Flagellates of Trypanosoma cruzi (stock Molino 1), obtained from the intestine of experimentally infected Rhodnius prolixus, grown in cellular or acellular culture, as well as from the blood of infected mice, were examined by a direct fluorescence test using the lectins RCA (Ricinus communis-120) and SBA (soy bean agglutinin; Glycine maxima), conjugated(More)
Two laboratory maintenance systems of Trypanosoma rangeli were compared. The maintenance by weekly subinoculations in Tobie's culture medium and the intrafemoral inoculation of Rhodnius prolixus with cultured flagellates, resulted in loss of infectivity of the metacyclic salivarian trypomastigotes for mice, ten months after maintenance in culture. With the(More)
A new, monomorphic trypanosome, Trypanosoma magdalenae sp. n. was found in five of 38 fish, Petenia kraussii, from the Río Magdalena in Colombia, South America. It is the first trypanosome species designated from freshwater teleosts in Colombia. The trypomastigotes measured in 42.4 micron +/- 2.05 SD (range, 39.8 - 45.6) by 2.1 micron +/- 0.20 (2.0 - 2.5).(More)
Two groups of patients were examined for anti-Trypanosoma cruzi antibodies by immunofluorescence and ELISA (i) inhabitants of the village and surrounding rural area of Tibu, Norte de Santander, Columbia (n = 327) and (ii) employees of the Empresa Colombiana de Petroleos (ECOPETROL, n = 849). The latter group had a lower rate of positive serology (12 as(More)
Antigenic differentiation between three stages of the life cycle of Toxoplasma gondii by fluorescent antibodies. Antisera were prepared in three groups of twenty mice each with three different antigens of Toxoplasma gondii: the first group was inoculated with tachyzoites of RH strain and received sulfadiazine treatment; the second with tissue cysts of(More)
