Candidate parasitic diseases. (1/422)

This paper discusses five parasitic diseases: American trypanosomiasis (Chagas disease), dracunculiasis, lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis and schistosomiasis. The available technology and health infrastructures in developing countries permit the eradication of dracunculiasis and the elimination of lymphatic filariasis due to Wuchereria bancrofti. Blindness due to onchocerciasis and transmission of this disease will be prevented in eleven West African countries; transmission of Chagas disease will be interrupted. A well-coordinated international effort is required to ensure that scarce resources are not wasted, efforts are not duplicated, and planned national programmes are well supported.  (+info)

Preventing zoonotic diseases in immunocompromised persons: the role of physicians and veterinarians. (2/422)

We surveyed physicians and veterinarians in Wisconsin about the risk for and prevention of zoonotic diseases in immunocompromised persons. We found that physicians and veterinarians hold significantly different views about the risks posed by certain infectious agents and species of animals and communicate very little about zoonotic issues; moreover, physicians believe that veterinarians should be involved in many aspects of zoonotic disease prevention, including patient education.  (+info)

NK cells and apoptosis. (3/422)

Natural killer (NK) cells are a cell of the innate immune system that play an important role in the early response to viral infections and tumours. Natural killer cells are cytolytic, and secrete cytokines that influence the developing antigen-specific immune response. In the present article the NK cell surface molecules regulating effector function, the NK cell effector mechanisms involved in apoptosis, and the role of NK cell effector mechanisms in immune responses are reviewed.  (+info)

Glycosaminoglycan-binding microbial proteins in tissue adhesion and invasion: key events in microbial pathogenicity. (4/422)

Glycosaminoglycans such as heparin, heparan sulphate and dermatan sulphate, are distributed widely in the human body. Several glycosaminoglycans form part of the extracellular matrix and heparan sulphate is expressed on all eukaryotic surfaces. The identification of specific binding to different glycosaminoglycan molecules by bacteria (e.g., Helicobacter pylori, Bordetella pertussis and Chlamydia trachomatis), viruses (e.g., herpes simplex and dengue virus), and protozoa (e.g., Plasmodium and Leishmania), is therefore of great interest. Expression of glycosaminoglycan-binding proteins depends on growth and culture conditions in bacteria, and differs in various phases of parasite development. Glycosaminoglycan-binding microbial proteins may mediate adhesion of microbes to eukaryotic cells, which may be a primary mechanism in mucosal infections, and are also involved in secondary effects such as adhesion to cerebral endothelia in cerebral malaria or to synovial membranes in arthritis caused by Borrelia burgdorferi. It has been suggested that they may enhance intracellular survival in macrophages. Microbial binding of heparin may interfere with heparin-dependent growth factors. Whether or not glycosaminoglycan-binding proteins mediate invasion of epithelial cells is a matter of controversy. Heparin and other glycosaminoglycans may have potential uses as therapeutic agents in microbial infections and could form part of future vaccines against such infections.  (+info)

Ocular linguatuliasis in Ecuador: case report and morphometric study of the larva of Linguatula serrata. (5/422)

Linguatula serrata is a pentastomid, a cosmopolitan parasite belonging to the Phylum Pentastomida. Humans may act as an intermediate or accidental definitive host of this parasite, manifesting the nasopharyngeal or visceral form, with the latter having been described more frequently. The occurrence of ocular linguatuliasis is extremely rare, but it has been reported in the United States and Israel. The objective of the present paper was to report the first case of ocular linguatuliasis in Ecuador and to extend the morphologic study of L. serrata by morphometric analysis. The patient studied was a 34-year old woman from Guayaquil, Ecuador who complained of ocular pain with conjunctivitis and visual difficulties of two-months duration. Biomicroscopic examination revealed a mobile body in the anterior chamber of the eye. The mobile body was surgically removed. The specimen was fixed in alcohol, cleared using the technique of Loos, stained with acetic carmine, and mounted on balsam between a slide and a coverslip. It was observed with stereoscopic and common light microscopes in combination with an automatic system for image analysis and processing. The morphologic and morphometric characteristics corresponded to the third-instar larval form of L. serrata. To our knowledge, ocular linguatuliasis has not been previously described in South America, with this being the first report for Ecuador and South America. The present study shows that computer morphometry can adequately contribute both to the morphologic study and to the systematic classification of Pentastomids, and L. serrata in particular.  (+info)

