  • Excretory/Secretory Proteome of Females and Males of the Hookworm Ancylostoma ceylanicum. [Journal Article]
    Pathogens. 2023 Jan 06; 12(1)Uzoechi SC, Rosa BA, … Mitreva M
  • The dynamic host-parasite mechanisms underlying hookworm infection establishment and maintenance in mammalian hosts remain poorly understood but are primarily mediated by hookworm's excretory/secretory products (ESPs), which have a wide spectrum of biological functions. We used ultra-high performance mass spectrometry to comprehensively profile and compare female and male ESPs from the zoonotic h…
  • Occurrence of gastrointestinal parasites in dogs from Cuiabá, Mato Grosso. [Journal Article]
    Rev Bras Parasitol Vet. 2023; 32(1):e012422.Souza CTV, Dorr AP, … Sousa VRF
  • Gastrointestinal parasitism by helminths and protozoa poses risks to animal and human health owing to clinical changes and transmission of potentially zoonotic agents. Thus, the present study aimed to verify the occurrence of gastrointestinal parasites in dogs from the municipality of Cuiabá, Mato Grosso, Brazil, using coproparasitological tests. From June 2021 to April 2022, faecal samples were …
  • Epidemiological studies of gastrointestinal parasites infecting dogs in Kwara Central, North Central, Nigeria. [Journal Article]
    Comp Immunol Microbiol Infect Dis. 2023 Jan 03; 93:101943.Ola-Fadunsin SD, Abdulrauf AB, … Akanbi OB
  • Dogs are the most cosmopolitan pets of humans and as such a means of transmitting zoonotic parasites to their owners. This study was designed to investigate the diversity, prevalence, pattern of infection, intensity of infections, and the risk factors associated with gastrointestinal parasites of dogs in Kwara Central, North Central, Nigeria. Three hundred and five clinically healthy dogs were sa…
  • Molecular evidence of hookworms in public environment of Bangladesh. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep. 2023 Jan 04; 13(1):133.Nath TC, Eom KS, … Lee D
  • Accurate diagnosis by precise identification of causative agents is essential for the effectiveness of any control interventions. Despite high zoonotic potential, available literature on hookworms in Bangladesh is still scarce and nonspecific. The objective of this study was to determine the occurrence of hookworms in public locations across northeastern Bangladesh (Sylhet metropolitan area) usin…
  • Soil-transmitted helminthic vaccines: Where are we now? [Review]
    Acta Trop. 2022 Dec 29; 239:106796.Wong MTJ, Anuar NS, … Tye GJ
  • It has been tested and proven that vaccination is still the best strategy to combat infectious diseases. However, to date, there are still no vaccines against human soil-transmitted helminthic diseases, despite their high prevalence globally, particularly in developing countries and rural areas with tropical climates and poor sanitation. The development of vaccines against helminths is riddled wi…
  • A Pilot Comparison of Fixatives for Hookworm Real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction. [Journal Article]
    Am J Trop Med Hyg. 2022 Dec 12 [Online ahead of print]Bradbury R, Inagaki K, … Hobbs CV
  • Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is increasingly used in the diagnosis of soil-transmitted helminth infections. Despite this, few studies have evaluated the impact of different fecal fixatives on the outcome of fecal helminth qPCR analysis, and none have evaluated the effect of commercial parasitology fixatives commonly used in diagnostic laboratories. We fixed dog feces containing Ancylostoma spp…
  • Parasitism of terrestrial gastropods by medically-important nematodes in Brazil. [Journal Article]
    Front Vet Sci. 2022; 9:1023426.Thiengo SC, Ramos-de-Souza J, … Gomes SR
  • An ample variety of parasitic associations are found between mollusks and nematodes, in which the mollusks may act as intermediate, paratenic or definitive hosts. Some free-living nematodes, in particular those of the order Rhabditida, are also found frequently in terrestrial mollusks. The present study reviews the results of the parasitological testing on samples of terrestrial mollusks conducte…
  • StatPearls: Hookworm [BOOK]
    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL)GhodeifAlhassan O.AOSheffield Teaching HospitalJainHanishHUn. of SyracuseBOOK
  • Hookworms are nematode parasites that usually get transmitted through infested soil. They usually affect the poorest individuals in tropical and subtropical areas. Two species are mainly responsible for human infections, Ancylostoma duodenale and Necator americanus. They can cause chronic infection of the intestinal tract, suck their host blood, leading to iron deficiency anemia in most cases. Mo…
  • Iron deficiency and soil-transmitted helminth infection: classic and neglected connections. [Review]
    Parasitol Res. 2022 Dec; 121(12):3381-3392.Ellwanger JH, Ziliotto M, … Chies JAB
  • Beyond participating in the oxygen transport by red blood cells, iron is an essential micronutrient and contributes to different physiological pathways and processes, such as cell proliferation, DNA repair, and other homeostatic functions. Iron deficiency affects millions of people, especially children and pregnant women. The consequences of iron deficiency are diverse, including inadequate child…
  • Oxidative Stress and High-Mobility Group Box 1 Assay in Dogs with Gastrointestinal Parasites. [Journal Article]
    Antioxidants (Basel). 2022 Aug 28; 11(9)Pugliese M, Napoli E, … Passantino A
  • This study aimed to evaluate the concentration of reactive oxidative metabolites, the antioxidant barrier, thiol groups of plasma compounds, and high-mobility group box 1 in shelter dogs naturally infected with helminths. In addition, the correlation between clinical signs and oxidative stress was investigated. Sixty-six (41 male and 25 female) adult mixed-breed dogs housed in a shelter with the …
  • Occurrence of Ancylostoma Caninum from a Gray Fox Urocyon Cinereoargenteus in Southeastern Mexico. [Journal Article]
    Helminthologia. 2022 Jun; 59(2):204-209.Panti-May JA, Hernández-Mena DI, … Vidal-Martínez VM
  • The hookworm Ancylostoma caninum is a common nematode of wild and domestic canids worldwide. In Mexico, there are few records of helminths in wild canids, especially in the southeastern region. The aim of the present study was to examine the helminths from a gray fox Urocyon cinereoargenteus in southeastern Mexico. A road-killed female gray fox found in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, was examined for h…
