Independent evaluation of the Nigrosin-Eosin modification of the Kato-Katz technique. (1/190)

A new modified quantitative Kato-Katz thick-smear technique for the detection of helminth eggs in faeces preserves hookworm eggs unaltered for a long time, while with the classic Kato-Katz technique, they disappear after approximately 2 h in tropical climates and thus slides must be read within hours after sample collection. For an independent comparison of these two laboratory techniques, faecal smears from 263 school children were examined in two surveys and prevalence, intensity of infection and costs of surveys calculated. There was no statistical difference between the methods in detecting prevalence and stratification of the sample in different classes of intensity. While there was no statistical difference for the arithmetic mean of the epg for T. trichiura and only a small difference for A. lumbricoides (P=0.04), we observed a highly significant difference for hookworm mean intensities of infections (P<0.001). From the public health viewpoint both methods provided similar results, but due to its simplicity and widespread use the classical Kato-Katz technique remains first choice for community investigation of soil-transmitted nematodes. However, the Nigrosin-Eosin approach has several advantages and can be a valuable alternative in certain circumstances.  (+info)

Developmental regulation of SR protein phosphorylation and activity. (2/190)

Serine/arginine-rich splicing factors (SR proteins) are substrates for serine phosphorylation that can regulate SR protein function. We have observed gross changes in SR protein phosphorylation during early development coincident with major zygotic gene activation in the nematode Ascaris lumbricoides. These differences correlate with large-scale changes in SR protein activity in promoting both trans- and cis-splicing. Importantly, inactive early stage extracts can be made splicing competent on addition of later stage SR proteins. These data suggest that changes in SR protein phosphorylation have a role in the activation of pre-mRNA splicing during early development.  (+info)

Genetic analysis of susceptibility to infection with Ascaris lumbricoides. (3/190)

Epidemiologic studies of helminthic infections have shown that susceptibility to these parasites frequently aggregates in families, suggesting the possible involvement of genetic factors. This paper presents a genetic epidemiologic analysis of Ascaris lumbricoides infection in the Jirel population of eastern Nepal. A total of 1,261 individuals belonging to a single pedigree were assessed for intensity of Ascaris infection at two time points. Following an initial assessment in which all individuals were treated with albendazole, a follow-up examination was performed one year later to evaluate reinfection patterns. Three measures of worm burden were analyzed, including eggs per gram of feces, direct worm counts, and worm biomass (weight). For all traits, variance component analysis of the familial data provided unequivocal evidence for a strong genetic component accounting for between 30% and 50% of the variation in worm burden. Shared environmental (i.e., common household) effects account for between 3% and 13% of the total phenotypic variance.  (+info)

A controlled evaluation of two school-based anthelminthic chemotherapy regimens on intensity of intestinal helminth infections. (4/190)

BACKGROUND: School-based deworming programmes have been promoted as a cost-effective strategy for control of nematode infection in developing countries. While numerous efficacy studies have been conducted, there is little information on actual programme effectiveness in areas of intense transmission. METHODS: A randomized trial of a school-based deworming programme was conducted in 12 primary schools on Pemba Island, Zanzibar. Four schools each were randomized to control, twice a year deworming with single dose mebendazole or three times a year deworming. Baseline and 12-month follow-up data on helminth infection using the Kato-Katz technique, demographic information and nutritional status were collected on 3028 children from March 1994 to May 1995. RESULTS: Intensity of infection measured as eggs per gram of faeces (epg) declined significantly for Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura and hookworm infections in both treatment groups. A. lumbricoides infection intensity declined 63.1% and 96.7% in the twice and three times per year treatment groups compared to the controls. T. trichiura infection intensity declined 40.4% and 75.9% respectively and hookworm intensity declined 35.3% and 57.2% respectively compared to control schools. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that school-based programmes can be a cost-effective approach for controlling the intensity of intestinal helminth infection even in environments where transmission is high.  (+info)

SR proteins are required for nematode trans-splicing in vitro. (5/190)

