Abstract As members of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines development group on chemotherapy strategies for the control of Taenia solium taeniasis, we are very disappointed at the systematic review by Haby and colleagues.

With respect to the analysis of efficacy, the authors did not account for differences in the methods used to ascertain the outcome in the studies analyzed. There are also major concerns regarding the safety analyses. Few of the included studies used carefully designed active surveillance protocols to detect epileptic seizures and/or chronic progressive headaches. These neurologic side effects, due the inadvertent killing of viable brain cysts, have been noted after mass therapy with praziquantel and albendazole.

PATHOGENS 06/01/20 Currently Available Monitoring and Surveillance Systems for Taenia spp., Echinococcus spp., Schistosoma spp., and Soil-Transmitted Helminths at the Control/Elimination Stage: A Systematic Review

This is partly true for Taenia solium taeniasis/cysticercosis, the most important foodborne parasitic infection. Despite substantial progress, adequate monitoring and surveillance (M&S) are required to sustain a status of control/elimination. This is often lacking, especially for T. solium. Therefore, the objective was to conduct a systematic literature review of the currently available M&S systems at the control/elimination stage of the four top-ranked helminth NTDs. Specifically, Taenia spp., Echinococcus spp., Schistosoma spp., and soil-transmitted helminths (STHs) were considered to determine if there are any similarities between their M&S systems and whether certain approaches can be adopted from each other.

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 %).

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.

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. 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. Author summary.

November 2014 Tapeworm infection of the central nervous system is a leading cause of epilepsy worldwide Neurocysticercosis is a preventable parasitic infection of the central nervous system and is caused by the pork tapeworm Taenia solium. 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.

Dr. 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.
