Disease relevance of Diphyllobothrium


High impact information on Diphyllobothrium


Biological context of Diphyllobothrium

  • We report here a likely case of Diphyllobothrium nihonkaiense contracted in France through the consumption of a Pacific salmon imported from Canada. The species diagnosis was made by molecular analysis of two mitochondrial genes (COI & ND3) [6].
