*  Essential role for TLR4 and MyD88 in the development of chronic intestinal nematode infection - LSHTM Research Online | London...
Expulsion of the gastrointestinal nematode Trichuris muris is mediated by a T helper 2 type response involving IL-4 and IL-13. Here we show that Th1 response-associated susceptibility is dependent on activation signals mediated by MyD88 and Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4). TLR4- and MyD88-deficient mice are highly resistant to chronic T. muris infection and develop strong antigen-specific Th2 responses in mucosa-associated lymphoid tissues. Hence, TLR4 and MyD88 are involved not only in the development of pro-inflammatory responses against bacterial pathogens but are also crucially involved in responses against multicellular organisms such as helminths. These results provide the first demonstration of the critical role of TLR4 and MyD88 in bridging the innate and acquired immune response during gastrointestinal nematode infection.. ...

Recent studies have shown that the efficacy of benzimidazole drugs is influenced by the intensity of trichuriasis. Therefore, the objective of this study was to determine the efficacy of albendazole (ALB) and mebendazole (MBZ) administered randomly for 1 (ALB x 1 and MBZ x 1) or 2 days (ALB x 2 and MBZ x 2) to 385 school children with heavy-intensity trichuriasis (mean faecal egg counts (FEC) > 1000 eggs per gram of stool (epg)) in Jimma Town, Ethiopia. The efficacies (95% confidence intervals) by means of reduction in faecal egg counts (FECs) were 29.3% (-9.9-56.2), 60.0% (48.5-70.9), 73.5% (64.2-81.3), and 87.1% (81.4-91.2) for ALB x 1, MBZ x 1, ALB x 2, and MBZ x 2, respectively. These observations highlight that assessment of the anthelmintic efficacy of existing or new compounds against Trichuris trichiura should be assessed under varying levels of infection intensity. ...

*  Trichuriasis (Whipworm Infection, Trichuris Infection)
The unembryonated eggs are passed with the stool. In the soil, the eggs develop into a 2-cell stage, an advanced cleavage stage, and then they embryonate; eggs become infective in 15 to 30 days. After ingestion (soil-contaminated hands or food), the eggs hatch in the small intestine, and release larvae that mature and establish themselves as adults in the colon. The adult worms (approximately 4 cm in length) live in the caecum and ascending colon. The adult worms are fixed in that location, with the anterior portions threaded into the mucosa. The females begin to oviposit 60 to 70 days after infection. Female worms in the caecum shed between 3,000 and 20,000 eggs per day. The life span of the adults is about 1 year.. ...

Human trichuriasis, caused by the gut-dwelling soil-transmitted helminth species Trichuris trichiura, represents a major public health problem in the developing world since an estimated 604-795 million people are infected worldwide[1]. T. trichiura infections are responsible for the loss of 349,000-1,061,000 disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) per year[2]. Particularly affected, school- and preschool-aged children are confronted with the largest morbidity burden[3]. Mild infections are often asymptomatic, however, in severe and chronic infections patients can suffer from dysentery, anemia and impairment of physical and mental development[3]. The drugs recommended by the World Health Organization[4], albendazole and mebendazole, have been in use for decades and display only moderate cure rates when administered as single doses[5-7]. Although this has not arisen as a problem yet, potential emergence of drug resistance is of concern[5, 6]. Thus, there is a need to find novel anthelmintic ...

*  IL-33: a Janus cytokine | Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases
Interleukin (IL) 33, a member of the IL-1 family, is the ligand of ST2 that is expressed mainly on activated Th2 cells and mast cells. IL-33 can skew a predominantly Th1 cell population to a mainly Th2 cells phenotype in vivo. IL-33 messenger RNA is expressed early during infection of the intestinal-dwelling nematode Trichuris muris in mice. IL-33 treatment enhances resistance to Trichuris infection. IL-33 also effectively attenuates sepsis by mobilising the innate cells, neutrophils, to the site of infection, helping to clear the pathogens. Thus, IL-33 may be evolutionally preserved for the host defence against infections. IL-33 can reduce an ongoing atherosclerosis in ApoE−/− mice and attenuate adipocytes mainly by inducing the production of type II cytokines. In contrast, IL-33 can also exacerbate allergy and the inflammation in collagen-induced or serum-induced arthritis. Hence, IL-33 is a double-edged sword, and targeting IL-33 should be approached with caution.. ...

*  "Initiation and Regulation of Type 2 Immunity and Inflammation at Mucos" by Jacqueline Gage Perrigoue
Identifying the cellular and molecular requirements for initiating and regulating type 2 immunity and inflammation is essential for the development of new vaccines against helminth parasites and treatments for atopic diseases. CD11c+ dendritic cells (DCs) are critical antigen-presenting cells (APCs) capable of priming and promoting the differentiation of naïve CD4+ T cells. However, the role of DCs in the initiation of Th2 cell differentiation following exposure to helminth parasites and allergens remains unclear. In Chapter 2, we examine the cellular requisites for initiating Th2 cytokine-dependent immunity and inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract utilizing infection with the helminth Trichuris muris. By genetic restriction of MHC class II expression to CD11c+ DCs we demonstrate that, in contrast to Th1-cytokine-mediated immunity, antigen presentation by CD11c+ cells is insufficient to generate protective type 2 immune responses in vivo, suggesting additional ...

*  Trichuris suis therapy in Crohn's disease | Gut
Human helminthic parasites were considered as a therapeutic option. Many could not be used because there are no available sources other than a human carrier. Eggs from such a source would risk inadvertent transmission of pathogenic microbial agents. Also, some human helminths have disease potential or raise public health concerns.. Trichuris species are helminths with favourable characteristics for therapeutic use. Their life cycle minimises the risk of inadvertent colonisation. Trichuris ova mature in the soil and are ingested by the host. Ova hatch in the duodenum, releasing larvae that ultimately grow in 6-8 weeks into adult worms. They migrate to the terminal ileum and colon but do not invade the host. Worms can remain viable for 1-2 years in the natural host. Adult worms release ova that are shed into the stool. These ova are immature and are not capable of colonising another host until they incubate in the soil for several weeks to allow embryonation.. We chose T suis as the helminth to ...

*  PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases: A Peer-Reviewed Open-Access Journal
Author Summary Mixed infections with roundworm, whipworm and hookworm are common, but survey reports often give only the separate prevalence of each type. However, the combined prevalence is important to estimate accurately the number of individuals who would benefit from control programmes and to make decisions about the frequency of treatment. Previous work suggests that mixed infections involving hookworm occur randomly, but that roundworm and whipworm infections are found together more frequently than would be expected by chance. We used 63 data sets from community surveys that reported both the proportions infected with individual types of worms and the combined proportion infected with any worm. We then calculated the proportion that would be infected with any type of worm if infections had occurred randomly and compared it with the observed combined proportion infected. We found a strong correlation between the observed and predicted combined proportions infected. A small downward correction of
