Infections with nematodes of the genus DIPETALONEMA.
A tropical infectious disease found mainly in Africa that is caused by the filarial parasite ACANTHOCHEILONEMA. Symptoms include skin rashes, abdominal, chest, muscle, and joint pains, neurologic disorders, skin lumps, and elevated levels of white blood cells. The parasite is transmitted through the bite of small flies.
A superfamily of nematodes of the suborder SPIRURINA. Its organisms possess a filiform body and a mouth surrounded by papillae.
Infections with nematodes of the superfamily FILARIOIDEA. The presence of living worms in the body is mainly asymptomatic but the death of adult worms leads to granulomatous inflammation and permanent fibrosis. Organisms of the genus Elaeophora infect wild elk and domestic sheep causing ischemic necrosis of the brain, blindness, and dermatosis of the face.
Proteins found in any species of helminth.
An extracellular cystatin subtype that is abundantly expressed in bodily fluids. It may play a role in the inhibition of interstitial CYSTEINE PROTEASES.
A compound tubular gland, located around the eyes and nasal passages in marine animals and birds, the physiology of which figures in water-electrolyte balance. The Pekin duck serves as a common research animal in salt gland studies. A rectal gland or rectal salt gland in the dogfish shark is attached at the junction of the intestine and cloaca and aids the kidneys in removing excess salts from the blood. (Storer, Usinger, Stebbins & Nybakken: General Zoology, 6th ed, p658)
Commonly known as parasitic worms, this group includes the ACANTHOCEPHALA; NEMATODA; and PLATYHELMINTHS. Some authors consider certain species of LEECHES that can become temporarily parasitic as helminths.

BUENA PARK, Calif. (KTLA) -- A 12-year-old boy had to be rescued at Knotts Berry Farms Surf City on Monday after getting his leg wedged under a metal partition. Orange County Fire rescue crews were called to the park around 1:15 p.m.
Chitinasen sind wichtigen Moleküle im Lebenszyklus parasitischer Fadenwürmer und bedeutende Medikamenten- und Impfstoffziele. Hier wurden drei Chitinasesequenzen (I, II und III) durch Charakterisierung von 9 Klonen aus einer Genbank von Acanthocheilonema viteae gefunden. Die Anzahl der drei sehr homologen Chitinasegene wurde durch Southern-Blot bestätigt. Die größten Unterschiede sind in den Exons zu finden, die die Serin-Threonin-reiche Domäne der Chitinasen codieren. Diese Domäne ist in Sequenz III ca. 10fach länger als in Sequenz I. Sequenz I und III haben Eigenschaften eines transkribierten Genes: ein Startcodon, ein offener Leserahmen, ein Stopcodon und ein Polyadenylierungssignal. Sequenz II fehlt das erste Exon mit dem Startcodon. Bei Durchmusterung einer cDNA-Bibliothek adulter A. viteae Würmer bzw. L3 Stadien, sowie durch Reverser Transkriptase-PCR (RT-PCR) wurden in den Mikrofilarien, L3 und L4 Transkripte für Gen I gefunden, jedoch nicht für Gen III. Das N-terminale ...
Nematodes which cause filariasis have detrimental effect on humans. Strategies to eliminate this disease are based on mass treatment with drugs like ivermectin. However, they have several drawbacks such as long duration required for treatment and tenuous financial supports. Understanding the molecular mechanisms of genes required for parasitism will help to develop novel therapeutic and preventive strategies. The aim of this study was a detailed functional characterization of cystatin and chitinase of Acanthocheilonema viteae, a rodent filarial nematode. To this end, C. elegans was used as a heterologous system to determine the spatial expression pattern of A. viteae cystatin and chitinase and thereby their possible functions. The promoter of cystatin drove the expression of reporter, GFP, to the pharyngeal and rectal gland cells of transgenic C. elegans lines, this being compatible with the fact that cystatin is secreted in the parasites. This also suggests that cystatin in A. viteae is ...
