Spirometra Erinaceieuropaei


Presentation

  • We find that many putative tapeworm drug targets are also present in S. erinaceieuropaei, allowing possible cross application of new drugs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Histological key features of the plerocercoid that facilitate diagnosis with different stains are presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract The present study was performed to compare the mitochondrial genomes between 2 Spirometra tapeworms, Spirometra erinaceieuropaei and Spirometra decipiens (Cestoidea: Diphyllobothriidae), which larval stages are important etiological agents of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Genome statistics are presented in Table 1 and genome quality assessment in the Materials and methods section.[doi.org]
  • The team also identified a new gene fusion that presents a novel drug target for multiple cancers, including brain and ovarian cancers.[sanger.ac.uk]
Soft Tissue Swelling
  • Skin and soft tissue swelling was the most common symptom, followed by central nervous system lesions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pain
  • […] man of Chinese ethnicity was admitted for investigation of symptoms that included headaches, complex partial and tonic-clonic seizures, reported episodes of altered smell and flashback of memory and memory impairment as well as progressive right-sided pain[doi.org]
Erythema
  • The patient complained of a painless erythema caudal of the umbilicus with a palpable subcutaneous cherry-sized lump.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Suggestibility
  • Furthermore, the uncorrelated log-normal relaxed molecular-clock model suggested that divergence between Spirometra and Diphyllobothrium began in the late Miocene. Copyright 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Previous studies have suggested that dissolution of plerocercoid body, plerocercoid invasion of host tissue, and migration are important processes for sparganosis progression.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Finally, the phylogenetic diversity of S. erinaceieuropaei from eastern, central, southern and southwest China was analyzed, the result suggested that Chinese S. erinaceieuropaei population should be divided into two groups (Group I and Group II), and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It has been suggested that this accounts for the reduced sensitivity of the cestode larval stage to benzimidazole drugs [ 17 ].[doi.org]
  • Century burial pit in Sidon, Lebanon The team report that three individuals were Europeans of diverse origins, including Spain and Sardinia, four were near Easterners who had been recruited to the fight, and two individuals had mixed genetic ancestry, suggesting[sanger.ac.uk]
Tonic-Clonic Seizure
  • Results Migrating cerebral lesions indicate sparganosis A 50-year-old man of Chinese ethnicity was admitted for investigation of symptoms that included headaches, complex partial and tonic-clonic seizures, reported episodes of altered smell and flashback[doi.org]

Treatment

  • We examined the known targets of drugs in the parasite genome and used this to predict how this parasite would have responded to chemotherapy-based treatments.[doi.org]
  • Understand the common characteristics and methods of transmission for each disease , and learn all the applicable diagnosis, treatment, control, and prevention techniques.[books.google.es]
  • The results give more certainty for the use of specific gene fusions to diagnose and guide the treatment of patients. 15 May 2019 Honouring research excellence: Dr Sam Behjati wins award for work to unravel the identity and origin of childhood cancers[sanger.ac.uk]

Prognosis

  • However, the exact species of worm can affect the prognosis for the patient. S. erinaceieuropaei is the more common causative agent. S. proliferum is the most mysterious of the sparganosis-causing worms, as its adult form has never been observed.[doi.org]

Etiology

  • Abstract The present study was performed to compare the mitochondrial genomes between 2 Spirometra tapeworms, Spirometra erinaceieuropaei and Spirometra decipiens (Cestoidea: Diphyllobothriidae), which larval stages are important etiological agents of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • Eclectic volumes are supplemented by thematic volumes on such topics as Remote Sensing and Geographical Information Systems in Epidemiology .[books.google.es]
  • Recording such events and sharing molecular data will be critical for a greater understanding of the epidemiology of infections and to help clinicians understand the potential diagnoses in their geographical area.[doi.org]

  • Understand the common characteristics and methods of transmission for each disease , and learn all the applicable diagnosis, treatment, control, and prevention techniques.[books.google.es]
  • It is possible that some of these could have been prevented if the infection was recognized at an earlier stage.[doi.org]
