Responses to a warming world: Integrating life history, immune investment, and pathogen resistance in a model insect species.

Ecol Evol 2017 11 16;7(22):9699-9710. Epub 2017 Oct 16.

School of Biological and Chemical Sciences Queen Mary University of London London UK.

Environmental temperature has important effects on the physiology and life history of ectothermic animals, including investment in the immune system and the infectious capacity of pathogens. Numerous studies have examined individual components of these complex systems, but little is known about how they integrate when animals are exposed to different temperatures. Here, we use the Indian meal moth () to understand how immune investment and disease resistance react and potentially trade-off with other life-history traits. Read More

Microsporidian parasites feminise hosts without paramyxean co-infection: support for convergent evolution of parasitic feminisation.

Int J Parasitol 2015 May 4;45(6):427-33. Epub 2015 Mar 4.

Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences, Aberystwyth University, Aberystwyth, Ceredigion SY23 3DA, UK.

Feminisation of amphipod crustaceans is associated with the presence of at least three microsporidian parasites and one paramyxean parasite, suggesting that the ability to feminise has evolved multiple times in parasites of amphipods. Co-infection by a paramyxean with one of the putative microsporidian feminisers, Dictyocoela duebenum, has inspired the alternative hypothesis that all feminisation of amphipods is caused by paramyxea and that all microsporidian associations with feminisation are due to co-infection with paramyxea (Short et al., 2012).

The cumulative damage index method: a new method for evaluating the effectiveness of control measures for Plutella xylostella (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae).

Pest Manag Sci 2015 Apr 21;71(4):632-41. Epub 2014 Nov 21.

Key Lab of Integrated Crop Pest Management of Shandong Province, College of Agronomy and Plant Protection, Qingdao Agricultural University, Qingdao, China.

Background: All previously and currently used methods for effectiveness evaluation of control measures for the diamondback moth (DBM) do not simultaneously take the actual damage and population size into consideration. Here, we propose a new method, the cumulative damage index method, in which the number of larvae and their amount of food consumption are simultaneously included in the calculation of the theoretical cumulative damage index (T) and actual cumulative damage index (A). Evaluation was based on the reduced degree of damage calculated according to indexes T and A. Read More

Paramyxean-microsporidian co-infection in amphipods: is the consensus that Microsporidia can feminise their hosts presumptive?

Int J Parasitol 2012 Jun 16;42(7):683-91. Epub 2012 May 16.

Institute of Marine Sciences, School of Biological Sciences, University of Portsmouth, Ferry Road, Portsmouth, Hampshire PO4 9LY, UK.

The current consensus is that Microsporidia belong to a select group of parasites capable of causing both intersexuality and complete sex reversal in their hosts. Indeed, species such as Nosema granulosis and Dictyocoela duebenum, which infect amphipod crustaceans, are regularly referred to as 'feminising microsporidians'. This categorisation is based on a combination of findings: that these species are vertically transmitted and occur at a high prevalence of infection in intersex and female amphipods, that infected amphipod populations are female-biased, and that infected females have significantly female-biased broods with no concurrent increase in mortality.

Invertebrates mount a sophisticated immune response with the potential to exhibit a form of immune memory through 'priming'. Increased immune protection following early exposure to bacteria has been found both later in life (within generation priming) and in the next generation (transgeneration priming) in a number of invertebrates. However, it is unclear how general immune priming is and whether immune priming occurs in response to different parasites, including viruses. Read More

Hydatid cysts occur most often in the liver, and affliction with multiple cysts is rare. We present the case of a 48-year-old woman with 55 hydatid cysts (47 in the liver, 5 in the right lung, and 3 in the left lung). Read More

[Identification of the causative agent of echinococcosis in the population of the South Urals].

Med Parazitol (Mosk) 2007 Oct-Dec(4):29-31

The topicality of the problem associated with echinococcosis granulosus in the South Urals is determined by its wide spread and a considerable economic damage made to this region by this invasion. The study was undertaken to reveal the intraspecific affiliation of Echinococcus granulosus that induces hydatid disease in the population of the South Urals. Samples for studies were taken from the fertile larval cysts obtained during intraoperative intervention in patients with hydatid disease. Read More

Pulmonary echinococcosis mimicking multiple lung metastasis of breast cancer: the role of fluoro-deoxy-glucose positron emission tomography.

World J Surg Oncol 2008 Jan 21;6. Epub 2008 Jan 21.

Department of General Surgery, GATA Haydarpasa Istanbul, Turkey.

Background: Echinococcosis is still a serious problem particularly in endemic areas such as South and Central America, Mediterranean countries, and Russia. Furthermore, hydatid cysts of the lung are often indistinguishable from a variety of other pulmonary lesions such as lung tumors

Case Presentation: We herein present a 56 year old woman with breast cancer who presented with bilateral pulmonary nodules due to echinococcosis granulosis that mimicked metastatic breast cancer to the lung.

Conclusion: During the evaluation of the malignancies which could metastasize to the lung, it must be kept in mind that the appearance of bilateral multiple pulmonary masses can also be the sign of a pulmonary echinococcosis especially in endemic areas. Read More
