Emerging Foodborne Trematodiasis
TLDR
Foodborne trematodiasis is emerging because of increased aquaculture and the number of cases is expected to increase in the coming years.
The Global Burden of Disease Study 2010: Interpretation and Implications for the Neglected Tropical Diseases
The publication of the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (GBD 2010) and the accompanying collection of Lancet articles in December 2012 provided the most comprehensive attempt to quantify the
Food-Borne Trematodiases
TLDR
The changing epidemiological pattern and the rapid growth of aquaculture and food distribution networks are highlighted, as these developments might be associated with an elevated risk of transmission of food-borne trematodiases.
Past, Present, and Future of Japanese Encephalitis
JE is increasing in some areas (due to population growth and intensified rice irrigation) but declining in others.
Efficacy of current drugs against soil-transmitted helminth infections: systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Single-dose oral albendazole, mebendzole, and pyrantel pamoate show high cure rates against A lumbricoides and T trichiura infections, and for hookworm infection, albendeazole was more efficacious than mebENDazole and p Pyrantel Pamoate.
Effect of irrigation and large dams on the burden of malaria on a global and regional scale.
TLDR
It is concluded that in unstable malaria endemic areas, integrated malaria control measures, coupled with sound water management, are mandatory to mitigate the current burden of malaria in locations near irrigation or dam sites.
Urbanization in sub-saharan Africa and implication for malaria control.
TLDR
It is estimated that 200 million people currently live in urban settings where they are at risk of contracting malaria, and environmental management and larviciding within well-specified productive sites as a main feature for such an integrated control approach.
Schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminthiasis: common drugs for treatment and control
TLDR
The geographical distribution, life cycle and global burden of schistosomiasis and STH is summarized, and the current arsenal of drugs available for morbidity control, including discovery, chemistry, pharmacological properties and aspects of therapeutic efficacy and adverse events in clinical human use are discussed.
