  • Biliary parascarosis in a foal. [Case Reports]
    Vet Med Sci. 2023 Feb 01 [Online ahead of print]Sazmand A, Yavari M, … Otranto D
  • Migration of Ascaris lumbricoides through the papilla of Vater in humans, and entry into the biliary tree, is well-recognised. Ascaris suum and Toxocara vitulorum have been recovered from the liver of swine and buffalo. We necropsied a Persian Kurdish filly at age 6 months, weighing ∼100 kg. Death evidently was caused by oleander (Nerium oleander) intoxication. An 8-cm adult male Parascaris was f…
  • Ascaris induced acute pancreatitis in paediatric population - a case series. [Journal Article]
    J Pak Med Assoc. 2022 Oct; 72(10):2090-2092.Afreen M, Mustafa H, … Shaikh N
  • The most common helminthic parasitic infection inhabiting human intestine is Ascaris lumbricoides (AL). Being the largest of the helminthic family, it infects almost one billion people worldwide, but any information about local population is unavailable especially in children. When patients present with abdominal pain, having ascaris induced pancreatitis never meets the differential diagnosis lis…
  • 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…
  • Gut Parasites of medical importance harboured by Musca domestica in Calabar, Nigeria. [Journal Article]
    Trop Parasitol. 2022 Jul-Dec; 12(2):99-104.Otu-Bassey IB, Efretuei GK, Mbah M
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study has confirmed M. domestica in Calabar as a mechanical carrier of potential pathogenic gut parasites, especially in the insanitary areas, with E. histolytica/dispar being the most frequently encountered. Effective control of flies' population in the human and animal habitats and increased public awareness on their health hazards are recommended.
  • Intestinal parasitic infections and risk factors among the population in Cambodia. [Journal Article]
    Trop Biomed. 2022 Dec 01; 39(4):539-546.La N, Leng M, … Rattanapitoon SK
  • Many species of helminths and protozoa caused intestinal parasitic infections (IPIs). It belongs to neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) and remains a major public health problem in several Southeast Asian countries. The present study aimed to investigate the prevalence of IPIs and associated risk factors among the population in Kratie Province in northeastern Cambodia and Phnom Penh is the capital…
  • 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…
  • Multiple overlapping risk factors for childhood wheeze among children in Benin. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Med Res. 2022 Dec 26; 27(1):304.Avokpaho EFGA, Gineau L, … Garcia A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Children infected with A. lumbricoides appear to be at elevated risk of wheeze. Deworming may be an important intervention to reduce these symptoms. Improving cooking methods to reduce household air pollution, modifying dietary habits to avoid overweight, and keeping animals out of the house are all additional measures that could also contribute to reducing childrens' risk of wheeze. Policymakers in LMIC should consider tailoring public health measures to reflect the importance of these different risk factors.
  • The turkey ascarid, Ascaridia dissimilis, as a model genetic system. [Journal Article]
    Int J Parasitol. 2022 Dec 19 [Online ahead of print]Collins JB, Andersen EC
  • Parasitic nematodes cause significant effects on humans each year, with the most prevalent being Ascaris lumbricoides. Benzimidazoles (BZ) are the most widely used anthelmintic drug in humans, and although the biology of resistance to this drug class is understood in some species, resistance is poorly characterized in ascarids. Models such as Caenorhabditis elegans were essential in developing ou…
  • 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.
  • Anaemia and Nutritional Status during HIV and Helminth Coinfection among Adults in South Africa. [Journal Article]
    Nutrients. 2022 Nov 23; 14(23)Mpaka-Mbatha MN, Naidoo P, … Mkhize-Kwitshana ZL
  • Sub-Saharan Africa is burdened with helminthiasis and HIV/AIDS, and there is a significant overlap between these infections. However, little is known about the extent of anaemia and malnutrition in HIV/AIDS and helminth coinfected adults. The study investigated the anaemia profiles and nutritional status of HIV and helminth coinfected adult South Africans. Stool samples were collected from partic…
  • 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…
