A case of gastric pseudoterranoviasis in a 43-year-old man in Korea. (1/53)

A case of Pseudoterranova decipiens infection was found in a 43-year-old man by gastroendoscopic examination on August 20, 1996. On August 6, 1996, he visited a local clinic, complaining of epigastric pain two days after eating raw marine fishes. Although the symptoms were relieved soon, endoscopic examination was done for differential diagnosis. A white, live nematode larva was removed from the fundus of the stomach. The larva was 38.3 x 1.0 mm in size and had a cecum reaching to the mid-level of the ventriculus. A lot of transverse striations were regularly arranged on the cuticle of its body surface, but the boring tooth and mucron were not observed at both ends of the worm. The worm was identified as the 4th stage larva of P. decipiens.  (+info)

Plasma and bile antibodies of the teleost Trematomus bernacchii specific for the nematode Pseudoterranova decipiens. (2/53)

We investigated the occurrence of antibodies against protein antigens of the nematode parasite Pseudoterranova decipiens in the plasma and bile of the Antarctic teleost Trematomus bernacchii. Three different P. decipiens protein solutions were prepared: excreted/secreted proteins from live larvae (ESP); surface-associated proteins obtained by mild extraction of larval bodies (SAP); and cuticular soluble proteins recovered by extraction in strong reducing conditions (CSP). Using different immunoassays, these 3 preparations were tested for their ability to bind fish antibody. As determined by ELISA, the specific antibody binding activity was higher in SAP than in CSP. As determined by dot-blot immunoassay, the specific antigen binding activity versus SAP was higher in bile than in plasma antibodies. A different number of antigenic components of SAP and ESP were identified by immunoblotting performed with plasma or bile antibodies. These results led to the conclusion that T. bernacchii parasitism by nematodes involves plasma and bile anti-parasite antibodies. Furthermore bile antibodies were found to be more reactive and more heterogeneous than plasma.  (+info)

A human case of gastric infection by Pseudoterranova decipiens larva. (3/53)

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)

Larvae of Contracaecum sp. among inshore fish species of southwestern Australia. (5/53)

Larval nematode infections were investigated in 236 fish from 17 estuarine and near-shore species in southwestern Australia. Larvae of the genus Contracaecum were found in 4 species of fish (Acanthopagrus butcheri, Sillaginodes punctata, Mugil cephalus and Aldrichetta forsteri). The prevalence and intensity of infection was highest in the 2 species of mullet: 81% infected and 9.8 +/- 1.5 larvae fish(-1) for M. cephalus; 100% and 12.7 +/- 3.7 larvae fish(-1) for A. forsteri. There was no evidence of post-mortem migration of worms from the visceral organs to the musculature of the fish.  (+info)

Raccoon roundworm eggs near homes and risk for larva migrans disease, California communities. (6/53)

The raccoon roundworm, Baylisascaris procyonis, is increasingly recognized as a cause of serious or fatal larva migrans disease in humans and animals. We assessed the potential for infection in three northern California communities by determining the density and distribution of raccoon latrines, where transmission primarily occurs, and the prevalence of eggs at private residences. We collected fecal samples from 215 latrines and found that 44%-53% of the latrines contained B. procyonis eggs and that 16%-32% contained infective eggs. Among the properties surveyed, 28%-49% harbored at least one latrine that was positive for B. procyonis eggs. The latrine densities in these communities were higher than any previously reported. The presence of B. procyonis eggs in raccoon latrines was common, widespread, and closely associated with human habitation. Where raccoon densities are high, education of the public and removal of raccoons may be necessary.  (+info)

Baylisascaris procyonis in the metropolitan Atlanta area. (7/53)

Baylisascaris procyonis, the raccoon roundworm responsible for fatal larva migrans in humans, has long been thought to be absent from many regions in the southeastern United States. During spring 2002, 11 (22%) of 50 raccoons trapped in DeKalb County, Georgia, had B. procyonis infection. The increasing number of cases highlight this emerging zoonotic infection.  (+info)

A new nematode species Goezia leporini n. sp. (Anisakidae) from cultured freshwater fish Leporinus macrocephalus (Anostomidae) in Brazil. (8/53)

