Studies have demonstrated the occurrence of gastropod mollusks Biomphalaria
The nine studies cover catalytic activity in transcripts from Schistosoma non-autonomous retro-transposons, mobile genetic elements of malaria vectors and other mosquitoes, retro-transposons in the genomes of the digenean parasitic trematodes Clonochis sinensis and Paragonimus westermani, endogenous retro-transposon sequences of the Schistosoma mansoni intermediate snail host Biomphalaria
glabrata, the transposon-mediated transgenis of mosquitoes, Schistosome long terminal repeat retro-transposons colonizing Schistosome genomes, Schistosome DNA transposons, and mobile genetic elements resident in hookworm genomes.

mansoni are endemic are affected by the presence of snails of the genera Biomphalaria
and Bulinus, respectively, in infested bodies of water.
Grande also used that information to find similar genes in the left-handed snail Biomphalaria
glabrata, the fresh-water host of the parasite that causes schistosomiasis.
mansoni (SLM, Pernambuco--Brazil) isolated from Biomphalaria
Cercariae of an Eygptian strain of S mansoni were obtained from SBSP/TBRI and used for infection immediately after shedding from Biomphalaria
The petroleum ether extract of the plant demonstrated molluscicidal activity against Biomphalaria
glabrata (Marston 1984).
Polymerase Chain Reaction and Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism of Cytocrome Oxidase Subunit I Used for differentiation of Brazilian Biomphalaria
species intermediate host of Schistosoma mansoni.
Entre los moluscos se registraron Biomphalaria
straminea y B.
Introduction and Spreading of Biomphalaria
straminea (Dunker, 1848) (Mollusca: Pulmonata: Planorbidae) in Guadeloupe, French West Indies.
Among many studies, Hoffman showed experimentally in 1927 that (Helisoma) Planorbina guadeloupensis (later denoted as Australorbis glabratus, and now as Biomphalaria
glabrata) was the snail intermediate host.
