About this section


Disease Ontology:10 A parasitic helminthiasis infectious disease that involves parasitic infection located in intestine in humans, has material basis in trichuris trichiura, which is transmitted by ingestion of food contaminated with egg-carrying soil. the infection has symptom abdominal pain, has symptom diarrhea, has symptom rectal prolapse and has symptom growth retardation.

MalaCards based summary: Trichuriasis, also known as trichuris trichiura infection, is related to ascariasis and atopy, and has symptoms including abdominal pain, diarrhea and rectal prolapse. An important gene associated with Trichuriasis is LILRA3 (leukocyte immunoglobulin-like receptor, subfamily A (without TM domain), member 3). The drugs albendazole and ivermectin and the compounds chloramphenicol and heme have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include intestine in humans, colon and t cells.

CDC:4 An estimated 604-795 million people in the world are infected with whipworm. Whipworm, hookworm, and Ascaris are known as soil-transmitted helminths (parasitic worms). Together, they account for a major burden of disease worldwide.
