A common muscarinic pathway for diapause recovery in the distantly related nematode species Caenorhabditis elegans and Ancylostoma caninum. (1/92)

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)

Nippostrongylus brasiliensis in young rats. Lymphocytes expel larval infections but not adult worms. (2/92)

Young rats were not able to expel adult N. brasiliensis infections even when the worms were damaged by antibodies and the young rats were given all the cellular components (sensitized lymphocytes and bone marrow cells) shown to be necessary for the expulsion of antibody-damaged worms from adult rats. In contrast, most of the worms were expelled from young rats given sensitized lymph node cells on the day of a larval infection. These results show that the reduced ability of young rats to respond to infection by producing sensitized lymphocytes only partly explains their inability to expel the worms. It was not possible to explain the failure of young rats to expel adult worms by hypothesizing that they develop an active factor which prevents the cells from acting on the worms. It is also unlikely that worms persist in young rats because they differ in their susceptibility to cells compared with antibody-damaged worms from mature rats. This work suggests that the immune mechanism which affects the immature stages of this nematode may differ from that which controls the adult stages.  (+info)

Immune responses in hookworm infections. (3/92)

Hookworms infect perhaps one-fifth of the entire human population, yet little is known about their interaction with our immune system. The two major species are Necator americanus, which is adapted to tropical conditions, and Ancylostoma duodenale, which predominates in more temperate zones. While having many common features, they also differ in several key aspects of their biology. Host immune responses are triggered by larval invasion of the skin, larval migration through the circulation and lungs, and worm establishment in the intestine, where adult worms feed on blood and mucosa while injecting various molecules that facilitate feeding and modulate host protective responses. Despite repeated exposure, protective immunity does not seem to develop in humans, so that infections occur in all age groups (depending on exposure patterns) and tend to be prolonged. Responses to both larval and adult worms have a characteristic T-helper type 2 profile, with activated mast cells in the gut mucosa, elevated levels of circulating immunoglobulin E, and eosinophilia in the peripheral blood and local tissues, features also characteristic of type I hypersensitivity reactions. The longevity of adult hookworms is determined probably more by parasite genetics than by host immunity. However, many of the proteins released by the parasites seem to have immunomodulatory activity, presumably for self-protection. Advances in molecular biotechnology enable the identification and characterization of increasing numbers of these parasite molecules and should enhance our detailed understanding of the protective and pathogenetic mechanisms in hookworm infections.  (+info)

Cleavage of hemoglobin by hookworm cathepsin D aspartic proteases and its potential contribution to host specificity. (4/92)

Hookworms routinely reach the gut of nonpermissive hosts but fail to successfully feed, develop, and reproduce. To investigate the effects of host-parasite coevolution on the ability of hookworms to feed in nonpermissive hosts, we cloned and expressed aspartic proteases from canine and human hookworms. We show here that a cathepsin D-like protease from the canine hookworm Ancylosotoma caninum (Ac-APR-1) and the orthologous protease from the human hookworm Necator americanus (Na-APR-1) are expressed in the gut and probably exert their proteolytic activity extracellularly. Both proteases were detected immunologically and enzymatically in somatic extracts of adult worms. The two proteases were expressed in baculovirus, and both cleaved human and dog hemoglobin (Hb) in vitro. Each protease digested Hb from its permissive host between twofold (whole molecule) and sixfold (synthetic peptides) more efficiently than Hb from the nonpermissive host, despite the two proteases' having identical residues lining their active site clefts. Furthermore, both proteases cleaved Hb at numerous distinct sites and showed different substrate preferences. The findings suggest that the paradigm of matching the molecular structure of the food source within a host to the molecular structure of the catabolic proteases of the parasite is an important contributing factor for host-parasite compatibility and host species range.  (+info)

Impact of antihelminthic treatment on infection by Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura and hookworms in Covas, a rural community of Pernambuco, Brazil. (6/92)

