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 genetic comparison of human and wildlife isolates of echinococcus granulosus in queensland: public health implications.to test the hypothesis that the hydatid parasite infecting macropods and dingoes in queensland is a sylvatic strain of echinococcus granulosus, distinct from the domestic strain which produces cysts in sheep and humans.19921346467
the role of foxes vulpes vulpes in the epidemiology of echinococcus granulosus in urban environments.to survey the prevalence of intestinal worms, particularly echinococcus granulosus, in foxes in canberra.19921454000
morphological characterization of adult echinococcus granulosus as a means of determining transmission patterns.host induced changes in morphological characters of the rostellar hooks of echinococcus granulosus were used to determine the origin of infection in definitive hosts in rural areas of southeastern australia where wild and domestic cycles of transmission may interact. the morphological characters studied vary depending on the species of intermediate host (macropod marsupials, sheep) in which protoscoleces develop, and these characters are retained in adult worms. it was therefore possible to dete ...19938437058
detection of echinococcus granulosus coproantigens in faeces from naturally infected rural domestic dogs in south eastern australia.to investigate the occurrence of echinococcus granulosus in rural domestic dogs in farming areas around yass, new south wales, and mansfield and whitfield, victoria.200616498828

combining data from morphological traits and genetic markers to determine transmission cycles in the tape worm, echinococcus granulosus.species of echinococcus (cestoda: taeniidae) require 2 mammalian hosts to complete their life-cycle; a carnivorous definitive host, and a herbivorous or omnivorous intermediate host. for most species of echinococcus, the definitive host range is restricted to 1 or a few species, but the intermediate host range is very broad. programmes to control hydatid disease attempt to break the life-cycle of the parasite and their effectiveness is therefore enhanced by an understanding of local patterns of ...19989778641
parasites and associated pathology of the swamp wallaby, wallabia bicolor (marsupialia).thirty-five swamp wallabies from victoria, new south wales and queensland, australia were examined for parasites. thirty-nine species of nematodes, five species of cestodes and eight species of arthropods were found. wallabies from queensland and northern new south wales had a less diverse helminth fauna (23 species) than did wallabies from southern new south wales and victoria (32 species). rugopharynx spp. and cloacina spp. occurred in large numbers in the stomach but provoked no pathological ...19854078972

helminth parasites of the fox (vulpes vulpes) in new south wales.a total of 930 foxes (vulpes vulpes) from new south wales were examined for the presence of gastro-intestinal helminth parasites. the cestodes were represented by taenia pisiformis with a prevalence of 15.7%, t. serialis (22.6%), t. taeniaeformis (0.1%), spirometra erinacei (28.7%) and dipylidium caninum (8.3%). no specimens of t. ovis, t. hydatigena or echinococcus granulosus were encountered. toxocara canis was the most prevalent nematode and occurred in 35.2% of foxes. other nematodes encount ...1976985241