SR (ser/arg) proteins have been shown to play roles in numerous aspects of pre-mRNA splicing, including modulation of alternative splicing, commitment of substrates to the splicing pathway, and splice site communication. The last of these, splice site communication, is particularly relevant to trans-splicing in which the 5' and 3' exons originate on separate molecules. The participation of SR proteins in naturally occurring, spliced leader RNA-dependent transsplicing has not been examined. Here, we have isolated SR proteins from an organism that performs both trans- and cis-splicing, the nematode Ascaris lumbricoides. To examine their activity in in vitro splicing reactions, we have also developed and characterized an SR protein-depleted whole-cell extract. When tested in this extract, the nematode SR proteins are required for both trans- and cis-splicing. In addition, the state of phosphorylation of the nematode SR proteins is critical to their activity in vitro. Interestingly, mammalian (HeLa) and A. lumbricoides SR proteins exhibit equivalent activities in cis-splicing, while the nematode SR proteins are much more active in trans-splicing. Thus, it appears that SR proteins purified from an organism that naturally trans-splices its pre-mRNAs promote this reaction to a greater extent than do their mammalian counterparts.  (+info)

Immunochemical characterization and diagnostic potential of a 63-kilodalton Schistosoma antigen. (6/190)

Schistosoma circulating antigens were used for the detection of active infection. Anti-S. mansoni IgG2a monoclonal antibody (MAb) designated C5C4 was generated. The target epitope of this MAb was detected in adult worms, eggs, and cercariae antigenic extracts of S. mansoni and S. haematobium, had a molecular size of 63 kD, and was not detected in Fasciola hepatica and Ascaris. In addition, a 50-kD degradation product was identified only in the urine of infected individuals. Analysis by high-performance liquid chromatography of the purified antigen demonstrated only one peak. The 63-kD antigen was characterized as a protein containing 40.4% hydrophobic, 7.5% acidic, and 8.8% basic amino acids. The C5C4 MAb was used in a Fast Dot-ELISA for rapid and simple diagnosis of human schistosomiasis. The 63-kD circulating antigen was detected in 92% of urine samples from 330 S. mansoni-infected individuals, with 16% false-positive results among 130 noninfected individuals.  (+info)

Clinical features and management of biliary ascariasis in a non-endemic area. (7/190)

Biliary ascariasis is common in certain geographical areas of the world. In India, it is common in the Kashmir valley and only stray cases have been reported from other parts of the country. Between January 1995 and May 1997, 14 patients with biliary ascariasis were seen at our centre, which is more than 1000 km from the Kashmir valley. The mean (+/- SD) age of the patients was 31.7 (+/- 6.1) years and all were females. None of them had been to a place known to be endemic for biliary ascariasis. Four patients presented with acute cholangitis, eight with acute abdominal pain and vomiting, and the remaining two were diagnosed incidentally during surgery for gallstone disease. Barring these two patients, ultrasound examination of the abdomen diagnosed the condition accurately. In 10 patients, a part of the worm was visible outside the papilla of Vater. The roundworm was caught in a Dormia basket and could be extracted in nine patients. In one patient the worm migrated inside the bile duct while it was being caught in a Dormia basket. In this and two other patients, in whom the worm had migrated completely inside the bile duct, worms were removed with the help of a Dormia basket after endoscopic sphincterotomy. There were no complications of endoscopic therapy. In the two patients in whom biliary ascariasis was detected during surgery, the worms were removed after choledocholithotomy. On a mean follow-up of 13.8 months, only one patient had a recurrence of biliary ascariasis. It is concluded that biliary ascariasis is not an uncommon disease and must be considered as a possibility in patients presenting with acute cholangitis and biliary pain even in a non-endemic area. Ultrasonography is an excellent diagnostic tool and endoscopic management is very effective and safe in the treatment of these patients.  (+info)

Multilocular pyogenic hepatic abscess complicating ascaris lumbricoides infestation. (8/190)

A 74-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with frequent right flank pain. The multiple multilocular hepatic abscesses were revealed by computed tomography. Radiographs following a barium meal showed a linear filling defect in the ileum consistent with ascariasis. One day after treatment with pyrantel pamoate, an Ascaris was passed in the stool. The pyogenic hepatic abscesses gradually healed with both antibiotics and continuous drainage. After 2 months, he was discharged. In this case, the pyogenic hepatic abscesses were thus considered to have been caused by an inflammation which spread through the portal vein.  (+info)

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 ...
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 ...

