The hookworm platelet inhibitor: functional blockade of integrins GPIIb/IIIa (alphaIIbbeta3) and GPIa/IIa (alpha2beta1) inhibits platelet aggregation and adhesion in vitro. (1/106)

Hookworms, aggressive, blood-feeding, intestinal nematodes, are currently a leading cause of iron deficiency anemia in the developing world. An inhibitor of platelet aggregation and adhesion has been partially purified and characterized from soluble protein extracts of adult Ancylostoma caninum hookworms. This protein, named the hookworm platelet inhibitor, has an estimated molecular mass of 15 kDa as determined by size-exclusion chromatography. In addition to blocking platelet aggregation in response to a variety of agonists, the partially purified inhibitor also prevents adhesion of resting platelets to immobilized fibrinogen and collagen. Inhibitory monoclonal antibodies were used to identify specific blockade of cell surface integrins GPIIb/IIIa (alphaIIbbeta3) and GPIa/IIa (alpha2beta1), the platelet receptors for fibrinogen and collagen, respectively. This broad-spectrum anti-platelet activity is also present in excretory and secretory products of adult worms, suggesting a biologic role for the hookworm platelet inhibitor in vivo.  (+info)

Protective immunity in mice elicited by living infective third-stage hookworm larvae (Shanghai strain of Ancylostoma caninum). (2/106)

OBJECTIVE: To elucidate the mechanisms of protective immunity in mice elicited by living hookworm (Ancylostoma caninum third-stage infective larvae (L3). METHODS: The number of migrating infective larvae recovered from the lungs was used as an endpoint for vaccine immunity. The timing of maximal L3 lung entry was determined by counting the number of lung larvae at several time points after infection with 500 or 1000 L3. Mice were immunized either orally or subcutaneously with 500 L3, followed by two boosts of L3 once every two weeks. The immunized mice were challenged orally with 500 L3 one week after the final boost. To evaluate the protective immunity, the number of L3 recovered from the lungs of the immunized mice during the time of maximal larval entry was compared with that of controls. Host immunity was also evaluated by comparing circulating anti-L3 antibodies between immunized and controlled mice, using both enzyme immunoassays and immunoblotting techniques, and by lung histopathology. RESULTS: The peak time of larval entry into the lungs occurred 48 hours after infection. Mice immunized either orally or subcutaneously with L3 exhibited a marked reduction (90.2% and 86.2% respectively) in the number of recovered lung larvae in comparison to controls (P < 0.01). The protection might be associated with circulating anti-L3 antibodies, including antibodies directed against 132-200 kDa L3 antigens, as well as three major antigens ranging from 28 to 51 kDa. Larvae migrating through the lungs of vaccinated mice showed cuticular damages accompanied with host-inflammatory cell invasion. CONCLUSIONS: Immunization with living L3 protects mice against lung invasion after challenged with hookworm infection. Vaccine immunity is associated with circulating antibodies against L3 antigens and lung inflammatory responses. The mouse model is potentially useful for developing a hookworm vaccine.  (+info)

Epidemiology of hookworm infection in Itagua, Paraguay: a cross sectional study. (3/106)

A cross-sectional study in Itagua, Paraguay tested 192 people for the presence, intensity and species of hookworm infection. Fifty-nine percent of these individuals were found to be infected. Intensity of infection was determined on 92% of infected individuals by quantitative egg counts. The high intensity hookworm infections, which cause the greatest morbidity, were clustered between the ages of five and 14 years. No differences were seen between genders. The species of hookworm was determined for parasites reared from 72% of infected individuals. Both Necator americanus and Ancylostoma duodenale were identified, although the former species predominated. We conclude that hookworm infection continues to be a public health problem in Paraguay, particularly among children and adolescents who suffer from high intensity infections. A. duodenale continues to persist in the Western Hemisphere and has not been completely displaced by N. americanus.  (+info)

Antibody-dependent reductions in mouse hookworm burden after vaccination with Ancylostoma caninum secreted protein 1. (4/106)

