Pathogenesis of cancrum oris (noma): confounding interactions of malnutrition with infection. (1/1021)

This study showed that impoverished Nigerian children at risk for cancrum oris (noma) had significantly reduced plasma concentrations of zinc (< 10.8 micromol/L), retinol (< 1.05 micromol/L), ascorbate (< 11 micromol/L), and the essential amino acids, with prominently increased plasma and saliva levels of free cortisol, compared with their healthy counterparts. The nutrient deficiencies, in concert with previously reported widespread viral infections (measles, herpesviruses) in the children, would impair oral mucosal immunity. We postulate, subject to additional studies, that evolution of the oral mucosal ulcers including acute necrotizing gingivitis to noma is triggered by a consortium of microorganisms of which Fusobacterium necrophorum is a key component. Fusobacterium necrophorum elaborates several dermonecrotic toxic metabolites and is acquired by the impoverished children via fecal contamination resulting from shared residential facilities with animals and very poor environmental sanitation.  (+info)

Isolation of tick-borne encephalitis virus from wild rodents and a seroepizootiologic survey in Hokkaido, Japan. (2/1021)

To determine the vertebrate host of tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) virus in the southern part of Hokkaido, Japan, virus isolation was performed using spleens from small mammals captured in the area. Two virus strains were isolated, one strain from Apodemus speciosus and another from Clethrionomys rufocanus. Virus isolates were inoculated onto baby hamster kidney cell monolayers and antigen slides were prepared for an indirect immunofluorescent antibody assay. Two isolates were identified as TBE viruses by monoclonal antibody reactions. To specify the TBE-endemic area in Hokkaido, rodent, horse, and dog sera collected from 1992 to 1997 were tested for neutralization antibody against TBE virus previously isolated from a dog. The positive cases were distributed in four districts in the southern part of Hokkaido.  (+info)

Deriving meteorological variables across Africa for the study and control of vector-borne disease: a comparison of remote sensing and spatial interpolation of climate. (3/1021)

This paper presents the results of an investigation into the utility of remote sensing (RS) using meteorological satellites sensors and spatial interpolation (SI) of data from meteorological stations, for the prediction of spatial variation in monthly climate across continental Africa in 1990. Information from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) polar-orbiting meteorological satellites was used to estimate land surface temperature (LST) and atmospheric moisture. Cold cloud duration (CCD) data derived from the High Resolution Radiometer (HRR) on-board the European Meteorological Satellite programme's (EUMETSAT) Meteosat satellite series were also used as a RS proxy measurement of rainfall. Temperature, atmospheric moisture and rainfall surfaces were independently derived from SI of measurements from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) member stations of Africa. These meteorological station data were then used to test the accuracy of each methodology, so that the appropriateness of the two techniques for epidemiological research could be compared. SI was a more accurate predictor of temperature, whereas RS provided a better surrogate for rainfall; both were equally accurate at predicting atmospheric moisture. The implications of these results for mapping short and long-term climate change and hence their potential for the study and control of disease vectors are considered. Taking into account logistic and analytical problems, there were no clear conclusions regarding the optimality of either technique, but there was considerable potential for synergy.  (+info)

A hemocyte-like cell line established from the malaria vector Anopheles gambiae expresses six prophenoloxidase genes. (4/1021)

Cell lines from the malaria vector Anopheles gambiae have been established as a tool for the study of the mosquito innate immune system in vitro. Here, we describe the first continuous insect cell line that produces prophenoloxidase (PPO). This cell line (4a-3B) expresses constitutively six PPO genes, three of which are novel (PPO4, PPO5, and PPO6). The PPO genes show distinct temporal expression profiles in the intact mosquito, spanning stages from the embryo to the adult in an overlapping manner. Transient induction of larva-specific PPO genes in blood-fed adult females suggests that the developmental hormone 20-hydroxyecdysone may be involved in PPO gene regulation. Indeed, exposure of 4a-3B cells to 20-hydroxyecdysone in culture results in induction of those PPO genes that are mainly expressed in early developmental stages, and repression of PPO5, which is preferentially expressed at the adult stage. The cell line shows bacteria-induced immune transcripts that encode defensin and Gram-negative bacteria-binding protein, but no induction of PPO transcripts. This cell line most likely derives from a hemocyte lineage, and represents an appropriate in vitro model for the study of the humoral and cellular immune defenses of A. gambiae.  (+info)

Bednet impregnation for Chagas disease control: a new perspective. (5/1021)

