The cat lung strip as an in vitro preparation of peripheral airways: a comparison of beta-adrenoceptor agonists, autacoids and anaphylactic challenge on the lung strip and trachea. (1/247)

1 A new in vitro preparation, the isolated lung strip of the cat, is described for investigating the direct effect of drugs on the smooth muscle of the peripheral airways of the lung. The preparation comprises a thin strip of lung parenchyma which can be mounted in a conventional organ bath for isometric tension recording. Its pharmacological responses have been characterized and compared with the isolated tracheal preparation of the cat. 2 The lung strip exhibited an intrinsic tone which was relaxed by catecholamines, aminophylline and flufenamate. It was contracted strongly by histamine, prostaglandin F2alpha, acetylcholine, compound 48/80, potassium depolarizing solution and alternating current field stimulation. In contrast, the cat trachea was unresponsive to histamine and prostaglandin F2alpha and did not exhibit an intrinsic tone. 3 (-)-Isoprenaline and (-)-adrenaline were much more potent in relaxing the lung strip than the trachea. The potency order of relaxation responses to isoprenaline, adrenaline and (+/-)-noradrenaline in the lung strip was isoprenaline greater than adrenaline greater than noradrenaline but in the trachea was isoprenaline greater than noradrenaline greater than or equal to adrenaline. 4 beta2-Adrenoceptor selective agonists salbutamol and terbutaline were more potent in the lung strip than the trachea, suggesting beta2-adrenoceptors predominated in the lung strip. Propranolol was equipotent in inhibiting isoprenaline relexations of the lung strip and trachea, whereas practolol was much less effective in inhibiting lung strip than trachea, further supporting a predominance of beta2-adrenoceptors in lung strip and beta1-adrenoceptors in trachea. 5 Strong Schultz-Dale type contractions were elicited in both lung strips and trachea by Ascaris lumbricoides antigen in actively sensitized cats. The initial phase of the contractile response of the lung strip following challenge was shown to be due to histamine release and was absent in the trachea. The delayed phase of the contraction which took several minutes to develop in both the mepyramine-treated lung strip and trachea was not due to prostaglandins E1, F2alpha or bradykinin, the probable mediator being slow reacting substance of anaphylaxis (SRS-A). 6 It is concluded that the isolated lung strip of the cat is useful as an in vitro model for investigating the effect of drugs on the smooth muscle of the peripheral airways of the lungs.  (+info)

Transient expression of DNA and RNA in parasitic helminths by using particle bombardment. (2/247)

Parasitic helminths (worms belonging to several metazoan phyla) cause considerable morbidity and mortality in humans. They are an important veterinary problem, and they result in significant economic losses in animal grazing and agriculture. Experimental studies on parasitic helminths have been limited by a lack of parasite cell lines and methods for molecular genetic analyses. We evaluated particle bombardment (biolistics) as a strategy to introduce and express nucleic acids in these multicellular parasites. By using embryos of the parasitic nematode Ascaris as a model, we developed methods to introduce and express both DNA and RNA during several stages of Ascaris embryogenesis. Biolistic transfection will facilitate experimental strategies in Ascaris embryos complementing other biochemical tools available (e.g., in vitro whole-cell embryo extracts for transcription, RNA processing, and translation). Transfection experiments with adult schistosomes further suggest that the biolistic strategy should be applicable to a variety of other parasitic helminths. The development of these methods provides molecular genetic tools to study gene expression and the biology of a variety of types and developmental stages of important helminth parasites.  (+info)

NMR solution structure of Apis mellifera chymotrypsin/cathepsin G inhibitor-1 (AMCI-1): structural similarity with Ascaris protease inhibitors. (3/247)

The three-dimensional structure of the 56 residue polypeptide Apis mellifera chymotrypsin/cathepsin G inhibitor 1 (AMCI-1) isolated from honey bee hemolymph was calculated based on 730 experimental NMR restraints. It consists of two approximately perpendicular beta-sheets, several turns, and a long exposed loop that includes the protease binding site. The lack of extensive secondary structure features or hydrophobic core is compensated by the presence of five disulfide bridges that stabilize both the protein scaffold and the binding loop segment. A detailed analysis of the protease binding loop conformation reveals that it is similar to those found in other canonical serine protease inhibitors. The AMCI-1 structure exhibits a common fold with a novel family of inhibitors from the intestinal parasitic worm Ascaris suum. The pH-induced conformational changes in the binding loop region observed in the Ascaris inhibitor ATI are absent in AMCI-1. Similar binding site sequences and structures strongly suggest that the lack of the conformational change can be attributed to a Glu-->Gln substitution at the P1' position in AMCI-1, compared to ATI. Analysis of amide proton temperature coefficients shows very good correlation with the presence of hydrogen bond donors in the calculated AMCI-1 structure.  (+info)

Some risk factors of Ascaris and Trichuris infection in Malaysian aborigine (Orang Asli) children. (4/247)

