  • Review of Dancing Parasites in Lymphatic Filariasis. [Review]
    Ultrasound Int Open 2019; 5(2):E65-E74Dietrich CF, Chaubal N, … Dong Y
  • Lymphatic filariasis is an infection transmitted by blood-sucking mosquitoes with filarial nematodes of the species Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi und B. timori . It is prevalent in tropical countries throughout the world, with more than 60 million people infected and more than 1 billion living in areas with the risk of transmission. Worm larvae with a length of less than 1 mm are transmitte…
  • Strategies to Control Human Lymphatic Filarial Infection: Tweaking Host's Immune System. [Journal Article]
    Curr Top Med Chem 2019Murthy PK
  • Human lymphatic filariasis (LF), a parasitic infection caused by the nematodes Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi and B. timori, and transmitted by mosquito, results in a debilitating disease commonly identified as 'elephantiasis'. LF affects millions of people in India and several other tropical and sub-tropical countries imposing huge economic burden on governments due to disability associated…
  • Comparative Genomic Analysis of Trichinella spiralis Reveals Potential Mechanisms of Adaptive Evolution. [Journal Article]
    Biomed Res Int 2019; 2019:2948973Qu Z, Li W, … Fu B
  • Trichinellosis caused by parasitic nematodes of the genus Trichinella may result in human morbidity and mortality worldwide. Deciphering processes that drive species diversity and adaptation are key to understanding parasitism and developing effective control strategies. Our goal was to identify genes that are under positive selection and possible mechanisms of adaptive evolution of Trichinella s…
  • Giant filarial retroperitoneal cyst: a diagnostic dilemma. [Case Reports]
    Trop Med Health 2019; 47:37Lal P, Bains L, … Mandal S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Retroperitoneal lymphatic cyst of filarial origin is very unusual and requires a high index of suspicion if the patient is an inhabitant of an endemic area. The clinical dilemma cannot be resolved with imaging modalities alone, unless a disease-specific manifestation is there. The retroperitoneal cysts often pose a challenge in their diagnosis and management. Small cysts might respond to medical management, whereas large symptomatic cysts will require excision for the final diagnosis and treatment.
