The control of leishmaniases.
TLDR
Control of zoonotic cutaneous/mucocutaneous leishmaniasis of the New World is hardly feasible at present, and the only rational approach to prevent some of mucosal lesions is early diagnosis and radical treatment of patients with the rather unsatisfactory drugs at present available. Expand
NOTES ON BATS NEW TO THE FAUNA OF COLOMBIA

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Annals of tropical medicine and parasitology
  • 1 April 1982

Toxicological and clinical studies on Centruroides margaritatus (Gervais), a common scorpion in western Colombia.
TLDR
Clinical studies of over 1000 randomly selected people indicated that the scorpion venom is of low toxicity, as could be expected from the venom assays. Expand
Developmental stages of Trypanosoma cruzi-like flagellates in Cavernicola pilosa.
TLDR
The developmental stages of Trypanosoma cruzi ssp, found in the intestinal tract of Cavernicola pilosa, are described and measurements given for nine life stages; parasites were rare in the foregut and metatrypomastigotes were seen only in the mid- and hindguts; all adult bugs examined harboured intestinal infections of T. c.
