• infection
  • Löffler's syndrome or Loeffler's syndrome is a disease in which eosinophils accumulate in the lung in response to a parasitic infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • major basic protein) is known as Loeffler endocarditis and can be caused by idiopathic eosinophilia or eosinophilia in response to parasitic infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • This freshwater snail is significant medically, because it is an important vector of parasitic infection in the tropics and subtropics. (wikipedia.org)
  • They are so called because they have a direct life cycle which requires no intermediate hosts or vectors, and the parasitic infection occurs through faecal contamination of soil, foodstuffs and water supplies. (wikipedia.org)
  • Even though the disease is principally a soil-transmitted helminthiasis, the infection being mediated through contaminated soil, it is however generally omitted in clinical practices and control programmes because of its (allegedly) relatively less significant influence on health and socio-economic conditions.

  • eosinophils
  • Herein, tissue-specific eosinophil mRNA microarray analysis identified that CD22 transcript levels of murine gastrointestinal (GI) eosinophils are 10-fold higher than those of lung eosinophils. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • It has been reported that GI eosinophils have a slower turnover rate compared to lung and blood eosinophils due to specific survival signaling ( 8 ). (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • GI eosinophils are also causatively related to the pathogenesis of a variety of GI tract disorders, such as EGIDs( 12 ), ulcerative colitis ( 13 ), Crohn's disease ( 14 )and intestinal tumors ( 15 ). (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • Studies with several cytokine knockout mice showed that expression of Retnla was dependent on IL-4 and IL-13 and inhibited by IFN-gamma, while tissue localization and cell isolation experiments indicated that eosinophils and epithelial cells were the primary producers of Retnla in the liver and lung, respectively. (nih.gov)
  • Many diseases, such as asthma and eczema, are caused when eosinophils overreact to environmental triggers and release an excess of chemicals, e.g. cytokines and histamine. (wikipedia.org)
  • Eosinophils migrate to the lung in order to fight the parasites and EP results. (wikipedia.org)
  • cholera
  • Over the years, Piarroux has taken part in several missions and research projects in Africa, including the study of the dynamics of cholera epidemics in Comoros, Democratic Republic of Congo and Guinea, prevention and management of parasitic diseases in Morocco, and a program to fight against waterborne diseases in Ivory Coast. (wikipedia.org)
  • In Besançon, his academic publication subjects included: Farmer's lung, the relationship between mold and asthma, unhealthy dwellings, cholera, echinococcosis (a local parasitic disease). (wikipedia.org)
  • Ascaris
  • Ascariasis is a disease caused by the parasitic roundworm Ascaris lumbricoides. (wikipedia.org)
  • Strongyloides stercoralis) Soil-transmitted helminthiasis is a collective name for the diseases caused by ascaris, whipworm and hookworms in humans. (wikipedia.org)
  • It includes species-specific diseases such as Ascariasis, which is caused by Ascaris lumbricoides Hookworm diseases (ancylostomiasis and necatoriasis), which are caused by Necator americanus and Ascaris duodenale Trichuriasis, which is caused by Trichuris trichiura Soil-transmitted helminthiasis is classified as one of the neglected tropical diseases projected to be controlled/eradicated by 2020 through the London Declaration on Neglected Tropical Diseases.

  • Adult
  • Finally, Retnla(-/-) mice infected with the gastrointestinal (GI) parasite Nippostrongylus brasiliensis had intensified lung pathology to migrating larvae, reduced fecundity, and accelerated expulsion of adult worms from the intestine, suggesting Th2 immunity was enhanced. (nih.gov)
  • P. skrjabini in humans, however, are known to often fail to make it to the lungs and thus don't reach the stage of adult development. (wikipedia.org)
  • Once eaten, the metacercaria excysts and penetrates the gut, diaphragm and lung where it becomes an adult worm in pairs. (wikipedia.org)
  • mice
  • Gause said that what occurs in mice from N brasiliensis perhaps occurs in humans from parasitic worms. (jagran.com)
  • Moreover, when chronically infected with S. mansoni cercariae, Retnla(-/-) mice displayed significant increases in granulomatous inflammation in the liver and the development of fibrosis and progression to hepatosplenic disease was markedly augmented. (nih.gov)
  • inflammation
  • They do so by mobilising various elements of the immune system to reduce inflammation and clear infectious debris while stimulating so-called growth-factor steroids and other proteins simultaneously to mend the damaged lung tissue. (jagran.com)
  • Pleurisy, also known as pleuritis, is inflammation of the membranes (pleurae) that surround the lungs and line the chest cavity. (wikipedia.org)
  • As larval stages travel through the body, they may cause visceral damage, peritonitis and inflammation, enlargement of the liver or spleen, and an inflammation of the lungs. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • Microvasculatre damage to the lungs is only second to neurological damage because the body is already suffering from hypoxic conditions, which leads to lung tissue damage as the second leading cause of fatalities. (wikipedia.org)
