Concerning treatment, until recently the only definitive treatment for hydatid disease had been surgery. Different surgical techniques and procedures have been carried out and even in some cases, a liver transplant has been required. Advances in drug therapy has been influenced by the introduction of albendazole and accelerated by addition of praziquantel, but this requires a long period of treatment i.e. up to a year or more, and is not effective for everyone. A research article to be...

Foregut duplication cyst of the stomach is rare. Foregut duplications may or may not communicate with the gastrointestinal tract, and are usually diagnosed at a young age. There have been relatively few case reports describing this entity. Adenocarcinoma has been reported in four cases of gastric duplication cyst, but not in cysts that have a ciliated epithelium. Controversy exists concerning the embryological origin of these anomalies. A research article to be published on January 7, 2011 in...

Researchers report that a drug commonly used to treat diabetes may also retard the growth of fluid-filled cysts of the most common genetic disorder, polycystic kidney disease. PKD does not discriminate by gender or race and affects one in 1,000 adults worldwide. Researchers from the schools of Science and Medicine at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and colleagues from the Mayo Clinic report this month in the online peer-reviewed journal PPAR Research that pioglitazone...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Getting recalled for subsequent mammograms causes a lot of women considerable stress each year.  Thankfully, differentiating cancerous breast lesions from benign ones could soon become an easier and quicker process for radiologists. Researchers at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging in Boston recently found that a combination of optical and x-ray imaging technologies can simultaneously gather the structural and functional information needed to make this...

Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is a common genetic disease that results in chronic kidney failure. Although the genes responsible for ADPKD have been identified (PKD1, PKD2), relatively little is known about how mutations in these genes promote cyst growth molecularly. In this paper, scientists at Children's Hospital in Boston, lead by Jordon Kreidberg, investigated the signaling pathways that go awry in the disease using mouse kidney epithelial cells in which Pkd1 was...

Experimental drug decreases size and number of cysts in animal model In work suggesting a new approach to treating polycystic kidney disease (PKD), a leading cause of kidney failure, researchers at Children's Hospital Boston were able to block the formation of fluid-filled cysts, the hallmark of the disease, in a mouse model. Their findings, using a compound that inhibits a receptor known as c-Met, will be published in the September 13th online edition of the Journal of Clinical...

Detection and removal may lower cancer risk Working with researchers from the University of Michigan and Indiana University, Van Andel Research Institute (VARI) investigators have developed a method that could be used to predict whether pancreatic cysts are benign or are precursors to invasive cancer. More pancreatic cysts are being detected due to the widespread use of high resolution abdominal imaging. These advances in early detection, when coupled with the new findings, could result in...

Discovery may facilitate development of screening test Ovarian cancer kills nearly 15,000 women in the United States each year, and fewer than half of the women diagnosed with the disease survive five years. A screening test that detects ovarian cancer early, when it is still treatable, would likely reduce the high mortality, yet scientists have not known where the tumors originate or what they look like. Now, researchers at Fox Chase Cancer Center think they have answered both questions. The...

BETHESDA, March 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation announced today that its Facebook page has surpassed 60,000 fans--double the number of people in the United States who have cystic fibrosis, a rare and fatal genetic disease. This rapid growth may reflect the need for people with CF to come together and exchange information in a setting that does not put their health at risk. People with CF cannot socialize in proximity to each other without risking germ...

Soybean Cyst Nematode, Heterodera glycines
2014-01-12 00:00:00

The soybean cyst nematode (Heterodera glycines) is a parasitic worm that infects soybean plants, and other legumes, across the world. It is thought to be native to Asia, but was found in the United States in 1954 and in Colombia in the 1980’s. It can be found in Italy and Iran and its most recent sightings have occurred in Brazil and Argentina, two major areas where soybeans are grown. These worms are highly damaging to American soybean crops, costing the industry as much as 500 thousand...

Hydatid Worm, Echinococcus granulosus
2014-01-12 00:00:00

The Hydatid Worm (Echinococcus granulosus), also known as the Hyper Tape-Worm, is a species of cyclophyllid cestode that is found in the small intestine of adult canids (canine), but also is found in livestock and humans, which serve as intermediate hosts. This specimen causes Hydatid disease. The adult Hydatid worm is typically less than 0.25 inches in length and has three proglottids (segments) when intact: the immature proglottid, mature proglottid and gravid proglottid. This specimen,...
