Fasciola hepatica is a parasite of herbivorous mammals and humans. Distribution is worldwide and is dependent upon lymnaeid snails as an intermediate host.

Fasciola hepatica is a liver fluke that infects million of people and causes great economical loss in animal production. To date a % effective vaccine has not been developed and the disease. Galba truncatula, an amphibious freshwater lymnaeid snail that serves as the main intermediate host of Fasciola hepatica in Europe. The lifecycle of Fasciola hepatica. Fasciola hepatica occurs in the liver of a definitive host and its lifecycle is indirect. Definitive hosts of the fluke Clade: Trematoda. Human fascioliasis is usually recognized as an infection of the bile ducts and liver, but infection in other parts of the body can occur. In the early (acute) phase, symptoms can occur as a result of the parasite’s migration from the intestines to and through the liver. Symptoms can include gastrointestinal problems such as nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain/tenderness. Fasciola hepatica egg in an unstained wet mount (x magnification): F. hepatica eggs are broadly ellipsoidal, operculated, and measure – μm by 60–90 μm. (CDC Photo: DPDx) The standard way to be sure a person is infected with Fasciola is by seeing the parasite. This is usually done by finding Fasciola eggs in stool (fecal) specimens examined under a microscope.
The Egg - The eggs of Fasciola hepatica are operculated and average μm in length and 75 μm in width. Follow me to a labeled images of Fasciola hepatica. History: Eggs of Fasciola hepatica have been found in mummies, showing that human infection . Abstract. Primary and secondary infections of F. hepatica in mice were compared to determine how prior exposure to the parasite affected host response. Mice with primary parenchymal Fasciola infections initially had hemorrhagic tun nels filled with inflam matory cells and connective tissue. These lesions were progressive and became most severe. RATS infected orally with metacercariae of the liver fluke Fasciola hepatica develop a partial resistance to oral challenge. This resistance occurs when the sensitising flukes have reached and are. Disease - Disease - Host-parasite relationships: In the context of communicable disease, the host-parasite relationship must be considered not only with respect to the individual host-parasite interaction but also in terms of the interrelationship between the host and parasite populations, as well as those of any other host species involved.
