Prevalence and characterization of hydatidosis in Najdi sheep slaughtered in Riyadh city, Saudi Arabia.

Saudi J Biol Sci 2018 Nov 9;25(7):1375-1379. Epub 2018 Apr 9.

Zoology Department, College of Science, King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Hydatidosis is considered to be one of the important zoonotic diseases and has a significant public health importance due to the difficulties of the diagnosis. Domestic animals act as intermediate hosts and the main reservoir for the disease in humans. The main purpose of this work therefore was to determine the prevalence of hydatidosis in Najdi sheep slaughtered in Riyadh city, Saudi Arabia. Read More

Oxfendazole: a promising agent for the treatment and control of helminth infections in humans.

Expert Rev Anti Infect Ther 2018 Dec 1. Epub 2018 Dec 1.

e Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health , 615 N. Wolfe Street, Baltimore , MD 21205 , USA.

Introduction: Oxfendazole (methyl [5-(phenylsulphinyl)-1H benzimidazole- 2-yl] carbamate) has a particularly long metabolic half-life in ruminants, and its metabolite fenbendazole also has anthelminthic action. A very limited number of drugs are available for the treatment of some zoonotic helminth infections, such as neurocysticercosis and echinococcosis. More recent work has expanded oxfendazole's non-clinical safety profile and demonstrated its safety and bioavailability in healthy human volunteers, thus advancing the possibility of a new and greatly needed option for antiparasitic treatment of geohelminths and tissue parasites.

Department of Pathology, Inonu University Faculty of Medicine, Malatya 244280, Turkey.

Intra-abdominal aggressive fibromatosis is a locally aggressive tumor mostly originating from the mesentery or retroperitoneal space, infiltrating adjacent tissues, and very rarely metastasizing to distant organs. There are only two case reports in the English language literature where intra-abdominal aggressive fibromatosis originated from the intestinal wall. In this study, we aimed to report a case of aggressive fibromatosis originating from the muscularis propria layer of the duodenum and invading pancreas. Read More
