We investigated the minimum exposure times of prazicuantel (PZQ) and albendazole sulfoxide (ABZSO) required for their activities against Taenia cysts in vitro as well as the 50 and 99% effective concentrations. The results showed that although the effects of both drugs are time and concentration dependent, ABZSO acts much slower and is less potent than PZQ.

We collected 29 cases of neurocysticercosis diagnosed in southeastern France between 1988 and 1999. None of the patients had acquired the disease in France. Seizures were the most common inaugural sign. Four patients had skin lesions and very few had radiologically identifiable muscle calcifications. CT scan and MRI provided the diagnosis of neurocysticercosis and contributed to follow-up. Brain imaging showed cyst formation and calcifications. Cysticercosis serology was positive in only 52% of our patients. Antiparasite treatments with albendazole provided improvement in most patients although aggravation was observed in 4 despite a well-conducted regimen. There was one death.

The anthelmintic efficacy of albendazole intra-ruminal slow-release capsules (SRC) and albendazole drench against field strains of 5 genera of nematode parasites of sheep, where compared. The SRC reduced the number of L4 and adult Nematodirus by 64.1% and 58.3% and the albendazole drench by 98.1% and 99.1%, respectively. Neither formulation was more than 89.5% effective against either the L4 or adult stage of Teladorsagia. The efficacy of both formulations against the adult stages of Haemonchus, Trichostrongylus and Oesophagostomum ranged from 95.9 to 99.9%.

Cardiac cystic echinococcosis (CE), or hydatid cyst is exceptionally uncommon. We review the experience of surgical treatment of cardiac CE.
One Echinococcus multilocularis-infected rat served as control. Another 19 infected rats were infused with 0.2ml liposome entrapped albendazole and iodized oil suspension through portal vein. At 4, 7 and 10 d after treatment, the rats were sacrificed for further observation. The E. multilocularis metacestodes were collected, and the pathological change of alveolar hydatid was observed with hematoxylin-eosin staining and toluidine blue staining.

Adult Trichuris worms were collected during a parasitological survey of 132 people and 46 pigs in Esmeraldas Province, Ecuador. Morphometric analysis of 49 pig worms and 64 human worms revealed significant variation. In discriminant analysis morphometric characteristics correctly classified male worms according to host species. In PCR-RFLP analysis of the ribosomal Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS-2) and 18S DNA (59 pig worms and 82 human worms), nearly all Trichuris exhibited expected restriction patterns. However, two pig-derived worms showed a "heterozygous-type" ITS-2 pattern, with one also having a "heterozygous-type" 18S pattern. Phylogenetic analysis of the mitochondrial large ribosomal subunit partitioned worms by host species. Notably, some Ecuadorian T. suis clustered with porcine Trichuris from USA and Denmark and some with Chinese T. suis.

Endemik bölgelerde gerek karaciğer ve gerekse akciğerde görülen kistik lezyonları kist hidatik olarak tanımlamaya bir eğilim vardır. Ancak bu eğilim zaman zaman yanlış tanıya yol açmaktadır. Yaşları 7 ve 10 arasında değişen herhangi bir doğrulama yapılmadan radyolojik olarak kist hidatik tanısı alarak tedavi görmüş üç hasta ile ilgili tecrübelerimizi paylaşmak istedik. Hastalarımızın ikisinde tanı andiferansiye embriyonal sarkoma (UES), diğerinde ise özofagus duplikasyonu olarak saptandı. İndirekt hemaglutination testi (IHA) iki hastada araştırılmış ve negatif olarak saptanmıştır. Tüm hastalara ise ampirik olarak albendazol tedavisine başlanmıştı. Ayırıcı tanı için tetkikler şüpheli olgularda mutlaka yapılmalıdır. IHA testi tanı için sınırlıda olsa yardımcı olabilir. Yanlış pozitif ya da negatif sonuçlar özellikle akciğer kistlerinde olmak üzere mevcuttur. Ayırıcı tanıda şüpheli olgularda perkütan biopsi önerilir.

The responses of Mastomys coucha to re-exposure to infection with homologous infective larvae (L(3)) of Brugia malayi were investigated, after initial infections with the nematode had been treated subcutaneously for 5 days with diethylcarbamazine (DEC; 150 mg citrate/kg. day) or albendazole (ALB; 50 mg/kg. day). The parasite burdens, serum concentrations of IgG reacting with a soluble somatic extract of adult B. malayi (BmAS), and cytokine and lymphocyte-proliferative responses to filarial antigen (BmAS) or mitogen (concanavilin A or lipopolysaccharide) were studied. The results demonstrated, for the first time, that re-infection with L(3) was only successful in the DEC-treated animals, not the ALB-treated ones. When the ALB-treated animals were re-exposed, interferon-gamma production decreased, lymphocyte-proliferative responses either remained the same (with concanavilin A) or decreased (with BmAS), and concentrations of specific IgG decreased. When the DEC-treated animals were re-exposed, microfilaraemias re-appeared and, although production of interferon-gamma decreased, there were no detectable lymphocyte proliferative responses, and concentrations of specific IgG remained unchanged. Taken together, the results indicate that, at least in the M. coucha model of human filariasis, ALB but not DEC treatment may help to prevent the development of re-infections.

