Fatal outcome in a patient under immunosuppressant therapy infected with human T-lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1), cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Strongyloides stercoralis: a case report.

BMC Infect Dis 2020 Jul 2;20(1):470. Epub 2020 Jul 2.

Department of Hematology and Rheumatology, Kindai University School of Medicine, 377-2 Oonohigashi, Osaka-Sayama, Osaka, 589-0014, Japan.

Background: Strongyloidiasis is a gastrointestinal parasitic infection caused by percutaneous infection with Strongyloides stercoralis. Digestive symptoms such as diarrhea and abdominal pain are the main manifestation, but serious infections such as septicemia, purulent meningitis, and bacterial pneumonia may occur in individuals harboring human T-lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) or who are immunocompromised. Although coinfection with Strongyloides stercoralis and HTLV-1 can lead to chronic strongyloidiasis and a disseminated form of the disease, there is a high rate of response to the anthelmintic ivermectin.

Environmental Contamination by Dog Feces in Touristic Areas of Italy: Parasitological Aspects and Zoonotic Hazards.

Am J Trop Med Hyg 2020 Jun 29. Epub 2020 Jun 29.

Laboratorio di Parassitologia - Ospedale Didattico Veterinario, Dipartimento di Medicina Veterinaria, Università degli Studi di Sassari, Sassari, Italy.

Public spaces are common sites of fecal contamination which is concerning considering the prevalence rates of gastrointestinal pathogens carried by pets. Multiple pet-bound parasite species capable of infecting humans have previously been reported in fecal samples collected from urban areas around the globe, including Italy In addition, the presence of gastrointestinal parasites has recently been shown in pets from the island of Sardinia, a well-known touristic destination. For these reasons, this study aims to evaluate the level of fecal contamination of two of the most important cities on Sardinia. Read More

RIOK-2 protein is essential for egg hatching in a common parasitic nematode.

Int J Parasitol 2020 Jun 24. Epub 2020 Jun 24.

State Key Laboratory of Agricultural Microbiology, College of Veterinary Medicine, Huazhong Agricultural University, Wuhan, People's Republic of China. Electronic address:

The atypical protein kinase RIOK-2 is a non-ribosomal factor essential for ribosome maturation in yeast and human cells; however, little is known about its physiological role in pathogens. Our earlier work examined the expression profile of a RIOK-2 gene (Ss-riok-2) in Strongyloides stercoralis - a prevalent nematode parasite of dogs and humans. Herein, we demonstrate that Ss-RIOK-2 encodes a catalytically active kinase, distributed primarily in the cytoplasm of intestinal and hypodermal cells in transgenic larvae. Read More

The aim of this study was to assess if there was an increase to the number and proportion of persons tested for chronic strongyloidiasis, as a result of integrating Strongyloides stercoralis serology into the existing preventive health assessment system in four Aboriginal health services in endemic communities.

Methodology: A prospective, longitudinal, before-and-after intervention study was conducted in four Aboriginal health services in remote endemically infected communities in the Northern Territory, Australia, from July 2012 to December 2016. Read More

A Cross-Sectional Study of Seroprevalence of Strongyloidiasis in Pregnant Women (Peruvian Amazon Basin).

Pathogens 2020 May 4;9(5). Epub 2020 May 4.

Servicio de Enfermedades Infecciosas y Medicina Tropical, Hospital Regional de Loreto, 16001 Iquitos, Peru.

Strongyloidiasis is a soil-transmitted helminthiasis with a high global prevalence.

Objectives: We aimed to evaluate the prevalence of infection and assess strongyloidiasis serology as a screening technique in the Peruvian Amazon.

Material And Methods: We performed a cross-sectional study of strongyloidiasis in 300 pregnant women in Iquitos (Peru) from 1 May 2019 to 15 June 2019. Read More

Strongyloides stercoralis seropositivity is not associated with increased symptoms in a remote Aboriginal community.

Intern Med J 2020 May 5. Epub 2020 May 5.

Menzies School of Health Research, Charles Darwin University.

Background: Strongyloides stercoralis is a soil-transmitted helminth, endemic in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in northern Australia with estimates of prevalences up to 60%. Hyperinfection in the setting of immunosuppression is a rare but well-recognised cause of significant morbidity and mortality. However, the morbidity associated with chronic uncomplicated infection is less well characterised. Read More

Comparison of commercial and in-house real-time PCR platforms for 15 parasites and microsporidia in human stool samples without a gold standard.

Acta Trop 2020 Jul 3;207:105516. Epub 2020 May 3.

Institute for Medical Microbiology, Virology and Hygiene, University Medicine Rostock, Rostock, Germany; Department of Microbiology and Hospital Hygiene, Bundeswehr Hospital Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany. Electronic address:

Introduction: A test comparison of in-house and commercial real-time PCR (qPCR) kits for the detection of human parasites and microsporidia in stool samples was conducted without a gold standard. Three different commercial kits were included in the comparison, with a range of 3-15 different PCR targets, while 14 targets were covered by in-house testing, so not all 16 target pathogens were covered by all assays.

Methods: Residual materials from nucleic acid extractions of stool samples with very high likelihood of being colonized or infected by at least one enteric parasite species or microsporidia were tested. Read More
