new videotape

Thu Jun 6 09:30:16 EST 1996

A new videotape details parelaphostrongylosis, the debilitating 
neurologic disease of domestic and wild ungulates.  This disease is 
caused by the migration of Parelaphostrongylus tenuis in unusual 
hosts.  Dramatic videotape is presented of moose, goats, and llamas 
with naturally occurring neurologic disease caused by P. tenuis.  The 
life cycle is detailed in white-tailed deer and in unusual hosts 
using animation to reveal the involvement of the parasite in the 
pathogenesis of "moose sickness."  Living first stage larvae, 
molluscan intermediate hosts and distributions maps illustrate the 
epidemiology of the parasite.  Diagnostic procedures and control of 
the helminth also are emphasized.  It is a 20 minute production by 
M.W. Lankester and A.K. Prestwood.