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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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. ...

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 ...

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 ...
alaria is a major public health problem in tropical and subtropical countries particularly sub-Saharan Africa. Studies have shown that in Tanzania malaria, schistosome and soil-transmitted helminth infections (STH) (Hookworms, Ascaris lumbricoides and Trichuris trichiura) are co-endemic and that they share the human hosts. It has been hypothesized that co-infection with schistosomes and STH may modulate the immune response to Plasmodium falciparum leading to increased susceptibility to clinical malaria and severity of cases. The proposed study has as the main objective to investigate the effect of schistosome and STH infections and the effect of an anthelminthic intervention on P. falciparum malaria, related anaemia and malaria antibody responses among school and pre-school children in Mwanza, Tanzania. The study will include a cross-sectional baseline survey followed by an anthelminthic intervention trial of two years duration. At baseline, prevalence and intensity of malaria, schistosome and ...
Geohelminth infections are highly prevalent infectious diseases of childhood in many regions of the Tropics, and are associated with significant morbidity especially among pre-school and school-age children. There is growing concern that geohelminth infections, particularly exposures occurring during early life in utero through maternal infections or during infancy, may affect vaccine immunogenicity in populations among whom these infections are endemic. Further, the low prevalence of allergic disease in the rural Tropics has been attributed to the immune modulatory effects of these infections and there is concern that widespread use of anthelmintic treatment in high-risk groups may be associated with an increase in the prevalence of allergic diseases. Because the most widely used vaccines are administered during the first year of life and the antecedents of allergic disease are considered to occur in early childhood, the present study has been designed to investigate the impact of early exposures to
Quantifying the burden of parasitic diseases in relation to other diseases and injuries requires reliable estimates of prevalence for each disease and an analytic framework within which to estimate attributable morbidity and mortality. Here we use data included in the Global Atlas of Helminth Infection to derive new global estimates of numbers infected with intestinal nematodes (soil-transmitted helminths, STH: Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura and the hookworms) and use disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) to estimate disease burden. Prevalence data for 6,091 locations in 118 countries were sourced and used to estimate age-stratified mean prevalence for sub-national administrative units via a combination of model-based geostatistics (for sub-Saharan Africa) and empirical approaches (for all other regions). Geographical variation in infection prevalence within these units was approximated using modelled logit-normal distributions, and numbers of individuals with infection intensities above
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.

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 ...
Ascaris lumbricoides (the giant roundworm) is widespread in the tropics and subtropics where sanitation is poor and the soil is contaminated with its eggs. Ingested eggs hatch in the small bowel, cycle through the bloodstream and lungs, then return to the small bowel and develop into adult worms 15 to 30 cm long. Most infections are asymptomatic, but there may be pulmonary infiltrates with eosinophilia, abdominal discomfort and-in children with heavy infections-intestinal obstruction. Infection is diagnosed by finding eggs in the faeces. Treatment is with pyrantel, mebedenazole, or albendazole.... ...

The primary exposures are maternal geohelminth infections and infant infections during the first 2 years of life. Stool samples are collected during pregnancy or at the time of birth to determine maternal infection status and at 3, 7, 13, 18, and 24 months to determine infant infection status. Stool samples are examined using a combination of methods including modified Kato-Katz method, formol-ether concentration, and carbon-coproculture. Observations for measurement of differences are made at 7, 13, 24, 36, and 60 months of age. Follow-up of all participants will be to 5 years of age. ...
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 ...
We studied the influence of different additive materials (lime, and rice husk) and aeration conditions on Ascaris lumbricoides egg die-off in 24 vaults of an experimental excreta storage unit.; Excreta samples were collected once every two weeks over a 181-day period. Temperature, pH, and moisture content were recorded. A. lumbricoides eggs were quantitatively analyzed by…
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.

