Proteins found in any species of protozoan.
Proteins that share the common characteristic of binding to carbohydrates. Some ANTIBODIES and carbohydrate-metabolizing proteins (ENZYMES) also bind to carbohydrates, however they are not considered lectins. PLANT LECTINS are carbohydrate-binding proteins that have been primarily identified by their hemagglutinating activity (HEMAGGLUTININS). However, a variety of lectins occur in animal species where they serve diverse array of functions through specific carbohydrate recognition.
The principle immunoglobulin in exocrine secretions such as milk, respiratory and intestinal mucin, saliva and tears. The complete molecule (around 400 kD) is composed of two four-chain units of IMMUNOGLOBULIN A, one SECRETORY COMPONENT and one J chain (IMMUNOGLOBULIN J-CHAINS).

Serum antibodies to Balamuthia mandrillaris, a free-living amoeba recently demonstrated to cause granulomatous amoebic encephalitis. (1/284)

Free-living amoebae cause three well-defined disease entities: a rapidly fatal primary meningoencephalitis, a chronic granulomatous amoebic encephalitis (GAE), and a chronic amoebic keratitis. GAE occurs in immunocompromised persons. Recently, another type of free-living amoeba, Balamuthia mandrillaris, has been shown to cause GAE. The finding that this amoeba has caused infection in some healthy children has raised the possibility that humans may lack immunity to B. mandrillaris. Human serum was examined for the presence of surface antibodies specific for this amoeba by immunofluorescence. Sera from adults contained titers of 1/64-1/256 of anti-B. mandrillaris antibodies (IgM and IgG classes), which did not cross-react with other amoebae. Cord blood contained very low antibody levels, but levels similar to those in adults were seen in serum of 1- to 5-year-old children.  (+info)

Amoebiasis among institutionalized psychiatric patients in Taiwan. (2/284)

Although information on amoebiasis among institutionalized psychiatric patients is available, reports on the relationship between behaviour and this infection are not abundant. From July 1995 to June 1996, stool and blood samples were collected from 565 patients in three psychiatric hospitals of North Taiwan. Stool samples were examined using the direct smear and formalin-ethyl acetate sedimentation techniques as well as ProSpecT Entamoeba histolytica Microplate Assay kit. Blood samples were examined by the Amebiasis Serology Microwell ELISA kit. Among these patients, 14 (2.5%) harboured one or two species of intestinal parasites. There were 6 (1.1%) E. histolytica/E. dispar cyst passers: 5 positive in stool ELISA test and 2 with antibodies against E. histolytica. Among demographic factors, type of psychiatric disorder and disability, only a significant sexual difference in seropositivity of E. histolytica was observed. These findings indicate that the infected patients acquired the infections before they entered the hospitals.  (+info)

Pathogenicity of Korean isolates of Acanthamoeba by observing the experimental infection and zymodemes of five isoenzymes. (3/284)

To determine the pathogenicity of Acanthamoeba spp. isolated in Korea and to develop a isoenzymatic maker, the mortality rate of infected mice, in vitro cytotoxicity against target cells and isoenzyme band patterns were observed. Five isolates of Acanthamoeba spp. (YM-2, YM-3, YM-4, YM-5, and YM-7) were used in this study as well as three reference Acanthamoeba spp. (A. culbertsoni, A. hatchetti, and A. royreba). According to the mortality rate of infected mice, Korean isolates could be categorized into three groups high virulent (YM-4), low virulent (YM-2, YM-5, YM-7) and the nonpathogenic group (YM-3). In addition, the virulence of Acanthamoeba spp. was enhanced by brain passage in mice. In the cytotoxicity assay against chinese hamster ovary cells, especially, the cytotoxicity of brain-passaged amoebae was relatively higher than the long-term cultivated ones. The zymodeme patterns of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD), malate dehydrogenase (MDH), hexokinase (HK), glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase (GOT) and malic enzyme (ME) of Acanthamoeba spp. were different among each isolate, and also between long-term cultured amoebae and brain passaged ones. In spite of the polymorphic zymodemes, a slow band of G6PD and HK, and an intermediate band of MDH were only observed in pathogenic Acanthamoeba spp., which should be used as isoenzymatic makers.  (+info)

