Cystic Echinococcosis of the Bone: A European Multicenter Study.

Am J Trop Med Hyg 2019 Jan 28. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Unit of Infectious and Tropical Diseases, IRCCS San Matteo Hospital Foundation, Pavia, Italy.

Cystic echinococcosis (CE) is a zoonosis caused by the larval stage of the tapeworm . In humans, the infection induces the formation of parasitic cysts mostly in the liver and lungs, but virtually any organ can be affected. Cystic echinococcosis of the bone is one of the rarest forms of the disease, yet it is also extremely debilitating for patients and hard to manage for clinicians. Read More

Evaluation of cross-reactivity to Taenia hydatigena and Echinococcus granulosus in the enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blot assay for the diagnosis of porcine cysticercosis.

Parasit Vectors 2019 Jan 24;12(1):57. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Center for Global Health Tumbes, Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, Tumbes, Peru.

Background: Taenia solium is an important zoonotic parasite that infects humans as definitive host (taeniasis) and pigs as intermediate host (cysticercosis). Serological diagnosis of porcine cysticercosis is limited to antigen detection using ELISA, which is known to cross-react with other Taenia species, and antibody detection using the lentil-lectin glycoprotein enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blot (LLGP EITB), which has not been adequately evaluated for cross-reactivity to other parasites. Field studies suggest that the GP50 diagnostic band of the LLGP EITB may cross-react to Taenia hydatigena, a common non-zoonotic parasitic infection of pigs. Read More

Estimating the association between being seropositive for cysticercosis and the prevalence of epilepsy and severe chronic headaches in 60 villages of rural Burkina Faso.

PLoS Negl Trop Dis 2019 01 24;13(1):e0007101. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Souro SANOU, Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso.

Background: Individuals diagnosed with neurocysticercosis often present with epilepsy and sometimes with progressively worsening severe chronic headaches (WSCH). While cross-sectional associations between seropositivity to cysticercal antigens and epilepsy have been reported, few large scale studies have been conducted in West Africa and none have measured the association between seropositivity to cysticercal antigens and headaches. This study aimed at filling these knowledge gaps by estimating the strength of the cross-sectional association between seropositivity to cysticercal antigens and the prevalence of epilepsy and WSCH in 60 villages of Burkina Faso, West Africa.

Tierarztl Prax Ausg K Kleintiere Heimtiere 2018 Dec 18;46(6):403-409. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

The lifecycle of the fox tapeworm comprises primarily red foxes (definitive hosts) and small rodents (intermediate hosts). Dogs can additionally be definitive hosts and in rare cases they act as accidental or dead-end host species by developing alveolar echinococcosis (AE) primarily in the liver. This report describes a clinically apparent AE that appeared 5 weeks postpartum in a 3-year-old Labrador Retriever. Read More

Etanercept to Control Inflammation in the Treatment of Complicated Neurocysticercosis.

Am J Trop Med Hyg 2019 Jan 2. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Laboratory of Parasitic Diseases, National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland.

Manifestations of neurocysticercosis (NCC) are primarily due to host inflammatory responses directed at drug-damaged or naturally degenerating metacestodes (cysts) of the tapeworm . Prolonged high-dose corticosteroids are frequently required to control this inflammation in complicated disease, often causing severe side effects. Studies evaluating alternatives to corticosteroids are lacking. Read More

Department of Parasitology, Pasteur Institute of Iran, Tehran, Iran.

Hydatidosis is one of the most important diseases common between animals and human beings. Caused by Echinococcus granulosus tapeworm, the disease has a global epidemic. The serological diagnostic tests that are now utilized to confirm the imaging approaches have some drawbacks such as low sensitivity and cross-reaction with the serum of the patients infected with other parasites.

Am J Trop Med Hyg 2019 Feb;100(2):314-322

Department of International Health, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, Maryland.

The pork tapeworm, , is among the leading causes of preventable epilepsy in the world and is common in rural areas of developing countries where sanitation is limited and pigs have access to human feces. Prior studies in rural villages of Peru have observed clusters of cysticercosis among pigs that live near human tapeworm carriers. Such spatial analyses, however, have been limited by incomplete participation and substandard diagnostic tests. Read More

Recombinant α- and β-tubulin from Echinococcus granulosus: expression, purification and polymerization.

Parasite 2018 5;25:62. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

National Institute of Parasitic Diseases, Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Key Laboratory of Parasite and Vector Biology, MOH, National Center for International Research on Tropical Diseases, WHO Collaborating Centre for Tropical Diseases, Shanghai 200025, People's Republic of China.

Echinococcosis, which causes a high disease burden and is of great public health significance, is caused by the larval stage of Echinococcus species. It has been suggested that tubulin is the target of benzimidazoles, the only drugs for the treatment of echinococcosis.

The ectodomains of the lymphocyte scavenger receptors CD5 and CD6 interact with tegumental antigens from Echinococcus granulosus sensu lato and protect mice against secondary cystic echinococcosis.

PLoS Negl Trop Dis 2018 11 30;12(11):e0006891. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Immunoreceptors del Sistema Innat i Adaptatiu, Institut d'Investigacions Biomèdiques August Pi i Sunyer (IDIBAPS), Barcelona, Spain.

Background: Scavenger Receptors (SRs) from the host's innate immune system are known to bind multiple ligands to promote the removal of non-self or altered-self targets. CD5 and CD6 are two highly homologous class I SRs mainly expressed on all T cells and the B1a cell subset, and involved in the fine tuning of activation and differentiation signals delivered by the antigen-specific receptors (TCR and BCR, respectively), to which they physically associate. Additionally, CD5 and CD6 have been shown to interact with and sense the presence of conserved pathogen-associated structures from bacteria, fungi and/or viruses. Read More

Acta Parasitol 2018 Dec;63(4):784-790

Department of Veterinary Parasitology, Nagpur Veterinary College, Nagpur, Maharashtra 440006, India.

Porcine cysticercosis, caused by metacestodes of Taenia solium is an important emerging zoonotic disease with public health and economic significance. Pigs acquire the disease through consumption of Taenia solium eggs excreted by human tapeworm carriers. The present study was conducted to investigate the prevalence of porcine cysticercosis in Nagpur and Mumbai region of Maharashtra, India by P/M examination of carcasses followed by histopathology of affected organs in infected animals and molecular identification of cysts for confirmation.

Département des Invertébrés, Muséum d'histoire naturelle, CP 6434, CH-1211 Genève 6, Switzerland..

Reptilian fauna of Australia is extraordinarily rich and diverse, but very little is known about parasites of reptiles, including proteocephalid cestodes of the genus Ophiotaenia La Rue, 1911. In the present survey, data on these parasites are summarised for the first time based on detailed evaluation of all available type and voucher specimens. This survey includes five named species, with four species redescribed, namely O. Read More

Echinococcus granulosus hydatid cyst location is modified by Fasciola hepatica infection in cattle.

Parasit Vectors 2018 Oct 10;11(1):542. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Escuela de Medicina Veterinaria, Facultad de Ciencias de la Vida, Universidad Andres Bello, Santiago, Chile.

Background: Natural parasite infection occurs in wild and domestics animals with more than one parasite species at the same time, generating an infection called polyparasitism. Cystic echinococcosis reports are usually based only on infection with Echinoccocus granulosus leaving aside other internal parasitoses that could modulate both the immune response and pathogenesis of the natural infection. Fasciola hepatica is another cosmopolitan parasite in ruminants with a similar distribution to E. Read More
