evidence that a hydatid cyst is seldom "as old as the patient".human hydatid disease caused by the strain of echinococcus granulosus endemic in australia and new zeland has been regarded as a very lonstanding condition, and most cysts diagnosed in adults were believed to have resulted from infection in childhood. a significant drop in the number of new cases among people and 25 and over (p less than 0.05) in two hydatid-control programmes makes it necessary to revise this view. in both tasmania (p greater than 0.50) and new zealand (0.50 greater than p grea ...197878222
the control of hydatid disease and ovine cysticercoses in the australian capital territory and southern new south wales.a survey of human hydatid disease in new south wales and the australian capital territory over the period 1968 to 1973 was made from hospital records in sydney and canberra. the 162 new cases found represent an incidence, of 0-57 per 100,000 per annum, but the 20 patients living in the central west statistical division of new south wales at the time of admission to hospital represent an incidence of 12-6 per 100,000 per annum in that area. a survey of a.c.t. farms revealed dogs carrying the caus ...1977875855
a reconsideration of the echinococcus granulosus strain situation in australia following rflp analysis of cystic material.restriction fragment length polymorphism (rflp) analysis, previously shown to be a relatively simple and reproducible method for distinguishing discrete strains of e. granulosus, could not discriminate between e. granulosus originating from central queensland macropod marsupials, australian mainland sheep or united kingdom sheep. furthermore, sheep cyst material from tasmania and the australian mainland was indistinguishable using this approach. as a result of this dna analysis, the existence of ...19911680829
the origin of a new focus of infection with echinococcus granulosus in tasmania.hydatid cysts were discovered in cattle on king island, north of tasmania, where echinococcus granulosus was thought to have been eradicated. using enzyme electrophoresis, isolates from king island were compared genetically with isolates from tasmania and the mainland of australia. the genetic distinctness of the king island isolates make it unlikely that they originated from a recent introduction from either tasmania or mainland australia. alternative possibilities, that the infection resulted ...19911787038
australasian contributions to an understanding of the epidemiology and control of hydatid disease caused by echinococcus granulosus--past, present and future.for several years after echinococcus granulosus was introduced into australasia from europe, its life cycle was unknown. before the end of the 19th century, however, cystic hydatid disease (chd) was recognized in humans as an important cause of death, although its magnitude was not quantified. during the first 50 years of the 20th century, the urban component declined, but chd remained a serious source of ill-health. during the second half of the 20th century major research contributions have in ...19902210938
control of echinococcus granulosus in cyprus and comparison with other island models.a control programme directed against echinococcus granulosus was introduced into the republic of cyprus in 1971. in 1974, this was restricted to the areas controlled by the government of the island. the force used in the 'attack' phase included a major dog control programme. this and other measures led to the rapid 'disappearance' of the parasite and control was terminated in 1985. subsequent studies during 1993-1996 revealed that the parasite was present in 82 (20%) villages in either dogs or f ...19989806495
hydatid control in australia: where it began, what we have achieved and where to from here.echinococcus granulosus was imported into australia with domestic livestock about 200 years ago. it spread rapidly through domestic animals and quickly became a public health problem in the new colony. control was hampered by ignorance of the transmission pattern. the association between metacestodes and tapeworms was not elucidated until 63 years after the arrival of the first fleet. australian wildlife were highly susceptible to infection with e. granulosus and wildlife/domestic animal interac ...200515907851
control of cystic echinococcosis/hydatidosis: 1863-2002.echinococcosis/hydatidosis, caused by echinococcus granulosus, is a chronic and debilitating zoonotic larval cestode infection in humans, which is principally transmitted between dogs and domestic livestock, particularly sheep. human hydatid disease occurs in almost all pastoral communities and rangeland areas of the underdeveloped and developed world. control programmes against hydatidosis have been implemented in several endemic countries, states, provinces, districts or regions to reduce or e ...200616735171
growth and genotypes of echinococcus granulosus found in cattle imported from australia and fattened in japan.at the abattoir on study in miyazaki, japan, 9537 imported cattle from australia in average were slaughtered annually in the last 5years (2006 to 2010) and hydatid cysts were constantly detected in about 1.8% of the cattle. in order to assess the risk of echinococcus granulosus delivered to japan by imported cattle, 250 cysts found in 103 cattle at the abattoir were examined for their biological characteristics and genotypes. the cattle slaughtered were imported from australia at an age of 10-12 ...201121930239
echinococcus granulosus and other intestinal helminths: current status of prevalence and management in rural dogs of eastern australia.ascertain the prevalence of intestinal helminths in rural dogs from eastern australia and tasmania. identify farm management practices contributing to the perpetuation and transmission of echinococcus granulosus.201425066196
the prevalence of tapeworms in dogs during the hydatid limitation program in tasmania.the hydatid limitation program in tasmania began in 1965 with the annual purging of dogs to identify areas of high prevalence of echinococcus granulosus combined with a strong educational program aimed at preventing access to offal by dogs. from 1969 to 1975 aenia spp detected in dog purges were submitted for identification and changes in annual prevalences analysed for each species. despite a significant reduction in the prevalence of e. granulosus since the beginning of the program, the contro ...1977558749