Vaccination of mice with either third-stage Ancylostoma caninum infective hookworm larvae (L3) or alum-precipitated recombinant Ancylostoma secreted protein 1 from A. caninum (Ac-ASP-1) results in protection against hookworm challenge infections. Vaccine protection is manifested by reductions in lung hookworm burdens at 48 h postchallenge. Mice actively immunized 4 times with Ac-ASP-1 also exhibited reductions in hookworm burden in the muscles. Hookworm burden reductions from Ac-ASP-1 immunization were associated with elevations in all immunoglobulin subclasses, with the greatest rise observed in host IgG1 and IgG2b. The addition of a fourth immunization resulted in even higher levels of IgG and IgE. In contrast, L3-vaccinated mice exhibited marked elevations in IgG1 and IgM, including anti-Ac-ASP-1 IgM antibody. Passive immunization with pooled sera from recombinant Ac-ASP-1-vaccinated mice also resulted in lung hookworm burden reductions. It is hypothesized that recombinant Ac-ASP-1 vaccinations elicit antibody that interferes with parasite larval migration.  (+info)

A common muscarinic pathway for diapause recovery in the distantly related nematode species Caenorhabditis elegans and Ancylostoma caninum. (5/106)

Converging TGF-beta and insulin-like neuroendocrine signaling pathways regulate whether Caenorhabditis elegans develops reproductively or arrests at the dauer larval stage. We examined whether neurotransmitters act in the dauer entry or recovery pathways. Muscarinic agonists promote recovery from dauer arrest induced by pheromone as well as by mutations in the TGF-beta pathway. Dauer recovery in these animals is inhibited by the muscarinic antagonist atropine. Muscarinic agonists do not induce dauer recovery of either daf-2 or age-1 mutant animals, which have defects in the insulin-like signaling pathway. These data suggest that a metabotropic acetylcholine signaling pathway activates an insulin-like signal during C. elegans dauer recovery. Analogous and perhaps homologous cholinergic regulation of mammalian insulin release by the autonomic nervous system has been noted. In the parasitic nematode Ancylostoma caninum, the dauer larval stage is the infective stage, and recovery to the reproductive stage normally is induced by host factors. Muscarinic agonists also induce and atropine potently inhibits in vitro recovery of A. caninum dauer arrest. We suggest that host or parasite insulin-like signals may regulate recovery of A. caninum and could be potential targets for antihelminthic drugs.  (+info)

A broad spectrum Kunitz type serine protease inhibitor secreted by the hookworm Ancylostoma ceylanicum. (6/106)

Although blood-feeding hookworms infect over a billion people worldwide, little is known about the molecular mechanisms through which these parasitic nematodes cause gastrointestinal hemorrhage and iron deficiency anemia. A cDNA corresponding to a secreted Kunitz type serine protease inhibitor has been cloned from adult Ancylostoma ceylanicum hookworm RNA. The translated sequence of the A. ceylanicum Kunitz type inhibitor 1 (AceKI-1) cDNA predicts a 16-amino acid secretory signal sequence, followed by a 68-amino acid mature protein with a molecular mass of 7889 daltons. Recombinant protein (rAceKI-1) was purified from induced lysates of Escherichia coli transformed with the rAceKI-1/pET 28a plasmid, and in vitro studies demonstrate that rAceKI-1 is a tight binding inhibitor of the serine proteases chymotrypsin, pancreatic elastase, neutrophil elastase, and trypsin. AceKI-1 inhibitory activity is present in soluble protein extracts and excretory/secretory products of adult hookworms but not the infective third stage larvae. The native AceKI-1 inhibitor has been purified to homogeneity from soluble extracts of adult A. ceylanicum using size exclusion and reverse-phase high pressure liquid chromatography. As a potent inhibitor of mammalian intestinal proteases, AceKI-1 may play a role in parasite survival and the pathogenesis of hookworm anemia.  (+info)

Mitigation of hookworm disease by immunization with soluble extracts of Ancylostoma ceylanicum. (7/106)

Hookworms are a leading cause of anemia in developing countries, and a strategy aimed at reducing pathology caused by blood-feeding adult parasites would be a valuable addition to global control efforts. This article describes experiments designed to induce resistance to the major clinical sequelae (weight loss and anemia) of Ancylostoma ceylanicum hookworm infection in Syrian golden hamsters of the outbred LVG strain. Previously infected animals acquired long-lived resistance to weight loss and anemia caused by a secondary hookworm infection. Furthermore, transfer of pooled serum from twice-infected hamsters to animals undergoing a primary infection was associated with partial resistance to growth delay and anemia. Active vaccination of hamsters with soluble adult hookworm antigens emulsified in alum led to partial protection from hookworm-associated pathology in the absence of reductions in adult worm burden. This intriguing result may have important implications for human vaccine development.  (+info)

Enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blotting analysis of human serologic responses to infective hookworm larval antigen. (8/106)

OBJECTIVE: To explore the possibility of using specific antigens for immunodiagnosis of hookworm disease in endemic area. METHOD: Infective third-stage larvae of the canine hookworm, Ancylostoma caninum (A. caninum), were prepared as the source of antigen. Enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blotting (EITB) was employed as an immunodiagnostic method. RESULTS: Two immunodominant bands of hookworm antigens (42 kDa and 55 kDa) were recognized by the sera of hookworm-infected patients (serum dilution 1:200; antigen centrifuged at 36,000 r/m for 20 minutes, but not by sera from negative controls. CONCLUSION: The 42 kDa and 55 kDa A. caninum antigens might be the specific antigens that could be used for immunodiagnosis of hookworm disease in endemic area.  (+info)

Computer illustration of the head of the parasitic hookworm Ancylostoma duodenale. This is one of the commonest causes of hookworm infestation in humans, particularly in sub-tropical regions such as North Africa and India. The worms head contains several tooth-like structures with which it clings to the bowel of its host. Hookworms also infect dogs and cats. Human infestation begins with larvae penetrating the skin, usually by burrowing into the feet of a person and entering the bloodstream.

Hookworm infection contributes around 700 million infections worldwide especially in developing nations due to poor sanitation. The effective recovery of hookworm ova from wastewater matrices is difficult due to their low concentrations and heterogeneous distribution. In this study, we compared the recovery rates of (i) four rapid hookworm ova concentration methods from municipal wastewater, and (ii) two concentration methods from sludge samples. Ancylostoma caninum ova were used as surrogate for human hookworm (Ancylostoma duodenale and Necator americanus). Known concentration of A. caninum hookworm ova were seeded into wastewater (treated and raw) and sludge samples collected from two wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) in Brisbane and Perth, Australia. The A. caninum ova were concentrated from treated and raw wastewater samples using centrifugation (Method A), hollow fiber ultrafiltration (HFUF) (Method B), filtration (Method C) and flotation (Method D) methods.

Hookworm head. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph of the head of the parasitic hookworm, Ancylostoma duodenale. This is one of the commonest causes of hookworm infestation in humans, particularly in sub-tropical regions such as North Africa & India. The worms head contains several tooth-like structures with which it clings to the bowel of its host. Hookworms also infect dogs and cats. Human infestation begins with larvae penetrating the skin, usually by burrowing into the feet of a person and entering the bloodstream. The larvae then migrate throughout the body, particularly the small intestine. Magnification: x168 6x6cm size. Magnification: x250 at 4x4 inch size. - Stock Image Z180/0196
Ascariasis: The infection is caused by Ascaris lumbricoides roundworms and is typically found in tropical and sub-tropical areas. Persons with light infections may not exhibit any symptoms. Those who develop symptoms start with a persistent cough, wheezing, shortness within 1 week of exposure as a result of larvae migrating to the lungs and throat. The second set of symptoms, including abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bloody or worm in stools, fatigue, weight loss appear a few weeks (up to 2 or 3 months) later as the roundworms become adults and the females lay eggs which are shed through feces. The parasite can live in humans for up to 2 years. Children are particularly affected by this illness because they tend to play in and eat dirt. Treatment includes taking anthelmintic drugs. Hookworm , Ancyclostomiasis: This intestinal infection is primarily caused by Necator americanus, followed by Ancylostoma duodenale, and to a lesser extent by Ancylostoma ceylanicum nematodes typically ...

Hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum, Ancylostoma braziliense) are intestinal parasites of the cat and dog that get their name from the hook-like mouthparts they use to anchor themselves to the lining of the intestinal wall. They are only about 1/8" (3 mm) long and so small that it is very difficult to see them with the naked eye. ...
Ancylostoma hookworms are small, thread-like parasites that attach to the walls of the small intestine in cats, feeding on the blood of their host. Hookworms are fairly common, infecting an estimated 10 to 60 percent of all cats at some point. - Wag! (formerly Vetary)
Canine hookworms attach to the intestinal walls of your dog using hook-like structures in their mouths. They are very small parasites that are among the leading types of worms that infect dogs. They have a very small size, but are capable of sucking a lot of blood from the blood vessels in the intestinal wall.
Hookworms:. Hookworms are very serious parasites, especially in young animals. They are very small worms, barely visible to the human eye. Hookworm larvae can penetrate skin to infect the host - this includes barefoot humans! They can also be transmitted to unborn pups. The adult hookworm attaches itself to the intestinal wall and feeds on blood.. The larva can infect its new host in several ways. One way is to penetrate the hosts skin directly through the feet or belly or whatever part of the skin is touching the ground. Another way for the larva to gain entry to the new host is to be present in soil that is licked and swallowed by the host as it cleans itself.. Infection of a very young puppy can occur in two additional ways. Typically an infected mother dog will have encysted larvae all around her body. Throughout the adult dogs life, some larvae will awaken, break out of their cysts, and complete their migration to the GI tract.. Pregnancy hormones unfortunately serve as little wake-up ...
Although mankind has known about intestinal parasites for millennia, it has only been in the last century that scientists have recognized the diseases caused by zoonotic parasites. Soil-transmitted helminths (STHs), including Toxocara canis and Ancylostoma caninum, are an important subset of zoonotic parasites, and they have developed unique characteristics that allow them to infect humans and animals. Overt parasitism is no longer common in many developed nations; however, the subtle and varied symptoms associated with STH infection, along with the lack of experience and interest of the human healthcare industry, mean that many cases of zoonotic infection are missed. These diseases not only affect the health of humans, but they also have poverty-promoting effects. The lack of attention paid to these parasites in recent years has caused the World Health Organization to label them "neglected zoonotic diseases." Human culture and individual behaviors are important risk factors for these diseases, ...
Project: High-throughput approach for the screening of Immunotherapeutics in Hookworm Excretory/Secretory (ES) Products. Parasitic infections place a costly and disproportionate disease burden on developing countries. However, evidence suggests that certain parasites, such as hookworms, offer substantial health benefits, particularly in allergy and inflammatory bowel disease. Helminth therapy is gaining momentum and widespread acceptance in the medical community; however, the use of live hookworm therapeutics has drawbacks. An increasing body of evidence suggests that a safer option is to harness the immunomodulatory properties of the hookworms excretory/secretory (ES) products. We and others have shown that ES protects against inflammation in several mouse models of colitis, and more particularly that denaturation/digestion of Ancylostoma caninum ES neutralizes its protective properties against inflammation. Recent transcriptional and proteomic profiling of A. caninum has revealed ...

A prime example of the kind of evidence at hand to establish transoceanic transport for such organisms is the case of the hookworm, Ancylostoma duodenale. Its relative rarity in some tropical areas of the New World and its long-term prevalence in East and Southeast Asia make the latter area the place where epidemiologists think the organism originated. At first early historians of medicine assumed that A. duodenale had been introduced into the Americas by slaves brought from Africa. Early in the 20th century, O. da Fonseca discovered the parasite in an isolated Amerindian population in the Amazon basin.49 Shortly afterward, microbiologist Samuel Darling weighed the evidence and concluded it was likely that the hookworm had reached native South American forest dwellers before Columbus arrived. If that could be proven, he observed, then the only plausible explanation for its presence in the New World would be that it arrived anciently via infected humans who had crossed the ocean.50.

Yes, worms found in dogs and cats are potential health hazards for humans, too. If hookworm larvae penetrate the skin they can cause cutaneous larval migrans, a potentially serious and scarring inflammation results.. For example, ascarid (roundworm) eggs, if ingested, can cause a disease called visceral larval migrans where tiny worm larvae migrate through the persons intestinal wall and into the body tissues. They then grow to larger size almost anywhere in the body. Ocular disease is a common sequel visceral larval migrans. Children are at most serious risk especially if play behavior is in an environment where dog, cat, or raccoon feces may be present... such as in a sandbox. A single adult Toxicara canis female can shed up to 100,000 eggs a day which pass into the dog (or cats) environment with the stool. Please take the worming advice of your veterinarian seriously and adhere to strict sanitation principles whenever pets and children are in close contact.. To learn more about ...

