Macular hole is a condition that characterizes older patients, being rare in adolescent patients and exceptionally at children. The etiopathogenic mechanism of most macular holes in children and adolescent is idiopathic. The suggested etiopathogenic mechanism is vitreoretinal traction due to a toxocara granuloma for a 9 years old girl.

A case of hydatid cerebral disease with multiple cysts is reported with the purpose of presenting this unusual form of hydatid neurological involvement and to discuss some aspects of the pathogenesis and treatment. In this patient, the liver hydatid cyst surgery two years prior to the development of multiple pulmonary and cerebral cysts suggests a vascular invasion of oncoesphere during the hepatic surgery with hematological dissemination to the lungs and brain. The multiplicity and deep localization of the cerebral cysts prevented the performance of a definitive surgical resection. The multiple percutaneous drainage of the cysts was useful in this case to reduce the endocraneal hypertension and to achieve a neurological improvement. Albendazole has proved of benefit as a chemo-therapeutic agent in these cases and Magnetic Resonance Imaging has proven useful for surgical planning.

A case of strongyloidiasis in a patient with membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis is reported. In our patient, strongyloidiasis evolved latently and became overt after corticotherapy, and it turned to be a very severe outcome and life-threatening complications, hyperinfection syndrome and upper digestive tract hemorrhage. Besides its well-known complications, steroid therapy may provide real surprises. The association of this therapy with strongyloidiasis may turn an undiagnosed inactive, chronic form of the disease into an active form within the framework of a hyperinfection syndrome which might lead to death. In our case, the diagnosis of strongyloidiasis was established only after duodenal biopsy was performed for upper digestive tract hemorrhage, which revealed the parasite. It should be underlined that under corticotherapy, the patient evolved favorably with regard to glomerular disease, while strongyloidiasis worsened. The outcome was positive after the patient was treated with albendazole and ivermectin. The diagnosis of strongyloidiasis is sometimes difficult to establish due to the fact that eosinophilia may be absent, while commonly utilized stool examinations may be negative. By analyzing our case, it may be assumed that the immune mechanisms involved in strongyloidiasis do not activate the glomerular nephropathy. On the contrary, these mechanisms seem to have an immunosuppressive effect. The "hygienic hypothesis" also needs to be considered. While on corticotherapy, patients with glomerulonephritis need immunologic and parasitologic monitoring. This is important for other immunodepressing diseases and for immunosuppressive drugs. If the patient has originated in a mining area, as is the case with our patient, or in endemic areas, this monitoring becomes mandatory. The case reflects the complexity of the interrelation between the immune mechanisms in glomerulonephritis and those in parasitic diseases, strongyloidiasis in our case.

A 40-year-old female suffering from hydatid disease located in the parotid gland is presented. Although Greece remains an endemic area for echinococcosis, this presentation of the disease is rare. Total excision of the cyst with partial parotidectomy was performed. The patient refused to receive general anesthesia and the operation was carried out under local anesthesia. Perioperative adjuvant medical therapy with albendazole was administered. In a two-year follow-up no recurrence has occurred.

Room temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) are organic salts which are liquids at ambient temperature. Composed of relatively large asymmetric organic cations and inorganic or organic anions, they have generated interest as 'green' solvents. Here we report on the solvency of alkyl imidazolium salts (PF(6)(-)Br(-)Cl(-)) for poorly water-soluble model drugs, albendazole and danazol, indicating their potential application as pharmaceutical solvents/cosolvents. The solubility of albendazole, for example, is increased by more than 10,000 times by 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate ([bmim]PF(6)(-)). Ionic liquids can be water-miscible or water-immiscible. The aqueous miscibility of a poorly water-miscible RTIL such as of [bmim]PF(6)(-) can be improved by the inclusion of a second more miscible RTIL (e.g. 1-hexyl-3-methylimidazolium bromide ([hmim]Br(-))). The extent of improvement in water miscibility was found to correlate with the hydrophilicity of the second RTIL. This ability to modulate RTILs' aqueous miscibility increases their usefulness as pharmaceutical solvents.

