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 ...

Hookworms were first observed in man 104 years ago1; they were known to have become well-naturalized citizens of this hemisphere some 60 years later.2 Although their etiological rôle was taken for granted prior to that time, most of our reasonably exact information concerning their life-history, transmission, distribution, social and economic significance and control has accumulated since the turn of the century. Many of these facts, familiar to parasitologists, have not yet found their way into medical texts. They appear intermittently in current medical journals in abbreviated form usually without interpretation. The object of this paper, therefore, is to present a ...

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 ...

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. ...
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 ...
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 ...

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

Hookworm disease was a significant public health issue in Arkansas until the movement to eradicate hookworms in the early twentieth century. With official estimates claiming that up to twenty percent of the entire population of the state suffered from hookworm infestation, this parasite was sufficiently widespread to affect the economy as well as the health of Arkansas. Its virtual eradication was the result of a public health and education campaign on the part of the Rockefeller Sanitary Commission between 1910 and 1914.. The hookworm is an intestinal parasite that grows and reproduces in the intestines of its hosts. When infected people deposit feces containing hookworm eggs in warm, moist, shaded soil, the eggs hatch and develop into larvae. Within five to ten days, the hookworm larvae are ready to burrow into the skin of a new host, usually between the bare toes, and then travel up through the veins into the heart and lungs. The host develops a cough that expels the hookworm from the lungs, ...

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.
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...

Case history: In October 1924, a twelve months old baby was referred to me by Dr. A. F. Thompson of Troy, N. ...
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 ...

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.

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). When administered prophylactically, this agent may reduce the incidence of deep venous thrombosis without hemostatic compromise. Because rNAPc2 inhibits the formation of the FVIIa/TF protease complex, which may play a role in the cellular signaling of both metastatic and angiogenic processes, it may impede tumor progression.

The relationship between iron status and the intensity of infection with hookworm was investigated in a rural population on Karkar Island, Mandang Province, Papua New Guinea. There was a significant negative correlation between plasma ferritin level and hookworm burden, which was strongest in males. In contrast, there was no correlation between plasma ferritin and hookworm egg count, and no consistent correlation between haemoglobin level or haematocrit and either measure of hookworm intensity. The results suggest that the role of hookworm in the aetiology of anaemia may be difficult to assess without the accurate measurement of hookworm burden.. ...

Hookworms are a scourge of the worlds poor, sucking blood from the intestines and causing anemia, lethargy, and developmental defects in nearly one billion people in developing countries.
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.

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
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 ...

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 ...
By Julia Stuart David Pritchards wife thought he was barking. In the interests of science, the professor of parasite immunology agreed for a plaster bearing 50 hookworms to be stuck on to his skin. They burrowed into his flesh, crawled up his arm, travelled to his lungs and arrived in his gut, where they attached themselves and started to suck out his blood. "My wife said, What the hell are you doing? Youve got a young family," he says. Mrs Pritchard had already had to put up with her husband disappearing to Papua New Guinea every summer for the past 10 years to study the parasite, a species known as Necator americanus. He and his team from the University of Nottingham established that while in intimate contact with the immune system, the hookworm was never rejected by it. They worked out that the worm was manipulating it to survive. Professor Pritchard then published a speculative article arguing that the worms could actually be good for you. Necator americanus can switch off the immune ...

This paper provides detailed information on both the predicted distribution of hookworm infection among African school-aged children and the possible co-distribution of hookworm and P. falciparum malaria. The developed model estimates that throughout Africa, hookworm is widespread and that over a quarter of school-aged children appear to be at risk of co-infection with malaria and hookworm. These estimates are based on uniquely detailed epidemiological data available from dedicated school-based surveys and from a comprehensive search of the published literature, and used in combination with satellite-derived environmental data and high-resolution human population distribution maps. The results provide an empirical basis for defining future disease burden estimates for parasitic diseases among African school children, and help identify future priority areas for research and policy investment.. It has recently been speculated that infection with helminths, including hookworm, may increase ...
Hookworm infection, a parasitic intestinal infection is more prevalent in places with poor sanitation and hygiene as the hookworms spread through contaminated soil.

Parasitic filarial nematodes are often tolerated in their human hosts for decades, with little evidence of pathology, due to parasite-induced immune modulation. The consensus of opinion, to date, is that such parasites achieve prolonged survival as a result of their active modulation of the hosts immune system by secreted immunomodulatory molecules. Consistent with this, the excretory-secretory protein of Acanthocheilonema vitae, ES-62, has been shown to exhibit immunomodulatory activities that are broadly Th2/anti-inflammatory in nature. Dendritic cells are specialised antigen (Ag)-presenting cells critical for initiating and regulating immune responses. They stimulate T cells and produce cytokines that have important immuneregulatory functions. To date, more than 6 different DC subtypes have been identified that arise from at least two different cell lineages. These subtypes are not only phenotypically distinct but they are also thought to perform different functions and be restricted to ...

