Studies on the lung fluke paragonimus westermani diploid type in the northern part of hyogo prefecture japan vii. experimental oral infection of a red fox with the metacercariae



Studies on the lung fluke paragonimus westermani diploid type in the northern part of hyogo prefecture japan vii. experimental oral infection of a red fox with the metacercariae



Japanese Journal of Parasitology 35(5): 427-432



As a part of a series of ecological studies of P. westermani-diploid type in the northern part of Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, an experimental infection of a red fox (Vulpes vulpes japonica) with the metacercariae was performed. As a result, it was demonstrated that the metacercariae easily infected the fox and reached sexual maturity in it. Hence, it became clear that the fox, as well as raccoon dogs and wild boars, also may serve as a natural definitive host of the diploid type of P. westermani.
