The epidemiology of head lice and scabies in the UK. (1/178)

Anecdotal evidence suggests that the prevalence of both scabies and head lice is increasing and also that both conditions are becoming refractory to pesticide treatment. Using information obtained from the Office of National Statistics, Royal College of General Practitioners Weekly Returns Service, Department of Health, local surveys of school children from Bristol and drug sales of insecticides, we have confirmed that there has been a rise in the prevalence of both conditions. We have shown that scabies is significantly more prevalent in urbanized areas (P < 0.00001), north of the country (P < 0.000001), in children and women (P < 0.000001) and commoner in the winter compared to the summer. Scabies was also shown to have a cyclical rise in incidence roughly every 20 years. Head lice were shown to be significantly more prevalent in children and mothers (P < 0.000001) though both conditions were seen in all age groups. Head lice were also less common during the summer. Host behaviour patterns, asymptomatic carriage, drug resistance and tourism from countries or districts with a higher incidence may be important factors in the currently high prevalence of both scabies and head lice.  (+info)

Infestation status of head louse and treatment with lindane shampoo in children of primary school and kindergarten in Chinju-shi, Kyongsangnam-do, Korea. (2/178)

The infestation status of head louse among children attending primary schools and kindergartens in Chinju-shi, Kyongsangnam-do, Korea, was investigated between June and July 1999. Out of 2,288 children examined, 3.9% of boys (48/1,242) and 23.5% of girls (246/1,046) were infested with nits or adult/nymphs of lice. The effectiveness of lindane shampoo (1% gamma benzene hexachloride solution) was evaluated after one or two time applications to all the children infested. The negative conversion rate of pediculosis was 93.5%. Effective control measures are needed to control and prevent such ectoparasite infestation amongst children.  (+info)

Arbovirus of marine mammals: a new alphavirus isolated from the elephant seal louse, Lepidophthirus macrorhini. (3/178)

A novel alphavirus was isolated from the louse Lepidophthirus macrorhini, collected from southern elephant seals, Mirounga leonina, on Macquarie Island, Australia. The virus displayed classic alphavirus ultrastructure and appeared to be serologically different from known Australasian alphaviruses. Nearly all Macquarie Island elephant seals tested had neutralizing antibodies against the virus, but no virus-associated pathology has been identified. Antarctic Division personnel who have worked extensively with elephant seals showed no serological evidence of exposure to the virus. Sequence analysis illustrated that the southern elephant seal (SES) virus segregates with the Semliki Forest group of Australasian alphaviruses. Phylogenetic analysis of known alphaviruses suggests that alphaviruses might be grouped according to their enzootic vertebrate host class. The SES virus represents the first arbovirus of marine mammals and illustrates that alphaviruses can inhabit Antarctica and that alphaviruses can be transmitted by lice.  (+info)

Prevalence of sucking and chewing lice on cattle entering feedlots in southern Alberta. (4/178)

Beef calves from 2 sources entering southern Alberta feedlots in the winters of 1997-98 and 1998-99, were surveyed for the presence of lice. A random sample of multiple source (MS), that is, auction market-derived, calves entering commercial feedlots and single source (SS) calves entering a backgrounding feedlot were examined for the presence of lice at entry to the feedlot. A standardized examination, which involved hair-part examination of 8 louse predilection sites, was conducted on each selected calf to determine prevalence and intensity of infestation. The long-nosed sucking louse, Linognathus vituli, was the most commonly encountered species. This species infested from 57.8% to 95.6% of the calves selected from both MS and SS calves during both winters. Louse index values, indicating intensity of infestation, for L. vituli ranged from 1 to 243 lice per animal. The chewing louse, Bovicola bovis, was present on MS and SS calves only in the winter of 1998-99. The louse index values for B. bovis ranged from 1 to 230 lice per animal. Mixed infestations of the L. vituli and B. bovis were common. The little blue cattle louse, Solenopotes capillatus, was present only on the SS calves in the winter of 1997-98. The short-nosed sucking louse, Haematopinus eurysternus, was present at very low intensities, 1-2 lice per animal, on 2.6% to 4.4% of the MS calves during both winters. Comparison of results from the current study with published literature suggests that efforts to determine the economic impact of louse infestations are confounded by the lack of a uniform method to assess louse population levels.  (+info)

The role of community pharmacists in prescribing medication for the treatment of head lice. (5/178)

BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to discover whether the use of community pharmacy, rather than general practice, as the first port of call for suspected head lice infestation would represent an acceptable, effective and cost-reducing means of management in the community. METHODS: A before-and-after study was carried out of a new system of care delivery. Between September and November 1997, pharmacists in Nottingham City West recorded details of all patients attending with prescriptions for head lice treatment or those purchasing over-the-counter medication. The new system of care delivery began in January 1998, during which, pharmacists were providing advice and treatment for head lice, in the absence of a referral from general practice. Changes in prescribing behaviour were assessed from Prescribing Analysis and Cost (PACT) data. Acceptability and subjective assessment of the scheme (patients and professionals) was gauged from questionnaires. RESULTS: Referral patterns were altered drastically (away from general practice and towards self-referral) by the project, and the changes were apparent within the first month. This trend continued throughout and beyond the formal evaluation period. Cost analysis suggests that the community pharmacy scheme generates resource savings, largely driven by the lower cost of a pharmacy consultation, as opposed to a GP consultation. Questionnaire evidence suggests that both patients and health care professionals viewed the new arrangement as at least as acceptable as the old. CONCLUSION: With respect to the original objective, the new delivery system appears to provide no evidence of ineffectiveness; evidence of acceptability on the part of the majority of patients and professionals; and evidence of improved cost-effectiveness.  (+info)

Morphology of the leather defect light flecks and spots. (6/178)

The skin histology and the scanning electron microscope morphology of the hide defect light flecks and spots after tanning were studied in 11 steers infested with biting lice (Damalinia bovis). Nine steers from herds free of lice were used as controls. Skin biopsies from 6 of the animals in the lice infested group showed mild to moderate hyperkeratosis and moderate perivascular to diffuse dermatitis with infiltration of mainly mononuclear cells and some eosinophilic granulocytes. The steers were slaughtered at an age of 18 to 23 months. Light flecks and spots occurred on all examined hides from the infested group after tanning. No examined hides from the control group demonstrated similar damage. Both light microscopic examination of sections of tanned hide with light flecks and spots and scanning electron microscopy of the same defects showed superficial grain loss and craters with a irregular fibre base encircled by smooth and intact grain. The association between louse infestation at an early age and damage of hides following slaughter 6 to 15 months later, suggested that louse infestations lead to a prolonged or lifelong weakening in the dermis. This weakening may cause superficial grain loss during the tanning process.  (+info)

Eradication of lice in cattle. (7/178)

The purpose of this field study was to develop and evaluate eradication as a strategy to control lice in cattle. Thirty-three herds of cattle were selected and observed during a period of two and a half years. Before eradication, biting lice (Damalinia bovis) were present in 94% of the herds and 27% of the animals. Sucking lice (Linognathus vituli) were present in 42% of the herds and 5% of the animals. These levels were very similar to those reported from other countries in Northern Europe. The eradication strategy was successful in 28 of 33 herds, but lice were still present in 5 herds 3 to 6 months after treatment. Biting lice were present in all these 5 herds, sucking lice were present in 3 herds. During the next 12 months, nine of the 28 herds were reinfected with lice. Six herds were reinfected with just biting lice, 2 herds with just sucking lice and one herd was reinfected with both. There was no significant difference between the 2 louse species regarding the risk of unsuccessful eradication or reinfection. The only significant risk factor for reinfection was either purchase of livestock or use of common pasture, combined with failure in pre-treatment of newly introduced animals.  (+info)

Variation in the level of grain defect light flecks and spots on cattle hides. (8/178)

The occurrence of hide damage light flecks and spots was determined on tanned hides from 28 herds during a period of 8 to 12 months. Light flecks and spots are described as small areas of grain loss up to 3 mm in diameter that are seen on dyed crust cattle leather. Damage was found on 75.8% of all hides. The neck and shoulders were the anatomical region with the highest prevalence of damage. Sixty-eight per cent of all hides had light flecks and spots in this region. The forelimbs and dewlap were the anatomical region with the second highest occurrence with a prevalence of 39.1%. This distribution corresponded to the known distribution of lice in cattle. No significant differences were observed in age, sex, prevalence of lice in the herd assessed in March or infestations with different lice species. The frequency of light flecks and spots varied significantly during the year. The frequency was highest in the late winter and early spring, decreased significantly during the summer and was lowest in the autumn. This variation supported the importance of lice in the development of light flecks and spots and suggested a relatively long healing period for the damages induced by lice.  (+info)

Head lice infestation, also known as pediculosis capitis and nits, is the infection of the head hair and scalp by the head louse (Pediculus humanus capitis). Itching from lice bites is common. During a persons first infection, the itch may not develop for up to six weeks. If a person is infected again, symptoms may begin much more quickly. The itch may cause problems with sleeping. Generally, however, it is not a serious condition. While head lice appear to spread some other diseases in Africa, they do not appear to do so in Europe or North America. Head lice are spread by direct contact with the hair of someone who is infected. The cause of head lice infestations are not related to cleanliness. Other animals, such as cats and dogs, do not play a role in transmission. Head lice feed only on human blood and are only able to survive on human head hair. When adults, they are about 2 to 3 mm long. When not attached to a human, they are unable to live beyond three days. Humans can also become ...