This paper describes nematode infection in the cultured freshwater fish Leporinus macrocephalus (Osteichthyses: Anostomidae) collected at Batatais, Sao Paulo State, Brazil. Of a total of 32 examined fish, 21 (65%) were infected with Goezia leporini n. sp. (Nematoda: Anisakidae) with mean infection intensity of 4.1 parasites. The nematodes presented total length greater than G intermedia, G. holmesi, G. pelagia, G. minuta, G. kliksi, G. sinamora, G. nonipapillata, G. alii, G. moraveci, G. brasiliensis, and G. brevicaeca. The main difference was a great number of preanal papillae in males when compared to G. brasiliensis and G. brevicaeca. The present description also differs from that of G. brasiliensis with respect to spicule length and distance of vulva from the anterior extremity.  (+info)

A major metabolite of [3H]ecdysone injected into adults of the nematode Parascaris equorum maintained in vitro for 48 h was secreted into the culture medium. The compound could be hydrolysed with a crude hydrolase preparation from Helix pomatia, yielding ecdysone. Sufficient quantity of this material for identification was produced by administration of ecdysone to the parasites. The resulting compound was purified by h.p.l.c. and identified as ecdysone 25-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside by n.m.r. spectroscopy and by fast atom bombardment mass spectrometry of the conjugate and of the sugar released by enzymic hydrolysis. The significance of formation of the glucoside is uncertain. ...
Baylisascaris procyonis, predominantly found in raccoons, is a ubiquitous roundworm found throughout North America. Although raccoons are typically asymptomatic when infected with the parasite, the larval form of Baylisascaris procyonis can result in fatal human disease or severe neurologic outcomes if not treated rapidly. In the United States, Baylisascaris procyonis is more commonly enzootic in raccoons in the midwestern and northeastern regions and along the West Coast (1). However, since 2002, infections have been documented in other states (Florida and Georgia) and regions (2). Baylisascariasis is not a nationally notifiable disease in the United States, and little is known about how commonly it occurs or the range of clinical disease in humans. Case reports of seven human baylisascariasis cases in the United States diagnosed by Baylisascaris procyonis immunoblot testing at CDC are described, including review of clinical history and laboratory data. Although all seven patients survived, ...
Baylisascaris shroederi, common name giant panda roundworm, is a roundworm (nematode), found ubiquitously in giant pandas of central China, the definitive hosts. Baylisascaris larvae in paratenic hosts can migrate, causing visceral larva migrans (VLM). Baylisascariasis is characterized by the zoonotic infection of Baylisascaris roundworm humans, no cases have ever been reported globally. It is extremely dangerous to the host due to the ability of the parasites larvae to migrate into brain tissue and cause damage. Concern for human infection is minimalized as there are very few giant pandas living today and most people do not encounter giant pandas in their everyday activities. There is growing recognition that the infection of Baylisascaris shroederi is one of the major causes of death in the species This is confirmed by a report stating that during the period of 2001 to 2005; about 50% of deaths in wild giant pandas were caused by the parasite infection. In central China, B. shroederi ...
Since 2002, macrocyclic lactone resistance has been reported in populations of Parascaris equorum from several countries. It is apparent that macrocyclic lactone resistance developed in response to exclusive and/or excessively frequent use of ivermectin or moxidectin in foals during the first year of life. The development of anthelmintic resistance was virtually inevitable, given certain biological features of Parascaris and unique pharmacologic characteristics of the macrocyclic lactones. Practitioners can utilize the Fecal Egg Count Reduction Test to detect anthelmintic resistance in Parascaris, and the same technique can be applied regularly to confirm the continued efficacy of those drugs currently in use. In the face of macrocyclic lactone resistance, piperazine or anthelmintics of the benzimidazole or pyrimidine classes can be used to control ascarid infections, but Parascaris populations that are concurrently resistant to macrocyclic lactones and pyrimidine drugs have been reported recently from
The extraordinary heteroxenosity (ability to use many hosts in its life cycle) of Baylisascaris procyonis is of particular concern not only to wildlife biologists but also to public health professionals and medical practitioners. To understand why there is an increasing human risk for infection with B. procyonis, a discussion of the biology and behavior of raccoons is prerequisite to subsequent discussions of epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment. B. procyonis is the large ascarid parasite of raccoons. The biology, morphology, and ecology of B. procyonis are similar to those of other ascarid parasites of carnivores, such as the common canine roundworm, Toxocara canis. Humans become infected with B. procyonis just as these other hosts do and become accidental hosts following inadvertent ingestion of eggs containing infective larvae. Without question, the biggest contributing factor to the poor response to B. procyonis neural larva migrans (NLM) therapy is treatment delay

