echinococcus multilocularis leuckart, 1863 in rodents in southern alberta. 19744422509
echinococcal disease in alberta, canada: more than a calcified opacity.most cases of echinococcal disease (ed) acquired in canada are thought to be due to the sylvatic form of echinococcus granulosus, which may be more benign than ed due to either echinococcus multilocularis or the pastoral form of e. granulosus. there are limited descriptions of the clinical course and outcome of canadian patients with ed in the modern era.200515904502
echinococcus multilocularis in urban coyotes, alberta, canada.echinococcus multilocularis is a zoonotic parasite in wild canids. we determined its frequency in urban coyotes (canis latrans) in alberta, canada. we detected e. multilocularis in 23 of 91 coyotes in this region. this parasite is a public health concern throughout the northern hemisphere, partly because of increased urbanization of wild canids.201223017505
a new intermediate host for echinococcus multilocularis: the southern red-backed vole (myodes gapperi) in urban landscape in calgary, canada.human alveolar echinococcosis (hae) is a potentially fatal parasitic disease caused by echinococcus multilocularis, a cestode characterized by a sylvatic life-cycle involving several species of rodents and lagomorphs as intermediate hosts and canids as definitive hosts. despite the wide distribution of the parasite in north america, the number of competent intermediate host species identified to date is still relatively small, and mainly includes the northern vole (microtus oeconomus), brown lem ...201323608104
infection of a goeldi's monkey (callimico goeldii) with a european strain of echinococcus multilocularis in a canadian institution.a 12-yr-old female goeldi's monkey (callimico goeldii) in british columbia, canada was diagnosed with alveolar echinococcosis (ae) on postmortem examination. echinococcus multilocularis has been identified in several species of nonhuman primates, most frequently old world primates, in zoos and research facilities in europe and asia. the strain affecting this monkey was identified as a european haplotype, indistinguishable from e. multilocularis recently identified in several canids in british co ...201526056899
sensitivity of double centrifugation sugar fecal flotation for detecting intestinal helminths in coyotes (canis latrans).fecal analysis is commonly used to estimate prevalence and intensity of intestinal helminths in wild carnivores, but few studies have assessed the reliability of fecal flotation compared to analysis of intestinal tracts. we investigated sensitivity of the double centrifugation sugar fecal flotation and kappa agreement between fecal flotation and postmortem examination of intestines for helminths of coyotes (canis latrans). we analyzed 57 coyote carcasses that were collected between october 2010 ...201222740537
