Penetration sites and migratory routes of Angiostrongylus costaricensis in the experimental intermediate host (Sarasinula marginata). (1/46)

The intermediate hosts of Angiostrongylus costaricensis are terrestrian molluscs, mostly of the family Veronicellidae. The present work aimed at clarifying more accurately the sites of penetration and the migratory routes of A. costaricensis in the tissue slugs and at verifying the pattern of the perilarval reaction at different times of infection. Slugs were individually infected with 5,000 L1, and killed from 30 min to 30 days after infection. From 30 min up to 2 hr after infection, L1 were found within the lumen of different segments of the digestive tube having their number diminished in more advanced times after exposition until complete disappearance. After 30 min of exposition, percutaneous infection occurred, simultaneously to oral infection. Perilarval reaction was observed from 2 hr of infection around larvae in fibromuscular layer, appearing later (after 6 hr) around larvae located in the viscera. A pre-granulomatous reaction was characterized by gradative concentration of amebocytes around larvae, evolving two well-organized granulomas. In this work we confirmed the simultaneous occurrence of oral and percutaneous infections. Perilarval reaction, when very well developed, defined typical granulomatous structure, including epithelioid cell transformation. The infection also caused a systemic mobilization of amebocytes and provoked amebocyte-endothelium interactions.  (+info)

The effect of temperature on mobility of Angiostrongylus costaricensis third stage larvae. (2/46)

Third stage larvae (L3) from Angiostrongylus costaricensis were incubated in water at room temperature and at 5 degrees C and their mobility was assessed daily for 17 days. Viability was associated with the mobility and position of the L3, and it was confirmed by inoculation per os in albino mice. The number of actively moving L3 sharply decreased within 3 to 4 days, but there were some infective L3 at end of observation. A mathematical model estimated 80 days as the time required to reduce the probability of infective larvae to zero. This data does not support the proposition of refrigerating vegetables and raw food as an isolated procedure for prophylaxis of human abdominal angiostrongylosis infection.  (+info)

Cyclooxygenase-2-derived prostaglandin E2 and lipoxin A4 accelerate resolution of allergic edema in Angiostrongylus costaricensis-infected rats: relationship with concurrent eosinophilia. (3/46)

In noninfected rats, challenge with allergen following local IgE sensitization induced a pleurisy marked by intense protein exudation that plateaued from 30 min to 4 h after challenge, reducing thereafter. Infection of rats with Angiostrongylus costaricensis induced a 5-fold increase in blood eosinophil numbers by 25 days postinfection, whereas the numbers of eosinophils in the pleural cavity ranged from normal to a weak increase. In infected rats, identically sensitized, challenge with Ag induced a much shorter duration of pleural edema with complete resolution by 4 h, but no change in the early edema response. In parallel, infection increased the number of eosinophils recovered from the pleural cavity at 4 h, but not at 30 min, following allergen challenge. Pretreatment with IL-5 (100 IU/kg, i.v.) also increased eosinophil numbers in blood and, after allergen challenge, shortened the duration of the pleural edema and increased pleural eosinophil numbers. There were increases in the levels of both PGE2 and lipoxin A4 (LXA4) in pleural exudate. Selective cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 inhibitors, NS-398, meloxicam, and SC-236, did not alter pleural eosinophilia, but reversed the curtailment of the edema in either infected or IL-5-pretreated rats. Pretreatment of noninfected animals with the PGE analogue, misoprostol, or two stable LXA4 analogues did not alter the magnitude of pleural exudation response, but clearly shortened its duration. These results indicate that the early resolution of allergic pleural edema observed during A. costaricensis infection coincided with a selective local eosinophilia and seemed to be mediated by COX-2-derived PGE2 and LXA4.  (+info)

Report on the occurrence of Angiostrongylus costaricensis in southern Brazil, in a new intermediate host from the genus Sarasinula (Veronicellidae, Gastropoda). (4/46)

