    Parasitol Res 113:1185-94. 2014
    ..Indeed, these results could assist in determining the appropriate balance between the development of water resource projects and schistosomiasis control in Egypt. ..

    Iman F Abou-El-Naga
    Medical Parasitology Department, Faculty of Medicine, Alexandria University, Alexandria, Egypt
    J Biosci 38:665-72. 2013
    ..In addition, the determination of the genome sequence for Biomphalaria alexandrina and the use of modern technology will allow for the study of the host-parasite relationship at a molecular level. ..
  3. ncbi request reprint Defense response of susceptible and resistant Biomphalaria alexandrina snails against Schistosoma mansoni infection
    Iman F Abou-El-Naga
    Medical Parasitology Department, Faculty of Medicine, Alexandria University, Egypt
    Rev Biol Trop 60:1195-204. 2012
    ..It seems that B. alexandrina snails respond more or less similar to B. glabrata. The results also proved that the immune response of the internal defense system increased with increasing the number of the inherited resistant genes...
  4. ncbi request reprint Inheritance of Schistosoma mansoni infection incompatibility in Biomphalaria alexandrina snails
    Iman F Abou El Naga
    Department of Parasitology, Faculty of Medicine, Alexandria University, Alexandria, Egypt
    Mem Inst Oswaldo Cruz 105:149-54. 2010
    ..On increasing the percentage of resistant parent snails, the percentage of resistant progeny increased, while cercarial production in their susceptible progeny decreased...

    Iman F Abou-El-Naga
    Medical Parasitology Department, Faculty of Medicine, University of Alexandria, Alexandria, Egypt
    Parasitol Int 60:247-54. 2011
    ..The results demonstrated that if Biomphalaria glabrata was reintroduced and adapted to the local environment in Egypt, it would have important epidemiologic impacts that would have a serious effect on the health of Egyptian people...
  6. pmc Genetic variation between Biomphalaria alexandrina snails susceptible and resistant to Schistosoma mansoni infection
    Suzanne M F El-Nassery
    Medical Parasitology Department, Faculty of Medicine, University of Alexandria, Alexandria, Egypt
    Biomed Res Int 2013:160320. 2013
    ..The ability to determine resistant markers in Biomphalaria alexandrina snails could potentially lead to further studies that use refractory snails as agents to control the spread of schistosomiasis...
