Intestinal parasitic infections and associated factors among street dwellers ’ in Dessie town, North-East Ethiopia: a cross sectional study

Intestinal parasitic infections are among the major cause of diseases of public health problems in sub-Saharan Africa. In Ethiopia, epidemiological information on street dwellers is very limited. So, this stud...

Rodents are globally overpopulated and are reservoirs for a variety of zoonotic pathogens. Bamboo rats are a common species of rodent that are bred for meat and wool in China. However, the genetic characterization of Cryptosporidium in bamboo rats in China ...

Primary lymphedema is hereditary and is considered a consequence of an inherited abnormality of the lymphatic system. Secondary lymphedema, however, is a consequence of lymphatic failure resulting from trauma, parasitic infection, or iatrogenic o...

We present the case of a young man with a prior history of exploratory laparotomy for trauma, who had recently immigrated from the Philippines, where ascariasis is endemic, to the Central Valley of California in the United States. He presented with a small bowel obstruction, and at laparotomy was noted to have both a proximal Ascaris bezoar as well as a distal anastomotic stricture.

Authors: Martínez-Saucedo D, Ruíz-Rosado JD, Terrazas C, Callejas BE, Satoskar AR, Partida-Sánchez S, Terrazas LI Abstract Helminth parasites modulate immune responses in their host to prevent their elimination and to establish chronic infections. Our previous studies indicate that Taenia crassiceps-excreted/secreted antigens (TcES) downregulate inflammatory responses in rodent models of autoimmune diseases, by promoting the generation of alternatively activated-like macrophages (M2) in vivo. However, the molecular mechanisms triggered by TcES that modulate macrophage polarization and inflammat...

Publication date: Available online 22 June 2019Source: Current Therapeutic ResearchAuthor(s): Martin L. NelwanAbstractHuman schistosomiasis is a parasitic disease caused by blood-worms that infect multiple organs, including the liver, intestine, bladder, and urethra. The life cycle of these parasites involves two hosts: snails and mammals. Manifestations of schistosomiasis can be acute or chronic. Clinical manifestations of acute schistosomiasis can include fever and headache. Symptoms of chronic infections can include dysuria and hyperplasia. Infections can occur in several sites, including the bile ducts, intestine, and ...

AbstractSarcoptic mange infestation is one of the major constrains in commercial rabbit rearing due to their ability to produce negative impact on the growth rates and feed conversion efficiency. Ten adult rabbits presented with the history of anorexia, pruritis and crusty lesion in ear, face and legs were selected for the study. Skin scraping examination revealed presence ofSarcoptes scabiei. The subcutaneous administration of single dose long acting injectable Ivermectin (3.15% w/v) formulation at a dose rate of 700  mcg/kg body weight was found to be safe, effective and less time consuming for the management of Sar...

In conclusion, we provide the first systematically collected evidence on the congruence of the helminth distribution and phylogeny of the raptorial niche, which is consistent with its split into Australaves and Afroaves.Graphical abstract

In this study, all fifty-nine Parascaris worms were harvested from three different equine hosts (twenty specimens from Equus zebra, twenty specimens from E. caballus, and nineteen specimens from E. asinus). The ribosomal gene (ITS) and mitochondrial genes (cox1 and nadh1) were amplified to identify and genetically characterize these worms. Analysis of ITS sequences revealed five genotypes among the fifty-nine worms, and the sequence similarity among the worms from E. zebra and E. caballus was at a high level (99.87%), while the one of E. asinus worms showed an apparent difference from the worms either from the E. zebra or ...

Mejía-JaramilloAbstractSurra is a zoonotic disease caused by Trypanosoma evansi, affecting the health and production of the livestock significantly. There are several methods to diagnose this disease, which have different principles, sensitivity, and specificity. Among them, the serological techniques using T. evansi as antigen are powerful tools for its epidemiological surveillance. However, they are poorly used due to inefficient in ...
