Expert Quote

“Rat Lungworm, a disease that has sickened nearly 100 people on Hawaiʻi Island over the past decade, is caused by a parasitic nematode found in the pulmonary arteries of rats. It is commonly transmitted to humans when first-stage parasites in rat feces are eaten by snails or slugs, which then develop and are accidentally ingested by humans on unwashed produce or in water.”

Susan Jarvi, Ph.D.
Associate Professor, Pharmaceutical Sciences
