  • The Risk of Chronic Gastrointestinal Disorders Following Acute Infection with Intestinal Parasites. [Journal Article]
  • FMFront Microbiol 2018; 9:17
  • Blitz J, Riddle MS, Porter CK
  • CONCLUSIONS: We found that parasite-associated enteric infection increases the risk of development of post-infectious chronic gastrointestinal disorders in a military population. These results require confirmation in similar populations and in the developing world where infection with these parasites is endemic. Further understanding of disease burden and causal mechanisms should direct primary prevention and potential disease interception strategies.
  • 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.
