  • Intestinal protozoan and helminthic infections among hemodialysis and cancer patients. [Journal Article]
    Parasitol Res. 2020 Jul 08 [Online ahead of print]Mahmoudi MR, Hasani H, … Karanis P
  • Intestinal parasitic infections (IPIs) can be a severe threat to immunocompromised patients. This is particularly true for those undergoing chemotherapy and hemodialysis. The present research is aimed at identifying intestinal parasites that might be present in immunocompromised patients. In this cross-sectional study 1040 stool samples were collected from March to September 2017. Six hundred and…
  • Detection of Intestinal Parasites in Stray Dogs from a Farming and Cattle Region of Northwestern Mexico. [Journal Article]
    Pathogens. 2020 Jun 28; 9(7)Trasviña-Muñoz E, López-Valencia G, … Burquez-Escobedo M
  • Stray dogs are one of the main reservoirs of intestinal parasitic infections and some have zoonotic potential. An epidemiological survey was carried out between September 2017 and May 2018 in Mexicali Valley, this area sacrifices around 92,470 head of cattle monthly, which represents 27% of the national slaughter and has 71,307 hectares for crops. In this period the Municipal Animal Control Cente…
  • The typical cestodes of the red fox in eastern areas of the Iberian Peninsula have a grouped distribution. [Journal Article]
    Vet Parasitol. 2020 Jun 13; 283:109168.Sanchis-Monsonís G, Fanelli A, … Tizzani P
  • The red fox (Vulpes vulpes) is the most abundant wild canid in the Iberian Peninsula, and can act as a carrier of a wide range of parasite species shared with dogs and cats and which are sometimes zoonoses. Despite this, few studies are available describing the distribution and epidemiology of the cestode community of this opportunistic carnivore in areas of Mediterranean climate. In this study, …
  • Neurocysticercosis-related seizures in the post-partum period: two cases and a review of the literature. [Review]
    Lancet Infect Dis. 2020 Jun 19 [Online ahead of print]Ursini T, Di Giacomo R, … Buonfrate D
  • Neurocysticercosis, the infection of the CNS with larval cysts of Taenia solium, is a leading cause of seizures in low-income countries. The clinical presentation of neurocysticercosis is variable and depends on the number, size, and location of cysticerci, and on the immune response of the host. In most patients, the affected site is the brain parenchyma, where cysts can precipitate seizures. Ne…
  • Control of taeniasis and cysticercosis in China. [Journal Article]
    Adv Parasitol. 2020; 110:289-317.Qian MB, Xiao N, … Zhou XN
  • National surveys suggest that the prevalence of taeniasis has considerably decreased in China, while reported cases indicated T. solium cysticercosis was historically highly endemic in northeastern, central and southwestern China. The high prevalence of taeniasis and cysticercosis there was driven by socio-ecological determinants. Cysticercosis may occur in the central nervous system, spinal cord…
  • Distribution of Parasitic Helminths in the Small Intestine of the Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes). [Journal Article]
    Pathogens. 2020 Jun 16; 9(6)Karamon J, Sroka J, … Cencek T
  • The aim of the study was to analyze the distribution of the main groups of parasitic helminths within the small intestine of the red fox on the example of animals coming from eastern Poland. Two hundred and sixteen red foxes shot in eastern Poland were used in the investigation. Before examination, each small intestine was divided into three equal parts: anterior (A), middle (M), and posterior (P…
  • Bovine cysticercosis and human taeniasis in a rural community in Ethiopia. [Journal Article]
    Zoonoses Public Health. 2020 Jun 19 [Online ahead of print]Gutema FD, Shiberu T, … Hailu Y
  • CONCLUSIONS: Bovine cysticercosis and human taeniasis are important in this rural community. Providing meat inspection services and public health education on intervention measures such as proper cooking of meat, access to latrines and clean water are effective strategies that can break the lifecycle of the parasite and ensure beef safety and public health.
  • Frequency and determinant factors for calcification in neurocysticercosis. [Journal Article]
    Clin Infect Dis. 2020 Jun 17 [Online ahead of print]Bustos JA, Arroyo G, … Cysticercosis Working Group in Peru
  • CONCLUSIONS: Approximately 38% of parenchymal cysts calcify after antiparasitic treatment. Some factors associated to calcification are modifiable and may be approached to decrease or avoid calcification, potentially decreasing the risk for seizure relapses.
  • Human Taeniases in Slovakia (2010-2019): Genetic Analysis of Taenia saginata Isolates. [Journal Article]
    Foodborne Pathog Dis. 2020 Jun 17 [Online ahead of print]Antolová D, Jarošová J, … Šimeková K
  • Taenia saginata and Taenia solium, known as beef and pork tapeworm, are foodborne pathogens of global importance having a substantial impact on human health and economy. The study aimed to summarize the occurrence of human Taenia spp. infection in past 10 years in Slovakia based on reports of clinicians and diagnostic laboratories to Public Health Authority of the Slovak Republic. Altogether, 19 …

  • The use of L protein coupled magnetic particles for the concentration and purification of immunoglobulin M (mIgM) monoclonal antibodies against Taenia solium was evaluated. Three concentration methods and different elution times were evaluated and the ratio of particles to the ratio of mIgM was optimized. It is demonstrated that: 1) with the use of magnetic particles, a previous concentration of …
  • Parkinsonism Secondary to Hydrocephalus Caused by Neurocysticercosis. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2020 Apr 29; 12(4):e7887.Oliveira SCS, Monteiro DAM, … Ribeiro EML
  • The diagnosis of parkinsonism is established by the presence of tremor, stiffness and bradykinesia alongside with neurological examination, requiring the exclusion of secondary causes such as stroke, hydrocephalus and infectious diseases. Included in this last category, neurocysticercosis is a disease caused by Taenia solium, with a variable clinical presentation that can include epileptic seizur…
  • Taenia solium insulin receptors: promising candidates for cysticercosis treatment and prevention. [Journal Article]
    Acta Trop. 2020 May 30; 209:105552.Wang L, Liang P, … Luo X
  • Insulin signaling pathway is an ancient and highly conserved pathway known to play critical roles in cell growth, control and metabolic regulation. In this study, we identified and characterized two insulin receptor genes (TsIR-1316 and TsIR-4810) from Taenia solium. TsIR-1316 was grouped with E. multilocularis insulin receptor (EmIR-1) and TsIR-4810 was closer to Taenia pisiformis insulin-like g…
  • Taenia solium Cysticercosis and Its Impact in Neurological Disease. [Review]
    Clin Microbiol Rev. 2020 Jun 17; 33(3)Garcia HH, Gonzalez AE, Gilman RH
  • SUMMARYTaenia solium neurocysticercosis (NCC) is endemic in most of the world and contributes significantly to the burden of epilepsy and other neurological morbidity. Also present in developed countries because of immigration and travel, NCC is one of few diseases targeted for eradication. This paper reviews all aspects of its life cycle (taeniasis, porcine cysticercosis, human cysticercosis), w…
