Acute intestinal anisakiasis in Spain: a fourth-stage Anisakis simplex larva. (1/52)

A case of acute intestinal anisakiasis has been reported; a nematode larva being found in the submucosa of the ileum of a woman in Jaen (Spain). The source of infection was the ingestion of raw Engraulis encrasicholus. On the basis of its morphology, the worm has been identified as a fourth-stage larva of Anisakis simplex. In Spain, this is the ninth report of human anisakiasis and also probably the first case of anisakiasis caused by a fourth-stage larva of A. simplex.  (+info)

Purification and cloning of an apoptosis-inducing protein derived from fish infected with Anisakis simplex, a causative nematode of human anisakiasis. (2/52)

While investigating the effect of marine products on cell growth, we found that visceral extracts of Chub mackerel, an ocean fish, had a powerful and dose-dependent apoptosis-inducing effect on a variety of mammalian tumor cells. This activity was strikingly dependent on infection of the C. mackerel with the larval nematode, Anisakis simplex. After purification of the protein responsible for the apoptosis-inducing activity, we cloned the corresponding gene and found it to be a flavoprotein. This protein, termed apoptosis-inducing protein (AIP), was also found to possess an endoplasmic reticulum retention signal (C-terminal KDEL sequence) and H2O2-producing activity, indicating that we had isolated a novel reticuloplasimin with potent apoptosis-inducing activity. AIP was induced in fish only after infection with larval nematode and was localized to capsules that formed around larvae to prevent their migration to host tissues. Our results suggest that AIP may function to impede nematode infection.  (+info)

Apoptosis-inducing protein, AIP, from parasite-infected fish induces apoptosis in mammalian cells by two different molecular mechanisms. (3/52)

AIP (apoptosis-inducing protein) is a protein purified and cloned from Chub mackerel infected with the larval nematode, Anisakis simplex, which induces apoptosis in various mammalian cells including human tumor cell lines. AIP has shown structural and functional homology to L-amino acid oxidase (LAO) which oxidizes several L-amino acids including L-lysine and AIP-induced apoptosis has been suggested to be mediated by H2O2 generated by LAO activity of AIP. In this study, we confirmed that recombinant AIP generated enough H2O2 in culture medium to induce rapid apoptosis in cells and this apoptosis was clearly inhibited by co-cultivation with antioxidants such as catalase and N-acetyl-cysteine. Surprisingly, however, we found that AIP still could induce H2O2-independent apoptosis more slowly than H2O2-dependent one in HL-60 cells even in the presence of antioxidants. In addition, the HL-60-derived cell line HP100-1, which is a H2O2-resistant variant, underwent apoptosis on treatment with AIP with a similar delayed time course. The latter apoptosis was completely blocked by addition of L-lysine to the culture medium, which is the best substrate of AIP as LAO, indicating that decreased concentration of L-lysine in the culture medium by AIP-treatment induced apoptosis. We also showed that the both apoptosis by AIP were associated with the release of cytochrome c from mitochondria and activation of caspase-9, and overexpressed Bcl-2 could inhibit both of the AIP-induced apoptosis. These results indicate that AIP induces apoptosis in cells by two distinct mechanisms; one rapid and mediated by H2O2, the other delayed and mediated by deprivation of L-lysine, both of which utilize caspase-9/cytochrome c system.  (+info)

A human case of gastric infection by Pseudoterranova decipiens larva. (4/52)

We report a case of gastric pseudoterranoviasis proven by gastrofiberscopy on Dec. 13, 1994. The 34-year-old male patient, residing in Chungju-shi, was admitted to Konkuk University Hospital complaining of prickling epigastric pain. The symptoms suddenly attacked him two days after eating raw marine fish at Chonan-shi. By the gastrofiberscopic examination, a long white-yellowish nematode was found from the fundus region of stomach. The worm was 34.50 x 0.84 mm in size, and was identified as a 3rd stage larva of Pseudoterranova decipiens judging from the position of the intestinal cecum. This is the 12th confirmed case of human pseudoterranoviasis in Korea.  (+info)

Human infection by Pseudoterranova decipiens (Nematoda, Anisakidae) in Chile: report of seven cases. (5/52)