B. procyonis roundworms can cause potentially fatal neural larva migrans in many species, including humans. However, the clinical spectrum of baylisascariasis is not completely understood, according to researchers in a new study published in the CDC journal, Emerging Infectious Diseases.. Wildlife rehabilitators may represent a population at risk for subclinical baylisascariasis due to frequent contact with raccoons and their feces, which may contain infectious larvated B. procyonis eggs.. During 2012-2015, serum samples were collected and analyzed for B. procyonis IgG using a recombinant B. procyonis repeat antigen 1 protein Western blot. A questionnaire was also administered to determine current involvement in rehabilitation activities.. Nine out of 10 of the 347 participants reported current involvement in rehabilitation activities.. Twenty-four, or 7 percent of participants tested positive for B. procyonis antibodies.. Based on their findings, researchers suggest that exposure to B. ...

Macrocyclic lactones (MLs) represent the major drug class for control of parasitic infections in humans and animals. However, recently reports of treatment failures became more frequent. In addition to human and ruminant parasitic nematodes this also is the case for the horse-nematode Parascaris equorum. Nevertheless, to date the molecular basis of ML resistance is still not understood. Unspecific resistance mechanisms involving transporters such as P-glycoproteins (Pgps) are expected to contribute to ML resistance in nematodes. Here, complete sequences of two P. equorum Pgps were cloned and identified as orthologs of Caenorhabditis elegans Ppg-11 and an unnamed Caenorhabditis briggsae Pgp designated as Pgp-16 using phylogenetic analysis. Quantitative real-time PCR was used to compare expression between tissues. Significantly higher PeqPgp-11 expression was found in the gut for both genders, whereas for PeqPgp-16 the body wall was identified as predominant expression site. Furthermore, Pgps were

Also known as the raccoon roundworm, Baylisascaris is a parasite that can be deadly if ingested. If it makes its way to your brain it can cause blindness, paralysis and even death.
Most people remember the joys of growing up and either being tormented by disgusting boys throwing dead worms at you, or being the disgusting boy enjoying tormenting the object of their grade school affection. Consequently, the thought of worms tend to hold a fair amount of emotion for many of us. We cannot believe that our much loved indoor cat could possibly acquire worms. BUT our indoor cats frequently have worms and other parasites. How could this occur?. 99% of all kittens become infected with roundworms from the mother cat, through nursing and through contact with her stool. Some of these roundworms will encyst and become dormant in the muscles and will not be destroyed by dewormers. When the cats immune system becomes stressed from illness, pregnancy or even aging, some of these juvenile roundworms will activate and migrate to the intestinal tract and start reproducing. Also, contact with potting soil can infect cats with roundworms. In a recent study 15% of potting soils were found to ...

The intestinal nematode Baylisascaris schroederi is an important cause of death for wild and captive giant pandas. Inorganic pyrophosphatases (PPases) are critical for development and molting in nematode parasites and represent potential targets for vaccination. Here, a new PPase homologue, Bsc-PYP-1, from B. schroederi was identified and characterized, and its potential as a vaccine candidate was evaluated in a mouse challenge model. Sequence alignment of PPases from nematode parasites and other organisms show that Bsc-PYP-1 is a nematode-specific member of the family I soluble PPases. Immunohistochemistry revealed strong localization of native Bsc-PYP-1 to the body wall, gut epithelium, ovary and uterus of adult female worms. Additionally, Bsc-PYP-1 homologues were found in roundworms infecting humans (Ascaris lumbricoides), swine (Ascaris suum) and dogs (Toxocara canis). In two vaccine trials, recombinant Bsc-PYP-1 (rBsc-PYP-1) formulated with Freund complete adjuvant induced significantly high

