Gene context of Opisthorchis

  • B10 mice were immunized with an Opisthorchis viverrini somatic extract and then their responses were analyzed [14].
  • Molecular characterization and differentiation of opisthorchiid trematodes of the species Opisthorchis felineus (Rivolta, 1884) and Metorchis bilis (Braun, 1790) using polymerase chain reaction [15].
  • Light and scanning electron micrographs of Opisthorchis viverrini, Haplorchis taichui, H. pumilio, A Phaneropsolus bonnei, and Prosthodendrium molenkampi eggs were studied [16].