Neurocysticercosis, the most common parasitic disease of the central nervous system, was treated surgically for a long time. Praziquantel (an isoquinolone) and albendazole (an imidazole) are anticysticercal drugs that are currently being used for the treatment of neurocysticercosis. Both have been reported to eliminate or markedly reduce the number and size of cysticerci. Albendazole is less expensive than praziquantel, and is as effective when given for 8 days as compared to longer periods. In a small number of comparative trials, albendazole appeared to be slightly more effective than praziquantel for the treatment of parenchymal cysticercosis. Albendazole has also been found effective in ventricular, subarachnoidal and racemose forms of the disease. However, the response to treatment is not universal. Treatment with these drugs has been associated with a high frequency of adverse reactions, probably due to the host's inflammatory reaction to the dying parasites. Headache, nausea and seizures are common but usually transient. Steroids appear to ameliorate these effects and their concomitant administration has been advocated. However, no data are available to support this view. The rationale of medical therapy in spinal cysticercosis is presently based on the reported efficacy of anticysticercal drugs in cerebral cysticercosis. A marked improvement in an associated seizure disorder following anticysticercal therapy has been observed. Though seizure control is better, the total duration of anti-epileptic drug therapy has not been determined. Some single enhancing computed tomography lesions in patients of epilepsy may be benign forms of neurocysticercosis. The spontaneous resolution of a majority of these lesions has led to doubts of them being merely infective in aetiology. Also, a controlled trial could not demonstrate any beneficial effect of albendazole on such lesions. Hence, most authors recommend that these patients should be treated with anti-epileptic drugs only. Doubts persist about the efficacy of anticysticercal drugs in altering the natural course of the disease and the reported tendency of cysticercus lesions to resolve.

In vitro anthelmintic activities of crude aqueous and hydro-alcoholic extracts of the seeds of Coriandrum sativum (Apiaceae) were investigated on the egg and adult nematode parasite Haemonchus contortus. The aqueous extract of Coriandrum sativum was also investigated for in vivo anthelmintic activity in sheep infected with Haemonchus contortus. Both extract types of Coriandrum sativum inhibited hatching of eggs completely at a concentration less than 0.5 mg/ml. ED(50) of aqueous extract of Coriandrum sativum was 0.12 mg/ml while that of hydro-alcoholic extract was 0.18 mg/ml. There was no statistically significant difference between aqueous and hydro-alcoholic extracts (p>0.05). The hydro-alcoholic extract showed better in vitro activity against adult parasites than the aqueous one. For the in vivo study, 24 sheep artificially infected with Haemonchus contortus were randomly divided into four groups of six animals each. The first two groups were treated with crude aqueous extract of Coriandrum sativum at 0.45 and 0.9 g/kg dose levels, the third group with albendazole at 3.8 mg/kg and the last group was left untreated. Efficacy was tested by faecal egg count reduction (FECR) and total worm count reduction (TWCR). On day 2 post treatment, significant FECR was detected in groups treated with higher dose of Coriandrum sativum (p<0.05) and albendazole (p<0.001). On days 7 and 14 post treatment, significant FECR was not detected for both doses of Coriandrum sativum (p>0.05). Significant (p<0.05) TWCR was detected only for higher dose of Coriandrum sativum compared to the untreated group. Reduction in male worms was higher than female worms. Treatment with both doses of Coriandrum sativum did not help the animals improve or maintain their PCV while those treated with albendazole showed significant increase in PCV (p<0.05).

Only purified fumagillin was able to clear E. bieneusi from stools as well as intestinal biopsies, whereas all other regimens failed to show antiparasitic efficacy. However, only four patients received fumagillin because of drug-induced thrombocytopenia. The four patients who received fumagillin remained free of E. bieneusi infection after a mean follow-up of 10 months.

Cotton rats with Echinococcus multilocularis infections of one month's standing were treated for six months with albendazole (50 mg kg-1 day-1), or praziquantel (500 mg kg-1 day-1), or both drugs simultaneously. The germinal layer of albendazole-treated cysts differed little from control tissue apart from marginal increase in cyton vesiculation and the presence of small lamellated residual bodies. Protoscolex tissue appeared unaffected. The germinal layer of praziquantel-treated cysts differed markedly from control tissue, with increased vesiculation and mitochondrial number in those with intact germinal layers, and disintegration and detachment of the layer in other cysts. Protoscoleces were necrotic. After combined therapy, the germinal layer was either intact but with increased vesiculation and residual bodies present, or was disintegrating and detaching from the laminated layer.