Assessing morbidity in the paediatric community. (6/422)

INTRODUCTION: Morbidity information is easily available from medical records but its scope is limited to the population attended by the health services. Information on the prevalence of diseases requires community surveys, which are not always feasible. These two sources of information represent two alternative assessments of disease occurrence, namely demand morbidity and perceived morbidity. The present study was conceived so as to elicit a potential relationship between them so that the former could be used in the absence of the latter. METHODS: A community of 13,365 families on the outskirts of S. Paulo, Brazil, was studied during the period from 15/Nov/1994 to 15/Jan/1995. Data regarding children less than 5 years old were collected from a household survey and from the 2 basic health units in the area. Prevalence of diseases was ascertained from perceived morbidity and compared to estimates computed from demand morbidity. RESULTS: Data analysis distinguished 2 age groups, infants less than 1 year old and children 1 to less than 5. The most important groups of diseases were respiratory diseases, diarrhoea, skin problems and infectious & parasitical diseases. Basic health units presented a better coverage for infants. Though disease frequencies were not different within or outside these units, a better coverage was found for diarrhoea and infectious & parasitical diseases in the infant group, and for diarrhoea in the older age group. Equivalence between the two types of morbidity was found to be limited to the infant group and concerned only the best covered diseases. The odds of a disease being seen at the health service should be of at least 4:10 to ensure this equivalence. CONCLUSION: It was concluded that, provided that health service coverage is good, demand morbidity can be taken as a reliable estimate of community morbidity.  (+info)

Anaemia and iron deficiency disease in children. (7/422)

Iron deficiency is the single most common nutritional disorder world-wide and the main cause of anaemia in infancy, childhood and pregnancy. It is prevalent in most of the developing world and it is probably the only nutritional deficiency of consideration in industrialised countries. In the developing world the prevalence of iron deficiency is high, and is due mainly to a low intake of bioavailable iron. However, in this setting, iron deficiency often co-exists with other conditions such as, malnutrition, vitamin A deficiency, folate deficiency, and infection. In tropical regions, parasitic infestation and haemoglobinopathies are also a common cause of anaemia. In the developed world iron deficiency is mainly a single nutritional problem. The conditions previously mentioned might contribute to the development of iron deficiency or they present difficulties in the laboratory diagnosis of iron deficiency.  (+info)

Economic evaluation of parasitic diseases: a critique of the internal and external validity of published studies. (8/422)

It was estimated that in 1990, major parasitic diseases accounted for 11.7% of the disease burden from communicable disease. As advances in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of parasitic diseases are made and implemented, there is a growing economic literature to help decision-makers choose the most efficient control method. The aim of this paper is to identify, describe and analyse the available published data on the efficiency of control strategies against parasitic diseases. Internal validity is assessed through the quality of economic evaluations over time using a series of standard questions, and external validity is assessed in terms of the potential to extrapolate results to other settings. This leads to a discussion of the legitimacy and feasibility of pooling data or results from studies for priority setting in the health sector, resulting in three recommendations: to increase the coverage of economic evaluations for parasitic diseases and types of interventions; to improve the internal validity of studies through guidelines and review procedures; and to explore the external validity of research results by examining their predictive validity across settings.  (+info)

