some gastro-intestinal parasites of zoonotic (public health) importance commonly observed in old world non-human primates in kenya.a study was undertaken to categorise some gastro-intestinal (git) parasites commonly observed in kenyan non-human primates (nhps) on the basis of their health implications for humans. six species of locally available non-human primates, namely olive baboons (papio cyanocephalus anubis), vervet monkey (cercopithecus aethiops), sykes monkey (cercopithecus mitis), black and white colobus (colobus abyssinicus), debrazzas monkey (cercopithecus neglectus) and grey and black mangabeys (cercocebus torqu ...19989776144
zoonotic intestinal parasites in papio anubis (baboon) and cercopithecus aethiops (vervet) from four localities in ethiopia.a total of 59 faecal samples from ranging papio anubis (baboons) and another 41 from cercopithecus aethiops (vervet) from the rift valley areas of ethiopia were microscopically examined to determine the prevalence and species of major gastro-intestinal parasites of zoonotic importance. faecal smears were prepared from fresh faecal samples, stained using modified ziehl-neelsen method and microscopically examined. about 3 gm of the dropping was also preserved separately in clean and properly label ...200415099809
gastrointestinal parasites of the guenons of western uganda.from january 1998 to december 2002, we collected 293 fecal samples from free-ranging individuals of the 4 guenon species of western uganda, i.e., redtail guenons (cercopithecus ascanius), blue monkeys (cercopithecus mitis), l'hoesti monkeys (cercopithecus lhoesti), and vervet monkeys (cercopithecus aethiops), to quantify the prevalence of gastrointestinal parasites. helminth eggs, larvae, and protozoan cysts were isolated by sodium nitrate flotation and fecal sedimentation. helminth parasites we ...200415715228
parasitology of five primates in mahale mountains national park, tanzania.parasitological surveillance in primates has been performed using coprological observation and identification of specimens from chimpanzees (pan troglodytes schweinfurthii) in mahale mountains national park, tanzania (mahale). in this study, we conducted coprological surveillance to identify the fauna of parasite infection in five primate species in mahale: red colobus (procolobus badius tephrosceles), red-tailed monkeys (cercopithecus ascanius schmidti), vervet monkeys (cercopithecus aethiops p ...201222661394
number of grooming partners is associated with hookworm infection in wild vervet monkeys (chlorocebus aethiops).there are many known benefits of social grooming among primates, including maintenance of social relationships, removal of ectoparasites, and improved physiological condition. recently, however, researchers have noted that social grooming and social contact may also present a significant cost by facilitating transmission of some parasites and pathogens. we investigated whether the number of social grooming partners varied based on infection status for gastrointestinal parasites. we used focal an ...201627682258