The "No Program" option is the least expensive ($165,923 per cohort) and least effective option (145 outpatient cases, 4.0 hospitalizations, and 0.67 deaths discounted over a 60-year period for a one-year cohort). The "Overseas Albendazole and Ivermectin" option ($418,824) is less expensive than "Domestic Screening and Treatment" ($3,832,572) or "Overseas Albendazole and Domestic Screening for Strongyloides" ($2,182,483). According to the model outcomes, the most effective treatment option is "Overseas Albendazole and Ivermectin," which reduces outpatient cases, deaths and hospitalization by around 80% at an estimated net cost of $458,718 per death averted, or $2,219/$24,036 per QALY/life year gained relative to "No Program".

In sub-Saharan Africa, the population of school-age children is expected to increase by 205 million during the 1990s. Mortality is low among this group, but morbidity commonly affects physical growth, school attendance, and ability to learn. Given that there are more schools than clinics and that schools collect children in one place, schools are an ideal place for health education. Training of teachers as health educators will require cooperation between ministries of health and education. Some health problems can be treated in schools. These include the presence of intestinal worms (which is assumed to warrant mass treatment if 50% or more of the smears of 30 children are infected), schistosomiasis (in which mass treatment is warranted if 30% of children report blood in their urine), and micronutrient deficiencies. Teachers can be trained to determine disease prevalence and deficiency levels and to administer treatment. Body height can be used to determine the correct dosage of praziquantel to treat schistosomes. Teachers can also be trained to detect poor vision and growth faltering and can administer iodine and vitamin A to their students as well as iron supplementation to adolescent girls. One problem with this school-based approach is that it misses children who are not enrolled in schools. School health programs, however, can achieve good coverage in a very cost-effective manner, as can be seen by the experiences of Ghana and Tanzania, where praziquantel and albendazole are administered together by teachers under the supervision of local health personnel. The low cost of all of the drugs needed to combat these diseases and deficiencies combined with the existence of the delivery system has led to identification of school health services as one of the six most cost-effective public health interventions.

Eighteen cases of cutaneous larva migrans were collected and divided into two groups. Group-A was administered oral Albendazole 400 mg once per day along with topical steroid and oral cetrizine 10 mg once at night for 7 days. Group-B also received oral Albendazole 400 mg once per day along with cetrizine 10 mg once at night but they also received single application of liquid nitrogen to freeze the larva.

Alveolar echinococcosis (AE) is a disease predominantly affecting the liver, with metacestodes (larvae) of the tapeworm Echinococcus multilocularis proliferating and exhibiting tumor-like infiltrative growth. For many years, chemotherapeutical treatment against alveolar echinococcosis has relied on the benzimidazoles albendazole and mebendazole, which require long treatment durations and exhibit parasitostatic rather than parasiticidal efficacy. Although benzimidazoles have been and still are beneficial for the patients, there is clearly a demand for alternative and more efficient treatment options. Aromatic dications, more precisely a small panel of di-N-aryl-diguanidino compounds, were screened for efficacy against E. multilocularis metacestodes in vitro. Only those with a thiophene core group were active against metacestodes, while furans were not. The most active compound, DB1127, was further investigated in terms of in vivo efficacy in mice experimentally infected with E. multilocularis metacestodes. This diguanidino compound was effective against AE when administered intraperitoneally but not when applied orally. Thus, thiophene-diguanidino derivatives with improved bioavailability when administered orally could lead to treatment options against AE.

