Protective immunity in mice elicited by living infective third-stage hookworm larvae (Shanghai strain of Ancylostoma caninum). (1/63)

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)

Antibody-dependent reductions in mouse hookworm burden after vaccination with Ancylostoma caninum secreted protein 1. (2/63)

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)

Cutaneous larva migrans in travelers: a prospective study, with assessment of therapy with ivermectin. (3/63)

The purpose of this prospective study was to update epidemiological data on cutaneous larva migrans (CLM) and to assess the therapeutic efficacy of ivermectin. We performed the study between June 1994 and December 1998 at our travel clinic. Ivermectin (a single dose of 200 microg/kg) was offered to all the patients with CLM, and its efficacy and tolerability were assessed by a questionnaire. Sixty-four patients were enrolled. All were European and had stayed in tropical areas. After the patients had returned from their destinations, 55% had lesions occur within a mean of 16 days (range, 1-120 days; >1 month in 7 patients). The initial diagnosis was wrong in 55% of patients. The mean number of lesions was 3 (range, 1-15), and the main sites were the feet (48%) and buttocks (23%). The cure rate after a single dose of ivermectin was 77%. In 14 patients, 1 or 2 supplementary doses were necessary, and the overall cure rate was 97%. The median time required for pruritus and lesions to disappear was 3 and 7 days, respectively. No systemic adverse effects were reported. Physicians' knowledge of CLM, which can have a long incubation period, is poor. Single-dose ivermectin therapy appears to be effective and well tolerated, even if several treatments are sometimes necessary.  (+info)

Mitigation of hookworm disease by immunization with soluble extracts of Ancylostoma ceylanicum. (4/63)

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. (5/63)

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)

Length of protection by murine vaccination with living infective third-stage hookworm larvae. (6/63)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the length of protection by murine immunization with living third-stage hookworm larvae (L3) as measured by reduction in worm burden and host serologic antibody responses. METHODS: Outbred male (Kunming strain) mice were immunized subcutaneously with 500 L3 once every 2 weeks for a total of immunization for 3 times, and then challenged orally with 1000 L3 for 1 to 8 weeks after the final immunization. Host protective immunity was determined both by the reduction in worm burden as measured by the number of L3 recovered from murine lungs 48-hour post-challenge, as well as by measurement of circulating antibodies. Histopathological responses were also examined. Non-immunized mice served as negative controls. RESULTS: The protection by L3 immunization declined over time. One or 2 weeks after the final immunization, worm burdens were reduced 72% and 77.5% after challenge respectively. In contrast, only 37% reduction in worm burden was observed when the L3 challenge was delayed by 4 weeks and protection was almost entirely lost when there was an 8 week delay between the time of final immunization and challenge. The reduced level of protection over time partially correlated with diminishing L3-specific antibody responses. Host inflammation in the lungs of immunized mice also diminished. CONCLUSION: The protection afforded by living L3 immunization is maximal for the first two weeks after immunization, but then declines significantly over the ensuing weeks.  (+info)

Cutaneous and subcutaneous mast cell and eosinophil responses after challenge in mice vaccinated with living infective third-stage hookworm larvae. (7/63)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the quantitative and qualitative alterations in mast cells and eosinophils distributed in the cutaneous and subcutaneous tissues of hookworm-infected, uninfected and vaccinated mice. METHODS: Outbred male Kunming strain mice, weighing 18-22 g, were vaccinated thrice by subcutaneous inoculation with 500 living third-stage infective larvae (L3) of Ancylostoma caninum (A. caninum) every 2 weeks, and then challenged subcutaneously with 500 L3 one week after the final immunization. Uninfected mice and non-immunized mice but infected with L3 served as controls. The abdominal skin at the site of percutaneous entry was excised from challenged mice at intervals between 6 hours and 7 days after challenge, fixed, and then examined by light microscopy after staining with either toluidine blue or hematoxylin and eosin. RESULTS: The total number of mast cells appearing in cutaneous, and subcutaneous tissues, and underlying abdominal musculature of immunized mice increased significantly compared with non-immunized mice. Mast cells from hookworm-infected mice showed evidence of membrane rupture and degranulation in contrast to the intact appearance of mast cells from uninfected mice. The degree of mast cell degranulation was greater in vaccinated and challenged mice when compared with non-immunized and infected mice. Similarly, eosinophilic infiltration was greatly enhanced after L3 infection. Tissues from vaccinated mice had a greater number of eosinophils than non-immunized mice after infection. CONCLUSIONS: Mast cell alterations appearing earlier than tissue eosinophilic infiltration is major inflammatory response to Ancylostoma caninum (A. caninum) L3 infection in mice. These processes are more obvious in L3-vaccinated mice.  (+info)

