Gigantocotyle explanatum is one of neglected amphistome parasite infecting the bile duct of water buffalo (Ichikawa et al.
The Gigantocotyle explanatum has economic importance in ruminants but presently no reliable methods are available to identify and differentiate this parasite from other amphistomes.
Hematological profiles and bile biochemical analysis in non-infected and Gigantocotyle explanatum infected buffaloes as detected by different methods.
Epidemiology of Gigantocotyle explanatum in naturally infected buffaloes.
