erhaia (gastropoda: rissooidea): phylogenetic relationships and the question of paragonimus coevolution in asia.the human lung fluke paragonimus is transmitted by gastropod taxa of two superfamilies: ceritheoidea and rissooidea. the question whether or not paragonimus shows the same specificity of host-parasite coevolved relationship as the human blood fluke schistosoma was inspired by the finding of two sympatric snail species as hosts for paragonimus skrjabini in fujian province, china: gammatricula and erhaia. the former species can clearly be classified as pomatiopsidae: triculinae. the latter has pre ...200011220760

[paragonimus skrjabini infection in animal reservoir hosts and questionnairing in residents at a village of hubei province].freshwater crabs (sinopotamon denticulatum) were examined for metacercariae. cats and dogs were also examined for paragonimus infection. questionnairing was carried out on health knowledge and behaviors among local residents in a village of baokang county, hubei province. results showed that the infection rate of paragonimus skrjabini metacercariae in sinopotamon denticulatum was 20.5% (46/214), with 15.6% (20/128) in a mining area and 30.2% (26/86) for the non-mining area respectively (chi2 = 6 ...200818637593
possible discovery of chinese lung fluke, paragonimus skrjabini in manipur, obtain more information about paragonimus species prevalent in manipur, india, hundreds of freshwater crabs, potamiscus manipurensis, were captured from mountain streams in the motbung mountains in senapati district, from december 1997 to january 1998. crab extracts were prepared by digestion, differential filtration, and sedimentation. the filtered sediments were critically examined under a stereomicroscope. isolated paragonimus metacercariae were used for morphological study and animal expe ...200617547053
distribution and clinical features of paragonimiasis skrjabini in three gorges reservoir region.paragonimiasis has previously been reported in the southwest provinces of china, including chongqing and sichuan. the construction of three gorges dam, which was begun in 1994, has resulted in substantial changes to the depth and the flow pattern of the yangtze river. to investigate epidemiology of the paragonimiasis, 724 people aged 2-49 years were selected and examined for paragonimus infection by intradermal test (idt), and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa). a survey of eating habits ...201222814214

preparation of colloidal gold immunochromatographic strip for detection of paragonimiasis skrjabini.paragonimiasis is a food-borne trematodiasis, a serious public health issue and a neglected tropical disease. paragonimus skrjabini is a unique species found in china. unlike paragonimiasis westermani, it is nearly impossible to make a definitive diagnosis for paragonimiasis skrjabini by finding eggs in sputum or feces. immunodiagnosis is the best choice to detect paragonimiasis skrjabini. there is an urgent need to develop a novel, rapid and simple immunoassay for large-scale screening patients ...201424643068
paragonimus skrjabini chen, 1959 (digenea: paragonimidae) and related species in eastern asia: a combined molecular and morphological approach to identification and taxonomy.a molecular and morphometric investigation is reported on the species complex of mammalian lungflukes of which paragonimus skrjabini chen, 1959 and p. miyazakii kamo, nishida, hatsushika & tomimura, 1961 are the best-known examples. this species complex (here called the p. skrjabini complex) is shown to be monophyletic using dna sequences from the nuclear its2 region and the mitochondrial cox1 gene. the latter marker permits the discrimination of populations, some previously named as distinct sp ...200515791397
development of an immunodiagnosis method using recombinant pscp for detection of paragonimus skrjabini infection in human.paragonimiasis skrjabini is a kind of zoonosis and prevalent in 16 provinces in china, such as chongqing, fujian, sichuan, and yunnan. however, sensitive and efficient diagnostic methods for the infection are limited. in order to provide a more convenient and simple method for serologic diagnosis, the recombinant p. skrjabini cysteine protease (pscp) was expressed, purified, and then used to develop an indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa) for detecting anti-pscp antibodies in human ...201727796563
