Physical and genetic maps have been used for chromosomal localization of genes in vectors of infectious diseases. The availability of polytene chromosomes in malaria mosquitoes provides a unique opportunity to precisely map genes of interest. We report the physical mapping of two actin genes on polytene chromosomes of the major malaria vector in the Amazon,(More)
Three children with acute schistosomiasis mansoni developed pyogenic liver abscesses. The abscesses were diagnosed by ultrasonography and confirmed during laparotomy. Staphylococcus aureus were the sole bacteria isolated from the abscesses. An experimental study was carried out in mice to establish whether schistosomiasis is a predisposing cause for(More)
Schistosomiasis mansoni infection that occurs concurrently with Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia favors the formation of pyogenic liver abscess. The present experimental study in mice evaluated the following aspects of the relationship between infection with Schistosoma mansoni and liver abscess caused by S. aureus: a) the role of the eggs of S. mansoni in(More)
OBJECTIVE To verify whether the ileal exclusion interferes with liver and kidney functional changes secondary to extrahepatic cholestasis. METHODS We studied 24 rats, divided into three groups with eight individuals each: Group 1 (control), Group 2 (ligation of the hepatic duct combined with internal biliary drainage), and Group 3 (bile duct ligation(More)