A parasitic disease, also known as parasitosis, is an infectious disease caused or transmitted by a parasite. Many parasites do not cause diseases. Parasitic diseases can affect practically all living organisms, including plants and mammals. The study of parasitic diseases is called parasitology. Some parasites like Toxoplasma gondii and Plasmodium spp. can cause disease directly, but other organisms can cause disease by the toxins that they produce. Although organisms such as bacteria function as parasites, the usage of the term parasitic disease is usually more restricted. The three main types of organisms causing these conditions are protozoa (causing protozoan infection), helminths (helminthiasis), and ectoparasites. Protozoa and helminths are usually endoparasites (usually living inside the body of the host), while ectoparasites usually live on the surface of the host. Occasionally the definition of parasitic disease is restricted to diseases due to endoparasites. Symptoms of parasites ...
Parasitic infections are common type of infections caused by parasites which enter or invade the human body and use it to live on. Parasites get the food from the host and can cause disease in humans. People learnt how to treat some parasitic diseases. Some diseases caused by parasites have no cure at all.. Parasitic infections are more common in countryside areas than in cities. The infections from other regions can be passed from travelers or immigrants.

N2 - Purpose of review: An inverse relationship between resistance to certain parasitic diseases and measures of atopy and asthma has long been observed. A possible explanation is that genetic determinants which confer protection against detrimental worm burdens are the same determinants involved in atopic asthma. The focus of this review is to consider the potential candidate genes that have been elucidated as part of molecular, genomic and genetic studies of parasite biology, host-parasite interactions and classic genetic epidemiology studies on parasitic disease and allergic asthma. Recent findings: Comparative studies of the Plasmodium and Schistosoma spp. genomes have revealed a number of proteins that are homologous to humans. A number of linkage ...

As Jeanne noted in her wonderful last post, this is a stressful time of year. Were told (and, for some reason, we believe) that were supposed to maintain a big smile full of magical holiday cheer while we host a delicious dinner for friends and family, bake fattening cookies for the office party, buy the perfect gift for the dog groomer, play Santa to our kids… Wait a second! I cant do all that! I mean, I dont have kids!. Why dont you have kids? a woman I had just met asked me recently. I cant have them due to severe endometriosis, I replied tersely. Youd think Id be used to this now, I thought to myself. But I never get used to that question. I also never get used to the fact that people with children sometimes assume my schedule is more flexible than theirs, or the fact that people who dont know the real story probably think my husband of seven years and I are waiting for some inconceivable (pun intended) deadline to start trying, or the fact that my friends with children must ...
Needless to say, I am anxious to resume treatment for the sleep apnea since I dont wish to increase my odds of having cardiovascular trouble. Ive tried running the CPAP machine when Im not wearing it to flush out the plastic tubing but Im not sure how much good that has done, if the tubing is causing symptoms. I washed the tubing with distilled water, as directed, before using it. Other than allowing it to air out over time, I dont really know how I can get it to out-gas more quickly. Hopefully, the fatigue is from the migraines and not the CPAP tubing and I will be able to resume wearing my CPAP headgear soon. My husband reports my snoring had stopped when I was using CPAP. According to the doctor who ordered the sleep study that diagnosed the sleep apnea, treating that should help the symptoms of all of my illnesses (since its not healthy to stop breathing throughout the night). The sleep disorder clinic had told me when I was diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea that they recorded ...
Parasites are living things that use other living things - like your body - for food and a place to live. You can get them from contaminated food or water, a bug bite, or sexual contact. Some parasitic diseases are easily treated and some are not.. Parasites range in size from tiny, one-celled organisms called protozoa to worms that can be seen with the naked eye. Some parasitic diseases occur in the United States. Contaminated water supplies can lead to Giardia infections. Cats can transmit toxoplasmosis, which is dangerous for pregnant women.

Published December 15 2014. Its quite common for people with thyroid and autoimmune thyroid conditions to have infections. There are bacterial infections such as H. Pylori, fungal infections such as Candida, and viral infections which include Epstein Barr and Cytomegalovirus. Some people also have parasitic infections, and this can potentially cause or contribute to their condition. In this article Ill discuss some of the more common parasites people become infected with, some of the methods of testing for parasites, and natural treatment methods to help eradicate parasites.. Before I discuss some of the common parasites, you might be wondering what some of the symptoms of parasitic infections are. Many people assume that having a parasitic infection will always cause symptoms such as bloating, stomach pain, diarrhea, etc. Although sometimes people with parasitic infections will experience these symptoms, this isnt the case with everyone. In fact, sometimes people can have parasites for ...

