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].

PARASITES & VECTORS 26/07/16 Taenia ovis: an emerging threat to the Chinese sheep industry? Although the first outbreak does not rule out the possibility of imported cases, it may have resulted from the spread of T. ovis present in remote areas or regions in China [6], and also suggest that the epidemic situation across the country is underestimated.

PARASITES & VECTORS 26/07/16 Taenia ovis: an emerging threat to the Chinese sheep industry?

The assessment of the epidemiology of T. ovis is urgent because the lack of epidemic data makes it difficult and inefficient to implement disease control campaigns, such as an ongoing programme called Ovis Management Limited in New Zealand [7]. For the transmission of T. ovis, many factors, including eggs, dogs and wild canids, human behaviours and sheep trade, should be carefully considered. It was estimated that one adult worm could produce 70,000 ~ 250,000 eggs per day [7], posing a huge resource for pasture and water contamination.

Although the developmental and maturation processes of eggs in the environment are largely unknown, they maintain infectivity for as long as one year on pasture [8]. THE LANCET 16/08/14 Of pigs and people—WHO prepares to battle cysticercosis. No-one at the WHO meeting talked of eradicating T solium disease but the possibility has been mooted on several occasions over the past two decades.

THE LANCET 16/08/14 Of pigs and people—WHO prepares to battle cysticercosis

In 1993, the International Task Force on Disease Eradication put the disease on its list of six potentially eradicable diseases. In 2012, WHO put T solium disease on its roadmap for controlling neglected tropical diseases. Control of T solium disease means, essentially, breaking the life cycle that perpetuates it. Eric Fèvre, professor of veterinary infectious diseases at the Institute of Infection and Global Health, Liverpool University, UK, who chaired the WHO meeting, presented a landscape analysis of attempts by endemic countries to halt transmission of the disease. Pigs foraging in areas infected with Taenia solium can ingest the parasite's eggs.

PLOS 17/02/17 Modelling the risk of Taenia solium exposure from pork produced in western Kenya. Abstract The tapeworm Taenia solium is the parasite responsible for neurocysticercosis, a neglected tropical disease of public health importance, thought to cause approximately 1/3 of epilepsy cases across endemic regions.

PLOS 17/02/17 Modelling the risk of Taenia solium exposure from pork produced in western Kenya

The consumption of undercooked infected pork perpetuates the parasite’s life-cycle through the establishment of adult tapeworm infections in the community. Reducing the risk associated with pork consumption in the developing world is therefore a public health priority. The aim of this study was to estimate the risk of any one pork meal in western Kenya containing a potentially infective T. solium cysticercus at the point of consumption, an aspect of the parasite transmission that has not been estimated before. To estimate this, we used a quantitative food chain risk assessment model built in the @RISK add-on to Microsoft Excel.

Parasites & Vectors 10/02/16 Epidemiology, impact and control of bovine cysticercosis in Europe: a systematic review

Most of the data originated from routine inspection and just a few studies reported results based on other diagnostic techniques such as serological tests or detailed meat inspection. A table displaying all the prevalence data identified through the review is provided in Additional file 3. In total we collected data from 50 different sources reporting bovine cysticercosis prevalence in Europe based on meat inspection. The number of published reports and/or personal communications per year was quite low with no more than three reports in most of the years. Few sources provided the age of the animals inspected.

OMS 10/11/14 10 facts about neurocysticercosis

Humans become infected after consuming undercooked food, particularly pork, or water contaminated with tapeworm eggs, or through poor hygiene practices. Taeniasis is the intestinal infection of the adult tapeworm. When left untreated, a more serious condition known as cysticercosis develops as T. solium larvae invade body tissues.

NEWS MEDICAL 13/07/15 Cysticercosis now fully controlled in Mexico

Ana Flisser was recognized for 40 years of research regarding this disease. The parasite can not be eradicated; however, it is important to present simple preventive measures. After years of research we can say that in Mexico cysticercosis is fully controlled and researchers are now working on other aspects of treatment, such as immuno-modeling with a protein from the parasite that gives rise to the disease. This pointed out by doctor Ana Flisser Steinbruch, who received the Carlos Slim Health Award 2015 for a 40 year long career in research of studying cysticercosis, its prevalence in pigs and humans, and its forms of control.

PARASITES & VECTORS 28/03/14 Investigating a hyper-endemic focus of Taenia solium in northern Lao PDR. Background The human taeniasis/cysticercosis complex, caused by the tapeworm parasite Taenia solium, is listed by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as one of eight Neglected Zoonotic Diseases (NZDs) of significant public health importance, for which a combined ‘One Health’ approach by the human and animal health sectors is recommended for control in endemic countries [1,2]. Humans can act as both the definitive and accidental dead-end intermediate hosts of the parasite, with a risk of infection from both the adult (taeniasis) and larval stages (cysticercosis), respectively.

Poor sanitation, open defecation and free-ranging pig production systems contribute to the ingestion of tapeworm eggs by the human and pig intermediate hosts, leading to the development of larval cysts in both.
