larva migrans in squirrel monkeys experimentally infected with baylisascaris potosis.roundworms of the genus baylisascaris are natural parasites primarily of wild carnivores, and they can occasionally cause infection in humans and animals. infection results in visceral larva migrans and/or neural larva migrans, which can be severe or fatal in some animals. recently, baylisascaris nematodes isolated from kinkajous (potos flavus) and previously referred to as baylisascaris procyonis were renamed as baylisascaris potosis; however, data regarding the pathogenicity of b. potosis towa ...201525796550
baylisascaris potosis n. sp., a new ascarid nematode isolated from captive kinkajou, potos flavus, from the cooperative republic of guyana.we describe a new nematode species, baylisascaris potosis n. sp., isolated from captive kinkajou, potos flavus, from the cooperative republic of guyana. the nematode was found in fecal specimens, identified morphologically, and confirmed genetically. the new species is similar to baylisascaris procyonis, baylisascaris columnaris, and other baylisascaris species, but is distinguished by the position of the male phasmidial pole. nuclear and mitochondrial dna sequence analyses confirmed that the ne ...201424662055
experimental infection of mongolian gerbils with baylisascaris potosis.the present study evaluated the pathogenicity of baylisascaris potosis, a newly described ascarid nematode, in mongolian gerbils. gerbils were infected with varying doses of either b. potosis or baylisascaris transfuga embryonated eggs (100, 1,000, and 4,000) for 30 days postinfection (pi). baylisascaris potosis-infected gerbils showed no clinical signs of disease; however, gerbils exposed to 1,000 and 4,000 b. transfuga eggs showed severe neurologic signs at 22-29 days and 14-15 days pi, respec ...201525014190
prevalence of baylisascaris roundworm in captive kinkajous in japan.baylisascaris potosis causes larva migrans in animals. the present study evaluated the prevalence of b. potosis in captive kinkajous ( potos flavus ) and the ability of milbemycin to treat natural infections of b. potosis in 2 female wild-caught kinkajous. in 2012, fecal samples were collected from 16 kinkajous in 6 zoological gardens and 29 imported captive kinkajous from 4 pet traders in japan. although all samples from zoological gardens were negative, 8 kinkajous from traders were positive f ...201626565681
