Its main researches in the field of a helminthology are devoted to studying of geographical distribution of helminthic invasions, definition of a circle of potential owners of the wide tape-worm and a tapeworm armed. V. G. Gnezdilov inspected a large number of people in the different areas of the USSR, Sowing. To Korea and on the Kvantunsky peninsula on infectiousness intestinal protozoa, revealed patterns of relationship between dysenteric amoebas and an organism of the owner. On the basis of big actual material he made a hypothesis of adaptive modifications of protozoa of intestines of the person, in particular at a dysenteric amoeba. This concept was confirmed by the phenomena of variability of other species of protozoa (Entamoeba coli, Trichomonas hominis, Balantidium coli). B. G. Gnezdilov together with E. N. Pavlovsky developed the problem of parazitotsenoz which is of great importance for medicine. A number of works of V. G.
