molecular identification of human echinococcosis in the altai region of russia.mitochondrial haplotypes were determined for echinococcus species infecting individuals diagnosed with alveolar echinococcosis (ae) and cystic echinococcosis (ce) at altai state medical university hospital in barnaul, russia during 2008 to 2011. the nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (cox1) gene was determined for 31 of 34 ae and 8 of 12 ce cases. all of the ae cases were confirmed to be caused by asian type echinococcus multilocularis, while ce cases were ca ...201222609955
genetic diversity of echinococcus spp. in russia, both alveolar and cystic echinococcoses are endemic. this study aimed to identify the aetiological agents of the diseases and to investigate the distribution of each echinococcus species in russia. a total of 75 echinococcus specimens were collected from 14 host species from 2010 to 2012. based on the mitochondrial dna sequences, they were identified as echinococcus granulosus sensu stricto (s.s.), e. canadensis and e. multilocularis. e. granulosus s.s. was confirmed in the european r ...201323985385