One of the most rapidly increasing human public health problems is obesity, whose sequelae like type-2 diabetes, represent continuously worsening, life-long conditions. Over the last 15 years, data have begun to emerge from human and more frequently, mouse studies, that support the idea that parasitic worm infection can protect against this condition. We have therefore investigated the potential of two synthetic small molecule analogues (SMAs) of the anti-inflammatory Acanthocheilonema viteae product ES-62, to protect against metabolic dysfunction in a C57BL/6 J mouse model of high calorie diet-induced obesity. We found weekly subcutaneous administration of the SMAs in combination (1 μg of each), starting one week before continuous exposure to high calorie diet (HCD), decreased fasting glucose levels and reversed the impaired glucose clearance observed in male mice, when measured at approximately 7 and 13 weeks after exposure to HCD. Fasting glucose levels were also-reduced in male mice fed a ...

Parasitic filarial nematodes are often tolerated in their human hosts for decades, with little evidence of pathology, due to parasite-induced immune modulation. The consensus of opinion, to date, is that such parasites achieve prolonged survival as a result of their active modulation of the hosts immune system by secreted immunomodulatory molecules. Consistent with this, the excretory-secretory protein of Acanthocheilonema vitae, ES-62, has been shown to exhibit immunomodulatory activities that are broadly Th2/anti-inflammatory in nature. Dendritic cells are specialised antigen (Ag)-presenting cells critical for initiating and regulating immune responses. They stimulate T cells and produce cytokines that have important immuneregulatory functions. To date, more than 6 different DC subtypes have been identified that arise from at least two different cell lineages. These subtypes are not only phenotypically distinct but they are also thought to perform different functions and be restricted to ...
Knotts Berry Farm is once again offering free admission to active, retired and Veteran U.S. military personnel starting Monday.
This twisted tooth fairy steals more than just baby teeth as he drags his victims out their bedroom window and into a world of deranged dentistry. Unbelievable special effects include a blackout room through which guests must feel their way out, a disorienting x-ray strobe light room, and a final encounter with the massive tooth fairy, himself. Say aahhh.. This had been one of our top ranking mazes at KSF for the past few years but sadly it has become (forgive the pun) long in the tooth. For anyone who has a fear of going to the dentist or the sound of drills then you probably will find this maze to be terrifying. The story begins with scenes of children loosing their teeth and once the Tooth Fairy arrives to collect their denture gems, we end up following it deep down inside the nightmarish abyss of a dental torture chamber. The claustrophobic hallway with dark hairy walls was closed off when we went and that significantly diminished the effect of entering the Tooth Fairys world. Tooth Fairys ...
Chocolate confectionery is expected to see volume sales decline slightly in 2012, falling by a negligible amount compared with the previous year, hampered by higher prices following the introduction of the sweet tax in January 2011, which was further raised in 2012. The uncertain economic situation in 2012 also resulted in cautious consumer demand. It should also be noted that chocolate confectionery is rather mature, and that the health trend is making volume growth more difficult. In current...
State records show repeated injuries on some rides.. Patrons had cracked ribs, back pain and facial cuts after going on Ghost-Rider, Knotts wooden roller coaster. The park made changes in 10 cases, including five ordered by the state.. Kelley Castellanos, 47, of Costa Mesa said she suffered a sprained rib, hearing a pop when she rode GhostRider in September 2009. She had to take a few days off work.. Its a horrible ride. It needs to be shut down, Castellanos said. It just jerks you around so much. Its not good for your body.. In June 2010, Caitlynn Cavazos of Victorville smacked her nose on the ride, causing swelling and a concussion, said her grandmother, Starla Blizard.. Cavazos, then 14, was totally freaked out by it, said her grandfather, Walter Blizard.. Knotts since has made changes on GhostRider, which has larger capacity than most rides, said Jennifer Blazey, a park spokeswoman. The park added padding and slowed down the last half of the journey..
