In this paper we investigate Isotropic Multiresolution Analysis(IMRA), isotropic refinable functions, and wavelets. The main results are the characterization of IMRAs in terms of the Lax-Wiener Theorem, and the characterization of isotropic refinable functions in terms of the support of their Fourier transform. As an immediate consequence of these results,(More)
Allopatric and sympatric infections of Lymnaea neotropica and Lymnaea viatrix var. ventricosa with Argentinean and French isolates of Fasciola hepatica were carried out to determine the capacity of these snails to produce metacercariae and to verify if this capacity changed with snail generation. The same process was also made with a French population of(More)
Clinical coccidiosis is associated with high fecal contamination and stress situations, mainly in animals under 1 year of age. Artificially fed dairy calves are one of the categories most prone to suffer from this parasitic disease. The study was carried out in a commercial dairy farm. Feces samples of heifer calves between 2 and 8 weeks old were taken(More)
Allopatric infections of French Galba truncatula with an Argentinean isolate of Fasciola hepatica were carried out to determine the infectivity of foreign miracidia in three snail populations differing by their susceptibility to French miracidia (two highly and one poorly susceptible populations). Sympatric infections of G. truncatula with French miracidia(More)
Climate strongly affects agriculture and livestock production and influences animal diseases, vectors and pathogens, and their habitat. Global warming trends predicted in the 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climatic Change (IPCC) report for South America are likely to change the temporal and geographical distribution of infectious diseases, including those(More)
BACKGROUND Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) is characterized by a deficient expression of glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored proteins (GPI-APs), due to somatic mutations of the phosphatidylinositolglycan complementation Class A (PIG-A) gene. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS In this study, the expression of a high number of GPI-APs on different subsets(More)
Despite records of ruminal paramphistomes in Argentina dating back to the beginning of the XX century, in the last decade cases have increased in number with evidence of spreading to new geographical areas. This fact led us to carry out some studies in the last few years in order to enhance the poor availability of reports in South America, some of which(More)
We analyze localized textural consistencies in high-resolution X-ray CT scans of coronary arteries to identify the appearance of diagnostically relevant changes in tissue. For the efficient and accurate processing of CT volume data, we use fast wavelet algorithms associated with three-dimensional isotropic multiresolution wavelets that implement a(More)
Experimental infections of two South American lymnaeids (Lymnaea neotropica and L. viatrix var. ventricosa) with Paramphistomum daubneyi were carried out to determine if these snail species could sustain larval development of this digenean and, if so, to specify their potential for cercarial production. A French population of Galba truncatula infected and(More)
