected from humans and other animals from different geographical areas of qinghai, ningxia, gansu and sichuan, and genotyped using the mitochondrial dna marker atp synthase subunit 6 gene (atp6). the sheep strain (g1 genotype) of e. granulosus was shown to ...200516174420
[rflp analysis of dna from echinococcus granulosus collected from four provinces/autonomous region in china].a fragment of the ribosomal rna gene of schistosoma mansoni psm889 and two dna fragments specific to echinococcus granulosus phd5 and peg18 have been used as dna probes to assess the extent of genetic variability within e. granulosus. the dna analysis, including restriction endonuclease digestion and southern blot hybridization with the probes, did not demonstrate any genetic variation among e. granulosus collected from sheep in xinjiang, qinghai, gansu and ninxia. similarly, there was no geneti ...19937909504
