The use of recombinant viral vectors expressing T. gondii antigens is a safe and efficient approach to induce immune response against the parasite and a valuable tool for vaccine development. We have previously protected mice from toxoplasmosis by immunizing the animals with an adenovirus expressing the protein SAG1 (AdSAG1) of T. gondii. We are now looking(More)
The Global Influenza Hospital Surveillance Network (GIHSN) has established a prospective, active surveillance, hospital-based epidemiological study to collect epidemiological and virological data for the Northern and Southern Hemispheres over several consecutive seasons. It focuses exclusively on severe cases of influenza requiring hospitalization. A(More)
The ability of Trypanosoma cruzi to activate macrophages is, at least in part, attributed to the glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored mucin-like glycoproteins (GPI-mucins) expressed in the surface of the trypomastigote stage of the parasite. The differential display reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction and the reverse Northern blot were used to(More)
