Differentiate the microfilaria of Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi and Loa loa

Abstract. Thick blood films are dried for 9-12 hours and are then stained for 1 hour in Giemsa diluted 1 in 50 with phosphate buffer solution at pH 7.2.This technique reveals constant colour contrasts between the microfilariae of W. malayi and W. bancrofti which help considerably towards species identification. The main points of difference are described, and are illustrated by colour plates Most of the infections worldwide are caused by Wuchereria bancrofti. In Asia, the disease can also be caused by Brugia malayi and Brugia timori. The infection spreads from person to person by mosquito bites. The adult worm lives in the human lymph vessels, mates, and produces millions of microscopic worms, also known as microfilariae Studies on the Microfilariae of Loa loa, Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, Dirofilaria immitis, D, repens and D. aethiops - Volume 34 Issue 1- The microfilariae of Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, B timori, Loa loa, Mansonella perstans, and M ozzardi are found in the blood, while the microfilariae of Onchocerca volvulus and M streptocerca are found in the skin.

Lymphatic filariasis is caused by the filarial nematodes of the species Wuchereria bancrofti [], Brugia malayi [] and Brugia timori that are transmitted by the bite of a number of mosquito species such as Anopheles, Culex and Mansonia and Ochlerotatus ().When biting infective third stage larvae break out of the mosquito proboscis and enter the skin through the puncture wound The morphologic similarities of the microfilariae and their infrequency in clinical specimens in settings of endemicity present challenges to clinical laboratories in maintaining competence for accurate identification and differentiation. We present here a review of the primary filarial nematodes causing human infection, including an illustrated key, which we hope will improve the diagnostic. 1.

• Examination of blood samples will allow identification of microfilariae of Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, Brugia timori, Loa loa, Mansonella perstans, and M. ozzardi. • It is important to time the blood collection with the known periodicity of the microfilariae Brugia malayi. The distribution of B. malayi is very similar to that of W. bancrofti. However, cases are concentrated in Asia, including South China, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines, and South Korea. Other differences between B. malayi and W. bancrofti is the vector and reservoir Endosymbiotic Wolbachia bacteria from different filarial species, including major pathogens of humans such as Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi and Onchocerca volvulus, seem to play an important role in the development, viability and fertility of these worms. Wolbachia trigger inflammatory host re Identification of microfilariae by microscopic examination is the most practical diagnostic procedure. Examination of blood samples will allow identification of microfilariae of Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, Brugia timori, Loa loa, Mansonella perstans, and M. ozzardi

  3. Introduction. Brugia malayi is a roundworm nematode, one of the three causative agents of lymphatic filariasis in humans. Lymphatic filariasis, also known as elephantiasis, is a condition characterized by swelling of the lower limbs. The two other filarial causes of lymphatic filariasis are Wuchereria bancrofti and Brugia timori, which differ from Brugia malayi morphologically, symptomatically.

Because Loa loa is more distantly related to the previously sequenced Brugia malayi (the only parasitic nematode to be fully sequenced) than is W. bancrofti or O. volvulus, the Loa loa sequence will help inform more generally about the genomic structure and biological diversity of these organisms Wuchereria bancrofti is a filarial (arthropod-borne) nematode (roundworm) that is the major cause of lymphatic filariasis.It is one of the three parasitic worms, together with Brugia malayi and B. timori, that infect the lymphatic system to cause lymphatic filariasis.These filarial worms are spread by a variety of mosquito vector species.

Lymphatic filariasis (LF) is caused by infection with threadlike worms called nematodes of the family Filarioidea: 90% of infections are caused by Wuchereria bancrofti and the remainder by Brugia spp. . Humans are the exclusive host of infection with W. bancrofti.Although certain strains of B. malayi can also infect some animal species (felines and monkeys), the life cycle in these animals is. The female worms of W. bancrofti measure 80 to 100 mm in length and 0.24 to 0.30 mm in diameter, while the males measure about 40 mm by 0.1 mm. The adult worms of Brugia malayi resemble those of W. bancrofti but are smaller. Female worms measure 43 to 55 mm in length by 130 to 170 μm in width, and males measure 13 to 23 mm in length by 70 to. Organism Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi and B. timori, nematode worms. Microfilariae, the larval form present in the peripheral blood, are taken into the mosquito's stomach when it feeds on humans (or animal reservoir in B. malayi).The larva loses its sheath inside the mosquito, migrates through the stomach wall and burrows into the muscles of the thorax

The remaining four major tissue nematodes—Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, Onchocerca volvulus, and Loa loa—are members of a single superfamily (Filarioidea).All use humans as their natural definitive host. The thin, thread-like adults live for years in the subcutaneous tissues and lymphatic vessels, where they discharge their live-born offspring called microfilariae Lymphatic filariasis (LF) caused by three species, Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi and Brugia timori, is still a major public health problem in Indonesia.

Lymphatic Filariasis is caused by Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, and Brugia timori. Transmission is by mosquitoes . Infective larvae from the mosquito migrate to the lymphatics, where they develop into threadlike adult worms within 6 to 12 mo. Females are 80 to 100 mm long; males are about 40 mm long With the genomes of L. loa, Onchocerca volvulus, Wuchereria bancrofti, and Brugia malayi available, new drug targets have been identified. Methods. The effects of the tyrosine kinase inhibitors imatinib, nilotinib, and dasatinib on B. malayi adult males, adult females, L3 larvae, and microfilariae were assessed using a wide dose range (0-100.
