Physiology and immunity of the invasive giant African snail, Achatina (Lissachatina) fulica, intermediate host of Angiostrongylus cantonensis.

Mariana G Lima, Ronaldo de C Augusto, Jairo Pinheiro, Silvana C Thiengo,

As one of the most successful invasive land snail species, Achatina (Lissachatina) fulica Bowdich, 1822 has achieved wide global distribution, particularly in (sub)tropical regions, with further dispersal likely due to climate change. This species of giant African snails (up to 17 cm shell length) is a pest that has extensive negative ... Read more >>

Compatibility Polymorphism Based on Long-Term Host-Parasite Relationships: Cross Talking Between Biomphalaria glabrata and the Trematode Schistosoma mansoni From Endemic Areas in Brazil.

Mariana G Lima, Lângia C Montresor, Joana Pontes, Ronaldo de C Augusto, Jairo Pinheiro da Silva, Silvana C Thiengo,

Sympatric snail populations have been kept in the laboratory since the isolation of the parasite from the field. To evaluate the influence of the intermediate host in the infectivity of S. mansoni, this allopatric strain was compared to two sympatric strains, from different geographical origins, and with different time of ...

Effects of experimental Angiostrongylus cantonensis infection on the reproductive biology of Biomphalaria straminea and Biomphalaria tenagophila.

Mariana G Lima, Vinícius M Tunholi-Alves, Tatiane Cristina S Bonfim, Fabrício N Gaudêncio, Juberlan S Garcia, Arnaldo Maldonado, Jairo Pinheiro, Silvana C Thiengo,

Eosinophilic meningoencephalitis is an endemic zoonosis in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands, but in recent years, new cases have been reported in various countries outside these regions, including Brazil, where it is considered an emerging disease. In this study, the effect of infection by the nematode Angiostrongylus cantonensis, one ... Read more >>

The influence of Angiostrongylus cantonensis (Nematoda, Metastrongylidae) infection on the aerobic metabolism of Biomphalaria straminea and Biomphalaria tenagophila (Mollusca, Gastropoda).

Mariana G Lima, Vinícius M Tunholi-Alves, Fabrício N Gaudêncio, Florence G Martins, Rosane N Castro, Silvana C Thiengo, Juberlan S Garcia, Arnaldo Maldonado, Jairo Pinheiro,

Angiostrongylus cantonensis is considered the main agent responsible for human eosinophilic meningoencephalitis. This parasite has low specificity for mollusk hosts and it can also use aquatic snails as auxiliary hosts. Studies based on the metabolic profile of Biomphalaria spp. infected by A. cantonensis have been conducted to observe parasite-host interactions. ... Read more >>

Effects of latex from "Amapazeiro"Parahancornia amapa (Apocynaceae) on blowfly Chrysomya megacephala (Diptera: Calliphoridae) post-embryonic development.

Paloma M Mendonça, Mariana G Lima, Luis R M Albuquerque, Mario G Carvalho, Margareth M C Queiroz,

Nowadays, insect control is usually carried out using chemical insecticides, but insect resistance and other negative side effects have prompted the search for alternatives. Biopesticides provide a positive alternative to synthetic pesticides because they have low impact on the environmental, low toxicity to humans and low costs among other advantages. ... Read more >>
