  • An Overview of Ascariasis Involvement in Gallbladder Disease: A Systematic Review of Case Reports. [Review]
    Cureus. 2022 Dec; 14(12):e32545.Inyang B, Koshy FS, … Mohammed L
  • Ascaris lumbricoides is the most common type of helminth infection in humans. It affects more than one billion of the world's population. Children living in developing nations are prone to ascariasis, presenting with obstructive biliary illnesses. Migration of Ascaris worms through the major duodenal papilla to the hepatobiliary system leads to symptoms of biliary colic and complications along th…
  • Seroprevalence of Ascaris suum compared to milk spot prevalence at slaughter in Italian fattening pigs. [Journal Article]
    Vet Parasitol Reg Stud Reports. 2023 Jan; 37:100828.Vismarra A, Lenti A, … Geldhof P
  • Ascaris suum is one of the most important parasites of pigs. Apart from liver condemnation due to lesions caused by migrating larvae ("milk spots"), A. suum infections can compromise weight gain, feed conversion efficacy, as well as meat quality. The true prevalence of infection depends on the diagnostic test used and is often underestimated. We compared liver inspection at slaughter with serolog…
  • Transcriptome profiling of male and female Ascaris lumbricoides reproductive tissues. [Journal Article]
    Parasit Vectors. 2022 Dec 20; 15(1):477.Phuphisut O, Poodeepiyasawat A, … Adisakwattana P
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study has provided comprehensive transcriptome profiles of discrete A. lumbricoides reproductive tissue samples, revealing the molecular basis of these functionally important tissues. The data generated from this study will provide fundamental knowledge on the reproductive biology of Ascaris and will inform future target identification for anti-ascariasis drugs and/or vaccines.
  • Effect of probiotics on the intestinal microbiota of patients with giardiasis and ascariasis. [Journal Article]
    J Med Life. 2022 Oct; 15(10):1278-1282.Pryshliak OY, Protsyk AL, … Gerych PR
  • Recently, many cases of mixed invasion by Giardia and ascarids have been registered. Gastrointestinal lesions in patients are often accompanied by dysbiotic changes. The aim was to study the effect of probiotics containing Saccharomyces bouvardias CNCM I-745 in the complex therapy of patients with giardiasis, ascariasis, and mixed invasion. 90 patients with giardiasis, ascariasis and mixed invasi…
  • Global prevalence of Ascaris infection in humans (2010-2021): a systematic review and meta-analysis. [Review]
    Infect Dis Poverty. 2022 Nov 18; 11(1):113.Holland C, Sepidarkish M, … Rostami A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our findings indicate that, despite a renewed commitment by some communities or authorities to control ascariasis, a substantial portion of the world's human population (> 0.7 billion) is infected with Ascaris. Despite the clinical and socioeconomic importance of ascariasis, many past routine surveys did not assess the intensity of Ascaris infection in people. We propose that the present findings might stimulate the development of customised strategies for the improved control and prevention of Ascaris infection worldwide.