Soil-transmitted helminth infections continue to plague large parts of the world with India a significant contributor to the burden of disease [2]. Despite efforts to introduce usage of pit-latrines instead of open defecation, mass deworming program and improvement in water quality and sanitation, STH infections are still prevalent. A conducive climate for its growth, rapid and unplanned urbanization, social practices of open defecation and lack of community education and sanitation are some of the factors, which impedes control of infection in India. India undertook two massive deworming programme, one starting in year 2000 where a single dose of Albendazole and DEC was administered to filarial endemic regions and another in year 2015 covering 241 million children for treatment of STH infections. Although several studies have been published from different regions of India on this topic with the earliest scientific literature dating back as far as 1923 [51], the data on STH infections remains ...
The three major Soil-Transmitted Helminths (STH), Ascaris lumbricoides, Necator americanus/Ancylostoma duodenal and Trichuris trichiura are among the most prevalent parasites worldwide. The objective of this multicentre international study is to define the efficacy of a single 400 milligram dose of albendazole (ALB) against these three STHs using a standardised protocol. The trial will be undertaken among school age children in seven countries - Brazil, Cameroon, Cambodia, Ethiopia, India, Tanzania (Zanzibar) and Vietnam - each with a different epidemiologic pattern of infection. A trial of this nature is urgently required because in spite of the wide usage of albendazole over the last 3 decades, there is still no key publication reporting the efficacy of the anthelmintic accurately, and to modern conventional standards, that can act as a central reference for the baseline efficacy. The latter is critically important because albendazole is now being used even more widely, as large scale mass ...
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 ...
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.
Ang Ascariasis ay isang karamdaman na dulot ng parasitiko na bulateng roundworm na Ascaris lumbricoides.[1] Ang mga impeksiyon ay walang sintomas sa mahigit sa 85% ng mga kaso, lalong-lalo na kung napakaunti ng bilang ng mga bulate.[1] Ang mga sintomas ay rarami sa pagdami ng mga bulate at maaaring kasama rito ang hirap sa paghinga at lagnat sa pagsisimula ng karamdaman.[1] Maaaring sundan ang mga ito ng paglaki ng tiyan, pananakit ng tiyan at pagtatae.[1] Ang mga bata ang pinakakaraniwang naaapektuhan nito, at sa grupo ng edad na ito, ang impeksiyon ay maaaring magdulot ng mabagal na pagtaas ng timbang, kakulangan ng nutrisyon at mga problema sa pag-aaral.[1][2][3] Ang impeksiyon ay nagaganap sa pagkain ng mga pagkain o inumin na kontaminado ng mga itlog ng Ascaris na nanggagaling sa dumi o tae.[2] Napipisa ang mga itlog sa mga bituka, bumubutas sa gilid ng tiyan, ay lumilipat sa mga baga sa pamamagitan ng dugo.[2] Lumulusot ang mga ito sa alveoli at dumadaan sa trachea o daaan ng hangin mula ...
Author Summary In rural western Kenya, both malaria and intestinal infections with worms are common. Pregnant women are particularly vulnerable to infection with malaria, but the effect on pregnancy of intestinal infections with worms is not clear and may depend both on how heavy the worm infection is and on the type of worm. Additionally, it is not clear whether infections with worms may affect malaria infections. In this article, we begin to disentangle some of these issues. Intestinal infections with worms were diagnosed in three-quarters of 390 pregnant women in western Kenya who provided a stool sample. In these women, intestinal worm infections caused a modest decrease both in haemoglobin levels and indicators of nutritional status. Women in their second and third pregnancies who were diagnosed with one particular type of worm infection (Ascaris lumbricoides) were less likely to have malaria than other women in their second or third pregnancies who did not have this type of worm infection.
Ascariasis merupakan penyakit yang disebabkan oleh cacing bulat Ascaris lumbricoides yang parasit.[1] Dalam lebih 85% kes, jangkitan tidak menunjukkan apa-apa simptom, terutama sekali jika bilangan cacing adalah kecil.[1] Simptom bertambah dengan bilangan cacing yang ada dan boleh termasuk sesak nafas dan demam pada permulaan penyakit.[1] Simptom-simptom ini mungkin disusuli dengan simptom perut membuncit, sakit perut dan cirit-birit.[1] Kanak-kanak adalah golongan yang paling biasa dijangkiti dan pada peringkat umur ini, jangkitan boleh juga menyebabkan kurang penambahan berat badan, kekurangan zat makanan dan masalah pembelajaran.[1][2][3] Jangkitan berlaku melalui pengambilan makanan atau minuman yang tercemar oleh telur Ascaris daripada tinja.[2] Telur ini menetas di dalam usus, menebuk dinding perut, dan berpindah ke paru-paru melalui darah.[2] Di sana, larva-larva ini menebuk masuk ke dalam alveoli dan memasuki trakea, di mana ia diluahkan dengan batuk dan ditelan semula.[2] Larva-larva ...

