Abstract: The aim of the present study was to evaluate different acaricide treatments for the control of Boophilus microplus on field-kept dairy cattle in the state of Pernambuco, Brazil. The first phase of the experiment consisted of collecting the ingurgitated female Boophilus microplus directly from the hosts for attainment of larvae. After the attainment of larvae, the artificial infestation procedure began on the cattle, with larvae ages ranging from 7 to 14 days. On Day 0, animals were separated into 12 groups to receive the corresponding treatment: Abamectin; Ivermectin; Ivermectin LA; Amitraz; Amitraz + Ivermectin; Amitraz + Ivermectin LA; Amitraz + Abamectin; Association (Cypermethrin + Chlorpyrifos + Citronella); Association + Ivermectin; Association + Ivermectin LA; Association + Abamectin; and Control. Subsequent evaluations were made on post-treatment days +7, +14, +21, +28, +35, +42, +49, +56 and +63. Analyzing the post-treatment effectiveness per day, indices revealed considerable variation ranging from 0% to 96.63%. Such indices demonstrate the significant reduction in the number of ticks on the animals in some groups, especially in the Abamectin group. The analysis of the results demonstrates that the use of different avermectines can assist in the development of Boophilus microplus control programs, thereby reducing the number of acaricide applications and production costs related to ticks.

Abstract: Dirofilaria immitis is an important nematode parasite commonly known as heartworm. This filarioid is transmitted by culicid vectors and primarily affects dogs, but other animals may also become infected, such as wild carnivores, cats and humans. The aim of the present study was to assess the development of D. immitis larvae in different culicid populations under laboratory conditions. Adult females of populations of Aedes aegypti from the city of Recife (P1), the city of Campinas (P2) and the Rockefeller strain from the Centers for Disease Control (P3) and one population of Aedes albopictus from Recife (P4) were fed for two hours with infected dog blood containing 2,000 microfilariae/ml of D. immitis. After artificial feeding, the specimens were maintained under controlled conditions. Ten females from each population were dissected daily over 14 days. The infection ratio and vector efficiency index were calculated and D. immitis development from L1 to L3 was assessed. The larvae in P1, P2, P3 and P4 reached the third stage in 11, 10, 14 and 9 days, respectively. The vector efficiency index was 53.8%, 20.0%, 7.4% and 25.2% in P1, P2, P3 and P4, respectively. The findings demonstrate that D. immitis larvae develop in all culicid populations studied herein. Based on mosquito mortality, development time and VEI the A. albopictus population from Recife (P4) demonstrated the best performance as vector. This is the second report of D. immitis development in A. albopictus from Brazil. The present data reinforce the role of this species as vector of D. immitis in an area where greater importance has long been given to A. aegypti.

Abstract: cryptosporidiosis is an emerging parasitic disease that has been related in several mammal species, including the aquatic ones. this review covers the epidemiology infection by cryptosporidium spp. in aquatic mammals. the age of the animal, infecting dose and immunological state can influence on the clinical presentation, and when associated with other pathogen, can lead the animal to death. the water supply contamination is water supply is one of the major ways of the pathogen dissemination, which was being identified by different techniques of laboratorial analysis. the adequacy of sanitation structures, the use of appropriate method to inactivate the oocysts and the assurance of personal hygiene norms are some of the recommended way to minimize the dissemination of cryptosporidium among aquatic mammals.

Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz , 1999,
Abstract: Six hundred and eleven random-source dogs (338 male, 273 female) one year of age or older, from six sections of the city of Recife, Pernambuco, were examined antemortem for circulating microfilariae Dirofilaria immitis and Dipetalonema reconditum adult heartworm (D. immitis) antigen, and examined postmortem for adult heartworms. The prevalence of heartworm infection was 2.3% (14/611), as determined by necropsy for adult worms, and 1% (6/611) had circulating microfilariae of D. immitis; thus, 57.1% of the heartworm-infected dogs had occult infections. The results of serological testing indicated that 1.3% (8/611) of the dogs were positive for adult heartworm antigen. A total of 42 (6.9%) of the dogs had microfilariae of D. reconditum; 40 of these had only D. reconditum and two additional dogs had microfilariae of both species, D. immitis and D. reconditum.

Abstract: The goal of this research was to analyze the ectoparasitic species from domestic cats in Jo o Pessoa city, Paraíba state, Brazil. A total of 432 cats of various breeds and ages, of both genders, were included. All animals were submitted to physical and parasitological examination through skin inspection and an otoscopic exam was realized. Parasites were collected in vials containing 70% alcohol for subsequent mounting and identifi cation according to specific keys. The results showed that 62.7% (271/432) of animals were parasitized by one or more species. The ectoparasitic species observed were Ctenocephalides felis (27.3%), Lynxacarus radovskyi (26.2%), Otodectes cynotis (17.4%), Felicola subrostratus (9.7%), Notoedres cati (2.1%) and Rhipicephalus sanguineus (1.6%). The results showed that ectoparasites are a common and important skin disease in cats, and variables such breed, age, and sex did not show any influence on parasitism.

Biotemas , 2007,
Abstract: The goal of this research was to verify the occurrence of Cryptosporidium spp. oocysts in the water consumption and supply of pools used by Antillean manatee (Trichechus manatus) in captivity. Six samples were collected from the pool's supply system (at the beach), water used for manatee consumption, mineral water used in the preparation of artificial milk formulas offered to orphan manatee calves, also used in permanent maintenance pools in the visitation area, and water utilized in the rehabilitation area, where calves of all ages were kept. Before the water samples were processed, each sample was submitted to a filtration process. The diagnosis of the parasite was obtained by Kinyoun technique and the positive samples were submitted to the Direct Immunoflorescence Test. The results showed the presence of Cryptosporidium spp. oocysts in 66.67% (4/6) of the samples from the water supply system and pool, with eight to 56 oocysts per liter. There was evidence that the water used in the maintenance of the Antillean manatees could be an important medium for hydric transmission of Cryptosporidium spp. and that it may be a predisposing factor to the occurrence of cryptosporidiosis in Antillean manatees in captivity.

Abstract: El objetivo de este artículo fue la investigación de la contaminación por huevos de Ancylostoma spp y Toxocara spp en el suelo del patio o jardín de 149 residencias y del área de recreo de dos escuelas situadas en la comunidad de Córrego da Fortuna no Bairro de Dois Irmáos, en Recife-PE (BRASIL). Las muestras fueron recogidas durante el invierno y verano y procesadas mediante la técnica de centrifugo-fluctuación, utilizando solución de sulfato de zinc al 33%. De las muestras de suelo de residencias, 4,69% (07/ 149) fueron positivas para huevos de Ancylostoma spp y 8,73% (13/149) para huevos de Toxocara spp. Las muestras provenientes de las dos escuelas fueron negativas para huevos de nematodos. Los hallazgos muestran que la exposición de las personas por helmintos con potencial zoonótico, se demostró mayor en el ambiente domiciliar de que fuera deste ambiente This study was carried out to investigate the contamination of soil garden, back yard from 149 houses and two public schools playgrounds areas with Ancylostoma spp and Toxocara spp eggs from the Córrego da Fortuna community, Dois Irmaos area in City of Recife-PE, Brazil. The samples were collected during summer and winter and analyzed by centrifugal flotation technique by using of 33% Zinc sulfate solution. The results showed Ancylostoma spp. and Toxocara spp eggs in 4.69% (07/ 149) and 8.73% (13/149) of samples respectively from garden, back yard, but eggs of nematodes were not recovered from public schools playgrounds. The study indicates that exposure of human to helminthes with zoonotic potential may be higher indoor than outdoor
