Nematode

nematode

infection by the nematode ascaris lumbricoides and is characterised by an early pulmonary phase related to larval migration and a later, prolonged intestinal phase. Adult worms are 15-40 cm in length and maintain themselves in the lumen of the small intestine. Infection occurs after ingesting eggs contained in contaminated food or more commonly, by transmission to the mouth by the hands after contact with contaminated soil. Treatment is with mebendazole or pyrantel pamoate.

Re: What is the difference between biological age and physiologi

... age. Establishing physiological age, especially in humans, is purely subjective because it's based on how someone looks or functions. Research in nematode worms could lead to the development of human bio-markers for aging, allowing us to track how we're withstanding the tests of time.

Agriculture and Microbiology come together (Research Prjct)

... I will separate the earthworms between buckets and moisten the soil so they can dig in, maybe loosen it up before I put them in. And if I get the nematodes I'm guessing they will keep the lady bud population in check, so that I don't get a house full. But the lady bugs will keep mites and stuff ...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

... research is revealing this showing even in eukaryotic life forms, as more animal genomes are sequenced. Evidence of this is the example of the Nematode that I have referred to. So this similarity of genetic information has negated the original Darwinian tree. What is now emerging is more like ...

Re: Determine number of species in a country

... and more and more data is coming in. However, we are well short of answering that question, even with the latest techniques. How many species of nematode worms are present in a sample of soil? A very large number. But it takes a nematologist and many years work to answer even that simple a question. ...
