About Taenia asiatica
The cestode Taenia asiatica, also known as Asian taenia or Asian tapeworm, is a parasite of humans and pigs that is thought to be restricted to Asia. Humans contract infection by eating eating raw or undercooked meat and this causes intestinal taeniasis which is usually asymptomatic.