From 1997 to 1999, we identified seven human cases of infection by fourth stage larvae of Pseudoterranova decipiens in Chile. All identified larvae were coughed up by the patients. Subjects were 10-55 years old; five were female. Some patients complained of coughing, expectoration, pharyngeal pain, nausea or anal and nasal pruritus. Larvae of three patients were coughed up from 36 h to 7 days after having eaten raw (cebiche or sushi) or lightly fried fish. P. decipiens has a marine life cycle. Infective third stage larva develop to adult stage in pinniped mammals. The nematode eggs are voided with the host faeces and develop and hatch releasing third stage larvae. Some crustaceans and fish act as hosts of third stage larvae. Man is an accidental host for third or fourth stage larvae.  (+info)

Interleukin-4 production in BALB/c mice immunized with Anisakis simplex. (6/52)

We investigated the interleukin (IL-4) levels in BALB/c mice immunized with Anisakis extract in single or multiple doses and in mice orally infected with a larva. From animals immunized maximum responses were obtained with the multiple doses with an only IL-4 peak. Conversely, in the mice inoculated with a larva per os, the IL-4 levels showed two peaks of different rates.  (+info)

Evaluation by ELISA of anisakis simplex larval antigen purified by affinity chromatography. (7/52)

In order to improve the specificity and sensitivity of the techniques for the human anisakidosis diagnosis, a method of affinity chromatography for the purification of species-specific antigens from Anisakis simplex third-stage larvae (L3) has been developed. New Zealand rabbits were immunized with A. simplex or Ascaris suum antigens or inoculated with Toxocara canis embryonated eggs. The IgG specific antibodies were isolated by means of protein A-Sepharose CL-4B beads columns. IgG anti-A. simplex and -A. suum were coupled to CNBr-activated Sepharose 4B. For the purification of the larval A. simplex antigens, these were loaded into the anti-A. simplex column and bound antigens eluted. For the elimination of the epitopes responsible for the cross-reactions, the A. simplex specific proteins were loaded into the anti-A. suum column. To prove the specificity of the isolated proteins, immunochemical analyses by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis were carried out. Further, we studied the different responses by ELISA to the different antigenic preparations of A. simplex used, observing their capability of discriminating among the different antisera raised in rabbits (anti-A. simplex, anti-A. suum, anti-T. canis). The discriminatory capability with the anti-T. canis antisera was good using the larval A. simplex crude extract (CE) antigen. When larval A. simplex CE antigen was loaded into a CNBr-activated Sepharose 4B coupled to IgG from rabbits immunized with A. simplex CE antigen, its capability for discriminate between A. simplex and A. suum was improved, increasing in the case of T. canis. The best results were obtained using larval A. simplex CE antigen loaded into a CNBr-activated Sepharose 4B coupled to IgG from rabbits immunized with adult A. suum CE antigen. When we compared the different serum dilution and antigenic concentration, we selected the working serum dilution of (1/4)00 and 1 microg/ml of antigenic concentration.  (+info)

A case of acute gastric anisakiasis provoking severe clinical problems by multiple infection. (8/52)

Acute gastric anisakiasis with multiple anisakid larvae infection is reported. A 68-year-old woman residing in Busan, Korea, had epigastric pain with severe vomiting about 5 hours after eating raw anchovies. Four nematode larvae penetrating the gastric mucosae in the great curvature of the middle body and fundus were found and removed during gastro-endoscopic examination. Another one thread-like moving larva was found in the great curvature of upper body on the following day. On the basis of their morphology, the worms were identified as the 3rd stage larvae of Anisakis simplex. This case is acute gastric anisakiasis provoking severe clinical problems by the multiple infection and the greatest number of anisakid larvae found in a patient in Korea.  (+info)

"We present a case of stinging in the oral cavity caused by ingestion of the sperm bags of a squid. The patient experienced severe pain in her oral cavity immediately after eating raw squid. When she was examined at our hospital, we found that several small whitish spindle-shaped stings were stuck to the mucous membrane of the hard palate. A biopsy was performed, and the whitish stings were removed as well. We also performed a histological examination of the remaining part of the raw squid brought by the patient. The biopsy showed that the sperm bags of the squid had thrust into the squamous epithelium of the patient. The remaining part of the raw squid consisted of the testis and the sperm bags. After removal of all stings, the pain reduced, and the wound healed in due course. Larva migrans and anisakiasis are infections known to be caused by consumption of raw ...
Most cases of the parasite have previously occurred in Japan, but the disease has been increasingly recognized as a problem in the West, the authors wrote..

