Cobalt nanoparticles as novel nanotherapeutics against Acanthamoeba castellanii

Species of Acanthamoeba are facultative pathogens which can cause sight threatening Acanthamoeba keratitis and a rare but deadly brain infection, granulomatous amoebic encephalitis. Due to conversion of Acanthamo...

We report a case of a middle aged seropositive male, virologically well suppressed on second line ART (Anti-Retroviral therapy) who presented with a subacute history of neurological symptoms. On imaging and CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) evaluation, he was found to have CD8 encephalitis - a new, rare but treatable entity. To the best of our knowledge, no case has been reported from India.

Authors: Eroğlu F Abstract The free living amoebae cause various infections such as Acanthamoeba keratitis, granulomatous amoebic encephalitis, primer amoebic meningoencephalitis in humans and animals. The free living amoebae Acanthamoeba, Balamuthia mandriallis, Naegleria fowleria and Sappinia species that cause disease in humans have been isolated from many environmental materials until today. However, no isolation has been reported from the filters of the air conditions from the houses used for ventilation. The aim of this study was toinvestigate the existence of free living amoebae using molecular methods in t...

o-Morales J Abstract Free-living amoebae of genus Acanthamoeba are opportunistic pathogens widely distributed in the environment, and are the causative agents of several humans' infections, such as Acanthamoeba keratitis, Granulomatous Amoebic Encephalitis and also disseminated infections. The existence of the cyst stage complicates Acanthamoeba therapy as it is highly resistant to antibiotics and physical agents. All these facts reinforced the necessity to find and develop an effective therapy against Acanthamoeba infections. In the present study, we are interested to several seaweeds species collected from the T...

d-Grillo T, Piñero JE, Lorenzo-Morales J Abstract Acanthamoeba is an opportunistic pathogen which is the causal agent of a sight-threatening ulceration of the cornea known as Acanthamoeba keratitis (AK) and, more rarely, an infection of the central nervous system called "granulomatous amoebic encephalitis" (GAE). The symptoms of AK are non-specific, and so it can be misdiagnosed as a viral, bacterial, or fungal keratitis. Furthermore, current therapeutic measures against AK are arduous, and show limited efficacy against the cyst stage of Acanthamoeba. 1H-Phenalen-1-one (PH) containing compounds ha...
