Schistosoma Mekongi


Presentation

  • A literature review of previous cases of S. mekongi infection specifically associated with travelers is then presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In the present study 12 Laotian immigrants with S. mekongi infection were examined. The clinical, laboratory, and parasitologic findings in these patients are discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The patient presented with lower gastrointestinal bleeding secondary to tumor invasion of the small bowel rather than from heavy parasitic infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: DNA sequence data are presented for four populations of S. mekongi from Cambodia and southern Laos, three of which were distinguishable at the COI (cox1) and 12S (rrnS) mitochondrial loci sampled.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The chief characteristic of the present model is competence in dealing with the spread of infection among villages through the Mekong River in consideration of the reduction in longevity of cercariae and miracidia and their diffusion in the river.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Rigor
  • Prevalence and intensity of infections were determined by a rigorous diagnostic effort (3 stool specimens, each examined with triplicate Kato-Katz) before and 28-30 days after treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A rigorous diagnosis approach is necessary for estimating ‘true’ cure rates, as it has been previously demonstrated in studies on S. mansoni [30] , [53] .[journals.plos.org]
Laboratory Technician
  • Acknowledgments The authors thank all the study participants, the laboratory technicians for stool specimen analysis and Phousavanh Sisouphon and Lay Sisavath for laboratory quality control.[journals.plos.org]
Veterinarian
  • The UCP-LF CAA test provides an assay applicable for all known Schistosoma species (including veterinarian ones) and is assumed to allow detection down to the level of a single worm pair while maintaining 100% specificity [ 25 ].[idpjournal.biomedcentral.com]
Suggestibility
  • Our data suggest that the CMI responses of humans with chronic S. mekongi infections are 'modulated' by adherent suppressor cells and serum-suppressive factors, and that modulation of CMI supports the stable host-parasite relationship in a similar fashion[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It is suggested that specific serologic tests may be useful in screening Asian refugees for infection with Schistosoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The simulation suggested that the suppression of S. mekongi in Cambodia would be possible by UT or TT with a high coverage rate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Interestingly, pathway enrichment analysis suggested that genes involved in the phosphatidylinositol signaling pathway may play important roles in the cellular processes and reproductive systems of S. mekongi worms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Surveys were performed in Lumphat because the region was accessible and there have been suggestions of past transmission in Rattanakiri Province [30].[doi.org]

Etiology

  • Etiology Clinical features Clinical features depend on the stage, schistosome type, and infected organs.[amboss.com]
  • Etiology: The trematodes (flukes) . Schistosomes are flukes that inhabit the portal vascular system. All species have similar life cycles.[meddean.luc.edu]
  • Schistosomiasis by Paul Stewart Disease Etiology Schistosomiasis, also known as bilharziasis or snail fever, is caused by infection of digenetic blood trematodes (i.e., helminth parasites such as flukeworms) .[austincc.edu]

  • To prevent yourself from getting the parasite you should boil all drinking water and try to restrain from swimming in areas of slow current or evidence of rotting would in the dry season.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Estimates show that at least 206.4 million people required preventive treatment in 2016. Preventive treatment, which should be repeated over a number of years, will reduce and prevent morbidity.[who.int]