A study on risk factors of soil-transmitted helminths was conducted in a highly endemic area. In all 205 children (95 boys and 110 girls) participated in this study. The overall prevalences of Ascaris, Trichuris and hookworm infection were 62.5%, 91.7% and 28.8% respectively. Only 22.4% of the children had a single infection either by Ascaris or Trichuris; 69.3% had mixed infection and the most prevalent of mixed infection was a combination of Ascaris and Trichuris. Logistic regression analysis confirmed that low level mother's education was a risk factor for moderate and severe infection of Ascaris and age < or = 6-year-old was a protective factor. In Trichuris infection logistic regression analysis confirmed that usage of well-water and age < or = 6-year-old were the risk factors. Logistic regression analysis on worm scores confirmed that usage of well-water and non-usage of toilets were the risk factors from getting severe worm scores and age < or = 6-year-old was a protective factor. Our finding suggest that socio-behavioural (related to mother's education), demographic (children age) and environmental-factors (usage of well-water and non-usage of toilets) are the elements to be considered in the design of long term soil-transmitted helminths (STH) control in an endemic areas.  (+info)

Jejunal mucosa in marasmic children. Clinical, pathological, and fine structural evaluation of the effect of protein-energy malnutrition and environmental contamination. (5/247)

Seven children suffering from marasmus were investigated clinically, biochemically and morphologically. The fine structure of the jejunal mucosa obtained by peroral biopsy was evaluated. The mucosal changes noted agree with the only other ultrastructural study reported by Brunser et al. (8) and add information on three additional features: an increase in theliolymphocytes, excessive epithelial cell extrusion and abnormalities in the appearances of the mucosal plasma cells, suggesting possible local deficiency in immune function.  (+info)

The development of Ascaris suum in calves. (6/247)

To determine the development of Ascaris suum after a primary and a secondary infection, 18 calves were inoculated with 2,000,000 infective eggs and examined from 18 hours to 13 days postinfection. At 18 hours larvae were recovered from the wall of the abomasum, duodenum and jejunum. They were found in small intestine lymph nodes on the third day, in the liver at five days and were most abundant in the lungs on days 7 and 9. The pattern of recovery of larvae from the lung between days 5 and 13 postinfection was similar after a primary or a secondary infection. Slower growth of larvae following a secondary infection was the only evidence of resistance to A. suum. There were no pathological changes observed in the alimentary canal. White foci were found on the surface of the liver as early as the third day. The rapid decline in the number of A. suum in the lungs after the ninth day was considered to be related to immobilization or death of larvae soon after the reaction to them commences.  (+info)

Wistar strain rats as the model for IgE antibody experiments. (7/247)

The amount of plasma IgE antibody formed and its change over time were investigated by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) in male and female Sprague-Dawley (SD), Donryu, and Wistar strain rats. IgE antibody formation was initiated by injecting a mixture of 2,4-dinitrophenylated ascaris extract (DNP-As) as antigen and killed Bordetella pertussis as adjuvant into the paws of the animals. The amount of IgE antibody formed was low on day 10 in both male and female SD (40-80 ng/ml) and Donryu (20-40 ng/ml) strain rats, and an increase in the amount was observed on day 20. The peak value of IgE antibody was observed day 10 in Wistar strain rats and was 130 and 200 ng/ml in the male and female rats, respectively. These results suggest that Wistar strain rats produce the most IgE antibody when DNP-As is used as antigen and they can serve as a model for allergic diseases.  (+info)

The Drosophila melanogaster seminal fluid protein Acp62F is a protease inhibitor that is toxic upon ectopic expression. (8/247)

Drosophila melanogaster seminal fluid proteins stimulate sperm storage and egg laying in the mated female but also cause a reduction in her life span. We report here that of eight Drosophila seminal fluid proteins (Acps) and one non-Acp tested, only Acp62F is toxic when ectopically expressed. Toxicity to preadult male or female Drosophila occurs upon one exposure, whereas multiple exposures are needed for toxicity to adult female flies. Of the Acp62F received by females during mating, approximately 10% enters the circulatory system while approximately 90% remains in the reproductive tract. We show that in the reproductive tract, Acp62F localizes to the lumen of the uterus and the female's sperm storage organs. Analysis of Acp62F's sequence, and biochemical assays, reveals that it encodes a trypsin inhibitor with sequence and structural similarities to extracellular serine protease inhibitors from the nematode Ascaris. In light of previous results demonstrating entry of Acp62F into the mated female's hemolymph, we propose that Acp62F is a candidate for a molecule to contribute to the Acp-dependent decrease in female life span. We propose that Acp62F's protease inhibitor activity exerts positive protective functions in the mated female's reproductive tract but that entry of a small amount of this protein into the female's hemolymph could contribute to the cost of mating.  (+info)

