Prevalence and co-infection of schistosomiasis/hepatitis B among rural populations in endemic areas in Hubei, China.

Both hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and schistosomiasis are important public health problems in China. Concurrent infection between HBV and schistosomiasis is often observed in areas where schistosomiasis is endemic. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of schistosomiasis and HBV in schistosomiasis-affected areas, to explore whether schistosomiasis patients are more susceptible to HBV and to determine if the prevalence of HBV in high-endemic areas of schistosomiasis is higher than in low...


The impact of schistosomiasis co-infection in the presentation of viral hepatitis B in migrants: An observational study in non-endemic area.

In Europe, the prevalence rates of schistosomiasis and HBV infection in migrants from sub-Saharan Africa are high. The co-infection schistosomiasis-HBV has been scarcely studied.

Pulmonary Hypertension as a Primary Presentation for Schistosomiasis, a Case Report of Unusual Presentation.

The combination of schistosomiasis and pulmonary hypertension (PH) was always recognized as a very rare one; in medical literature, PH is considered as a manifestation of hepatosplenic schistosomiasis but not a manifestation of schistosomal infection until recently. Only 18.5% of patients that have a documented hepatosplenic schistosomiasis were found with PH. Schistosomiasis rarely causes PH without evident hepatosplenic manifestations. Here, we are reporting a case of a patient whose first clinical presen...

Maternal malaria but not schistosomiasis is associated with a higher risk of febrile infection in infant during the first 3 months of life: A mother-child cohort in Benin.

Malaria and schistosomiasis represent two of the most prevalent and disabling parasitic infections in developing countries. Few studies have evaluated the effect of maternal schistosomiasis and malaria in the peri-conceptional period on infant's risk of infection.

Assessment of urogenital schistosomiasis knowledge among primary and junior high school students in the Eastern Region of Ghana: A cross-sectional study.

Knowledge of urogenital schistosomiasis can empower individuals to limit surface water contact and participate in mass drug administration campaigns, but nothing is currently known about the schistosomiasis knowledge that schoolchildren have in Ghana. We developed and implemented a survey tool aiming to assess the knowledge of urogenital schistosomiasis (treatment, transmission, prevention, symptoms) among science teaches and primary and junior high school students in the Eastern Region of Ghana.

State and Parameter Estimation for a Class of Schistosomiasis Models.

We develop a general framework to estimate the proportion of infected snails and snail-human transmission parameter of a class of models that describes the evolution of schistosomiasis. To do so, we consider simultaneously the dynamics of schistosomiasis, captured by the homogeneous version of the classical MacDonald's model, and the measurable output: the number of female schistosomes per single host. The proposed method consists of designing an auxiliary dynamical system, called observer, whose solutions ...

Differential impact of mass and targeted praziquantel delivery on schistosomiasis control in school-aged children: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Schistosomiasis is a widespread public health concern in the poorest regions of the world. The principal control strategy is regular praziquantel administration to school-aged children in endemic areas. With calls for the elimination of schistosomiasis as a public health problem, expanding praziquantel delivery to all community members has been advocated. This systematic review and meta-analysis compares the impact of community-wide and child-targeted praziquantel distribution on schistosomiasis prevalence ...

The prevalence of schistosomiasis in Uganda: A nationally representative population estimate to inform control programs and water and sanitation interventions.

To improve schistosomiasis control programs in Uganda, where intestinal schistosomiasis is a widespread public health problem, a country-wide assessment of the disease prevalence among all age ranges is needed. Few studies have aimed to quantify the relationships between disease prevalence and water and sanitation characteristics across Uganda to understand the potential to interrupt disease transmission with an integrated package of interventions.

Preliminary evaluation of the diagnostic potential of Schistosoma japonicum extracellular vesicle proteins for schistosomiasis japonica.

Schistosomiasis is a chronic parasitic disease caused by the genus Schistosoma and poses a great threat to human and animal health. Identification of effective biomarkers would facilitate evaluation of drug efficacy and recognition of infected hosts, which are crucial for effective schistosomiasis control. Extracellular vesicle (EV) proteins are considered ideal biomarkers for developing invasive diagnostic tools. In this study, we evaluated the potential of Schistosoma japonicum EV (SjEV) proteins as bioma...

Schistosomal Myeloradiculopathy - A case report.

The most common neurological impairments related to schistosomiasis involve the lower portions of the medulla and the cauda equina. A 22-year-old woman, with no history, signs, or symptoms of hepatointestinal schistosomiasis, presented with lumbar pain associated with acute paresthesia and paresis of the right lower limb. Spinal schistosomiasis was suspected based on the disease progression and radiological findings, and the diagnosis was confirmed after cerebrospinal fluid analysis. The authors emphasize t...

