Evaluation of cross-reactivity to Taenia hydatigena and Echinococcus granulosus in the enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blot assay for the diagnosis of porcine cysticercosis.

Parasit Vectors 2019 Jan 24;12(1):57. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Center for Global Health Tumbes, Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, Tumbes, Peru.

Background: Taenia solium is an important zoonotic parasite that infects humans as definitive host (taeniasis) and pigs as intermediate host (cysticercosis). Serological diagnosis of porcine cysticercosis is limited to antigen detection using ELISA, which is known to cross-react with other Taenia species, and antibody detection using the lentil-lectin glycoprotein enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blot (LLGP EITB), which has not been adequately evaluated for cross-reactivity to other parasites. Field studies suggest that the GP50 diagnostic band of the LLGP EITB may cross-react to Taenia hydatigena, a common non-zoonotic parasitic infection of pigs. Read More

Heterozygous Pkhd1 mice develop cystic liver disease and proximal tubule ectasia that mimics radiographic signs of medullary sponge kidney.

Am J Physiol Renal Physiol 2019 Mar 2;316(3):F463-F472. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Department of Medicine, The University of Alabama at Birmingham , Birmingham, Alabama.

Heterozygosity for human polycystic kidney and hepatic disease 1 ( PKHD1) mutations was recently associated with cystic liver disease and radiographic findings resembling medullary sponge kidney (MSK). However, the relevance of these associations has been tempered by a lack of cystic liver or renal disease in heterozygous mice carrying Pkhd1 gene trap or exon deletions. To determine whether heterozygosity for a smaller Pkhd1 defect can trigger cystic renal disease in mice, we generated and characterized mice with the predicted truncating Pkhd1 mutation in a region corresponding to the middle of exon 20 cluster of five truncating human mutations (between PKHD1 and PKHD1).

Primary cilia are hair-like organelles that play crucial roles in vertebrate development, organogenesis, and when dysfunctional result in pleiotropic human genetic disorders called ciliopathies, characterized byoverlapping phenotypes, such as renal and hepatic cysts, skeletal defects, retinal degeneration, and CNS malformations. Primary cilia act as communication hubs to transfer extracellular signals into intracellular responses and are essentialfor Hedgehog (Hh) signal transduction in mammals. Despite the renewed interest in this ancient organelle of growing biomedical importance, the molecular mechanisms that trigger cilia formation, extension and ciliary signal transduction are still not fully understood.

Hepatic hydatid cyst - diagnose and treatment algorithm.

J Med Life 2018 Jul-Sep;11(3):203-209

"Carol Davila" Medical University, Bucharest.

the hydatic disease, caused by the larvae of Echinococcus granulosus, is a serious disease, potentially lethal, which can be found anywhere in the world, but especially in endemic areas such as the Mediterranean Basin, Australia, New Zealand, North Africa, Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Middle East and South America. The hydatic cyst is mainly found in the liver (75% of the cases), being asymptomatic in most cases and discovered accidentally on a routine abdominal ultrasound or an ultrasound performed for diagnosing other pathologies. The hepatic hydatid cyst therapy is multimodal, including medical, surgical, and, lately, minimally invasive techniques. Read More

Should Pediatricians Be Aware of Cystic Echinococcosis? A Literature Review.

J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr 2019 Feb;68(2):161-168

Department of Health Sciences, University of Florence, Anna Meyer Children's University Hospital, Florence, Italy.

Among parasitic hepatic cystic lesions, the most common disease is represented by cystic echinococcosis (CE), especially in high endemic countries. European epidemiology of CE in children is difficult to assess because of under-reporting but is increasing, because of high immigration flows from endemic countries and an increased awareness. Hydatidosis can be localized in every part of the body. Read More

Prenatal metformin treatment improves ovarian function in offspring of obese rats.

J Endocrinol 2018 Dec;239(3):325-338

Laboratorio de Alteraciones Reproductivas y Metabólicas, Centro de Neurobiología y Plasticidad Cerebral (CNPC), Instituto de Fisiología, Facultad de Ciencias, Universidad de Valparaíso, Valparaíso, Chile.

Maternal obesity causes a wide range of impairment in offspring, such as metabolic and reproductive dysfunctions. We previously demonstrated that female offspring of obese rats have increased serum estradiol levels during early postnatal life, probably because of decreased hepatic cytochrome P450 3A2 levels, which could lead to early onset of puberty and polycystic ovary condition in adulthood. Using metformin during pregnancy and nursing to improve the metabolic status of obese mothers could prevent the sequence of events that lead to an increase in postnatal serum estradiol levels in female offspring and, hence, reproductive dysfunction.

Visceral adiposity index for the diagnosis of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in premenopausal women with and without polycystic ovary syndrome.

Maturitas 2018 Oct 4;116:1-7. Epub 2018 Jul 4.

Department of Endocrinology and Diabetes, Hellenic Red Cross Hospital, Athens, Greece.

Objective: Visceral adiposity index (VAI), initially developed for the assessment of cardiometabolic risk, has been also proposed for the detection of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD); however, its diagnostic performance for NAFLD is still under investigation. We evaluated VAI as a marker of NAFLD and compared its diagnostic performance with that of three other NAFLD indices - fatty liver index (FLI), lipid accumulation product (LAP) and hepatic steatosis index (HSI) - in premenopausal women with and without polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) assessed for NAFLD by ultrasonography.

Design: Cross-sectional case-control study. Read More

PLoS One 2018 20;13(9):e0204073. Epub 2018 Sep 20.

Pathology Research Unit, Finnish Food Safety Authority, Evira, Helsinki, Finland.

Ciliopathies presenting as inherited hepatorenal fibrocystic disorders are rare in humans and in dogs. We describe here a novel lethal ciliopathy in Norwich Terrier puppies that was diagnosed at necropsy and characterized as diffuse cystic renal disease and hepatic fibrosis. The histopathological findings were typical for cystic renal dysplasia in which the cysts were located in the straight portion of the proximal tubule, and thin descending and ascending limbs of Henle's loop.