Veronicellid slugs are the main intermediate hosts for Angiostrongylus costaricencis. In a rural locality in Nova Itaberaba (SC, southern Brazil) Sarasinula linguaeformis was identified as a crop pest. The parasitological examination revealed A. costaricencis infection in 43 out ot 50 slugs. The prevalence of 86% and the individual parasitic burdens are the highest sofar reported in Brazil and S. linguaeformis is the first species from the genus Sarasinula to be identified as intermediate host for A. costaricencis in southern Brazil.  (+info)

Dogs may be a reservoir host for Angiostrongylus costaricensis. (5/46)

Angiostrongylus costaricensis is a parasitic nematode of wild rodents. Several other vertebrate species including man may become infected by ingestion of the third stage larvae produced by the intermediate hosts, usually slugs from the family Veronicellidae. There is a report of the diagnosis of abdominal angiostrongyliasis in Canis familiaris with lesions resembling those found in human disease. As a preliminar evaluation of the adequacy of a canine model for pathogenetic studies, a dog was inoculated with 75 L3 of A. costaricensis. Infection was established and fist stage larvae were found in feces up to 88 days post infection, sometimes in very large numbers (9.5 x 10(4) L1/g). No clinical manifestations or significant lesions were detected. These are indications that dog may play a role as a reservoir host for A. costaricensis.  (+info)

Angiostrongylus vasorum infection in 2 dogs from Newfoundland. (6/46)

Described are the first antemortem diagnosis made via fecal examination using the Baermann technique and the first postmortem recovery of endemic Angiostrongylus vasorum in dogs from North America, specifically the Avalon peninsula of Newfoundland. In one dog, A. vasorum was recovered and identified at postmortem; gross and histologic lesions are described.  (+info)

Drug trials for treatment of human angiostrongyliasis. (7/46)

Abdominal and cerebral angiostrongyliasis are two important infections produced by metastrongylid worms, the former occurring in Central and South America and the later in Asia and Pacific Islands. Drug treatment is a challenge since the worms and its evolving larvae live or migrate inside vessels and efficient killing of the parasites may produce more severe lesions. Larvicidal effect of certain drugs appears to be more easily accomplished but this outcome is not useful in abdominal angiostrongyliasis since clinical manifestations appear to result from sexual maturation of the worms. We review the drug trials in murine experimental models and conclude that most of them could not be considered good candidates for treatment of human infection, except for PF1022A, pyrantel and flubendazole.  (+info)

Angiostrongylus costaricensis and experimental infection of Sarasinula marginata II: elimination routes. (8/46)

Angiostrongylus costaricensis intermediate hosts are terrestrial mollusks mostly belonging to the Veronicellidae family. In the present investigation we focused on the mechanisms of larval expulsion from Sarasinula marginata infected with A. costaricensis. Twenty-five mollusks were individually infected with 5000 L1 and sacrificed at 30 min and 1, 2, 4, 6, and 8 h post-infection and at days 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 20, 21, 22, 25, 26, 28, and 30 post-infection; the mollusks were then fixed and stained. Diverse organs involved throughout the course of the migratory routes of larvae from oral penetration on were specified and the mechanisms of larval access to the fibromuscular layer through the kidney, rectum, and vascular system were defined. The elimination of L3, derived from oral and/or cutaneous infections, appears to depend on granulomas located close to the excretory ducts of mucous cells.  (+info)

RESUMO Um número crescente de casos de angiostrongilíase abdominal tem sido detectado no sul do Brasil. O principal hospedeiro do Angiostrongylus costaricensis na América Central, o rato do algodão (Sigmodon hispidus), não ocorre na América do Sul, exceto no norte do Peru, Colômbia e Venezuela. Foram realizadas capturas na área endêmica do Rio Grande do Sul (RS), visando identificar hospedeiros para obtenção de vermes em laboratório e produção de antígeno. Pela primeira vez no Brasil foi constatada a infecção em roedores: Oryzomys nigripes e Oryzomys ratticeps. O. nigripes é um roedor silvestre de pequeno porte e parece ser o principal hospedeiro definitivo do A. costaricensis na região serrana do RS.

