Baylisascaris Procyonis Roundworm Seroprevalence Among Wildlife Rehabilitators, United States And Canada, 2012–2015
Pubmed Central ID:PMC5189140
Description:Baylisascaris procyonis roundworms can cause potentially fatal neural larva migrans in many species, including humans. However, the clinical spectrum of baylisascariasis is not completely understood. We tested 347 asymptomatic adult wildlife rehabilitators for B. procyonis antibodies; 24 were positive, suggesting that subclinical baylisascariasis is occurring among this population.