A raccoon latrine in King County is very likely to contain roundworm eggs that can be hazardous to human health. The adult stage of the raccoon roundworm (Baylisascaris procyonis) lives in the raccoons intestine and produces microscopic eggs that are shed in the raccoons feces. One raccoon roundworm can produce more than 100,000 eggs a day. A raccoon can pass millions of eggs in its feces everyday, depending on how many worms are in its intestines. Once deposited in the environment, the eggs develop into the infectious form in 2-4 weeks, and can survive in the soil for several years.. If these infectious eggs are inadvertently swallowed by humans, other mammals, or birds, larvae (immature stage of worms) hatch out of the eggs and move into the organs of the body. The larvae travel throughout the body and may cause serious eye disease, spinal cord or brain damage, or death. Discouraging raccoons from living around people and cleaning up raccoon latrines reduces the chance that people will get ...
Over the period of January 2012 to January 2014, 17 raccoons were submitted to the Animal Health Centre in Abbotsford, [British Columbia] for necropsy. 9 were juvenile, 5 were adult, and 3 were of undocumented age. The animals were free ranging and had been found either dead, injured, or weak and disoriented, by members of the public or employees of provincial agencies. Of the 17 raccoons, 12 carried patent roundworm infections (7/9 juvenile, 3/5 adults, and 2/3 of undocumented age).. The raccoon roundworm, Baylisascaris procyonis, is widespread throughout North America and commonly affects free ranging raccoons. In our 2 year review, 12/17 raccoons (71 per cent) were carrying the parasite. This agrees with other published infection rates, including those previously found in BC. This parasite has a fecal-oral life cycle. The raccoon ingests infective eggs from the environment which hatch to larvae. The larvae migrate into the intestinal wall and then emerge as adults into the intestine. Adults ...
A wild giant panda was spotted by infrared cameras in the Jiudingshan Nature Reserve in Mianzhu city, southwest Chinas Sichuan Province, the nature reserve said Wednesday.. It was the first time a camera has captured a wild panda in Mianzhu, said Liao Liang, who works at one of the nature reserves management station.. Two videos with the animal were shot on April 1 and three pictures were taken the second day. The videos showed an adult wild panda with a muddy butt, weighing between 80 to 150 kg, strolling through a bamboo forest, alternating between looking around and eating.. These images show that vegetation and the ecological environment in the area are improving, with good living conditions for pandas, Liao said.. To better acquire wildlife data, five infrared cameras were placed in the reserve in April 2018, with 35 others added last month.. The cameras also spotted other rare animal species under first- and second-class state protection in the area, including the golden snub-nosed ...

A roundworm infection doesnt usually cause any noticeable symptoms. People usually see their GP because theyve seen a worm in their stools (faeces).. Less commonly, symptoms can include a high temperature and dry cough 4-16 days after swallowing the eggs.. If a large number of eggs have been ingested, or if the worms move from the small intestine to other parts of the body, they can cause serious complications, such as a bowel obstruction. However, in England, these types of complications are rare.. Read more about the symptoms of a roundworm infection.. ...

Roundworms tend to affect puppies, especially puppies living in close quarters. Puppies that come from puppy mills and pet shops tend to be inundated with this parasite. Roundworms tend to be very common in puppies and kittens due to the way it is spread. The roundworm larva can migrate between the mother and the developing fetus. It can also be spread during nursing time. Once the larva migrates, they grow up to 5 inches in the dogs or cats intestine. There they start to absorb nutrients from the intestinal tract, then it will start laying eggs. Roundworms can lay up to 1 million eggs over the span of a couple of weeks. Due to this number, many kittens and puppies with advanced stages of infestation tend to have large bellies and mid sections. Severe infestations can cause a blockage, killing the host. Not only are puppies and kittens in danger of roundworm infestation, but an adult can be exposed as well ...

Most nematode species are dioecious, with separate male and female individuals, though some, such as Caenorhabditis elegans, are androdioecious, consisting of hermaphrodites and rare males. Both sexes possess one or two tubular gonads. In males, the sperm are produced at the end of the gonad and migrate along its length as they mature. The testis opens into a relatively wide seminal vesicle and then during intercourse into a glandular and muscular ejaculatory duct associated with the vas deferens and cloaca. In females, the ovaries each open into an oviduct (in hermaphrodites, the eggs enter a spermatheca first) and then a glandular uterus. The uteri both open into a common vulva/vagina, usually located in the middle of the morphologically ventral surface.[39] Reproduction is usually sexual, though hermaphrodites are capable of self-fertilization. Males are usually smaller than females or hermaphrodites (often much smaller) and often have a characteristically bent or fan-shaped tail. During ...