Case studies in international travelers. (4/284)

Family physicians should be alert for unusual diseases in patients who are returning from foreign travel. Malaria is a potentially fatal disease that can be acquired by travelers to certain areas of the world, primarily developing nations. Transmitted through the bite of the Anopheles mosquito, malaria usually presents with fever and a vague systemic illness. The disease is diagnosed by demonstration of Plasmodium organisms on a specially prepared blood film. Travelers can also acquire amebic infections, which may cause dysentery or, in some instances, liver abscess. Amebiasis is diagnosed by finding Entamoeba histolytica cysts or trophozoites in the stool. Invasive amebic infections are generally treated with metronidazole followed by iodoquinol or paromomycin. Cutaneous larva migrans is acquired by skin contact with hookworm larvae in the soil. The infection is characterized by the development of itchy papules followed by serpiginous or linear streaks. Cutaneous larva migrans is treated with invermectin or albendazole. Case studies are presented.  (+info)

Epizoic amoebae from the gills of turbot Scophthalmus maximus. (5/284)

Species of amoebae belonging to the genera Platyamoeba Page, 1969, Vannella Bovee, 1965 and Flabellula Schaeffer, 1926 were found to accompany Paramoeba sp., the agent of amoebic gill disease (AGD), in clinically diseased turbots. The same community of epizoic gymnamoebae was found on the gills of turbots which revealed no gill abnormalities but slight behavioral signs indicative of suboptimal health status. The assemblage of the above-mentioned free-living amoebae capable of colonizing gill tissue of turbots was supplemented with species recognized in samples fixed from primary isolates for transmission electron microscopy. The pathogenic potential of epizoic gill amoebae in turbots is discussed.  (+info)

Apoptosis of primary-culture rat microglial cells induced by pathogenic Acanthamoeba spp. (7/284)

To determine whether trophozoites and lysates of pathogenic Acanthamoeba spp. induce apoptosis in primary-culture microglial cells, transmission electron microscopic (TEM) examinations, assessment of DNA fragmentation by agarose gel electrophoresis, and the TdT-mediated dUTP nick-end labeling assay were performed. When a trophozoite of pathogenic Acanthamoeba culbertsoni came in contact with a microglial cell, the digipodium was observed by TEM. Nuclear chromatin condensation was observed in 10% of microglial cells, while it was not revealed when they were cocultured with weakly pathogenic Acanthamoeba royreba trophozoites. DNA fragmentation in microglial cells cocultured with the A. culbertsoni lysate was detected by electrophoresis, showing DNA ladder formation, whereas it was hardly observed in microglial cells cocultured with A. royreba. DNA fragmentation of microglial cells was also confirmed by flow cytometry analysis. The fluorescence of TdT-stained apoptotic bodies became intensely visible with microglial cells cocultured with the A. culbertsoni lysate. In contrast, with microglial cells cocultured with the A. royreba lysate, only a background level of fluorescence of TdT-stained apoptotic bodies was detected. These results suggest that some rat microglial cells cocultured with pathogenic A. culbertsoni undergo cytopathic changes which show the characteristics of the apoptotic process, such as nuclear condensation and DNA fragmentation.  (+info)

Isolation of Acanthamoeba-specific antibodies from a bacteriophage display library. (8/284)

Acanthamoeba causes opportunistic eye infections in humans, which can lead to severe keratitis and may ultimately result in blindness. Current methods for identifying this organism rely on culture and microscopy. In this paper, we describe the isolation of antibody fragments that can be used for the unequivocal identification of Acanthamoeba. A bacteriophage antibody display library was used to isolate antibody fragments that bind specifically to Acanthamoeba. Individual clones were studied by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, flow cytometry, and immunofluorescence. Four antibody clones that specifically bind to Acanthamoeba spp. were identified.  (+info)