We are a pet-loving nation: At least 39 percent of us own dogs, and 33 percent care for cats. But even though your chosen chum can provide you with much joy, did you also know that some pet diseases can be passed to human owners?. "None of these pet diseases happens very frequently, but it is still smart to be aware of them," says veterinarian Kate E. Creevy, assistant professor of small animal internal medicine at the University of Georgia. Heres a brief overview of pet diseases to ask your doctor about if you think someone you love is at risk. Hookworms can be transmitted by both dogs and cats. Hookworm larvae penetrate the skin and develop into half-inch-long worms that crawl just beneath the skins surface. You usually find them in the foot or leg area. Look for skin inflammation and serpentine-like lesions. Electricians, plumbers, other workers who crawl beneath buildings, sunbathers who rest on larvae-contaminated sand and kids who play in contaminated playgrounds are the most likely to ...

Abstract: : Purpose: Eosinophilic enteritis (EE) is defined by the presence of intestinal symptoms and eosinophilic infiltration, traditionally in the absence of extra-intestinal organ involvement. Peripheral blood eosinophilia is found in the majority of patients. EE is common in Australia and is often associated with infection by the common dog hookworm Ancylostoma caninum, although other worms have been identified. We hereby describe a case of unusual unilateral chorioretinitis and subretinal neovascularization in a young boy with eosinophilic enteritis. Methods: Report of a single, observational case. Results: A 10-year-old Caucasian boy (dog-owner) presented with unilateral, painless, subacute loss of vision. Two months previously, visual acuity (VA) in the left eye was correctable to 20/30. On presentation, VA was 20/20 OD and counting finger (CF) OS. Anterior segments were normal. The right fundus was unremarkable. The left fundus had an extensive, creamy, central chorioretinal lesion ...

Ancylostomiasis (also anchylostomiasis or ankylostomiasis) is a hookworm disease caused by infection with Ancylostoma hookworms. The name is derived from Greek ancylos αγκύλος "crooked, bent" and stoma στόμα "mouth". Ancylostomiasis is also known as miners anaemia, tunnel disease, brickmakers anaemia and Egyptian chlorosis. Helminthiasis may also refer to ancylostomiasis, but this term also refers to all other parasitic worm diseases as well. In the United Kingdom, if acquired in the context of working in a mine, the condition is eligible for Industrial Injuries Disability Benefit. It is a prescribed disease (B4) under the relevant legislation.§ Ancylostomiasis is caused when hookworms, present in large numbers, produce an iron deficiency anemia by sucking blood from the hosts intestinal walls. Because the larvae are in an abnormal host, they do not mature to adults but instead migrate through the skin until killed by the hosts inflammatory response. This migration causes local ...
Drs. Foster and Smith suggest that owners of newly acquired puppies should obtain the deworming history of their new pet and contact their veterinarian to determine if additional deworming is needed.. Severely Infected Animals: In addition to deworming, severely infected animals may need supportive care including high-protein diets and iron supplements. In critical cases, blood transfusions may be necessary.. What can be done to prevent hookworm infections in pets, breeding animals, and people? To prevent hookworm infections, we need to remember how animals become infected either through contaminated soil or water, transport hosts, or through their mothers.. Treating the Environment: The larvae of hookworms can live several weeks in cool, moist soil, but die rapidly in freezing or hot, dry conditions. Yards and kennels should be cleaned daily. Floors in kennels and dog runs should be impervious, so they are easier to clean. All fecal material should be removed, since organic material will ...

Preferred Name: Recombinant Nematode Anticoagulant Protein c2 Definition: An 85-amino acid recombinant peptide derived from protein c2 of the hemophagocytic hookworm Ancylostoma caninum (a common canine parasite) with anticoagulant activity. Recombinant nematode anticoagulant protein c2 (rNAPc2) binds to circulating activated factor X (FXa) or zymogen factor X (FX) to form a binary complex which subsequently binds to and inhibits membrane-bound activated factor VII/tissue factor complex (FVIIa/TF).

Cutaneous larva migrans (CLM) is the most common tropically acquired dermatosis whose earliest description dates back more than 100 years. Cutaneous larva migrans manifests as an erythematous, serpiginous, pruritic, cutaneous eruption caused by accidental percutaneous penetration and subsequent migration of larvae of various nematode parasites. Cutaneous larva migrans is most commonly found in tropical and subtropical geographic areas and the southwestern United States; however, the ease and the increasing incidence of foreign travel by the worlds population have no longer confined cutaneous larva migrans to these areas ...