Angiostrongylus costaricensis is a species of parasitic nematode. Its distribution includes Brazil. Humans and rodents are the definitive hosts. The main rodent host is the Cotton Rat. Molluscs are the intermediate host and are infected through ingestion or penetration of the foot by L1 infective larvae from infected feces. Limax maximus Slugs from the family Veronicellidae[citation needed] Pathology is due to both the adults and the eggs. Adults in the ileo-caecal arterioles cause an inflammatory (eosinophilic) response in humans. In the Cotton Rat the adult worms cause local haemorrhages. The intestinal wall is also affected. In humans there is a thickening of the intestinal wall (ileum, appendix and caecum). In rats with heavy infestations there is a yellow discolouring of the surface of the intestinal walls. Abdominal pain which presents as a palpable mass on clinical examination Anorexia Diarrhoea Vomiting In the blood and tissue biopsy there is eosinophilia. Other methods of diagnosis from ...
A determinant factor in the pathology of canine angiostrongylosis seems to be related to the location of the parasite in the definitive host. Their presence inside the arteries and its branches, promoting mechanical and metabolic action on the wall of the vessels, may alter its homeostasis. Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) is a procedure that retrieves cells and other elements from de lungs for evaluation, and helps in the diagnosis of many pulmonary diseases. The aim of this study was to evaluate CD4+/CD8+ lymphocyte profile during the infection by Angiostrongylus vasorum, using cells retrieved using BAL. The identification of subpopulations of T lymphocytes by evaluating the co-expression of CD4 and CD8 receptor proteins has shown that despite the increase in both populations, there was a predominance of CD4+ T-cells, instead of CD8+ T-cells. These increases of CD4+ T-cells associated with the increase of the ratio between CD4+/CD8+ suggest polarization of a Th2 response. However, the immune cells,
Diagnosis Angiostrongylus cantonensis A diagnosis of A. History of ingestion of raw or undercooked intermediate hosts or possibly transport hosts is a crucial clue as well. However, ill persons may not be aware of ingestion of foods that could lead to infection. It is important to note, however, that eosinophilia in the CSF and in the blood may not be present on initial presentation or in late stages of infection. The CSF pressure is generally elevated. Recovery of A. Serologic tests have been developed but are not commercially available.. A few specialty or research laboratories offer serologic tests, but the sensitivity and specificity of the tests may not be optimal and the infection is often identified only on convalescent sera. Because of the difficulty in making the diagnosis, it is important to rule-out other causes of eosinophilic meningitis. Neuroimaging studies can be useful as there usually is an absence of focal lesions on CT scan, which helps to distinguish A.. Because eggs are not ...

