El-Dib, N. A., A. A. El-Badry, T. - H. Ta-Tang, and J. M. Rubio, "Molecular detection of Capillaria philippinensis: An emerging zoonosis in Egypt.", Experimental parasitology, vol. 154, pp. 127-33, 2015 Jul. Abstract

Human infection with Capillaria philippinensis is accidental; however, it may end fatally if not diagnosed and treated in the proper time. The first case was detected in the Philippines in 1963, but later reported in other countries around the world, including Egypt. In this report, molecular diagnosis using a specific nested PCR for detection of C. philippinensis in faeces is described based on the amplification of small ribosomal subunit. The test showed sensitivity and specificity, as it detected all the positive cases and gave no cross-reaction with human DNA and DNA of other tested parasites. This method can be very useful not only for improvement of diagnosis, but also to understand the different environmental routes of transmission by detection of C. philippinensis DNA-stages in the possible fish intermediate hosts and reservoir animal host, helping to improve strategies for surveillance and prevention of human disease.

Banisch, D. M., A. El-Badry, J. V. Klinnert, R. Ignatius, and N. El-Dib, "Simultaneous detection of Entamoeba histolytica/dispar, Giardia duodenalis and cryptosporidia by immunochromatographic assay in stool samples from patients living in the Greater Cairo Region, Egypt.", World journal of microbiology & biotechnology, vol. 31, issue 8, pp. 1251-8, 2015 Aug. Abstract

Gastrointestinal infection due to intestinal parasites is an enormous health problem in developing countries and its reliable diagnosis is demanding. Therefore, this study aimed at evaluating a commercially available immunochromatographic assay (ICA) for the detection of cryptosporidia, Giardia duodenalis, and Entamoeba histolytica/dispar for its usefulness in the Greater Cairo Region, Egypt. Stool samples of 104 patients who presented between October 2012 and March 2013 with gastrointestinal symptoms or for the exclusion of parasites at Kasr-Al-Ainy University Medical School were examined by light microscopy of wet mounts and the triple ICA. Microscopy revealed in 20 % of the patients [95 % confidence interval (CI), 13.5-29.0 %] parasites with Hymenolepis nana, E. histolytica/dispar and Blastocystis hominis being the most frequent ones, but was not able to detect G. duodenalis and cryptosporidia, whereas ICA was positive in 21 % (95 % CI, 14.3-30.0 %) and detected E. histolytica/dispar in 12.5 % (95 % CI, 7.3-20.4 %), cryptosporidia in 6.7 % (95 % CI, 3.1-13.5 %) and G. duodenalis in 15.4 % (95 % CI, 9.6-23.6 %) of the patients. Detection of one or more pathogens was associated with access to water retrieved from a well or pump (p = 0.01). Patients between 20 and 29 years of age (p = 0.08) and patients with symptoms of 5 days or longer (p = 0.07) tended to have a higher risk to be infected than patients of other age groups or with shorter-lasting symptoms. In conclusion, the ICA was easy to perform and timesaving. Importantly, it enabled the detection of cryptosporidia, which cannot be found microscopically in unstained smears, demonstrated a higher sensitivity for the detection of G. duodenalis than microscopy, and was more specific for distinguishing E. histolytica/dispar from apathogenic amoeba.

El Dib, N. A., N. M. Eldessouky, S. A. El Sherbini, H. M. Seleem, and H. A. F. Algebaly, "Disseminated coccidioidomycosis in a 5-year-old Sudanese boy.", Journal of tropical pediatrics, vol. 60, issue 3, pp. 260-3, 2014 Jun. Abstract

A 5-year-old Sudanese boy not known to be immunodeficient and with no history of travelling developed septic shock from a disseminating coccidial infection. The diagnosis was delayed, as the eosinophilic hepatic abscess was initially thought to be secondary to schistosomiasis, which is endemic in Egypt and Sudan. A further survey about the existence of coccidial infection around the climatic area of the river Nile is warranted.