Parasite data were collected from unlogged and selectively logged lowland rain forests in Borneo. Scat from a female Viverra tangalunga (Malay civet) in the unlogged forest contained eggs of Capillaria spp., Trichuris sp., Mamomoganomus sp., and nematode larvae. Scat attributed to V. tangalunga contained reproductive products (eggs/oocysts/cysts/larvae) of Capillaria sp., Toxocara sp., Ancylostoma sp. (probably A. ceylanicum), Isospora spp., strongylate-type eggs (probably Ancylostoma spp.), Paragoni- mus sp. and other Trematoda eggs, Monocystis sp. cysts, Gnathostoma sp. (probably G. spinigerum), the lungworm Viverrostrongylus brauni, pinworm-type eggs, Eimeria spp., Sarcocystis-type sporocyst, dermanysid mites and mesostigmatid mites. Parasites from gut samples from two Hemigalus derbyanus (banded palm civets) road kills included Capil- laria sp., other trematode eggs, Demodex-type eggs, Ascarid-type eggs and pinworm-type eggs.

The hookworm related Cutaneous Larva Migrans is a common disease present in the tropic and subtropical areas of the world. The disease is self limiting and would naturally resolve within weeks. However, an unusual recurrence of the disease in a Ghanaian male after standard treatment was observed and is herein reported. A 52 year old Ghanaian male of Akan dissent was diagnosed with Cutaneous Larva Migrans in a clinic in Accra, Ghana. Symptoms of the disease persisted for three days after treatment with a 400mg single dose Albendazole and was only resolved after re-dosing with 400mg daily of the same drug for three days. Two months post-treatment, the usual pruritic creeping eruption typical with the disease re-appeared even though the victim has not been re-exposed to any possible larva contaminated source. This could possibly be a case of hookworm- related larva resistance to a standard anti-helminthic therapy and host immunity.

Enter Necator americanus, the hookworm. Responsible for chronic anemia and failure to thrive in millions of people, but, apparently, small numbers are harmless in healthy humans. Just so you know, the eggs hatch in the soil, the small larvae attach to the skin of your foot, these larvae migrate into the skin, then lymphatics and bloodstream, rupture into the lung, are coughed up through the windpipe and swallowed into your stomach and become adults in your bowel where they live for years, the females laying about 10,000 eggs a day, which go, well, you know where…. Hey, (thinks) wouldnt it be great to infect people with this parasite and see if it helped their autoimmune disease… How do we infect them? Well, Juergen Landmann infected himself both orally and via the skin with Ancylostoma caninum, a closely-related hookworm, and reported his observations in the MJA in 2003. The Acknowledgements section of the paper states: "Vicki Whitehall, the first authors wife (fiancée at the time) is ...
The successful development of diagnostic tests capable of distinguishing human hookworm species will ultimately depend on an increase in our knowledge of their comparative biochemistry.

If that doesnt make you feel better, then do what I did: go out and get yourself a nasty tropical disease. Thatll surely make you feel authentic. In my case, a feces-borne parasite in my toe did the trick. While you may call that gross, I call it a merit badge.

Its important to note that Strongyloides agar culture detects ALL motile larvae found in stool, including hookworm larvae that have hatched from their eggs. Therefore, it is important to also examine the morphology of the worms to differentiate Strongyloides larvae from other similar appearing larvae. In particular, Strongyloides L1/rhabditiform larvae have a shorter buccal canal than hookworm L1 larvae, and the L3/filariform larvae have a notched tail, whereas the hookworm L3 larvae have a pointed tail ...

In 2008 12% , one in eight, of the world population lived in extreme poverty, less than $1 a day. Ill quote from Balkrishna C. Raos article Alleviating Poverty in the 21st Century, Challenge Magazine, May 2014, According to World Bank estimates for 2008 (Chen and Ravallion 2010), 801 million people in developing countries were exposed to extreme poverty that is $1 a day, and 2.47 billion people [37% or 3 in 8] lived on less than $2 a day. But nearly 3 billion people were employed globally in 2011, although, according to the ILO report, the employment0-to-population ratio on average has been decreasing, thereby pointing to rising unemployment. The 37%, 3 of 8 humans, who still live in poverty of less than $2 a day would disagree that The same machine . . . has leveled the field globally for billions. In fact that statement could be inflammatory and insulting to anyone laboring in that condition. 30% of the worlds workers, according to the article, still labor for less than $2 a day. 49% ...