Suppression of the human immune system results in an increase in susceptibility to infection by various infectious agents. Conditions such as AIDS, organ transplantation and chronic renal insufficiency (CRI) are the most important cause of insufficient immune response against infections. Long term renal disorders result in uremia, which can suppress human immune system. Parasitic infections are one of the most important factors indicating the public health problems of the societies. These infections can be more hostile and life threatening in susceptible individuals than in the normal people. In these patients some parasitic infections such as blastocystiosis, cryptosporidiosis and toxoplasmosis have been reported to be more prevalent. This review aimed to give an overview about parasitic infections in patients with renal disorders.. ...

Both diabetes and tubeculosis (TB) are global health problems though diabetes as a risk factor for TB receives little attention. As Moore-Gillon discusses in his editorial to the paper by Walker and Unwin, the number of cases of TB continues to rise and co-existing conditions such a diabetes may play a part in progression of infection or reactivation. Walker and Unwin have estimated the proportion of incident cases of pulmonary TB attributable to diabetes in different ethnic groups in England. The results show that around 11% of cases of TB may be attributable to diabetes and over half will be in people of Asian origin. In black and white subjects 8% of cases of TB were attributable to diabetes. Moore-Gillon warns that we are confronted with an explosive and apparently inexorable rise in the prevalence of diabetes particularly in ethnic minority populations. Thus the interaction between TB and diabetes is a major issue of global TB control and deserves more attention. See pages 571 and 578 ...

The Training Unit, a 35-foot bus, offers medical staff the ability to go though all aspects of a simulated patients case: from pre-procedure briefing to post-procedure evaluation, in a risk-free environment. The unit allows for case scenarios and the patient can even be programmed to have co-existing conditions - such as high blood pressure - that, just as in real-life cases, would need to be monitored. The unit enables physicians and staff to practice a procedure repeatedly in a short period of time, which helps them gain proficiency and skill so they are ready to help real patients ...

Scientists have discovered that drugs used to treat HIV may also one day become lifesaving drugs targeted at parasitic diseases such as leishmaniasis and malaria. According to new research published in The FASEB Journal, scientists have identified the target of action for some anti-HIV drugs with known abilities to kill serious pathogenic parasites. While scientists have long known that these HIV drugs can kill parasites, exactly how they work was previously unknown. Researchers discovered that a particular protein called Ddi 1 from Leishmania parasites is sensitive to anti-HIV inhibitors. This research could one day significantly change the treatment of parasitic diseases.

The Institute of Parasitology has a long and distinguished history from when it first opened its doors in 1932, under the directorship of the renowned Canadian Parasitologist T.W.M. Cameron (pictured at right), to the cutting edge science by its graduate students and professors under the current director, Timothy G. Geary. The Institute has always had two functions: graduate teaching and research, which are intimately related. The history of parasitology research in Canada is mirrored in the evolution of research and vision of the 8 directors who had led the Institute over the past 85 years. Research at the Institute of Parasitology centers upon how parasites interact with wild-life, domestic animals, and human hosts. In the early days, this research involved surveying the parasite fauna of Canada and determining the complex lifecycles of these organisms to gain a basic understanding of their structure and morphology. Later, in the 1960s and 70s, the focus was on understanding host-parasite

