  • Case Report: Amphotericin B and Mefloquine as a Salvage Treatment of Alveolar Echinococcosis. [Case Reports]
    Am J Trop Med Hyg. 2023 Jan 30 [Online ahead of print]Jelicic K, Papic N, … Vince A
  • Alveolar echinococcosis is an emerging zoonotic disease caused by the parasite Echinococcus multilocularis. Most patients are diagnosed at a late stage, when lifelong treatment with benzimidazoles is required to stop disease progression. However, for patients who do not tolerate benzimidazole therapy, there are no alternatives. Here, we present a patient with advanced alveolar echinococcosis who …
  • Real-time multiplex PCR for human echinococcosis and differential diagnosis. [Journal Article]
    Parasite. 2023; 30:3.Knapp J, Lallemand S, … Millon L
  • Molecular identification of rare human infectious pathogens appears to be one of the most relevant current methods for rapid diagnosis and management of patients. PCR techniques, in particular real-time quantitative PCR, are best suited for the detection of DNA from the pathogens, even at low concentrations. Echinococcosis infections are due to helminths of the Echinococcus genus, with closely re…
  • [Diagnostic delaying factors in hepatic alveolar echinococcosis]. [Journal Article]
    Dtsch Med Wochenschr. 2023 Jan 23 [Online ahead of print]Joos N, Schmidberger J, … Kratzer W
  • CONCLUSIONS: The diagnostic clarification process of AE patients is lengthy and stressful. The psychological burden of a questionable malignant diagnosis is considerable. Early use of contrast-enhanced sonography and, if necessary, puncture of unclear hepatic masses helps to shorten the difficult diagnostic process.
  • Echinococcus multilocularis Calreticulin Interferes with C1q-Mediated Complement Activation. [Journal Article]
    Trop Med Infect Dis. 2023 Jan 07; 8(1)Xian S, Chen L, … Zhao L
  • As a zoonotic disease caused by Echinococcus multilocularis larvae, alveolar echinococcosis (AE) is one of the most severe forms of parasitic infection. Over a long evolutional process E. multilocularis has developed complex strategies to escape host immune attack and survive within a host. However, the mechanisms underlying immune evasion remain unclear. Here we investigated the binding activity…
  • Diagnostic and Management Perspectives in Alveolar Echinococcosis: Review of Literature. [Journal Article]
    Eurasian J Med. 2022 Dec; 54(Suppl1):10-15.Aydin F, Yalcin A, … Alper F
  • Alveolar echinococcosis is a life-threatening zoonotic disease caused by Echinococcus multilocularis. The disease usually primarily involves the liver and shows tumor-like growth. Early diagnosis of alveolar echinococcosis is difficult because the disease is usually asymptomatic in the early stages. Untreated cases are fatal and result in death within 10 years of liver involvement. In the diagnos…
  • Alveolar echinococcosis in immunocompromised hosts. [Review]
    Clin Microbiol Infect. 2022 Dec 15 [Online ahead of print]Autier B, Gottstein B, … Robert-Gangneux F
  • CONCLUSIONS: Patients who live in endemic areas should benefit from serology before onset of a long-term immunosuppressive therapy, even if the cost-benefit ratio has to be evaluated. Physicians should explain AE to immunocompromised patients and think about AE when finding a liver lesion. Further research should address gaps in knowledge of AE/IS. Especially, extensive and accurate records of AE cases have to be collected by multinational registries.
  • 7T Small Animal MRI Research for Hepatic Alveolar Echinococcosis. [Journal Article]
    Top Magn Reson Imaging. 2022 Dec 01; 31(6):53-59.Zhang G, Mou Y, … Bao H
  • CONCLUSIONS: Polyvesicular structure is a characteristic manifestation of hepatic alveolar echinococcosis in mice. The noninvasive monitoring of liver HAE in mice by 7T small animal MRI provides a visual basis for the diagnosis and treatment integration of HAE.
  • First detection of Echinococcus multilocularis in Bosnia and Herzegovina. [Journal Article]
    Int J Parasitol Parasites Wildl. 2022 Dec; 19:269-272.Omeragić J, Goletić T, … Alić A
  • Echinococcus multilocularis has been spreading through Central Eastern Europe but has not yet been reported in Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H). Recently, this parasite is confirmed in Croatia suggesting the movement of the parasite's distribution limit further south. Given that there is no surveillance or monitoring system for echinococcosis in B&H, our study was designed as a pilot study of E. mult…
  • Robotic Liver Surgery for Alveolar Echinococcosis: A Single-Centre Experience. [Journal Article]
    Pathogens. 2022 Oct 31; 11(11)Steinkraus KC, Jötten L, … Hüttner FJ
  • Alveolar echinococcosis (AE) is a rare disease caused by Echinococcosis multilocularis, which usually requires multidisciplinary management including surgery as the only curative approach. In recent years, minimally invasive strategies have been increasingly adopted for liver surgery. In particular, robotic surgery enables surgeons to perform even complex liver resections using a minimally invasi…
