Genital manifestations of schistosomiasis mansoni in women: important but neglected by Hermann Feldmeier ( )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Egg-induced lesions in the upper and the lower female reproductive tract are important complications of the infection with Schistosoma mansoni. The understanding of the pathophysiology, and pathology of genital lesions is only rudimentary, simple and reliable diagnostic tools are not at hand, epidemiological data do not exist and how to treat best the women effected, is not known. In view of recent advances in the understanding of genital lesions induced by S. haematobium the existing literature is critically analyzed and possible consequences of female genital schistosomiasis are outlined. We estimate that 6 to 27 per cent girls and women with intestinal schistosomiasis, at least temporarily, suffer from pathology induced by eggs sequestered somewhere in their genital organs. This is a mattern of concern and warrants more research into the epidemiology, pathology, diagnosis and therapy of this disease entity. (AU)

Therapy of tungiasis: a double-blinded randomized controlled trial with oral ivermectin by Jorg Heukelbach ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Tungiasis is an ectoparasitosis causing considerable pathology in endemic areas. Standard therapy consists of removing the embedded parasite with a sterile needle. There is no effective chemotherapy at hand. To fill this gap, a double-blinded randomized controlled trial with oral ivermectin was conducted. A total of 54 individuals (27 in the placebo group, 27 in the ivermectin group) was followed up for seven days. They presented a total of 192 lesions. Patients received either ivermectin (300 [vbar]g/kg body weight at a single dose, repeated after 24 h) or placebo. Outcome measures included the clinical stage of lesion, presence of erythema, pain, itching, signs of viability of the parasite, and total lysis of flea. The ratio of fleas with total lysis per total number of fleas was slightly higher in the ivermectin group; however, this difference was not statistically significant. There was no significant difference in any of the other outcome measures between the treatment and the placebo group. The results show that oral ivermectin is without any clinically significant efficacy against embedded sand fleas at the dose given. (AU)
Spatial analysis of the distribution of leprosy in the State of Ceara, Northeast Brazil by Ana Claudia Dorta Montenegro ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The aim of this study was to describe spatial patterns of the distribution of leprosy and to investigate spatial clustering of incidence rates in the state of Ceara, Northeast Brazil. The average incidence rate of leprosy for the period of 1991 to 1999 was calculated for each municipality of Ceara. Maps were used to describe the spatial distribution of the disease, and spatial statistics were applied to explore large- and small-scale variations of incidence rates. Three regions were identified in which the incidence of leprosy was particularly high. A spatial gradient in the incidence rates was identified, with a tendency of high rates to be concentrated on the North-South axis in the middle region of the state. Moran's I statistic indicated that a significant spatial autocorrelation also existed. The spatial distribution of leprosy in Ceara is heterogeneous. The reasons for spatial clustering of disease rates are not known, but might be related to an heterogeneous distribution of other factors such as crowding, social inequality, and environmental characteristics which by themselves determine the transmission of Mycobacterium leprae.

Ectoparasitoses e saúde pública no Brasil: desafios para controle by Jörg Heukelbach ( )
1 edition published in 2003 in Portuguese and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Doenças ectoparasitárias como a escabiose, a pediculose, a tungíase e a larva migrans cutânea são hiperendêmicas em inúmeras comunidades carentes no Brasil, e não raramente associadas à severidade considerável. Entretanto, programas que priorizem o controle de ectoparasitas não existem em nível de saúde pública no país. Como conseqüência da alta contagiosidade, de manejo inadequado, de negligência tanto da população como dos profissionais de saúde e/ou da presença de reservatórios animais, além de ciclos de vida complexos, o controle efetivo das ectoparasitoses é um desafio para a saúde pública. Aqui discutimos possíveis medidas de intervenção para o controle de doenças ectoparasitárias em comunidades afetadas, baseadas em tratamento em massa, educação em saúde e, caso se aplique, na erradicação dos reservatórios animais
