characterisation of fasciola species from mainland china by its-2 ribosomal dna sequence.isolates of fasciola (platyhelminthes: trematoda: digenea) from different host species and geographical locations in mainland china were characterised genetically. the second internal transcribed spacer (its-2) of nuclear ribosomal dna (rdna) was amplified from individual trematodes by polymerase chain reaction (pcr), and the representative amplicons were cloned and sequenced. the length of the its-2 sequences was 361-362bp for all chinese fasciola specimens sequenced. while there was no variati ...200415019145
economic effects of echinococcosis in a disease-endemic region of the tibetan plateau.this report attempts to quantify the economic losses due to echinococcus multilocularis and e. granulosus in shiqu county, sichuan, people's republic of china, as well as illustrate the cost effectiveness of dog anthelmintic prophylaxis combined with a sheep and goat vaccination program in terms of disability-adjusted life years (dalys) saved. we evaluated human losses associated with treatment costs and loss of income due to morbidity and mortality, in addition to production losses in livestock ...200516014823
molecular study of echinococcus in west-central china.west-central china is an important endemic focus of both alveolar and cystic echinococcosis where several species of intermediate host are commonly infected with echinococcus granulosus and e. multilocularis . isolates of e. granulosus were collected from humans and other animals from different geographical areas of qinghai, ningxia, gansu and sichuan, and genotyped using the mitochondrial dna marker atp synthase subunit 6 gene (atp6). the sheep strain (g1 genotype) of e. granulosus was shown to ...200516174420
species identification of human echinococcosis using histopathology and genotyping in northwestern china.human cystic echinococcosis, caused by infection with the larval stage of echinococcus granulosus, and alveolar echinococcosis, caused by the larval form of e. multilocularis, are known to be important public health problems in western china. echinococcus shiquicus is a new species of echinococcus recently described in wildlife hosts from the eastern tibetan plateau and its infectivity and/or pathogenicity in humans remain unknown. in the current study, parasite tissues from various organs were ...200818396303
[monitoring the microtus fuscus plague epidemic in sichuan province during 2000 - 2008.].to analyze the epidemic tendency of microtus fuscus plague during 2000 - 2008 in sichuan province.200920193590
the identification of the cryptosporidium ubiquitum in pre-weaned ovines from aba tibetan and qiang autonomous prefecture in china.cryptosporidium spp. are prevalent globally and sheep are an important zoonotic reservoir. little data regarding the rates of cryptosporidium infections in ovines in china are available. this study assessed the prevalence of cryptosporidium spp. in pre-weaned ovines from aba tibetan and qiang autonomous prefecture in the sichuan province of china.201121784319
characterization of the ghr gene genetic variation in chinese indigenous goat breeds.the aim of the present work was to investigate single nucleotide polymorphism (snp) of growth hormone receptor (ghr) gene exon 10, characterize the genetic variation in three chinese indigenous goat breeds, and search for its potential association with cashmere traits. in this study, a polymerase chain reaction-single strand conformation polymorphism (pcr-sscp) protocol has been developed for rapid genotyping of the ghr gene in goats. one hundred seventy-eight goats from liaoning cashmere (96), ...201120364329
echinococcus granulosus infection and options for control of cystic echinococcosis in tibetan communities of western sichuan province, china.human cystic echinococcosis (ce) is highly endemic in the tibetan regions of sichuan where most families keep guard dogs and where there are considerable numbers of ownerless/stray dogs. strong buddhist beliefs do not allow for elimination of stray dogs, and many strays are actually fed and adopted by households or monasteries. on account of the high altitude (3900-5000 m), pasturage is the major agricultural activity in this area. the harsh mountainous climate often leads to many grazing animal ...200919399162
theileriosis of sheep and goats in china.theileriosis is an important disease of sheep and goats in west china. its main distribution includes qinghai, gansu, ningxia, inner mongolia, shaanxi and sichuan. the epidemic period is from late march to july with april-may being the peak months. this is the period of most intensive tick attack by haemaphysalis qinghaiensis (77.2-99.24%) during the year. it has been proved that the nymphs and adults, which develop from larvae and nymphs engorged on infected sheep or goats can transmit the path ...19979512737
molecular phylogeography and genetic differentiation of blue sheep pseudois nayaurszechuanensis and pseudois schaeferi in china.within the genus pseudois (bovidae, artiodactyla), two challenges are faced by taxonomists. first, the designation of the two subspecies of blue sheep, pseudois nayaur nayaur and pseudois nayaurszechuanensis, tends to be questionable with the accumulation of morphological and molecular data. second, the taxonomic status of the dwarf blue sheep (pseudois schaeferi) has been controversial since its discovery, and molecular analyses with relatively small sample sizes have not painted a clear pictur ...200818565767
