1. Proinflammatory cytokines in granulomas associated with murine cysticercosis are not the cause of seizures.
Match Strength: 6.870
Neurocysticercosis is a parasitic infection of the human central nervous system caused by the cestode Taenia solium. The most common clinical manifestations of neurocysticercosis are seizures. Taenia crassiceps cysticercosis in mice has been used as an experimental model for T. solium cysticercosis. Granulomas surrounding murine cysticerci have striking immunopathological resemblance to human neurocysticercosis; early stage granulomas were able to induce seizures in a rodent model. To assess the role of proinflammatory cytokines in early stage granulomas, we isolated RNA from murine ... Read More »

2. Effective protection against experimental Taenia solium tapeworm infection in hamsters by primo-infection and by vaccination with recombinant or synthetic heterologous antigens.
Match Strength: 5.577
The disease caused by Taenia solium is progressively being recognized as a growing global threat for public human health and pig husbandry that requires the development of effective control measures. A central participant in the taeniasis/cysticercosis transmission network is the human carrier of the adult tapeworm because of its great potential in spreading the infection. Herein, evidence is presented that a primary infection of golden hamsters with orally administered T. solium cysticerci improved the host's resistance against a secondary infection. Likewise, previous vaccination increased ... Read More »
