Javier; Bonato, Pierina S.; Lanchote, Vera L.; Takayanagui, Osvaldo M.; Horton, John; Gonzalez, Armando E.; Gilman, Robert H.; Garcia, Hector H. (Oxford University Press, 2019)
    Background: Albendazole is the drug of choice for the treatment of parenchymal neurocysticercosis, although its efficacy is suboptimal. Plasma levels of albendazole sulfoxide (ASOX), the active metabolite of albendazole, ...
  • Arroyo, Gianfranco; Bustos, Javier A.; Lescano, Andres G.; Gonzales, Isidro; Saavedra, Herbert; Rodriguez, Silvia; Pretell, E. Javier; Bonato, Pierina S.; Lanchote, Vera L.; Takayanagui, Osvaldo M.; Horton, John; Gonzalez, Armando E.; Gilman, Robert H.; Garcia, Hector H. (Oxford University Press, 2019)
    BACKGROUND: The efficacy of albendazole therapy in patients with parenchymal neurocysticercosis (NCC) is suboptimal. Plasma levels of albendazole sulfoxide (ASOX), the active metabolite of albendazole, are highly variable ...

Javier; Gonzalez, Armando E.; Gilman, Robert H.; Tsang, Victor C. W.; Garcia, Hector H.; Cysticercosis Working Group in Peru (Oxford University Press, 2018)
    Background: The enzyme-linked immunoelectrotransfer blot (EITB) assay is the reference serological test for neurocysticercosis (NCC). A positive result on EITB does not always correlate with the presence of active infections ...
  • Duque, Kevin R.; Escalaya, Alejandro L.; Zapata, Willy; Burneo, Jorge G.; Bustos, Javier A.; Gonzales, Isidro; Saavedra, Herbert; Pretell, E. Javier; Garcia, Hector H.; Cysticercosis Working Group in Peru (Elsevier, 2018)
    OBJECTIVE: Discordances between imaging findings of parenchymal neurocysticercosis and seizure expression have been reported, and as such the possibility that neurocysticercosis and seizures may frequently coexist by chance ...
  • Garcia, Hector H.; Gonzales, Isidro; Bustos, Javier A.; Saavedra, Herbert; Gavidia, Martin; Rodriguez, Lourdes; Najar, Enrique; Umeres, Hugo; Pretell, E. Javier (Elsevier, 2015)

    BACKGROUND: The efficacy of current antiparasitic treatment for cerebral Taenia solium cysticercosis with either albendazole (ABZ) or praziquantel (PZQ) is suboptimal. A recent study demonstrated that combining these 2 ...
  • Toribio, Luz; Romano, Miryam; Scott, Alan L.; Gonzales, Isidro; Saavedra, Herbert; Garcia, Hector H.; Shiff, Clive; Cysticercosis Working Group in Peru (American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, 2019)
    Neurocysticercosis (NCC), caused by Taenia solium larvae that reside in the central nervous system, results in serious public health and medical issues in many regions of the world. Current diagnosis of NCC is complex ...
  • Herrick, Jesica A.; Maharathi, Biswajit; Kim, Jin Suh; Abundis, Gerardo G.; Garg, Anjali; Gonzales, Isidro; Saavedra, Herbert; Bustos, Javier A.; Garcia, Hector H.; Loeb, Jeffrey A.; Cysticercosis Working Group in Peru (Wiley, 2018)
    Objective: We conducted a retrospective, case-control study of neurocysticercosis patients to ascertain early markers that identify subjects likely to develop treatment-resistant seizures. Methods: Clinical histories and ...
  • Garcia, Hector H.; Castillo, Yesenia; Gonzales, Isidro; Bustos, Javier A.; Saavedra, Herbert; Jacob, Louis; Del Brutto, Oscar H.; Wilkins, Patricia P.; Gonzalez, Armando E.; Gilman, Robert H.; Cysticercosis Working Group in Peru (Wiley, 2018)
    OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the diagnostic performance of two commercially available ELISA kits, Novalisa® and Ridascreen® , for the detection of antibodies to Taenia solium, compared to serological diagnosis of neurocysticercosis ...
  • Meneses Quiroz, Luis Jean Pierre; Gonzales, Isidro; Pretell, Edwin Javier; Saavedra, Herbert; Garcia, Hector H. (American Academy of Neurology, 2015)
    Neurocysticercosis is the infection of the CNS by cysts (larvae) of Taenia solium, a worldwide tropical disease. Cysticercosis lesions frequently locate in the gray-white matter border of the cerebral hemispheres but also ...