Growth performance of calves was estimated by means of heart girth measurements on 48 farms during winter housing (from December to the end of March). Level of exposure to nematode infection was measured by antibody titres, pepsinogen values, and faecal examinations. Half of each herd was treated with albendazole after housing. All infection parameters measured in March were significantly lower in the treated groups than in the untreated control groups. Treatment increased growth rate by an average of +0.007 cm day-1 (N.S.), i.e. +0.036 kg day-1. Effect of treatment varied from -0.075 to +0.100 cm day-1 among herds. This effect of treatment on the growth performance was significantly correlated positively to pepsinogen value (r = 0.321, P less than 0.05 measured in October; r = 0.265, P less than 0.10 measured in December). Control groups showed very different growth rates among herds, ranging from 0.023 to 0.170 cm day-1, i.e. 0.112-0.874 kg day-1. This variation was strongly related to several infection parameters, particularly those measured in October. The most pronounced correlation was found between the average daily gain of the control groups and the mean herd antibody titre against Ostertagia spp. measured in October (r = -0.413, P less than 0.01). These results were consistent with those of a similar study conducted on commercial dairy farms a year earlier.
The aims of this study were to determine the frequency of egg shedding (percentage of egg-positive faecal samples) and faecal egg counts (FEC) over 13 months in two different breeds of ewes, both pregnant and non-pregnant, in a mountainous region of central Mexico. Additionally, the effect of ivermectin and albendazole treatments on FEC reduction was recorded. The study also aimed to relate temperature and rainfall to FEC. The gastrointestinal nematode (GIN) third-stage larvae genera recovered from both faeces and grassland pastures in a temperate region were also assessed. Faecal samples were collected from ewes at monthly intervals for 13 months to investigate the FEC population of GIN larvae, their concentration and genera in grass samples collected from grazed and rested pastures. Egg-shedding frequency ranged from 0 to 92% and FEC from 0 to 12,000 eggs per g faeces (epg), with counts in Suffolk higher than in Dorset ewes. The identified genera were Haemonchus, Trichostrongylus, Teladorsagia, Cooperia, Oesophagostomum, Bunostomum, Nematodirus and Strongyloides. Haemonchus and Trichostrongylus were the most common genera. The number of L3 was higher in grazing lands than in those at rest. The highest FEC were recorded in the dry season due to peripartum, but the highest L3 counts were recorded in the rainy season. The coexistence of species of different geographical distributions at this site may be because there is a confluence of Nearctic and Neotropical geographic regions; thus, despite the temperate climate, tropical species can be found. Additionally, this study suggests that increasing temperatures could favour the presence of different tropical GIN species together with typical temperate-zone GIN species.

Toxocariasis is a widespread zoonosis, which may result in central nervous system injury.
Initial clinical trials in 1980 showed that ivermectin was remarkably effective against Onchocerca volvulus. Some 25 years after more than 50 million people are treated annually with Mectizan mainly within the framework of the African Programme for Onchocerciasis Control (APOC). This success has been possible thanks to Merck Mectizan Donation Program and to distribution through a novel strategy based on the strong involvement of endemic communities. In the last few years Mectizan has been used in combination with albendazole to control lymphatic filariasis on a large-scale basis in African countries. More recently ivermectin (under the tradename Stromectol) received market approval in France for treatment of gastrointestinal strongyloidiasis and scabies. Clinical trials are under way to evaluate the activity of ivermectin on nematodes (Loa loa, Mansonella sp., intestinal nematodes, cutaneous and visceral larva migrans) and ectoparasites (Pediculus humanus capitis, Phtirius pubis, Tunga penetrans, myiases). Trials are also ongoing to explain the mechanisms underlying the severe adverse events sometimes observed in patients presenting high Loa loa microfilaraemia and to develop preventive measures. Fundamental research will provide a better understanding of the mode of action of ivermectin at the molecular and cellular level, evaluate the risk of resistance of human parasites, and to determine the extent to which ivermectin could be used in association with other agents for the treatment of nonparasitic diseases.
The most significant oncologic concern with finding new pulmonary nodules on imaging in a pediatric patient who has anaplastic Wilms tumor is progressive disease with new pulmonary metastases. This case emphasizes the importance of employing a creative clinical differential diagnosis, even for patients with known underlying oncologic disease.

