  • enteric
  • The presence of diarrhea, after the appropriate epidemiologic exposure, should make the clinician consider the possibility of an enteric protozoal infection. (thecardiologyadvisor.com)
  • This study describes the epidemiology of enteric protozoa in the state of New South Wales and incorporates spatial analysis to describe their distribution. (jphres.org)
  • Laboratory and clinical records from four public hospitals in Sydney for 910 patients, who tested positive for enteric protozoa over the period January 2007 - December 2010, were identified, examined and analysed. (jphres.org)
  • This research is significant since it provides the most recent epidemiological update on the common enteric protozoa affecting Australians. (jphres.org)
  • It reveals that enteric protozoa cause considerable disease burden in high risk city dwellers, and provides the evidence base for development of targeted interventions for their prevention and control in high risk populations. (jphres.org)
  • Few epidemiological studies have shown that enteric infections are associated with exacerbations of ulcerative colitis (UC). (ecco-ibd.eu)
  • helminth infections
  • Although hookworms, Ascaris lumbricoides , Trichuris trichiura and Hymenolepis nana were observed, the majority of helminth infections (69%) were caused by hookworms, and these were largely aggregated among 20.0-39.9 year-old male subjects from Nepal. (biomedcentral.com)
  • We suggest that helminth infections are probably acquired abroad when immigrants visit their home villages, whilst protozoan infections are reinforced by transmission in Qatar, possibly in the poorer areas of the state where immigrant workers live. (biomedcentral.com)
  • populations
  • However, an unexpected finding was a substantial and seasonal increase in infections of natural populations, such that all colonies quickly became infected once exposed to the field. (springer.com)
  • Neglected tropical diseases ( NTDs ) are a diverse group of tropical infections which are especially common in low-income populations in developing regions of Africa , Asia , and the Americas . (wikipedia.org)
  • In observing the local population where the infection took place, Dr. G. Robert Coatney and other researchers found that they were regularly exposed to the parasite, and, further, were joint hosts of the parasite along with the local monkey populations. (wikipedia.org)
  • intracellular
  • Legionella pneumophila is an intracellular parasite of freshwater protozoa and human macrophages. (pnas.org)
  • Furthermore, they support the hypothesis that the ability of L. pneumophila to parasitize macrophages and hence to cause human disease is a consequence of its prior adaptation to intracellular growth within protozoa. (pnas.org)
  • clinical
  • We selected 580 cases which had residence post code data available, enabling us to examine the geographic distribution of patients, and reviewed the clinical data of 252 patients to examine possible links between protozoa, demographic and clinical features. (jphres.org)
  • Disease Caused
  • Trichomoniasis is a disease caused by a type of anaerobic (capable of living without oxygen) protozoan called trichomonas. (petmd.com)
  • Bronchopulmonary disease caused by flagellated protozoa infection (BPFP) is thought to be rare in children but may be an emerging or underestimated disease, especially in developing countries. (ovid.com)
  • human
  • These data suggest that L. pneumophila employs similar genes and mechanisms to infect human cells and protozoa. (pnas.org)
  • This helps them survive in the human body and causes a serious infection even with the arrival of a single protozoan. (blogspot.com)
  • Those protozoans that have inhabited the human intestine can be transmitted from one human to another via the fecal-oral route, such as through sharing food the infected person has touched and through direct person to person contact. (blogspot.com)
  • This disease also called trypanosomiasis is caused by a protozoa, which are carried by the tsetse fly and are transmitted to human tsetse fly bite. (blogspot.com)
  • bone-marrow
  • Clift RA, Sanders JE, Thomas ED, Williams B, Buckner CD (1978) Granulocyte transfusions for the prevention of infection in patients receiving bone-marrow transplants. (springer.com)
  • persistent
  • Impact: This novel study suggests that elevated iron stores may put women at risk for persistent HPV infection, an early event in cervical carcinogenesis. (healtheiron.com)
  • macrophages
  • Recent studies determined that the macrophage infectivity potentiator (Mip) surface protein, a prokaryotic homolog of the FK506-binding proteins, is required for optimal infection of macrophages. (pnas.org)
  • Conclusions
  • As on other Science Library pages, we do not present a lengthy narrative on each body system affected by infection, but rather will briefly summarize or quote the most relevant take-home points and/or research conclusions from each study. (healtheiron.com)
  • immune
  • Infections are easily transmitted and persons carrying this parasite should avoid interactions with others, especially those with compromised and weakened immune system. (blogspot.com)
