The objective of this study was to investigate, through cross-sectional survey, the distribution, types and prevalence of gastro-intestinal parasites affecting stray dogs in and around Mathura, India. Freshly voided faecal samples of 108 identified, stray, non descript dogs of either sex and different age groups were collected and examined for coprological examination by direct faecal smear method; simple flotation and sedimentation techniques to detect parasitic oocysts and/or eggs.

With the aims to determine the infection frequency by tapeworms of Diphyllobothrium genus 30 samples from captive wild carnivores were analyzed. A 30% of the animal analyzed was positive to the infection. Whereas the family Procionidae has a high percentage of positivity (60%), Canidae have lower infection ratio (20-25%). The accuracy for the diagnosis of Diphylobothrium was made by the morphology of scolex, proglottids and eggs. This is the first report of the parasite presence in Argentine wild carnivores...

Studies have been made on fatty acid composition of 5 species of parasitic helminthes from fish, birds and mammals. As compared to the lipids from helminthes of endothermic animals (Diphylobothrium dendriticum and Toxascaris leonina), those from fish parasites (Eubothrium crassum, Triaenophorus nodulosus and Metechynorhynchus salmonis) are less saturated and contain higher amounts of penta- and hexaenic acids, acids of omega 3 type, being less rich in the content of stearic, oleic, dienic and omega 6 acids...

The author describes a case of imported diphylobothriosis in a Czechoslovak citizen who returned after a 6-month stay from Finland. The tapeworm Diphylobothrium latum is bound in its life cycle to aqueous crustaceans and fish. Man is infected by ingestion of inadequately thermally processed fish. The author draws attention to the possible import of this uncommon parasitosis.

From October 1975 to March 1976 an epidemiological survey was carried out in Anambra and Imo states of Nigeria to determine the rate of intestinal worm and protozoan infections in school children. A total of 1742 children, out of which 813 from the urban and 929 from the rural school were screened of intestinal helminths and 1699 were also examined for intestinal protozoan infections. Concentration methods HCL-Ether centrifugation technique and Heidenhain's iron-hematoxylin staining method respectively were adopted for the identification of helminth eggs and protozoal cysts...
