DOJ launches massive criminal probe into Bitcoin price manipulation and fraud

(Natural News) Are certain malicious entities committing mass fraud in order to manipulate the price of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies? That’s what the United States Department of Justice (DoJ) is currently looking into as part of a new criminal probe into crypto crimes. The investigation comes on the heels of complaints by crypto critics that...

Florin-Christensen, L. SchnittgerAbstractThe apicomplexan protozoan Cryptosporidium parvum is an important causative agent of diarrhea of neonatal bovines. Vaccination has been proposed as an advantageous strategy against cryptosporidiosis of calves since besides protection against disease it has also the potential to prevent dissemination of the infective oocysts into the environment. Antigens anchored to the parasite surface via gly...

The aim of this study was to investigate if disinfection of calf pens with hydrated lime would reduce contamination of C. parvum oocysts and improve calf health in herds with C. parvum associated diarrhea problems. Four dairy herds with ongoing C. parvum associated calf diarrhea problems each participated in the study over six to seven months. During the...

Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted among 50 HIV/AIDS patients with recurrent diarrhea. Questionnaires were administered to collect social and behavioral risk factors associated with Cryptosporidium and other opportunistic protozoan parasitic infections in HIV patien...

Abstract Members of the genus Cryptosporidium are frequent protozoan pathogens in humans and a wide range of animals. There is no consistently effective treatment against cryptosporidiosis, especially in immunodeficient patients. The present study was carried out to study the therapeutic effects of curcumin against cryptosporidiosis in immunosuppressed BALB/c mice. Mice were divided into five groups and immunosuppressed by dexamethasone. Three groups were inoculated with C. parvum oocysts, administered with curcumin, paromomycin, and without treatment. The reminders were regarded as controls. The oocysts in the fe...

The chemical diversity and known safety profiles of drugs previously tested in humans make them a valuable set of compounds to explore potential therapeutic utility in indications outside those originally targeted, especially neglected tropical diseases. This practice of “drug repurposing” has become commonplace in academic and other nonprofit drug-discovery efforts,...

KeeganAbstractGiardia and Cryptosporidium are both waterborne parasites and leading causes of gastroenteritis. Although specimens from diarrhoeic patients are routinely examined for Cryptosporidium, they are often not examined for Giardia so many cases go undiagnosed. Since 2002, all faecal specimens in Central Lancashire have been tested for infection with Giardia and Cryptosporidium. The aim of this paper is to gain insight into the factors contributing to giardiasis and cryp...

Abstract Cryptosporidium causes significant morbidity in malnourished children. Nitazoxanide (NTZ) is the only approved treatment for cryptosporidiosis, but NTZ has diminished effectiveness during malnutrition. Here we show that amixicile, a highly selective water soluble derivative of NTZ diminishes Cryptosporidium severity in a malnourished mouse model despite a lack of direct anti-cryptosporidial activity. We suggest that amixicile; by tamping down anaerobes associated with intestinal inflammation, reverses weight loss and indirectly mitigates infection-associated pathology.

Authors: Gracenea M, Castaño S, Méndez J, Lucena F, Gómez MS Abstract A study was conducted of the occurrence of Cryptosporidium in indoor heated public swimming pools and of three bacterial indicators (Escherichia coli, faecal enterococci and Clostridium perfringens) on pool surrounds. Although all examined pools adhered strictly to the Spanish regulations, the influence of several parameters related to water conditions, pool structure, users and location on the presence of protozoa and bacteria was analysed. Cryptosporidium was detected in 18.8% of pools in 60% of the five towns studied. The ...

Authors: Ridderstedt F, Widerström M, Lindh J, Lilja M Abstract We investigated sick leave from work, studies, preschool, and kindergarten occurring between 1 November 2010 and 31 January 2011 and associated with a waterborne outbreak of diarrhea caused by Cryptosporidium hominis in late November 2010 in Östersund, Sweden with 45.2% of 60,000 residents being symptomatic. A questionnaire defining acute watery diarrhoea and/or ≥3 diarrhea episodes/day as cryptosporidiosis was sent to 1,508 residents in late January 2011 (response rate 69.2%). Among adults aged 18-60 years, 24.0% took sick leave for a mea...

The present study aimed to describe clinical signs of cryptosporidiosis in neonatal foals hospitalized in an Equine Perinatology Unit (EPU) and to compare the clinical signs between Cryptosporidium parvum and Cryptosporidium horse genotype infection. The study was divided into 2 parts. In the retrospective study, 9 foals infected by C. parvum were considered. In the prospective study, 70 foals, less than 15 days old, were prospectively included. Historical and clinical data were recorded and, in the prospective study, multiple fecal samples were collected.
