Naegleria fowleri in cooling circuits of industrial and power plants in North Moravia.

L Cerva, L Simanov

Folia Parasitologica 30[2] 97-101 (1983)

Both nonvirulent (15 strains) and virulent (1 strain) variants of Naegleria fowleri were isolated from the cooling circuits in seven of ten examined plants in North Moravia. No amoebae were found in waters with a high salinity (electric conductivity more than 614 microseconds) and with a low content of phosphates (less than 0.37 mg . 1(-1)) and oxygen (less than 7.4 mg . 1(-1)). Other results of the physical, chemical and bacteriological examinations showed no direct bearing on the occurrence of N. fowleri.

Human hydatidosis in South Bohemia.

Folia Parasitologica 30[2] 123 (1983)

Hydatid cysts were found on histopathological examination of liver from 9 patients at the age of 60-91 years in South Bohemia (Czechoslovakia). These findings suggest that human hydatidosis may occur in old people in Czechoslovakia.

Tissue reaction in experimental cysticercosis of sheep and goats caused by infection with Taenia saginata eggs.

K Blazek, J Schramlová

Folia Parasitologica 30[2] 131 (1983)

In experimental infection of sheep with Taenia saginata eggs the intensity of infection may be influenced by the age of the animal at the time of infection, the height of the infection dose and the mode of infection (perorally in capsules or by means of an oesophagus tube). In non-adequate intermediate hosts of T. saginata (sheep, goats), the cellular reaction around the young cysticercus is very strong, but it differs from the reaction known in bovine cysticercosis: large macrophages, which migrate to the larva at the early phase of infection in cattle, are lacking in sheep and goats. Neither the new formation of collagen in the granulation tissue...

Transfer of delayed hypersensitivity through repeatedly sensitized peritoneal exudate cells during experimental ancylostomiasis in mice.

V V Vardhani, G N Johri

Folia Parasitologica 30[2] 147-151 (1983)

Current investigations using sensitized peritoneal exudate cells from mice infected repeatedly with Ancylostoma caninum larvae supply the evidence that these cells have the capability to transfer passive immunity to isogeneic recipients in contrast to normal cells from uninfected donors. High doses of sensitization to donors and a lapse of time between the expansion and proliferation of cells in the recipients provide a rather strong immunological readiness to expel/destroy the worm burden. The larvae bore through the gut reaching the peritoneal cavity but cannot enter the liver and/or lungs; they are thus misled (in the absence of normal guiding influences)...

Detection of Giardia intestinalis in duodenal aspirate and in the stool.

M Giboda, T Hildebrand

Folia Parasitologica 30[2] 181-183 (1983)

Compared was the detection of Giardia intestinalis in duodenal contents and in the stool. During endoscopic examination duodenal contents were recovered by means of a tube attached to the mucosa and by aspiration from the region of pars verticalis. In 102 persons, duodenal and stool examinations revealed four and five cases of Giardia infection, respectively. The results showed that both diagnostic methods are equivalent and demonstrated that parasitologic examinations of patients suffering from dyspeptic disorders are very useful.

Changes in the blood picture of white mice experimentally infected with various species of ascarids.

J Prokopic, V Figallová

Folia Parasitologica 30[2] 185-188 (1983)

The blood picture was studied in white mice experimentally infected with Ascaris suum, Toxocara cati, and Toxascaris leonina. In mice infected with A. suum, maximum number (17%) of eosinophiles occurred on day 28 p.i. In mice infected with T. cati, the eosinophilia increased already from the first day after infection, reaching the maximum (26%) on day 21 p.i. In mice infected with T. leonina, the eosinophilia increased from day 7 to day 28 p.i. and a slightly increased number of eosinophiles persisted during the whole experiment.
