Brief Summary:
The goal of the proposed study is to assess the prevalence of intestinal parasitic diseases in adults and children. These invasions are included to "dirty hand diseases" (per os invasions), therefore it applies mainly preschool children.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Intestinal Disease, Parasitic Chronic Disease Diagnostic Test: Tests for diagnosis of intestinal parasitic diseases

Detailed Description:

It is estimated that 75% of the world's population is infected with parasites and although parasitic diseases are mostly observed in the poor tropical and subtropical countries, there are also many diseases caused by parasites in Poland. In Poland, particular attention is paid to the following parasitic diseases closely related to the digestive system: giardiasis, taeniasis (including cysticercosis), ascariasis, cryptosporidiosis, toxoplasmosis, trichinosis, echinococcosis.

Symptoms of such invasions may include: allergic rhinitis of unknown origin, chronic fatigue or food intolerance. Moreover, many of them are asymptotic, therefore the study group will consist of both healthy people and individuals with undiagnosed diseases or/and chronic symptoms.


Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 100 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Diagnostics of Intestinal Parasitosis in Inhabitants of Kuyavian-Pomeranian Province in Poland
Actual Study Start Date : February 17, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 31, 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 31, 2019


Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Study participants
Both healthy and ailing individuals, both sex, including adults and children.
Diagnostic Test: Tests for diagnosis of intestinal parasitic diseases

Feces testing:

  1. fresh fecal samples will be used to preparing direct (saline and iodine wet) mounts using supplementary techniques (flotation, sedimentation), as well as temporary mounts (hematoxylin and trichrome staining). Other technique of fresh fecal samples examination will be ParaSys™
  2. A non-preserved stool samples will be stored below -20°C. Defrosted fecal specimen will be subjected to enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) - Giardia antigen test (coproantigens)




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Intestinal parasites [ Time Frame: 1 day (single evaluation of current samples) ]
    The fecal samples will be assessed qualitavely in terms of life forms of parasites present in human intestine, i.e.: eggs and larvas of flukes, tapeworms and nematodes, as well as protozoa trophozoites and cysts.

  2. Giardia antigen test [ Time Frame: 1 day (single evalutaion of all samples through study completion) ]
    Stool test for Giardia lamblia antigen (ELISA kit)


Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Feces
