Opisthorchis Felineus


Presentation

  • When present, symptoms (fever, nausea, abdominal pain, and myalgias) were mild. Eosinophilia occurred in all infected persons.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In conclusion, in this study we present 13 new cases of human oesophagostorniasis.[kundoc.com]
  • The 250-bp fragment was sequenced and compared with the internal transcribed spacer (ITS2) sequences of O. felineus, O. viverrini, and Clonorchis sinensis present in the GenBank database.[doi.org]
  • Main Article Content Daniele Crotti * Maria Letizia D’Annibale Affiliation not present.[pagepressjournals.org]
  • This study documents the importance of opisthorchiasis in certain endemic areas and presents the best available data on associations between O. felineus infection and liver/intrahepatic bile duct cancers in RF.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Italian
  • A total of 370 human sera were tested: 144 sera from persons with a confirmed diagnosis of opisthorchiasis, 110 sera from healthy Italian people, and 116 sera from people with other parasitic or non-parasitic infections.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Hypertension
  • A family history of cardiovascular disease, smoking, hypertension or diabetes was elicited, and serum total cholesterol levels examined.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

Trypanosoma Cruzi
  • His current research interests are centered on the host-parasite interactions of the causative agent of Chagas' disease, Trypanosoma cruzi.[books.google.es]

Treatment

  • Thus, this combination chemotherapy revealed no benefits over praziquantel monotherapy in the treatment of opisthorchiasis felinea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Egg reduction rate against Opisthorchis felineus infection assessed post-treatment assessed pre-treatment to post-treatment on 18-25 days of the follow-up.[isrctn.com]
  • Treatment of opisthorchiasis is generally with a single dose of praziquantel.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • After treatment, no eggs were detected in the woman’s feces. She reported that 33 days before seeking treatment, she had eaten marinated tench filets at a restaurant.[doi.org]
  • The validated ELISA shows a good performance in terms of sensitivity, repeatability and reproducibility, and it is suitable to detect anti-Opisthorchis IgG in human sera for diagnostic purposes and for the follow up to assess the efficacy of drug treatment[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • However, the questions connected with epidemiology of these trematode infections, their clinical characteristics, prognosis and therapy remain open.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • The etiologic agents for opisthorchiasis are O. viverrini and O. felineus. O. viverrini adult flukes are approximately 5 mm to 10 mm by 1 mm to 2 mm and O. felineus are roughly 7 mm to 12 mm by 2 mm to 3 mm long (1).[austincc.edu]

Epidemiology

  • Results of performed analysis reflect the actual epidemiological situation in opisthorchiasis focus and suggest an association of this disease with bile duct cancer. The Author 2015.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • For this reason the timely detection of Opisthorchiasis is important for Cholangiocarcinoma prevention.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Consequently, an early diagnosis prevents chronicity and loss of working days.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
