Minimal information for studies of extracellular vesicles 2018 (MISEV2018): a position statement of the International Society for Extracellular Vesicles and update of the MISEV2014 guidelines
TLDR
The MISEV2018 guidelines include tables and outlines of suggested protocols and steps to follow to document specific EV-associated functional activities, and a checklist is provided with summaries of key points. Expand
Genetic analysis of Trichuris suis and Trichuris trichiura recovered from humans and pigs in a sympatric setting in Uganda.
TLDR
The data suggest that Trichuris in pigs and humans belong to two different populations (i.e. are two different species), however, the data presented also suggest that cross-infections of humans with T. suis takes place. Expand
Molecular Epidemiology of Ascariasis: A Global Perspective on the Transmission Dynamics of Ascaris in People and Pigs
TLDR
It is demonstrated that cross-transmission takes place in developing and developed countries, contingent upon epidemiological potential and local phylogeography, and significant genetic differentiation exists between parasite populations from different countries, villages, and hosts. Expand
Ascaris suum draft genome
TLDR
This genome provides a comprehensive resource to the scientific community and underpins the development of new and urgently needed interventions (drugs, vaccines and diagnostic tests) against ascariasis and other nematodiases. Expand
Prevalence of gastrointestinal nematodes in growing pigs in Kabale District in Uganda
TLDR
In general, nematode infections were widespread and polyparasitism common in pigs in Uganda, however, worm burdens were moderate which may be related to recent deworming or to the practice of rearing pigs on slatted floors in wooden elevated pens. Expand
Ascariasis Is a Zoonosis in Denmark
TLDR
All of the examined Danish patients had acquired Ascaris infections from domestic pigs; ascariasis may therefore be considered a zoonotic disease in Denmark. Expand
Taenia hydatigena cysticercosis in slaughtered pigs, goats, and sheep in Tanzania
TLDR
The prevalence found in small ruminants was comparable to other studies conducted in Africa, but for pigs, it is one of the highest recorded to date, and DNA sequencing of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 gene (cox1) from a subsample of metacestodes from goats and sheep confirmed the T. hydatigena infection. Expand
Helminth parasites in pigs: new challenges in pig production and current research highlights.
TLDR
Challenges and current research highlights connected with helminth transmission in pigs are presented, including the heredity of host resistance to A. suum and T. suis is so high that breeding for resistant pigs may be a possibility, and basic research findings have offered new possibilities for future sustainable control measures. Expand
Clear Genetic Distinctiveness between Human- and Pig-Derived Trichuris Based on Analyses of Mitochondrial Datasets
TLDR
The findings support the proposal that T. trichiura and T. suis are separate species, consistent with previous data for nuclear ribosomal DNA, and future work should conduct large-scale studies to establish whether the same or distinct species are in humans in endemic regions. Expand
High heritability for Ascaris and Trichuris infection levels in pigs
TLDR
The data demonstrate that there is a strong genetic component in resistance to A. suum and T. suis infections in pigs, and suggest that resistance to both infections involves regulation by overlapping genes. Expand
