Disease relevance of Angiostrongylus

 

High impact information on Angiostrongylus

  • Defective B-1 cell development and impaired immunity against Angiostrongylus cantonensis in IL-5R alpha-deficient mice [4].
  • Rats given an initial infection with Angiostrongylus cantonensis had moderately elevated phospholipase B activity in the lungs at 8 and 15 days after challenge, and greatly elevated levels were evident at 35, 43, and 49 days [5].
  • Pathological changes in the brains of rabbits experimentally infected with Angiostrongylus cantonensis after albendazole treatment: histopathological and magnetic resonance imaging studies [6].
  • The sera from patients suspected of being infected by another tissue nematode, Angiostrongylus cantonensis, as well as from patients with intestinal roundworm infections, also reacted weakly in the test system used in this study [7].
  • Effect of vitamin A deficiency on susceptibility of rats to Angiostrongylus cantonensis [8].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Angiostrongylus

  • The incorporation of radioactive precursors into pyrimidine nucleotides via de novo and salvage pathways was measured in gravid Angiostrongylus cantonensis by HPLC and thin-layer chromatography [17].
  • Immunodiagnosis of angiostrongyliasis with monoclonal antibodies recognizing a circulating antigen of mol. wt 91,000 from Angiostrongylus cantonensis [25].
  • The possibility of cross-reactivity was previously investigated by indirect ELISA with sera from Angiostrongylus cantonensis infections, normal controls and A. costaricensis antigen [26].
  • An optimum protocol for the cryopreservation of third-stage larvae (L3) of Angiostrongylus cantonensis was determined by: (i) use of different dimethyl sulphoxide (DMSO) concentrations; (ii) use of different FBS concentrations in RPMI-1640 medium; and (iii) variation in the thawing temperature [27].
