National Institute of Parasitic Diseases, Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention; WHO Collaborating Center for Tropical Diseases; Key Laboratory of Parasite and Vector Biology, National Health Commission; National Center for International Research on Tropical Diseases, Ministry of Science and Technology, Shanghai 200025, China.

This article analyzes recent progresses on health education and health promotion targeting echinococcosis control in the major endemic foci of China, and describes the problems, including lack of human echinococcosis control knowledge, low human health literacy levels, incomplete establishment of health promotion mode, and urgent efforts to achieve the goal of Health for All. In addition, the feasible measures and strategies on health literacy promotion for echinococcosis control are discussed in combination with the national health literacy promotion strategy according to Healthy China 2030.

Activity of Thymus capitatus essential oil components against in vitro cultured Echinococcus multilocularis metacestodes and germinal layer cells.

Parasitology 2019 Apr 12:1-12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

Institute of Parasitology, Vetsuisse Faculty, University of Berne,CH-3012 Berne,Switzerland.

The essential oil (EO) of Thymus capitatus, seven fractions (F1-F7) obtained from silica gel chromatography, and several pure EO components were evaluated with respect to in vitro activities against Echinococcus multilocularis metacestodes and germinal layer (GL) cells. Attempts to evaluate physical damage in metacestodes by phosphoglucose isomerase (PGI) assay failed because EO and F1-F7 interfered with the PGI-activity measurements. A metacestode viability assay based on Alamar Blue, as well as transmission electron microscopy, demonstrated that exposure to EO, F2 and F4 impaired metacestode viability. Read More

Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale della Sardegna "G. Pegreffi", Sassari, Italy.

Cystic echinococcosis (CE) is a complex zoonosis with domestic and sylvatic life-cycles, involving different intermediate and definitive host species. Many previous studies have highlighted the lack of a surveillance system for CE, its persistence in Italy, and endemicity in several Italian regions. Because of the absence of a uniform surveillance program for both humans and animals, disease occurrence is widely underestimated. Read More

Cestode parasites cause neglected diseases, such as echinococcosis and cysticercosis, which represent a significant problem in human and animal health. Benzimidazoles and praziquantel are the only available drugs for chemotherapy and it is therefore important to identify new alternative drugs against cestode parasites. Histone deacetylases (HDACs) are validated drug targets for the treatment of cancer and other diseases, including neglected diseases. Read More

Transhepatic-intrahepatic branches of the portal vein catheterization for ex vivo liver resection and autotransplantation: Two case reports of novel approach to perfuse the liver.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Mar;98(11):e14706

Department of Liver Surgery and Liver Transplantation Center, West China Hospital of Sichuan University, Chengdu, PR China.

Rationale: There has been increased use of ex vivo liver resection and autotransplantation (ERAT) for treatment of end-stage hepatic alveolar echinococcosis (HAE). Rapid perfusion of the autograft in bench resection is always required to reduce the warm ischemia time (WIT) and to protect the function of the remnant liver. Nevertheless, the severe invasion of the portal hepatis sometimes makes it impossible to find a usable inflow rapidly and the process of perfusion could be delayed. Read More

Department of Surgery, Hadassah Medical Center, Jerusalem, Israel.

Cystic echinococcosis (CE) is a widely endemic helminthic disease caused by infection with the Echinococcus granulosus tapeworm. Following ingestion of eggs, hydatid cysts develop, most frequently in the liver and lungs, but occasionally in other organs. Infection of the pancreas by hydatid cysts is very rare, even in endemic areas. Read More
