Although the incidence of anisakiasis is rising worldwide, its frequency is still unknown in Brazil. The aim of this study was to verify immunoreactivity to Anisakis simplex antigens in healthy adults and determine its possible relationship with frequency of fish consumption and allergy symptoms. A prospective cross-sectional study was carried out with 67 volunteers recruited from a military facility in Niterói, Brazil. The subjects completed a structured questionnaire and serum titers of… Expand

Seroreactivity to Anisakis spp. in the perinatal period
Transplacental passage of antibodies occurred, leading to moderate correlation between maternal and cord blood serum levels, and there were no significant differences in the mean ranks of IgG optical density levels between women who ate fish and those who did not. Expand
Anisakis sensitization in different population groups and public health impact: A systematic review
Results highlighted that hypersensitivity prevalence estimates varied widely according to geographical area, characteristics of the population studied, diagnostic criteria and laboratory assays, andTherefore, further studies are needed to overcome the documented misdiagnosis by improving the diagnostic approach and providing more affordable estimates.

Foodborne anisakiasis and allergy.
Some aspects of this food-borne disease are reviewed and its link to chronic, allergic conditions in humans is explained and its subsequent sensitisation of the human patient is explained. Expand
Anisákidos y anisakidosis: Reportes de caso y hospedadores en América del Sur. Revisión sistemática.
Introduction: Anisakidosis is a disease caused by the consumption of raw or semi-cooked seafood parasitized by nematode larvae of the Anisakidae family. In Europe and Asia, it is a public healthExpand
Human health, legislative and socioeconomic issues caused by the fish-borne zoonotic parasite Anisakis: Challenges in risk assessment
Abstract Background Nematodes of the genus Anisakis parasitize many commercial fish species and are responsible for a fish-borne zoonosis (anisakiasis) and allergic reactions. Anisakis can also causeExpand
Excretory/secretory products of anisakid nematodes: biological and pathological roles
ES proteins from anisakid nematodes, in particular Anisakis simplex, are currently applied for diagnostic purposes but recent evidence suggests that they also may have a therapeutic potential in immune-related diseases. Expand
Anisakiasis and Pseudoterranovosis are human diseases caused by the ingestion of live Anisakidae larvae in raw, undercooked or lightly marinated fish. Larvae were collected from one salted cod soldExpand
Anisákidos y anisakidosis: generalidades y su actualidad en Colombia. Revisión bibliográfica
La anisakidosis es una parasitosis ocasionada por nematodos de la familia Anisakidae, causada por el consumo de pescado parasitado con larvas infectivas (L3) de estos nematodos. En Europa y Asia esExpand


Anisakis simplex: the high prevalence in Madrid (Spain) and its relation with fish consumption.
Positivity was more prevalent among subjects who habitually consumed fresh and possibly undercooked fish than among those who generally consumed frozen fish or boiled or baked fish, and no evidence of cross-reactivity between the ELISA and other allergens was found. Expand
Seroprevalence of Antibodies against Anisakis simplex Larvae among Health-Examined Residents in Three Hospitals of Southern Parts of Korea
It was revealed that infection occurred throughout all age groups and higher in females than in males, and the allergen of 130 kDa can be a candidate for serologic diagnosis of anisakiasis. Expand
Laboratory determinations in Anisakis simplex allergy.
This study confirmed by histamine release tests that A. simplex is able to trigger IgE-mediated reactions and to describe the serologic profiles in this sensitization, and found a specific and intense immune response to an A.simplex extract was found in patients. Expand
Diagnosing Human Anisakiasis: Recombinant Ani s 1 and Ani s 7 Allergens versus the UniCAP 100 Fluorescence Enzyme Immunoassay
ELISA methods with Ani s 7 and AniS 1 allergens as targets of IgE antibodies are currently the best option for serodiagnosis of human anisakiasis, combining specificity and sensitivity. Expand
Ani s 1 and Ani s 7 recombinant allergens are able to differentiate distinct Anisakissimplex-associated allergic clinical disorders
IgE determinations to Ani 1 and Ani s 7 allergens are useful to diagnose the Anisakis infections and to differentiate among several A. simplex-associated allergic disorders. Expand
Anisakis allergy: an update
The secretory–excretory antigen is more specific for recognising patients who actually have parasites and could be used for indicating parasitation in the differential diagnosis of this type of sensitisation. Expand
Allergenic cross-reactivity between third stage larvae of Hysterothylacium aduncum and Anisakis simplex.
The aims of this study were to establish the prevalence of specific IgE to H. aduncum in 19 patients evaluated for a suspected A. simplex sensitivity and to assess the cross-reactivity between extracts of L3 of these fish nematodes. Expand
Anisakiasis, an underestimated infection: effect on intestinal permeability of Anisakis simplex-sensitized patients.
It is demonstrated that the alimentary habit to eat raw fish represents a high risk for the integrity of the intestinal mucosa, and it is suggested that this pathological situation may constitute an ideal, under-estimated, open gate for molecules that predispose to other, more important pathologies.

Sensitization to Anisakis simplex s.l. in a healthy population.
The immunoblotting technique revealed a band of approximately 60 kDa in the serum of individuals who also exhibited high values of specific IgE against A. simplex s.l. in healthy population, which would be useful for diagnosis. Expand