Dr. Daniel Eiras, assistant professor of infectious diseases at NYU Langone Medical Center, told CBS News that its pretty rare to see cases in the U.S. Hes only seen one case about two years ago, in a 45-year-old man.. "He was having reflux and severe abdominal pain. They thought he had a mass in his belly, cancer in his small intestine, so they took out the mass and looked at it under the microscope and it was one of these worms," said Eiras.. Cases of anisakiasis are probably widely underreported, though, he said, because primary care doctors and ...

Abstract: Background Anisakiasis is a re-emerging global disease caused by consumption of raw or lightly cooked fish contaminated with L3 Anisakis larvae. This zoonotic disease is characterized by severe gastrointestinal and/or allergic symptoms which may misdiagnosed as appendicitis, gastric ulcer or other food allergies. The Anisakis allergen Ani s 5 is a protein belonging to the SXP/RAL-2 family; it is detected exclusively in nematodes. Previous studies showed that SXP/RAL-2 proteins are active antigens; however, their structure and function remain unknown. The aim of this study was to elucidate the three-dimensional structure of Ani s 5 and its main IgE and IgG4 binding regions. Methodology/Principal Findings The tertiary structure of recombinant Ani s 5 in solution was solved by nuclear magnetic resonance. Mg2+, but not Ca2+, binding was determined by band shift using SDS-PAGE. IgE and IgG4 epitopes were elucidated by microarray immunoassay and SPOTs membranes using sera from nine Anisakis ...

Nematodes of the genera Anisakis and Pseudoterranova (family Anisakidae) are zoonotic parasites for which marine mammals (e.g. whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals, sea lions, walruses) act as final hosts, and crustaceans, cephalopods and fish as intermediate and/or paratenic hosts. In humans, the ingestion of Anisakidae larvae can result in infection with live larvae, an allergic reaction to Anisakidae allergens (even when dead larvae are ingested), or both. Worldwide, more than 2,000 infections are diagnosed in humans every year, yet most of the infections and allergic reactions are undiagnosed. A very high prevalence of anisakid larvae has been found in many commercially important species of fish, cephalopods and crustaceans. Preventive measures for anisakiosis focus on post-harvest handling.. Keywords ...

Summary and Conclusions The results obtained in studies on the vital staining of Anopheles larvae, conducted between December 1, 1937, and April 18, 1938, have been highly satisfactory. During these studies we have been able to stain larvae so that the staining could be easily recognized in the adults that emerge from the larvae. Staining may be recognized in the living mosquito by placing the specimen in a vial or capsule and examining under the dissecting microscope. It then is apparent in the tissues underlying the ventral sclerite of the neck. Or the staining may be recognized by dissecting the specimen and examining it under the dissecting microscope. It is then apparent in the walls of the abdomen and in the tissues of the thorax.. Fourth stage larvae were used in thirty-two lots, and third stage larvae in six lots. It is possible to stain third stage larvae sufficiently to be able to recognize the staining in the adults that emerge.. The stains giving the best results in these experiments ...

Portuguese doctors have reported one of many cases of anisakiasis, a parasitic infection now associated with patients who eat raw or undercooked sushi.
Anisakidosis, human infection with nematodes of the family Anisakidae, is caused most commonly by Anisakis simplex. Acquired by the consumption of raw or undercooked marine fish or squid, anisakidosis occurs where such dietary customs are practiced, including Japan, the coastal regions of Europe and the United States. Rupture of the spleen is a relatively common complication of trauma and many systemic disorders affecting the reticuloendothelial system, including infections and neoplasias. A rare subtype of rupture occurring spontaneously and arising from a normal spleen has been recognized as a distinct clinicopathologic entity. Herein we discuss the case of a woman who presented to our institution with appendicitis secondary to Anisakis and spontaneous spleen rupture. We report the case of a 53-year-old Caucasian woman who presented with hemorrhagic shock and abdominal pain and was subsequently found to have spontaneous spleen rupture and appendicitis secondary to Anisakis simplex. She underwent open

