Abstract

The objective of this study was to observe the development, distribution, and infection density ofTaenia saginata metacestodes in Bali cattle. Three Bali cattle were experimentally infected with T. saginataeggs which were collected from taeniasis patients. The experimental animal was inoculated with : i)1000,00 T. saginata; ii) 500,000 eggs; and iii) 1,000,000 eggs, respectivelly 100,000 (cattle 1), 500,000(cattle 2), and 1,000,000 (cattle 3) T. saginata eggs, respectively. To observe the development of cysticerci,all cattle were slaughtered at 24 weeks post infection. To observe their distribution and density, slicingwas done to the cattle?s tissues. The study results showed that cysts were found distributed to all muscletissues and some visceral organs such as heart, diaphragm, lungs, and kidney of the cattle infected with100,000 and 500,000 T. saginata eggs. Density of the cyst was in the range of 11 to 95 cysts per 100 gramsof tissue. The highest density was noted in the heart (58/100 grams) and in diaphragm (55/100 grams).This study has confirmed that T. saginata eggs derived from taeniasis patient in Bali, if infected to Balicattle can develop and spread to all muscle tissues and some visceral organs. From this study it wasconcluded that it is necessary to include the heart in the meat inspection at slaughter house for possibilityof T. saginata cyst infection.$?

Abstract

Cysticercosis zoonotic parasitic disesase caused by Taenia solium larva, is a major public healthproblem. Cysticercosis results from the development of larval tapeworms in humans harboring adult T.solium or from ingesting soil containing eggs shed in the feces of humans, in areas where there are nolatrines. Humans are accidental intermediate hosts and pigs are the normal intermediate hosts. Clinicallythey are most serious when located in the central nervous system or in the eye where they persist formonths to years. Cysticercosis occurs worldwide primarily in developing country where pigs are raised,pork consumed and poor sanitation allows pigs’ access to human faeces. The occurance of the diseases isexpected to increase in relation to the growing demand for pork in those countries. In Indonesia cyticercosisis still a very important health problem, especially in Bali and Papua. The majority of the populations inBali and Papua are Hindus and Protestants/Catholics, respectively, so pork widely consumed in thoseislands. This brief review summarizes the present situation and problems of cysticercosis in animal inBali and Papua. Epidemiological data of the diseases were obtained from several sources.