BACKGROUND: To determine the efficacy and acceptability of deltamethrin-impregnated bednets in controlling Chagas disease in South America. METHODS: In three endemic departments of Colombia, a qualitative study on people's knowledge about Chagas disease, vectors, preventive measures and their willingness for collaboration in control operations was undertaken. Additionally, in an entomological study with 100 laboratory-bred Chagas vectors (Rhodnius prolixus), vectors were released for 5 nights (20 each night) in an experimental room, with the human bait protected for one night by an unimpregnated and for four nights by a deltamethrin-impregnated bednet (13 mg/m2). Vectors were stained with fluorescent powder for observation, collected after 10 h exposure in the experimental room and observed for a further 72 h. RESULTS: The study population did not know anything about Chagas disease, but believed the vector to transmit cutaneous leishmaniasis. Therefore willingness to take part in control operations was high. The experimental hut study showed a vector mortality rate of 95% in a room with impregnated nets and of 10% in a room with unimpregnated nets. CONCLUSION: This study opens a new perspective for Chagas disease control in integrated vector borne disease prevention programmes.  (+info)

Evaluation of the epidemic potential of western equine encephalitis virus in the northeastern United States. (6/1021)

The problem of evaluating the epidemic potential of western equine encephalitis in the northeastern United States is presented and possible reasons are discussed for the present lack of human and horse cases of this disease even though increased numbers of isolations of the virus have been obtained in the East during recent years. Epidemiologic factors of vector bionomics and virus strain variations are considered. It is concluded that while this virus strain can no longer be regarded as uncommon in the Northeast, the evidence indicates there is little potential for epidemic expression of this agent in the human and horse population. This appears to be due to differences in the bionomics of the mosquito Culiseta melanura, which serves as the primary enzootic vector in the northeastern United States and in the bionomics of Culex tarsalis that is the vector in the western region of the United States. Other limiting factors in the epidemic potential may be variations between virus strains located in the East and West.  (+info)

Density of sand flies (Diptera: psychodidae) in domestic and wild animal shelters in an area of visceral Leishmaniasis in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil. (7/1021)

The objective of the present study was to determine the association of sand flies with the presence of domestic and wild animals in the peridomiciliary area. The sand flies were collected using direct aspiration and CDC light traps placed in animal shelters. The results suggest that different sand flies species have different behavioral characteristics in an apparent preference for animal baits and that Lutzomyia longipalpis and Lu. evandroi were the most eclectic species regarding their biotope choice. Lu. longipalpis showed a distinct preference for horses and Lu. evandroi for armadillos.  (+info)

Natural rodent host associations of Guanarito and pirital viruses (Family Arenaviridae) in central Venezuela. (8/1021)

The objective of this study was to elucidate the natural rodent host relationships of Guanarito and Pirital viruses (family Arenaviridae) in the plains of central Venezuela. Ninety-two arenavirus isolates from 607 animals, representing 10 different rodent species, were characterized to the level of serotype. The 92 isolates comprised 19 Guanarito virus strains and 73 Pirital virus strains. The 19 Guanarito virus isolates were from Zygodontomys brevicauda; 72 (98.6%) of the 73 Pirital virus isolates were from Sigmodon alstoni. These results indicate that the natural rodent associations of these 2 sympatric arenaviruses are highly specific and that Z brevicauda and S. alstoni are the principal rodent hosts of Guanarito and Pirital viruses, respectively.  (+info)

How is Quality Control Operations abbreviated? QCO stands for Quality Control Operations. QCO is defined as Quality Control Operations somewhat frequently.
Chronic exposure to antigens may favor the production of IgG4 antibodies over other antibody types. Recent studies have shown that up to a 30% of normal human IgG4 is bi-specific and is able to recognize two antigens of different nature. A requirement for this specificity is the presence of both eliciting antigens in the same time and at the same place where the immune response is induced. During transmission of most vector-borne diseases, the pathogen is delivered to the vertebrate host along with the arthropod saliva during blood feeding and previous studies have shown the existence of IgG4 antibodies against mosquito salivary allergens. However, there is very little ongoing research or information available regarding IgG4 bi-specificity with regards to infectious disease, particularly during immune responses to vector-borne diseases such as malaria, filariasis or dengue virus infection. Here, we provide background information and present our hypothesis that IgG4 may not only be a useful tool to

United States national parks attract , 275 million visitors annually and collectively present risk of exposure for staff and visitors to a wide range of arthropod vector species (most notably fleas, mosquitoes, and ticks) and their associated bacterial, protozoan, or viral pathogens. We assessed the current state of knowledge for risk of exposure to vector-borne pathogens in national parks through a review of relevant literature, including internal National Park Service documents and organismal databases. We conclude that, because of lack of systematic surveillance for vector-borne pathogens in national parks, the risk of pathogen exposure for staff and visitors is unclear. Existing data for vectors within national parks were not based on systematic collections and rarely include evaluation for pathogen infection. Extrapolation of human-based surveillance data from neighboring communities likely provides inaccurate estimates for national parks because landscape differences impact transmission of ...

