Abstract
The present survey of enteric infections in the Eskimo population of the lower Kuskokwim River area in southwestern Alaska was initiated in August 1955. Information desired included: (1) prevalence of diarrhea and of bacterial and parasitic agents, (2) age groups involved, (3) time of year of occurrence, and (4) identity of bacterial and parasitic agents. Procedures and techniques have already been given. In general, a single fecal specimen per individual (human and canine) was examined. Specimens were cultured in the field, and suspected bacterial pathogens were isolated and held for further study in the Anchorage laboratory. Specimens for parasitological examination were placed in MIF fluid and held until return to the laboratory, with examinations made at a later date. Ten villages were visited between August 1955 and September 1956, which were in coastal, tundra, and river locations. Populations ranged between 48 and 650 per village, with an estimated total of 2,378. Nine fish camps, located over a 12-mile stretch on the Kuskokwim River between Bethel and Napakiak, were visited in August 1956. The people who live in these camps for two to three months each summer come from coastal and tundra villages. Camp populations ranged between 24 and 160, with a total of approximately 638. Interviews were held in 312 village dwellings during August-November, 1955 and July-September, 1956; and in 96 fish camp tents during August, 1956. Interviewing was started at one end of the village or fish camp and carried out progressively in every occupied house or tent in the community, with exceptions in the two largest villages, where about 80 per cent of the dwellings were visited.

Abstract
The survey which the Arctic Health Research Center is carrying on is concerned with both the bacteriological and parasitological aspects of enteric infections in an Eskimo population of the lower Kuskokwim River area in southwestern Alaska. The purpose of the survey is to determine (1) the prevalence of reported diarrhea and actual infections, (2) the age groups involved, (3) the time of year of occurrence, and (4) the bacterial and parasitic agents involved. The survey will be extended to other Alaskan areas and will also include other native groups.

Abstract
An investigation of a possible relationship between Diphyllobothrium (fish tapeworm) infection and microcytic anaemia among Eskimos was carried out during 1957–1958 at the village of Hooper Bay in western Alaska. Such infections did not contribute to anaemia in residents of this region, a finding in agreement with those of TÖTTERMAN 1947 in Finland. Species of diphyllobothriid cestodes recorded from the lower Kuskokwim River region are listed, and other helminths recorded from man in this area are briefly discussed. Schistocephalus solidus (Mueller 1776) is reported from man, apparently for the first time.

Abstract
Labrador, a previously unsurveyed area of Canada, has been sampled for human intestinal parasites. Four hundred and one asymptomatic volunteers between 1 and 72 years of age, including Inuit, Naskapi and whites, were examined during the summer of 1977. They harboured: Entamoeba coli, E. histolytica, E. hartmanni, Giardia lamblia and Diphyllobothrium sp. The infection rates are considerably lower than those found in other studies of Northern Canadian communities.
