Abstract

Research on the role of parasites through contamination on human being and wildlife animals remains largely undersudied in Malaysia. This survey was conducted to identify gastrointestinal helminths found in the host of family Muridae from five different localities and to compile literatures on zoonotic diseases pertaining to gastroinstestinal helminths based on published literatures. The samplings were conducted at Bako National Park, Ku bah National Park, Ma tang Wildlife Centre, Tanjung Datu National Park and Uni mas Arboretum from June 2013 until April 2014 with three to seven consecutive days of sampling with 2300 (total number of traps x total days of sampli11g) sampling efforts. A total of 31 rodents were trapped and examined for gastrointestinal helminths. There were 187 individuals of helminths that were discovered with member of Class Nematoda and Cestoda. Nematodes and cestodes were known to have potential zoonotic implications to human. This study provides new information to enhance our understanding about the emergence and management of potential zoonotic diseases in Malaysia.
