Intestinal parasitism in the animals of the zoological garden "Peña Escrita" (Almuñecar, Spain).
Trypanosoma cruzi I genotypes in different geographical regions and transmission cycles based on a microsatellite motif of the intergenic spacer of spliced-leader genes.
Dietary fiber down-regulates colonic tumor necrosis factor alpha and nitric oxide production in trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid-induced colitic rats.
It is concluded that the increased production of SCFA may contribute to recovery of damaged colonic mucosa because they constitute substrates for the colonocyte and, additionally, that they can inhibit the production of proinflammatory mediators, such as TNFalpha and NO.
Glycogen Phosphorylase in Acanthamoeba spp.: Determining the Role of the Enzyme during the Encystment Process Using RNA Interference
The obtained results demonstrate that the enzyme is required for cyst wall assembly, mainly for the formation of the cell wall inner layer in Acanthamoeba.
Intestinal and haematic parasitism in the birds of the Almuñecar (Granada, Spain) ornithological garden.
Localized Mucosal Leishmaniasis due to Leishmania (Leishmania) infantum: Clinical and Microbiologic Findings in 31 Patients
The results of the present report stress the clinical importance of searching for the presence of Leishmaniasis in patients with suspected neoplasia of the upper respiratory tract if they have visited or resided in zones endemic for Leishmania (Leishmania) infantum.
Western blot applied to the diagnosis and post-treatment monitoring of human hydatidosis.

The results of the present study suggest that B. pumilus 15.1 could be considered a strong candidate for developing strategies for biological control of C. capitata.
Comparative sensitivity of six serological tests and diagnostic value of ELISA using purified antigen in hydatidosis
- Y. Sbihi, A. Rmiqui, M. Rodriguez-Cabezas, A. Orduña, A. Rodríguez-Torres, A. Osuna
- Medicine, BiologyJournal of clinical laboratory analysis (Print)
Initial laboratory studies showed purified antigens to be preferable to crude cyst fluid, regardless of the type of test used, and the sensitivity and specificity of ELISA by using the purified antigen‐B‐rich fraction was evaluated.
