School of Medicine, Level 2 Medical School North Building, The University of Adelaide, Frome Road, Forensic Science South Australia (FSSA), Adelaide, 5005, SA, Australia. Electronic address:

Strongyloidiasis is an infectious disease affecting approximately 30-100 million people globally. The main human pathogen is Strongyloides stercoralis which may cause a brief period of acute symptoms and signs after the initial infection, and then lapse into a chronic asymptomatic carrier state for decades due to the nematode's unique ability to autoinfect hosts. Immunosuppression from steroid therapy, T-lymphocytic viral (HTLV-1) infections, or a variety of underlying medical conditions may then result in dissemination and the highly lethal and infectious hyperinfection syndrome.

National Institutes of Health-National Institute for Research in Tuberculosis-International Center for Excellence in Research, Chennai, India 600031;

Coexistent helminth infections are known to modulate T cell and cytokine responses in latent infection with However, their role in modulating chemokine responses in latent tuberculosis (LTB) has not been explored. Because chemokines play a vital role in the protective immune responses in LTB, we postulated that coexistent helminth infection could modulate chemokine production in helminth-LTB coinfection. To test this, we measured the levels of a panel of CC and CXC chemokines at baseline and following mycobacterial Ag or mitogen stimulation in individuals with LTB with (LTB) or without (LTB) infection and in individuals without both infections, healthy controls (HC).

Rev Chilena Infectol 2018 Aug;35(4):445-447

Escuela de Medicina Humana, Universidad Científica del Sur, Lima, Perú.

Infection with Strongyloides stercoralis is a common parasitic infection in tropical and subtropical regions, including the Peruvian Amazon. The clinical manifestations are varied in patients with immunocompromised disease, and the systemic spread of the disease is frequent, compromising different organs and systems. Cutaneous manifestations are infrequent, being described in patients with some degree of immunosuppression. Read More

Coinfections between Persistent Parasitic Neglected Tropical Diseases and Viral Infections among Prisoners from Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America.

J Trop Med 2018 6;2018:7218534. Epub 2018 Nov 6.

Division of Prison Health, Geneva University Hospitals and University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland.

In Swiss prisons, more than 70% of detained people are foreigners and over one-third originate from sub-Saharan Africa or Latin America. These two regions are endemic for various tropical diseases and viral infections, which persist after migration to nonendemic countries. Parasitic infections (schistosomiasis; strongyloidiasis) and cooccurrent viral infections (HIV, hepatitis B (HBV), and hepatitis C (HCV)) are especially of concern for clinical care but have been neglected in empirical research.

ICBS- Instituto de Ciências Biológicas e da Saúde, UFMT- Universidade Federal de Mato Grosso, Barra do Garças, Mato Grosso, Brazil. Electronic address:

Strongyloidiasis is an intestinal parasitosis that occurs in humans infected by Strongyloides stercoralis mostly. At its acute phase, symptoms like constipation, diarrhea and abdominal pain can be observed, but become asymptomatic for a long time, until an immunosuppression will start a hyperinfection and the dissemination of the disease, prevalent on the elderly population in tropical countries. Ivermectina treatment is the currently choice for this disease, due to its great efficacy and the results reported. Read More

Seroepidemiological aspects of human infection by Strongyloides stercoralis in Alfenas, southern Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Rev Soc Bras Med Trop 2018 Nov-Dec;51(6):855-859

Laboratório de Diagnóstico de Parasitoses, Departamento de Parasitologia, Instituto de Ciências Biomédicas, Universidade Federal de Uberlândia, Uberlândia, MG, Brasil.

Introduction: In most Strongyloides stercoralis infected individuals, nematoidosis occurs asymptomatically, but in immunocompromised patients, it can cause hyperinfection. Serological techniques seem to be a good alternative for detecting this parasite.

Methods: The frequency of seropositivity for strongyloidiasis in Alfenas, MG, was estimated using the enzyme linked immunosorbent assay on blood samples, between May and August of 2015. Read More