Angiostrongylus vasorum, one of the five main parasites affecting dogs in the UK, can cause severe illness and even death in infected dogs. This module provides answers to key questions about the biology, epidemiology, clinical impact, diagnosis and management of canine angiostrongylosis. It will enable veterinary professionals to discuss confidently the risks with clients and reach a fully informed decision about preventive therapy.
Angiostrongylus vasorum is a metastrongyloid nematode of dogs and other canids of major clinical importance in many countries. In order to gain first insights into the molecular biology of this worm, we conducted the first large-scale exploration of its transcriptome, and predicted essential molecules linked to metabolic and biological processes as well as host immune responses. We also predicted and prioritized drug targets and drug candidates. Following Illumina sequencing (RNA-seq), 52.3million sequence reads representing adult A. vasorum were assembled and annotated. The assembly yielded 20,033 contigs, which encoded proteins with 11,505 homologues in Caenorhabditis elegans, and additional 2252 homologues in various other parasitic helminths for which curated data sets were publicly available. Functional annotation was achieved for 11,752 (58.6%) proteins predicted for A. vasorum, including peptidases (4.5%) and peptidase inhibitors (1.6%), protein kinases (1.7%), G protein-coupled receptors ...
SUMMARY Most of the cases of abdominal angiostrongyliasis in Brazil were reported from the southern States of São Paulo, Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul (RS). A study in 27 cases from RS revealed a distinct local epidemiology. Peasants were usually affected, either adults or children, from the mountainous areas in the north of the Suite. There was a seasonal increase in the number of cases, from late spring to autumn, that does not coincide with the rainy season. Besides the most common clinical features of abdominal pain, fever and cosinophilia in the leucogram, painful relapsing episodes were detected in some patients. The abdominal pain could be either localized or diffuse during the rapid evolution to a surgical abdominal condition, with a letality of 7.4%. The use of a serological test and the greater awareness of physicians working in endemic areas is expected to improve the recognition of uncomplicated and benign courses of the disease. This study confirms the known ...
Abstract A precipitin reaction was observed when sera of cotton rats infected either naturally or experimentally with Angiostrongylus costaricensis were tested by gel double-diffusion against sera obtained from three biopsy-confirmed human cases of A. costaricensis. With immunoelectrophoresis, the antigen was demonstrated in the serum of infected rats. The antibody in the human serum was mostly of the IgG type. No cross reactions were seen with sera from individuals infected with the common intestinal helminths, or individuals serologically positive for Toxocara, A. cantonensis, Chagas' disease, amebiasis, leishmaniasis, toxoplasmosis, or syphilis.
Animated coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a dog lungworm (Angiostrongylus vasorum) Also known as the French heartworm, this is a common filarial nematode parasite of dogs and rarely humans. The adult worms are large, measuring up to 25 centimetres long, and they typically live in the dogs right heart and pulmonary artery. It causes the disease canine angiostrongylosis in dogs. Female worms produce microfilariae that are found in the dogs blood and can be ingested by mosquitoes. The microfilariae mature into infective juveniles in the mosquito and the infection is transmitted to a new host when the mosquito feeds such as dogs and humans. The natural intermediate hosts of Angiostrongylus vasorum are land slugs, land snails and freshwater snails. - Stock Video Clip K006/9270
The present study illustrates that infection with A. vasorum remains endemic in Ireland, is not confined to the East Coast, can occur in any age of dog and has a widely varying clinical picture.. In the present study, approximately 90% of affected animals either directly referred or from external post mortem or faecal submissions were from the East Coast of Ireland. These results may imply an endemic focus in this area. However, the two major counties represented are within the referral catchment area for the UCD Veterinary Hospital, likely creating a degree of bias. Only five animals were from beyond this area with two from the West of Ireland. The only other published report of dogs affected in the West of Ireland was documented decades ago [6]. This may truly reflect a low prevalence beyond the East Coast. However, it could also reflect limited referral of cases from this geographic location or a failure to consider the differential because of a perception that angiostrongylosis does not ...
Most White Sox fans are crying over the Yoenis Cespedes signing.. I am not, especially because of the contract itself, the fact that Cespedes desired to remain a Met above all else and other options the White Sox might still have, including a potential trade for Carlos Gonzales.. A power hitting left-handed hitter like Carlos Gonzales might be the ideal fit for the White Sox, not just because he can play RF as well as LF, but because he would provide the ideal bridge in the middle of their lineup between right-handed power hitters Jose Abreu and Todd Frazier. Gonzales would cost significantly less in terms of dollars than what Cespedes is getting from the Mets. Cargo has a $38M ($17M in 2016+$20M in 2017+$1M trade bonus) guaranteed commitment over the next two seasons.. If Gonzales could be acquired without the loss of a substantial 2016 roster contributor or any of the White Sox top 3 prospects (Tim Anderson, Carson Fulmer or Spencer Adams) his acquisition would trump that of any other FA, ...
The genetic variable of seven Phaseolus taxa has been evaluated on the basis of molecular data and the results have used to clarify the phyletic relationships between several taxa of the P. coccineus L. complex. Chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) from 33 populations was digested with six restriction endonucleases, revealing some polymorphisms that made it possible to divide most of the taxa into two main groups: the subspecies of P. coccineus on the one hand and P. vulgaris L., P. polyanthus Greenman and P. costaricensis (Freytag and Debouck) on the other hand. P. polyanthus is closer to P. vulgaris than the other taxa of the second group and should be considered as a separate species. The position of the wild species P. costaricensis is intermediate between P. coccineus and P. polyanthus. P. glabellus shows sufficient polymorphisms at the cpDNA level to be recognized as a separate species, as previously suggested from total seed-protein electrophoretic studies. These results favour the hypothesis of a ...