The influence of feeding urea-molasses blocks (UMB) on growth and gastrointestinal (GI) nematode parasitism of weaner goats grazing the same pasture was investigated on a farm in Nyandarua District, Kenya. Thirty female Small East African goat kids at an average age of 5 months were initially treated with albendazole orally (5 mg kg(-1) body mass) and randomly assigned into one of two groups: group I were fed UMB prepared using a cold process and group II kids (controls) received no block supplementation (NBS). The UMB were given in the evening when the animals returned from grazing and were consumed during the night at a rate of 95.0 g head(-1) day(-1). Supplementation was undertaken for 3 consecutive months from July to September 2001 and January to March 2002. Body mass of the kids and faecal egg counts were measured monthly and larval cultures were performed on positive faecal samples of kids of each group. Five goats from each group were randomly selected for slaughter and total counts and identification of worms at the end of June 2002. Significant differences (P < 0.05) were found in cumulative mass gains of kids in group I from September compared with those in group II. On termination of the study kids in group I had gained an average of (+/- SD) 20.4 +/- 1.4 kg while those in group II had gained 11.8 +/- 1.1 kg. From January 2002, faecal egg counts of the kids in the UMB group differed significantly (P < 0.05) from those of the NBS group and at slaughter, the mean (+/- SD) worm counts for the UMB group was 482 +/- 299 while that of the NBS group was 1 302 +/- 410. In all the goats, Haemonchus contortus was the predominant nematode recovered. These results indicate that UMB had significant effects in the control of GI nematode parasitism and enhanced growth of the young goats.

Several potential triggers that induce hatching of T. muris were studied, including gastrointestinal enzymes, acidic environment and intestinal microflora. Next, optimal culture conditions for T. muris L1 were determined assessing a wide range of culture media. T. muris L1 were incubated in the presence of mebendazole, ivermectin, nitazoxanide, levamisole or oxantel pamoate at 37°C. The viability of the parasites was evaluated microscopically after 24 hours. The usefulness of fluorescent markers (resazurin, calcein AM, ethidium homodimer-1 or fluorescein-conjugated albumin) in drug sensitivity testing was also assessed.

The relationship between the pharmacokinetic behaviour and the anthelmintic efficacy of albendazole (ABZ) against benzimidazole (BZD)-resistant nematodes was studied in sheep. A micronized ABZ suspension was orally administered at two different dose levels to sheep naturally infected with BZD-resistant gastrointestinal (GI) nematodes. The experimental animals were allocated into the following groups (n = 8): (a) untreated control; (b) orally treated with ABZ at 3.8 mg/kg b.w.; and (c) orally treated with ABZ at 7.5 mg/kg b.w. Plasma samples were obtained serially over 72 h post-treatment from both treated groups and analysed by HPLC to measure the concentrations of ABZ and its sulphoxide (ABZSO) and sulphone (ABZSO(2)) metabolites. Faecal egg counts were performed prior to treatment and at the necropsy day. All experimental animals were sacrificed 10 days after treatment to perform GI worm counts. While ABZ parent drug was not recovered in the bloodstream, ABZSO and ABZSO(2) were the molecules found in plasma. ABZSO was the metabolite measured at the highest concentrations in the bloodstream for up to 36 (treatment at 3.8 mg/kg) or 60 h (treatment at 7.5 mg/kg) post-administration. There was a proportional relationship between the administered ABZ dose and the measured plasma concentrations of both ABZ metabolites. Over a 100% increment on the plasma AUC values for the anthelmintically active ABZSO metabolite was observed at the 7.5 mg/kg compared to the 3.8 mg/kg treatment. The low efficacy patterns (< 24%) observed against the GI nematodes investigated indicate a high level of resistance to ABZ given at 3.8 mg/kg an efficacious therapeutic dose rate recommended in some countries. However, the higher and prolonged plasma drug concentration measured after the 7.5 mg/kg treatment resulted in an improved efficacy pattern (estimated by both faecal egg and adult worm counts) against most of the GI nematodes studied compared to that obtained at the lower dose rate. A direct relationship between drug pharmacokinetic behaviour and anthelmintic efficacy against BZD-resistant nematodes in sheep was shown in the current work, although individual variation precluded the observation of statistically significant differences in worm counts.

The administration of MBZ-OS resulted in a treatment efficacy with the cyst weight reductions higher than 80%, significantly better than the corresponding MBZ-1% tragacanth groups. The better treatment efficacy of MBZ-OS was related to the higher drug concentration in plasma, parasites and tissues. It was also shown that the injury of the liver was not significantly altered by taking MBZ-OS compared to the untreated control.

