All explants showed stellate portal fibrosis with vascular proliferation, typical of Symmers' fibrosis and in four cases there were schistosomal
The boils and blisters of the sixth plague, which attacked both humans and animals, may not have been a separate disease but rather the result of fly bites or penetrating schistosomal
Schistosomiasis is associated with several patterns of renal disease including schistosomal
glomerulopathy , chronic pyelonephritis , obstructive renal failure , and chronic granulomatous disease.
 It is endemic in over 70 tropical and sub-tropical countries worldwide.'1However, cerebral schistosomiasis (CS) is an uncommon form of schistosomal
infection; most cases result from S.
Thirty one (59%) out of 53 cases of SCC observed in this study showed histological evidence of schistosomal
eggs and 22 (42%) cases were negative of any evidence suggestive of schistosomal
eggs in histological sections.
mansoni is an unusual cause of cerebral mass lesions although schistosomal
eggs can be frequently found in the brains of individuals in countries where S.
All patients were above age of 18 and below age of 65 years, with chronic liver disease (post schistosomal
and/or post-viral hepatitis) and with oesophageal varices eligible for band ligation(post bleeding or non-bleeding high risk oesophageal varices with red mark signs) [8,9].
Transplacental transfer of schistosomal
circulating anodic antigens in calves.
In schistosomiasis, cardiac manifestations are usually the result of the pulmonary arterial hypertension causing schistosomal
(1996) IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra) expression, function, and cytokine-mediated regulation during mycobacterial and schistosomal
antigen-elicited granuloma formation.
Expression of schistosomal
cathepsin L1 in Escherichia coli and evaluation of its protective capacity in an animal challenge.
Secondly: It seems that the reduced levels of protein and albumin in association with schistosomal
infection could be due to impaired synthesis of these substances in liver and/or increased leakage of albumin through intestinal mucosa induced by the activity of these flukes .
This can be considered as schistosomal
seroconversion syndrome hallmarking the onset of egg production in the human host.
Also the present study was extended to investigate the potential role of the black seeds in ameliorating schistosomal
liver fibrosis and subsequent complications induced in both spleen and kidney.
Crystal structures of a schistosomal
drug and vaccine target: glutathione S-transferase from Schistosoma japonica and its complex with the leading antischistosomal drug praziquantel.
