This molecular assay is a reliable procedure with a wide spectrum for detecting the natural diversity of SLEV and may be useful for ecological studies, clinical and laboratory settings and virological surveillance.
Enzootic activity of pixuna and Rio Negro viruses (Venezuelan equine encephalitis complex) in a neotropical region of Argentina.
This is the first report of the circulation of Pixuna virus in Argentina, and it confirms enzootic and endemic activity of RNV(AG80-663) in neotropical regions of this country.
Phylodynamics of Hepatitis C Virus Subtype 2c in the Province of Córdoba, Argentina
The phylogenetic and phylogeographic analysis suggests that the spread of HCV-2c occurred in Europe and South America almost simultaneously, possibly as a result of the advances in medicine technology of the first half of the 20th century.

Detection of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in body fluids from HCV monoinfected and HCV/HIV coinfected patients.
The data suggest that HCV can be detected in body fluids of chronically HCV-infected patients independent of these cofactors, including circulating HCV load and HCV/HIV coinfection.
