Cryptocurrency plunge continues as the late-2017 bubble takes them all down, including Bitcoin

(Natural News) The total value of all cryptocurrencies currently in circulation has fallen below $200 billion for the first time since November 2017, according to new reports. As the crypto bloodbath continues, investor forecasts are looking dimmer by the day, as a shocking 98 of the top 100 cryptos have reportedly lost value – some...

is AD Abstract Cryptosporidium is a genus of single celled parasites capable of infecting a wide range of animals including humans. Cryptosporidium species are members of the phylum apicomplexa, which includes well-known genera such as Plasmodium and Toxoplasma. Cryptosporidium parasites cause a severe gastro-intestinal disease known as cryptosporidiosis. They are one of the most common causes of childhood diarrhoea worldwide, and infection can have prolonged detrimental effects on the development of children, but also can be life threatening to HIV/AIDS patients and transplant recipients. A variety of hosts can a...

We describe a case of a renal transplant recipient with cryptosporidiosis confirmed by the stool FilmArray gastrointestinal panel (GIP) nucleic acid-based assay and stool microscopy, describe our institutional experience in diagnosing cryptosporidiosis in a low-prevalence setting, and review the available literature on management of this condition in the organ transplant population. In a low-prevalence setting, the GIP can serve as a rapid screening tool in the diagnosis of cryptosporidiosis. PMID: 30457100 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

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...

Publication date: Available online 10 November 2018Source: Veterinary ParasitologyAuthor(s): Camilla Björkman, Claudia von Brömssen, Karin Troell, Catarina SvenssonAbstractDiarrhea is common in young calves and is often caused by Cryptosporidium parvum infection. 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,...

Publication date: Available online 13 October 2018Source: Spatial and Spatio-temporal EpidemiologyAuthor(s): N.F. Reeve, P.J. Diggle, K. Lamden, T. 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.