Summary Immersion of motile specimens of Ascaris lumbricoides in piperazine solutions gradually results in paralysis of the worms. When the worms are split the muscle of the body wall contracts in response to acetylcholine. This response is rapidly blocked by dilute solutions of piperazine. Electrical stimulation of the muscle of the body wall also causes contraction. This contraction is not blocked by perfusion of this preparation with piperazine. This evidence indicates that piperazine produces paralysis of Ascaris by blocking the neuromuscular junction. This observation can account for the therapeutic effectiveness of piperazine against Ascaris. Ascaris muscle responds to several pharmacologically active compounds in a manner resembling vertebrate skeletal muscle.
The area boasts a great diversity of habitats resulting from two main factors. Firstly, the geological underpinnings of the area are complex (see information on local geology on this website) but are dominated by ancient volcanic, folded and faulted rocks which bring a variety of soil parent materials to the surface, leading to variations in soil acidity, nutrient status and moisture retention capacity. The Church Stretton Fault adds to this complexity by bringing exposures of Wenlock limestone into the Stretton valley. Secondly, the environs of Church Stretton exhibit great variations in topography. The floor of the Stretton Gap lies at about 185 m (600 ft.) above sea level while the Long Mynd reaches 516 m (1700 ft.) less than 4 km (2½ miles) away as the crow flies. On the opposite side of the valley, Caer Caradoc reaches 459 m (1500 ft.) only a kilometre (0.6 miles) from the floodplain. The climate on these tops is much colder, cloudier and windier than on the valley floor and far less ...

The polyprotein allergens/antigens of nematodes (NPAs) are the only lipid binding proteins known to be produced as polyproteins. Cleavage of the large polyprotein precursors at regularly spaced proteinase cleavage sites produces 10 or 11 individual protein units of similar to 15 kDa. The sequences of these units are highly diverse within and between species, but there are five absolutely or strongly conserved amino acid positions (Trp 15, Gln20, Leu42, Cys64, and Cys120). We have tested the role of these signature amino acids by mutational or chemical alteration of the ABA-1 protein of Ascaris, and examined the resulting modified proteins for perturbations of their lipid binding activities and structural integrity. Substitution of Trp15 and Gln20 both affect the stability of the protein in terms of resistance to thermal or chemical denaturation, but the ligand binding function is unaffected. Mutation of Leu42, however, disrupts both the proteins structural stability and functional integrity, as ...
Summary The distribution and behavior of Ascaris within the gastrointestinal tract has been observed by fluoroscopic methods. The jejunum is by far the favored habitat of Ascaris. A slight preference for the middle third over the anterior and posterior thirds is evidenced by the worms. Resting positions and locomotion within the bowel are described. A characteristic position is assumed following administration of anthelmintics.

We used a cell-free in vitro motility system in which both protrusion and retraction can be reconstituted, to identify two proteins involved in cell body retraction. Pharmacological and depletion-add back assays showed that retraction was triggered by a putative protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A, a Ser/Thr phosphatase activated by tyrosine dephosphorylation). Immunofluorescence showed that PP2A was present in the cell body and was concentrated at ...
Ascaris lumbricoides (AL) is one of the most common helminthic infections of humans, affecting mainly children and malnourished individuals residing in developing countries. It is estimated the 25% of the worlds population is infected with this nematode. Infection occurs via ingestion of water and food contaminated by Ascaris eggs, causing asymptomatic infection to disease with abdominal pain, vomiting, constipation and faecal passage of worms. The present report concerns an unusual case in which AL travelled retrograde and lodged in the vocal cords causing upper airway obstruction leading to asystolic cardiac arrest.
In the present study, we demonstrated, for the first time, a functional purinergic neurotransmission between inhibitory motoneurons and human colonic smooth muscle through P2Y1 receptors. Several experimental procedures have been performed to characterize purinergic neurotransmission, including the use of nonselective P2 antagonists such as suramin and PPADS. In this study, we used MRS 2179 as a selective inhibitor of P2Y1 receptors (1, 10). We found that 1) both IJPf and the nonnitrergic relaxation induced by EFS were dose dependently inhibited by MRS 2179, 2) MRS 2179 inhibited the relaxation and hyperpolarization induced by ADPβS (a preferential P2Y agonist), 3) ADPβS reduced the IJP probably by a desensitization mechanism, and 4) P2Y1 receptors were localized in smooth muscle cells as well as in enteric neurons. These results show that ATP or a related purine is released by enteric inhibitory motoneurons, causing a fast hyperpolarization and smooth muscle relaxation. The high sensitivity ...

As bizarre as their migration might seem, there also are bizarre human stories surrounding these amazing worms. In 1922, Shimesu Koino ate 2000 eggs of Ascaris lumbricoides, and fed 500 Acaris suum eggs from pigs to his younger brother! Koino didnt fare so well, but he did demonstrate the pulmonary syndrome associated with early Ascaris infections. He also inferred the route of migration by finding larvae in his sputum. In 1970, annoyed that his roommates were bugging him to pay his rent on time, a postdoc at McGill University in Montreal, Eric Kranz, laced their food with hundreds of thousands of Ascaris lumbricoides eggs that he had taken from the parasitology lab at Macdonald College. Richard Davis, William Butler, David Fisk, and Keith Fern were each hospitalized and Kranz was charged with attempted murder. Ascaris eggs are extremely resistant to destruction; they remain viable for months to years. In 1920, Yoshido even demonstrated their ability to remain viable in the face of ...

