endoparasitic infections in dogs from rural areas in the lobos district, buenos aires province, argentina.dogs are definite hosts for several zoonotic helminthes and protozoan. rural areas from the lobos district in the northeast of buenos aires province, argentina, are mainly used for livestock activity, increasing in this way the number of dogs on farms as well as the human risk of parasitic infections. the aims of this research were to evaluate the endoparasitic infections in dogs from farms in the lobos district and analyze their zoonotic importance as well as several risk practices and habits o ...201323538502
echinococcus granulosus genotype g1 dominated in cattle and sheep during 2003-2006 in buenos aires province, an endemic area for cystic echinococcosis in argentina.cystic echinococcosis (hydatidosis) is a severe and widespread disease, caused by the larval stage of the tapeworm echinococcus granulosus; it affects large numbers of humans and farm animals annually, causing serious health and economic problems. molecular studies have identified large genetic variation within the e. granulosus complex, with various hosts displaying different susceptibility to different genotypes. for the effective management of the disease, one of the most pressing tasks is to ...201323632259
epidemiological studies on echinococcus in pampas fox (lycalopex gymnocercus) and european hare (lepus europaeus) in buenos aires province, argentina.in argentina, hydatid disease caused by echinococcus granulosus is widespread. the south of buenos aires province, argentina, is one of the three regions where hydatidosis is endemic. although domestic dogs and sheep are considered to be the main hosts for e. granulosus, the potential role of wildlife in the local transmission of e. granulosus has not been investigated. the aim of this study was to estimate the hydatidosis/echinococcosis prevalence in european hare (lepus europaeus) and pampas f ...201323892482
reprint of "survey and first molecular characterization of echinococcus granulosus sensu stricto (g1) in pampas fox (lycalopex gymnocercus) in buenos aires province, argentina".echinococcosis is a zoonosis caused by tapeworms of the genus echinococcus. echinococcus granulosus sensu lato (s. l.) has a world-wide distribution and its transmission is primarily maintained in a synanthropic cycle with dogs as definitive hosts and livestock species as intermediate hosts. however, many wild canids also function as definitive hosts for e. granulosus s. l. echinococcosis in humans is mainly caused by e. granulosus sensu stricto (s. s.) g1 genotype. in the present work, we expan ...201727887693

hydatidosis cases in one of mar del plata city hospitals, buenos aires, argentina.hydatidosis is a zoonosis of worldwide distribution produced mainly by the metacestode echinococcus granulosus. in argentina, its distribution reaches endemic levels. the aims of this investigation were to contribute to the knowledge of hydatidosis in the southeast of buenos aires province, study its evolution at the interzonal general hospital for acute diseases between 1992 and 2002 and discuss its importance. clinical records of operated and/or diagnosed patients were reviewed with regard to ...200718200415
pediatric hydatidosis in the south-east of the buenos aires province, argentina.hydatidosis is a zoonosis produced by the metacestode echinococcus spp. the aims of this research are: to contribute to the knowledge of pediatric hydatidosis in the south-east of buenos aires province, to study its evolution from 1993 to 2002 at the regional maternity and pediatric hospital "dr. victorio tetamanti", to determine the strains involved and to discuss the importance of the disease. the clinical records of diagnosed and/or operated patients were reviewed with regard to the hydatid d ...200919623901
genetic variation and epidemiology of echinococcus granulosus in argentina.polymerase chain reaction-ribosomal its-1 dna (rdna) restriction fragment length polymorphism (pcr-rflp) analysis and sequencing of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (co1) and nadh dehydrogenase 1 (nd1) genes were used to characterize 33 echinococcus granulosus isolates collected from different regions and hosts in argentina, and to determine which genotypes occurred in humans with cystic hydatid disease. the results of the study demonstrated the presence of at least 4 distinct ge ...199910363285