This work aims to evaluate the impact of drug treatment on infection by Ascaris lumbricoides (Al), Trichuris trichiura (Tt) and hookworms (Hook) in a rural community from the sugar-cane zone of Pernambuco, Brazil. Four parasitological surveys were carried out from March 2001 to March 2002. Individual diagnosis was based on eight slides (four by the Kato-Katz method and four by the Hoffman method) per survey. Infected subjects were assigned to two groups for treatment with either albendazole (n = 62) or mebendazole (n = 57). Prevalence of infection fell significantly (p < 0.05) one month after treatment: Al (from 47.7% to 6.6%); Tt (from 45.7% to 31.8%) and Hook (from 47.7% to 24.5%). One year after treatment, infections by Tt and Hook remained significantly below pre-control levels. A substantial decrease in single-infection cases and multiple infections was found. Egg-negative rate was significant for Al (94.0%), Hook (68.3%) but not for Tt (45.5%), and did not differ significantly between subjects treated with mebendazole or albendazole. Egg counts fell significantly in the individuals remaining positive for Tt. It is recommended that antihelminthic treatment should be selective and given at yearly intervals preferably with albendazole, due to its cost-effectiveness.  (+info)

Helminth infection is not associated with faster progression of HIV disease in coinfected adults in Uganda. (7/92)

BACKGROUND: We studied a cohort of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected adults in Uganda who were not receiving antiretroviral therapy, to explore the impact of helminths on HIV progression in areas where antiretrovirals are not available. METHODS: A total of 663 patients were screened for helminths, treated presumptively with albendazole and selectively with praziquantel, and monitored for 6 months. Blood samples were analyzed for CD4+ cell count and HIV-1 RNA. RESULTS: Schistosoma mansoni, hookworm, Strongyloides stercoralis, and Mansonella perstans were the most prevalent helminths. Helminth infection was not associated with higher viral load, lower CD4+ cell count, or faster decrease in CD4+ cell count preceding antihelminthic therapy. The effect of coinfection on HIV disease progression varied with species. CD4+ cell counts were highest in subjects with hookworm and Mansonella perstans infection. For most helminths, effective treatment was associated with greater decrease in CD4+ cell count than in those in whom infection was still present at follow-up. A highly significant decrease in viral load at 6 months was seen in patients with persistent Mansonella perstans infection at follow-up. Mortality was lower in subjects with hookworm infection at enrollment. CONCLUSION: Helminth infection was not associated with more-advanced HIV disease or faster disease progression. Antihelminthic therapy may not be beneficial in slowing HIV progression in coinfected adults.  (+info)

An in vitro larval motility assay to determine anthelmintic sensitivity for human hookworm and Strongyloides species. (8/92)

With the implementation of programs to control lymphatic filariasis and soil-transmitted helminths using broad spectrum anthelmintics, including albendazole and ivermectin, there is a need to develop an in vitro assay for detection of drug resistance. This report describes an in vitro assay for measuring the effects of ivermectin and benzimidazoles on the motility of larvae of the hookworm species Ancylostoma ceylanicum, A. caninum, and Necator americanus, and Strongyloides species including Strongyloides stercoralis, and S. ratti. A dose-response relationship was demonstrated with each of the parasite species, with distinct differences observed between the various species. In pilot field testing of the assay with N. americanus larvae recovered from human fecal samples, a dose-response relationship was observed with ivermectin. While the assay has demonstrated the ability to determine drug responsiveness, its usefulness in resistance detection will require correlation with the clinical outcome among individuals infected with parasite strains showing different drug sensitivities.  (+info)

With an estimated 740 million individuals infected, hookworm is a major public health concern. While hookworm infection may not directly lead to mortality, its effects on morbidity demand immediate attention. When considering disability-adjusted life years (DALYs), neglected tropical diseases, including hookworm, rank among diarrheal diseases, ischemic heart disease, malaria, and tuberculosis as one of the most important health problems of the developing world.. It has been estimated that as many as 22.1 million DALYs have been lost due to hookworm. Recently, there has been increasing interest to address the public health concerns associated with hookworm. For example, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation recently donated US$34 million to fight Neglected Tropical Diseases including hookworm infection.[13] Former US President Clinton also announced a mega-commitment at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) 2008 Annual Meeting to de-worm 10 million children.[14].

MDA for the neglected diseases of neglected populations is neither an exclusively tropical nor recent phenomenon. In 1910, for instance, the Rockefeller Sanitary Commission (RSC) found that 40% of school-aged children in the deep south of the USA were infected with STHs, and in particular hookworm [16]. The RSC sponsored an antihelminthic MDA campaign, combined with sanitation and education, across the region which substantially reduced hookworm infection prevalence levels, intensities and morbidity. Moreover, areas with higher levels of hookworm infection prior to the RSC MDA control programme showed greater increases in school enrolment, attendance and literacy after the intervention, and long-term follow-ups indicated a substantial gain in income that coincided with inclusions within this hookworm MDA programme [16]. Such success in terms of the health, education and economic development of those poorest of the poor within the USA lends support in favour of the contribution of MDA to similar ...

