notes on human cases of cystic echinococcosis in peru.cystic echinococcosis (ce) is a high prevalent zoonosis in the central and southern peruvian andes. serum samples (n50)from patients presenting presumptive clinical and radiological diagnosis of ce (group 1), were tested for antibodies against echinococcus granulosus metacestode using arc-5 double diffusion assay (dd5), immunoelectrophoresis (ief), and immunoelectrotransfer blot (eitb) techniques. serum samples (n18) from patients presenting other parasite infections (paragonomiasis, cysticercos ...200616862333
molecular characterization of echinococcus granulosus from peru by sequencing of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 gene.echinococcus granulosus, the etiologic agent of cystic echinococcosis (ce) in humans and other animal species, is distributed worldwide. ten intra-specific variants, or genotypes (g1-g10), have been defined based on genetic diversity. to determine the genotypes present in endemic areas of peru, samples were collected from cattle (44), sheep (41) and humans (14) from junín, puno huancavelica, cusco, arequipa and ayacucho. dna was extracted from protoscolex and/or germinal layers derived from 99 e ...201020944997
intraspecific variation of echinococcus granulosus in livestock from peru.echinococcus granulosus infection is a problem of public health in livestock-rearing regions of latin america, like in peru. this species is characterized by the morphometry of the large and small rostellar hooks in both metacestodes and adult worms. the aim of this work was to study biometrical characteristics of rostellar hooks in hydatid cysts (lung and liver) from some peruvian provinces (arequipa, cuzco, huancavelica, junin and puno). the biometrical analysis was obtained in a digital syste ...200716962710