Pediculosis is an infestation of lice (blood-feeding ectoparasitic insects of the order Phthiraptera). The condition can occur in almost any species of warm-blooded animal (i.e. mammals and birds), including humans. Although pediculosis in humans may properly refer to lice infestation of any part of the body, the term is sometimes used loosely to refer to pediculosis capitis, the infestation of the human head with the specific head louse. Pediculosis may be divided into the following types: Pediculosis capitis (Head lice infestation) Pediculosis corporis (Pediculosis vestimenti, Vagabonds disease) Pediculosis pubis (Crabs) Play media Head-lice infestation is most frequent on children aged 3-10 and their families. Approximately 3% of school children in the United States contract head lice.[clarification needed] Females are more frequently infested than males. Those of African descent rarely suffer infestation due to differences in hair texture. Head lice are spread through direct head-to-head ...
The biggest problem in controlling head lice infestations is convincing parents, teachers and even school administrators that head lice infestations are not caused by filthy conditions. For example, one school principal denied the existence of a head lice infestation in his school, even though the wife of a University of Florida graduate student, who was a teacher at that school, confirmed that such the problem existed. The principals denial of the problem, and his refusal for our staff to cooperate with his school nurse, prevented us from controlling the infestation and preventing its recurrence. In addition, lack of knowledge of the biology and ecology of the head louse resulted in the school administrator calling in the school district-contracted, pest control company and demanding that its personnel spray the rugs for control of the head louse infestation. Since head lice occur only on the bodies of children, the pest control company was powerless to do anything to control the infestation. ...
Head lice infestation (Pediculosis) is one of the most important health challenges particularly in primary school-aged children. It is often present among 6-11-year-old students in various tropical and temperate regions of the world. The aim of this study was to examine epidemiologic indices and comparative analysis of two pyrethroid-based and one non-chemical pediculicide products on head lice treatment of primary school girls in a rural setting of Fars province, south Iran, as part of a randomized controlled assessor blind trial. Before treatment, infested students were screened using plastic detection combs to find live head lice. Three independent parallel groups, each with about 25 participants (#77) were eventually twice with a week apart treated with either 1% permethrin, 0.2% parasidose (d-phenothrin) or 4% dimeticone lotion preparations. In each case, a questionnaire form was completed on epidemiologic factors. Data were registered after a fortnight from primary scalp treatment and re
If you have been infested with head lice, you must learn the 3 key words: Treat, Check and Tell.. It is important that you get treated right away, and preferably the same day, to prevent you infest others. Treatment can either be a combing method or product treatment or a combination of both. In the weeks after the treatment, it is also very important that you check on a regular basis for live head lice with a good lice comb, as during this period the risk of re-infestation is very high. Liceworld has created a small poster which you can download to e.g. the kindergarten, school or other parents. The sooner you inform your surroundings about the head lice infestation, the better odds for others to check and treat their children and family members. This is the only way to eradicate head lice effectively.. ...

BERLIN - Oral ivermectin proved superior to conventional therapy with malathion lotion for the treatment of difficult to eradicate head lice infestations in a large multinational randomized trial. The number needed to treat-that is, the number of patients who needed to be treated with two doses of oral ivermectin 1 week apart instead of two applications of topical malathion in order for one additional patient to become louse-free-was 9.8, Dr. Olivier Chosidow reported at the annual congress of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology. Our randomized trial suggests strongly that ivermectin could be valuable, at least in patients whove previously failed standard therapy because their head lice arent sensitive enough to local insecticides, said Dr. Chosidow of the University of Paris. He reported on 812 patients with head lice infestation in 376 randomized households. All participants were at least 2 years old and weighed at least 15 kg. At enrollment, all had live head lice detected ...

Head Louse Eggs is also called as nits. Head lice live for about three weeks. Head lice are spread easily over the head. Louse eggs are present on the hair very close to the scalp. A female can have 50 to 150 eggs in its life cycle but it lay up 100 eggs in 30 days. These eggs are tiny white beads and oval. They are kept nice and warm. An egg normally undergoes a 7-9 day incubation before hatching as a baby nymph. Hatched eggs are nearly transparent. Laid eggs are usually within 1.5 cm of the scalp. Nits are always the same shape. They are never irregular, encircling the hair. Eggs are hatch are usually located within 1/4 inch of the scalp. The size of egg is 0.8mm by 0.3mm. Head lice is usually 2 to 4mm. Eggs are the first sign of a head lice infestation. Head louse eggs are present on the back side of ear and neckline. ...
What you need to know about head lice. What is head lice?. Head lice are tiny insects that live on the scalp where they lay their eggs. They have three stages: the egg (nit), the nymph and the adult. Head lice do not spread diseases and cannot be spread between animals or pets and humans, only through direct contact between people.. Head lice spread easily, especially where people are in close contact. They are very common among school-aged children or children attending child care, where they spread through direct hair-to-hair contact or directly by sharing things like hats, combs, hairbrushes or headphones.. One of the first signs of head lice is an itchy scalp. However, children can have head lice for several weeks with no symptoms. If you think your child has head lice, check their hair for nits right away, then again after one week and after two weeks. ...

