Effect of Different Hydatid Cyst Molecules on Hela and Vero Cell Lines Growth In vitro
Mast Cells as Reservoirs for HIV Latency
Hydatid cyst is the larval stage of the tapeworm, Echinococcus granulosus, a parasite responsible for hydatid disease or hydatidosis in human and livestock. This disease considered as one of the most important cosmopolitan zoonotic infection with different mammalian hosts being involved in the life cycle. It has been shown that in a large retrospective study of patients with cancer, the prevalence of hydatid cyst was significantly lower than in normal subjects. Antitumor activity of some other parasites have also been demonstrated.
