Abstract

The original version of this article contained a mistake. The first paragraph of the BResults and discussion^ section should read instead: All samples were positive for the COI gene. Moreover, all DNA samples extracted from T. solium proglottids after Tso31 nested PCR gave a single amplification product of 234 bp. In addition, all seven DNA samples extracted from T. multiceps proglottids also amplified a product of 234 bp. Tso31 nested PCR did not amplify DNA obtained from proglottids of T. omisa, T. hydatigena, T. pisiformis, and T. taeniaeformis. Furthermore, Tso31 of T. solium study specimens (accession numbers MK421576, MK421577, MK421578, MK421579, MK421580, MK421581, MK421582, MK421583, MK421584 MK421585) was 100% identical with sequences of T. solium Tso31 registered in GenBank (accession number AY752889). Meanwhile, Tso31 from T. solium and Tm31 of T. multiceps (accession numbers MH990639, MH990640, MH990641, MH990642, MH990643, MH990644 MH973700) had 91.9% similarity between their nucleotide sequences.