Short report: Ancylostoma ceylanicum: exsheathment is not required for successful cryopreservation of third stage hookworm larvae. (8/63)

Third-stage larvae (L3) of the human hookworm parasite Ancylostoma ceylanicum were cultured from the feces of infected hamsters and frozen for up to 100 days in liquid nitrogen. Upon thawing, viable larvae were recovered and used to inoculate naive hamsters. The larvae recovered from this second group of hamsters were used to inoculate a third group of naive animals, which demonstrated that the originally frozen larvae were successfully maintained for two full generations following thawing. These data suggest that exsheathment, which has previously been reported to be essential for successful cryopreservation, is not necessary for recovery of viable, infectious A. ceylanicum L3.  (+info)

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 ...

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. The larvae then migrate throughout the body, particularly the small intestine. - Stock Image F018/2182
Abstract. A panel of 80 compounds was screened for anthelmintic activity against a laboratory strain of Ancylostoma ceylanicum and field isolates of hookworm obtained from school children in the Kintampo North District of the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. Although the laboratory strain of A. ceylanicum was more susceptible to the compounds tested than the field isolates of hookworm, a twofold increase in compound concentration resulted in comparable egg hatch percent inhibition for select compounds. These data provide evidence that the efficacy of anthelmintic compounds may be species-dependent and that field and laboratory strains of hookworm differ in their sensitivities to the anthelmintics tested. These data also suggest that both compound concentration and hookworm species must be considered when screening to identify novel anthelmintic compounds.

Hookworm parasite. Light micrograph of the rear end of Ancylostoma caninum, a parasitic hookworm which affects cats and dogs. This species of nematode worm is unable to mature in humans but the larvae often causes lesions in the skin. The hookworm larvae live in soil and water, mainly in the warm, moist tropics. They enter a host by boring through the skin. Once within the body they migrate, via the lungs, to the intestines. Here they secure themselves with hooks around their mouthparts to the intestinal wall and suck blood from their host. They release thousands of eggs each day which pass out of the host with the feces. Magnification: x18 at 35mm size. - Stock Image Z180/0013

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 ...
Results:. The infections in three of the patients were diagnosed during the initial 6 years and six in the last 2 years. All owned a dog and described activity potentially exposing them to infection with canine hookworm larvae. Three patients had a laparotomy for acute abdominal pain, and six had colonoscopies (five with pain and one without symptoms). Six of the nine had blood eosinophilia (mean, 0.97 × 109/L), and five of eight had elevated immunoglobulin E levels (mean level, 756 µg/L); six of eight had eosinophilic inflammation of the gut. In six patients, the worm was identified as A. caninum, whereas in three, damage to the specimen did not allow specific identification; however, they were unlikely to be human parasite species. Although all parasites were in the adult stage, none were sexually mature. Positive serologic findings in seven of the eight patients tested confirmed presence of antibody to the parasite. ...

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].

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. ...

Are you worried that your pet may have hookworms? Our informative guide has useful advice on how to spot and treat Hookworms in both dogs and cats.
Thanks to the scientists who managed to unravel the genome of the hookworm, new remedies for this disease-causing parasite that affects 700 million people will now be developed
Abstract Hookworms are enteric parasitic roundworms infecting an estimated 400 million persons worldwide. Herein, we provide the first molecular identifications of human hookworms from certain parts of rural Lower Myanmar. DNA was extracted from hookworm-positive stool samples, as determined by microscopy. DNA sequences of the partial internal transcribed spacer 1, full length 5.8S gene, and partial internal transcribed spacer 2 were determined and compared with available hookworm sequences from public databases. Of the 11 polymerase chain reaction-positive samples, eight (Bago Region, N = 4; Mon State, N = 4) yielded sequences with high similarity to those of Necator americanus. A further three sequences (Mon State, N = 2; Bago Region, N = 1) showed high similarity with those of Ancylostoma ceylanicum. The latter is primarily a parasite of dogs and represents a zoonosis. Given that different species of hookworms exhibit different epidemiological and biological characteristics, accurate identification
Viability and in vitro and in vivo activities of freeze-dried conidia of the predatory fungus Arthrobotrys robusta (I-31) were evaluated against infective larvae (L3) of Ancylostoma spp. in dogs. A. robusta conidia were lyophilized and stored at 4 °C for a month. Freeze-dried conidia were diluted to 1 × 103 conidia/ml and tested in vivo. The treated group consisted of a solution containing conidia (1 ml) and 1000 Ancylostoma spp. (L3) placed on Petri dishes plated with 2% water-agar (2% WA), at 25 °C, in the dark for 10 days. The control group consisted of 1000 Ancylostoma spp. L3, plated on 2% WA. After 10 days, Ancylostoma spp. L3 from both the treated and the control groups were recovered and counted. The in vivo test was performed on two dogs by administering a single oral dose of freeze-dried conidia (1.5 × 105) in aqueous solution to one animal and only water to the other. Fecal samples were collected at 12, 24 and 48 h after the treatments, plated 2% WA plates and incubated at 25 °C ...
We present evidence that the dog hookworm (Ancylostoma caninum) is underutilised in the study of host-parasite interactions, particularly as a proxy for the human-hookworm relationship. The inability to passage hookworms through all life stages in vitro means that adult stage hookworms have to be harvested from the gut of their definitive hosts for ex vivo research. This makes study of the human-hookworm interface difficult for technical and ethical reasons. The historical association of humans, dogs and hookworms presents a unique triad of positive evolutionary pressure to drive the A. caninum-canine interaction to reflect that of the human-hookworm relationship. Here we discuss A. caninum as a proxy for human hookworm infection and situate this hookworm model within the current research agenda, including the various omics applications and the search for next generation biologics to treat a plethora of human diseases. Historically, the dog hookworm has been well described on a physiological and
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. For sludge samples, flotation (Method

