  • activities of naphthoquinones against aedes aegypti linnaeus 1762 diptera culicidae vector of dengue and Biomphalaria glabrata say 1818 intermediate host of schistosoma mansoni
    Acta Tropica, 2009

    Abstract:

    Larvicidal (against Aedes aegypti Linnaeus, 1762) and molluscicidal (against Biomphalaria glabrata Say, 1818) activities of several natural and synthetic naphthoquinones were measured, with significant results. The best larvicidal compound is 3-bromojuglone, while the better molluscicides are 2-bromo- and 3-bromo-5-acetoxy-1,4-naphthoquinones together with the 3-bromo-5-methoxy derivative. The present results reinforce the potential use of substituted hydroxyquinones, their salts and halogenated quinones as very promising compounds against 4th instar larves of Aedes aegypti, the vector of dengue and against adult snail of Biomphalaria glabrata.

  • Comparison of NMRI Schistosoma mansoni Infection in Three Susceptible Laboratory Albino Strains of Biomphalaria glabrata.
    Journal of Parasitology, 2019
    Co-Authors: John T. Sullivan

    Abstract:

    ABSTRACT Albino strains of Biomphalaria glabrata that are compatible with Schistosoma mansoni are commonly used to investigate snail-schistosome interactions, but whether they are all equally compa…

  • Tissue invasion of laboratory-reared Biomphalaria glabrata by a harpacticoid copepod.
    Journal of Invertebrate Pathology, 2011
    Co-Authors: John T. Sullivan, John T. Yeung

    Abstract:

    Abstract Copepods were observed in the tissues of 3 of 23 Biomphalaria glabrata snails examined histologically. All were heavily encapsulated by hemocytes and were dead. The copepods are most likely members of the order Harpacticoida, based on external morphology. This tissue invasion appears to be accidental rather than symbiotic or predatory, but could be a cause of observed mortality in laboratory snail colonies.