School children can be quick to make fun of any perceived difference among them and having head lice is no exception. Some get the idea from their parents that if a child in their class has head lice, the child and his or her family are somehow at fault. This can lead to the bullying of children with head lice.. October is National Bullying Prevention month, and Suzanne McCutchan, owner of Lice Clinics of America® - Evansville, wants to stop the shaming and blaming that often takes place surrounding head lice.. Head lice are no ones fault, Suzanne said. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Academy of Pediatricians, the National Association of School Nurses, and just about every other medical authority in the world are all in agreement on this. Understanding the facts about how head lice spread can help foster understanding and support for families, rather than causing blame and fault-finding..

Poultry lice are wingless, straw-colored insects that feed on dry skin scales, scabs, and feathers. A poultry louse spends its entire life on its bird host; if it falls off the bird, it wont survive long in the environment - maybe a few days. Lice know what they like, and poultry lice like chickens, not people or pets. If a poultry louse climbs on you, it wont stay long.. Louse infestations are a drag, especially for young chickens, making them jumpy and slow to grow. Fertility and egg production declines for infested adults. The plumage of lousy birds looks patchy and moth-eaten.. Female lice lay their eggs (nits) in clumps on feather shafts. Inspect birds at least twice a month, spreading the feathers in the vent, breast, and thigh areas, looking for nit clumps or pale, scurrying insects. Fall and winter are when most louse infestations are common.. ...
The FDA has approved a new prescription medication for the treatment of head lice (Pediculosis capitis) infestation. Benzyl Alcohol Lotion, 5%, received full market approval as a prescription medication, for use in patients 6 months of age and older.

Lice may cause obvious signs and symptoms to the person who has an infestation. However, this may not be as obvious to others. In fact you may find it difficult to spot a lice infestation on a friend, family member, class mate or work colleague. Furthermore a lice infestation is not entirely a matter of personal hygiene. A person who appears unclean or has a bad body odor is not definitely going to have or carry lice.. On the other hand, good personal hygiene can help reduce the spread of lice. Close contact can easily spread the infestation from one person to another, be it through direct contact or sharing personal items. Therefore lice infestation cannot be entirely prevented just by avoiding contact with a person who has lice. However, prompt and effective treatment will quickly eradicate the infestation.. It is important to note that these is not only one type of louse that affects humans. Different lice species may infesta the head, body or pubic region. Therefore a person who has a lice ...
It took a biologist researching the evolution of parasites to discover that head lice can be completely eradicated with desiccation, or drying them out. Dr. Dale Clayton, a biology professor at the University of Utah, found that lice on birds in more arid climates had a harder time surviving than those on birds in more humid climates. When his own children suffered from a bout of head lice and lice shampoos had little effect, he decided to test a theory and see if drying the head lice with heated air would eradicate them.. Dr. Clayton and his team of student scientists created the AirAllé® (pronounced air-uh-LAY), a device that concentrates heated air near the scalp-without burning it-where head lice prefer to hang out and lay their eggs. After about 30 minutes, the device can completely eliminate all head lice and their eggs (nits), with less than a one percent chance of recurrence. Its the only head lice treatment available that is guaranteed to get rid of everything-lice and their ...
Treatment of P humanis var capitisinfestation has been a long-term problem for clinicians and parents.1 The management is complicated by increasing resistance to the presently approved antipediculosis agents.6-10 Drug resistance has also increased the risk of infestation among family members. HLI inflicts a negative social stigma on the children and their parents or caretakers. Because of parental and caretakers frustration with resistant head lice, dangerous methods of treating HLI (use of kerosene, insecticides, gasoline, and head shaving) may be used. In this trial, combination therapy had less recurrences of HLI compared with treatment with either 1% PER or TMP/SMX alone. This study suggests an alternative therapy in the management of HLI where treatment failure or suspected lice-related resistance exists.. The mechanism by which permethrin and TMP/SMX kills lice differs from each other. Permethrin is a synthetic compound derived from pyrethrin and acts on the nerve cell membranes of the ...

Head lice infestation is common, and mainly affects children of primary school age.1 Treatments include conventional chemical insecticides; fine tooth louse combs; and fluid preparations that work by a physical rather than chemical mode of action.1 However, each of these fails to eradicate head lice in some patients.1 Other disadvantages include the long contact time required for certain preparations (e.g. 8 hours) and the time commitment for combing regimens. Isopropyl myristate 50% in cyclomethicone solution (Full Marks Solution - SSL International) is a new fluid treatment with a physical mode of action that uses a 10-minute contact time.2 Here, we consider this product in the context of updating advice we gave in 2007 on treatments for head lice.. ...