A report is given of 34 cases of Ulcus rodens of the eye (Mooren), which were examined and treaded during a period of five years in Togo, West Africa. The cases were divided into two groups according to the development of the disease. In fourteen cases the progress of the disease was arrested by local treatment (described individually for each eye), and by simultaneous treatment of the Helminthosis (Ascaris lumbricoides and Ankylostoma duodenale), from which the patients were also suffering. It seems likely that Ulcus rodens is caused by an antigen-antibody reaction to Helminth toxins ...
braziliense and Uncinaria stenocephala infect each cats and puppies. Hookworms tend to be smaller than the enormous roundworms Ascaris lumbricoides and so lead to significantly less tissue harm and obstruction. The most important danger of hookworm an infection is anemia, secondary to lack of iron (and protein) in the intestine. The worms suck blood voraciously and harm the mucosa. Nonetheless, the blood decline within the stools just isnt visibly evident ...

Kato-Katz is a widely used method for the diagnosis of soil-transmitted helminth infection. Fecal samples cannot be preserved, and hence, should be processed on the day of collection and examined under a microscope within 60 min of slide preparation. Mini-FLOTAC is a technique that allows examining fixed fecal samples. We assessed the performance of Mini-FLOTAC using formalin-fixed stool samples compared to Kato-Katz and determined the dynamics of prevalence and intensity estimates of soil-transmitted helminth infection over a 31-day time period.; The study was carried out in late 2013 on Pemba Island, Tanzania. Forty-one children were enrolled and stool samples were subjected on the day of collection to a single Kato-Katz thick smear and Mini-FLOTAC examination; 12 aliquots of stool were fixed in 5% formalin and subsequently examined by Mini-FLOTAC up to 31 days after collection.; The combined results from Kato-Katz and Mini-FLOTAC revealed that 100% of children were positive for Trichuris ...
This study aimed to assess the effectiveness of a rural sanitation intervention, within the context of the Government of Indias Total Sanitation Campaign, to prevent diarrhoea, soil-transmitted helminth infection, and child malnutrition.

Trichuris trichiura is a form of nematode roundworm / whipworm which present in the intestine. Trichuris trichiura can be detected by stool examination which may reveal the present of barrel shaped eggs with plug at each end.
Strongyloides stercoralis infections have a worldwide distribution with a global burden in terms of prevalence and morbidity that is largely ignored. A public health response against soil-transmitted helminth (STH) infections should broaden the strategy to include S. stercoralis and overcome the epidemiological, diagnostic, and therapeutic challenges that this parasite poses in comparison to Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura, and hookworms. The relatively poor sensitivity of single stool evaluations, which is further lowered when quantitative techniques aimed at detecting eggs are used, also complicates morbidity evaluations and adequate drug efficacy measurements, since S. stercoralis is eliminated in stools in a larval stage. Specific stool techniques for the detection of larvae of S. stercoralis, like Baermanns and Kogas agar plate, despite superiority over direct techniques are still suboptimal. New serologies using recombinant antigens and molecular-based techniques offer new hopes in
The soil-transmitted helminths (also called geohelminths) are a group of intestinal parasites belonging to the phylum Nematoda that are transmitted primarily through contaminated soil. They are so called because they have a direct life cycle which requires no intermediate hosts or vectors, and the parasitic infection occurs through faecal contamination of soil, foodstuffs and water supplies. The adult forms are essentially parasites of humans, causing soil-transmitted helminthiasis (STH), but also infect domesticated mammals. The juveniles are the infective forms and they undergo tissue-migratory stages during which they invade vital organs such as lungs and liver. Thus the disease manifestations can be both local and systemic. The geohelminths together present an enormous infection burden on humanity, amounting to 135,000 deaths every year, and persistent infection of more than two billion people. Soil-transmitted helminths are typically from the following families of nematodes, ...

