Abstract

Various types of echinococcosis foci were detected in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic: steppe zone foci with sheep pattern circulation dominating, where invasion is transmitted according to scheme: sheep–dogs attached to flocks; forest lowland and forest-steppe zones with pig pattern of echinococcosis circulating, where invasion is transmitted according to scheme: pigs–dogs. In steppe zone foci cases of echinococcosis in humans are regularly recorded and a large stratum of seropositive subjects was revealed by the indirect hemagglutination and latex agglutination tests. In second type foci only single cases of human echinococcosis were observed and low seropositive stratum was detected. Complex of antiechinococcosis measures conforming to different foci types was developed.<<<More Information>>>(requires paid membership)
