  • response to cox human Balantidiasis in iran wild boars or not
    Trends in Parasitology, 2005
    Co-Authors: Shahram Solaymanimohammadi, M Rezaian, Ali M Anwar

    Abstract:

    In this issue of Trends in Parasitology, Cox draws particular attention to the possibility that the camel is the most important reservoir host for human Balantidiasis in Iran and concludes that ‘it seems more likely that human infections would be acquired from these animals than from wild boars’. Human Balantidiasis is moderately common in warm climates and is usually sporadic in cooler areas. In some parts of the world – Papua New Guinea, for example, where hog raising is common and hygiene standards are suboptimal – human infections are frequently seen [1,2].

  • human Balantidiasis in iran an unresolved enigma
    Trends in Parasitology, 2005
    Co-Authors: Shahram Solaymanimohammadi, M Rezaian, Ali M Anwar

    Abstract:

    Balantidium coli (Malmsten, 1857) (Ciliophora: Balantiidae) is the largest protozoan and the only ciliate parasite to infect humans. Infection with this parasite is not common in humans, and only 1000 cases had been reported before 1980. Its presence has been reported in parts of the world as far north as Sweden, Finland and Northern Russia, and the highest prevalence rates are in tropical and subtropical regions. Estimates of worldwide prevalence are usually <1%, although higher rates are reported in hyperendemic areas and in some residential institutions [1].
