Endoparasite prevalence and infection risk factors among cats in an animal shelter in Estonia.

Folia Parasitol (Praha) 2021 Apr 20;68. Epub 2021 Apr 20.

Department of Zoology, Institute of Ecology and Earth Sciences, University of Tartu, Estonia.

Cats are important hosts for different zoonotic parasites that can be hazardous to human health. To date, few studies have attempted to identify the factors affecting parasitic infections in shelter animals. This study aims to analyse the presence of endoparasites in shelter cats in Tartu, Estonia, and identify factors affecting endoparasite prevalence and intensity. Read More

[Circulation of Echinococcus granulosus in Los Antiguos, Santa Cruz].

Medicina (B Aires) 2021 ;81(2):166-172

Instituto Nacional de Microbiología, ANLIS Dr. Carlos G. Malbrán, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Hydatidosis - caused by the parasite Echinococcus granulosus - is a zoonosis endemic to the province of Santa Cruz, associated with areas of livestock production. Once infected, man may remain asymptomatic for a prolonged period but the disease has an important impact on public health owing to the complexity and costs of its treatment. This study aimed at assessing the prevalence of environmental E. Read More

[Evaluation of the Effect of Hydatid Cyst Fluid on the Apoptosis Pathway in BEAS-2B and A549 Cell Lines].

Mikrobiyol Bul 2021 Apr;55(2):248-255

Hacettepe University, School of Health Services, Medical Laboratory Programme, Ankara, Turkey.

Some of the pathogenic microorganisms have been associated with cancer due to the activation of cancer precursors in the host because of the inflammatory processes. Additionally, some other pathogens prevents the tumor formation by creating an anti-neoplastic immune response which has been reported to stop the development of cancer. Cystic echinococcosis (CE) or cyst hydatid disease (CHD) is a zoonotic infection caused by the larval form of Echinococcus granulosus sensu lato in humans. Read More

High frequency of Taenia solium antigen positivity in patients admitted for neurological disorders in the Rural Hospital of Mosango, Democratic Republic of Congo.

BMC Infect Dis 2021 Apr 17;21(1):359. Epub 2021 Apr 17.

Department of Clinical Sciences, Institute of Tropical Medicine, Antwerp, Belgium.

Background: The epidemiology of human cysticercosis and neurocysticercosis, caused by the larval stage of the pork tapeworm Taenia solium, is not well known in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Within a multicenter etiological and diagnostic study conducted by the NIDIAG consortium ("Better Diagnosis for Neglected Infections") and investigating several challenging syndromes, we consecutively evaluated from 2012 to 2015 all patients older than 5 years presenting with neurological disorders (neurology cohort) and with fever > 7 days (persistent fever cohort) at the rural hospital of Mosango, province of Kwilu, DRC. In both cohorts, etiological diagnosis relied on a systematic set of reference laboratory assays and on pre-established clinical case definitions. Read More

A remote management system for control and surveillance of echinococcosis: design and implementation based on internet of things.

Infect Dis Poverty 2021 Apr 13;10(1):50. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

National Institute of Parasitic Diseases, Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Shanghai, China.

Background: As a neglected cross-species parasitic disease transmitted between canines and livestock, echinococcosis remains a global public health concern with a heavy disease burden. In China, especially in the epidemic pastoral communities on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, the harsh climate, low socio-economic status, poor overall hygiene, and remote and insufficient access to all owned dogs exacerbate the difficulty in implementing the ambitious control programme for echinococcosis. We aimed to design and implement a remote management system (RMS) based on internet of things (IoT) for control and surveillance of echinococcosis by combining deworming devices to realise long-distance smart deworming control, smooth statistical analysis and result display.

Copro-polymerase chain reaction has higher sensitivity compared to centrifugal fecal flotation in the diagnosis of taeniid cestodes, especially Echinococcus spp, in canids.

Vet Parasitol 2021 Apr 5;292:109400. Epub 2021 Mar 5.

Department of Veterinary Microbiology, Western College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Saskatchewan, Canada.

Prompt and reliable diagnostic tests for taeniid infection in canids are important due to the risk of zoonoses like Echinococcus spp. Current diagnostic methods relying on fecal flotation lack sensitivity and specificity, but this has rarely been quantified due to the challenges in performing adult cestode recovery (the gold standard) in domestic dogs (Canis familiaris). Therefore, we recovered adult Taenia and Echinococcus spp. Read More