Harsh conditions cause the nonparasitic Caenorhabditis elegans larvae to enter the developmentally arrested state of dauer, which requires a decrease in the steroid hormones Δ4-dafachronic acid (Δ4-DA) and Δ7-DA to release the nuclear hormone receptor DAF-12 from its ligand-bound state. Because dauer larvae share morphological similarities with infective larvae of parasitic nematodes, and because exit from dauer in C. elegans appears to use similar signaling mechanisms as activation of infectivity in the parasitic hookworm Ancylostoma caninum, Ogawa et al. reasoned that genes involved in inducing dauer might also be present in parasitic nematodes. They first examined whether Δ4-DA, Δ7-DA, and DAF-12 were involved in inducing dauer in Pristionchus pacificus, a nonparasitic distant relative of C. elegans. Unlike C. elegans, which only enters dauer under extreme conditions, P. pacificus must enter dauer as part of its life cycle and was considered by the authors to be an intermediate between ...

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. His ...
A report is given of 34 cases of Ulcus rodens of the eye (Mooren), which were examined and treaded during a period of five years in Togo, West Africa. The cases were divided into two groups according to the development of the disease. In fourteen cases the progress of the disease was arrested by local treatment (described individually for each eye), and by simultaneous treatment of the Helminthosis (Ascaris lumbricoides and Ankylostoma duodenale), from which the patients were also suffering. It seems likely that Ulcus rodens is caused by an antigen-antibody reaction to Helminth toxins ...
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)
Thats a fearsome one, Ancylostoma duodenale. We learnt about it yesterday at the University, and it would make an excellent candidate for a game because of its itinerary: it crosses your skin, reaches blood, right heart, pulmonary circulation, pulmonary alveolus, bronchia, trachea, larynx, esophagus, stomach and intestine, where it bites the wall and stays hanging and feeding from the blood ...
In speaking of anemia in infancy Cabot (1) says there is apt to be (a) enlargement of the spleen, (b) leukocytosis, (c) high color index, with megalocytic blood picture, (d) erythroblasts, many of them megaloblasts, (e) abnormal leucocytes (myelocytes, stimulation forms), and that these findings make it so difficult in infancy to recognize the type of blood disease from the blood alone that the attempt should not be made-a view borne out in detail by the following case.. Case history: In October 1924, a twelve months old baby was referred to me by Dr. A. F. Thompson of Troy, N. ...
The WHO treatment guidelines for the soil-transmitted helminths (STH) focus on targeting children for the control of morbidity induced by heavy infections. However, unlike the other STHs, the majority of hookworm infections are harboured by adults. This untreated burden may have important implications for controlling both hookworms morbidity and transmission. This is particularly significant in the context of the increased interest in investigating STH elimination strategies. We used a deterministic STH transmission model and parameter estimates derived from field epidemiological studies to evaluate the impact of child-targeted (2-14 year olds) versus community-wide treatment against hookworm in terms of preventing morbidity and the timeframe for breaking transmission. Furthermore, we investigated how mass treatment may influence the long-term programmatic costs of preventive chemotherapy for hookworm. The model projected that a large proportion of the overall morbidity due to hookworm was unaffected
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 ...
