genetic diversity of echinococcus spp. in russia, both alveolar and cystic echinococcoses are endemic. this study aimed to identify the aetiological agents of the diseases and to investigate the distribution of each echinococcus species in russia. a total of 75 echinococcus specimens were collected from 14 host species from 2010 to 2012. based on the mitochondrial dna sequences, they were identified as echinococcus granulosus sensu stricto (s.s.), e. canadensis and e. multilocularis. e. granulosus s.s. was confirmed in the european r ...201323985385
[efficacy of a new mebendazole formulation for experimental echinococcus granulosus larval invasion in albino mice].the problem of echinococcosis has acquired special urgency in russia in the last 10 years. the dramatically worse epidemiological situation of echinococcosis in the country is suggested by just frequent cases of cystic echinococcosis in the indigenous population of moscow and its region, including children. currently, albendazole that is less toxic than mebendazole remains the drug of choice, however, some authors note that e. granulosus larval cysts are moresusceptible to mebendazole than to al ...201626827585
[human echinococcosis: the role of histocompatibility antigens in realizing infestations and the characteristics of their course].the role of histocompatibility antigens in the realization of invasions and the nature of its course were studied in 71 patients with echinococcus granulosus infection and in 18 with e. multilocularis infection. it has been shown that the effects of hla antigens on the realization of invasion is heterodirectional; the factors predisposing to the occurrence of echinococcosis are hla-b5, b18, and a28 antigens, whereas those preventing their realization are hla-b14 antigen. the carriage of hla-b5 a ...19938127263
