Crohn's disease (CD) is a multifactorial pathology associated with the presence of adherent-invasive Escherichia coli (AIEC) and NLRP3 polymorphic variants. The presence of intracellular E. coli in other intestinal pathologies (OIP) and the role of NLRP3-inflammasome in the immune response activated by these bacteria have not been investigated.

Oral spirochetes possess many potential virulence factors, including the capacity for tissue invasion and persistence despite a vigorous host immune response. In an attempt to identify treponemal immunoreactive components, sera derived from individuals with advanced periodontal disease were used as a reagent to isolate recombinant bacteriophage lambda(More)
Thirty-one Trypanosoma cruzi isolates from Chile, Peru, and Bolivia were studied in their capacity to differentiate in vitro from epimastigotes to metacyclic trypomastigotes on TAU-3AAG medium. Zymodeme 1 parasites displayed the best level of differentiation, which ranges from 60 to 90% depending on the isolate. Zymodeme 2 parasites exhibited highly(More)
Two new compounds 2β-acetoxy-15-phenyl-(22,25-acetoxy)-ent-labda-8(17), 13(E)-diene (9) and 2β-hydroxy-15-phenyl-(22,24,26-trimethoxy)-ent-labda-8(17),13(E)-diene (10) have been prepared by an Electrophilic Aromatic Substitution (EAS) reaction between diterpenyl allylic alcohols and 1,4-hydroquinone or 1,3,5-trimethoxybenzene using BF(3).Et(2)O as a(More)