The only condition more prevalent in children than head lice is the common cold. Why are head lice infestation so common? Like colds and flu, kids usually pick
Humans host three different kinds of lice: head lice, body lice, and pubic lice. Lice infestations can be controlled with lice combs, and medicated shampoos or washes.[1]. Sucking lice are small wingless insects ranging from 0.5 to 5 mm (0.02 to 0.20 in) in length. They have narrow heads and oval, flattened bodies. They have no ocelli, and their compound eyes are reduced in size or absent. Their antennae are short with three to five segments, and their mouth parts, which are retractable into their head, are adapted for piercing and sucking.[2] There is a cibarial pump at the start of the gut; it is powered by muscles attached to the inside of the cuticle of the head. The mouthparts consist of a proboscis which is toothed, and a set of stylets arranged in a cylinder inside the proboscis, containing a salivary canal (ventrally) and a food canal (dorsally).[3] The thoracic segments are fused, the abdominal segments are separate, and there is a single large claw at the tip of each of the six ...
COLDWATER Head lice (Pediculosis humanus capitis) have been plaguing people for centuries. It was once accepted as a common occurrence in society. However, in recent years head lice has been known for causing mass panic among parents of school-aged children in the United States.According to the Michigan head lice manual published in 2004 which was compiled by members of a workgroup consisting of school nurses, local public health officials, entomologists, and epidemiologists,
Lice (Pediculosis) Symptoms and Treatments in Dogs - Lice are not common in dogs. There are two species of lice biting lice, which feed on skin scales, and sucking lice, which feed on the dogs blood and can cause severe protein deficiency and anemia due to blood loss. Adult lice are wingless, pale-colored insects about 2 - 3 millimeters long.
Im a public health nurse and I have a weekly public radio program, Healthstyles, in New York City. Fifteen years ago, when my kids were preschoolers, there was a local outbreak of head lice, and parents kept asking me to do a show about it. I thought it was a boring topic. They persisted and I did the show.. During that radio show I invited listeners to call in; in radio-speak, the board lit up. A mom called and said shed applied an OTC shampoo for head lice, in three separate applications, to her six-year-old sons head, but he still had nits and live lice-what should she do? A father reported that hed applied another OTC shampoo for head lice to his nine-year-old daughters head, wrapped her head in plastic wrap, and let her sleep through the night that way; he asked, Was that dangerous to do? Producing this segment opened my eyes to how little we knew about the health effects of such treatments on children. It was a nursing Aha! moment: head lice werent just a big nuisance, they ...

Reduce the risk of catching head lice by avoiding both direct head-to-head contact and sharing of clothing or items such as hats, hair ribbons, brushes, towels, etc.. Students with live head lice do not need to be sent home early from school. No-nit policies that require a child to be free of nits before they can return to school should be discontinued. Instead, a student should finish the school day, receive appropriate treatment, and then return to school. No healthy child should be excluded from or allowed to miss school time because of head lice.. Please call your childs school regarding their policy for head lice.. ...
Many pediculicides are available to control head lice. They are formulated as creams, shampoos, and lotions. Some require prescriptions, which generally are available from doctors. Many school nurses have an open prescription for lice medicine. Over the counter pediculicides can be just as effective as prescription pediculicides (e.g. the permethrin based product, Nix, which kills eggs and offers two weeks residual protection). Follow directions. Consult a doctor before using the Kwell on infants or during pregnancy. Many pediculicides come with special combs for nit removal.. An person infested with head lice is treated by removing all clothing, then applying the pediculicide according to directions, then putting on clean clothes. Clothes, bedding, and other items contacted by the infested person within 48 hours should be washed in hot water with a detergent and dried in a clothes dryer. Alternate means of disinfesting articles include dry cleaning, isolation in a plastic bag for 10 days, or ...

Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Human head louse (Pediculus humanus capitis). The head louse (Pediculus humanus capitis) is an insect in the Order Psocodea (parasitic lice, formerly Order Phthiraptera/Pscocptera). Head lice are ectoparasites with humans as the only host. A head louse must feed on blood several times daily and resides close to the scalp to maintain its body temperature. Infestation with head lice is common and occurs worldwide, especially in children. Head lice are not the vectors of any known diseases. Only rare secondary infections occur from scratching the bites.

What do parents dread their children bringing home from school more than a bad report card? Pediculus humanus capitis, better known as head lice. These wingless insects, also called sucking lice, have parasitized humans for thousands of years and are now are common worldwide, infesting millions of school children every year. Head lice are entirely dependent on their hosts for their survival (there are no free-living stages), are found on the head and attach their eggs to the base of hair shafts. These parasites are surprisingly nimble, moving quickly among the hairs and can transfer quickly to a new host should the opportunity present itself. Head lice reproduce rapidly and treatment can be expensive and time consuming. Many common colloquialisms resulting from human parasitism of lice include nit-picking, going over with a fine-toothed comb, nitwit, and lousy ...

