- ... Baylisascaris transfuga is a roundworm that has been reported worldwide in most bear species. In mammals and possibly humans, the larvae of B. transfuga can migrate in the tissues of aberrant hosts with larva migrans syndrome. The current study was performed to identify B. transfuga in faecal samples from free-ranging brown bears in the Tatra Mountains National Park in southern Poland. A commercia ...

- ... Ascarid larva migrans syndrome (ascarid LMS) is caused by ascarid roundworms including Ascaris suum. In East Asia, ascarid LMS has been considered as a food‐borne disease in adulthood who has the dietary habitat of consuming raw or lightly cooked meat and organ meats. To evaluate the potential risk of A. suum infection from these foods, Ascaris specific real‐time PCR was developed. The assay could ...
