Clean meat grinders thoroughly. If the infection is heavy, patients may have difficulty coordinating their movements and experience heart and breathing problems. They can be eaten immediately after cooking. Note on Treatment During Lactation It is not known whether mebendazole is excreted in breast milk. A correlation between levels of eosinophils and serum muscle enzymes, such as lactate dehydrogenase LDH and creatine phosphokinase CPK , has been observed in patients with Trichinellosis, suggesting that muscle damage may be mediated indirectly by these activated granulocytes [ 14 ]. Treatment should begin as soon as possible. Trichinosis is more common in rural areas. In severe cases, death can occur. The significance of this approach is that, if the white blood cells in the small intestine have been exposed to Trichinella antigens through vaccination , when an individual does get infected, the immune system will respond to expel the worms from the small intestine fast enough to prevent the female worms from releasing their larvae.

Simultaneously, it is necessary to continue investigating therapeutic strategies that, through pharmacotherapy and immunotherapy, develop specific treatments directed to the parasite, avoiding collateral effects to the host.
Therefore, controlling trichinellosis is of great significance to the meat industry and human health.
Respect to pharmacotherapy with steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, glucocorticoids GC are the most used for the treatment of signs and symptoms of the inflammatory response produced by the T.