BACKGROUND: Caenorhabditis elegans has traditionally been used as a model for studying nematode biology, but its small size limits the ability for researchers to perform some experiments such as high-throughput tissue-specific gene expression studies. However, the dissection of individual tissues is possible in the parasitic nematode Ascaris suum due to its relatively large size. Here, we take advantage of the recent genome sequencing of Ascaris suum and the ability to physically dissect its separate tissues to produce a wide-scale tissue-specific nematode RNA-seq datasets, including data on three non-reproductive tissues (head, pharynx, and intestine) in both male and female worms, as well as four reproductive tissues (testis, seminal vesicle, ovary, and uterus). We obtained fundamental information about the biology of diverse cell types and potential interactions among tissues within this multicellular organism. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Overexpression and functional enrichment analyses ...

[online]. 2009, vol.43, n.1, pp. 21-26. ISSN 1851-6114.. Previous experiences have demonstrated the same ABO System epitopes in A. lumbricoides extracts and in their hosts. The aims of this work were to study ABO antigenic determiner absorption by in vitro culture of the helminths larvae and to investigate ABO-Blood-Group-like substances in larvaes excretion/ secretion products. Larvae were obtained by hatching of A. lumbricoides eggs. The larvae were collected in 5 tubes with RPMI 1640 medium by the Baermann method. A, B and O erythrocytes were added in 3 of the tubes. The two remaining tubes were used as absorption Negative Control and to investigate larvaes excretion/secretion products. The Semiquantitative Inhibition Agglutination Test was applied by using monoclonal antibodies. The results showed ...
Geophagy has been associated with iron deficiency and anaemia, but no causal relationship has been established. To clarify this, we conducted a two-by-two factorial randomised, controlled trial on the effect of iron and multimicronutrient supplementation on geophagy in Zambian schoolchildren in Lusaka, from February to December 2001. Of the 406 children, 212 (52.2%) were girls and the mean (range) age was 10.2 (7-15) years. Geophagy was reported by 302 (74.4%) and more often in girls than in boys (80.2 vs. 67.7%, P = 0.007). The mean (range) daily earth intake was 25.2 (1-200) g. Geophageous children had more often geophageous relatives than non-geophageous children (79.5 vs. 1.9%, P , 0.001). Geophageous children had lower serum ferritin (20.5 vs. 25.0 microg/l, P = 0.032) but not haemoglobin (Hb) (129.2 vs. 130.4 g/l, P = 0.59), than non-geophageous. Among those with Hb , 130 g/l, geophageous children had significantly higher prevalence (53.7 vs. 30.6%, P = 0.024) of Ascaris lumbricoides ...
Ascaris lumbricoides is one of the most common of the intestinal worms. It is a roundworm and infection with it is called Ascariasis. Children are more frequently and more heavily infected than adults because of their habit of putting all kinds of things into their mouths. If these objects are contaminated with ascaris eggs from human faeces the children swallow the eggs and thus become infected ...
Rats were immunized with crude Ascaris extracts together with Bordetella pertussis organisms and the homocytotropic antibody titers were estimated by homologous PCA. Rats injected with 1 mg of crude extract produced homocytotropic antibodies giving and average PCA titer of 1:80. A second injection of 100 µg of the extract given 6 days later, without B. pertussis vaccine, caused a considerable increase in the PCA titer. The crude extract was fractionated by DEAE-cellulose chromatography and the fractions were tested in P-K type reactions. The homocytotropic antibodies produced in rats immunized with the crude extract demonstrated a tendency to react with the fractions displaying a negative charge at pH 8.. The capacity of rats to produce Hc antibodies to part of the antigenic components present in the crude extract but not against others was demonstrated when rats were immunized separately with isolated fractions.. ...

A procedure for the isolation of malic enzyme from muscle tissue of the roundworm Ascaris suum is described. The fractionation method yields relatively large quantities of the enzyme,with a specific activity of fifteen moles of malate converted to pyruvate and carbon dioxide per min per mg at 25º. Homogeneity was established with analytical ultracentrifugation, zone electrophoresis, isoelectric focusing, and rechromatography. The molecular weight of the enzyme was 250,000, and it is dissociated under several conditions into four identical monomers of 64,000 daltons. The enzyme exists as a single electrophoretic form and prefers manganous and NAD over other cations and NADP. Ammonium sulfate competes with manganous for the active site and titration with DTNB yields eight thiol groups per mole. Titration of the first four thiol groups is accompanied by a complete loss in enzyme activity. Equilibrium dialysis, product inhibition, and initial velocity studies suggest a rapid-equilibrium random sequential
The malic enzyme gene of Ascaris suum was cloned into the vector pTRC99a in two forms encoding alternative amino-termini. The resulting plasmids, pMEA1 and pMEA2, were introduced into Escherichia coli...
The day started with the presidential research symposium on parasite ecology, given by Celia Holland on Ascaris. She is talking about how parasites tend to aggregate: the variance to mean ratio is almost always greater than one (higher numbers mean more aggregation). Ascaris infection is a very bad, neglected tropical disease - maybe one of the worst in terms on number of people infected world wide. A big chunk of her talk was about trying to develop a model for Ascaris infection. The only animal that Ascaris will go through its entire life cycle are pigs. Well, pigs are big, expensive, and tricky to house. So, can we do it in a mouse? Well, sort of. The Ascaris will do some of their life cycle in mice, and some mouse strains are better hosts than others ...