The aim of this study was to compare the oral absorption of two weak bases including their pH-independent controlled-release preparations using an in vitro evaluation system. This system is able to simulate dissolution of drugs, pH change and permeation of drugs through the epithelial cell membrane in the gastrointestinal tract. Albendazole-polymers solid dispersion and pH-independent sustained-release granules of dipyridamole were prepared by using a solvent method. Elution profiles and predicted absorption of these preparations in gastric pH conditions similar to those in healthy subjects and patients with achlorhydria were compared with those of a physical mixture and commercial tablets. When a physical mixture or commercial tablets were used, the elution profile and predicted absorption of both albendazole and dipyridamole were extremely pH-dependent. On the other hand, when a solid dispersion and granules were used, elution and predicted absorption were not affected by changes in pH of the flowing solution in a drug-dissolving vessel. These results are in agreement with the results of our previous in vivo study using gastric acidity-controlled rabbits. Our results suggest that this in vitro system is useful for the evaluation of oral absorption of pH-independent controlled-release preparations.
Neurocysticercosis (NCC) is the most common helminthic infection and neglected disease of the central nervous system. It is the leading cause of acquired epilepsy and seizures worldwide. Therefore, to study this important neglected disease, it is important to use experimental models. There is no report in the literature on how the parasite's metabolism reacts to antihelminthic treatment when it is still within the central nervous system of the host. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the energetic metabolism of cysticerci experimentally inoculated in the encephala of BALB/c mice after treatment with low dosages (not sufficient to kill the parasite) of albendazole (ABDZ) and praziquantel (PZQ). BALB/c mice were intracranially inoculated with Taenia crassiceps cysticerci and, after 30 days, received treatment with low dosages of ABDZ and PZQ. After 24 h of treatment, the mice were euthanized, and the cysticerci were removed and analyzed through high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) to quantify the organic acids related to the energetic metabolism of the parasite. The partial reverse of the TCA cycle was enhanced by the ABDZ and PZQ treatments both with the higher dosage, as the organic acids of this pathway were significantly increased when compared to the control group and to the other dosages. In conclusion, it was possible to detect the increase of this pathway in the parasites that were exposed to low dosages of ABDZ and PZQ, as it is a mechanism that would amplify the energy production in a hostile environment.

A single dose of 450 μmol CPs provided greater efficacy against T. suis infections in pigs than a single-oral dose of 400 mg ALB. Although these results highlight the possibility of papaya CPs for controlling human STH, further development is needed in order to obtain and validate an oral formulation for human application.
A therapeutical clinical trial was designed to study the effectiveness of Paico and Albendazole, for the treatment of ascariasis in a group of 60 children, between 3 and 14 years old, from a rural community in Huaraz. It was carried out between May and August, 2000. The sample was randomly divided into 30 cases for Paico and 30 for Albendazole, the criteria for entering the trial being a positive examination for Ascaris lumbricoides in feces. The treatment consisted in Paico juice: 1 ml/Kg for less than 10 Kg, and 2 ml/Kg in larger children, one dose before breakfast, for three consecutive days. The Albendazole was administered in a single dose of 400 mg in those over five years of age, and 200 mg in younger children. The effectiveness was evaluated qualitatively (the disappearance of the ascaris eggs from the feces) and quantitatively (decrease in the parasitic burden); in the stool examinations carried out in all cases on entering the study and 15 days after the treatment. All the stool samples were processed in the Referential Laboratory of the Regional Health Authority in Ancash. The qualitative effectiveness between Paico and Albendazole for the eradication of ascariasis was similar at 86.7%. The quantitative effectiveness was 59.5% for Paico and 58.3% for Albendazole. However, it was observed that, unlike Albedazole, Paico is 100% effective in the treatment of Hymenolepsis nana. Adverse effects were presented in 23.3% of the cases for both drugs. It is concluded that, although Paico and Albendazole have a similar effectiveness against Ascaris lumbricoides, Paico has the additional benefit of being effective against Hymenolepsis nana.

The occurrence of resistance to three of commonly used anthelmintics, Pyrantel tartrate (Banminth), Albendazole2.5% (Valbazen) and Duramectin 1% (Dectomax) was studied in locally bred sheep in Kafr El Sheikh Governorate, Egypt, by means of faecal egg count reduction test (FECRT). The faecal egg count reduction test showed that Pyrantel tartrate and Albendazole were less than 95% effective, 77% and 89% FECR% value respectively (i.e.: presence of resistance) while Duramectin showed full efficacy, 100% FECR% value. Culture of faecal samples before and after treatment in groups was done to interpret the anthelmintic resistance of individual nematode species. Where Ostertagia circumcincta and Bunostomum trigonocephalumn were susceptible to Pyrantel tartrate and Albendazole (100% FECR for each) but Nematodirus battus and Homonchus contortus have developed varying degrees of resistance for both drugs (56.3%, 48.2% and 88%, 70% respectively). Meanwhile, all nematode species were susceptible to Duramectin.