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

Larva migrans infection. Close-up of the skin of a 19-year-old female patient with cutaneous larva migrans (CLM) infection. CLM is a skin disease in humans, caused by larvae of various nematode parasites of the hookworm family (Ancylostomatidae) that live in the patients skin. One of the most common species causing this disease is Ancylostoma braziliense. - Stock Image C028/6670
Commonly known as parasitic worms, soil-transmitted helminth (STH) infections affect the poorest communities and are transmitted to humans by faecally-contaminated soil. The eggs, passed in faeces, can be ingested in different ways: when vegetables are not carefully cooked or washed, from contaminated water sources or by children who play in the contaminated soil, putting their hands in their mouths without washing them. Furthermore, hookworm eggs hatch in soil and can penetrate the skin of people walking barefoot on the contaminated soil.. Affecting more than 2 billion people worldwide, STH have a chronic, gradual but harmful impact on the health and quality of life of those infected. Through regular treatment of children in endemic areas, health and hygiene education and provision of adequate sanitation, STH infections can be eliminated.. ...
Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Dog hookworm buccal capsule (nematode, Ancylostoma caninum). This hookworm has pairs of teeth on the ventral margin of the anterior buccal capsule (eating structure) to attach to the intestinal wall of a host. Adult females release eggs that exit the host in faecal material. Once in the soil eggs hatch into larvae which feed on bacteria and organic material, then mature to a non-feeding infective larval stage that can penetrate the skin of the host. They invade the circulatory system and enter the heart and lungs. They migrate up through the bronchi and tracheae and are swallowed into the intestine where they further mature into adults that mate and lay eggs, completing the life cycle.

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. ...
Written By Jenny Pavlovic. We lost Bandit to multiple myeloma in March, and our little pack continues to find its way. When Bandits body was failing and I realized he was in pain, it became apparent that he was ready to go. But I could tell he was concerned about how we would manage without him. So we spent time with him doing things he wanted to do for one last time, and cherished our last hours together. I reassured him that we didnt want him to be in pain any longer, and that somehow we would get along without him. Bandit wanted us to be happy and celebrate life.. Australian Cattle Dogs usually live longer than ten years, so whenever I begin to wish that wed had more time, I remember that a miracle brought us together in the first place. One step this way or that and our life together would not have happened at all. Im grateful we had that chance meeting.. Over the past ten years, I think Bandit has influenced my life more than any other being. We lived together day in and day out. He ...

Now my take on fate is a bit different. I see fate as a series of roads you come upon in your travels. I think the Cosmos or God or whoever you believe in lays out a certain number of fates for you based on what you were put on this earth to do AND based on your actions in life. You get to choose the road and often you shape your fate by your choices. Sometimes it is more like a scavenger or treasure hunt as you go down those roads and try to find the fate that is also looking for you. With luck and some smart decisions on your part you and your true fate will find each other. And the best thing to do is to enjoy the journey along the way! You meet the most terrific people that way! ...

Theres that old adage that soldiers and bandits dont mix (and if it wasnt previously an old adage, it is now. Because I said so), but thats soon out the window when the blood brothers win their first victory and they start to form up as a proper army rather than a collection of thieves and bandits, emphasised by the summary execution of a pair of men who partook in the usual raping and pillaging thing. The blood brothers moves are limited by a shady cabal of ministers that dictate where the fight will go, but oddly enough will not even contemplate attacking the two major strongholds of Nanking and Suzhou. At every turn theyre also confounded by cowardly General Ho, who lurks in the background like a gold-gilded and very obvious traitor stereotype. The minor twist here is that everybody knows General Ho is a bad one yet their hands are tied, and on occasion he is actually useful. Having a large army can result in that..