Mesenteric lymph node cells were obtained from rabbits that were primed with dinitrophenylated ragweed antigen (DNP-Rag) and supplemented with free Ascaris antigen (Asc); in vitro anti-hapten antibody response of the primed cells was studied. It was found that stimulation of Rag-sensitized cells with free Rag enhanced anti-DNP antibody response to DNP-unrelated carrier conjugate (DNP-KLH) but suppressed the response of the same cell suspension to DNP-Asc. It was also found that both IgG and IgE antibody responses to DNP-Rag were suppressed by the addition of free Asc with the homologous antigen. Mechanisms involved in the enhancement and suppression of antibody response by free carrier were explored with cell-free supernatant (CFS) obtained from the culture of primed lymph node cells with free carrier. The results showed that essentially all CFS preparations studied enhanced antibody response when they were added to primed lymph node cells which had been treated with a hapten-protein conjugate. ...

Amoeboid motility requires spatiotemporal coordination of biochemical pathways regulating force generation and consists of the quasi-periodic repetition of a EPZ-6438 motility cycle driven by actin polymerization and actomyosin contraction. tensional stress and that wild-type cells develop two opposing EPZ-6438 "pole" forces pulling the front and back toward the center whose strength is modulated up and down periodically in each cycle. We demonstrate that nonmuscular myosin II complex (MyoII) cross-linking and motor functions have different roles in controlling the spatiotemporal distribution of traction forces the changes in cell shape and the duration of all the phases. We show that the time required to complete each phase is dramatically increased in cells with altered MyoII motor function demonstrating that it is required not only for contraction but also for protrusion. Concomitant loss of MyoII actin cross-linking leads to a force redistribution throughout the cell perimeter pulling inward ...

may experience allergic reactions (rash, cough) and irregularities in the bowel (nausea, diarrhea, vomiting).But the disease is often without symptoms.. rapidly multiplying, roundworm can lead to complications such as intestinal obstruction, liver abscesses, and if it enters the lungs - to suffocation.Infectious diseases caused against the background of the parasite, have a more severe course.Therefore, it is imperative to carry out timely treatment of Ascaris.. How to diagnose an infection? often difficult to make a differential diagnosis between helminth infections and any intestinal pathologies.. diagnosis can be made after the detection of Ascaris eggs in the feces of animals or themselves worm.But the difficulty is that all worms are cyclical reproduction, however larvae Eggs are not always.. there is an increase in blood eosinophils, which is the result of an allergic reaction on all the worms..

I think that all organisms on earth whether they are parasites or virtually non-parasitic organisms offer some advantages to humans. Macro-parasitic organisms like ascaris also offers some advantages for food processing. These worms digests a rather indigestible fibrous/ cell-wall component of a vegetable/plant that we eat making its by-products readily available for us to digest more fully for other usage. All creatures on earth are important although the one we recognise as ecologically important are most of the time impressed on everybodys mind, overlooking the advantages of other organisms at the backstage of ecological food-web ...
Running will help lose muscle mass and more importantly body fat quicker than most exercise due to the high impact of the exrcise. But be careful as if you have not run before regulary the chance of injury may be quite high. Be sensible with it if you are going to start running and start at an easy time period first... maybe 15 mins jogging. Do this 2-3 times week for about 4 weeks. If this is ok then increase the time to 20 mins or 30 mins. Maybe do 1 longer run each week of up to an hour but you have to build to this time gradually ...

