  • Current epidemiological evidence for predisposition to high or low intensity human helminth infection: a systematic review. [Review]
  • PVParasit Vectors 2018 Jan 31; 11(1):65
  • Wright JE, Werkman M, … Anderson RM
  • CONCLUSIONS: This review has found consistent evidence of predisposition to heavy (and light) infection for certain human helminth species. However, further research is needed to identify reasons for the reported differences between demographic groups. Molecular epidemiological methods associated with whole genome sequencing to determine 'who infects whom' may shed more light on the factors generating predisposition.
  • Geographical distribution of soil transmitted helminths and the effects of community type in South Asia and South East Asia - A systematic review. [Journal Article]
  • PNPLoS Negl Trop Dis 2018; 12(1):e0006153
  • Silver ZA, Kaliappan SP, … Ajjampur SSR
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our analysis showed significant variation in prevalence rates between and within countries in the region. Highlighting the importance of community type in prevalence and species mix, we showed that tribal and rural communities had higher hookworm infections than urban communities and for ascariasis and trichuriasis, tribal populations had higher levels of infection than rural populations. We also found a higher prevalence of ascariasis and trichuriasis in SAC compared to the general population but comparable levels of hookworm infections. These key findings need to be taken into account in planning future MDA and other interventions.
  • Gallbladder ascariasis in Kosovo - focus on ultrasound and conservative therapy: a case series. [Journal Article]
  • JMJ Med Case Rep 2018 Jan 13; 12(1):8
  • Ismaili-Jaha V, Toro H, … Jaha L
  • CONCLUSIONS: Gallbladder ascariasis should be considered in all patients presenting with abdominal pain, distension, colic, nausea, anorexia, and intermittent diarrhea associated with jaundice, nausea, vomiting, fever, and severe radiating pain. Eosinophilia, ova, and parasites on stool examination as well as an anechogenic tube with characteristic movement within the bile duct found on abdominal ultrasound are conclusive for diagnosis. Mebendazole is an effective drug for the treatment. Surgical treatment is rarely needed.
  • A Case of Biliary Ascariasis in Korea. [Journal Article]
  • KJKorean J Parasitol 2017; 55(6):659-660
  • Choi JH, Seo M
  • Biliary ascariasis is still the leading cause of surgical complication of ascariasis, though its incidence has been dramatically reduced. Herein, we report a case of biliary ascariasis for the purpos...
