Philasterides dicentrarchi (Ciliophora, Scuticociliatida) as the causative agent of scuticociliatosis in farmed turbot Scophthalmus maximus in Galicia (NW Spain).
TLDR
Histopathological studies revealed severe encephalitis and meningitis, necrosis of the hepatic parenchyme, severe oedema of the intestinal wall, degeneration of muscle fibres, hyperplasia of the branchial epithelium, and/or vascular and perivascular inflammation in this ciliate. Expand
Helminth fauna of Falconiform and Strigiform birds of prey in Galicia, Northwest Spain
TLDR
The helminth communities observed were basically similar, although there were marked differences in species richness, which was higher in falconiforms (except for A. gentilis) than in strigiforms, suggesting that a different explanation is needed. Expand
Expression profiles of genes involved in the mouse nuclear factor-kappa B signal transduction pathway are modulated by mangiferin.
TLDR
Results indicate that MA modulates the expression of a large number of genes that are critical for the regulation of apoptosis, viral replication, tumorogenesis, inflammation and various autoimmune diseases, and raise the possibility that it may be of value in the treatment of inflammatory diseases and/or cancer. Expand
Parasite populations of the European eel (Anguilla anguilla L.) in the Rivers Ulla and Tea (Galicia, northwest Spain)
TLDR
The presence of some species was positively correlated with host body length, and some species pairs showed positive or negative mutual correlations of presence, but only for the pair T. granulosum–Pseudodactylogyrus spp. Expand
An Anacardiaceae preparation reduces the expression of inflammation-related genes in murine macrophages.
TLDR
The data indicate that the potent anti-inflammatory effects of Vimang are due to selective modulation of the expression of inflammation-related genes, leading to attenuation of macrophage activation. Expand
Prevalence of and risk factors for IgE sensitization to Anisakis simplex in a Spanish population
TLDR
The objective was to investigate the prevalence of and risk factors for IgE sensitization to A. simplex in Galicia, a region of northwestern Spain with a population of about 3 million and high average fish consumption (78.5 g/person per day). Expand
Intestinal helminths of the red fox (Vulpes vulpes L.) in Galicia (Northwest Spain).
TLDR
The intestinal helminth fauna of 201 specimens of Vulpes vulpes, captured in Galicia (northwest Spain), was investigated and possible relationships between human population density and the prevalence of infection of fox byestinal helminths are discussed. Expand
Philasterides dicentrarchi (Ciliophora, Scuticociliatida): experimental infection and possible routes of entry in farmed turbot (Scophthalmus maximus)
TLDR
The results indicate that the natural route of infection is probably through lesions in the gills and/or skin, thus, assays which aim to mimic natural infection conditions should probably use immersion following branchial/dermal abrasion. Expand
Vaccination of turbot, Psetta maxima (L.), against the protozoan parasite Philasterides dicentrarchi: effects on antibody production and protection.
TLDR
The results indicate that emulsion containing antigen plus adjuvant induced durable protection against P. dicentrarchi after the administration of the two vaccinations, and that this preparation can be used as a vaccine against the pathogen. Expand
