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)

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 ...
RESULTS: All dogs had patent infections at 7 wpi and clinical respiratory signs at 8 wpi. Moderate hypoxemia (median PaO2 of 73 and 74 mmHg) present at 8 and 13 wpi had resolved by 9 wpt. Echocardiographically, no evidence of PH and no abnormalities in cardiac size and function were discernible at any time point. PAP invasively measured at 8 wpi was not different from that of control dogs. Severe radiographic pulmonary parenchymal and suspected thrombotic lesions at 13 wpi were corroborated by necropsy. Most histopathologic changes had resolved at 9 wpt, but focal inflammatory, thrombotic, and fibrotic changes still were present in all dogs ...
Angiostrongylus costaricensis is a metastrongylid nematode, parasitic of wild rodents. The worms live inside the mesenteric arterial system and terrestrial mollusks are intermediate hosts13. Human accidental infection may result in abdominal disease that has already been reported from most countries of Central and South America14. Diagnosis is only established through anatomicopathological examination of surgical or biopsy specimens, since there is no evidence of larval elimination in the feces, as seen with experimental infection of rodents6 13. Results from cross-sectional studies have been published5, including an outbreak in Guatemala9, besides many case reports from single or small groups of patients2 14 16. In 1995, a 41-year-old woman was diagnosed with abdominal angiostrongyliasis, living in a rural area of southern Brazil. That was the opportunity for attempting a first description of the natural history of this parasitosis, in a population-based longitudinal study. MATERIAL AND ...

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 ...
To characterize the computed tomography (CT) features of thoracic lesions caused by infection with Angiostrongylus vasorum, pre- and postcontrast CT was performed in six experimentally infected Beagles 13 weeks postinoculation and in four of these 9 weeks postchemotherapy. Findings were compared with survey radiographs and necropsy findings. A multicentric bronchoalveolar pattern more pronounced at the lung periphery was present radiographically. On CT, the predominant abnormality underlying this alveolar pattern was multiple large nodules merging to areas of consolidation, and containing air bronchograms of varying extent. These nodular changes corresponded to histopathologic granulomata, consisting mainly of macrophages, multinucleated giant cells, and lymphocytes that had accumulated around larvae and eggs. Morphologically, no bronchial changes were observed on CT or histologically. Quantitatively, however, on CT there was evidence of bronchial thickening at 13 weeks postinoculation and mild ...
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.

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.
Abstract A living, fifth-stage female Angiostrongylus cantonensis 5 mm in length was discovered in the cerebrospinal fluid of a 21-year-old Thai male with eosinophilic meningitis, the second such case to be recorded from Thailand.

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 ...

The clinical stages of eosinophilic meningitis include a latent stage lasting 3 to 36 d (average 15 d), with no obvious clinical signs. The symptoms of the following prodromal stage are mild, and may include fever, headache, dizziness, abdominalgia, diarrhea and lack of strength. In some patients, the symptoms can resolve without any treatment. At the next, acute stage, patients have severe fever and headache with nausea, vomiting and abnormal sensations of the skin (e.g., numbness, pain, tingling, burning). Some patients have stiff neck, numbness of face or limbs, photophobia and diplopia. Symptoms at the acute stage may last from one week to 2 months or even longer. In the recovery stage, symptoms start to resolve and patients gradually regain normal status. Recovery can last for several weeks, depending on the individual. Some measurements (such as eosinophils counts, CSF pressure, positive head MRI signals and lung shadow) and mildly abnormal sensations could last longer.. Angiostrongyliasis ...

The Marcgraviaceae is a neotropical plant family of lianas and shrubs distributed throughout Central and South America, mainly in evergreen and semi-evergreen tropical forests. In this study, extracts of 12 Marcgraviaceae species were assessed for inhibition of bacterial quorum sensing (QS) in Chromobacterium violaceum, bacterial biofilm formation in Pseudomonas aeruginosa PA14, and fungal growth in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Six species showed promising inhibitory activities in at least one of the three bioassays (Marcgravia nervosa Triana & Planch., Marcgravia polyantha Delp., Marcgravia schippii Standl., Marcgraviastrum subsessile (Benth.) Bedell, Schwartzia brasiliensis (Choisy) Bedell ex Gir-Cañas, and Schwartzia costaricensis (Gilg.) Bedell). Analyses of the crude extract of the leaves of Marcgravia nervosa using HPLC-APCI-MS showed the presence of five pentacyclic triterpenes: ursolic acid (2), betulinic acid (3), α-amyrin (4), β-amyrin (5), lupeol (6).

