A Glance at Taenia Saginata Infection, Diagnosis, Vaccine, Biological Control and Treatment

Author(s): Claudio V. Silva, Julia M. Costa-Cruz.

Abstract:

The Taenia saginata taeniasis-cysticercosis complex is a cosmopolitan zoonosis of great medical, veterinary and economic importance where humans play an important role as the carrier of adult stage and cattle as carrier of the larval stage of the parasite. Here we reviewed aspects concerning diagnosis, vaccine development, biological control and treatment of the disease.
