Hymenolepis nana is the most commonly known intestinal cestode infecting mainly human. This study aimed to investigate the potential effect of chitosan particles (CSP) to enhance the immune system against H. nana infection. Determination of worm burden, egg output, histopathological changes, oxidative stress markers (lipid peroxidation and reduced glutathione), goblet (GCs) and mucosal mast cells (MMCs) counts in intestinal ileum was performed. In addition, levels of intestinal mRNA expression… 
EFFICACY OF PRAZIQUANTEL LOADED CHITOSAN NANOPARTICLES AGAINST BOTH ADULT AND SCHISTOSOMULA STAGES OF SCHISTOSOMA MANSONI
TLDR
Assessment of value of loading PZQ to chitosan nanoparticles (CS-NPs) regarding usage of lower PZq dose (to decrease side effects) and broadening its spectrum and clear morphological deformities appeared when these schistosomula were permitted to develop into adults.
Therapeutic effect of chitosan on CCl4-induced hepatic fibrosis in rats
TLDR
Treatment with chitosan significantly improved HF, by decreasing the serum levels of AST, ALT, and ALP; improving liver histology; and decreasing the expression levels of COL3 and α-SMA.
THERAPEUTIC EFFICACY OF CHITOSAN NANOPARTICLES AND ALBENDAZOLE IN INTESTINAL MURINE TRICHINELLOSIS
TLDR
Assessment of the use of Chitosan (CH) nanoparticles singly or combined with albendazole (ABZ) for the treatment of experimental trichinellosis showed significant reduction in all treated groups.
THERAPEUTIC EFFICACY OF CHITOSAN NANOPARTICLES LOADED WITH ALBENDAZOLE ON PARENTERAL PHASE OF EXPERIMENTAL TRICHINELLOSIS
TLDR
A significant improvement in all treated groups with the highest reduction rate of muscle larval counts, improvement of muscular histopathological changes, and degeneration of encysted larvae with minimal pathologic changes of infected skeletal muscles is revealed.
Beneficial Health Effects of Chitin and Chitosan
TLDR
Scientific literature has been reviewed that demonstrated the beneficial health effects of chitin and chitosan from an immunomodulatory point‐of‐view and various human intervention trials are listed that most clearly demonstrate these effects.
Antimicrobial Properties of Chitosan and Chitosan Derivatives in the Treatment of Enteric Infections
TLDR
This review gives an overview of the preparation of chitosan, its derivatives, and the conjugates with other polymers and nanoparticles with better antimicrobial properties, explains the direct and indirect mechanisms of action of chitatean, and summarizes current treatment for enteric infections.
Acidic mammalian chitinase tuning after enteric helminths eradication in inflammatory respiratory disease patients
This study aimed at investigating the presence of intestinal parasitic infections in inflammatory respiratory diseases patients during the disease attack, and measuring the acidic mammalian chitinase
Chitosan Dilutable and Dilactin Forte: Assessment of Their Efficiency for Safety and Quality of Foodstuff
The modern natural food preservatives used to process and store foodstuff allow to ensure its safety and high quality. Chitosan and dilactin-forte are among such medicines. These preservatives are

Anticoccidial activities of Chitosan on Eimeria papillata-infected mice
TLDR
Chitosan showed anti-inflammatory and protective effects against E. papillata infection as indicated by a reduction in both oocyst output and in the number of parasite developmental stages following CS treatment.
Goblet Cells and Mucin Related Gene Expression in Mice Infected with Eimeria papillata
TLDR
The results revealed that the intestinal coccidian infection with E. papillata induced a marked goblet cell hypoplasia and depleted mucus secretion and the real-time PCR results indicated that the inflammatory cytokines: TNF-α, iNOS, IFN-γ, and IL-1β, were significantly upregulated.
Expulsion of the gastrointestinal cestode, Hymenolepis diminuta by tolerant rats: evidence for mediation by a Th2 type immune enhanced goblet cell hyperplasia, increased mucin production and secretion
TLDR
The data show that rats infected with 50 H. diminuta mount a Th2 response leading to high levels of IL‐13, increased goblet cell numbers and increased mucin2 production and release, which are seen with five‐worm infections where worms are not expelled.
Intestinal Intraepithelial Lymphocytes Sustain the Epithelial Barrier Function against Eimeria vermiformis Infection
TLDR
Results suggest that IEL play important multifunctional roles not only in protection of the epithelium against E. vermiformis-induced change by cytokine production but also in direct interaction with the epithelial barrier when intra-EC junctions are down-regulated.
Expulsion of Hymenolepis nana from mice with congenital deficiencies of IgE production or of mast cell development
TLDR
Worm expulsion seemed to be mast cell dependent because expulsion was less complete in W/Wu mice at three weeks p.i, suggesting participation of IgE in expulsion of H. nana.
Mouse mast cell protease-1 is required for the enteropathy induced by gastrointestinal helminth infection in the mouse.
TLDR
Results imply that mast cells may contribute to the induction of protective Th2 responses and, importantly, that the intestinal inflammation associated with gastrointestinal helminths is partly mediated by mMCP-1.
Reduced amount of intestinal mucus by treatment with anti‐CD4 antibody interferes with the spontaneous cure of Nippostrongylus brasiliensis‐infection in mice
TLDR
It is suggested that CD4+ lymphocytes control the amount of intestinal mucus and consequently the reduced mucus interferes with the spontaneous cure of N. brasiliensis‐in/fcfio/i of mice.
IFN inhibits inflammatory responses and protective immunity in mice infected with the nematode parasite, Nippostrongylus brasiliensis.
TLDR
IFN inhibit host protective immunity to Nb, perhaps by interfering with the production and effects of Th2 cytokines, as well as suppressing the rise in peripheral blood eosinophilia that follows inoculation with Nb.
Intake of saffron reduces γ-radiation-induced genotoxicity and oxidative stress in mice
TLDR
Significant protective effects of SAF against RAD-induced genotoxic damage are demonstrated and minimal impact of SAF on RAD- induced damage in the intestinal cells and male germ cells are shown.
