Schistosomiasis prevalence in swamplands of North-eastern Brazil is complicated by the presence of alternative hosts, such as the marsh rat Holochilus brasiliensis . However, the effects of Schistosoma mansoni on this host – at both individual and population levels - are unknown. We investigated the pathological effects of S. mansoni invasion in the liver and spleen of H. brasiliensis . Ten infected (5 males; 5 females) and 6 healthy (3 males; 3 females) animals had their liver and spleen… Expand
Schistosoma mansoni Infection in Holochilus sciureus Shows Sex-Related Differences in Parasitological Patterns
TLDR
It was shown that infection in H. sciureus females provides a favorable environment for the development of adult worms, despite impairing the parasite fecundity, and this rodent may be an excellent biological model for S. mansoni experimental infections. Expand
Parasitological and histological aspects of Holochilus sciureus naturally infected by Schistosoma mansoni.
Schistosomiasis is a neglected disease that affects millions of people around the world, being common in the state of Maranhão. A total of 225 rodents of the Holochilus sciureus species from theExpand
MONITORAMENTO DE POSITIVIDADE PARA Schistosoma mansoni EM ROEDORES Holochilus sp. NATURALMENTE INFECTADOS
The occurrence of non-human mammals such as schistosomiasis reservoir has always been an aggravating factor to be studied. Family cricetidae rodents like Nectomys sp, seem to have an important roleExpand
Response of spleen and jejunum of mice infected with Schistosoma mansoni to mulberry treatment.
TLDR
It is indicated that MLE extract possess a highly promising ameliorative effect against histopathological damages and oxidative stress induced by Schistosomasis. Expand
The immunomodulatory activity of Chenopodium ambrosioides reduces the parasite burden and hepatic granulomatous inflammation in Schistosoma mansoni-infection.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that Chenopodium ambrosioides has antiparasitic and immunomodulatory activity against the different phases of schistosomiasis, reducing the granulomatous inflammatory profile caused by the infection and, consequently, improving the disease prognosis. Expand
FAUNA ENDOPARASITÁRIA EM ROEDORES Holochilus sciureus (RODENTIA: CRICETIDAE), RESERVATÓRIO SILVESTRE DA ESQUISTOSSOMOSE NO MARANHÃO, BRASIL
The objective was to evaluate the endoparasitary fauna of H. sciureus , in order to identify the parasitic infections of this host and to investigate the diseases that humans can acquire when thereExpand
Ocorrência de Schistosoma mansoni no município de São Bento, Baixada Ocidental Maranhense, estado do Maranhão, Brasil
TLDR
A peridomiciliar breeding site can not always be responsible for the maintenance of positive humans cases living nearby, being necessary to take into account the routine of the infected individual. Expand
A high-fat diet associated with acute schistosomiasis mansoni causes disorganization in splenic architecture in mice.
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that there is a significant relationship between high-fat diet intake and splenic disorganization such as a decrease in the numerical density of white pulp and, red pulp and germinal center hyperplasia. Expand

Rodents as reservoir hosts in the transmission of Schistosoma mansoni in Richard-Toll, Senegal, West Africa
TLDR
The results suggest that rodents participate in the transmission of intestinal schistosomiasis in Richard-Toll but the human population is the main source of infection. Expand
Characteristics of eosinophilic inclusions within Schistosoma japonicum eggs.
TLDR
There is decreased granuloma formation in the presence of eosinophilic inclusions inside eggs and the in vitro study suggests that host cell-egg interaction is responsible for the formation of inclusions. Expand
Significance of schistosomal granuloma modulation.
TLDR
Results confirmed modulation as a exclusively hepatic phenomenon, since pulmonary and intestinal granulomas, formed around mature eggs, did not change size and appearance with time, and the peculiar environment of the liver ultimately determines the changes identified in schistosomal granuloma as "modulation".