Amebiasis FAQ. Amebiasis What is amebiasis? Amebiasis is an intestinal illness caused by a microscopic parasite called Entamoeba histolytica.. Who gets amebiasis? Anyone can get amebiasis, but it occurs more often in people arriving from tropical countries that have poor sanitary conditions, in individuals in institutions for the developmentally disabled, and in men who have sex with men.. How is amebiasis spread? The disease can be spread through food or water that has been contaminated with feces from an infected person. It can also be spread from person-to-person through sexual practices with fecal-oral contact. Infected people are the only sources of the parasite.. What are the symptoms of amebiasis? People exposed to this parasite may experience mild or severe symptoms or no symptoms at all. Only about 10% to 20% of people who are infected become sick, and most infected people do not become seriously ill. The symptoms of amebiasis include diarrhea, stomach pain, and stomach cramping. Amebic ...
Case histories are presented of 2 individuals (a 5-year-old girl and 64-year-old man) who developed encephalitis caused by the free-living amoeba Balamuthia mandrillaris Both individuals survived after diagnosis and initiation of effective antimicrobial therapy. Immunostaining for Balamuthia-specific antibody levels identified the causative agent of the infections. Antimicrobial therapy with flucytosine, pentamidine, fluconazole, sulfadiazine, and a macrolide antibiotic (azithromycin or clarithromycin) was initiated. Phenothiazines (thioridazine and trifluoperazine) were also used. Both patients recovered, and there was no evidence of recrudescence of the disease at 2 and 6 years after onset of symptoms. Awareness of Balamuthia as the causative agent of encephalitis and early initiation of antimicrobial therapy were critical to the recovery of both patients. Although optimal antimicrobial therapy for Balamuthia amoebic encephalitis has yet to be determined, the antimicrobials used in these 2 ...
Abstract Serological response to amebic disease was investigated in Africans in Durban. Immunodiffusion (ID), indirect hemagglutination (IHA), and complement-fixation (C-F) tests were done to compare sensitivity of the tests and their value in differentiating between antibodies in an acute infection and those persisting after treatment. Sera were obtained from persons with amebic disease before and at varying times after treatment and from asymptomatic cyst passers and uninfected persons. In invasive amebiasis, the immunodiffusion and indirect hemagglutination tests were similar in their ability to detect antibodies yielding positive results in 95% and 94%, respectively, of the patients studied. The C-F test was the least sensitive of the three methods, with only 65% of patients with invasive amebiasis being positive. In the cyst-passer group, 55.5% and 39%, respectively, were positive by the IHA and ID tests. A high percentage of uninfected persons were positive by both tests; a possible explanation is

Not everyone with amebiasis will become sick. Symptoms can be mild such as loose stools and abdominal cramping. In severe cases there may also be blood in the stools and fever. Symptoms usually begin 2 to 4 weeks after you are exposed to the parasite, but can range from a few days to several months or years.. Rarely amebiasis can make you sick in other parts of your body such as your liver, lungs or brain. People with underlying medical conditions, especially those with HIV/AIDS, may experience more severe symptoms which can lead to serious complications. Be sure to share your full medical history with your health care provider.. ...
Amebiasis in dogs is caused by a parasitic amoeba that invades the body when a dog ingests infected amoebic cysts in human feces, usually while in bodies of water. The amoebae travel via the bloodstream invading the tissues of the large intestine, liver, kidneys, lungs, and brain.

Amebiasis proved to be a serious problem in American troops stationed in India. Despite the institution of stringent sanitary control measures the incidence of infection with E. histolytica remained high and was responsible for a considerable loss of man-power through disability and hospitalization.. The clinical aspects of the disease were of great interest to medical officers.