Sherry producers use mostly new American oak, usually toasted and not charred, but at least some Spanish Q.robur from Galicia is used. In the 1960s and the 1970s Costa Rican red oak varieties Q.costaricensis, Q.eugeniifolia and white oak Q.copeyensis were used (and esteemed) in the Sherry region, but I have no information of the scale of this nor whether they are still used. The sherry producers have been using at least some American oak from the 1600s and nowadays use it almost exclusively. A note from 1807 by Spanish botanist Esteban Boutelou (1776-1813): "The great wine shippers cooper themselves the casks they require for their trade...They use oak almost exclusively; and they esteem more than any that which comes from the United States of America, next the Northern oak, then the Italian and lastly the Spanish... wines ferment better in butts and wooden vats than in earthenware, which belief is shared by the Sanlucar growers.". Hardman (1878) reports that American oak is used exclusively ...

Microfilariae ingested by the mosquito migrate from the midgut (intestine) to the malpighian tubule system (part of the mosquitos digestive system) within 48 hours, where further development into first-stage larvae occurs in roughly four (4) days.7 Four (8) to six (6) days later, first-stage larvae molt to the second-stage, and in another four to six days molt into third-stage juvenile larvae. These larvae migrate to the mosquitos mouthparts where they are deposited into a hosts skin during the mosquitos next blood meal.257. Third-stage larval worms molt to fourth-stage larva within three (3) days after entering the host and remain in connective tissue for roughly five (5) months before a final molt to fifth-stage immature adult worms, at which point they migrate to the pulmonary arteries of the heart.9 Mature adult female worms can grow to around 12 inches long (males, somewhat shorter),8 and begin producing microfilariae six (6) to nine (9) months following infection.29 ...

NEW YORK || Bartolo Colon limited the Twins to three singles in seven innings, Jose Reyes and Asdrubal Cabrera hit consecutive home runs off rookie Jose Berrios in the third, and the New York Mets beat Minnesota 3-0 Friday night in the opener of their final homestand this season. Addison Reed pitched the eighth and Jeurys Familia worked around a pair of walks to complete the three-hitter, retiring pinch-hitter Kennys Vargas on a flyout to deep left for his 49th save in 53 chances. The series opener was played on the 20th anniversary of the 3,000th big league hit by Paul Molitor, now the Twins manager. Reyes homered over the right-field wall on a curveball and, three pitches later, Cabrera sent a fastball into the right-field second deck. Yoenis Cespedes added an RBI single in the seventh off Pat Light. Cespedes tried for a nonchalant basket catch on Max Keplers soft leadoff fly to left in the fourth only to have the ball tick off the webbing of his glove for an error. Mets: RHP Jacob deGrom

The fur on a red panda was a new experience for me as it is soft thick and dense to protect them from cooler temperatures and fuzzy / rugged looking at times. So it wasnt a simple brushstroke I was after showing singular hairs as such, but a rough matted appearance to represent the wooley fuzzy look. I experimented with different techniques and found the best approach was to have your brush almost dry with the paint on it giving short quick bursts of direction, layering and movement is so important when capturing fur on any animal. ...

