  • Potential Use of Mycobacterium paragordonae for Antimycobacterial Drug Screening Systems. [Journal Article]
    J Microbiol. 2023 Jan 31 [Online ahead of print]Cha GY, Seo H, … Kim BJ
  • Our recent genome-based study indicated that Mycobacterium paragordonae (Mpg) has evolved to become more adapted to an intracellular lifestyle within free-living environmental amoeba and its enhanced intracellular survival within Acanthamoeba castellanii was also proved. Here, we sought to investigate potential use of Mpg for antimycobacterial drug screening systems. Our data showed that Mpg is m…
  • Amebic liver abscess by Entamoeba histolytica. [Review]
    World J Clin Cases. 2022 Dec 26; 10(36):13157-13166.Usuda D, Tsuge S, … Sugita M
  • Amebic liver abscesses (ALAs) are the most commonly encountered extraintestinal manifestation of human invasive amebiasis, which results from Entamoeba histolytica (E. histolytica) spreading extraintestinally. Amebiasis can be complicated by liver abscess in 9% of cases, and ALAs led to almost 50000 fatalities worldwide in 2010. Although there have been fewer and fewer cases in the past several y…
  • StatPearls: Amebic Colitis [BOOK]

  • Amebic colitis results from invasive infection of the colonic mucosa by Entamoeba histolytica (E. histolytica).[1] Losch first reported disease due to E. histolytica in 1875; he found amoebas in colonic ulcers at autopsy and showed that the disease could be experimentally induced in vivo by rectal inoculation with human feces. Work by other scientists showed that the amoeba was the cause of the d…
  • Amebic liver abscess: Clinico-radiological findings and interventional management. [Review]
    World J Radiol. 2022 Aug 28; 14(8):272-285.Priyadarshi RN, Kumar R, Anand U
  • In its classic form, amebic liver abscess (ALA) is a mild disease, which responds dramatically to antibiotics and rarely requires drainage. However, the two other forms of the disease, i.e., acute aggressive and chronic indolent usually require drainage. These forms of ALA are frequently reported in endemic areas. The acute aggressive disease is particularly associated with serious complications,…
  • Epidemiology of the first seven years of national surveillance of amoebic liver abscesses in Mexico. [Journal Article]
    Parasitol Int. 2023 Feb; 92:102678.Bello-López JM, Cruz-Cruz C, … Durán-Manuel EM
  • The epidemiological behaviour of the main extraintestinal complication due to E. histolytica (amoebic liver abscess, ALA) has been little explored in developing countries. Since Mexico meets the characteristics to be considered as endemic, the aim of this work was to analyze the national surveillance data (seven years) of ALA issued by the General Directorate of Epidemiology. An analysis of cases…
  • StatPearls: Amebic Liver Abscess [BOOK]

  • Amebiasis is a parasitic infection caused by the protozoan, Entamoeba histolytica; transmitted through fecal-oral route. The infection can manifest ranging from an asymptomatic state to multiple complications associated with liver abscesses. Amebic liver abscess is the most common extraintestinal manifestation of amebiasis. Men between the ages of 18 and 50 are most commonly affected. Areas with …
  • Amoebic Liver Abscess: A disease native to Oman? [Journal Article]
    Sultan Qaboos Univ Med J. 2022 May; 22(2):253-256.Pandak N, Golchinheydari S, … Khamis F
  • CONCLUSIONS: The data suggests that ALA is endemic to Oman, considering the high number of local patients and lack of travel abroad in this population. As the number of patients treated for ALA is rather small, it can be concluded that the occurrence of ALA is much lower in Oman than in other endemic areas. The majority of patients had no prior symptomatic infections; thus, a method of control involves screening to prevent amoebic spread.
  • Free-living amoebae in an oil refinery wastewater treatment facility. [Journal Article]
    Sci Total Environ. 2022 Sep 15; 839:156301.Andalib S, Mohammad Rahimi H, … Karanis P
  • Free Living Amoebae (FLA) are ubiquitous microorganisms reported from harsh environmental conditions. Oil refinery facilities consume vast volumes of water during their processes, generating a large amount of wastewater. The present study aimed to evaluate the wastewater treatment process in an oil refinery wastewater treatment facility (ORWWTF) for the presence of FLA. Water samples were collect…
  • Fever in the Returning Traveler. [Review]
    Dtsch Arztebl Int. 2022 06 07; 119(22):400-407.Paquet D, Jung L, … Lübbert C
  • CONCLUSIONS: The differential diagnosis can be narrowed by thorough history-taking with particular attention to the patient's travel route, combined with a good knowledge of the geographic spread and incubation times of the main tropical diseases. Algorithms help clinicians to focus the diagnostic work-up and select the appropriate further laboratory tests and diagnostic procedures.
  • A rare case of extraintestinal amebiasis. [Case Reports]
    BMC Infect Dis. 2022 Apr 11; 22(1):364.Fu B, Wang J, Fu X
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this patient, multiple extraintestinal amebic infections in the absence of clinically confirmed intestinal amebiasis or amebic liver abscess are rare and pose diagnostic challenges. The disseminated amebiasis has significantly increased the mortality. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment may reduce the mortality of disseminated amebiasis.
  • Prevalence of Amoebiasis and Associated Complications in India: A Systematic Review. [Meta-Analysis]
    Acta Parasitol. 2022 Jun; 67(2):947-961.Gupta P, Singh KK, … Salam N
  • CONCLUSIONS: Amoebiasis remains a significant public health issue in India responsible for diarrheal diseases causing significant morbidity and mortality. Entamoeba histolytica is the principle protozoan parasite associated with amoebiasis. Public health efforts should be directed towards its control and better diagnostic methods should be employed for distinguishing between pathogenic and non-pathogenic species of Entamoeba.
