Aedes albopictus larvae collected in Gainesville, FL, were infected with the gregarine Ascogregarina taiwanensis. Natural prevalence varied from 68 to 100%. Eight mosquito species were tested in the laboratory for susceptibility to A. taiwanensis isolated from field-collected Ae. albopictus. Aedes aegypti, Aedes albopictus, and Aedes taeniorhynchus became(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of JAK2 V617F mutation and its clinical correlation in patients with chronic myeloproliferative disorders (CMD): polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET) and idiopathic myelofibrosis (IMF). MATERIALS AND METHODS Detection of JAK2 V617F mutation by allele specific-PCR. RESULTS One hundred and three(More)
The oral bioavailability and anthelmintic efficacy in mice of a new formulation of albendazole (ABZ) dissolved in a solution of hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin (HPCD) are compared with a conventional ABZ suspension of carboxymethylcellulose. Plasma concentrations of ABZ and albendazole sulphoxide (ABZ-SO), its active and main metabolite, were assayed by(More)
Fibromyalgia (FM) is characterized in part by an elevated inflammatory status, and "modified exercise" is currently proposed as being a good therapeutic help for these patients. However, the mechanisms involved in the exercise-induced benefits are still poorly understood. The objective was to evaluate the effect of a single bout of moderate cycling (45 min(More)
BACKGROUND Nosocomial infections (NI) are an important clinical complication in adult and children patients at the different hospital wards. NI cause considerable morbidity and mortality and are associated with prolonged hospital stay and increased health care costs. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to describe the incidence of NI in pediatric(More)
The life cycle of Amblyospora camposi n. sp. is described from the mosquito Culex renatoi and the copepod Paracyclops fimbriatus fimbriatus collected in the leaf axils of the plant Eryngium cabrerae in Argentina. Meiospores of A. camposi (5.8 x 4.1 microm) were infectious per os to female adults of the copepod P. f. fimbriatus. All developmental stages in(More)
Triatoma virus (TrV) is the only entomopathogenic virus found in triatomines. TrV replicates in cells of the midgut epithelium of triatomines, causing a high mortality rate and delayed development of the infected insect. In this work, we report an antigen-capture enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (AC-ELISA) and a reverse transcription-polymerase chain(More)
In a survey for parasites and pathogens of Aedes aegypti conducted in La Plata, Argentina, an aseptate gregarine was found parasitizing larvae, pupae and adults of this mosquito species. This gregarine species was identified as Ascogregarina culicis based on the morphology and size of gamonts, gametocysts and oocysts. It is the first record of gregarine(More)
Midgut epithelial cells were isolated from fifth-instarPseudaletia unipuncta larvae by collagenase treatment of midgut tissue, and cultured in TNM-FH medium. Long-term continuous culture and maintenance of midgut cells were achieved withP. unipuncta armyworm intestinal cells. Several cells lines were obtained from theseP. unipuncta primary cultures, and(More)
