Track 1: Parasitology

Parasitic infections/worms can be studied from many angles: we can focus on the parasites, their hosts, the environments they share and the ways in which they interact. People working in this field come from numerous backgrounds, including zoology, physiology, biochemistry, immunology, molecular biology, pharmacology, ecology, economics, anthropology, sociology, engineering, agriculture, education, mathematics and, of course, human and veterinary medicine. Specific disciplines focus on specific aspects, thus parasitological knowledge may be fragmentary.

Track 2: Medical Parasitology:

Medical parasitology traditionally has included the study of three major groups of animals: parasitic protozoa, parasitic helminths (worms), and those arthropods that directly cause disease or act as vectors of various pathogens. A parasite is a pathogen that simultaneously injures and derives sustenance from its host. Some organisms called parasites are actually commensals, in that they neither benefit nor harm their host (for example, Entamoeba coli). Although parasitology had its origins in the zoologic sciences, it is today an interdisciplinary field, greatly influenced by microbiology, immunology, biochemistry, and other life sciences.A misconception about Parasitic worms is that they occur only in tropical areas. Although most parasitic infections are more prevalent in the tropics, many people in temperate and subtropical areas also become infected, and visitors to tropical countries may return with a parasite infection.

Track 4: Experimental Immunoparasitology

Immunoparasitology is "the study of the immunology of host-parasite relationships". Parasites are pathogens that simultaneously injure and derive sustenance from its host. They are skilled evaders of host immunity of host pathogen interactions. Parasites are the organisms that complete part or all of their life cycle within a host organism. Infections of humans caused by parasites number in billions and range from relatively innocuous to fatal. The diseases caused by these parasites constitute major human health problems throughout the world. The incidence of many parasitic infections (eg. schistosomiasis, malaria) have increased rather than decreased in recent years. Other parasitic illnesses have increased in importance as a result of the AIDS epidemic (eg., cryptosporidiosis, Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, and strongyloidiasis).Like other pathogens, parasites must survive in the face of a highly potent immune system. Over millions of years of evolution, they succeed in this through a great diversity of strategies for avoiding immune detection, suppressing cellular immunity and deflecting immune attack mechanisms.Similarly hosts have evolved resistance in various ways to overcome their entry and existence. Host- parasite interactions provide fascinating examples of evolutionary 'arms-races' in which the immune system plays a key role.

Track 5: Structural & Molecular Parasitology

Structural parasitology is the study of structures of parasitic proteins.  Among protozoan parasites, the phylum of Apicomplexa includes organisms responsible for malaria, toxoplasmosis and cryptosporidiosis.  Trypanosoma and Leishmania parasites, belonging to the phylum of Kinetoplastida, cause Chagas disease, African Sleeping Disease and visceral leishmaniasis.  For some of these diseases, such as malaria, existing drugs face the threat of resistance.  For others, such as cryptosporidiosis, there is no effective chemotherapy.

Molecular Parasitology involves molecular biology and biochemistry of parasitic worms and helminths and their interactions with both the definitive and intermediate host. The main subject areas covered are the structure, biosynthesis, degradation, properties and function of DNA, RNA, proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and small molecular-weight substances, drug target characterization and the mode of action of antiparasitic agents.

Track 6: Vector-borne diseases

Vector-borne diseases are parasitic infections transmitted by the bite of infected arthropod species, such as mosquitoes, ticks, triatomine bugs, sandflies, and blackflies. Arthropod vectors are cold-blooded (ectothermic) and thus especially sensitive to climatic factors. Weather influences survival and reproduction rates of vectors, in turn influencing habitat suitability, distribution and abundance; intensity and temporal pattern of vector activity (particularly biting rates) throughout the year; and rates of development, survival and reproduction of pathogens within vectors. However, climate is only one of many factors influencing vector distribution, such as habitat destruction, land use, pesticide application, and host density. It includes:

Track 7: Pathogens: Tropical Veterinary Medicine

For a person or companion animal to acquire a tick-borne disease requires that that individual gets bitten by a tick and that that tick feeds for a sufficient period of time. The feeding time required to transmit pathogens differs for different ticks and different pathogens. Transmission of the bacteria that causes Lyme disease is well understood to require a substantial feeding period.

In the United States, some ticks carry pathogens that can cause human disease, including:

Anaplasmosis is transmitted to humans by tick bites primarily from the blacklegged tick (Ixodes scapularis) in the northeastern and upper midwestern U.S. and the western blacklegged tick (Ixodes pacificus) along the Pacific coast.

Babesiosis is caused by microscopic parasites that infect red blood cells. Most human cases of babesiosis in the U.S. are caused by Babesia microti. Babesia microti is transmitted by the blacklegged tick (Ixodes scapularis) and is found primarily in the northeast and upper midwest.

Borrelia miyamotoi infection has recently been described as a cause of illness in the U.S. It is transmitted by the blacklegged tick (Ixodes scapularis) and has a range similar to that of Lyme disease.

Colorado tick fever is caused by a virus transmitted by the Rocky Mountain wood tick (Dermacentor andersoni). It occurs in the the Rocky Mountain states at elevations of 4,000 to 10,500 feet.

Ehrlichiosis is transmitted to humans by the lone star tick (Ambylomma americanum), found primarily in the southcentral and eastern U.S.

Heartland virus infection has been identified in eight patients in Missouri and Tennessee as of March 2014. Studies suggest that Lone Star ticks may transmit the virus. It is unknown if the virus may be found in other areas of the U.S.