Head lice are small parasitic insects that thrive in human hair by feeding on tiny amounts of blood from the scalp. An estimated six to 12 million infestations occur in the U.S. annually. It is particularly common among pre-school and elementary school children. Head lice do not transmit any diseases, but they are very contagious and can be very itchy. They are characterized by the combination of small red bumps and tiny white specks (also known as eggs or nits) on the bottom of hair closest to the skin (less than a quarter-inch from the scalp).. Head lice are visible to the naked eye. The eggs look like yellow, tan or brown dots on a hair. Live lice can also be seen crawling on the scalp. When eggs hatch, they become nymphs (baby lice). Nymphs grow to adult lice within one or two weeks of hatching. An adult louse is about the size of a sesame seed. Lice feed on blood from the scalp several times a day. They can also survive up to two days off of the scalp.. Head lice are spread through ...
The mitochondrial (mt) genomes of animals typically consist of a single circular chromosome that is ∼16-kb long and has 37 genes. Our analyses of the sequence reads from the Human Body Louse Genome Project and the patterns of gel electrophoresis and Southern hybridization revealed a novel type of mt genome in the sucking louse, Pediculus humanus. Instead of having all mt genes on a single chromosome, the 37 mt genes of this louse are on 18 minicircular chromosomes. Each minicircular chromosome is 3-4 kb long and has one to three genes. Minicircular mt chromosomes are also present in the four other species of sucking lice that we investigated, but not in chewing lice nor in the Psocoptera, to which sucking lice are most closely related. We also report unequivocal evidence for recombination between minicircular mt chromosomes in P. humanus and for sequence variation in mt genes generated by recombination. The advantages of a fragmented mt genome, if any, are currently unknown. Fragmentation of mt genome
Pyrethroid resistance in human head louse populations is widespread in the United States and worldwide. We previously documented that the knockdown resistance of permethrin-resistant head louse populations is associated with the T929I and L932F (T917I and L920F in the numbering of the louse amino acid sequence) mutations in the voltage-sensitive sodium channel a-subunit gene. In order to identify additional sodium channel mutations potentially associated with knockdown resistance, we cloned and sequenced full-length cDNA fragments from insecticide-susceptible (Ecuador) and permethrin-resistant (Florida) head louse populations and from an insecticide-susceptible body louse population (Israel). Sequence comparisons of the complete open reading frames of the sodium channel genes identified one additional novel mutation (M815I), which was located in the IIS1-2 extracellular loopof the a-subunit, from the permethrin-resistant head louse population. Absolute conservation of the Met815 residue at the ...
Pediculus humanus is an obligate bloodsucking ectoparasite of human that includes two ecotypes, head louse and body louse, which differ slightly in morphology and biology, but have distinct ecologies. Phylogenetically, they are classified on six mitochondrial clades (A, B, C, D, E, and F), head louse encompasses the full genetic diversity of clades, while body louse belongs to clades A and D. Recent studies suggested that not only body louse, but also head louse can transmit disease, which warrants greater attention as a serious public health problem. The recent sequencing of body louse genome confirmed that P. humanus has the smallest genome of any hemimetabolous insect reported to date, and also revealed numerous interesting characteristics in the nuclear and mitochondrial genomes. The transcriptome analyses showed that body and head lice were almost genetically identical. Indeed, the phenotypic flexibility associated with the emergence of body lice, is probably a result of regulatory changes, perhaps

Head lice are specialized to live among the hair present on the human head and are exquisitely adapted to living mainly on the scalp and neck hairs of their human host. Lice present on other body parts covered by hair are not head lice but are either Pubic lice (Pthirus pubis) or Body lice (Pediculus humanus humanus).

This photograph depicted a dorsal view of a male body louse, Pediculus humanus var. corporis. Some of the external morphologic features displayed by members of the genus Pediculus include an elongated abdominal region without any processes, and three pairs of legs, all equal in length and width. The distal tip of the males abdomen is rounded, whereas, the females is concave.. Body lice are parasitic insects that live on the body, and in the clothing or bedding of infested humans. Infestation is common, found worldwide, and affects people of all races. Body lice infestations spread rapidly under crowded conditions where hygiene is poor, and there is frequent contact among people. Note the sensorial setae, or hairs that cover the louses body, which pick up, and transmit information to the insect about changes in its environment such as temperature, and chemical queues. The dark mass inside the abdomen is a previously ingested blood meal.. What do body lice look like?. There are three forms of ...
The human head louse is now mostly resistant to common insecticide treatments, say researchers in a recent article in the Journal of Medical Entomology.1 Pediculus humanus capitis is well known to cause itching and annoyance, particularly for school children around the world, leading it to be one of the most prevalent human parasitic infestations. Here in the US, widely available over-the-counter topical treatments like Nix or Rid have been relied upon for several decades to rid human head hair of the small dark colored insect. The active ingredient of most of those OTC insecticides are pyrethrins or synthetic pyrethroids, the latter including permethrin and phenothrin ...

