Different SNPs in Fasciola hepatica P-glycoprotein from diverse Latin American populations are not associated with Triclabendazole resistance.
The use of Triclabendazole for controlling fasciolosis is compromised by increased drug resistance affecting livestock and humans. Although the mode of action of TCBZ is still unknown, putativeExpand

Stem cell proliferation during in vitro development of the model cestode Mesocestoides corti from larva to adult worm
BackgroundIn free-living flatworms somatic differentiated cells do not divide, and a separate population of stem cells (called neoblasts) is responsible for cell proliferation and renewal. InExpand

Developmental expression of high molecular weight tropomyosin isoforms in Mesocestoides corti.
Tropomyosins are a family of actin-binding proteins with diverse roles in actin filament function. One of the best characterized roles is the regulation of muscle contraction. Tropomyosin isoformsExpand

Low allelic diversity in vaccine candidates genes from different locations sustain hope for Fasciola hepatica immunization.
Fasciola hepatica is a trematode parasite that causes fasciolosis in animals and humans. Fasciolosis is usually treated with triclabendazole, although drug-resistant parasites have been described inExpand

A new approach for the characterization of proliferative cells in cestodes.
Cestodes show a remarkable proliferative capability that sustains the constant growth and differentiation of proglottids essential for their lifestyle. It is believed that a separate population ofExpand

Dead Sea Minerals-Induced Positive Stress as an Innovative Resource for Skincare Actives
Objective: Exposure to certain stresses in small doses might lead to a protective effect by improving resistance to other stressors. Dead Sea (DS) minerals can be a relevant source to induceExpand
