Trichinellosis, caused by Trichinella, is an emerging or re-emerging zoonotic parasitic disease, which is distributed worldwide with major socio-economic importance in some developing countries. In particular, it has been calculated that more than 40 million people are at risk of Trichinella infection in China. This review summarizes the current information on the epidemiology, laboratory diagnosis and vaccines of trichinellosis in China. Moreover, study of the treatment potential of using…

Dampak Trichinella sp. dalam Daging Babi Terhadap Kesehatan Masyarakat
Clinical symptoms first appeared at 2-3 weeks after consuming pork and the symptoms would gradually disappear at 4-5 weeks, but there were also some who experienced myalgia, so monitoring and surveillance of the risk of Trichinella infection in pig products and their derivatives as well as preventing transmission to humans is recommended.
Prevalence of meat-transmitted Taenia and Trichinella parasites in the Far East countries.
A One Health approach is needed to eliminate or continuously reduce the foodborne zoonotic taeniasis and trichinellosis in the Far East.
Human Outbreak of Trichinellosis Caused by Trichinella papuae Nematodes, Central Kampong Thom Province, Cambodia
In September 2017, a severe trichinellosis outbreak occurred in Cambodia after persons consumed raw wild pig meat; 33 persons were infected and 8 died, and the parasite was identified as T. papuae nematodes in humans in Cambodia.
Specific binding of aspartic protease and enterocytes promotes Trichinella spiralis invasion of murine intestinal epithelium cells
Analysis of the interaction between T. spiralis proteins and the IECs is helpful to elucidate the mechanism of the Trichinella invasion of intestinal epithelium and develop the vaccines to block trichinellosis transmission in food animals.
Effects of Trichinella spiralis and its excretory/secretory products on autophagy of host muscle cells in vivo and in vitro
The results showed that T. spiralis infection induced autophagy in the host muscle cells, which may indicate an adaptive mechanism providing a comfortable niche for the parasite.
Case Report: “Area of Focus” Atypical Trichinellosis and Fascioliasis Coinfection
This case of a 31-year-old woman with persistent eosinophilia and hypoechoic liver lesion on ultrasound highlights the diagnostic challenge posed by parasitic co-infection, which merits more in-depth evaluation to confirm the diagnosis.
Vaccination of mice with a recombinant novel cathepsin B inhibits Trichinella spiralis development, reduces the fecundity and worm burden
The TsCB-specific antibody response elicited by immunization with rTsCB also impeded intestinal worm growth and decreased the female fecundity, and might be considered as a novel potential molecular target to develop vaccines against T. spiralis infection.
Primary characterization of the immune responses in Tibetan pigs infected with Chinese Tibet isolate of Trichinella spiralis
The present study showed an increased Th1/Th2 mixed cytokines in Tibetan pigs elicited by T. spiralis, which raises serious concern for the prevention and control of trichinellosis in this host for public health safety.

Epidemiology, Diagnosis, Treatment, and Control of Trichinellosis
Evidence that the disease can be monitored and to some extent controlled with a rigorous reporting and testing system in place should be motivation to expand appropriate programs worldwide.

Outbreaks of human trichinellosis, still a challenge for the public health authorities in Bulgaria
Of all food-borne parasitic diseases, trichinellosis has the most pronounced negative effect on human health in the Republic of Bulgaria, and the country is still one of the European Union member states with a high human morbidity rate from trichinllosis.
The epidemiology of human trichinellosis in China during 1964-1999.
Pork is the predominant source of outbreaks of human trichinellosis in China, 525 (95.8%) out of 548 outbreaks were caused by eating pork, however, 14 outbreaks resulting from the consumption of mutton and game meat occurred in recent years, suggesting the increasing significance of herbivorous and wild animals as source for humantrichineLLosis.
