Implications of soils around domestic water points in the spread of intestinal parasites in the city of Yaounde (Cameroon).

J Water Health 2019 Apr;17(2):318-328

Laboratory of Hydrobiology and Environment, Faculty of Science, University of Yaounde I, P.O box, 812 Yaounde, Cameroun E-mail:

To determine the role of soils in dissemination of enteric protozoan cysts and intestinal eggs and/or larvae of helminths, a study was carried out on muddy soils around springs and wells of six districts in Yaounde, Cameroon from February to July 2015. Protozoan cysts and helminth eggs and larvae were observed microscopically after concentration by standard scientific methods. Flagellated enteric protozoa cysts were detected at an average density of 245 ± 145 cysts/L for Giardia intestinalis, 308 ±190 cysts/L for Chilomastix mesnili, 105 ± 106 cysts/L for Enteromonas hominis and 96 ± 118 cysts/L for Retortamonas intestinalis.

Department of Surgery, Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra Northwell, Cohen Children's Medical Center, 269-1 76th Ave, Queens, NY 11040, United States.

Introduction: Negative appendectomy rate (NAR) is a quality metric used in the surgical management of appendicitis. The rates of negative appendectomy (NA) in children range anywhere from 1% to 40% in the literature. Many reports do not provide clear pathological definitions for either appendicitis or NA on which they base their calculation of NAR. Read More

Ectosymbiotic bacterial microbiota densely colonize the surface of thelastomatid nematodes in the gut of the wood-feeding cockroach Panesthia angustipennis.

FEMS Microbiol Ecol 2019 Feb;95(2)

School of Life Science and Technology, Tokyo Institute of Technology, 2-12-1-W3-48 Ookayama, Meguro-ku, Tokyo 152-8550, Japan.

Cockroaches generally harbor thelastomatid nematodes (pinworms) in their gut. In this study, we discovered that the surfaces of two undescribed thelastomatid species in the hindgut of the wood-feeding cockroach Panesthia angustipennis were consistently and densely colonized by bacteria. Epifluorescence microscopy using 4',6-diamidino-2-phenylindole and transmission electron microscopy revealed that several distinct morphotypes of bacteria covered almost the entire body surface of the nematodes in single or multiple layers.

Patterns of genetic variation among populations can reveal the evolutionary history of species. Pinworm parasites are highly host specific and form strong co-evolutionary associations with their primate hosts. Here, we describe the genetic variation observed in four Trypanoxyuris species infecting different howler and spider monkey subspecies in Central America to determine if historical dispersal processes and speciation in the host could explain the genetic patterns observed in the parasites.

Regardless of whether clinical signs were present or absent, the gross observation of ceco-colonic thickening corresponded histologically to pleocellular typhlocolitis with mucosal hyperplasia and lamina proprial multinucleated cells. A subset of affected sentinels exhibited granulomatous serositis and hepatosplenic necrosis with multinucleated cells. Read More

Intestinal parasitism and nutritional status among indigenous children from the Argentinian Atlantic Forest: Determinants of enteroparasites infections in minority populations.

Acta Trop 2018 Nov 17;187:248-256. Epub 2018 Aug 17.

Department of Environmental and Global Health, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32610, USA; Emerging Pathogens Institute, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32610, USA.

Sympatric Parasites Have Similar Host-Associated, but Asynchronous, Patterns of Diversification.

Am Nat 2018 Sep 11;192(3):E106-E119. Epub 2018 Jul 11.

Parasitism is a common symbiotic interaction across diverse natural systems. Using a comparative evolutionary approach, we investigated the contributions of both host phylogeny and abiotic factors toward diversification of phylogenetically independent endoparasites that inhabit essentially the same physical space. We tested for host-parasite and parasite-parasite phylogenetic concordance in western North American chipmunks (Rodentia: Sciuridae) and two distantly related species of pinworms (Nematoda: Oxyurida).

Intestinal parasites in public transport buses from the city of Diamantina, Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Res Rep Trop Med 2017 1;8:59-63. Epub 2017 Jun 1.

Department of Biological Sciences,

Background: Intestinal parasites' eggs, larvae, or cysts can be carried in public transport buses, and contribute to the increased incidence of diseases. This study aimed to detect biological forms of intestinal parasites in samples from public buses in the town of Diamantina, Minas Gerais, in order to know the local situation and propose interventions to improve public health.

Materials And Methods: In November 2014, six samples were obtained in buses of the two stations by using Graham method, in duplicate, by affixing a 6×5 cm clear tape, six times on each collection site of the bus, in an area of ~30 cm. Read More

Hypothesis: Multiple sclerosis is caused by three-hits, strictly in order, in genetically susceptible persons.

Mult Scler Relat Disord 2018 Aug 4;24:157-174. Epub 2018 Jul 4.

School of Medicine, University of Glasgow, UK.

Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, progressive and debilitating neurological disease which, despite extensive study for over 100 years, remains of enigmatic aetiology. Drawn from the epidemiological evidence, there exists a consensus that there are environmental (possibly infectious) factors that contribute to disease pathogenesis that have not yet been fully elucidated. Here we propose a three-tiered hypothesis: 1) a clinic-epidemiological model of multiple sclerosis as a rare late complication of two sequential infections (with the temporal sequence of infections being important); 2) a proposal that the first event is helminthic infection with Enterobius Vermicularis, and the second is Epstein Barr Virus infection; and 3) a proposal for a testable biological mechanism, involving T-Cell exhaustion for Epstein-Barr Virus protein LMP2A.

Int J Parasitol Parasites Wildl 2017 Dec 20;6(3):320-329. Epub 2017 Sep 20.

Institute for Parasitology, University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, Hannover, Buenteweg 17, 30559 Hannover, Germany.

Non-human primates of South-East Asia remain under-studied concerning parasite epidemiology and co-infection patterns. Simultaneously, efforts in conservation demand knowledge of parasite abundance and biodiversity in threatened species. The Endangered proboscis monkey, , a primate flagship species for conservation in Borneo, was investigated in the present study. Read More