Catherine Hill, an associate professor of entomology, with postdoctoral researchers Jason M. Meyer and Janice Pagel VanZee, and former undergraduate student Emily Krause contributed to the overall genome-mapping effort led by the University of Illinois and published online Monday (June 21) in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The body louse genome is the smallest known genome of any insect, said University of Illinois entomology professor Barry Pittendrigh, who led the drive to fund the project and coordinated the international team of scientists who analyzed the sequence.. Purdue researchers described G protein-coupled receptors, responsible for neurological signaling and vision of the body louse (Pediculus humanus humanus).. Because theyre a part of the nervous system function, these receptors make great targets for new insecticides, Hill said.. The body louse is a close relative of the head louse, better known because of its association with schoolchildren. Both are ...
In 1949 when Hopkins reviewed the data then known about Mallophaga found on mammals, he recognised 288 species and subspecies of Mallophaga. Since then, 179 new species and subsepcies of Mallophaga have been described, for a total of 467 valid species and subspecies. There are at least 4,268 species of living mammal, and there is evidence that at least 3,400 species of mammals do not normally have mallophaga. With better collecting, Mallophaga may be founnd on 512 species of mammals for which no current data exist. Mallophaga have now been recorded from 356 species of mammals. Because Mallophaga are obligatory parasites, their distribution is limited to that of their hosts. Most Mallophaga are host specific; some are less restricted in host selection, and a few are host subspecific. These variations in host specificity often aid mammologists in their taxonomisc studies of certain groups of mammals. Ten examples of host specificity and mammal relationships are discussed in detail. Mallophaga ...
Please direct all inquiries about the device to [email protected] Since the year 2000, our lab has been involved in the development of a safe, effective, non-chemical treatment for head lice, Pediculus humanus. These pesky critters are a serious concern of parents and teachers alike. One in four K-6 kids in the United States gets head lice at some point, leading to missed school and work by parents who must stay home trying to deal with the problem. Head lice have become far more common in recent years because they have evolved resistance to many of the popular head lice shampoos. And the problem continues to grow exponentially. In 2004, with funding from the Utah Centers of Excellence program, we established the Center for Alternate Strategies of Parasite Removal (CASPeR). The sole purpose of the center was to develop a device capable of controlling head lice with carefully controlled and directed warm air. This machine, which we named the LouseBuster, has proven to be a major success. ...
Head lice infection is common in the community; the peak age for infection is 7-8 years. When two heads are touching for a minute or more, the lice climb rapidly through the hair from one head to another. They dont jump, fly or swim and they arent fussy about clean or dirty hair.. The infection can cause anxiety among parents, children and teachers. This sometimes leads to inappropriate actions for example, overuse of treatments or use of treatments which are not shown to be effective.. Parents have the primary responsibility to identify and treat head lice infection in the family. However, parents need to be supported with clear and consistent information by health and education professionals.

Head lice are tiny greyish coloured insects about the size of a sesame seed. They dont have wings and live their lives crawling around in human hair, feeding on blood from the scalp; they live for about forty days. Head lice are parasites and dont live anywhere else other than on the human head.
What are Head Lice?. Lice are parasites, little insects that live only on human scalp and hair. Away from the scalp, lice can survive only 1 - 2 days. Head lice are harmless, however may cause extreme itching. The female louse attaches approximately 60 - 150 eggs (nits) to the hair shaft near the scalp with a cement-like substance. The average life span of each louse if untreated is 30 days.. How are they spread?. Head lice are spread by direct contact with an infested person or indirectly by sharing clothing, bedding, combs, brushes, upholstered furniture in home and car etc. Lice cannot jump or fly; they are only capable of crawling. Lice and nits are responsible for transmission from one person to another.. Where are they found?. Nits (eggs) are most commonly detected at the crown of the head, behind the ears and at the nap of the neck. Nits firmly attach to the hair shaft, close to the scalp and are very difficult to remove due to the cement like substance they produce. Dandruff, hair sprays ...
Pediculicides. Over-the-counter (OTC) pediculicides are used to treat head-lice infestation. While prescription products and home remedies may also be used for the treatment of head lice, OTC pediculicides are more effective, cheaper and safer than any available alternatives. Annual U.S. sales of OTC pediculicides total over $150 million.. The market for OTC pediculicides is highly concentrated. Pfizer and Warner are the two leading suppliers of OTC pediculicides in the United States, with approximately 30 percent of the market each. Thus, as a result of the merger, Pfizer would have a 60 percent share of the market. There are significant barriers to entry and expansion into this market. In order to enter the market, a firm must incur substantial sunk costs to research, develop, manufacture and sell OTC pediculicides. Existing private label and small branded suppliers of pediculicides are not likely to effectively reposition themselves in order to counteract a post-merger price increase ...