Novartis Sentinel Flavor Tabs are palatable once-a-month tablets that prevent heartworm disease and flea populations in dogs and puppies. Also controls flea populations and adult hookworms, roundworm and whipworms.
There is an urgent need for new tools to control human hookworm infection and to reduce its burden of disease in developing countries. This is especially true for children and women of reproductive age who represent populations that are highly vulnerable to the effects of hookworm disease. Up to 65,000 deaths annually have been attributed to human hookworm infection. However, the mortality estimates of hookworm pale in comparison to global disease burden estimates.. The primary approach to hookworm control worldwide has been the frequent and periodic use of benzimidazole anthelminthics for school-age children. However, school-based anthelminthic chemotherapy programs miss populations highly vulnerable to hookworm, including adolescent and adult women. In addition, high rates of hookworm re-infection occur within 4-12 months following anthelminthic chemotherapy, and there is evidence for diminished efficacy of benzimidazoles with frequent and periodic use, possibly because of emerging drug ...

The three major Soil-Transmitted Helminths (STH), Ascaris lumbricoides, Necator americanus/Ancylostoma duodenal and Trichuris trichiura are among the most prevalent parasites worldwide. The objective of this multicentre international study is to define the efficacy of a single 400 milligram dose of albendazole (ALB) against these three STHs using a standardised protocol. The trial will be undertaken among school age children in seven countries - Brazil, Cameroon, Cambodia, Ethiopia, India, Tanzania (Zanzibar) and Vietnam - each with a different epidemiologic pattern of infection. A trial of this nature is urgently required because in spite of the wide usage of albendazole over the last 3 decades, there is still no key publication reporting the efficacy of the anthelmintic accurately, and to modern conventional standards, that can act as a central reference for the baseline efficacy. The latter is critically important because albendazole is now being used even more widely, as large scale mass ...
Patent and pathologic infections of the human hookworm Necator americanus were established in the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus). In a pilot study, a laboratory strain of N. americanus was compared with a fresh field isolate. Pathology was more severe in animals infected with a fresh isolate. In all animals, infection was associated with increased total plasma IgE and production of IgG specific to adult worm excretory/secretory (ES) products. Histamine was released by basophils in response to IgE, ES products, and a recombinant hookworm allergen, calreticulin. The pilot study indicated the potential of this animal model of hookworm infection and led us to investigate the consequences of infecting a further cohort with the fresh field isolate. This second study confirmed our initial findings, that it is possible to investigate the human hookworm N. americanus in a model exhibiting many of the characteristics of the immunology of hookworm infection in its definitive host.
Globally, hookworms infect 440 million people in developing countries. Especially children and women of childbearing age are at risk of developing anaemia as a result of infection. To control hookworm infection and disease (i.e. reduce the prevalence of medium and heavy infection to |1 %), the World Health Organization has set the target to provide annual or semi-annual preventive chemotherapy (PC) with albendazole (ALB) or mebendazole (MEB) to at least 75 % of all children and women of childbearing age in endemic areas by 2020. Here, we predict the feasibility of achieving |1 % prevalence of medium and heavy infection, based on simulations with an individual-based model. We developed WORMSIM, a new generalized individual-based modelling framework for transmission and control of helminths, and quantified it for hookworm transmission based on published data. We simulated the impact of standard and more intense PC strategies on trends in hookworm infection, and explored the potential additional impact of
We present immunological data from two clinical trials where the effect of experimental human hookworm (Necator americanus) infection on the pathology of celiac disease was evaluated. We found that basal production of Interferon- (IFN-)γ and Interleukin- (IL-)17A from duodenal biopsy culture was suppressed in hookworm-infected participants compared to uninfected controls. Increased levels of CD4+CD25+Foxp3+ cells in the circulation and mucosa are associated with active celiac disease. We show that this accumulation also occurs during a short-term (1 week) oral gluten challenge, and that hookworm infection suppressed the increase of circulating CD4+CD25+Foxp3+ cells during this challenge period. When duodenal biopsies from hookworm-infected participants were restimulated with the immunodominant gliadin peptide QE65, robust production of IL-2, IFN-γ and IL-17A was detected, even prior to gluten challenge while participants were strictly adhering to a gluten-free diet. Intriguingly, IL-5 was produced
