The aim of this study was to determine the role of certain bovine lymphocyte antigens (BoLA) regions in the resistance or susceptibility to Boophilus microplus tick infestation in two different breeds of cattle. The breeds were maintained, one in natural conditions and the second one in an experimental setting at the research station in Martinez de la(More)
BACKGROUND Type 1 interferon (IFNα/β) has a significant role in establishing protection against virus infections. It has been well documented by in vitro studies that dengue virus (DENV) activates a robust IFNα/β response. However, DENV also induces a down-regulation of the JAK/STAT pathway, inhibiting the induction of interferon regulated genes. As a(More)
Higher levels of viremia and circulating nonstructural protein 1 (NS1) have been associated with dengue disease severity. In this study, viremia and circulating NS1 levels were determined in 225 serum samples collected from patients in Mexico infected with dengue virus serotypes 1 and 2 (DENV-1 and DENV-2). Patients with dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) who(More)
BACKGROUND The measurement and detection of viremia and antigenemia in sera have been used as a marker of risk for dengue disease severity and diagnosis. However, evidence exists suggesting that levels of viremia and antigenemia are affected by the presence of specific antibodies. OBJECTIVE To compare viral load and circulating NS1 levels in sera from(More)
OBJECTIVE To measure the incidence rate and trend of acute leukemia (AL) in political districts of Mexico City. MATERIAL AND METHODS Descriptive longitudinal study conducted at six hospitals that care for nearly 97.5% of all cancer cases among children in Mexico City. Study data were collected in 1995 and 1996, and were analyzed in 1999, at the National(More)
