  1. Antiplasmodial activity-aided isolation and identification of quercetin-4'-methyl ether in Chromolaena odorata leaf fraction with high activ...

    Parasitology Research 113(12):4415 (2014) PMID 25199554

    Our results showed the dichloromethane gradient fraction was most effective, significantly (P < 0.05) suppressing infection by 99.46 % at 100 mg/kg body weight. Amongst its 13 sub-fractions (DF1-DF13), DF11 was highly active, with IC50 of 4.8 and 6.74 μg/ml against P. falciparum HB3 and FCM29, respe...
  2. Ultrastructure of head organs (anterior adhesive apparatus) and posterior secretory systems of Caballeria liewi Lim, 1995 (Monogenea, Ancyro...

    Parasitology Research 113(11):3935 (2014) PMID 25098344

    Caballeria liewi Lim, 1995, uses adhesive secretions from the head organs and posterior secretory systems to assist in locomotion and attachment. Ultrastructural investigations show that the head organs of C. liewi consist of three pairs of antero-lateral pit-like openings bearing microvilli and duc...
  3. Besnoitia besnoiti tachyzoites induce monocyte extracellular trap formation.

    Parasitology Research 113(11):4189 (2014) PMID 25193048

    We show that tachyzoites of the emerging apicomplexan parasite Besnoitia besnoiti, that have recently been reported as potent inducers of PMN-derived ETosis, also trigger the release of ETs in an additional cell type, namely in monocytes. Fluorescence illustrations as well as scanning electron micro...
  4. Differential inhibition of host cell cholesterol de novo biosynthesis and processing abrogates Eimeria bovis intracellular development.

    Parasitology Research 113(11):4165 (2014) PMID 25199551

    We here focused on the latter mechanism and analyzed the effects of several inhibitors targeting the host cellular mevalonate biosynthesis pathway and cholesterol processing. The following inhibitors were used: lovastatin, squalestatin, CI976 and C75 targeting HMG-CoA reductase, squalene synthase, a...
  5. Parasites of Urophycis brasiliensis (Gadiformes: Phycidae) as indicators of marine ecoregions in coastal areas of the South American Atlanti...

    Parasitology Research 113(11):4281 (2014) PMID 25245108

    We proposed that parasite assemblages, which are composed of several metazoan phyla, are potentially useful as ecosystem indicators. This suggestion is derived from the combined evidence of the evolutionary history and biogeography of multiple lineages, which is expected to be more efficient in capt...
  6. Predatory activity of the fungus Duddingtonia flagrans in equine strongyle infective larvae on natural pasture in the Southern Region of Bra...

    Parasitology Research 110(2):657 (2012) PMID 21748346

    Biological control is an alternative method to reduce the population of parasites through natural predators. A promising option of biological control in the reduction of infective larvae on pasture is the use of nematophagous fungi. In this study, the efficacy of the nematophagous fungus Duddingtonia...
  7. The study of apoptotic bifunctional effects in relationship between host and parasite in cystic echinococcosis: a new approach to suppressio...

    Parasitology Research 110(5):1979 (2012) PMID 22167369

    Cystic echinococcosis (hydatidosis) is a zoonotic helminthic disease of human and other intermediated hosts wherein infection is caused by the larval stages of tapeworm Echinococcus granulosus. Growth of the larval stage is formed throughout the internal organs, the liver and lung, c...
  8. MOLECULAR SURVEY OF APICOMPLEXA IN PODARCIS WALL LIZARDS DETECTS HEPATOZOON, SARCOCYSTIS AND EIMERIA SPECIES.

    Parasitology Research (2011) PMID 22128850

    Abstract The occurrence of Apicomplexan parasites in Podarcis wall lizards from the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic islands was studied by amplification and sequencing of the 18S rRNA gene. Species from three genera, Hepatozoon, Sarcocystis and Eimeria were detected. The phylogeneti...
  9. Redescription of Corallobothrium solidum (Cestoda: Proteocephalidea) and erection of a new genus, Essexiella, for tapeworms from channel cat...

    Journal of Parasitology 97(6):1142 (2011) PMID 21721903

    The proteocephalidean tapeworm, Corallobothrium solidum, type species of the genus, is redescribed on the basis of the examination of its type specimens and extensive material recently collected from Malapterurus electricus (type host). Some morphological characteristics of taxonomic importance are...
  10. Oocyst ingestion as an important transmission route of Toxoplasma gondii in Brazilian urban children.

    Journal of Parasitology 97(6):1080 (2011) PMID 21740247

    We conducted a serological survey for T. gondii IgG antibodies and associated risk factors in 1,217 children 4-11-yr-old from Salvador, Brazil, using a commercial ELISA kit; antibodies were found in 17.5% of the children. Age (OR  =  2.18; 95% CI: 1.50-3.17) and maternal schooling level (OR  =  0.62...
