Molluscicidal and antioxidant activities of silver nanoparticles on the multi-species of snail intermediate hosts of schistosomiasis

Khaled M. Zayed and colleagues find that synthesized Ag-NPs have a clear molluscicidal effect against various snail intermediate hosts of intestinal schistosome parasites and could potentially serve as next generation molluscicides.

Community-based wound management in a rural setting of Côte d’Ivoire

Based on their study in Côte d’Ivoire, Simone Toppino and colleagues find that a community-centred wound management model based on WHO recommendations and focusing on early identification and treatment of all wounds independent of the cause has potential for broad implementation in low-income countries.

Proteomic analysis of the crosstalk between Fasciola hepatica juveniles and host intestine

David Becerro-Recio and colleagues show that the interaction between FhNEJ and mouse primary small intestinal epithelial cells triggers a rapid protein expression change of FhNEJ in response to the host epithelial barrier, including cathepsins L3 and L4 and several immunoregulatory proteins.

Antivenom protects against skin necrosis in human loxoscelism

Ceila M. S. Malaque and colleagues observe that patients admitted earlier and receiving antivenom less than 48 hours after the bite were less likely to develop necrosis, suggesting that antivenom administration has a protective effect, especially when administered promptly.