It is time to get out and about and enjoy the Summer sunshine, but watch out for some dangers lurking about. Out in the garden be aware that slug pellets, bone meal and weedkillers are common sources of poisoning in dogs and cats. Also try to ensure that pets dont dig up spring bulbs and eat them since many are poisonous. If you have cats, be aware that nearly all types of lilies are highly toxic to cats. Even a small bit of pollen can cause sudden onset kidney failure in cats. Seek immediate veterinary advise if any case of poisoning is suspected.

Angiostrongylus is a nematode. Adult worms live in the pulmonary arteries of rats. Their larvae migrate through the lungs and are swallowed. They pass out in poo, which is grazed on by snails and slugs-and crustaceans, if it drops into water. The juvenile worms develop in this intermediate host but do not reach adulthood until theyre in the definitive (final stage) host, usually a rat ...
Medication such as anthelmintics (dewormers) may be used to kill off the parasites, but they may also lead to other complications. Consult your veterinarian for the best course of treatment. Kittens with a mild form of angiostrongylosis may even recover fully with just supportive care and corticosteroid therapy. In other cases, surgical removal of intercranial parasites (e.g., Cuterebra) may be necessary.. ...

My data are essentially cross-sectional in that I observe both outcomes and endogenous regressor at the individual level and observe each individual only once, even though my instrument varies by year and (mostly) county. The plot does not reveal any outliers. However, I realized that the following: When running --ivreg2 y ex excontrols (en en_ex = z z_ex)-- I get estimates for two first-stage regressions, whose point estimates I can also reproduce as follows: --reg en z z_ex ex excontrols- --reg en_ex z z_ex ex excontrols- The huge R2 for the latter of those seems to come from the huuge R2 I get on the subsample indicator, ex, on its own there. If I drop that subsample indicator from my regressions, then the R2 reaches less unreasonable levels (around 0.7), however conceptually I would have thought that I should control for the direct difference between the two subsamples, as I do not wish to misinterpret any level differences between the two subsamples as ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Angiostrongylus vasorum and Eucoleus aerophilus in foxes (Vulpes vulpes) in Great Britain. AU - Morgan, ER. AU - Tomlinson, A. AU - Hunter, S. AU - Nichols, T. AU - Roberts, E. AU - Fox, MT. AU - Taylor, MA. PY - 2008/6/1. Y1 - 2008/6/1. N2 - The nematode parasite Angiostrongylus vasorum is a source of increasing concern in several parts of the world, where it causes significant disease in dogs. Wild canids, especially foxes, are likely to have a role in the epidemiology of canine infection, and the parasite could also affect fox health and population dynamics. The heart and pulmonary vasculature of 546 foxes culled mostly by gamekeepers in Great Britain in 2005-2006 were examined by dissection and a modified flushing technique. Forty foxes were found to be infected, giving an overall prevalence in the UK fox population of 7.3% (5.3-9.9). Prevalence varied widely between regions, from 0% (0-3) in Scotland and northern England to 23% (16-32) in south-east England. This closely ...
AbstractAngiostrongylosis caused by metastrongyloid nematode Angiostrongylus vasorum is an emerging parasitic disease in Europe and the red fox (Vulpes vulpes) is considered as a main reservoir species for this parasite. Little is known about the role of other wild canids in the epidemiology of angiostrongylosis. The present paper provides the first description of pathomorphological lesions caused by A. vasorum in a golden jackal (Canis aureus). The paper describes a case of co-infection with A. vasorum and Dirofilaria immitis in a one-year-old female golden jackal, legally hunted near the City of Kovin, South Banat, Serbia. The postmortem examination revealed severe pneumonia, proliferative endarteritis, the presence of two adult males of D. immitis in the right atrium, and the presence of 15 adult forms of A. vasorum (11 females and 4 males) in the pulmonary arteries. Native microscopy of an impression smear of the lung tissue found numerous larvae compatible with the A. vasorum first larval stage.