Post colonoscopy, the patient reported improvement in his symptoms and was discharged. At subsequent follow-up 2 weeks post-discharge, he remained well.. Ascaris Lumbricoides infestation is uncommon in developed countries. This patient started work in Singapore only 6 months prior to presentation. A variety of gastrointestinal complications have been associated with ascaris infestation including intestinal obstruction, perforation, volvulus, intussusception, appendicitis, cholecystitis, biliary colic, cholangitis, hepatic abscess, pancreatitis, depending on the site and severity of infestation.. We postulate that in this case, the large worm in the patients caecum contributed at least partially to his symptoms. The fact that his symptoms improved after endoscopic intervention is consistent with this. Indeed, on further questioning, he reported experiencing an intermittent, dull ache in the RIF for several months prior to his presentation with acute pain.. The diagnosis of ascaris infestation is ...
O setor suinícola brasileiro tem enfrentado nos últimos anos, barreiras para exportação da carne, principalmente relacionadas a questões sanitárias e ao bem-estar animal. Em relação às questões sanitárias, grande destaque tem sido dado às parasitoses intestinais causadas por helmintos e às falhas no processo de vermifugação decorrentes da resistência a antiparasitários. Portanto, é crescente a necessidade de se estudar o perfil epidemiológico dos parasitas que acometem os animais e a partir daí avaliar estratégias de controle alternativos e sustentáveis.O objetivo desse trabalho foi avaliar métodos alternativos de controle para Ascaris suum na produção de suínos. O trabalho foi dividido em quatro estudos, realizados em etapas distintas. No primeiro objetivou-se avaliar a epidemiologia do A. suum em rebanhos suinícolas localizado na micro-região de Ponte Nova, na Zona da Mata de Minas Gerais - Brasil. No segundo ensaio, foi avaliada a constituição fitoquímica do ...
Helminth infections and allergic diseases are associated with IgE hyperresponsiveness but the genetics of this phenotype remain to be defined. Susceptibility to Ascaris lumbricoides infection and antibody levels to this helminth are associated with polymorphisms in locus 13q33-34. We aimed to explore this and other genomic regions to identify genetic variants associated with the IgE responsiveness in humans. Forty-eight subjects from Cartagena, Colombia, with extreme values of specific IgE to Ascaris and ABA-1, a resistance marker of this nematode, were selected for targeted resequencing. Burden analyses were done comparing extreme groups for IgE values. One-hundred one SNPs were genotyped in 1258 individuals of two well-characterized populations from Colombia and Sweden. Two low-frequency coding variants in the gene encoding the Acidic Mammalian Chitinase (CHIA rs79500525, rs139812869, tagged by rs10494133) were found enriched in high IgE responders to ABA-1 and confirmed by genetic association ...
As noted, in humans, the IgE and IgG responses to ABA-1 (Asc l 1) is more related with protection to A. lumbricoides infection[64] than with allergy symptoms. However, studies addressed to evaluate directly the allergenic role of this molecule have not been done, and therefore, the possibility that it acts as an allergy-symptoms inducer has not been ruled out. In contrast, tropomyosin is a well recognized invertebrate pan-allergen and Asc l 3 has a high degree of homology and cross-reactivity with mite tropomyosins. Although a role as protective antigen, such as Onchocerca tropomyosin[79] is also possible, we have data suggesting that it is associated with allergy symptoms, [15] which may be of epidemiological importance because a high percentage of the population living in the tropics have IgE reactivity to tropomyosins.. Our studies about the IgE responses to ABA-1 and Ascaris extract in humans suggest different roles for the allergens of this nematode. For example, in a case-control survey to ...

Author Summary Parasitic nematode worms cause serious health problems in humans and other animals. They can induce allergic-type immune responses, which can be harmful but may at the same time protect against the infections. Allergens are proteins that trigger allergic reactions and these parasites produce a type that is confined to nematodes, the nematode polyprotein allergens (NPAs). These are synthesized as large precursor proteins comprising repeating units of similar amino acid sequence that are subsequently cleaved into multiple copies of the allergen protein. NPAs bind small lipids such as fatty acids and retinol (Vitamin A) and probably transport these sensitive and insoluble compounds between the tissues of the worms. Nematodes cannot synthesize these lipids, so NPAs may also be crucial for extracting nutrients from their hosts. They may also be involved in altering immune responses by controlling the lipids by which the immune and inflammatory cells communicate. We describe the molecular
I think it is Ascariasis," she says. I glance at her semi-shocked, mostly-impressed. "This is how they live, they enter your stomach. The young ones crawl to your lungs and you cough them up. Then, you swallow what you coughed, and they start over." This tiny 62 year old woman with little formal education just summarized the lifecycle of Ascaris lumbricoides for me. I drop a couple of the best specimens into a jar of formalin and label it for pathology review. After about an hour I have the results of her liver function tests but am surprised to hear that our pathologists no longer review parasite slides for identification - the specimen has to go to the LA Public Health labs - that takes about a week to get results back. In any case, Im convinced that she has a worm infestation and give her the treatment (Albendazole) and a prescription for a few additional doses to take at home ...

There is clear empirical evidence that environmental conditions can influence Ascaris spp. free-living stage development and host reinfection, but the impact of these differences on human infections, and interventions to control them, is variable. A new model framework reflecting four key stages of the A. lumbricoides life cycle, incorporating the effects of rainfall and temperature, is used to describe the level of infection in the human population alongside the environmental egg dynamics. Using data from South Korea and Nigeria, we conclude that settings with extreme fluctuations in rainfall or temperature could exhibit strong seasonal transmission patterns that may be partially masked by the longevity of A ...