Track 8: Pathogenesis and Immunity

Resistance to parasitic worms/protozoa appears to be similar to resistance against other infectious agents, although the mechanisms of resistance in protozoan infections are not yet as well understood. Resistance can be divided into two main groups of mechanisms: (1) nonspecific mechanism(s) or factor(s) such as the presence of a nonspecific serum component that is lethal to the parasite; and (2) specific mechanism(s) involving the immune system. Probably the best studied nonspecific mechanisms involved in parasite resistance are the ones that control the susceptibility of red blood cells to invasion or growth of plasmodia, the agents of malaria.

Track 9: Malaria Research

Around 50% of the confirmed malaria cases are P. vivax cases. Several elements make it difficult to control: it has a unique biology (generation of hypnzoites in the liver stage) with a large prevalence of asymptomatic cases among semi-immune populations, it responds differently to anti-malarials than P. falciparum and research in the past years on P. vivax has been poorly funded leading to few tools and approaches for control, the current tools for radical cure (14-days of primaquine) poses a challenge of adherence to treatment and in places where P. vivax transmission occurs, mixed infections with P. falciparum are common. Basic and operational research on P. vivax needs to be expanded and strong BCC programs are required to ensure adherence to treatments. In addition, regional cooperation networks could be created to share practices on the control of P. vivax malaria.

Track 10: Approaches: Parasitic Disease Control

Control and eventual elimination of human parasitic diseases requires novel approaches, particularly in the areas of diagnostics, mathematical modelling, monitoring, evaluation, surveillance and public health response.Recent developments in new diagnostic tools, however, have opened new avenues for a vast improvement in parasite detection. Firstly, a number of newer serology-based assays that are highly specific and sensitive have emerged, such as the Falcon assay screening test ELISA (FAST-ELISA) , Dot-ELISA , rapid antigen detection system (RDTS) , and luciferase immunoprecipitation system (LIPS) . Secondly, molecular-based approaches such as loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) , real-time polymerase chain reaction , and Luminex  have shown a high potential for use in parasite diagnosis with increased specificity and sensitivity. Thirdly, proteomic technology has also been introduced for the discovery of biomarkers using tissues or biological fluids from the infected host.

Track 11: Fish Parasitic Diseases

The majority of the fish parasites which cause disease in fish include protozoal parasites.  Typically, these parasites are present in large numbers either on the surface of the fish, within the gills, or both. When they are present in the gills, they cause problems with respiration and death will commonly occur when additional stressors are present in the aquatic environment.  Protozoal parasites on the skin, fins or scales only, (i.e., not affecting the gills) usually do not result in death, unless they are accompanied by a secondary bacterial infection.  These include species found on external surfaces and species found in specific organs. Most protozoa have direct life cycles, but the myxosporidia require an invertebrate intermediate host.

Market Analysis Report

Importance & Scope:

Performs basic research here parasite of humans and animals at the level of molecules, cells and whole organisms. The mission is to acquire, enhance and distribute knowledge about the biology and ecology of parasitic protozoa and eukaryotic microorganisms, helminths and arthropods. The Institutes in Czech Republic carries out not only research but also education on a national and international level. The main research areas encompass protistology, helminthology, and medical entomology, including studies on the causative agents of the infections transmitted by arthropods.

Conference Highlights:

  • General Parasitology
  • Medical Protozology
  • Medical Helminthology
  • Medical Parasitology
  • Medical Entomology
  • Veterinary Parasitology
  • Fish Parasites & risks to Public Health
  • Experimental Immunoparasitology
  • Structural Parasitology
  • Molecular and Biochemical Parasitology
  • Tropical Parasitology
  • Vector-borne Diseases
  • Ticks and Tick-borne Diseases
  • The Health Policy Environment
  • Approaches to Control Parasitic Diseases

Parasitic infections affect millions of people every year:

  • More than 300,000 persons living are infected with Trypanosoma cruzi, the cause of Chagas disease.
  • At least 1,000 people are hospitalized with neurocysticercosis every year.
  • Each year at least 70 people, most of them children, are blinded by the parasite that causes Toxocariasis.
  • More than 60 million persons are chronically infected with Toxoplasma gondii.
  • Each year 1.1 million people are newly infected with Trichomonas.

WHO estimates that about 655,000 people die from malaria every year, though a recent systematic analysis suggested the true annual mortality is closer to 1.24 million (Murray et al., 2012). Inexpensive oral drugs—chloroquine and sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine—were once common treatment for malaria, but resistance to these treatments is widespread (WHO, 2012c). Since 2001, the WHO has recommended treating malaria with artemisinin combination therapies (WWARN, 2012c). The use of artemisinin combination drugs as first-line therapy is essential to malaria control. As of 2006, however, there is evidence of artemisinin resistance in Southeast Asia (WWARN, 2012c).

 

 

Market Value for Antimalarial Drugs

Two hundred and eighteen antimalarial drugs were in circulation in Kenya in 2002. These included 65 "sulfur"-pyrimethamine (sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine and sulfalene-pyrimethamine (SP), the first-line recommended drug in 2002) and 33 amodiaquine (AQ, the second-line recommended drug) preparations. Only half of SP and AQ products were registered with the Pharmacy and Poisons Board. Of SP and AQ brands at district level, 40% and 44% were officially within legal registration requirements. 29% of retailers at district level stocked SP and 95% stocked AQ. The retail price of adult doses of SP and AQ were on average 0.38 and 0.76 US dollars, 100% and 347% higher than trade prices from manufacturers and importers. Artemether-lumefantrine, the newly announced first-line recommended antimalarial drug in 2004, was found in less than 1% of all retail outlets at a median cost of 7.6 US dollars.
