During the bloom the epidemiological studies on Pelagia noctiluca stings were carried out mostly both in Italian and Croatian Adriatic localities [ 99 — ] owing to the high impact on bathers and fishermen in these zones, while data from other Mediterranean regions are sporadic [ 40, ].

The nematocysts of Pelagia noctiluca can be found on umbrella, oral arms and tentacles; thus all the jellyfish is venomous and discharge can be induced, aside from encounters with the living animal, even from handling stranded or dead organisms [ 73 ]. Anthozoa crude venom on cultured cells.

In several zones the toxicity of jellyfish is a very important health problem, thus it has stimulated the research on these organisms; to date toxicological research on Cnidarian venoms in the Mediterranean region is not well developed due to the weak poisonousness of venoms of jellyfish and anemones living in this area. Furthermore, in some receptive coastal zones, such as in the Spotorno Bay Western Ligurian Rivierathe proliferation of Pelagia noctiluca was evident and reached a peak during some periods September — January with no apparent regard to the season [ 43 ].

Climate-related increases in jellyfish frequency suggest a more gelatinous future for the North Sea. Mechanism of hemolysis induced by nematocyst venom: Possible connections between sewage effluent, nutrient levels and jellyfish blooms.

Properties of a toxin from the sea anemone Stoichactis helianthusincluding specific binding to sphingomyelin. In the Eastern Mediterranean the studies concerning the distribution of Pelagia noctiluca and of other jellyfish were carried out mainly during summer [ 19 ]; some scientists performed research on the occurrence of this jellyfish in Greek and Egyptian waters [ 20 ], along Turkey [ 2122 ] and Lebanese coasts [ 23 ], and lessepsian jellyfish species coming from the Red Sea were observed in Israeli waters [ 2425 ].


Preparations of intact nematocysts were tested on hairless mice and on human skin to evaluate their irritant effects: Mitochondrial alteration caused by cnidarian toxins: Feeding of Pelagia noctiluca in open sea. Medusae of the Egyptian Mediterranean waters.

The Scyphomedusae of the Mediterranean coast of Israel, including two Lessepsian migrants new to the Mediterranean. Support Center Support Center. Abstract The toxicity of Cnidaria is a subject of concern due to its influence on humans.

Pour les lecteurs Alerte courriel. The nematocysts of Pelagia noctiluca can be maintained isolated in distilled cndaires where they retain their discharging capacity [ 74 ].

Envenomations from jellyfish and related species. Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. J Exp Mar Biol Ecol.

Spatial aggregations of the swarming jellyfish Pelagia noctiluca Scyphozoa. Nevertheless, an active ACE was characterized in an even more distant organism, the leech, in which cnidairs enzyme is mainly expressed within the digestive tract.

The bloom of the jellyfish Pelagia noctiluca in the Mediterranean and Adriatic cnidairez its impact on human health. The causes and the dynamics of blooms in relation to the variations of environmental factors, to climate and to man-caused changes are to date greatly unknown; in this connection, the alterations induced on marine food chains [ 51 ] and the consequences of CO 2 rising on pH of oceans, which was seen to be correlated with jellyfish frequency [ 52 ], are stimulating research subjects.

At a cellular level it was suggested that Cnidarian venoms affect the plasmalemma by binding to membrane phospholipids and increasing permeability with consequent water uptake and damage of external and intracellular membranes [ ]; the phospholipase activity of Cnidarian venoms, which affects cell membrane permeability and ion exchange, was also suggested [ — ].


As already reported for other Cnidaria [ 72— ], in the case of Pelagia noctiluca the toxicity is not exclusively due to nematocysts, but is also ascribable to tissue components [ ]. Toxicity of jellyfish and cnidaides venoms on cultured V79 cells. Lack of knowledge A lot remains unknown, both about the ecology and toxicity of Pelagia noctiluca and several aspects remain to be clarified to explain its complex biological and ecological role in the marine environment.

The biological cycle of Pelagia noctiluca is annual [ 3 ]; for this reason it shows high natural mortality, typical of short life-cycle species [ 32 ].

Anyhow, the seriousness of envenomation is due to the eventual allergic characteristics of the patient or to previous envenomations [ 73 ]. The testicular isoform tACE is required for male fertility. Epidemiological studies related to the environmental quality criteria for bathing waters, shellfish-growing cnisaires and edible marine organisms.

It was reported that jellyfish ckurs identificated as Pelagia noctiluca caused recurrent and more severe cutaneous eruptions over ten days after envenomation [ 97 ]. Rates of metabolism of jellyfish as related to body weight, chemical composition and temperature.
