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
evaluation of control programmes for echinococcosis/hydatidosis in cyprus, echinococcosis (echinococcus granulosus) was an important public and animal health problem until the 1970s. in 1971, the department of veterinary services instigated a control programme, which was based on an island model, using arecoline testing, euthanasia of positive dogs, control of dog breeding, elimination of stray dogs and control measures in slaughterhouses. the first programme ended in 1985 with excellent results and e. granulosus was considered to have been eradicated from b ...200011107621
screening of dogs for echinococcus granulosus coproantigen in a low endemic situation in the framework of an echinococcosis surveillance and control programme in cyprus, a commercial enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa) (chekit echinotest) designed for the detection of echinococcus granulosus and e. multilocularis coproantigens was used in 1997-2000 for the investigation of large numbers of dogs. most of the animals originated from areas where approximately 0.2% of the dogs had been found to be infected with e. granulosus in previous (1993-1996) arecoline surveys. the sensit ...200211836030
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
rats as indicators of the presence and dispersal of pathogens in cyprus: ectoparasites, parasitic helminths, enteric bacteria, and encephalomyocarditis virus.rodents play an active role in the transmission of a number of zoonoses by harboring and disseminating the pathogens involved, either through their biological materials or via their ectoparasites. hence, the spatial and seasonal distribution of potential agents of zoonoses may be studied by examining their distribution in the rodent vectors and their ectoparasites. a surveillance was conducted in wild rodents in 51 different areas of cyprus, an island ecosystem, to monitor the reemergence of ech ...201020370433
association between echinococcus granulosus infection and cancer risk - a pilot study in cyprus.infections from microorganisms and parasites have been connected with either increased or decreased cancer risk. the objective of this study was to investigate whether infection by echinococcus granulosus is associated with cancer risk.201627327131