Ultrasound findings in urogenital schistosomiasis: a pictorial essay.

Urogenital schistosomiasis is a parasitic disease caused by S. haematobium which is endemic in tropical and sub-tropical areas but is increasingly diagnosed in temperate non-endemic countries due to migration and international travels. Early identification and treatment of the disease are fundamental to avoid associated severe sequelae such as bladder carcinoma, hydronephrosis leading to kidney failure and reproductive complications. Radiologic imaging, especially through ultrasound examination, has a funda...

Schistosomiasis in the Middle Paranapanema river region, state of São Paulo, Brazil: Does it matter today for public health?

The Middle Paranapanema watershed is known for the transmission of schistosomiasis, and there have been autochthonous cases since 1952. This study aimed to describe this disease in space and time and evaluate its current importance as a public health problem.

Schistosomiasis mansoni in the northeast region of brazil: temporal modeling of positivity, hospitalization,and mortality rates.

We aimed to analyze trends in Schistosomiasis positivity, mortality, and hospitalization rates in Northeast Brazil.

Current progress on genomics of schistosomiasis for drug discovery and diagnostics.

For number of decades, Scistosomiasis has remained the public health and economic burden in a number of countries directly impacting over 200 million people. Past 15 years have seen tremendous progress in development of high-throughput methods for targets or compounds selection that are vital to early stage schistosome drug discovery research. Genome wide approaches to analyze gene expression at the transcriptional and other 'omic level has helped immensely for gaining insight into the pathways and mechanis...

First sliding Amyand hernia harbouring appendicular schistosomiasis: Case report.

Amyand's hernia (AH) is rare, schistosomiasis of the appendix is very uncommon, and both conditions coexisting together is an extremely rare event. Pre-operative diagnosis of each of the two conditions is usually difficult. To the best of our knowledge, the current paper is first to report both these two conditions in coexistence.

High-resolution remote sensing-based spatial modeling for the prediction of potential risk areas of schistosomiasis in the Dongting Lake area, China.

The geographical distribution of snail (i.e., the intermediate host of schistosomiasis) is consistent with that of endemic areas. The suitable snail habitus requires necessary environmental conditions for snail population. The high-resolution remote sensing provides an important tool for the spatio-temporal analysis of disease monitoring and prediction. This study conducted a typical schistosomiasis epidemic area in the marshland and lake regions along the Yangtze River, Yueyang City, Hunan Province of Chin...

The association between child Schistosoma spp. infections and morbidity in an irrigated rice region in Mali: a localized study.

Schistosomiasis is one of the neglected tropical diseases endemic to Mali. There has been insufficient investigation of the morbidity burden in highly endemic irrigated rice areas with the ongoing mass drug administration with praziquantel. In February 2005, a year after an initial mass drug administration in 2004, we performed the first cross-sectional survey of schistosomiasis in the Kokry-Bozo village in the Office du Niger rice irrigation region. In the fourteen years since this survey, there has been a...

Cerebral Schistosomiasis: Case Series from Qatar.

Schistosomiasis is the third widespread devastating parasitic disease worldwide with high mortality burden. Neuroschistosomiasis is one of the rare and most severe clinical presentation of the disease. It is caused by granuloma formation around eggs that lodge in the central nervous system, with Schistosoma japonicum usually causing most reported cerebral disease. We herein describe three unusual presentations of schistosomiasis in Qatar. The three patients are young males who presented with seizure and tum...

Dissociable laminar profiles of concurrent bottom-up and top-down modulation in the human visual cortex.

Recent developments in human neuroimaging make it possible to non-invasively measure neural activity from different cortical layers. This can potentially reveal not only which brain areas are engaged by a task, but also how. Specifically, bottom-up and top-down responses are associated with distinct laminar profiles. Here, we measured lamina-resolved fMRI responses during a visual task designed to induce concurrent bottom-up and top-down modulations via orthogonal manipulations of stimulus contrast and feat...

Inflammation-associated pathologies in a case of prostate schistosomiasis: Implications for a causal role in prostate carcinogenesis.

Urogenital infection with Schistosoma haematobium is a risk factor for the development of squamous cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder. The pathophysiology is thought to be mediated in part by inflammation, cellular damage, and bladder regeneration induced by the parasitic infection. Herein, we report an unusual case of schistosomiasis of the prostate that was found concurrent with prostate adenocarcinoma in a radical prostatectomy specimen from a man in the United States.
