THE ATLANTIC 26/05/20 America’s Never-Ending Battle Against Flesh-Eating Worms (Lucilie bouchère) - Inside the U.S. and Panama’s long-running collaboration to rid an entire continent of a deadly disease. The Florida Keys are a place where deer stand next to children at school-bus stops.
They lounge on lawns. They eat snacks right out of people’s hands. So when the deer began acting strangely in the summer of 2016, the people of the Keys noticed. Bucks started swinging their heads erratically, as if trying to shake something loose. Then wounds opened on their heads—big, gaping wounds that exposed white slabs of bone. That something, lab tests would later confirm, was the New World screwworm, a parasite supposed to have been eradicated from the United States half a century ago. UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA - 2005 - Quality of Transgenic Laboratory Strains of Cochliomyia hominivorax (Diptera: Calliphoridae) Abstract Genetically modified, mass reared insects present novel possibilities for the future of insect control.
One concern about manipulation of insects is a possible loss of strain quality due to the introduction of a foreign gene of any sort into the insect genome. Eight transgenic strains of screwworm, Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel) (Diptera: Calliphoridae), were compared with the wild-type parental laboratory strain in laboratory culture. Measurements of average fertility, fecundity, larval productivity, and longevity were analyzed. Two transgenic strains had significantly lower larval productivity than controls, one of which was explained by a homozygous lethal insertion of the transgene. FRONT. MED. 22/01/20 Umbilical Myiasis by Cochliomyia hominivorax in an Infant in Colombia.
Introduction Myiasis is infestation by fly larvae (Diptera) in live vertebrates, including humans.
Fly larvae feed on wound tissue of their host, causing a disease whose severity may depend on the larva species and anatomical sites affected (1, 2). It is widespread in neotropical areas around the world, causing economic and public health problems in low-income populations. Human infection is facilitated by poor hygienic conditions and close contact with wild or domestic animals (2, 3).

NYTIMES 25/11/16 A Long-Gone Parasite Returns to Florida, Leaving a Trail of Dead Deer (lucilie bouchère) Officials involved with the eradication program disagreed.
“This had not been around since the ’50s and ’60s,” said Dan Clark, the manager of the refuge. “My staff wouldn’t have worked professionally with anything like that. Even a lot of veterinarians just had never seen it,” he said, adding, “Any reasonable person would have done what we did.” To eradicate the screwworm, seven million fly pupae sterilized by radiation are being released each week in the Florida Keys. The female mates only once in her lifetime, so the idea is that if the female mates with a sterilized fly, the screwworm infestation should be over in about six months. For the first time since the outbreak began, no deer died in the past week, showing that those measures and antiparasitic medications fed to the deer are beginning to show signs of success, the Fish and Wildlife Service said in a statement on Thursday.
RDPARASITES BLOGSPOT 28/08/13 The Decline of the Screwworm Fly – Edward Knipling vs Cochliomyia hominivorax. In July 2013 a British woman came to the attention of both the medical community and the media when she returned from Peru with maggots in her ear.
The fly larvae had created a cavity connected to the ear canal and were feeding on healthy tissue in Rochelle Harris's head. According to a Medical Daily story by John Ericson, Harris endured “unbearable pains emanating from one side of her face, pains that were eventually accompanied by menacing scratching sounds from inside her head” ("British Woman Discovers Flesh-Eating Maggots Inside Her Ear," July 16, 2013). This is a horrific story, and many people reading it will have heard of the dreaded New World screwworm fly – Cochliomyia hominivorax - for the first time. In North America, too, we're unfamiliar with the fly - we've forgotten that it once infested the southern United States, spreading northward each summer as far as Canada.
If not for entomologist Edward Knipling, it might still plague us, as it does parts of South America.

L'actualité a été ajouté à votre bibliothèque Actualité du 22/05/2012 Fièvre aphteuse, influenza aviaire ou encore fièvre catarrhale ovine, comme l'ont montré les crises sanitaires de la dernière décennie, il est essentiel de disposer de systèmes de lutte organisés et réactifs contre les agents pathogènes exotiques.
Afin d'identifier les maladies exotiques les plus à risque d'introduction en France et de préciser les modalités de lutte et de surveillance les plus adaptées contre ces agents, l'Anses s'est auto-saisie. Elle publie aujourd'hui les résultats de ses travaux et les recommandations qu'elle en tire. La santé des animaux est susceptible d'être menacée par divers agents pathogènes (bactéries, virus, parasites) dont certains peuvent également affecter la santé humaine (agents zoonotiques). Dans ce contexte, l'Anses a souhaité s'autosaisir.
