High impact information on Enterobius


Anatomical context of Enterobius


Associations of Enterobius with chemical compounds

  • Three series of critical tests were completed on a combined total of 46 horses to determine the efficacy of single doses of trichlorfon against bots, ascarids, pinworms, and large strongyles [6].
  • Enterobius vermicularis ('pinworm') is rarely found outside the gastro-intestinal tract [7].
  • None of the staff was infected but 11 (55%) of 20 patients either had Enterobius ova on the anal margin or excreted worms following piperazine treatment [8].
  • Critical tests of the activity on large strongyles, ascarids, mature pinworms, and bots were carried out in 11 horses intraorally treated with a paste formulation of thiabendazole [9].
  • Albendazole has been tested in an open trial conducted in France, seven countries of West-Africa, Martinique and the People's Republic of China in a total of 1455 patients harboring single or mixed infections caused by round-worms, pinworms, hookworms and whipworms [10].

Gene context of Enterobius

  • Enterobius vermicularis ova in routine cervicovaginal smears. Light and scanning electron microscopic observations [11].
  • It is suggested that greater clarity in reporting can be achieved with five reporting categories: (i) established acute inflammation; (ii) no evidence of acute inflammation ("normal"); (iii) features suggestive of early inflammation; (iv) peri-appendicitis; (v) other features, such as granulomata, Enterobius vermicularis, tumours, etc [12].
