INTRODUCTION Hydatidosis is the result of infection with the larval stages of some species of the genus Echinococcus. Treatment approaches for hydatid cysts include the use of albendazole, surgery, and/or medico-surgical procedures. The choice of the therapeutic surgical approach depends on the cyst number and localization, surgeon expertise, and presence(More)
Trichomoniasis may be asymptomatic or symptomatic in both sexes. The outcome of infection depends on the virulence factors of T. vaginalis, but these factors remain unclear. Genetic variability of the isolates and the host's immune response are likely to be key factors in that respect. Symptomatic and asymptomatic males infected with T. vaginalis were(More)
Cryptosporidium is a significant cause of diarrhea worldwide especially in children. Infection may end fatally in immunocompromised patients. Multi-attribute analysis was used to determine the lab utility of 4 diagnostics; coproscopy of AF stained fecal smear, fecal immunoassays by ICT and ELISA and copro-nPCR assay targeting Hsp90 gene, for detection of(More)
Lymphatic filariasis is a vector-borne health problem that has been focally endemic in Egypt for centuries. The chief vectors of transmission are Culicinae species. Control measures in the form of mass drug administration of DEC citrate treatment have been implemented in Nile delta for almost a decade. This study aimed to identify the prevalent mosquito(More)
Schistosomiasis is one of the most prevalent parasitic infections worldwide. Establishment of sensitive assays to detect schistosomiasis in situations with low transmission is crucial. The present study aimed to estimate the current status of S. haematobium infection in different Egyptian localities. Urine samples were collected from 960 asymptomatic men(More)
Cryptosporidium is one of the most common, worldwide diarrheal diseases caused by parasites. Due to absence of an effective treatment, determining the prevailing species of Cryptosporidium is a key in identifying its transmission dynamics and a necessary precursor required for the planning and implementation of effective preventive and control strategies.(More)
Serological diagnosis of active Toxoplasma infection is unreliable because reactivation of latent, hidden infection is not always accompanied by changes in antibody levels, and the presence of IgM does not necessarily indicate recent infection. Data concerning the relation between the severity of infection and the parasitic load especially at human level is(More)