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 ...
Some dogs dont show clinical signs of worm infestation. Hence, its essential to have an examination of the stool sample every 6 to 12 months. Active worm infections should be treated according to vet instructions to avoid complications. Since over the counter de-worming medications arent equally effective, the vet will prescribe a de-wormer specific to the type of parasite detected in microscopic analysis of the stool sample. Its also best to de-worm female pets before breeding. In addition, pet owners should prevent dogs from eating rodents such as rats and rabbits and control flea infections in the home. Intestinal worms can cause much damage and even death in extreme cases. Prevention, early detection and appropriate treatment are essential to safeguard your pet from these parasites. ...
Studies have shown that sufferers of Multiple Sclerosis, Crohns disease and Coeliac disease could benefit from a mild hookworm infestation: this ties in to the hygiene hypothesis, where a lack of childhood exposure to parasites and microorganisms is commonly linked to a less developed immune system: essentially, by introducing hookworms, the hope is that an individual will start to develop an improved immune response.. The worms are commonly administered via skin patches, where they will enter the body as they would in nature - once a patient has lived with the worms present in their gut for the best part of a year, the parasites are disposed of by administering a worming medicine;. Studies are still being carried out in this hot area of research - however, a number of findings will start to be published in coming years: by then, we may see more and more natural parasites being used in medicine, along with improved drugs and herbal treatments.. Gene Bacchus runs a Locum Agency which specialises ...
Infection with hookworm may prevent asthma, new research suggests providing more support for the idea that too much hygiene is responsible for rising asthma rates.. A study of more than 12,000 people in Ethiopia has found that those who tested positive for hookworm, an intestinal parasite, were half as likely to have asthma as those who did not. The results are reported in this weeks issue of The Lancet.. Sarah Scrivener from the University of Nottingham and colleagues identified all rural and urban dwellers in and around the city of Jimma, Ethiopia, who had reported asthmatic wheezing in the previous 12 months. A similar group of people without wheezing acted as a control group.. They investigated several factors that they thought might affect asthma risk: parasites, hepatitis A infection, exposure to dust-mite allergen, and organophosphate insecticides. Insecticide level and hepatitis A infection were not related to the risk of asthma, but the researchers uncovered an interesting relationship ...
Image Courtesy: boxerforums.com. Prevention. Several worming treatments are available and the similarity in them is that they dont stop worms but kill the ones in the dogs body before they go out of control and cause a disease.. Many companies manufacture allwormer tablets, some for intestinal worms and heartworm, while some for only intestinal worms. If it is to be given every month, its probably for both, while if it is to be given every 3 months, its only for intestinal worms.. Puppies should be treated every two weeks till they are 12 weeks. After that they should be treated monthly until 6 months of age. And after that they can be treated every 3 months, just like adults. Treatment for heartworms should be given every month from the age of 12 weeks.. Treatment of Worm Infestation. No worming treatment is 100% effective and they even dont kill young worms growing inside your dog. You can treat your dog as often as every 3-4 weeks if required to eradicate a stubborn infection.. Worms can ...
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 ...
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.
I was prescribed with Pyrantel Pamoate when my doctor diagnosed me with hookworm infection last month.

The current treatments against Trichuris trichiura, albendazole and mebendazole, are only poorly efficacious. Therefore, combination chemotherapy was recommended for treating soil-transmitted helminthiasis. Albendazole-mebendazole and albendazole-oxantel pamoate have shown promising results in clinical trials. However, in vitro and in vivo drug interaction studies should be performed before their simultaneous treatment can be recommended. Inhibition of human recombinant cytochromes P450 (CYPs) CYP1A2, CYP2C9, CYP2C19, CYP2D6, and CYP3A4 was tested by exposure to albendazole, albendazole sulfoxide, mebendazole, and oxantel pamoate, as well as albendazole-mebendazole, albendazole sulfoxide-mebendazole, albendazole-oxantel pamoate, and albendazole sulfoxide-oxantel pamoate. A high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC)-UV/visible spectroscopy method was developed and validated for simultaneous quantification of albendazole sulfoxide, albendazole sulfone, mebendazole, and oxantel pamoate in plasma. ...
