Arch Argent Pediatr 2018 Dec;116(6):e753-e756

Sector de Bajo Riesgo. Servicio de Clínica, Hospital Nacional de Pediatría "Prof. Dr. Juan P. Garrahan", Ciudad de Buenos Aires.

Toxocariasis canis or catis is a zoonotic infection disseminated in humans. Human beings can act as non-natural hosts in which the parasite can survive for long periods of time and they become infected by the ingestion of geohelminth eggs. These can be located on the ground, playgrounds and children's games, and are mostly eliminated by dogs or cats. Read More

Clinical and laboratory characteristics of patients with toxocariasis encountered at a tertiary care centre in North India.

Indian J Med Microbiol 2018 Jul-Sep;36(3):432-434

Department of Pediatrics, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.

Toxocariasis is a neglected soil-transmitted helminthic infection caused by either Toxocara canis or Toxocara cati where humans get infected by accidental ingestion of embryonated eggs, and the definitive hosts are dogs and cats. This study aims to analyse the clinical and laboratory characteristics of Toxocara-infected patients and assessment of response to standard treatment with review of literature. The clinical details of patients with Toxocara serology positive for IgG antibodies by ELISA in 5 years (2013-2017) were retrospectively analysed. Read More

Standardization and application of a modified RFLP-PCR methodology for analysis of polymorphisms linked to treatment resistance in Ancylostoma braziliense.

Parasit Vectors 2018 Oct 9;11(1):540. Epub 2018 Oct 9.

Departamento de Parasitologia, L4 237, Laboratório de Parasitologia Molecular, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Instituto de Ciências Biológicas, Avenida Presidente Antônio Carlos, 6627, Pampulha, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, CEP 31270-901, Brazil.

Background: Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in codons 167, 198 and 200 of the beta-tubulin isotype 1 gene are associated with benzimidazoles resistance in many helminths. Codon 167 mutation has never been described in hookworms; however, polymorphisms in codons 198 and 200 have been described for Ancylostoma caninum and Necator americanus. These mutations have never been investigated in Ancylostoma braziliense; therefore, it is not known if they are present in this species and whether they are correlated with treatment resistance.

Robust Phenotypic Activation of Eosinophils during Experimental Infection.

Front Immunol 2018 31;9:64. Epub 2018 Jan 31.

Laboratory of Inflammation and Infectious Diseases, Department of Morphology and Pathology, Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar), São Carlos, Brazil.

Eosinophils are multifunctional cells that have cytotoxic proinflammatory activities and stimulate CD4 T-cells in experimental models of allergy and parasitic infections. Eosinophils, when exposed to antigens, are activated, expressing the CD38/CD69 molecules and exhibited increased expression of major histocompatibility complex (MHC-II), CD80 and CD86, suggesting they play a role upon antigen stimulation. In the present study, we evaluated the profile of eosinophils using conventional and image flow cytometry upon experimental infection. Read More

A frequent roundworm Baylisascaris transfuga in overpopulated brown bears (Ursus arctos) in Slovakia: a problem worthy of attention.

Acta Parasitol 2018 Mar;63(1):167-174

Department of Epizootiology and Parasitology, University of Veterinary Medicine and Pharmacy, Komenského 73, 041 81 Košice, Slovak Republic.

The genus Baylisascaris (order Ascaridida) includes numerous relatively host-specific nematodes, which are common in intestines of wild mammals. Some of them may have impact on veterinary and public health, as their larvae have the potential to cause visceral, ocular, and/or neural larva migrans in a wide range of mammals, birds, and humans. Baylisascaris transfuga is a parasite occurring in a range of bear species throughout the world. Read More