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 ...

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..

BACKGROUND: In the first part of this study, we investigated the prevalence and associated key factors of soil-transmitted helminth (STH) infections among Orang Asli children in rural Malaysia; an alarming high prevalence and five key factors significantly associated with infections were reported. Part 2 of this study aims to evaluate the knowledge, attitude and practices (KAP) on STH infections among Orang Asli in Peninsular Malaysia.. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was carried out among 215 households from 13 villages in Lipis district, Pahang, Malaysia. Demographic and socioeconomic information of the participants and their KAP on STH were collected by using a pre-tested questionnaire.. RESULTS: Overall, 61.4% of the participants had prior knowledge about intestinal helminths with a lack of knowledge on the transmission (28.8%), signs and symptoms (29.3%) as well as the prevention (16.3%). Half of the respondents considered STH as harmful, while their practices to prevent infections were ...
Cambridge researchers Hui-Yuan Yeh and Piers Mitchell used microscopy to study preserved faeces on ancient personal hygiene sticks (used for wiping away faeces from the anus) in the latrine at what was a large Silk Road relay station on the eastern margins of the Tamrin Basin, a region that contains the Taklamakan desert. The latrine is thought to date from 111 BC (Han Dynasty) and was in use until 109 AD.. They found that eggs from four species of parasitic worm (helminths) were present: roundworm (Ascaris lumbricoides), whipworm (Trichuris trichiura), tapeworm (Taenia sp.), and Chinese liver fluke (Clonorchis sinensis).. Chinese liver fluke is a parasitic flatworm that causes abdominal pain, diarrhoea, jaundice and liver cancer. It requires well-watered, marshy areas to complete its life cycle. Xuanquanzhi relay station was located at the eastern end of the arid Tamrin Basin, an area that contains the fearsome Taklamakan Desert. The liver fluke could not have been endemic in this dry ...
Both the Tsimane Amazonian Panel Study[6] and The Tsimane Health and Life History Project have studied the Tsimane since 2002.[7] Among other things, it appears that they do not develop heart disease as they age in the same ways as people in the developed world.[8] [9] The average Tsimané woman has nine children in her lifetime. A study of 983 Tsimané women found that 70% were infected with the parasitic roundworm Ascaris lumbricoides, which is believed to have increased their fertility rate by suppressing their immune system, leading to two additional children over the course of a lifetime.[10] ...
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 ...
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 ...
Epidemiological studies have shown inverse associations between geohelminth (intestinal helminth) infection and atopy, leading to the suggestion that geohelminths might protect against allergy. Periodic deworming of school children with anthelmintics is a widely implemented intervention and has raised concerns that such programmes could increase allergy. We investigated the effect of repeated anthelmintic treatments with albendazole over 12 months on the prevalence of atopy and clinical indices of allergy. ...

Ascariasis: The infection is caused by Ascaris lumbricoides roundworms and is typically found in tropical and sub-tropical areas. Persons with light infections may not exhibit any symptoms. Those who develop symptoms start with a persistent cough, wheezing, shortness within 1 week of exposure as a result of larvae migrating to the lungs and throat. The second set of symptoms, including abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bloody or worm in stools, fatigue, weight loss appear a few weeks (up to 2 or 3 months) later as the roundworms become adults and the females lay eggs which are shed through feces. The parasite can live in humans for up to 2 years. Children are particularly affected by this illness because they tend to play in and eat dirt. Treatment includes taking anthelmintic drugs. Hookworm , Ancyclostomiasis: This intestinal infection is primarily caused by Necator americanus, followed by Ancylostoma duodenale, and to a lesser extent by Ancylostoma ceylanicum nematodes typically ...