Author Summary Eosinophilic meningitis is caused by the rat lungworm (Angiostrongylus cantonensis). This parasite is endemic in Southeast Asia, Australia, the Caribbean, and on Pacific Islands. Moreover, the disease is emerging in mainland China, which might be related to the spread of two invasive snail species (Achatina fulica and Pomacea canaliculata). Thus far, the biggest angiostrongyliasis outbreak in China occurred in 2006 in Beijing, involving 160 patients. However, detailed information about the national distribution of A. cantonensis and its intermediate hosts is still lacking, and the importance of the two invasive snail species for disease transmission is not well understood. Therefore, a national survey on the distribution of A. cantonensis and its intermediate hosts in China was carried out in 2006/2007. It was found that A. fulica and P. canaliculata were implicated in most angiostrongyliasis outbreaks, and that the distribution of A. cantonensis closely matched that of these snails. The
The genus name Dichanthelium was employed in both Flora mesoamericana and the Manual for seven spp. (in Costa Rica) that had previously been included in Panicum, e.g., by the late Richard W. Pohl (ISC) in his Flora costaricensis Poaceae treatment (1980). More recently, an important molecular study [see The Cutting Edge 10(3): 4, Jul. 2003] recommended that Panicum be restricted to the spp. ( ca. 100) comprising the autonymic subgenus, while supporting the distinctness of Dichanthelium, contingent upon the removal of several spp. The spp. to be removed from Dichanthelium formed a monophyletic group, previously distinguished as Panicum sect. Cordovensia (Hitchc. & Chase) Parodi, that appeared more closely related to Echinochloa than to either Dichanthelium or Panicum s. str. These exiled spp. are the subject of this synoptic treatment, wherein sect. Cordovensia is elevated to generic rank under the name Parodiophyllochloa Zuloaga & Morrone (something shorter would have been nice). New combinations ...
Photo source: Betty Brinkman 2014 writes While most Stanhopeas have fragrances delectable enough to eat, Stanhopea connata exudes cresole and indole. Cresole is the fragrance compound associated with coal tar (think freshly poured asphalt), and indole has a fragrance described in botanical literature as fecal. I was not, to be honest, in a hurry to have a closed door photo session with Stanhopea connata. Stanhopea costaricensis Rchb.f. 1860 is found in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Costa Rica, and Panama where the species grows in intermediate evergreen or cloud and rainforests, mostly on the Caribbean watershed. In Panama and Costa Rica, this orchid can be found at 500-1,500 m in moist, mist-forest habitats. It has large, fragrant flowers that González & Retana (1996) describe as very sweet, strong, confectionery body powder, cloves, floral, slightly spicy, bergamot. Flower colour can range from nearly off-white or pale yellow to deeper yellow, with red speckles on sepals, petals, and epichile, and ...
A University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo College of Pharmacy researcher has developed a fun-filled activity book to teach children about a serious health topic associated with cleaning and cooking vegetables in the tropical Hawaiian environment.. Dr. Susan Jarvi, associate professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, is distributing a book and poster about Rat Lungworm Disease (Angiostrongylus cantonensis) to elementary school children in Hilo. But she wants everyone in Hawaiʻi to know more about the rare parasitic infection that can cause paralysis, coma or death.. "Theres a real need for better education of the public and research that no one else is doing if we want to decrease risk of infection," said Jarvi, who has been conducting research on ways to detect the virus in the blood as well as testing possible vaccines and evaluating vegetable washes that may be the most effective in killing the A. cantonensis larvae that causes the damage.. The disease-causing organism reproduces in rats ...
So far, the state Department of Health confirms six people infected by rat lungworm, with three cases still under investigation.. The disease stems from a parasitic worm, Angiostrongylus cantonensis, the adult form of which is only found in rodents. Infected rats pass the larvae in their feces, which are then ingested by snails, slugs and other mollusks.. We humans can then be infected by eating these snails or slugs, most often while they are hidden in produce. But really you can be infected by ingesting anything that has been tainted by the slime trail of the slugs or snails, including drinking water or eating freshwater animals such as prawns, frogs or crabs.. Most recently some individuals on Hawaii Island contracted the disease after drinking homemade kava, a ceremonial beverage that was left out in uncovered buckets. After consuming the kava, it was noticed that there was a slug at the bottom of the ceremonial bowl; the individuals became ill a few weeks later with two confirmed cases of ...

The red panda is found in a mountainous band from western Nepal through northeastern India and Bhutan and into China, Laos and northern Myanmar. The species also lives throughout mountainous areas of southwestern China. Red pandas only live in temperate forests in the foothills of the Himalayas. They reside at altitudes generally between 1500 and 4800 meters where the temperature is generally cool, and there is little annual variation. A bamboo understory grows in these forests and provides the bulk of the red pandas diet. However, these patches of bamboo are only found in narrow bands throughout the red pandas range. Thus, although red pandas are distributed across thousands of miles of territory, they are restricted to these small, fragile areas.. The red pandas diet mostly consists of bamboo, very unusual for a mammal. Their broad teeth and strong jaws allow them to chew bamboos tough leaves and stalks. They also have a small, bony projection on their wrists that helps them grip bamboo ...

Finally, within the realm of labor and birth, one quickly learns to expect the unexpected. Sometimes a woman will have a quick and easy labor when professionals believed only a cesarean was possible. For example, women who have previously had a cesarean are sometimes told that they will always give birth that way. Yet at our clinic, one out of two women who have previously had cesareans succeed in giving birth vaginally. Nor do breech deliveries always justify the operation, although this has, nevertheless, become almost the rule in many conventional hospitals. From our experience with breech babies, we have found that by observing the natural progression of first-stage labor, we will get the best indication of what to expect at the last moment. This means we do nothing that will interfere with first-stage labor: no Pitocin, no bathing in the pool, no mention of the word "breech." If all goes smoothly, we have reason to believe the second stage of labor will not pose any problems. Our only ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has often asserted that its programs encourage aid by signaling policy credibility, commonly referred to as aid catalysis. Our study investigates this claim for sector-specific aid and for bilateral and multilateral donors using data on 136 recipient countries for the 1986-2009 period. We employ a two-part quantitative model to match the donor decision-making process, consisting of a first-stage recipient selection equation and a second-stage allocation equation on selected recipients. We find strong support that IMF programs catalyze aid on aggregate, but the evidence varies across different types of aid. Aid catalysis is stronger and more robust in sectors linked to the IMFs core competency areas, namely debt-related relief and general budget support, but weaker and less robust for infrastructure, production, multisector, and humanitarian aid, and non-existent for health and education. Across donors, IMF programs are associated

