Improving agricultural production of domestic rabbits in Serbia by follow-up study of their parasitic infections.

Iran J Vet Res 2018 ;19(4):290-297

Department of Parasitology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Belgrade, 11000 Beograd, Serbia.

A study was made on the prevalence of some parasitic infections appearing in domestic rabbits obtained from individual breeders in Serbia in order to improve the agricultural production of these animals. Aside from economic reasons (meat production and reproduction) rabbits are bred for the research purposes, and races are kept as household pets. For these reasons, among others, it is important to gain knowledge of medical culprits including causes of parasitic diseases that compromise their health, well-being and cause economic losses.

Neglected tropical diseases in children: An assessment of gaps in research prioritization.

PLoS Negl Trop Dis 2019 Jan 29;13(1):e0007111. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Division of Emergency Medicine, Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America.

Background: Despite the known burden of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) on child health, there is limited information on current efforts to increase pediatric therapeutic options. Our objective was to quantify and characterize research activity and treatment availability for NTDs in children in order to inform the prioritization of future research efforts.

Methodology/principal Findings: We conducted a review of the World Health Organization's (WHO) International Clinical Trials Registry Platform to assess research activity for NTDs. Read More

Pattern of sexually transmitted infections: A profile from a rural- and tribal-based sexually transmitted infections clinic of a tertiary care hospital of Eastern India.

J Family Med Prim Care 2018 Sep-Oct;7(5):1042-1046

Department of Dermatology, B S Medical College, Bankura, West Bengal, India.

Introduction: Prevalence of Sexually transmitted infections (STI's) in developing nations is very high where the measures for STI treatment and prevention are limited. Enormous variation in clinical presentation make STI's very difficult to be studied epidemiologically. To know the exact prevalence of STI's is very important for a region or community for planning preventive strategies. Read More

Department of Family Medicine, Division of Medicine, Sengkang General Hospital, Singapore 544886, Singapore.

Scabies is a significant public health condition in long-term care facilities, plaguing even developed countries. Although treatments are available, eradication and control of scabies cases still remain a challenge due to delays in diagnosis and difficulties in maintaining preventive and surveillance measures. Prompt treatment of patients and their contacts that are affected, along with concomitant education of health staff and family members, are paramount. Read More

Exploration of a simplified clinical examination for scabies to support public health decision-making.

PLoS Negl Trop Dis 2018 12 27;12(12):e0006996. Epub 2018 Dec 27.

The Kirby Institute, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.

Introduction: In most settings, the diagnosis of scabies is reliant on time-consuming and potentially intrusive clinical examination of all accesible regions of skin. With the recent recognition of scabies as a neglected tropical disease by the World Health Organization there is a need for standardised approaches to disease mapping to define populations likely to benefit from intervention, and to measure the impact of interventions. Development and validation of simplified approaches to diagnose scabies would facilitate these efforts. Read More

Menzies School of Health Research, Charles Darwin University, Casuarina, Australia.

We conducted a systematic review of the treatment, prevention and public health control of skin infections including impetigo, scabies, crusted scabies and tinea in resource-limited settings where skin infections are endemic. The aim is to inform strategies, guidelines and research to improve skin health in populations that are inequitably affected by infections of the skin and the downstream consequences of these. The systematic review is reported according to the PRISMA statement. Read More

Population pharmacokinetics of oral ivermectin in venous plasma and dried blood spots in healthy volunteers.

Br J Clin Pharmacol 2019 Mar 24;85(3):626-633. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Division of Clinical Pharmacology & Toxicology, University Hospital Basel, Switzerland.

Aims: The anthelminthic ivermectin is receiving new attention as it is being repurposed for new indications such as mass drug administrations for the treatment of scabies or in malaria vector control. As its pharmacokinetics are still poorly understood, we aimed to characterize the population pharmacokinetics of ivermectin in plasma and dried blood spots (DBS), a sampling method better suited to field trials, with special focus on the influence of body composition and enterohepatic circulation.

Methods: We performed a clinical trial in 12 healthy volunteers who each received a single oral dose of 12 mg ivermectin, and collected peripheral venous and capillary DBS samples. Read More

International Foundation for Dermatology, London, United Kingdom.

Human scabies, a common infestation, has a worldwide distribution with a variable impact and presentation depending on the clinical situation. In developed, high-income settings, health institution and residential home outbreaks challenge health and social care services. In resource-poor settings, it is the downstream sequelae of staphylococcal and streptococcal bacteraemia, induced by scratching, which have a significant impact on the long-term health of communities.

Increase of scabies in Germany and development of resistant mites? Evidence and consequences.

J Dtsch Dermatol Ges 2019 01 27;17(1):15-23. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

Institute of Microbiology and Hygiene, Charité - University Medicine, Berlin, Germany.

Scabies has been diagnosed surprisingly frequently in Germany in recent years, and the use of acaricides has risen markedly. Present figures indicate an increase in the prevalence/incidence of scabies, but do not prove or quantify it for the following reasons: (a) scabies is not a notifiable disease in Germany; (b) the diagnosis is not always confirmed lege artis by means of light microscopy or dermatoscopy (which may lead to a comparatively high proportion of false‐positive diagnoses due to the low overall prevalence of scabies); (c) repeated treatments of the same patient and treatment of contact persons are included in the total number of prescriptions. Therefore, there are no valid data on disease occurrence, either in the current situation or from previous periods. Read More

Investigation of a Scabies Outbreak in Drought-Affected Areas in Ethiopia.

Trop Med Infect Dis 2018 Oct 29;3(4). Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Amhara Regional Health Bureau, P.O. Box 744, Amhara, Ethiopia.

The impact of the severe drought in Ethiopia, attributed to El Niño weather conditions, has led to high levels of malnutrition that have, in turn, increased the potential for disease outbreaks. In 2015, Ethiopia faced a scabies outbreak in drought-affected areas where there was a shortage of safe water for drinking and personal hygiene. Following a house-to-house census to assess the prevalence of scabies, a detailed study was conducted looking at the disease burden. Read More

Crusted (Norwegian) Scabies: Nine-Month Course With Iatrogenic Immunosuppression.

J Drugs Dermatol 2018 Oct;17(10):1131-1133

Crusted scabies (CS) is a highly infectious hyperinfestation variant of scabies with up to millions of Sarcoptes scabiei mites present on the skin surface. Diagnostic clues include intense itching and thick crusting especially on the face, groin, and buttocks, although variable presentations may mimic other dermatoses. CS has been associated with immunosuppression including the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and lymphoreticular malignancies. Read More

Ivermectin does not interfere with seminal and hormonal parameters in male rabbits.

Theriogenology 2019 Jan 27;124:32-38. Epub 2018 Sep 27.

Department of Pathology, School of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science, University of São Paulo, Av. Prof. Dr. Orlando Marques de Paiva, 87, São Paulo, SP, 05508-270, Brazil.

Ivermectin (IVM) is a macrocyclic lactone used as a broad spectrum antiparasitic agent against nematodes and arthropods. It is mainly used in the control of parasitic infections of domestic animals, and recently has been used in humans to treat onchocerciasis, scabies, and pediculosis. In mammals, evidence has indicated that macrocyclic lactones interact with gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-mediated chloride channels. Read More
