She explained that farm animals exposed in areas with the presence of the intermediate host snail called Oncomelania
species will most likely be infected by the disease.
Very few data on snail host parasite interaction have been recovered, and these were mainly focused on Oncomelania
hupensis quadrasi, due to the utmost interest in the nationwide control of schistosomiasis caused by Schistosoma japonicum.
The Schistosoma japonicum cercariae used in experiments were obtained from Oncomelania
hupensis-infected snails (Jiangsu Institute of Parasitic Disease, China).
Molluscicidal activity of the plant Eupatorium adenophorum against Oncomelania
hupensis, the intermediate host snail of Schistosoma japonicum [J].
in lowland rice (Stevens, 2003) and the intermediate host of Schistosoma sp., the freshwater snail Oncomelania
hupensis (Quanbin et al., 1992).
LAMP assay was used to detect Schistosoma japonicum infection in pooled samples of field-collected Oncomelania
in China and they constructed a transmission of schistosomiasis risk map using ArcMap, based on the positive proportion, which will be a surveillance and response strategies guide in high risk areas .

. As regard the season wise prevalence of snails, it was the highest during summer followed by autumn then winter, whereas the lowest during spring.
(7) Schistosoma japonicum is spread by the freshwater snail Oncomelania
and it is responsible for intestinal and hepatosplenic schistosomal infections in Indonesia, Peoples Republic of China, and the Philippines.
(2010) found that as winter temperatures continue to rise due to global warming, Oncomelania
hupensis (the intermediate host of Schistosoma japonicum in China) may increase its range, thereby spreading schistosomiasis to the northern part of China.
