Species-specific monoclonal antibodies for rapid identification of Bartonella quintana. (1/132)

Seven species-specific monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) to Bartonella quintana were produced and characterized. The MAbs were of the immunoglobulin G class and reacted only with 13 B. quintana strains in indirect microimmunofluorescence and Western immunoblotting assays. They did not react with eight other Bartonella spp., including Bartonella henselae, the most closely related species, and a selected MAb did also not react with nine other strains of gram-negative bacteria. The MAbs reacted mainly with a 34-kDa protein epitope of B. quintana which was shown to be species specific by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Four of five body lice experimentally infected with B. quintana were found to be positive for the organism in microimmunofluorescence assays with one MAb. These MAbs may provide a specific, simple, rapid, and low-cost tool for the identification of B. quintana and the diagnosis of infections due to the microorganism.  (+info)

Infestation status of head louse and treatment with lindane shampoo in children of primary school and kindergarten in Chinju-shi, Kyongsangnam-do, Korea. (2/132)

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)

Experimental model of human body louse infection using green fluorescent protein-expressing Bartonella quintana. (3/132)

A laboratory colony of human body lice was experimentally infected by feeding on rabbits made artificially bacteremic with a green fluorescent protein-expressing Bartonella quintana. B. quintana was detected in the gut and feces until death but not in the eggs. The life span of the lice was not modified. The rabbit model should provide valuable clues to the role of lice in the transmission of B. quintana.  (+info)

Detection and culture of Bartonella quintana, Serratia marcescens, and Acinetobacter spp. from decontaminated human body lice. (4/132)

As part of a survey for trench fever among homeless people in Marseilles, France, we attempted isolation of Bartonella quintana from body lice. A decontamination protocol of immersion in 70% ethanol with 0.2% iodine was devised and was tested with a laboratory colony of body lice. Lice which had been experimentally contaminated with either Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus epidermidis, or Acinetobacter spp. were successfully decontaminated, and this process did not prevent the culture of B. quintana from these lice. One hundred sixty-one lice obtained from homeless patients were studied by the protocol. B. quintana was isolated on axenic medium from 15 of 161 body lice and was detected in 41 of 161 lice by PCR. Acinetobacter spp. and Serratia marcescens were also isolated from body lice. The sensitivities of PCR and culture of B. quintana were 98 and 36%, respectively. These procedures may be useful for epidemiologic studies of trench fever and for the recovery of strains for characterization and comparison.  (+info)

Mutualists and parasites: how to paint yourself into a (metabolic) corner. (5/132)

Eukaryotes have developed an elaborate series of interactions with bacteria that enter their bodies and/or cells. Genome evolution of symbiotic and parasitic bacteria multiplying inside eukaryotic cells results in both convergent and divergent changes. The genome sequences of the symbiotic bacteria of aphids, Buchnera aphidicola, and the parasitic bacteria of body louse and humans, Rickettsia prowazekii, provide insights into these processes. Convergent genome characteristics include reduction in genome sizes and lowered G+C content values. Divergent evolution was recorded for amino acid and cell wall biosynthetic genes. The presence of pseudogenes in both genomes provides examples of recent gene inactivation events and offers clues to the process of genome deterioration and host-cell adaptation.  (+info)

The role of community pharmacists in prescribing medication for the treatment of head lice. (6/132)

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)

Epidemiological aspects of head lice in children attending day care centres, urban and rural schools in Uberlandia, central Brazil. (7/132)

From November 1996 to March 2000, a total of 884 children between 0 and 15 years, from 11 institutions including day care centres, public urban and public rural schools in Uberlandia, State of Minas Gerais, central Brazil, were examined for head louse infestation. Children's sex, race, age and some hairs characteristics were shown to be associated to parasite infestation. A prevalence rate of 35% was found and the highest rates were observed in black, female children, with long, dark, wavy hairs. Hairs density and thickness did not seem to influence significantly the distribution of this pediculosis in Uberlandia's schoolchildren. Differences observed between the prevalence rates of head lice in children from the urban institutions suggest there is a greater epidemiological heterogeneity in this group when compared to the rural schoolchildren.  (+info)

Wet combing for head lice: feasibility in mass screening, treatment preference and outcome. (8/132)

There is no scientific consensus on the best way to control head louse infestation in schoolchildren. A study was conducted to test the feasibility and acceptability of a screening campaign by wet combing and a community approach to head-louse control with home visits, and to explore parents' treatment preferences and treatment outcomes. A non-controlled intervention (advice on treatment options offered to all positive children) was nested within an epidemiological prevalence study. All children in three primary schools in Ghent, Belgium, were invited to take part in screening by wet combing (n=677, 3-11 years). Positive children were offered structural treatment advice, a home visit on day 7, and a check by wet combing on day 14. 83% of the children were screened. The prevalence of active infestation (living moving lice) was 13.0% in school 1 and 19.5% in school 3. In school 2, prevalence of signs of active and past infestation was 40.7%. A home visit was made to 58% of the positive children. 85% of the positive children were screened again on day 14. Wet combing was the most widely used treatment, followed by chemical treatment and a combination of the two. In school 1 and 3 51% were cured, and in school 2 24% became nit-free. A wet combing screening campaign and a community-oriented approach to head-louse control is feasible though resource-intensive. The prevalence of head lice was high and the cure rate was low, with either topical treatments or wet combing.  (+info)

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 ...
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.