INTRODUCTION: different brands Albendazole are commercially available and the efficacious brand/s is/are required for effective control of STHs infection. Thus, this study is aimed at determining the therapeutic efficacy of different brands of albendazole against soil transmitted helminths among school children of Jimma town. METHODS: a cross sectional survey for prevalence of geohelminths and a randomized trial for efficacy study of different brands of albendazole was conducted among students Mendera Elementary School from March 29 to April 29, 2010. Positive subjects were randomized into three treatment arms using lottery method. The collected stool samples were examined by the McMaster method. CRs were calculated using SPSS windows version 16 and ERRs were calculated using appropriate formula. RESULTS: of the 715 school children who had their stools examined, 326 were positive for STHs with a prevalence rate of 45.6%. The cure rates (CR) for A. lumbricoides, T. trichiura and Hookworm were 99.4, 59.9
Soil-transmitted helminthiases (STH) are among the most common neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). Worldwide, it is estimated that 880 million children across 102 countries need treatment for these parasites. To eliminate morbidity from STH, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends the periodical large-scale treatment of children in endemic areas.. Since 2010, this public health approach - also called preventive chemotherapy (PC) - has been implemented and scaled up to impressive numbers. In 2018, more than 500 million children received medicine for STH.. This progress is being made possible thanks to an innovative public-private partnership, resulting in the largest medicine donation in history and tireless efforts by program managers, teachers and volunteers who support the implementation of annual targeted treatment of children at risk of STH.. In a new paper published in Infectious Diseases of Poverty, we show how sustaining preventive chemotherapy for at least 5 consecutive years ...

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. ...
For me, At first I didn t look, I was afraid of what I might see. Just the thought grossed me out! My second cleanse, I started looking and using a chop stick! lol.

So I just got a new gecko almost two weeks ago. I saw him pooping but I didnt really sit and look at it too well since I didnt want to disturb him before his two weeks are up. He pooped at the front of his enclosure earlier and I noticed there was some white tiny little strand in his poop. My first thought was worms since we used to foster kittens and deworming was always just great fun :-& I noticed two of them in that poop and one in another poop that I found. The others were too dried up

Although mankind has known about intestinal parasites for millennia, it has only been in the last century that scientists have recognized the diseases caused by zoonotic parasites. Soil-transmitted helminths (STHs), including Toxocara canis and Ancylostoma caninum, are an important subset of zoonotic parasites, and they have developed unique characteristics that allow them to infect humans and animals. Overt parasitism is no longer common in many developed nations; however, the subtle and varied symptoms associated with STH infection, along with the lack of experience and interest of the human healthcare industry, mean that many cases of zoonotic infection are missed. These diseases not only affect the health of humans, but they also have poverty-promoting effects. The lack of attention paid to these parasites in recent years has caused the World Health Organization to label them "neglected zoonotic diseases." Human culture and individual behaviors are important risk factors for these diseases, ...
Studies were carried out in Ibadan City, South-West Nigeria between March and June 2011, to determine the prevalence of intestinal parasites in vegetables sold in various markets within the city. Fifty samples each of 5 different vegetable types, Cabbage (Brassica deracea), Lettuce (Lactus sativa), Carrot (Daucus carota), Cucumber and green leafy vegetables were bought randomly from five different markets and examined for parasites in the laboratory using sedimentation method. Results show that 29(11.6%) out of the 250 vegetable samples examined had intestinal parasites. The prevalence of intestinal parasites in these plant tissues was found to be 22.0% in Cabbage, 14.0% in Carrot, 12.0% in lettuce and 10.0% in Green leafy vegetables. No parasites were detected in the 50 cucumber samples. Intestinal parasites detected included ova of Ascaris lumbricoides (51.7%), Hookworm larvae (27.6%) and larvae of Strongyloides stercoralis (20.7%). This study shows a high prevalence of intestinal parasites on ...