Kato-Katz is a widely used method for the diagnosis of soil-transmitted helminth infection. Fecal samples cannot be preserved, and hence, should be processed on the day of collection and examined under a microscope within 60 min of slide preparation. Mini-FLOTAC is a technique that allows examining fixed fecal samples. We assessed the performance of Mini-FLOTAC using formalin-fixed stool samples compared to Kato-Katz and determined the dynamics of prevalence and intensity estimates of soil-transmitted helminth infection over a 31-day time period.; The study was carried out in late 2013 on Pemba Island, Tanzania. Forty-one children were enrolled and stool samples were subjected on the day of collection to a single Kato-Katz thick smear and Mini-FLOTAC examination; 12 aliquots of stool were fixed in 5% formalin and subsequently examined by Mini-FLOTAC up to 31 days after collection.; The combined results from Kato-Katz and Mini-FLOTAC revealed that 100% of children were positive for Trichuris ...
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.
The soil-transmitted helminths (also called geohelminths) are a group of intestinal parasites belonging to the phylum Nematoda that are transmitted primarily through contaminated soil. They are so called because they have a direct life cycle which requires no intermediate hosts or vectors, and the parasitic infection occurs through faecal contamination of soil, foodstuffs and water supplies. The adult forms are essentially parasites of humans, causing soil-transmitted helminthiasis (STH), but also infect domesticated mammals. The juveniles are the infective forms and they undergo tissue-migratory stages during which they invade vital organs such as lungs and liver. Thus the disease manifestations can be both local and systemic. The geohelminths together present an enormous infection burden on humanity, amounting to 135,000 deaths every year, and persistent infection of more than two billion people. Soil-transmitted helminths are typically from the following families of nematodes, ...
Tribendimidine (TrBD) is a widely studied anthelmintic drug supported by more than 20 years of clinical research and 10 years of approved use in China. Together with a consortium of government, nonprofit, and commercial partners, PATH intends to seek US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for TrBD as a significantly improved treatment for hookworm infections. FDA approval is the initial step in a plan to incorporate TrBD in mass deworming campaigns in low-resource settings.. TrBD has demonstrated excellent efficacy against a variety of soil-transmitted helminth infections, and its unique mechanism of action, single-dose administration, and well-documented safety and efficacy make it an attractive next-generation therapy against STH, with the potential for enormous public health benefit.. To execute the project, PATH is leading a TrBD Consortium that includes the National Institute of Parasitic Diseases at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, which is credited with the ...
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. Here, David Pritchard, Paul McKean and Gerry Schad describe some aspects of the comparative biochemistry of Necator americanus and Ancylostoma duodenale, and emphasize differences between the species that could form the basis of discriminatory diagnostic tests.. ...
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, ...
The epidemiology of soil-transmitted helminth (STH) and Plasmodium co-infections need better understanding. The findings of the individual studies are inconclusive. A systematic review was conducted to synthesize evidence on the association of STH infection with the prevalence and density of Plasmodium falciparum infection, and its effect on anaemia among children in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).

I had heard about people using fecal transplants for certain disorders. In fact, I believe that theres a non-profit outside Boston that accepts stool donations which it passes on to those suffering from colitis. So I guess if someones willing to treat themselves with shit, its not a big leap to treatment with hookworms.. The need for all these new approaches to inflammatory diseases is because said diseases have proliferated. One hypothesis is that the proliferation has been brought out precisely because modernity - and folks like the Rockefeller Foundation who went through the South wiping out hookworm - has done too good a job. Weve sanitized ourselves to such an extent that we dont have enough of the microorganisms needed to keep us healthy. Anyway, it turns out that hookworms - necator americanus - are particularly ideal for helminth treatment. So, if youre suffering, you can order up some hookworms for Wormswell. What theyll send you is a vial containing clear liquid and hookworm ...

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 ...

Written by Jenny Pavlovic. We lost our beloved dog Bandit to multiple myeloma in March. I had a beautiful pendant made with some of his ashes inside, and I wear it on a chain around my neck, or on a bracelet. I mentioned before that I had a hard time deciding where to release Bandits ashes, so Ive been releasing smidgens of them in many of the places we had good times together. I had released some of his ashes up on our hill where we walk and play every day, and earlier in July I released some under the orange Moose that Wouldnt Move (http://www.8statekate.net/wordpress/?p=2778) and in my parents yard in Wisconsin where we used to play ball when we visited.. One Saturday morning in July I took some ashes along on errands. I released some at the Washington County Fairgrounds where Bandit and I spent many hours doing tracking training. Last summer Bandit and I often went there on Saturday mornings while Chase was resting at home (in Cays company) from a week of radiation therapy. Im very ...

