Analysis of the Study Area. Poyang Lake, with an area of km 2 in the flooding season and km 2 in the dry season, is the largest freshwater lake in China.

It is located along the mid-to. Schistosoma mansoni and S. haematobium are distributed throughout Africa; only S. haematobium is found in areas of the Middle East, and S.

japonicum is found in Indonesia and parts of China. Schistosoma japonicum is an important cause of intestinal schistosomiasis affecting up to 1 million people in P.R.

China and the Philippines (Steinmann et al., ), with a small focus in Indonesia (Garjito et al., ), while Schistosoma mekongi cause intestinal schistosomiasis among thousands of people in Cambodia and Lao PDR (Muth et al., ). japonicum is endemic in China and the Philippines, and is also found in Sulawesi, Indonesia.

mekongi is found in Cambodia and Laos. Current global status. Three Schizolepis species collected from the Lower Cretaceous layer of the Huolinhe Basin, Inner Mongolia, China are described. These fossils are Schizolepis longipetiolus Xu XH et Sun BN sp. nov., which is a new species, Schizolepis cf.

heilongjiangensis Zheng et Zhang, and Schizolepis neimengensis Deng. The new species is a well‐preserved female cone, slender and cylindrical in shape. Schistosoma is a genus of trematodes, commonly known as blood are parasitic flatworms responsible for a highly significant group of infections in humans termed schistosomiasis, which is considered by the World Health Organization as the second-most socioeconomically devastating parasitic disease (after malaria), with hundreds of millions infected worldwide.

Southern China; Parts of Southeast Asia and the Philippines, Laos; A recent focus of ongoing transmission has been identified in Corsica. How can I prevent schistosomiasis.

Avoid swimming or wading in freshwater when you are in countries in which schistosomiasis occurs. Swimming in the ocean and in chlorinated swimming pools is safe.

Drink safe. Schistosoma mansoni, S. japonicum, and S. haematobium are trematodes whose complex life cycles require an intermediate snail host. mansoni is found in the Caribbean, South America, the Middle East, and Africa.

japonicum is found in the Far East: Japan, China, and the Philippines. #### Summary points Schistosomiasis, or bilharzia, is a common intravascular infection caused by parasitic Schistosoma trematode worms.1 2 A systematic review and meta-analysis published in estimated that more than million people are infected across Africa, Asia, and South America, and close to million are at risk of infection.3 Meta-analyses have estimated that the current.

In China in the ’s, Mao recognized the problem of Schistosomiasis and decided to work towards eradication. He raised public awareness, and funded many public health projects. Mao’s efforts in the ’s helped curb schistosomiasis infection, but, today, urban China is under the assumption that Schistosomiasis is something of the past, when it is still very much a problem in rural China today 6.

Disease. Schistosoma japonicum is the only human blood fluke that occurs in China, Philippines, and Sri Lanka. It is the cause of schistosomiasis japonica, a disease that still remains a significant health problem especially in lake and marshland regions.

Schistosomiasis is a disease caused by a parasite worm that lives in certain types of freshwater snails. The parasite leaves the snail and enters the water where is can enter a person’s body through the skin when a person wades or swims in contaminated freshwater.

We followed people in Southwest China for up to five years. Participants were tested for Schistosoma japonicum infection in stool and seven standard measures of the liver and spleen were obtained using ultrasound to evaluate the relationship between schistosomiasis infection and ultrasound-detectable pathology, and the impact of targeted treatment.

There are three main types of schistosomiasis, caused by closely related organisms: (1) Japonica, or Eastern, schistosomiasis is caused by Schistosoma japonicum, found in Japan, southern China, the Philippines, Thailand, and Indonesia.(2) Manson’s, or intestinal, schistosomiasis is caused by S.

Schistosoma mansoni is one of the most abundant infectious agents of humankind. Its widespread distribution is permitted by the broad geographic range of susceptible species of the freshwater snail genus Biomphalaria that serve as obligatory hosts for its larval stages.

Schistosomiasis is a disease that is caused by parasites (genus Schistosoma) that enter humans by attaching to the skin, penetrating it, and then migrating through the venous system to the portal veins where the parasites produce eggs and eventually, the symptoms of acute or chronic disease (for example, fever, abdominal discomfort, blood in stools).Missing: China.

Schistosomiasis Definition Schistosomiasis, also known as bilharziasis or snail fever, is a primarily tropical parasitic disease caused by the larvae of one or more of five types of flatworms or blood flukes known as schistosomes.

The name bilharziasis comes from Theodor Bilharz, a German pathologist, who identified the worms in Description. Author Summary Schistosomiasis japonica, a zoonosis of over 40 different mammalian species, is endemic to China, the Philippines and Indonesia.

In China, water buffaloes have been shown to be major reservoir hosts, while in the Philippines, the smaller sub species (carabao) has been been considered unimportant in transmission, possibly due to the lack of sensitive copro-parasitological.Schistosoma [shis″- skis″to-so´mah] a genus of trematodes, including several species parasitic in the blood of humans and domestic animals.

The organisms are called schistosomes or blood flukes. Larvae (cercariae) enter the body of the host by way of the digestive tract, or through the skin from contact with contaminated water, and migrate in the.Geographic Range.

Schistosoma mansoni is found throughout Africa and South America, especially in Brazil, Venezuela, Surinam and Guyana. It also lives on several Caribbean islands such as Puerto Rico, St.
