prevalence and risks for fishborne zoonotic trematode infections in domestic animals in a highly endemic area of north vietnam.fishborne zoonotic trematodes (fzt) are endemic in humans and cultured fish in vietnam but little is known about fzt in domestic animals. a study was designed to determine fzt prevalence and species diversity, and risk factors for infection, in dogs, cats and pigs. faecal samples from 186 dogs, 94 cats and 168 pigs belonging to 132 households in nghia hung district, nam dinh province, were examined for small trematode eggs; those were trematode eggs with length less than 50 microm. prevalence of ...200919660428
raw-fish-eating behavior and fishborne zoonotic trematode infection in people of northern vietnam.raw fish consumption in restaurants, for example, sashimi style, is popular worldwide. in vietnam, raw fish dishes are also traditionally prepared and consumed in private households. however, the habits of eating raw or otherwise inadequately cooked fish can be associated with risks of acquiring fishborne zoonotic trematode (fzt) infection. the present study was done in a fish-farming community in nam dinh, vietnam, to obtain information about habits of eating raw fish dishes and risks for human ...201021117922
farm-level risk factors for fish-borne zoonotic trematode infection in integrated small-scale fish farms in northern vietnam.northern vietnam is an endemic region for fish-borne zoonotic trematodes (fzt), including liver and intestinal flukes. humans acquire the fzt infection by eating raw or inadequately cooked fish. the production of fzt-free fish in aquaculture is a key component in establishing a sustainable program to prevent and control the fzt transmission to humans. interventions in aquaculture should be based on knowledge of the main risk factors associated with fzt transmission.201020644617
fish-borne zoonotic trematodes in cultured and wild-caught freshwater fish from the red river delta, vietnam.nam dinh province in red river delta, vietnam, is an endemic area for the human liver fluke clonorchis sinensis, but little is known about its occurrence in the fish intermediate host in this region. a cross-sectional study was carried out to identify fish-borne zoonotic trematodes (fzt) species diversity and to estimate the prevalence and infection densities of fzt in three major types of fish: cultured species and self-recruiting species from family ponds and wild-caught species from irrigatio ...201020370427
