cystic echinococcosis in argentina: evolution of metacestode and clinical expression in various echinococcus granulosus strains.echinococcus granulosus hydatid cysts were examined in 41 patients from neuquén and tucumán provinces in argentina. sequencing of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (co1) revealed in 19 patients common sheep strain (g1), in 6 patients tasmania sheep strain (g2), in 1 patient cattle strain (g5), and in 15 patients camel strain (g6). in argentina the only known is the domestic cycle that affects dogs and herbivorous, including ovine, swine, cattle and goats. these strains produced a ...200415350868
molecular characterization of echinococcus isolates indicates goats as reservoir for echinococcus canadensis g6 genotype in neuquén, patagonia argentina.human cystic echinococcosis is a highly endemic zoonotic disease in the province of neuquén, patagonia argentina, although a hydatid control programme has been carried out since 1970. human infection due to echinococcus canadensis (g6 genotype) is frequent in neuquén. however, the reservoir for this species remains undetermined in a region where camels are absent. we investigated the fertility, viability and molecular epidemiology of hydatid cysts obtained from local goats, pigs and sheep in ord ...201020667482