To get a muscular body shape, men also need to increase the frequency of dining options. As explained before, to get increased body muscle mass, you need to eat calories in a large enough quantity. However, the body naturally only able to digest calories in just a certain amount each time you eat. The explanation like this: for example, to shape the muscles of the body, necessary calorie of 3000 calories per day. If you eat just three meals a day, then you need to consume 1000 calories in each meal. Because the body is unable to digest all the incoming calories (1000 calories), then the rest of the calories that are not digested would be converted and stored as fat in the body. That precisely happened to your body instead of being fat, not muscular. ...
The in vitro anthelmintic evaluation of the crude extracts and solvent partitions on Pheretima posthuma and Ascarissuum (eggs and L2 stage) respectively showed significant results at the same concentration (10, 20, 40 and 80 mg/ml). This study provides a clear evidence for usage of Mucuna pruriens and Canarium schweinfurthii as an anthelmintic. The most potent ovicidal partition of C. schweinfurthii (Engl) leaves and bark and leaves of M. pruriens (DC) is hexane (100.00 ± 0.33), chloroform (98.20 ± 0.12) and chloroform (98.70 ± 0.88) partitioned crude respectively at 80 mg/ml while the most potent larvicidal partition is hexane (0.06%), chloroform (0.1%) and chloroform (0.2%). The active compounds are predominantly in the non-polar solvent which supports the tegumental diffusing activity of the compounds.

Ascariasis is the intestinal parasitic infection caused by Ascaris lumbricoides (roundworm). Its highest prevalence is observed in the tropical and subtropical areas. In contrast to silent forms of this illness or chronic symptomatology, massive infestation in children can lead to serious complications like intestinal obstruction requiring urgent surgical attention. We report a seven year old female child with severe sequelae of intestinal obstruction. ...
The levels of trehalose and the activity of trehalase during the development of Ascaris suum eggs were investigated. The level of trehalose in the zygote was high (2.96 ± 0.07 mg/g). During cleavage of eggs, it decreased (0.91 ± 0.35 mg/g). A higher concentration of the sugar was recorded at the blastula and during gastrulation, but it did not reach the uncleaved eggs level. In the early motile larvae, the concentration of trehalose was high (4.58 ± 2.01 mg/g). It decreased with development of L1 larvae (3.10 ± 1.47 mg/g). A rapid increase in trehalose reserves was observed between the L1 and L2 stages. The highest content of trehalose was found in invasive L2 larvae (5.78 ± 1.39 mg/g).. The activity of trehalase at the zygote stage was high (560.22 ± 322.31 U/mg). It decreased at the beginning of cleavage. It was the lowest at the 4-6-cell stage (189.76 ± 114.97 U/mg). An increase in the enzyme activity occurred after reaching the blastula stage (348.44 ± 343.34 U/mg). The highest ...

Discussion. The trichurid egg measurements were compatible with T. trichiura 7,12, a human parasite, differing from the swine parasite species (Table 1). This analysis is based on metric differences in egg length and width between the two species. Other trichurid species such as T. ovis (50.0-80.0 x 30.0-40.0µm), T. vulpis (70.0-80.0 x 37.0-40.0µm), T. campanula (68.0-72.0 x 30.0-36.0µm), and T. muris (57.0-62.0 x 34.0-36.0µm), all parasites of animals living in close contact with humans, were discarded by metric standards. As established before, it is possible to distinguish Trichuris species by egg size 13.. Ascaris and Trichuris are cosmopolitan helminths, and the two are usually present in the same host. Adult Ascaris live in the small intestine of the host, and adult Trichuris in the colon. Eggs passed in the feces need a suitable environment to continue development. Indiscriminate defecation near dwellings contaminates the soil with eggs. Ascaris eggs can remain viable for several ...
During April 2010-March 2013, the Maine Department of Health and Human Services investigated multiple cases of ascariasis that had been reported by health-care providers, veterinarians, and patients. All of the cases were in persons who had lived or worked on Maine farms and had frequent exposure to pigs. Ascariasis, a parasitic roundworm infection caused by Ascaris species, is the most common human intestinal worm infection globally.* However, because ascariasis is not a reportable disease, limited data exist regarding the incidence of this infection in the United States (1), and the number of annual cases in Maine is unknown. After investigation, 14 persons on seven farms in Maine were identified with Ascaris infection. To better assess the extent of the ascariasis problem, state health officials conducted field investigations at four of the seven farms with reported cases and collected worms from humans and pigs and from pooled pig feces. Human worm and pig worm specimens were sent to CDC for ...

