coproantigen detection in a survey of echinococcus multilocularis infection among red foxes, vulpes vulpes schrencki, in hokkaido, japan.detection of echinococcus coproantigen using sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (selisa) was performed on fecal samples of red foxes in hokkaido, japan. fecal samples were collected around fox dens in 1990 and 1992. the antibodies used for selisa recognize heat-resistant antigens, thus all fecal samples were heated to render it safe for handling before examination. detection of taeniid egg in fox feces collected was considered as an indication of e. multilocularis infection. in fecal sam ...19989637302
prevalence and intensity of echinococcus multilocularis in red foxes (vulpes vulpes schrencki) and raccoon dogs (nyctereutes procyonoides albus) in otaru city, hokkaido, japan.a survey was done in an attempt to investigate the epidemiological status of echinococcus multilocularis in red foxes and raccoon dogs in otaru city from june to september 1999. sixty-seven red foxes (vulpes vulpes schrencki) and 13 raccoon dogs (nyctereutes procyonoides albus) were captured, and postmortem examinations were conducted with them. thirty-eight red foxes (56.7%) and 3 raccoon dogs (23.1%) were found to be infected with e. multilocularis. the total biomass of e. multilocularis in al ...200211949476
characterization and application of newly developed polymorphic microsatellite markers in the ezo red fox (vulpes vulpes schrencki).the ezo red fox (vulpes vulpes schrencki), a subspecies endemic to hokkaido island, japan, is a known host species for the tapeworm echinococcus multilocularis. to develop tools for molecular ecological studies, we isolated 28 microsatellite regions from the genome of ezo red fox, and developed 18 polymorphic microsatellite markers. these markers were characterized using 7 individuals and 22 fecal samples of the ezo red fox. the number of alleles for these markers ranged from 1 to 7, and the obs ...201628002597
