Clonorchiasis: a key foodborne zoonosis in China.
TLDR
A background on the parasite and its life cycle is provided, key aspects regarding the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of clonorchiasis are summarized, the geographic distribution and prevalence are described, and some recommendations for future research and the control of this important disease are made. Expand
Streptococcus suis: an emerging zoonotic pathogen.
TLDR
This review provides background information on the biology and molecular characteristics of this Gram-positive bacterium, and describes the clinical signs, pathology, epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of human infection with S suis. Expand
Trypanosoma evansi and Surra: A Review and Perspectives on Origin, History, Distribution, Taxonomy, Morphology, Hosts, and Pathogenic Effects
TLDR
Surra is a major disease in camels, equines, and dogs, in which it can often be fatal in the absence of treatment, and exhibits nonspecific clinical signs, which are variable from one host and one place to another; however, its immunosuppressive effects interfering with intercurrent diseases or vaccination campaigns might be its most significant and questionable aspect.

Trypanosoma evansi and Surra: A Review and Perspectives on Transmission, Epidemiology and Control, Impact, and Zoonotic Aspects
TLDR
A brief review of the basic knowledge of T. evansi suggests that there is renewed interest in the parasite, which is spreading and has a major economic impact. Expand
Adaptations of Trypanosoma brucei to gradual loss of kinetoplast DNA: Trypanosoma equiperdum and Trypanosoma evansi are petite mutants of T. brucei
TLDR
It is shown that both species are actually strains of T. brucei equiperdum and T. evansi, which lost part (Dk) or all (Ak) of their kDNA, and these trypanosomes are not monophyletic clades and do not qualify for species status. Expand
Trypanosoma evansi and T. equiperdum: distribution, biology, treatment and phylogenetic relationship (a review).
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationship between the two species and T. brucei is being discussed, and the hypothesis is proposed that T. evansi arose from a clone of T. equiperdum which lost its maxicircles. Expand
Antibodies to Toxoplasma gondii in patients with schizophrenia: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
The results suggest that individuals with schizophrenia have an increased prevalence of antibodies to T. gondii, and this association is consistent with other epidemiological studies as well as with animal studies. Expand
Physiological and pathological implications of semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase.
TLDR
Aminoguanidine, which blocks advanced glycation and reduces nephropathy in animals, is in fact more potent at inhibiting SSAO than its effect on glycation, which suggests that SsaO is involved in vascular disorders under certain pathological conditions. Expand
Dengue Fever in mainland China.
TLDR
As the major transmission vectors of dengue viruses, the biological behavior and vectorial capacity of Aedes mosquitoes have undergone significant changes in the last two decades in mainland China, most likely the result of urbanization and global climate changes. Expand
Analysis of the gene expression profile of Schistosoma japonicum cercariae by a strategy based on expressed sequence tags
TLDR
An analysis of the expression profile of Schistosoma japonicum cercariae by a strategy based on expressed sequence tags (ESTs) finds several interesting new genes cloned from this cDNA library are discussed here. Expand