In the period of 2008–2009, the efficacies of the benzimidazole (BZ) albendazole and the macrocyclic lactone (ML) ivermectin against gastrointestinal nematodes (GIN) of small ruminants were evaluated by means of the fecal egg count reduction (FECR) test and by post-treatment identification of surviving third stage (L3) larvae after coproculture. Sheep (n=28) and goat (n=28) flocks from three areas of Norway were randomly selected to assess the prevalence of anthelmintic resistance (AR), whereas only lambs from non-randomly selected sheep flocks (n=32) with a farm management that could select for AR were investigated the second year. Only flocks with a mean excretion of nematode eggs per gram feces (EPG) ≥ 150 at time of treatment were included in the survey. In total, 48 (80%) and 13 (46.4%) of the selected sheep and goat flocks, respectively, fulfilled the inclusion criteria. The proportions of flocks classified as resistant (i.e., FECR <95% and with a lower 95% confidence interval of <90%) for the BZ drug albendazole were 10.5% and 31.0% in the randomly and non-randomly selected sheep flocks, respectively. When restricting the area to Rogaland County, eight flocks out of ten (80%) non-randomly selected sheep flocks showed BZ resistance. The efficacy of ML was 100% in all surveyed sheep and goat flocks. In post-treatment coprocultures from the non-randomly selected flocks, the main nematode genera were Teladorsagia/Trichostrongylus in five flocks, Haemonchus in two flocks, and a mixture of these genera in the remaining two flocks. In the goat flocks, the pre-treatment infection levels of GIN were low compared to what was found in the sheep flocks. Still, in one flock, AR against BZ in Teladorsagia/Trichostrongylus was found. New strategies and recommendations to face the emerging AR situation in Rogaland County in order to limit the spread of resistant nematodes within and into other areas are urgently needed.

Osseous hydatidosis is buy albenza reported in only 0.5-2.5% of the cases. The scapulohumeral localization is extremely rare. A 39-year-old woman, born in a rural area of Tunisia, presented swelling and tenderness of the left shoulder with limited motion 7 days after a minor trauma. Plain radiographs, CT and MRI showed osteolytic scapulohumeral lesions, cortical rupture and multiple cysts in the muscles, which were suggestive of hydatidosis. Indirect haemagglutination test using hydatid antigen was positive (1/280). The patient refused radical surgery and underwent resection of axillary cysts. Albendazole was given in the recommended dose but was stopped immediately due to hepatic toxicity. Scapulohumeral hydatidosis is extremely rare, often invasive and behaves like a locally malignant bone tumour. Its treatment is also difficult.

Echinococcosis is a zoonotic infection caused by cestode species of the genus Echinococcus; in addition, this zoonosis has long been neglected as a parasitic disease and has limited treatment options. Clinical drugs such as benzimidazole derivatives have limited treatment efficacy. The current study evaluated a novel drug, osthole, with low toxicity and high activity against Echinococcus in vitro and in vivo. The results in vitro indicated that the viability of Echinococcus granulosus protoscoleces in the group treated with osthole (120μM) decreased by 100% within 3days. In vivo experiments were conducted using parasite-infected mice. For this purpose, three groups of infected mice were treated daily for 6 weeks with albendazole (ABZ, 100mg/kg, positive control group), osthole (100mg/kg, experimental group), or honey/PBS (100mg/kg, negative control group), respectively. The osthole- and ABZ-treated groups presented a significant reduction in wet weight of metacestodes, increase in the level of interleukin (IL)-4 and the percentage of eosinophils compared with the control group. Osthole exhibited a high activity against echinococcosis in vivo. In addition, the toxicity of osthole was evaluated via an in vitro 3-(4,5)-dimethylthiahiazo buy albenza (-z-y1)-3,5-di-phenytetrazoliumromide (MTT) assay, as well as via morphological observation and calculation of liver and kidney function indexes in vivo. No obvious toxic effects of osthole were observed in our study. Therefore, this novel drug may be a promising alternative to benzimidazole in anti-echinococcosis chemotherapy.