5. Anesthesia procedures listed in the CPT/HCPCS section are usually provided by the attending surgeon and are included in the global fee and are not separately billable. In certain instances, however, MAC provided by anesthesia personnel may be necessary for these procedures. This is true if there are one or more of the co-existing conditions present that are listed below under the ICD-10-CM code list. In this situation, the appropriate MAC modifier is QS, which should be billed along with the appropriate ICD-10-CM Code for the co-existing condition(s). Second the MAC modifier G8 can be used with the anesthesia services listed below and indicates that the surgical procedure is deep, complex, complicated or markedly invasive. These services include only procedures on the face (00100 and 00160); head, neck, and posterior trunk (00300); breast (00400), or genitalia (00920) and for access to the central venous circulation (00532). These CPT codes themselves do not differentiate complexity. The MAC ...
Doctors Botero and Restrepo have produced a modern textbook of parasitology in Spanish which may finally satisfy the longstanding needs of a significant sector of the population of Latin America, provided that the usual poor distribution of this type of monograph is overcome. This handsome paperbound book has many superb black and white photographs and a generous assortment of color illustrations financed by several pharmaceutical companies. The authors have departed from tradition by grouping chapters according to parasitic diseases rather than by parasite genera. There is no obvious advantage in this unusual approach and the authors offer no explanation for their innovation. The book begins with chapters on general concepts in parasitology; intestinal and genital parasitic diseases produced by protozoa; intestinal parasitic diseases due to helminths; tissular parasitic diseases induced by helminths; blood and tissular parasitosis induced by protozoa; arthropods of medical importance; and laboratory

IIIBSc, BSc Hons, MSc, PhD; Malaria Research Lead Programme, Medical Research Council, Durban. To the Editor: Intestinal parasitic infections are among the most common chronic human infections in developing countries, particularly in the tropical and subtropical regions. The major groups of parasites include geohelminths, schistosomes and protozoans1 that are associated with malnutrition, iron deficiency anaemia, and impaired growth and cognitive development caused by decreased appetite, nutrient loss, malabsorption and decreased nutrient utilisation. However, intestinal parasitic infections receive little attention as most are asymptomatic and generally considered to be of less clinical significance than bacterial and viral infections.1. The geographical distribution of intestinal parasites has been shown to coincide with that of HIV/AIDS under conditions of poverty in most countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Interest has therefore increased in the pathological interaction between parasitic ...

Five academic institutions, two governmental institutes and two leading SMEs from Europe, Africa and Latin America are joining forces to develop novel drugs against parasites. The four-year E.U.-funded project led by VU University Amsterdam is called PDE4NPD: PhosphoDiEsterase inhibitors for Neglected Parasitic Diseases.. Neglected parasitic diseases (NPDs) form an enormous obstacle to the development of communities across the world. The diseases are classified neglected as investments in finding cures for these illnesses are extremely low, especially when considering their devastating impact on human and veterinary health. The NPDs addressed in this project-Chagas disease, human African trypanosomiasis, leishmaniasis and schistosomiasis-collectively result in 6.6 million disability-adjusted life years.. During the last 30 years, only nine new drugs targeting these NPDs have come to market. Some of these treatments cause severe side effects, while others are very expensive or are threatened ...

Parasitology traditionally has included the study of three major groups of animals: parasitic protozoa, parasitic helminths (worms), and those arthropods that directly cause disease or act as vectors of various pathogens. A parasite is a pathogen that simultaneously injures and derives sustenance from its host. Some organisms called parasites are actually commensals, in that they neither benefit nor harm their host (for example, Entamoeba coli). Although parasitology had its origins in the zoologic sciences, it is today an interdisciplinary field, greatly influenced by microbiology, immunology, biochemistry, and other life sciences.A misconception about parasitic infections/worms is that they occur only in tropical areas ...

The first major grants, beginning in 1984, established the Consortium on the Biology of Parasitic Diseases. Researchers at eleven institutions worked together to establish and legitimize the field of molecular parasite biology by recruiting established cellular and molecular biologists, turning their technologies and experience to the study of parasites, and training the next generation of molecular parasite biologists. The Consortiums work was augmented by grants for equipment, problem-solving workshops, a summer course at the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole, and the World Health Organizations Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases.. The Consortium did more than establish molecular parasite biology as a credible and exciting area of research. It also helped stimulate greatly increased funding for research in the field, especially by the federal National Institutes of Health, created a cadre of well-trained young researchers, and created a spectrum of new ...