Naegleria fowleri is a free-living amoeba; it is a protist pathogen that is known to cause a fatal encephalitis in humans known as primary amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM). The peak season for the cases admitted to the hospital is in the summers, and all the reported cases have a history of exposure to the warm waters. Mostly, PAM is reported in recent swimmers and people who perform ablution and/or nasal cleansing. Much has been done for vaccination and treatment without any success in past 60 years, but the mortality has remained 99%. Here, we propose a prophylaxis for this disease by introducing a device Naegleriopel. This device is noninvasive and requires insertion into the nostrils at times of swimming or water sports related activities. This device, made up of synthetic plastic or silicone, could be adapted to the contours of the interior of the nose. It is expected to reduce the sporadic and seasonal incidences of PAM.. ...
Amoebic encephalitis is an infection of the brain caused by various different amoebae, for example Naegleria fowleri, Acanthamoeba species, Balamuthia mandrillaris, or Entamoeba histolytica.[5] These infections are rare, and usually lethal.[10] Naegleria fowleri causes primary amoebic encephalitis (PAE), which progresses very rapidly, whereas Acanthamoeba species cause granulomatous amoebic encephalitis (GAE), which is also usually lethal, but develops slower than PAE.[10] Acanthamoeba species and Balamuthia mandrillaris usually only cause disease in immunocompromised patients and Entamoeba histolytica can cause encephalitis after infecting another region in the body.[10] There has been only one documented case of pathogenesis involving Sappinia species, which resulted in granulomatous amoebic encephalitis in a non-immunocompromised 38-year-old male from Texas in 1998.[5] The fact that the patient was non-immunocompromised is surprising because there is only one known amoeba (Naegleria fowleri) ...

Naegleria fowleri (commonly referred to as the brain-eating amoeba), is a microscopic amoeba which is a single-celled living organism. It can cause a rare and devastating infection of the brain called primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM). The amoeba is commonly found in warm freshwater such as lakes, rivers, ponds and canals.. Infections can happen when contaminated water enters the body through the nose. Once the amoeba enters the nose, it travels to the brain where it causes PAM (which destroys brain tissue) and is usually fatal. Infections usually occur when it is hot for prolonged periods of time, which results in higher water temperatures and lower water levels.. Naegleria fowleri infections are rare. Most infections occur from exposure to contaminated recreational water. Cases due to the use of neti pots and the practice of ablution have been documented.. The practice of ablution is included in Yogic, Ayurvedic, and Islamic traditions. Within the Islamic faith, ritual nasal rinsing ...
Naegleria fowleri is a free-living ameba known to cause primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM). Moreover, PAM is an acute, fulminating, and hemorrhagic infection that occurs in healthy young children with fresh water exposure in warm climates. It is postulated that Naegleria fowleri enters through the nasal passages and crosses the cribriform plate, where it reaches the subarachnoid space and disseminates into the olfactory lobes. Visvesvara et al (2007) performed a retrospective study of all reported N fowleri infections in the United States from 1937 to 2013 and found 3 survivors in 142 reported cases. Only 27% of the 142 cases were diagnosed before patient death. We present a case of a previously healthy 14-year-old boy who presented with fever, headache, vomiting, and altered mental status 8 days after swimming in a warm freshwater lake. Cerebrospinal fluid studies showed organisms consistent with amoeba (Figure 265, C). Despite neuroprotective measures and antimicrobial medications, the ...
Naegleria fowleri is a free-living amoeba that causes primary amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM). In the United States, there are between 0-8 cases of PAM per year, with approximately 98% of cases resulting in death. High case fatality and limited treatment options highlight the need for better understanding of this organism in terms of its biology and pathogenicity. Transfection is a useful tool that allows for the study of gene function, but at present no transfection systems have been established for N. fowleri. This study attempts to establish a transfection system for N. fowleri using the piggyBac vector, with the hope of eventually using the piggyBac transposon system to identify novel genes related to pathogenicity in N. fowleri. To accomplish this, 5 and 3 regulatory regions for genes in the N. fowleri genome were amplified and inserted into a piggyBac vector with a GFP reporter gene via molecular cloning, and vectors introduced to the amoeba via electroporation. Although no GFP was visualized

Amebiasis has popularly been considered a disease of the tropics. This, however, has long been known to be incorrect. Ochsner and De Bakey1 have stated that amebiasis exists in 10 to 20 per cent of the population of the United States. Its incidence in the tropics is, however, very much higher and it was therefore to be expected that our returning troops would bring back the disease to this country and make it of much greater significance to the practicing physician..

