The paper describes the variability of the NADH dehydrogenase sequences of Echinococcus
multilocularis from 4 fox isolates in Poland, in comparison with the previously described
genetic variants of this
species. Polish isolate was more similar to the isolate from Japan than to the genetic variants M1
and M2, both of
which are found in Europe. The level of variability observed within ND1 sequences of E.
comparable with the variability reported for some pairs of most similar strains of E.
granulosus (G1/G2, G2/G3, G1/G3, G6/G7).
KEY WORDS: Echinococcus multilocularis, partial ND1 sequences, genetic