At their meeting held on Tuesday, October 9, 2018, at 7:00 PM in Barnesville, the Board of Managers, Buffalo-Red River Watershed District (BRRWD), authorized repairs for two Wilkin County ditch systems. The first repair is in response to a ditch system landowners request for review of a slope stability concern along Project No. 24, Wilkin County Ditch (C.D.) No. 44, on the north line of Section 12, Manston Township, along 170th ST. The channel is meandering and cutting into the ditch slope in three locations, causing a road safety hazard. BRRWD Engineer Erik S. Jones, Houston Engineering, Inc. (HEI), suggested that we hire a contractor to pull some of the material from the inside bends of the meanders to help rebuild the ditch slope. The sod could be salvaged and reused. The total estimated cost to repair all three locations is $2,000. The second repair was for three inlet culverts along Wilkin C.D.

A characteristic of stock in the refining zone is monitored and used to adjust a parameter, such as dilution water, feed screw speed and/or refiner gap to keep some variable substantially constant, close to a setpoint, within a range of the setpoint, close to a setpoint profile based on a distribution of a characteristic over the refining zone or a setpoint profile range. Refiner disk bar angle can be optimized to reduce refining zone temperature and energy use. Thereafter, the control method can be employed. One control method attempts to keep specific energy substantially constant by keeping a ratio between load and production substantially constant. Load is kept substantially constant by regulation dilution flow to keep refining zone temperature substantially constant. The feed screw is regulated to keep production substantially constant.
An estimated 45 percent of Americans usually make New Years Resolutions. And about a third of these resolutions pertain to weight, diet and health. But how long do resolutions really last? One week? One month? Maybe even two months? We all go in with good intentions to stick to our goals-so why do we often give up on our resolutions so quickly? Maybe it has less to do with willpower and more to do with what were resolving to do. If youre attempting to completely overhaul your entire lifestyle, it might prove harder to stick with than if youre vowing to change small habits that can have lasting effects. This year, make resolutions you can stick to and ditch those that are unattainable. Resolutions that focus on lasting and sustainable small changes rather then quick-and often unreasonable-transformations might be your key to success. Based on research, here are our 3 resolutions to make and 3 resolutions to ditch. -Breana Lai, M.P.H., R.D. Watch: How to lose weight with a meal plan ...

  • The anti-malaria campaign involved large-scale public works eradicating the disease within two decades. (
  • In 1897, Ronald Ross conclusively demonstrated that mosquitoes were not just a "nuisance", but vectors transmitting the deadly malaria parasite. (
  • Why did malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases elicit effective interventions while Lyme and the other tick-borne diseases have not? (
  • The malaria parasite is transmitted between humans and Anopheles mosquito vectors. (
  • Malaria control began primarily as public works projects founded on entomological knowledge about the mosquito vector [ 18 ]. (
  • The solution to malaria was seen chiefly in vector control and secondarily as the hygienic challenge of human exposure to mosquito bites. (
  • At times, the unfortunate thing about the rainy season is that the risk of getting infected with mosquitoes -borne diseases like dengue, chikungunya, and malaria increases. (
  • Background: DDT was among the initial persistent organic pollutants listed under the Stockholm Convention and continues to be used for control of malaria and other vector-borne diseases in accordance with its provisions on acceptable purposes. (
  • In some countries, DDT is used in response to the development of resistance in malaria vectors against pyrethroid and carbamate insecticides. (
  • Some other countries have stopped using DDT, in compliance to the Convention, or in response to DDT resistance in malaria vectors. (
  • The vector can transmit the pathogen between people -- that happens with malaria parasites, which are transmitted by mosquitoes - but it's also common for the vector to transmit pathogens from animals to humans. (
  • In an effort to accelerate the control of malaria and help eliminate it worldwide, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health, today announced approximately $14 million in first-year funding to establish 10 new malaria research centers around the world. (
  • These regions include some of the focus countries of the President's Malaria Initiative, an effort that since 2005 has worked to fight malaria in the regions most affected by the disease. (
  • One of our primary goals with these centers is to fund cutting-edge research in malaria-endemic areas that will keep up with the rapidly changing epidemiology of the disease," says NIAID Director Anthony S. Fauci, M.D. (
  • Malaria has been eliminated from many parts of the globe, but 40 percent of the world's population still live in areas where they are at risk for contracting the disease. (
  • According to Lee Hall, M.D., Ph.D., chief of the Parasitology and International Programs Branch in NIAID, sustainable and effective malaria control requires research in multiple settings on the complex interactions among the parasite, the mosquito vector, the local ecology and the human host. (

