Roles of liver fluke infection as risk factor for cholangiocarcinoma
TLDR
Current knowledge of the biology, life cycle, and pathogenesis of O. viverrini, and its role as a carcinogenic parasite are presented and the trends of age‐specific incidence of liver cancer in Khon Kaen, northeast Thailand are considered. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA sequences of 37 collar-spined echinostomes (Digenea: Echinostomatidae) in Thailand and Lao PDR reveals presence of two species: Echinostoma revolutum and E. miyagawai.
TLDR
The phylogenetic trees, ND1 haplotype network and genetic differentiation (ɸST) analyses showed that E. revolutum were genetically different on a continental scale, i.e. Eurasian and American lineages. Expand
Improvement of PCR for Detection of Opisthorchis viverrini DNA in Human Stool Samples
TLDR
PCR-positive tests identified several cases judged parasite negative by the parasitological method, indicating the new test's advantage in the diagnosis of individuals with light infections. Expand
Opisthorchis viverrini: detection by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in human stool samples.
TLDR
A polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay was evaluated for detection of Opisthorchis viverrini eggs in the stool specimens of light and heavily infected individuals in Khon Kaen province of Thailand and found it potentially useful in the diagnosis of human opistshorchiasis in endemic areas for treatment and in epidemiological investigations. Expand
Advances in the Diagnosis of Human Opisthorchiasis: Development of Opisthorchis viverrini Antigen Detection in Urine
TLDR
Due to its ease-of-use, and noninvasive sample collection (urine), the urine OV-ES assay offers the potential to revolutionize the diagnosis of liver fluke infection and provide an effective tool for control and elimination of these tumorigenic parasites. Expand
Diagnosis of early infection and post chemotherapeutic treatment by copro-DNA detection in experimental opisthorchiasis
TLDR
High concordant results between diagnoses by PCR, FECT, and worm burden indicated that PCR is suitable for an early diagnosis, evaluation of drug efficacy, and also re-infection post-treatment. Expand
Diagnostic values of parasite-specific antibody detections in saliva and urine in comparison with serum in opisthorchiasis.
TLDR
The findings indicated a complex interrelation between antibody responses in different clinical specimens triggered by liver fluke infection, indicating the potential utility of salivary antibody detection which, in combination with the conventional fecal examination method, may better assist in the identification of individuals with opisthorchiasis. Expand
Zoonotic Echinostome Infections in Free-Grazing Ducks in Thailand
TLDR
Free-grazing ducks clearly play an important role in the life cycle maintenance, spread, and transmission of these medically important echinostomes in Thailand. Expand
Oxidized alpha-1 antitrypsin as a predictive risk marker of opisthorchiasis-associated cholangiocarcinoma
TLDR
As APF may lead to hepatobiliary diseases and an increased risk of CCA development, the results identified ox-A1AT as a potential risk indicator for opisthorchiasis-associated CCA could now be explored for screening of subjects living in endemic areas where the prevalence of opistHorchiasis still remains high. Expand
Genetic variation and relationships of four species of medically important echinostomes (Trematoda: Echinostomatidae) in South-East Asia.
TLDR
The results suggest that the morphological characters used for species taxonomy of echinostomes in South-East Asia should be reconsidered according to the concordance of biology, morphology and molecular classification. Expand