Human cystic echinococcosis (CE), caused by Echinococcus granulosus, is one of the most important and widespread parasitic zoonoses. As one of the problems that can be encountered after treating CE patients is the risk of postsurgical relapses or treatment failure, a long-term clinical and serological follow-up is required to evaluate the success and failure of therapy. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to identify the best diagnostic and prognostic ELISA markers in patients with CE. The cohort comprised 50 patients with symptomatic CE treated with antihelminthic drugs and surgery, who were followed up clinically and radiologically for a mean of 6 years (range 4-8 years). The results clearly indicate that the hydatid specific antibodies of IgE, IgG1 and IgG4 are the most important antibodies for the serological diagnosis of cystic echinococcosis during the active stage of the disease. None of the serum samples from healthy controls gave a non-specific reaction with IgE, IgG1 or IgG4, and a considerably reduced cross-reaction was observed with these antibodies. During post-operative follow-up, the IgM, IgE, IgG1, IgG2 and IgG4 antibody response provided the best correlate buy albenza of disease activity. The detection of total IgG and IgG3 subclass antibody response for the assessment of post-treatment disease activity among CE patients was insensitive. All patients responded to treatment except 2 women (32 and 36 years old), in whom multiple cysts (12 and 7 cysts) were detected in the liver and lung two years after the first operation. Hence, it can be concluded that the CE-specific antibodies of IgE, IgG1 and IgG4 are the best immunological markers for diagnosis and prognosis of CE patients.

The average number of drugs prescribed per encounter was 1.23 with maximum of five. The percentage of buy albenza encounters in which antimicrobials and anthelmintics was prescribed were 54.4% (1216/2235) and 38.9% (869/2235), respectively. The percentages of drugs prescribed by generic name and from essential veterinary drug list were 90.1% (2014/2235) and 99.7% (2229/2235), respectively. The most commonly prescribed antimicrobials and anthelmintics were oxytetracycline 1016 (45.5%), penicillin and streptomycin combination 168 (7.5%), sulfa drugs 23 (1.0%), and albendazole 732 (32.8%) and ivermectin 137 (6.1%). Among the 1819 animal-patient encounters, only 57% (n = 1037) of the prescriptions were written adequately, 43% (n = 782) incorrectly prescribed and 1179 cases of the adequately specified prescription were tentatively diagnosed. For 656 (53.9%) and 233 (26.8%) inadequately specified cases antimicrobials and anthelmintics were prescribed, respectively. Antibiotics were prescribed irrationally for cases which were tentatively diagnosed as parasitic 21.6 % (n = 262) and viral to prevent secondary bacterial complications 6.0% (n = 73). Among all patients that were admitted to veterinary clinics, 96.6% (1757) were treated empirically without getting correct laboratory-supported diagnosis. Chi Square test for trend analysis showed a statistically significant association between irrational drug usage and year (p = 0.000).

The objective of this study was to investigate an interaction between nematodes and gut Enterobacteriaceae that use benzimidazoles as a carbon source. By addressing this objective, we identified an anthelmintic resistance-like buy albenza mechanism for gastrointestinal nematodes. We isolated 30 gut bacteria (family Enterobacteriaceae) that subsist on and putatively catabolize benzimidazole-class anthelmintics. C. elegans was protected from the effects of benzimidazoles when co-incubated with these Enterobacteriaceae that also protect adult ascarids from the effects of albendazole. This bacterial phenotype represents a novel mechanism by which gastrointestinal nematodes are potentially spared from the effects of benzimidazoles, without any apparent fitness cost to the parasite.

Brachiola vesicularum, n. g., n. sp., is a new microsporidum associated with AIDS and myositis. Biopsied muscle tissue, examined by light and electron microscopy, revealed the presence of organisms developing in direct contact with muscle cell cytoplasm and fibers. No other tissue types were infected. All parasite stages contain diplokaryotic nuclei and all cell division is by binary fission. Sporogony is disporoblastic, producing 2.9 x 2 microns diplokaryotic spores containing 8-10 coils of the polar filament arranged in one to three rows, usually two. Additionally, this microsporidium produces electron-dense extracellular secretions and vesiculotubular appendages similar to Nosema algerae. However, the production of protoplasmic extensions which may branch and terminate in extensive vesiculotubular structures is unique to this parasite. Additionally, unlike Nosema algerae, its development occurred at warm blooded host temperature (37-38 degrees C) and unlike Nosema connori, which disseminates buy albenza to all tissue types, B. vesicularum infected only muscle cells. Thus, a new genus and species is proposed. Because of the similarities with the genus Nosema, this new genus is placed in the family Nosematidae. Successful clearing of this infection (both clinically and histologically) resulted from treatment with albendazole and itraconozole.

