(LML) InfoNTD monthly mail with the latest publications on cross-cutting issues and NTDs - June 2018

 

Leprosy Mailing List – June 20,  2018

Ref.:  (LML)   InfoNTD monthly mail with the latest publications on cross-cutting issues and NTDs - June 2018

From:  Ilse Egers, Amsterdam, the Netherlands


Dear LML readers,

This newsletter provides you with a selection of news items and recent publications on cross-cutting issues in NTDs. Our starting point is to add articles covering a wide variety of issues. Unfortunately, this is not always possible due to a limited diversity in and shortage of articles on cross-cutting issues and NTDs.

Feel free to contact us with any questions or to receive the PDF if a link to the full text is not included.
Our document delivery service is free!

Morbidity management and disability prevention for lymphatic filariasis in Sri Lanka: Current status and future prospects.
Chandrasena N, Premaratna R, Gunaratna IE, et al. PLoS Negl Trop Dis. 2018; 12(5):e0006472.
Abstract Sri Lanka was acknowledged to have eliminated lymphatic filariasis (LF) as a public health problem in 2016, largely due to its success in Mass Drug Administration (MDA) to interrupt disease transmission. Analysis of the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) of the national Morbidity Management and Disability Prevention (MMDP) program was carried out with the objective of evaluating it and providing recommendations to optimize the use of available resources.

(S)WASH-D for Worms: A pilot study investigating the differential impact of school- versus community-based integrated control programs for soil-transmitted helminths.
Clarke NE, Clements ACA, Amaral S, et al. PLoS Negl Trop Dis. 2018; 12(5):e0006389.
Abstract Soil-transmitted helminths (STH) infect nearly 1.5 billion individuals globally, and contribute to poor physical and cognitive development in children. STH control programs typically consist of regular delivery of anthelminthic drugs, targeting school-aged children. Expanding STH control programs community-wide may improve STH control among school-aged children, and combining deworming with improvements to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) may further reduce transmission.

A holistic approach to the mycetoma management.
Bakhiet SM, Fahal AH, Musa AM, et al. PLoS Negl Trop Dis. 2018; 12(5):e0006391.
Abstract Mycetoma is a localised chronic granulomatous inflammatory disease characterised by painless subcutaneous mass and formation of multiple sinuses that produce purulent discharge and grains. If untreated early and appropriately, it usually spread to affect the deep structures and bone resulting in massive damage, deformities and disabilities. In this communication, the Mycetoma Research Center (MRC), Sudan shares its experience in implementing a new holistic approach to manage mycetoma patients locally at the village level.

Integrated morbidity mapping of lymphatic filariasis and podoconiosis cases in 20 co-endemic districts of Ethiopia.
Kebede B, Martindale S, Mengistu B, et al. PLoS Negl Trop Dis. 2018:28.
Abstract Lymphatic filariasis (LF) and podoconiosis are neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) that pose a significant physical, social and economic burden to endemic communities. Patients affected by the clinical conditions of LF (lymphoedema and hydrocoele) and podoconiosis (lymphoedema) need access to morbidity management and disability prevention (MMDP) services. Clear estimates of the number and location of these patients are essential to the efficient and equitable implementation of MMDP services for both diseases.

Elimination of lymphatic filariasis as a public health problem from the Cook Islands.
Ave C, Kapa RD, Ottesen E. Trop Med Health. 2018; 46(12).
Abstract The Cook Islands has a long history of high-endemicity lymphatic filariasis (LF) transmitted by vector mosquitoes. Though the infection prevalence had declined between 1975 and 1999 following episodic treatment activities, still infection was widespread with pockets of persistent infection. Beginning in 1999, the Cook Islands embarked on a national program, in partnership with Pacific Programme to Eliminate LF (PacELF), to eliminate LF as a public health problem.

Trachoma elimination: Approaches, experiences and performance of interventions in Amhara Regional State, Ethiopia.
Andualem B, Beyene B, Kassahun M, et al. J Eye Dis Disord. 2018; 4(1):1-6.
Abstract Trachoma is caused by conjunctival infection with a Bacteria, Chlamydia trachomatis. According to WHO grading system trachomatous trichiasis (TT), leads to irreversible blindness. Amhara national state of Ethiopia has the highest burden of TT. Despite huge efforts the region has big backlog and far from the target.

Adverse events following single dose treatment of lymphatic filariasis: Observations from a review of the literature.
Budge PJ, Herbert C, Andersen B, et al. PLoS Negl Trop Dis. 2018; 12(5):e0006454.
Abstract WHO's Global Programme to Eliminate Lymphatic Filariasis (LF) uses mass drug administration (MDA) of anthelmintic medications to interrupt LF transmission in endemic areas. Recently, a single dose combination of ivermectin (IVM), diethylcarbamazine (DEC), and albendazole (ALB) was shown to be markedly more effective than the standard two-drug regimens (DEC or IVM, plus ALB) for achieving long-term clearance of microfilaremia.

Active case-finding and enhanced data collection to identify neglected tropical diseases.
Nhlabatsi N, Lokotfwako V, Mabundza D, et al. Online J Public Health Inform. 2018; 10(1).
Abstract Leprosy is a chronic infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium leprae. It is a contagious disease that affects the skin, mucous membrane, and nerves causing discoloration and lumps on the skin and in severe cases disfigurement and deformities. Progress in the fight against leprosy has been one of the greatest public health success and in the country, was eliminated in the mid-1990s. However on the 22nd August 2017 a confirmed leprosy cases was reported by the National Referral Hospital.

Study of lymphoedema of non-filarial origin in the northwest region of Cameroon: spatial distribution, profiling of cases and socio-economic aspects of podoconiosis.
Wanji S, Kengne-Ouafo JA, Deribe K, et al. Int Health. 2018.
Abstract Although podoconiosis is endemic in Cameroon, little is known about its epidemiology and spatial distribution. This study provides an insight into the geographical distribution and epidemiology of podoconiosis in the North West region of Cameroon, yet management is limited. Evidence-informed targeted interventions are needed to manage people with lymphoedema.

Cutaneous leishmaniasis in Morocco: psychosocial burden and simplified diagnosis.
Bennis I. Institute of Tropical Medicine Antwerp. 2018:248.
Abstract Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is a neglected tropical disease (NTD) affecting more than one million persons worldwide. In Morocco, reporting over the past decade on average more than 4000 cases per year, CL is considered a public health problem. CL is mainly poverty-related in Morocco. Our research aimed to document the psychosocial burden of CL in these regions, and to assess a new diagnostic tool for CL that is appropriate for use in remote endemic areas.

Risk factors for buruli ulcer in a referral mission hospital in anambra state, Nigeria: A case control study.
Adogu POU, Igwe JC, Chineke HN, et al. Edorium J Public Health. 2018; 5:1-9.
Abstract Buruli ulcer can cause permanent disability and deformity which may severely limit a person's ability to carry out normal daily activities. The associated stigma may greatly restrict the social participation by affected persons. Though early detection and adequate medical and surgical treatment can minimize future disability and complication, recognizing the risk factors of this disease can lead to adoption of appropriate preventive strategies.
