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].

PLoS Negl Trop Dis. 2014 Aug; 8(8): e3018. Strongyloidiasis—An Insight into Its Global Prevalence and Management

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.

Parasite Epidemiology and Control Volume 1, Issue 3, September 2016, Seroepidemiology of Strongyloides stercoralis amongst immunocompromised patients in Southwest Iran. Abstract Strongyloidiasis is a life-threatening parasitic infection, especially in immunosuppressed patients, with death often occurring within several days.

The disease has a worldwide distribution and is endemic in tropical and subtropical regions. Therefore, this study was conducted to investigate seroepidemiology of Strongyloides infection amongst immunocompromised patients in Southwest Iran. This cross-sectional study was conducted amongst a population of immunocompromised patients who were referred to health care or hospital referral centres in Ahvaz, Southwest Iran.

Serum samples were tested by an enzyme immunoassay for anti-IgG Strongyloides antibody. Keywords.

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.

Parasite Epidemiology and Control Volume 1, Issue 2, Pages 15-204 (June 2016) Anthelmintics efficacy against intestinal strongyles in horses of Sardinia, Italy

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. Coprocultures performed for individual fecal samples collected at the day of the treatment revealed that cyathostomins were the predominant parasitic species (98.6%). Keywords 1. 2.

PLOS 09/05/13 A Public Health Response against Strongyloides stercoralis: Time to Look at Soil-Transmitted Helminthiasis in Full

A public health response against soil-transmitted helminth (STH) infections should broaden the strategy to include S. stercoralis and overcome the epidemiological, diagnostic, and therapeutic challenges that this parasite poses in comparison to Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura, and hookworms. The relatively poor sensitivity of single stool evaluations, which is further lowered when quantitative techniques aimed at detecting eggs are used, also complicates morbidity evaluations and adequate drug efficacy measurements, since S. stercoralis is eliminated in stools in a larval stage. Specific stool techniques for the detection of larvae of S. stercoralis, like Baermann's and Koga's agar plate, despite superiority over direct techniques are still suboptimal.

Information on the parasite is scarce in most settings. In semi-rural Cambodia, we determined infection rates and risk factors; compared two diagnostic methods (Koga agar plate [KAP] culture and Baermann technique) for detecting S. stercoralis infections, using a multiple stool examination approach; and assessed efficacy of ivermectin treatment.

BMC Veterinary Research 2014, 10:262 Strongyle infections and parasitic control strategies in German horses ― a risk assessment. Durrheim (2013)1 “Simply wearing footwear could interrupt the transmission of Strongyloides stercoralis” (BMJ 2013; 347: f5219) is to be applauded for suggesting that an environmental rather than clinical intervention might be the key to controlling Strongyloides stercoralis.

BMC Veterinary Research 2014, 10:262 Strongyle infections and parasitic control strategies in German horses ― a risk assessment

For too long we have taken a purely clinical approach – ie pills – to treating Strongyloides infection in humans, and ignored both the reinfection rates and the potential for development of antihelminthic resistance. However cultural acceptability of footwear, particularly in hot climates, is low, suggesting other environmental control methods should also be assessed. Grove’s[2] thirty year old suggestion that the most effective control measures against human helminthes has been the installation and usage of safe waste disposal systems still holds. 1.

Strongyloidiasis, an infection of an intestinal parasitic nematode, affects about 30–100 million people worldwide [1,2]. It is endemic in areas where sanitary conditions are poor and where the climate is warm and humid [3]. The clinical manifestations of strongyloidiasis vary greatly according to infection intensity and the immune-status of the patient. It is thought that more than 50% of all infections remain asymptomatic [4-6]. In Cambodia, a recent study showed that 24.4% and 49.3% of schoolchildren were infected with strongyloidiasis and hookworm, respectively [7].

Abstract Background The soil-transmitted threadworm, Strongyloides stercoralis, is one of the most neglected among the so-called neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). We reviewed studies of the last 20 years on S. stercoralis's global prevalence in general populations and risk groups. Methods/Principal Findings A literature search was performed in PubMed for articles published between January 1989 and October 2011.

Conclusions Our findings show high infection prevalence rates in the general population in selected countries and geographical regions. Author Summary. Am. J. Trop. Med.

PLOS 05/09/13 Lungworm Infections in German Dairy Cattle Herds — Seroprevalence and GIS-Supported Risk Factor Analysis. In November 2008, a total of 19,910 bulk tank milk (BTM) samples were obtained from dairy farms from all over Germany, corresponding to about 20% of all German dairy herds, and analysed for antibodies against the bovine lungworm Dictyocaulus viviparus by use of the recombinant MSP-ELISA.

A total number of 3,397 (17.1%; n = 19,910) BTM samples tested seropositive. The prevalences in individual German federal states varied between 0.0% and 31.2% positive herds. A geospatial map was drawn to show the distribution of seropositive and seronegative herds per postal code area. ELISA results were further analysed for associations with land-use and climate data. Bivariate statistical analysis was used to identify potential spatial risk factors for dictyocaulosis.