Mice and gerbils were infected of metacestode tissues by intraperitoneal (i.p.) transplantation and treated with albendazole-medicated feeds. The effects were evaluated by comparison of the treated and control groups in terms of buy albenza host mortality, larval metastases to lungs and liver, final larval weight, histopathological, and ultrastructural examination of metacestode tissues. Viability of metacestode tissues at necropsy of treated animals was tested by intraperitoneal transplantation into uninfected animals.

Previous studies in our laboratory have shown that albendazole is effective against Giardia spp. in vitro and in vivo, prompting an investigation of the effects of several related benzimidazoles (BZs) on the viability of this protozoan parasite. A range of BZs was tested, and their effects were compared with those of a buy albenza number of microtubule inhibitors. The effects produced by the two types of drugs were markedly similar, namely, trophozoite detachment and distortion of morphology and general structure, indicating a potential antimicrotubule mode of action for BZs. Mebendazole, albendazole, and fenbendazole proved to be among the most effective BZs tested, exhibiting apparent irreversibility. Nocodazole, oxfendazole, and albendazole sulfoxide, among others, produced transient inhibitions only. Further studies are required to evaluate all available BZs and other antigiardial agents to ensure the development of the most effective and safest antigiardial agent possible.

We report the case of a 69-year-old man with acute pulmonary echinococcosis. A computed tomographic scan of the thorax revealed the presence of multiple nodules in both lungs, and laboratory tests showed eosinophilia and the presence of antibodies against Echinococcus granulosus. Therapy with albendazole led to resolution of the pulmonary nodules and a normalization of the white cell count. To our knowledge this is the first described case of acute echinococcosis, as the diagnosis of Altace Dose Range this disease is usually delayed to chronic phases. Therefore, finding unexplained eosinophilia, especially in association with pulmonary nodules, should lead one to suspect acute hydatid disease.

Gastrointestinal nematodes resistant to anthelmintics have been reported in several regions of Brazil, and they may be associated with economic losses for the cattle industry. This study aimed to evaluate the resistance status of gastrointestinal nematodes from naturally infected beef cattle to several commercially available anthelmintics, as well as to test the efficacy of combinations of anthelmintics against multi-resistant gastrointestinal nematodes. Ten farms located in Rio Grande do Sul state were selected by: farmers' consent; extensive raising system; availability of calves aged from 7 to 9 months naturally infected by gastrointestinal nematodes; absence of anthelmintic treatment for 60 days before the study; and presence of 70-100 calves or more of both genders with ≥ 200 eggs per gram of feces (EPG) ( Elavil 60 Mg sensitivity of 50 EPG). These calves were distributed into 10 groups (of 7-10 animals) per farm and treated with ivermectin, doramectin, eprinomectin, fenbendazole, closantel, nitroxynil, disophenol, levamisole, albendazole, or moxidectin. Feces were collected 2 days before treatment and 14 days after treatment. Additional groups of 7-10 calves were used to test six different two-drug combinations at four of the studied farms. In general terms, fenbendazole was the most effective drug, followed by levamisole, disophenol, and moxidectin. However, parasite resistance to multiple drugs was found in all herds, especially in the genera Cooperia spp., Trichostrongylus spp., and Haemonchus spp.. Some of the two-drug combinations were effective against nematode populations identified as resistant to the same compounds when used as single drugs. The most effective combinations were moxidectin + levamisole, doramectin + fenbendazole, and levamisole + closantel. In this study, parasites resistant to the main commercially available anthelmintics were found in all herds, and some combinations of two active components belonging to different chemical groups were effective against multi-drug resistant gastrointestinal nematodes.

We describe a 65-year-old male who presented with acute onset inability to read, without any difficulty in writing. A clinical diagnosis of alexia without agraphia was made and the patient was subjected to routine investigations including contrast MRI. MRI showed a ring-enhancing lesion in left occipital area, suggestive of neurocysticercosis supported by quantitative enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay from purified cell fraction of taenia solium cysticerci (PCF-ELISA). Patient was treated with albendazole and prednisolone Generic Viagra for one week. The clinical manifestation as well as the radiological finding resolved after treatment.

