Summary of "Genotyping of human cystic echinococcosis in northeastern Iran"

Cystic echinococcosis (CE) is a human public health problem in northeast of Iran and there is limited information regarding the genotypes of Echinococcus granulosus senso lato (s.l.) in human in this region. In the present study, we determined the genotypes of E. granulosus s.l. infecting human in northeastern Iran from Khorasan Razavi province using PCR-RFLP of rDNA ITS1 region. From April 2013 to December 2016, 50 hepatic hydatid cysts were recovered from 50 patients who underwent surgical procedure. Protoscoleces were collected from individual cysts, DNA was extracted, and the rDNA ITS1 gene was amplified by PCR and genotypes confirmed by RFLP. All the cyst materials were identified as Echinococcus granulosus senso stricto (s.s.), indicating this species as the main cause of CE in humans in northeast of Iran.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cystic growth originating from lymphatic tissue. It is usually found in the neck, axilla, or groin.

Methods used to determine individuals' specific ALLELES or SNPS (single nucleotide polymorphisms).

An autosomal recessive genetic disease of the EXOCRINE GLANDS. It is caused by mutations in the gene encoding the CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRANSMEMBRANE CONDUCTANCE REGULATOR expressed in several organs including the LUNG, the PANCREAS, the BILIARY SYSTEM, and the SWEAT GLANDS. Cystic fibrosis is characterized by epithelial secretory dysfunction associated with ductal obstruction resulting in AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION; chronic RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS; PANCREATIC INSUFFICIENCY; maldigestion; salt depletion; and HEAT PROSTRATION.

A chloride channel that regulates secretion in many exocrine tissues. Abnormalities in the CFTR gene have been shown to cause cystic fibrosis. (Hum Genet 1994;93(4):364-8)

A heterogeneous group of hereditary and acquired disorders in which the KIDNEY contains one or more CYSTS unilaterally or bilaterally (KIDNEY, CYSTIC).