Hookworm infection is one of the most common and important tropical diseases in the world, affecting over 700 million people within impoverished areas worldwide. Frequent deworming with benzimidazoles is the current treatment. However, this method has begun to show resistance, rendering it necessary to develop new treatments. Despite the need, research and production has been essentially neglected for the past three decades because drug development for impoverished areas provides little commercial gain. Within Dr. Blaise Dondjis lab and in collaboration with Dr. Gil Belofsky, the plants Dalea ornata and Oemlaria cerasiformis have already shown in vitro activity against hookworm, but their toxicity remains to be tested. My current plan will be to test the toxicity of the plants to mammalian cells because they must demonstrate their safety before in vivo testing. Safety will be assessed by measuring the death and efficiency of cell division using C2C12 mouse myoblasts and hamster spleen cells.
2 weeks ago, I received my final (at least for the next few years) dose of hookworms, bringing my count up to the therapeutic level of 30-45. In actuality, I began to notice the crippling symptoms of my autoimmune diseases fading about 1 month after my second dose in October. However, it is a slow process, obvious in the title of this post. The treatment is not without side effects; I am currently in a "flare" caused by the latest hookworm infection. My autoimmune diseases (MCTD/lupus, Fibromyalgia, Raynauds, and Autoimmune hepatitis), have been exacerbated by the introduction of the latest dose, as it was with each previous dose.

BACKGROUND: In the first part of this study, we investigated the prevalence and associated key factors of soil-transmitted helminth (STH) infections among Orang Asli children in rural Malaysia; an alarming high prevalence and five key factors significantly associated with infections were reported. Part 2 of this study aims to evaluate the knowledge, attitude and practices (KAP) on STH infections among Orang Asli in Peninsular Malaysia.. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was carried out among 215 households from 13 villages in Lipis district, Pahang, Malaysia. Demographic and socioeconomic information of the participants and their KAP on STH were collected by using a pre-tested questionnaire.. RESULTS: Overall, 61.4% of the participants had prior knowledge about intestinal helminths with a lack of knowledge on the transmission (28.8%), signs and symptoms (29.3%) as well as the prevention (16.3%). Half of the respondents considered STH as harmful, while their practices to prevent infections were ...
Author summary Intestinal worm infections are common in populations living in tropical, low-income countries. People primarily become infected when they consume intestinal worm eggs from contaminated water, hands, and food. Intestinal worm eggs are transmitted from infected people and spread through the environment, particularly via soil. There is no standard laboratory method for counting intestinal worm eggs in soil, which is a major barrier to comprehensive research on the transmission of infection. We tested different laboratory protocol steps to extract soil-transmitted helminth eggs, which is one type of intestinal worm, from soil and propose a new, fast, and efficient field method. We tested the method in Kenya and Bangladesh and found that soil contamination with helminth eggs was prevalent in both study areas. We propose that environmental contamination be included in discussions about intestinal worm transmission, control, and elimination, especially in areas with low infection prevalence. The
Hookworms are a leading cause of mortality in seal and sea lion pups. Researchers will investigate if ocean food availability as well as the genetic make-up and immune response in South American fur seal pups affect the severity of hookworm infections. The team will analyze 15 years of collected data on fur seals living on Guafo Island in southern Chile to investigate if changes in ocean sea surface temperature and productivity also are associated with changes in hookworm prevalence and mortality in pups. Identifying drivers for hookworm infections, including marine environment, genetics and immune responses in individual animals, will help researchers develop improved wildlife health programs for mitigating hookworms and other parasitic diseases in marine mammals.. ...
Soil-transmitted helminth infections continue to plague large parts of the world with India a significant contributor to the burden of disease [2]. Despite efforts to introduce usage of pit-latrines instead of open defecation, mass deworming program and improvement in water quality and sanitation, STH infections are still prevalent. A conducive climate for its growth, rapid and unplanned urbanization, social practices of open defecation and lack of community education and sanitation are some of the factors, which impedes control of infection in India. India undertook two massive deworming programme, one starting in year 2000 where a single dose of Albendazole and DEC was administered to filarial endemic regions and another in year 2015 covering 241 million children for treatment of STH infections. Although several studies have been published from different regions of India on this topic with the earliest scientific literature dating back as far as 1923 [51], the data on STH infections remains ...
Soil-transmitted helminthiasis (STH) is a type of helminth infection (helminthiasis) caused by different species of roundworms. It is caused specifically by those worms which are transmitted through soil contaminated with faecal matter and are therefore called soil-transmitted helminths. Three types of soil-transmitted helminthiasis can be distinguished: ascariasis, hookworm infection and whipworm infection. These three types of infection are therefore caused by the large roundworm A. lumbricoides, the hookworms Necator americanus or Ancylostoma duodenale and by the whipworm Trichuris trichiura. It has become the most common parasitic disease of humans worldwide. Approximately two billion people (about a third of global population) are infected as of the latest estimate, and four billion at risk, surpassing even the all-time most prevalent parasitic disease, malaria. The largest numbers of cases occur in impoverished rural areas of Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, Southeast Asia, and China. ...
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 ...

