status of haemaphysalis tick infestation in domestic ruminants in iran.the geographical distribution and ecological preferences of haemaphysalis in domestic animals in iran were studied 4 times a year from april 2003 to march 2005. a total of 1,622 ixodid tick specimens were collected from 3 different zones. among them, 108 (6.7%) haemaphysalis ticks, consisting of 6 species, were identified; h. punctata (3.4%), h. parva (0.5%), h. sulcata (0.6%), h. choldokovskyi (1.7%), h. concinna (0.06%) and haemaphysalis sp. (0.6%). h. punctata was the most abundant species, w ...200717570976
mesenteric and mediastinal lymph node infection with linguatula serrata nymphs in sheep slaughtered in kerman slaughterhouse, southeast iran.this research was carried out in order to detect the prevalence of nymphal stages of linguatula serrata in mediastinal and mesenteric lymph nodes of sheep slaughtered in kerman slaughterhouse, southeast of iran. for this purpose, mesenteric and mediastinal lymph nodes of 806 sheep of different sex and age were examined. one hundred and thirty out of 806 (16.1%) of the sheep were found positive for l. serrata infection. the infection rate increased with age (pā€‰<ā€‰0.001). prevalence of l. serrata n ...201120683656
genetic characterization of echinococcus granulosus in camels, cattle and sheep from the south-east of iran indicates the presence of the g3 genotype.echinococcus granulosus, the aetiologic agent of cystic echinococcosis (ce), is one of the most important zoonotic helminthes worldwide. isolates of the parasite show considerable genetic variation in different intermediate hosts. several genotypes and species are described in different eco-epidemiological settings. this study investigated e. granulosus genotypes existing in livestock and humans from the province of kerman, located in south-eastern iran, using sequencing data of cox1 and nad1 mi ...201121749740