Angiostrongylus cantonensis is one of the causative agents of eosinophilic meningitis. Humans get infected when they ingest raw or partially cooked snails or monitor lizards (Varanus bengalensis). There is a popular belief that the tongue and the liver of the monitor lizard has aphrodisiac properties. A 20-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with a history of fever, headache and vomiting. His cerebrospinal fluid revealed eosinophilia. He gave a history of the ingestion of a monitor lizard, ten days prior to the onset of the symptoms. So, a diagnosis of eosinophilic meningitis due to Angiostrongylus cantonensis was made. He was treated with oral albendazole and prednisolone. His symptoms improved gradually within two weeks from his admission.. ...

Migratory routes often include staging sites where migrants can rest and feed, and the loss of such sites can cause severe bottleneck effects on migratory populations [14,31,32]. That is, sudden declines in population flow can be triggered by small amounts of overall habitat loss owing to migratory connectivity [11,14,33]. By developing a method to estimate the amount of population flow travelling through a migratory route subject to habitat loss, we have shown that these effects can be very large across an assemblage of declining long-distance migrants. Importantly from a conservation perspective, the flyway-wide consequences of habitat loss through SLR differ dramatically among the taxa we studied, even though they all use the same geographical region. This is because of variation in the specific patterns of connectivity among sites as well as the absolute extent of habitat loss at the sites used by each taxon. This variation demonstrates that understanding the pattern of migratory ...

In total, the bird flies more than 9,500 kilometers across the African continent from the Balearic and Columbretes Islands before reaching the island of Madagascar. Some of the previously obscure secrets now revealed by the scientists show that these falcons migrate by both day and night, and cross supposed ecological barriers such as the Sahara Desert.

Xiao and her cub spend nearly all of their time tucked in a nest box within the red panda exhibit, where Xiao nurses, grooms, and sleeps next to her cub. This is natural behavior for red pandas, who nest in hollow trees in the wild. Cubs typically remain in the nest box for about three months, which means zoo guests have little chance of seeing the cub until late August or early September.. Three to four times a week, zoo keepers distract Xiao with a tasty bamboo branch and quickly weigh the cub. So far, the cub is gaining weight, and has more than tripled her birth weight of 139 grams to 454 grams (about one pound). Twice a week, they perform a more thorough exam on the cub, checking for any abnormalities.. The cubs eyes are now open, and she makes ...
Login to your account. Phagocyte-derived extracellular traps ETs were recently demonstrated mainly in vertebrate hosts as an important effector mechanism against invading parasites.. In the present study mucus Achatina in psoriazis aimed to characterize gastropod-derived invertebrate extracellular phagocyte trap InEPT formation in response to larval stages of important canine and feline metastrongyloid lungworms. Gastropod haemocytes were isolated from the slug species Arion lusitanicus and Limax maximus mucus Achatina in psoriazis, and the snail Achatina fulicaand exposed to larval stages of Angiostrongylus vasorumAelurostrongylus abstrusus and Troglostrongylus brevior and investigated for gastropod-derived InEPT formation.. Phase contrast as well as scanning electron microscopy SEM analyses of lungworm larvae-exposed haemocytes revealed ET-like structures to be extruded by haemocytes thereby contacting and ensnaring the parasites. Mucus Achatina in psoriazis studies of haemocyte-derived ...

Gnathostomiasis is an infectious disease caused by the nematodes Gnathostoma shispidum and the Gnathostoma spinigerum. These roundworms impact various vertebrate animals and the disease is caused in humans by immature worms in migration. The parasite can be found in Japan, Thailand, other parts of Asia, and more recently in Mexico. The nematodes inhabit a tumor within the gastric wall of the definitive host, usually a pig, dog, or a cat. There, eggs are deposited that pass through with excrement. The eggs are embryonated in water and release larvae. The larvae are consumed by small crustaceans that act as intermediate hosts. The larvae develop into second-stage form and are then consumed by a second intermediate host such as a snake, fish, or a frog. Inside this host, the larvae mature further. The second intermediate host is then consumed by a definitive host, inside which the larvae mature into adulthood within the stomach wall. It is possible that the second intermediate host is consumed by a ...