The diagnosis of Angiostrongylus cantonensis infection was established in all patients by serologic studies of serum and cerebral spinal fluid (CSF). Clinical manifestations included meningitis, radiculitis and cranial nerve palsy. Symptoms included fever, headache, orbital pain, gastrointestinal upset, hyperesthesia, muscle weakness, skin rash and diplopia. Laboratory abnormalities included peripheral eosinophilia, CSF eosinophilia, transient elevation of liver enzymes and creatinine phosphokinase, elevation of IgE. No space occupying lesions were detected by magnetic ...

The New York Mets are playing without All-Star outfielder Yoenis Cespedes because he was forced to leave Thursdays game against the Philadelphia Phillies with a left leg injury...
I think the best way to put it is that it was a night of love and appreciation. As much as David Wright was beloved by Mets fans, there was always a sense that he was taken for granted, even overlooked because he was so steady, so non-controversial. The two seasons at the end, when he was unable to play, gave people a chance to remember just how important David was to the fabric of the franchise and the experience of being a Mets fan over the previous decade and a half. So when the fans had one more chance to let David know how they felt about him, they held nothing back. It was a sea of warmth all night.. There were so many memorable moments. Davids toddler daughter throwing out the first pitch. The reaction to his every movement. The vitriol directed at Peter OBrien when he caught the foul pop-up in Davids final at-bat. David coming up to the booth in full uniform. The utter joy and love on the faces of the fans in front of our booth when they realized David was there. And most of all, the ...
All eyes were on Yoenis Cespedes on Friday as the outfielders free agency came to an end when he agreed to a three-year deal to return to the Mets. The Cespedes news may have made the biggest splash of the day, but he certainly wasnt the only name surfacing. Heres a look at the latest Hot Stove developments from around the league:

Background: Standardizing the background diet of participants during a dietary randomized controlled trial is vital to trial outcomes. For this process, dietary modeling based on food groups and their target servings is employed via a dietary prescription before an intervention, often using a manual process. Partial automation has employed the use of linear programming. Validity of the modeling approach is critical to allow trial outcomes to be translated to practice. Objective: This paper describes the first-stage development of a tool to automatically perform dietary modeling using food group and macronutrient requirements as a test case. The Dietary Modeling Tool (DMT) was then compared with existing approaches to dietary modeling (manual and partially automated), which were previously available to dietitians working within a dietary intervention trial. Methods: Constraint optimization techniques were implemented to determine whether nonlinear constraints are best suited to the development of the

Decent sample! The best comparable to Alonso is probably Parra, right? Beltran, Cespedes, and Zobrist were all high-end producers with long track records at the time of the trade. Bruce had some pretty great years earlier in career before slipping a bit, partly due to injuries.. Parra, meanwhile, was a solid player from 2009-14 who was an average-ish hitter and an above-average defender. He then had a huge first half with the Brewers in 2015, hitting .328/.369/.517 (137 wRC+) in 100 games, which is when they flipped him to the Orioles. Parra then hit .237/.268/.357 (66 wRC+) with the Os. Heh.. There was no real reason to believe Parra was a changed hitter, however. That 2015 first half was a .372 BABIP fueled hot streak. Baltimore then dealt with the correction. With Alonso, there are tangible reasons to believe he is a different hitter now, specifically the sudden surge in fly balls. Parra had a hot streak. Alonso is a new player.. Davies actually represented the Orioles in the 2015 Futures ...