Alpinia oxyphylla is a common remedy in traditional Chinese medicine.Yakuchinone A is a major constituent of A. oxyphylla andexhibits anti-inflammatory, antitumor, antibacterial, and gastric protectiveactivities. Antioxidant and antitumor characteristics of yakuchinone A in skin cancer cells aswell as novel mechanisms for the inhibition of adipocyte differentiation,cestocidal activities against Hymenolepis nana adults, and nematocidalactivities against Anisakis simplex larvae are investigated. Yakuchinone A presents the ability of the removal of DPPH·andABTS+ free radicals and inhibition of lipid peroxidation.Yakuchinone A suppresses intracellular lipid accumulation during adipocytedifferentiation in 3 T3-L1 cells and the expressions of leptin andperoxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ(PPAR γ). Yakuchinone A induces apoptosis and inhibits cellproliferation in skin cancer cells. The inhibition of cell growth by yakuchinone Ais more significant for non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) cells than for
While I would certainly not support the proposition that spontaneous generation occurred at any time after the earliest living cells appeared, I can see Rav Bleichs ruling on the anisakis worm. The fact that the Shulchan Aruch appears to permit all worms found in the flesh of fish, doesnt mean that the halachic source, the gemara in Hulin, takes that position. The gemara there distinguishes between 2 worms, the kukiani - which is forbidden (according to the Hilchasa) and the durni which is permitted. Tosafot demonstrate that the kukiani case also refers to a fish worm. What proof is there that the durni is the anisakis? Rashi, in fact, believes that the durni is found on the skin of the fish (and in the flesh). Its mode of entry into the flesh is therefore much different than the anisakis which is swallowed by the fish together with the krill and other small crustaceans. Since we know that the anisakis worm is foreign to the fish (meialma asa) and is apparently not microscopic when swallowed ...

Anisakis spp. merupakan endoparasit yang bersifat zoonosis (penyakit pada ikan yang dapat ditularkan ke manusia). Infeksi pada manusia bersifat insidental, berdampak terhadap kesehatan manusia dan menyebabkan beberapa gejala seperti nyeri perut, mual, muntah dan reaksi alergi. Peningkatan produksi perikanan tangkap terutama ikan tuna dan cakalang memerlukan informasi mengenai food safety (keamanan pangan) ikan-ikan tersebut, metode pengolahan, dan orientasi ekspor. Hal inilah menjadi dasar dilakukan penelitian kajian prevalensi parasit Anisakis pada ikan tuna dan cakalang di Selat Makassar guna menunjang keberhasilan dunia perikanan baik dalam bidang penangkapan maupun budidaya tahun 2020 mendatang. Tujuan penelitian ini adalah menganalisis mikrohabitat parasit Anisakis dalam tubuh ikan (usus, hati, otot, dan jantung) pada ikan tuna dan cakalang di Selat Makassar. Pengambilan sampel dilakukan di Tempat Pelelangan Ikan (TPI) Kasiwa Mamuju dan dianalisis di Laboratorium Parasit SKIPM ...
Due to the amount of air a whole house fan moves when properly sized to the home, dust does not have any time to settle in the home! Most customer, even in the dustiest of area, do not notice a big increase in the amount of dust in the home.. As well, because the fan moves so much air, it is taking any allergens that may be inside or outside the home and exhausting it so fast they have no chance to circulate inside of the home. The fan sucks any allergens into the attic and then exhausts it through the attic vents. In fact, the allergens inside the home can be much worse than the allergens outside of the home. We even have some customers who have very bad allergies state that their allergies almost went away after installing the QuietCool!. For customers that are still concerned with bringing in dust or allergens, we have a new product to help. We have partnered with PollenTec, a manufacturer of window screens that block 99.9% of dust and allergens from entering the home. The screens are very ...