Because topical compounds based on insecticidal chemicals are the mainstay of head lice treatment, but resistance is increasing, alternatives, such as herbs and oils are being sold to treat head lice. To test a commercial shampoo based on seed extract of Azadirachta indica (neem tree) for its in vitro effect, head lice (n=17) were collected from school children in Australia and immersed in Wash-Away LouseTM shampoo (Alpha-Biocare GmbH, Germany). Vitality was evaluated for more than 3 h by examination under a dissecting microscope. Positive and negative controls were a commercially available head lice treatment containing permethrin 1% (n=19) and no treatment (n=14). All lice treated with the neem shampoo did not show any vital signs from the initial examination after immersion at 5-30 min; after 3 h, only a single louse showed minor signs of life, indicated by gut movements, a mortality of 94%. In the permethrin group, mortality was 20% at 5 min, 50% at 15 min, and 74% after 3 h. All 14 head lice of the

Head Lice: Head lice have been co-existing with us since ancient times. Head lice are not a health hazard or a sign of poor hygiene and are not the cause of any disease. In the United States, preschool and elementary school students are the most common age groups who get head lice. Our goal is to help parents recognize head lice in their students so they can take action quickly. Your school nurse can provide information about the diagnosis and treatment options for families so children can return to school immediately. ...

The main results of the examination of cytological preparations of the testes of the horse-louse (Haematopinus asini), of the dog-louse (Lignognathus piliferus), and of Haematopinus consobrinus may be summarized briefly.. 1. In all main points the spermatogenesis of these three species of louse agrees with that described for Pediculus corporis and Pediculus capitis by the late Professor Doncaster and the present author. Miss Foots account of the spermatogenesis of Pediculus vestimenti is criticized.. 2. In the elongating spermatid of the horse-louse, the nucleolus appears for a short period as a chromatic mass adhering to the nuclear membrane, projecting partly in and partly out of the nucleus.. 3. The acroblast of the horse-louse is usually a double body consisting of two bun-shaped halves which are sometimes of equal size, and which are separated with flat sides together by a transparent achromatic layer. The acroblast exists as such during the single spermatocyte division, and finally ...

Pediculus corporis after feeding. First of all typhus should not be confused with typhoid, they are two entirely different things. Also, there are quite a few types of typhus in circulation, this article deals with the most serious, epidemic typhus which is spread by the body louse - Pediculus corporis.. This little louse is closely related to the head lice- Pediculus capitus but unlike its cousin it lives in clothing and moves onto the human to feed, returning to clothing after feeding. It is also different in that it can spread bacterial infection which the head louse cannot.. The body louse seems to appear out of nowhere in troubled times, wars, economic crises, any situation that causes a return to the unsanitary conditions of yesteryear. Scientists have tried for years to find out how they suddenly appear during hard times, what can cause such a huge surge in these tiny six-legged critters that an epidemic is the result, well now they know. They are here all the time.. History books will ...

Lindane is an organochlorine pesticide found in certain prescription-only shampoos and topical lotions used to treat pediculosis (i.e., lice infestation) and scabies; lindane has been associated with human neurologic toxicity. In 2004, CDC was alerted to cases of illness caused by unintentional ingestion of lindane by persons mistaking the product for a liquid oral medication (e.g., cough syrup).
Head lice are very small insects and are commonly found on young children. They can cause itching, are very contagious and are spread by direct contact. They must be treated to prevent the spread to others.
Geomydoecus ewingi is a relatively well-known chewing louse that parasitizes the pocket gopher Geomys breviceps in the rodent family Geomyidae. Pocket gophers have been documented to exhibit long-term associations with their parasites, specifically lice. The flightless and obligate nature of the lice coupled with few opportunities to colonize new hosts has helped to make them model organisms for cospeciation studies. A main objective of my research was to determine the microevolutionary processes driving macroevolutionary patterns, such as cospeciation, in gopher-louse assemblages. Through the use microsatellite data, a series of population genetic analyses were conducted on lice parasitizing G. breviceps to better understand the population structure of lice among host individuals and across localities. With no previous microsatellite data available, I report 17 novel microsatellite loci in the parasitic chewing louse G. ewingi. Population genetic analyses infer significant structure among ...

Head lice are harmless and body lice spread disease, yet they have the same genes - the difference is all in the way they splice them together
The April-June report shows that sea lice numbers have generally remained low and that some improvements in numbers can be seen when comparing with the January-March 2014 report.. However, the Loch Long and Croe region, which is home to three active farms, has seen an increase in lice numbers from average numbers of 1.74 in April to 7.10 in June and Skye and Small Isles North region an increase from 2.33 to 7.95 over the same period.. In general, across all regions, sea lice numbers increased slightly from April to June 2014. Concerned over the effect of sea lice on wild salmon, the Scottish Salmon and Trout Association (SS&TA) stated that some farms are breaching industry sea-lice standards which may threaten the survival of migrating young wild salmon and sea-trout.. Looking specifically at the Special Area for Conservation on the Little Gruinard River in the Wester Ross region, Guy Linley-Adams, Solicitor to the SS&TA Aquaculture Campaign, said that sea lice have been over the threshold and ...