The clinical and epidemiologic aspects of infection with Ascaris lumbricoides were studied in a random stratified sample of the population of the subdistrict of Cavacos, municipality of Alterosa (Minas Gerais, Brazil). The effect of mass treatment with a single dose of albendazole on the prevalence and intensity of infection was also studied six months later in the same population. During the first phase of the study, a questionnaire was applied to 248 individuals to obtain information about the socioeconomic, sanitary and clinical conditions of the population surveyed. A total of 230 fecal samples were also examined by the Kato-Katz technique in order to determine the intensity of A. lumbricoides infection. Two hundred and two individuals were simultaneously submitted to blood counts and 70 children aged 12 years or less were evaluated for nutritional status. The presence of A. lumbricoides and other helminth eggs was also determined in 22 soil samples collected in the urban zone of Cavacos. Infection with enteroparasitic helminths was detected in 29.1% of the sample, with a predominance of A. lumbricoides (23.9%). Parasitism and/or intensity of A. lumbricoides infection were significantly correlated with age range (15 years or less), social class, sanitary and living conditions (water, sewage and domiciliary area per person), and presence of abdominal pain. However, these parameters were not correlated with nutritional status or hematocrit levels. During the second phase of the study, a slight but not statistically significant decrease in the prevalence of A. lumbricoides infection was detected after treatment with albendazole. However, an important and significant reduction in the amount of Lasix Oral Medication A. lumbricoides eggs eliminated through the feces was detected, indicating that the intensity of A. lumbricoides infection was lower in all the age ranges of the Cavacos population, especially among younger individuals, even six months after administration of the anthelminthic agent.

Hookworm (Ancylostoma duodenale) and other enteric parasites such as Giardia and Hymenolepis are common in Aboriginal communities Noroxin Medication in northem Australia, and their presence is associated with iron deficiency, anaemia, and failure to thrive. We report the outcome of a sustained, community-based control programme that used regular albendazole in one isolated community. Whereas hookworm has been effectively controlled by the programme, no sustained effect on the prevalence of Giardia and Hymenolepis was seen; the control of these parasites will depend on improvements in health education. This programme might serve as a model for community-based or population-based drug treatment programmes elsewhere.

A randomized controlled trial was carried out to study the efficacy of combined albendazole and praziquantel in the treatment of giardiasis in school-age children. Eighty-four children were randomly allocated to 3 groups: group 1 (n = 31) albendazole 400 mg combined with praziquantel 20 mg/kg; group 2 (n = 26) albendazole 800 mg as a single dose; group 3 (n = 27) tinidazole 50 mg/kg as a single dose. The treatment was considered curative when Giardia was not found in two consecutive stool samples. The parasitological cure rate was 74.2% for combined single-dose albendazole-praziquantel, 50% and 92.6% in the albendazole and tinidazole groups respectively (p = 0.0023). There was no statistically significant difference between the cure rates of the combined regimen and tinidazole (p > 0.05). This combined regimen was considered safe, with only minor side-effects being observed. Of the single-dose regimens, tinidazole still achieves the highest parasitological cure rate for giardiasis. The albendazole-praziquantel combined regimen may be an alternative single-dose therapy for giardiasis in children, especially as this combination will eradicate common intestinal protozoa and co-existing helminths. Whether the dosage of this combination treatment should be adjusted Azulfidine 500mg Tablet for G. intestinalis remains to be established by further study.

Fifteen cases of alveolar hydatid disease were treated with albendazole in the dosage of 20 mg/kg/d x 30 days for 12-60 courses. All cases were followed up 1-5 years (average 38 months) by ultrasonic scanning of liver and chest X- Tofranil 35 Mg ray films. One patient whose hepatic lesion was converted into fibro-calcific after treatment was apparently cured. Twelve patients were symptomatically improved: jaundice (4 cases) and hemoptysis (2 cases) disappeared, with reduction in size of lesions in the liver and lung. Two patients in the late stage of disease with huge and extensive nodular masses in both lobes of the liver were not improved. Evidently, albendazole is effective in the treatment of alveolar hydatid disease. Early diagnosis and early treatment are to be emphasized.
