However, Strongyloides stercoralis is not yet integrated into the control strategy against STH, given limitations to accurately assess its burden. Considering that S. stercoralis shares biological and epidemiological characteristics with hookworms, we describe a new approach for an improved estimation of the burden of infections by S. stercoralis based on the prevalence and burden of hookworms and the relationship between these species.

A systematic review of publications reporting prevalence rates for S. stercoralis and hookworms was carried out. The data was classified into two categories: 1) “Community”, with surveys including all age groups, and 2) “SAC”, with surveys limited to school-aged children. Author summary. Martin K.

SID_IR - 2011 - MOLECULAR DIAGNOSIS OF STRONGYLOIDES STERCORALIS INFECTION BY PCR DETECTION OF SPECIFIC DNA IN HUMAN STOOL SAMPLES.

Background: Strongyloidiasis is mostly an asymptomatic infection and diagnosis of latent infections is difficult due to limitations of current parasitological and serological methods.

SID_IR - 2011 - MOLECULAR DIAGNOSIS OF STRONGYLOIDES STERCORALIS INFECTION BY PCR DETECTION OF SPECIFIC DNA IN HUMAN STOOL SAMPLES

This study was conducted to set up a PCR-based method for molecular diagnosis ofStrongyloides stercoralis infection by detection of copro-DNA in stool samples.Methods: A total of 782 fresh stool samples were collected and examined by agar plate culture.Among those sixteen stool samples, which confirmed to be infected withS. stercoralis were examined as positive control to set up each single and nested PCR, using two primer sets designing to amplify partial ribosomal DNA ofS. stercoralis genome. Since, single PCR method yielded higher efficacy in detecting positive samples, in the second step, 30 stool samples, which found negative forS. stercoralis by agar plate culture of single stool sample, were examined by single PCR.

PLOS 31/01/18 High prevalence of S. Stercoralis infection among patients with Chagas disease: A retrospective case-control study

Methodology Case-control study including LA individuals who were systematically screened for T. cruzi infection and strongyloidiasis between January 2013 and April 2015. Individuals were included as cases if they had a positive serological result for Strongyloides stercoralis. Principal findings During the study period, 361 individuals were screened for both infections. 52 (14.4%) individuals had a positive serological result for strongyloidiasis (cases) and 104 participants with negative results were randomly selected as controls. 76 (48.7%) indiviuals had a positive serological result for T. cruzi.

Conclusions T. cruzi infection was associated with strongyloidiasis in LA migrants attending a tropical diseases unit even after adjusting for epidemiological variables. Author summary Methods.

The prevalence has been increasing, mainly in Southern, Eastern, and central Europe, the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, Latin America, and sub-Saharan Africa (Buonfrate et al., 2015). The filariform larvae, which inhabit the soil, usually infect humans via skin penetration. This parasite is the only helminth able to complete its life cycle inside a single host and some larvae reinfect the host through the intestinal mucosa or perianal skin, using a process called autoinfection.

PLOS 15/05/17 Strongyloides seroprevalence before and after an ivermectin mass drug administration in a remote Australian Aboriginal community. Abstract Background Strongyloides seroprevalence is hyper-endemic in many Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, ranging from 35–60%.

PLOS 15/05/17 Strongyloides seroprevalence before and after an ivermectin mass drug administration in a remote Australian Aboriginal community

We report the impact on Strongyloides seroprevalence after two oral ivermectin mass drug administrations (MDAs) delivered 12 months apart in a remote Australian Aboriginal community. Methods Utilizing a before and after study design, we measured Strongyloides seroprevalence through population census with sequential MDAs at baseline and month 12. Findings We surveyed 1013 participants at the baseline population census and 1060 (n = 700 from baseline cohort and 360 new entrants) at month 12. Significance Two community ivermectin MDAs delivered 12 months apart by trained Aboriginal researchers in collaboration with non-Indigenous researchers resulted in a sustained and significant reduction in Strongyloides seroprevalence over 18 months. PLOS 31/07/17 Control of chronic Strongyloides stercoralis infection in an endemic community may be possible by pharmacological means alone: Results of a three-year cohort study.

Parasites & Vectors 2016 9:486 Seroprevalence of fascioliasis, toxocariasis, strongyloidiasis and cysticercosis in blood samples diagnosed in Medic Medical Center Laboratory, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in 2012. Little information is available on the prevalence of parasitic infections in Vietnam especially on toxocariasis and strongyloidiasis.

Parasites & Vectors 2016 9:486 Seroprevalence of fascioliasis, toxocariasis, strongyloidiasis and cysticercosis in blood samples diagnosed in Medic Medical Center Laboratory, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in 2012

The seroprevalence rates found in this study may reflect that of people living in the southwest region of Vietnam, including HCMC, as most of the blood samples received originated from this region. Seroprevalence rates for all infections reported here are high, especially for toxocariasis (45.2 %) and strongyloidiasis (7.4 %). Transmission of some of the diseases can be explained by the dietary habits of the locals.

For example, consuming raw vegetables such as kangkong-kalabau (Enhydra fluctuants) and Brahmi (Herpestis monniera) contaminated with metacercariae of Fasciola spp., or eating raw/pickled pork (nem chua and nem chao), vegetables and dog meat contaminated with taeniid eggs and cysts of T. solium [12, 13].

The result is strongyloidiasis, a parasitic disease, with a unique cycle of auto-infection causing a variety of symptoms and signs, with possible fatality from hyper-infection. Australian Indigenous community members, often living in rural and remote settings, are exposed to and infected with S. stercoralis. PLoS Negl Trop Dis. 2014 Aug; 8(8): e3018. Strongyloidiasis—An Insight into Its Global Prevalence and Management. Abstract Background Strongyloides stercoralis, an intestinal parasitic nematode, infects more than 100 million people worldwide. Strongyloides are unique in their ability to exist as a free-living and autoinfective cycle. Strongyloidiasis can occur without any symptoms or as a potentially fatal hyperinfection or disseminated infection.

The most common risk factors for these complications are immunosuppression caused by corticosteroids and infection with human T-lymphotropic virus or human immunodeficiency virus. Methodology and Results In this review, we have discussed various conventional methods for the diagnosis and management of this disease, with an emphasis on recently developed molecular and serological methods that could be implemented to establish guidelines for precise diagnosis of infection in patients and screening in epidemiological surveys.

Parasite Epidemiology and Control Volume 1, Issue 2, Pages 15-204 (June 2016) Anthelmintics efficacy against intestinal strongyles in horses of Sardinia, Italy. Abstract Intestinal strongyles (IS) are the most important parasites of equids, due to their high prevalence worldwide, pathogenicity and the spread of drug-resistant populations.

Despite the large number of horses bred in Sardinia Island, Italy, no data are available on the efficacy of anthelmintic compounds in the control of horse strongylosis. Therefore the aim of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy of five commercial anthelmintic formulations containing fenbendazole (FBZ), pyrantel (PYR), moxidectin (MOX) and two ivermectin formulations (IVM1 and IVM2) against IS in Sardinia by performing a fecal egg count reduction test (FECRT) and investigating the egg reappearance period (ERP) after treatment. In total, 74 horses from 7 farms were examined.
