Basic scientific achievements

From 1984 to 2008 3417 samples of fish belonging to 10 families, 38 species; 833 samples of amphibia of 3 species; 33 samples of the turtle Emis orbicularis; 16 samples of the dice snake (Natrix tesselata) and 503 samples of leeches of 2 species were examined for protozoan blood parasites. In the blood of the examined animals 21 species of the blood parasites were found of which 14 species belonged to the Trypanosoma, 4 – to the gender Cryptobia, 1 – to the gender Hepatozoon, 1 – to the gender Haemogregarina, and 1- to the gender Filaria.

The process of multiple division (schizogony) of Trypanosoma carassii and Trypanosoma neveulemairei in the organism of the leech Hemiclepsis marginata was followed up.