(
  • Vectors are mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas that spread pathogens. (
  • Vector-borne diseases are illnesses caused by pathogens and parasites in human populations and account for more than 17% of all infectious diseases. (
  • Vector-borne pathogens are spread to people and animals primarily through the bite of an infected mosquito, tick, or flea. (
  • Traditionally in medicine, however, a vector is an organism that doesn't cause disease itself but spreads infection by conveying pathogens from one host to another. (
  • Canine vector-borne diseases (CVBDs) include a diverse group of pathogens, some of which pose zoonotic concerns. (
  • In some cases, these vectors transmit pathogens from person to person. (
  • The paper highlights the role of vector-borne pathogens as prominent contributors to emerging infectious diseases. (
  • Most exotic vector-borne pathogens could potentially occur in the US. (

  • Tanya Johnson] In the commentary, you and Dr. Beard point out that vector-borne pathogens are especially likely to emerge. (
  • Climate is one of the factors that influence the distribution of diseases borne by vectors, such as fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes, which spread pathogens that cause illness. (
  • The Joint Action is expected to improve coordinated cross-sectoral actions to control infectious disease transmission and possible vectors for pathogens on ground transportation, on ships, and in aircrafts, in case of a serious cross-border threat to health affecting or inherently coming from the transport sector. (
  • Introduction into the variety of infectious diseases and their respective causative pathogens (Viruses, bacteria, parasitic protozoa and helminths, fungi). (
  • Even though some insects become hosts of different pathogens, they rarely get ill as a consequence of this relation because vectors are an essential element for pathogens to reach their final host , which is usually a vertebrate (as we humans). (
  • So, pathogens avoid to damage vectors because they need them to reach other organisms. (
  • Most of vectors are hematophagous insects (i.e., that feed on blood), thus the transference of pathogens to a new organism takes place by a more direct way, e.g. through saliva or blood. (
  • Therefore, for some pathogens using vectors to pass from one host to another is an essential fact to assure their survival and, especially, to guarantee their dispersal through the space. (
  • Many of the pathogens that cause neglected communicable diseases proliferate in areas where water supply and sanitation are inadequate. (
  • Climate change is already affecting vector-borne disease transmission and spread, and its impacts are likely to worsen. (

  • Integrated vector control can protect cattle-owning pastoralists in sub-Sahara Africa from tsetse affecting cattle health and mosquitoes affecting human health, based on field work in Ethiopia. (
  • Mosquitoes are small, but dangerous, and climate change is making the threat of mosquito-borne diseases far worse. (

  • the same mosquito also transmits other vector-borne diseases - dengue, chikungunya and yellow fever. (
  • A newly reported means of transmission, along with growing concern about increased spread of the disease, made dengue this week's top trending clinical topic. (
  • Dengue and other vector-borne diseases may soon experience increased spread due to climate change. (
  • Thankfully, earlier this year the US Food and Drug Administration approved the first vaccine designed to prevent dengue disease caused by all serotypes, for individuals aged 9-16 years with previously confirmed dengue infection who live in endemic areas. (
  • The disease is a bacterial infection caused by the bites of certain, very small, infected ticks. (
  • Lyme disease and the ticks that carry it are rare or non-existent in the Rocky Mountain States, Hawaii, and Alaska. (
  • In nature, the Lyme disease bacteria exist in a cycle involving ticks and small animals, most specifically the wild white-footed mouse. (
  • Birds may also transport these ticks for great distances and be a factor in the spread of the disease. (
  • Only ticks have been shown to be of any importance in Lyme disease transmission to humans. (
  • Ticks which transmit Lyme disease do bite and can infect both dogs and cats. (
  • Although pets do not directly transmit Lyme disease to man, the presence of infected ticks on the pet may pose a hazard to both the pet and owner. (
  • 1 In considering ways to control Lyme disease, it is essential to examine the role of ticks and to consider measures that will reduce their ability to transmit infection. (
  • Introduction, Sign, Symptoms, Prevention and Management of Lyme Disease Caused by Borrelia burgdorferi Channeled through Ixodes Ticks as Vector. (
  • Lyme disease is caused by ticks. (
  • The expanding range of ticks requires practitioners to be cognizant of diseases in their area and to continue testing if results are negative at first or the patient doesn't respond to treatment. (
  • Vector-borne diseases-those transmitted to people by intermediary organisms, primarily insects and ticks-have become significantly more common and more widespread in the United States in the past decade. (
  • Although large animals can transmit diseases to humans, the term "vector" almost always refers to blood-feeding insects and ticks. (
  • Lyme disease, spread by ticks, is by far the most prevalent overall, although the relative importance of different diseases varies by region. (
  • Ticks-small, blood-feeding arachnids (a class of arthropods separate from insects)-are responsible for almost 95 percent of all vector-borne disease cases in the United States. (
  • Blacklegged ticks (the ticks that cause Lyme disease) live in moist and humid environments, particularly in and near wooded or grassy areas. (