To spread the awareness of Naegleria Fowleri, the brain-eating amoeba that causes the deadly infection PAM (primary amoebic meningoencephalitis).
The genus Sappinia with the single species Sappinia pedata was established for an amoeba with two nuclei and pedicellate cysts by Dangeard in 1896. In 1912, Alexeieff transferred an also double nucleated, but apparently sexually reproducing amoeba to this genus as Sappinia diploidea that had been described as Amoeba diploidea by Hartmann and Nägler in 1908. Molecular analyses have confirmed the differentiation between S. pedata and S. diploidea; however, the genus splits into more than two well separated clusters. The genus Sappinia is now classified as a member of the Thecamoebidae and, moreover, as potentially pathogenic. Subacute or chronic CNS infections due to Acanthamoeba spp, Balamuthia mandrillaris, and Sappinia spp., which occasionally cause cerebral abscess, are termed granulomatous amebic encephalitis (GAE). In 2001, Gelman and colleagues reported a case of severe encephalitis in an immunocompetent young man caused by Sappinia. Another case of GAE and abscess formation was reported ...

A species of motile, unicellular eukaryotic amoebae within the family of Acanthamoebidae. A. quina is placed in morphological group II with a 18s rRNA gene sequence type of T4. Members of this group are characterized by the presence of wrinkled ectocysts and endocysts which could be stellate, polygonal, triangular, or oval. This species is a human pathogen and may cause granulomatous amoebic encephalitis and amoebic keratitis.

Summary The long-term use of iodochlorhydroxyquin, 250 mg, 3 times daily, has been employed in 4,000 institutionalized patients over a period of 4 years. Successful prophylaxis against shigellosis and amebiasis was uniformly observed. Successful therapeusis with the same agent against these organisms appears confirmed. Toxic manifestations of such therapy have been extremely infrequent, mild in nature, and completely reversible upon withdrawal of the agent.
This patient information fact sheet provides information on the definition, symptoms, treatments and preventative measures for amebiasis.
Free-living amoebae (FLA) are parasites within both humans and animals causing a wide range of symptoms and act as hosts of, and vehicles for phylogenetically diverse microorganisms, called endocytobionts. The interaction of the FLA with sympatric microorganisms leads to an exceptional diversity within FLA. Some of these bacteria, viruses, and even eukaryotes, can live and replicate intracellularly within the FLA. This relationship provides protection to the microorganisms from external interventions and a dispersal mechanism across various habitats. Among those intracellularly-replicating or -residing organisms there are obligate and facultative pathogenic microorganisms affecting the health of humans or animals and are therefore of interest to Public Health Authorities. Mimiviruses, Pandoraviruses, and Pithoviruses are examples for interesting viral endocytobionts within FLA. Future research is expected to reveal further endocytobionts within free-living amoebae and other protozoa through co

He is the most highly cited investigator in the world on amebiasis, a leading cause of diarrhea in children in the developing world. He discovered how the parasite evades the human immune system, and how it nibbles cells to death as it invades the intestine. He has conducted his investigations in both the lab and in field studies with children in Bangladesh, and has published more than 400 papers, reviews and chapters, and co-wrote a major text on medical parasitology.. His work earned the Oswald Avery Award of the Infectious Diseases Society of America and an Outstanding Faculty Award from the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia. Petri is the past president of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene and a fellow with the American Academy of Microbiology..