Blastocystis subtyping and its association with intestinal parasites in children from different geographical regions of ColombiaBlastocystis subtyping and its association with intestinal parasites in children from different geographical regions of Colombia

Blastocystis is a common enteric protist colonizing probably more than 1 billion people with a large variety of non-human hosts. Remarkable genetic diversity has been observed, leading to the subdivision of the genus into multiple subtypes (ST), some of which are exclusively found in non-human hosts. The aim of this study was to determine the distribution of Blastocystis STs/18S alleles in symptomatic (abdominal pain, anal pruritus, diarrhea, headache, nauseas and/or vomit) and asymptomatic children from nine geographical regions of Colombia. A total of 2026 fecal samples were collected as part of a national survey to estimate the frequency of intestinal parasites in children. A set of 256 samples that were Blastocystis positive was finally selected. The samples were submitted to DNA extraction, Real Time PCR and sequencing using Blastocystis-specific primers targeting the small subunit rRNA gene for ST identification. DNA of Ascaris lumbricoides (16.4%), Trichuris trichiura (8.2%), hookworms ...

Prevalence of intestinal parasite infections on a national scale among primary schoolchildren in Laos - Semantic ScholarPrevalence of intestinal parasite infections on a national scale among primary schoolchildren in Laos - Semantic Scholar

In order to investigate the epidemiological situation of intestinal parasite infections in Laos, parasitological surveys were carried out on a national scale including 17 provinces and the Vientiane Municipality. A total of 29,846 stool specimens were collected from primary schoolchildren from May 2000 to June 2002 and examined once with the cellophane thick smear technique. The cumulative egg positive rate for intestinal helminths was 61.9%. By species, the rate for Ascaris lumbricoides was 34.9%, hookworm 19.1%, Trichuris trichiura 25.8%, Opisthorchis viverrini 10.9%, Taenia spp. 0.6% and Hymenolepis spp. 0.2%. The northern mountainous regions such as Phongsaly, Huaphan or Saysomboune Province showed a higher prevalence (over 70%) of soil- transmitted helminths. The regions along the Mekong River such as Khammuane, Saravane or Savannakhet Province showed a higher prevalence (over 20%) of fish-borne parasites. On the other hand, Schistosoma mansoni eggs were detected in 1.7% of schoolchildren only in

Glutathione S-transferase (GST) expression in the human hookworm Necator americanus: potential roles for excretory-secretory...Glutathione S-transferase (GST) expression in the human hookworm Necator americanus: potential roles for excretory-secretory...

The difficulty in demonstrating protective immunity to human gastro-intestinal nematodes is thought to be a consequence of the expression of defences by the parasites directed against the toxic metabolites of leukocytes produced during inflammation (Brophy and Pritchard, 1992a). Parasite glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) may provide part of this defence by detoxifying the secondary products of lipid peroxidation produced via immune initiated free-radical attack on host or parasite membranes (Brophy and Pritchard, 1994; Taylor et al., 1988). Neutralisation of parasite immune defence components could tip the molecular balance in favour of the immune response during chronic infections. For example, GSTs have been extensively investigated from the digenean parasites Schistosoma and Fasciola hepatica and provide protection in animal-model systems (Mitchell, 1988; Wijffels et al., 1991). In contrast, although GSTs have been initially characterised in filarial nematodes (Salinas et al., 1994; Leibau et al.,