Ascariasis is uncommon in United States of America but can be seen in immigrants and travelers. It can present with intestinal complications. We present a case of acute suppurative appendicitis with bowel perforation. Interestingly and unexpected, worms were palpated in the intestine in the operating room. Later, an adult Ascaris worm was identified in nasogastric tube canister. During hospitalization, a contrast-based computed tomographic scan revealed impressive finding of contrast filling defects in stomach and small intestine of the patient indicating the adult worms. The patient was treated with Ivermectin.
MITOSIS EXCERCISE 1. Examine prepared microscope slides of both animal cells (whitefish blastula) and plant cells (onion/allium root tip). Even though the cells in these tissues are rapidly dividing, most of the cells you will observe will be in interphase (between cell divisions). Using your microscope, scan the slides to find a cell in interphase and each one of the four stages of mitosis. Draw a schematic representation of your observations for both plant and animal cells at each stage in the space provided below. Indicate and clearly label the important features or events of each stage. 2. Using the Micro-Slide Viewers, examine the prepared micro-slides of: A. Plant Mitosis: Onion (Allium) Root Tip. The diploid number of chromosomes of allium is 16. The total magnification of the images is 1000 X. B. Animal Mitosis: Ascaris egg sac. The diploid number of chromosomes of Ascaris is 4. The total magnification of the images is 750 X.
For many people in the west, a nematode infestation is an unpleasant, but rare event. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the inhabitants of many less developed countries, where nematodes are rife and cause many crippling diseases. Fortunately, modern medicine is equipped with a battery of drugs to rid patients of unwanted parasites. But the threat remains that the nematodes will eventually outsmart the pharmacologists and become resistant to the three major classes of drug currently in use. Which is why Richard Martin is keen to understand how one of these nematode targeting drugs, levamisole, attacks the nematode, Ascaris suum. He hopes this will help us to design new therapies to keep medicine ahead of the nematode in the race to beat resistance (p. 3979).. Martin explains that many of the drugs, called anthelmic drugs, which are currently so effective in treating roundworm infections, were originally developed for use in western veterinary practice. He explains that many of these ...
Roundworms can infest the human gut, where they live, feed and reproduce. They dont often cause any symptoms, but are more likely to in large numbers.. A roundworm infection - also sometimes known as ascariasis or ascaris - is usually easy to treat.. Roundworms are parasites. They use the human body to stay alive, feed and reproduce.. 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.. ...
RESUMO Descreve-se uma técnica de sedimentação, na qual a suspensão fecal é colocada no topo de uma solução de sacarose de massa específica igual a 1,015 g/cm3. Em tubos de ensaio de 100 x 15 mm, experimentos em duplicata de sedimentação por gravidade foram realizados usando-se suspensões fecais homogeneizadas (colunas simples) e suspensões fecais sobrepostas às soluções de sacarose (colunas duplas). Contagens de cistos e de ovos e determinações turbidimétricas foram feitas nos sedimentos obtidos após definidos intervalos de tempo. A maioria dos ovos de Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura e Ancylostomidae sedimentaram dentro de 20 minutos em coluna simples e entre 30 e 60 minutos em coluna dupla. Cistos de Giardia duodenalis demandaram períodos muito mais longos para sedimentar em coluna dupla do que em coluna simples; após 180 minutos (período máximo de observação), sedimentos de coluna dupla produziram 60,0% da contagem da coluna simples.

Tincture of iodine, iodine tincture, or weak iodine solution is an antiseptic. It is usually 2-7% elemental iodine, along with potassium iodide or sodium iodide, dissolved in a mixture of ethanol and water. Tincture solutions are characterized by the presence of alcohol. It was used from 1908 in pre-operative skin preparation by surgeon Antonio Grossich. In the United Kingdom the development of an iodine solution for skin sterilisation was pioneered by Lionel Stretton. The British Medical Journal published the detail of his work at Kidderminster Infirmary in 1909. Stretton used a much weaker solution than that used by Grossich. He claimed in 1915 that Grossich had been using a liquid akin to Liquor Iodi Fortis, and that it was he, Stretton, who had introduced the method using Tincture of Iodine BP which came to be used across the world. USP Tincture of Iodine is defined in the U.S. National Formulary (NF) as containing in each 100 mL, 1.8 to 2.2 grams of elemental iodine, and 2.1 to 2.6 grams of ...

Abstract Background The convergent distribution of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and helminth infections has led to the suggestion that infection with helminths exacerbates the HIV epidemic in developing countries. In South Africa, it is estimated that 57% of the population lives in poverty and carries the highest burden of both HIV and helmith infections, however, the disease interactions are under-researched. Methods We employed both coproscopy and Ascaris lumbricoides-specific serum IgE to increase diagnostic sensitivity and to distinguish between different helminth infection phenotypes and their effects on immune responses in HIV co-infected individuals. Coproscopy was done by formol ether and Kato Katz methods. HIV positive and negative adults were stratified according to the presence or absence of A. lumbricoides and/or Trichuris trichuria eggs with or without elevated Ascaris IgE. Lymphocyte subsets were phenotyped by flow cytometry. Viral loads, serum total IgE and eosinophils ...

Studies on intestinal helminthiasis among school children in Osogbo Local Government Area of Osun State, South-Western Nigeria. Abstract : Intestinal helminthiasis is one of the neglected parasitic diseases currently receiving attention from the international organization. This study was conducted in six selected primary schools in Osogbo town, southwestern Nigeria. Faecal samples from 336 pupils were examined using direct smear and formol either concentration method. Out of the 336 samples examined, 103 (30.1%) were positive for one or more intestinal parasites. Three helminth parasites were identified in the feacal samples namely; Ascaris lumbricoides (24%), hookworm (6%) and Trichuris trichura (3%) with cases of mixed infection; A. lumbricoides and hookworm (1.20%), A lumbricoides and T. trichura (0.3%), Hookworm and T. trichura (0.3%). None of the parasites was sex - dependent since the parasites were found in both sexes and all age groups. The infections were school dependent as public ...
