Hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 1b is the most prevalent in Argentina. As observed in most HCV-genotype 1b described previously worldwide, the population analyzed in this work is growing at exponential rate. Ten out of 22 samples tested comprise a well-defined cluster. This new cluster appears to be highly susceptible to therapy with non-pegylated(More)
In order to investigate hepatitis C virus (HCV) persistence and replication in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from a group of haemophilic individuals, HCV production and release to PBMC culture supernatants (SNs) from HCV singly infected patients and HIV/HCV co-infected patients was studied. HCV RNA+ SNs were found more frequently from HIV/HCV(More)
In an approach to discover new inhibitors of trypanothione reductase from Trypanosoma cruzi, the causative agent of Chagas' disease, a virtual high-throughput screening was performed. Two structurally new types of inhibitors emerged, the antimicrobial chlorhexidine {1,1'-hexamethylenebis[5-(4-chlorophenyl)biguanide]}, a linear competitive inhibitor (K(i) =(More)
Individuals with haemophilia who received non heat-treated factor concentrates were likely to undergo multiple exposures to the hepatitis C virus (HCV). Therefore, HCV mixed-genotype infections might be more frequent in these patients than in the general population. Their prevalence is extremely variable in similar groups of patients tested by different(More)
ALAT-2014 COPD Clinical Practice Guidelines used clinical questions in PICO format to compile evidence related to risk factors, COPD screening, disease prognosis, treatment and exacerbations. Evidence reveals the existence of risk factors for COPD other than tobacco, as well as gender differences in disease presentation. It shows the benefit of screening in(More)
The in vitro antiviral activity demonstrated by aqueous extract (AE) of Achyrocline flaccida on herpes simplex virus type-1 is exerted early during the viral replication, essentially during the viral adsorption to host cells. A bioguided purification process of the AE indicated that negatively charged polysaccharides were responsible for this antiviral(More)
Abstract In the frame of the Petróleos Mexicanos Institutional Program for Sustainable Development, processes were evaluated in the manufacture operation of the petrochemical industry, with the purpose of reducing their ecological fingerprint. Thirteen cleaner production opportunities were registered in six process plants: ethylene oxide and glycols,(More)