Infectious complications represent an important cause of morbidity and death in patients with transplant. Parasitic infections are less frequent than viral and bacterial agents, and are often overlooked. We describe the case of a 13-year-old adolescent, born in São Tomé Island, who was under immunosuppressive therapy after a cardiac transplant. The patient had an intermittent course of diarrhoea, abdominal pain and vomiting. She was admitted dehydrated, and Strongyloides stercoralis, Schistosoma intercalatum and Cystoisospora belli were isolated in her stools. The patient was treated with ivermectin, albendazole, praziquantel and ciprofloxacin with clinical and microbiological resolution. Her immunosuppressive therapy was reduced during hospitalisation. We believe that the parasitic infection was a result of a recrudescence of dormant infections acquired in her homeland. To the best of our knowledge, there are no reports of cystoisosporiasis or schistosomiasis in heart transplant recipients.
PubMed was searched for English-written articles published up to April 2015. Articles that reported cases of donor-derived strongyloidiasis infection in SOT recipients were reviewed for a pooled analysis.

We report a case of diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis in a young boy with no clinical visualization of nematode. The diagnosis was made based on clinical findings and detection of Toxocara immunoglobulin G by Western blot test. An 11-year-old Malay boy presented with progressive blurring of vision in the left eye for a duration of 1 year. It was associated with intermittent floaters. Visual acuity in the left eye was 6/45 and improved to 6/24 with pinhole. There was positive relative afferent pupillary defect, impaired color vision, and presence of red desaturation in the left eye. There were occasional cells in the anterior chamber with no conjunctiva injection. Posterior segment examination revealed mild-to-moderate vitritis and generalized pigmentary changes of the retina with attenuated vessels. The optic disk was slightly hyperemic with mild edema. There was presence of multiple, focal, gray-white subretinal lesions at the inferior part of the retina. Full blood picture results showed eosinophilia with detection of Toxocara immunoglobulin G by Western blot test. Investigations for other infective causes and connective tissue diseases were negative. The diagnosis of diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis secondary to Toxocara was made based on clinical findings and laboratory results. He was treated with oral albendazole 400 mg daily for 5 days and oral prednisolone 1 mg/kg with tapering doses over 6 weeks. At 1 month follow-up, the inflammation had reduced, and multiple, focal, gray-white subretinal lesions were resolved; however there was no improvement of vision.
A solitary primary hydatid cyst in the abdominal wall is an exceptional entity, even in countries where the Echinococcus infection has a high rate, being considered an endemic disease.

Based on clinical evaluation and computed tomography (CT) of the brain, 30 cases of neurocysticercosis were diagnosed. Diagnosis was supported by presence of histopathologically proven subcutaneous cysticerci in 12 cases. Three primary neurological syndromes were established i.e. epilepsy in 22 cases, increased intracranial tension in 6 cases and meningoencephalitis in 2 cases. Albendazole was administered orally in a dose of 15 mg/kg bodyweight/day for 30 days without prophylactic steroids. Follow up CT study at 3 months and 12 months revealed complete regression of all lesions in 2 cases, partial regressions in 14 cases and change in morphology in 4 cases. Transient appearence of fresh subcutaneous cysticerci as a side effect of therapy was noted in 4 cases. Albendazole, though acting slow, is considered a suitable alternative to praziquantel in medical management of parenchymal neurocysticercosis.

Hydatidosis is an endemic, widely distributed anthropozoonosis, which involves the liver, lung and other organs [Int J Urol 13 (2006) 76-9]. We reported the case of a large retroperitoneal hydatid cyst, which is a rare situation [Hepatogastroenterology 48 (2001) 1037-9; Int Urol Nephrol 32 (2000) 41-6; J Urol (Paris) 94 (1988) 445-8]. Diagnosis was suspected with blood tests and radiological examinations. A wide incision in the right iliac fossa (such in renal graft) was performed. The cyst wall was excised partially. Before, during and following the operation, the patient was given albendazole tablets (15mg/kg per day) for 3 weeks (1 week before and 2 weeks after the surgery) with blood count and liver enzyme monitorization. Especially in the endemic areas, hydatid cyst should be remembered when evaluating cystic masses in the retroperitoneum. It can be treated successfully with surgery.
Trichinellosis still remains a concern and a major issue of public health in Arad County. Implementation of strict hygienic measures, especially in the rural areas, must be a priority.
We searched the literature and the animal health marketed products and pipeline for potential drug development candidates. Recently registered veterinary products offer advantages in that they have undergone extensive and rigorous animal testing, thus reducing the risk, cost and time to approval for human trials. For selected compounds, we retrieved and summarised publicly available information (through US Freedom of Information (FoI) statements, European Public Assessment Reports (EPAR) and published literature). Concomitantly, we developed a target product profile (TPP) against which the products were compared.
