BACKGROUND The request for medical attention derived from Olympic Games is variable, with few previously published experiences and thus, the estimations made by the organizers are difficult. METHODS The health care program established during the 1992 Olympic Games held in Barcelona is described and the clinical cases attended are reported. RESULTS The(More)
In this report we show that there are 37 polypeptides of larval Taenia solium which react with antibodies from humans with neurocysticercosis. Six of these 37 polypeptides are recognized by antibodies present in the sera of both patients and control individuals. Thus, a minimum of 31 antigens are specific for cysticerci. We describe herein the antigens more(More)
Two antigens (190 and 230 kDa) of the larvae of Taenia solium were detected in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of 14 of 18 patients in which neurocysticercosis was suspected. Nine of these were confirmed by histopathology. Seven antigens were detected in cyst fluid of T. solium larvae removed from the brains of 6 infected patients. Two of these antigens had(More)
A simple and quantitative enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) has been developed for the detection of antigens of larval Taenia solium in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of patients with cerebral cysticercosis. Another ELISA was developed for detecting antibodies in CSF against larval antigens. The examination of sixteen patients with clinical diagnosis(More)
The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) obtained from patients suspected of having neurocysticerosis (79 samples), as well as from control patients (without neurological symptoms), was separated using a high performance liquid chromatography gel filtration column. During the chromatographic separation, the eluted fractions were collected separately according to(More)
The prevalence of anti-Toxoplasma gondii antibodies was studied in 47 nonhuman primates of the Cebus species in the Santa Fe Zoological Park in Medellín, Colombia. Specific IgG titers (greater than 1/64) were detected in 40.9% of C. albifrons studied (n = 22), 13.3% of C. capucinus (n = 15), and 0% of C. apella (n = 10). Specific IgM was not detected in any(More)
In February, 1996, the Information Architecture Task Force of the University of Connecticut Libraries completed its examination of the architecture that would support and enhance public and staff access to electronic information services. As part of its investigation, the Task Force examined the current status of information architecture planning and the(More)
