A questionnaire was applied and the samples were analyzed by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis with silver stained. Incidence(More)
BACKGROUND Chagas disease is a tropical parasitic disease affecting about 10 million people, mostly in the Americas, and transmitted mainly by triatomine bugs. Insect vector control with indoor residual insecticides and the promotion of housing improvement is the main control intervention. The success of such interventions relies on their acceptance and(More)
BACKGROUND Group A rotavirus (RV) is associated with acute infectious diarrhea (AID) in children and adults. The clinical manifestations of RV infection are classified as slight, moderate and severe and could be the results of differing rotaviral serotypes. Attempts have been made to correlate the severity of the infection with specific RV groups, subgroups(More)
similar proportion. G1 serotypes were detected in 50%, G2 in 50% and P1A serotypes in 100% of the samples. 50% of the viral RNA electrophoretical patterns, were short patterns and 50% were long patterns. The serotype G2, subgroup I, short patterns and one child who required hospitalization due to acute dehydratation. Discusion. Since the nursery is a closed(More)
BACKGROUND Non-domiciliated (intrusive) triatomine vectors remain a challenge for the sustainability of Chagas disease vector control as these triatomines are able to transiently (re-)infest houses. One of the best-characterized examples is Triatoma dimidiata from the Yucatan peninsula, Mexico, where adult insects seasonally infest houses between March and(More)