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 ...
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

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).

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
Louse-borne relapsing fever (LBRF) is a vector-borne disease transmitted by the body louse Pediculus humanus humanus. The disease can be severe. Currently the disease is primarily found in north-eastern Africa.
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 ...
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 ...
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.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 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.
An acute febrile illness caused by spirochetes of the genus Borrelia. The fevers spontaneously abate and then recur. The human body louse (Pediculus humanus) is the main vector. A less severe form is transmitted by soft ticks of the genus Ornithodorus.
The human body louse, Pediculus humanus, showed eighteen midgut proteins ranging between 12 and 117 kDa, when analysed by SDS-PAGE electrophoresis. Seven of them (12 kDa, 17 kDa, 29 kDa, 35 kDa, 40 kDa, 55 kDa and 97 kDa) were major bands based on their intensity of staining. The immunization of rabbits with a midgut extract elicited the production of protective polyclonal antibodies. These antibodies reacted strongly with all major midgut proteins as well as with 63 kDa and 117 kDa proteins when tested by the Western blot technique. The analysis of the proteins revealed that the 12 kDa, 25 kDa, 29 kDa, 35 kDa, 45 kDa, 87 kDa and 97 kDa proteins are glycosylated and none of them contained a lipid moiety. By electroelution, the proteins of 35 kDa and 63 kDa were purified. On trypsinization, the proteins of 35 kDa and 63 kDa produced four major fragments (F1, F2, F3, and F4) when resolved on a 18% SDS-PAGE. The F1 fragment of the 35 kDa protein reacted with the polyclonal antibodies by the ...
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 ...
Hair dryers can harm hair. The best method of blowdrying your hair is to keep the dryer on the cool air setting. Keep the dryer moving around, so it is not in a certain spot for too long. Be sure to untangle all knots in your hair with your fingers before brushing, so that you avoid damaging it.. To get great looking hair, eat a diet that is healthy. To look beautiful, your hair needs a healthy diet. A deficiency of important nutrients can result in brittle, weak and unattractive hair. You can even lose your hair if you have a serious deficiency. Be sure that youre eating right so that you have the best hair possible.. Wait two days before shampooing your hair after you have colored it. Your hairs cuticle needs time in order to seal itself so that the color will stay true and last longer. Just wetting your hair can impede this process. You will be rewarded when you are patient with shiny and healthy hair.. The myth that getting your hair trimmed regularly makes it grow faster is false. Human ...
TRP (Transient Receptor Potential) channels respond to diverse stimuli and thus function as the primary integrators of varied sensory information. They are also activated by various compounds and secondary messengers to mediate cell-cell interactions as well as to detect changes in the local environment. Their physiological roles have been primarily characterized only in mice and fruit flies, and evolutionary studies are limited. To understand the evolution of insect TRP channels and the mechanisms of integrating sensory inputs in insects, we have identified and compared TRP channel genes in Drosophila melanogaster, Bombyx mori, Tribolium castaneum, Apis mellifera, Nasonia vitripennis, and Pediculus humanus genomes as part of genome sequencing efforts. All the insects examined have 2 TRPV, 1 TRPN, 1 TRPM, 3 TRPC, and 1 TRPML subfamily members, demonstrating that these channels have the ancient origins in insects. The common pattern also suggests that the mechanisms for detecting mechanical and visual
Autosomal recessive juvenile Parkinsonism (AR-JP) is caused by mutations in a number of PARK genes, in particular in the E3 ubiquitin ligase Parkin (PARK2), and in its upstream protein kinase PINK1 (PARK6). PINK1 phosphorylates ubiquitin and the Parkin ubiquitin-like domain on structurally protected Ser65 to trigger mitophagy. We here report a crystal structure of a nanobody-stabilised complex between Pediculus humanus corporis (Ph)PINK1 with ubiquitin in the C-terminally retracted (Ub-CR) conformation. The structure reveals many peculiarities of PINK1, including the architecture of the C-terminal region, and reveals how the PINK1 N-lobe binds ubiquitin via a unique insertion ...

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. ...
MINOR AILMENTS. There are now many treatments available for head lice, but which ones work? In the third of our series on minor ailments, where experts give an evidence-based update on what works, Dr Ciara Dodd and Mr Ian Burgess offer advice. Infection with head lice can be a problematic and confusing experience for sufferers and their families for a number of reasons:. • A wide variety of treatment options are readily available over the counter, including conventional pediculicides and herbal or other alternative remedies.. • Treatment failure can occur due to inappropriate application of the product, less effective formulations or because of insecticide resistance.. • Patients often do not know where to go for information about treatment options, particularly after treatment failure, and many people are concerned about toxicity of insecticides. • Diagnosis can be poor, and many misconceptions about head lice are still widely believed which may lead to inappropriate treatment, so ...
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
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.

Head lice, often referred to as nits (which are actually the louse eggs), are extremely common in kids. And (due in part to the selfie generation) the problem is now spreading among adolescents too. Head lice are tiny parasitic insect that lives among human hairs; feeding on tiny amounts of blood drawn from the scalp. Theyre contagious, annoying, and sometimes tough to get rid of; but are not actually dangerous, as they are not known to spread disease.
