A Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP) Assay for Early Detection of Schistosoma mansoni in Stool Samples: A Diagnostic Approach in a Murine Model
Background Human schistosomiasis, mainly due to Schistosoma mansoni species, is one of the most prevalent parasitic diseases worldwide. To overcome the drawbacks of classical parasitological andExpand
Detection and identification of Rickettsia helvetica and Rickettsia sp. IRS3/IRS4 in Ixodes ricinus ticks found on humans in Spain
New Rickettsia spp. are continuously being isolated from ticks around the world, but in most cases their pathogenicity remains to be determined. Some rickettsiae first thought to be nonpathogenicExpand
Molecular Detection of Ehrlichia phagocytophila Genogroup Organisms in Larvae of Neotrombicula autumnalis (Acari: Trombiculidae) Captured in Spain
Twenty unfed larvae of Neotrombicula autumnalis (Acari: Trombiculidae) collected on vegetation in the north of Spain were examined by polymerase chain reaction for Borrelia burgdorferi (s.l.),Expand
Tick species and tick-borne infections identified in population from a rural area of Spain
To determine the tick species that bite humans in the province of Soria (Spain) and ascertain the tick-borne pathogens that threaten people's health in that province, 185 tick specimens wereExpand
Development of a Highly Sensitive Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP) Method for the Detection of Loa loa
The filarial parasite Loa loa, the causative agent of loiasis, is endemic in Central and Western Africa infecting 3–13 million people. L. loa has been associated with fatal encephalopathic reactionsExpand
Strong-LAMP: A LAMP Assay for Strongyloides spp. Detection in Stool and Urine Samples. Towards the Diagnosis of Human Strongyloidiasis Starting from a Rodent Model
Background Strongyloides stercoralis, the chief causative agent of human strongyloidiasis, is a nematode globally distributed but mainly endemic in tropical and subtropical regions. Chronic infectionExpand
Rickettsia massiliae in ticks removed from humans in Castilla y León, Spain
Rickettsia massiliae, a spotted fever group (SFG) rickettsia, was first isolated from Rhipicephalus sanguineus collected in Marseille in 1992 [1]. Since then, this rickettsia has been commonlyExpand
Application of real-time PCR for the detection of Strongyloides spp. in clinical samples in a reference center in Spain.
Strongyloidiasis is one of the major intestinal helminthic infections in humans with a worldwide distribution, affecting especially tropical and subtropical regions. This disease can occur withoutExpand
Spotted Fever Group Rickettsiae in Ticks Feeding on Humans in Northwestern Spain
Abstract:  During a 7‐year study, we identified and analyzed by PCR 4,049 ticks removed from 3,685 asymptomatic patients in Castilla y León (northwestern Spain). A total of 320 ticks (belonging to 10Expand
