Associations of Cestoda with chemical compounds

  • Although some studies on the metabolism of glucose in several tapeworms are available, the proteins that mediate its uptake and distribution in their tissue have not been identified [16].
  • A new anthelmintic drug, albendazole, has been tested in a multicenter double-blind placebo controlled study in 392 patients from France and West Africa in children and adults with single or mixed infections caused by roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, threadworms and tapeworms [17].
  • Only S. impar lives in the Mediterranean, and is equally infested by both cestodes, whereas both species occur in the Atlantic and each of them is preferentially infested by 1 species of cestode [18].
  • Immunocytochemical localization of serotonin (5-HT) in the nervous system of the hydatid organism, Echinococcus granulosus (Cestoda, Cyclophyllidea) [19].
  • Secondly, all subjects were treated with niclosamide and a purgative and the tapeworms were recovered [20].