All fish contain a Diphyllobothrium worm, it is a type of worm that can cause a disease known as Diphyllobothriasis, when consuming raw or undercooked fish. Symptoms, if they occur, include abdominal discomfort or pain, diarrhea, weakness and weight loss. Yes, it can be fatal if the worms get into the brain. Once a person becomes infected, the tapeworm will grow, and it can survive for several years until it is detected within a few weeks or months. Many studies show that eating raw or boiled fish can lead to a variety of parasitic infections, and some even show that eating boiled fish can trigger a reaction within the body. Tapeworm infections occur after swallowing diphyllobothrium larvae, in freshwater fish such as salmon, although pickled and smoked fish can also transmit the worm. ...
Yes, researchers who published the original Jan 9, 2004 Science paper have done later nutritional studies, e.g. J. A. Foran et al. "Quantitiative Analysis of the Benefits and Risks of Consuming Farmed and Wild Salmon". However, they do not provide evidence that wild salmon is better for you than farmed salmon. In particular, they do not study the change in expected lifetime (or other measure of healthfullness) from switching salmon consumption from farmed to wild. Yes, wild salmon provides more omega-3s "per unit risk" (Figure 1). However, consumers dont eat food "per unit risk." The amount of salmon a consumer eats is unlikely to change in switching from farmed to wild. Also, the "unit risk" discussed by the authors seems quite small. They define unit cancerous risk as a 0.001% increase in the risk of death from cancer. If a consumer eats enough farmed salmon (purchased from, say, Eastern US retail locations) to achieve the recommended omega-3 intake (1 g/day), he/she would face merely a ...
I think the size of the worms is more indicative of the giant intestinal round worm (Ascaris). From the images I have seen of Anisakis, they are on the order of centimeters; whereas, these worms were on the order of tens of centimeters. The vague abdominal pain, anemia, and upper endoscopy video of large worms with very serpiginous moment, would suggest a diagnosis of ascariasis. Treatment with a bendazole should do the trick otherwise if they are causing obstruction remove them while you are in there. ...

The scientific approach to food and nutrition arose with attention to agricultural chemistry in the works of J. G. Wallerius, Humphry Davy, and others. For example, Davy published Elements of Agricultural Chemistry, in a Course of Lectures for the Board of Agriculture (1813) in the United Kingdom which would serve as a foundation for the profession worldwide, going into a fifth edition. Earlier work included that by Carl Wilhelm Scheele who isolated malic acid from apples in 1785. In 1874 the Society of Public Analysts was formed, with the aim of applying analytical methods to the benefit of the public.[3] Its early experiments were based on bread, milk and wine. It was also out of concern for the quality of the food supply, mainly food adulteration and contamination issues that would first stem from intentional contamination to later with chemical food additives by the 1950s. The development of colleges and universities worldwide, most notably in the United States, would expand food chemistry ...
The value of allergen labeling other than for intentional ingredients is controversial. This concerns labeling for ingredients present unintentionally as a consequence of cross-contact or cross-contamination at any point along the food chain (during raw material transportation, storage or handling, due to shared equipment for processing and packaging, etc.).[10][11] Experts in this field propose that if allergen labeling is to be useful to consumers, and healthcare professionals who advise and treat those consumers, ideally there should be agreement on which foods require labeling, threshold quantities below which labeling may be of no purpose, and validation of allergen detection methods to test and potentially recall foods that were deliberately or inadvertently contaminated.[106][107] Labeling regulations have been modified to provide for mandatory labeling of ingredients plus voluntary labeling, termed precautionary allergen labeling (PAL), also known as "may contain" statements, for ...

In most cases the use of Medical Nutrition is recommended within international and professional guidelines.[10] It can be an integral part of managing acute and short-term diseases. It can also play a major role in supporting patients for extended periods of time and even for a lifetime in some special cases.[10] Medical Nutrition is not meant to replace the treatment of disease but rather complement the normal use of drug therapies prescribed by physicians and other licensed healthcare providers.[10]. Unlike Medical Foods which are defined by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Food and Drug Administration, {within their 'Medical Foods Guidance Documents & Regulatory Information' guide in section 5(b) of the Orphan Drug Act (21 U.S.C. 30ee (b) (3))}; as "a food which is formulated to be consumed or administered enterally under the supervision of a physician and which is intended for the specific dietary management of a disease or condition for which distinctive nutritional ...
