[studies on the influence of ph on the development of eggs and hatching of syphacia obvelata seurat, 1916 larvae and aspiculuris tetraptera schultz, 1924 larvae (author's transl)]. 197945378
eradication of the pinworm syphacia obvelata from an animal unit by anthelmintic therapy.thiabendazole incorporated in the diet at a rate of 0.1%, fed to all animals over a period of 3 months, successfully eliminated the parasite from the colony. samples taken 12 months after treatment were still negative for the parasite. during the period between the discovery of the organism and the preparation of the diet a course of piperazine citrate was administered at a rate of 2 g/litre in the drinking water in order to limit the spread of the infection.1979158107
the interaction between entamoeba histolytica and syphacia obvelata infection in mice.mice naturally infected with syphacia obvelata were challenged intracaecally with entamoeba histolytica trophozoites. they showed a higher level of amoebic infection than mice without worms. mice with the heaviest syphacia infection were the most susceptible to amoebic infection. it appears that a concomitant infection with helminthic parasites residing in the caecum alters the outcome of an amoebic infection.1978216325
effects of aspiculuris tetraptera dn syphacia obvelata on exploratory behavior of an inbred mouse strain.sixty c57bl/6 male mice were treated with an anthelmintic for 2 weeks to free them of pinworms. they were then divided into six groups. two groups were infected with aspiculuris tetraptera, two groups with syphacia obvelata, and two groups were left uninfected as controls. at intervals of 2 and 4 weeks after infection, the mice were tested for exploratory activity in a barriered field apparatus. following the second test, each mouse was necropsied to determine presence of nematodes and to estima ...1977557704
syphacia obvelata in the mongolian gerbil (meriones unguiculatus): natural occurrence and experimental transmission.an adult from a research colony and a litter of 5-week-old mongolian gerbils (meriones unguiculatus) from a pet store were found to have pinworms identified as syphacia obvelata. the infected gerbils were allowed to cohabitate with uninfected gerbils. similarly, infected gerbils were caged with uninfected mice and infected mice with uninfected gerbils. results of these studies showed that syphacia obvelata can be transmitted from gerbil to gerbil, gerbil to mouse, and mouse to gerbil.1978564989
anthelmintic control of concurrent hymenolepis nana and syphacia obvelata infections in the mouse with uredofos.tests were made to determine the efficacy of uredofos in either the diet or drinking water for controlling induced hymenolepis nana and naturally acquired syphacia obvelata infections in the mouse. four levels of administration (50, 75, 100, and 125 parts per million) were used in a 6-day drugdiet assay. consistent removal of hymenolepis nana occurred only at 125 parts per million, whereas removal syphacia obvelata was complete at all levels. the disodium salt of uredofos was given in the drinki ...1978567262
control of oxyurids in mice using thiabendazole.mice with a natural infection of syphacia obvelata and aspiculuris tetraptera were continuously medicated with 0.1% thiabendazole in the diet. no oxyurids were found in test animals after 24 days of treatment though control animals remained infected. growth rates in treated animals increased. 2 generations of mice were studied and, although overall production fell by 1.45%, the use of this drug in total eradication of the worms is suggested.1978569226
anthelmintic 1-cinnamamido-2,4-imidazolidinediones.a series of 1-(substituted cinnamamido)-2,4-imidazolidinediones has been prepared from the corresponding cinnamoyl chlorides and 1-amino-2,4-imidazolidinedione hydrochloride in pyridine. these compounds possess a significant degree of anthelmintic activity against the mouse pinworm syphacia obvelata. the most active compounds are those substituted with halogen or cyano groups.1976943002
the influence of filter top caging on the transmission of pinworm infections in mice.the effectiveness of filter top cages in preventing infection of mice with pinworms, aspiculuris tetraptera and syphacia obvelata, was investigated by introducing mice from a pathogen-free colony into a colony in which both types of pinworms were enzootic. half of the pathogen-free mice were maintained in filter top cages, while the remainder were held in similar cages without filters. all mice thus introduced were killed and examined after 3-8 week exposure periods. no pinworm were recovered fr ...1976988434
