echinococcus in the south american red fox (dusicyon culpaeus) and the european hare (lepus europaeus) in the province of neuquén, argentina. 19724656449
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
diagnosis of cystic echinococcosis on sheep farms in the south of argentina: areas with a control program.in 2000 guarnera et al. proposed using elisa in canine faeces collected from the ground to detect dogs infected with echinococcus granulosus, thus determining sheep farms with active transmission. the objective was to evaluate the prevalence of e. granulosus infection in sheep farms of the patagonia. sheep farms were randomly selected in the provinces of río negro, chubut, neuquén, santa cruz and tierra del fuego (areas with control programs) and la pampa (comparison area). from one to three sam ...200415725535
epidemiology of toxocariasis in a steppe environment: the patagonia study.to investigate the epidemiology of human toxocariasis in a steppe environment, a field survey was carried out in three provinces of argentina's patagonia (chubut, neuquen, and rio negro) among 114 rural subjects residing in estancias (cattle- or sheep-breeding ranches). overall seroprevalence was 31.6%, and the contamination rate of soil by toxocara eggs was 35.1%. bivariate and multivariate analyses were performed for various exposure variables and also for the de martonne aridity-humidity inde ...200717556626
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
