a cross-sectional study on the potential transmission of the carcinogenic liver fluke opisthorchis viverrini and other fishborne zoonotic trematodes by aquaculture fish.throughout southeast asia and china, eating raw and or partially cooked cyprinid fish causes liver (hepatobiliary) disease and cancer (cholangiocarcinoma) due to fishborne zoonotic trematodes (fzt), in particular clonorchis sinensis and opisthorchis viverrini. the primary source of transmission is by native fish, but aquaculture fish are also reported to have high infective potential. here, a cross-sectional survey of fzt in fish farms was conducted in an endemic area in khon kaen province, thai ...201323320421
infection dynamics and molecular identification of metacercariae in cyprinoids from chiang mai and sakon nakhon provinces.the infection dynamics of metacercariae were assessed in cyprinoid fish (cyprinoids) from chiang mai and sakon nakhon provinces, thailand, during october 2008 to september 2009. the samples were collected during 3 seasons from rivers and local markets. metacercarial infection was determined by acid-pepsin digestion and confirmed using hat-rapd pcr method. thirteen and 16 species of cyprinoids were collected from chiang mai and sakon nakhon with overall prevalences of metacercarial infection of 8 ...201121323165
fishborne trematode metacercariae detected in freshwater fish from vientiane municipality and savannakhet province, lao pdr.freshwater fish from vientiane municipality and savannakhet province, lao pdr were examined by the muscle compression and artificial digestion methods to know the infection status with trematode metacercariae. in the fish from savannakhet, 2 species of metacercariae, opisthorchis viverrini and haplorchis taichui, were detected. o. viverrini metacercariae were found in 6 species of fish, puntius brevis, hampala dispar, esomus metallicus, mystacoleucus marginatus, puntioplites falcifer, and cycloc ...200819127332