  • Gut bacteriome and metabolome of Ascaris lumbricoides in patients. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep. 2022 11 14; 12(1):19524.Klomkliew P, Sawaswong V, … Reamtong O
  • The most frequent intestinal helminth infections in humans are attributed to Ascaris lumbricoides, and there are concerns over the anthelminthic resistance of this species. The gut microbiota has essential roles in host physiology. Therefore, discovering host-parasite-microbiota interactions could help develop alternative helminthiasis treatments. Additionally, these interactions are modulated by…
  • Pharmacokinetics and therapeutic efficacy of levamisole in Ascaridia galli experimentally infected ducks. [Journal Article]
    Vet Parasitol. 2022 Dec; 312:109838.Tabari MA, Poźniak B, … Youssefi MR
  • This study investigated the pharmacokinetics and therapeutic efficacy of levamisole (LVS) after intravenous (i.v.) and oral administrations to healthy and Ascaridia galli-infected ducks by developing an infection model. Twenty-four two-week old ducklings were experimentally infected with A. galli. The ducks were monitored for the development of infection and after 8 weeks they were administered w…
  • "Worm within worm": acute appendicitis containing an adult Ascaris lumbricoïdes. [Case Reports]
    BJR Case Rep. 2022 Sep; 8(3):20210035.Niang I, Dieng CK, … Ba AL
  • Appendicitis is the first etiology for abdominal surgical emergency. Ascariasis is the most common helminth infection in tropical countries where it is endemic. The ability of intestinal helminths to wander through the digestive system means that it can end up in the appendix lumen and lead to appendicitis by luminal obstruction. However, this presentation is still rarely described in the literat…
  • Bioaccessibility and oral immunization efficacy of a chimeric protein vaccine against Ascaris suum. [Journal Article]
    Microbes Infect. 2022 Sep 06; 25(3):105042.Castro JC, Magalhães LM, … Fujiwara RT
  • Human ascariasis has been characterized as the most prevalent neglected tropical disease worldwide. There is an urgent need for search to alternative prevention and control methods for ascariasis. Here we aimed to establish a protocol of oral immunization with a previously described chimera protein capable of resist through digestion and induce mucous protection against Ascaris suum infection. Mi…
  • StatPearls: Trichuris Trichiura [BOOK]

  • Trichuris trichiura, also known as the human whipworm, is a roundworm that causes trichuriasis in humans. It is referred to as the whipworm because it looks like a whip with wide handles at the posterior end. The whipworm has a narrow anterior esophagus and a thick posterior anus. The worms are usually pink and attach to the host via the slender anterior end. The size of these worms varies from 3…
  • Case Report: Laparoscopic Management of Acute Appendicitis Resulting from Ascaris lumbricoides. [Case Reports]
    Am J Trop Med Hyg. 2022 07 13; 107(1):130-131.Castañeda C, Valbuena D, … Pedraza M
  • Appendicitis is one of the most common conditions that leads to an acute abdomen. Surgical management is the gold standard for therapy. The main cause of appendicitis is an obstruction in the appendicular lumen. Intestinal ascariasis infection is undoubtedly one of the least frequent. We present a female patient with acute appendicitis resulting from Ascaris lumbricoides as an incidental intraope…
  • StatPearls: Ascariasis [BOOK]
    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL)de Lima CorvinoDaniela F.DFEinstein Medical Center PhiladelphiaHorrallShawnSBaylor Scott & WhiteBOOK
  • Approximately one billion people worldwide are infected with Ascaris lumbricoides, and more than 60,000 people die from the disease annually. It affects mostly tropical and subtropical countries around the world, and it is frequently documented in Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, China, and East Asia. Unfortunately, it is a neglected tropical disease that causes an estimated loss of 1.2 to 1.5 …
  • Genetic diversity and identity of Ascaris worms from human and pig hosts in Thailand. [Journal Article]
    Vet Parasitol Reg Stud Reports. 2022 08; 33:100752.Eamsobhana P, Yong HS, … Tungtrongchitr A
  • Ascaris roundworms are of public health and socio-economic importance worldwide. They are conventionally attributed to two taxa - A. lumbricoides infecting principally human and A. suum infecting principally pig. Phylogenomic analysis has revealed that Ascaris worms from both human and pig are represented in Clades A and B. A recent study indicates that the Ascaris worms from human and pig in Tha…
  • [Ascaris lumbricoides-induced pancreatic lesion]. [Journal Article]
    Khirurgiia (Mosk). 2022Barkhatova NA, Peshikova MV, … Peshikov OV
  • Ascaris lumbricoides is nematode localized in human small bowel in most cases. This nematode is capable for migration. Pancreatitis is one of the most common surgical diseases. One of the causes of this pancreatitis may be migration of Ascaris lumbricoides from small bowel through the major duodenal papilla to the pancreatic ducts. This migration is provided by complex of morphological and functi…
