Protozoan co-infections and parasite influence on the efficacy of vaccines against bacterial and viral pathogens
A wide range of protozoan pathogens either transmitted by vectors (Plasmodium, Babesia, Leishmania and Trypanosoma), by contaminated food or water (Entamoeba and Giardia), or by sexual contact (Trichomonas) invade various organs in the body and cause prominent human diseases, such as malaria, babesiosis, leishmaniasis, trypanosomiasis, diarrhea, and trichomoniasis. Humans are frequently exposed to multiple pathogens simultaneously, or sequentially in the high-incidence regions to result in co-infections. Consequently, synergistic or antagonistic pathogenic effects could occur between microbes that also influences overall h...

Epidemiologic Investigation of Intestinal Parasite Infection and Associated Risk Factors among Primary Schoolchildren in the Manzini and Lubombo Provinces, the Kingdom of Eswatini
In this study, we monitored the IPI status along with the associated risk factors for PSC in two provinces-Manzini and Lubombo. After consent from their parents/guardians, a total of 316 samples collected from PSC with grades 1 to 3 from four primary schools in Manzini and Lubombo were examined by the Merthiolate-Iodine-Formaldehyde (MIF) method. In addition, demographic characteristics and risk factors acquired by questionnaire surveys were included to be statistically analyzed. The overall prevalence was 40.5% (128/316), of which the infection rate in Manzini and Lubombo was 28.8% (19/66) and 58.3% (74/140), respectively...

Effect of probiotics on the intestinal microbiota of patients with giardiasis and ascariasis
J Med Life. 2022 Oct;15(10):1278-1282. doi: 10.25122/jml-2022-0191.ABSTRACTRecently, many cases of mixed invasion by Giardia and ascarids have been registered. Gastrointestinal lesions in patients are often accompanied by dysbiotic changes. The aim was to study the effect of probiotics containing Saccharomyces bouvardias CNCM I-745 in the complex therapy of patients with giardiasis, ascariasis, and mixed invasion. 90 patients with giardiasis, ascariasis and mixed invasion were divided into 3 groups, depending on the type of invasion. Each group was divided into two subgroups, depending on the treatment (basic treatment and...

Parasitological, microbiological, and antimicrobial resistance profiles of raw and drinking water in a tourist city in the tri-border region of South America
J Water Health. 2022 Feb;20(2):385-395. doi: 10.2166/wh.2022.256.ABSTRACTDespite the large amounts of freshwater available in Brazil, the deterioration of surface water can represent a risk of waterborne disease for national and international tourists. The main goal of this study was to assess the quality of drinking water in the triple border region of Brazil before and after being treated in water treatment plants (WTPs) and in Municipal Early Childhood Education Centers (MECECs), in terms of parasitological, microbiological, and physical-chemical aspects. Different water samples were monitored: raw water (RW), treated w...
