Dipetalogaster maximus embryo extracts were used to stimulate peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and in ELISA with sera either from Trypanosoma cruzi infected or non-infected individuals. The results showed that there was significant proliferative response and high antibody, titers in sera of chagasic patients.
Xenodiagnosis sensibility and its relation to Chagas' disease chronic phase parasitemia was verified in 104 patients. The nymphs of the triatomine species, simultaneously utilized in the xenodiagnosis of these patients, divided into two groups, were examined in different ways. The positivity rates achieved in the two groups (40.0% and 42.4%) and the(More)
Fifty nine chronic chagasic patients were simultaneously submitted to xenodiagnosis and hemoculture for Trypanosoma cruzi samples isolations. The xenodiagnosis was done with 40 Panstrongylus megistus, Triatoma infestans and Dipetalogaster maximus nymphs, performing 120 triatomines. Groups of 10 insects per specie were dissecated and the intestinal content(More)
