Angiostrongylus Cantonensis Review Articles

Angiostrongylus cantonensis may be a parasitic nematode (roundworm) that causes angiostrongyliasis, the foremost common explanation for eosinophilic meningitis in Southeast Asia and therefore the Pacific Basin. The nematode commonly resides within the pulmonary arteries of rats, giving it the common name rat lungworm. Snails are the first intermediate hosts, where larvae develop until they're infectious. Humans are incidental hosts of this roundworm, and should become infected through ingestion of larvae in raw or undercooked snails or other vectors, or from contaminated water and vegetables. The larvae are then transported via the blood to the central systema nervosum, where they're the foremost common explanation for eosinophilic meningitis, a significant condition which will cause death or permanent brain and nerve damage. Angiostrongyliasis is an infection of accelerating public health importance, as globalization contributes to the geographic spread of the disease. A review is a piece of writing that summarizes the present state of understanding on a subject . A review surveys and summarizes previously published studies, instead of reporting new facts or analysis. Review articles are sometimes also called survey articles or, in news publishing, overview articles. Academic publications that concentrate on review articles are referred to as review journals.
