The laboratory has been operating since the establishment of the institute, and studies the epizootology of parasitoses, patterns of formation and functioning of parasitic systems and their individual components in natural agricultural biocenoses, and the influence of natural and anthropogenic factors on dynamics of animals infested by the most economically and socially significant parasitoses. 

New data were obtained on the epizootology of more than 70 nosologic units of parasitic diseases of agricultural and game animals, birds and pond fish.

We have studied their distribution, seasonal and age dynamics, ecology of pathogens and intermediate hosts, routes of infection, and influence of conditions for keeping animals on their infestation by parasitosis, and established reasonable terms for preventive measures. 

The helminthological situation in specialized industrial farms and complexes for beef, pork and milk production, and for raising heifers for reproduction has been studied, and recommendations have been developed for prevention of infection with parasites at these farms. 

A forecast of the epizootic situation for main helminthiases in the country is developed and submitted to the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia every year. 

The Laboratory monitors the epizootic situation of main parasitic diseases of pigs and cage-raised fur bearing animals; tests antiparasitic drugs and develops methods of their use in pig breeding and large-scale fur farming; carries out research and development of sanitary and parasitological methods for disinfecting livestock wastes and manure in industrial farms and tests comprehensive measures to combat parasitosis as applied to farms with different maintenance technologies and different geographical zones; and also develops standards, and norms for time expenditure, material resources and prices for diagnostic studies and preventive antiparasitic measures. 

The Laboratory has studied the epizootic situation of parasitosis in industrial complexes and specialized farms for production of pork and developed schemes of antiparasitic treatments that ensure health improvement of pigs with isosporiasis, eimeriosis, balantidiasis, ascariasis, trichocephalosis, esophagostomosis and hematopinosis throughout the entire period of their breading. 

The parasitological situation and environmental impact of waste from pig farms and complexes were assessed. 

OST (industry standards) 9388-002-00008064-2000 were improved and compiled for methods of laboratory diagnostics of nematodiasis in pigs.

New data on epizootology have been obtained, and measures for control and prevention of eimeriosis, isosporiasis, otoacariasis, sarcoptoidosis and toxascaridosis of cage-raised fur bearing animals and opisthorchiasis of carnivores have been optimized and mastered in production.
