Antennal Phenotype of Triatoma dimidiata Populations and Its Relationship with Species of phyllosoma and protracta Complexes
Abstract Triatoma dimidiata (Latreille 1811) Reduviidae Triatominae is the main vector of Chagas disease in several countries of Latin America. As for other vector species, the characterization of T.Expand

Unusual prevalence of the Giardia intestinalis A-II subtype amongst isolates from humans and domestic animals in Mexico.
Defined by Filice in 1952 as Giardia duodenalis (syn. Giardia lamblia) on the basis of morphological characteristics, the species includes organisms that are ubiquitous in a variety of mammalianExpand

Genome size determination in chagas disease transmitting bugs (hemiptera-triatominae) by flow cytometry.
Because information about genome size in triatomines is scarce and contradictory, we performed DNA quantification by flow cytometry in 13 species belonging to five genera (Dipetalogaster, Eratyrus,Expand

Chagas Disease as a Cause of Symptomatic Chronic Myocardopathy in Mexican Children
We report the first case series of children in Mexico living with symptomatic Chagas disease causing chronic myocardopathy. The findings suggest that children with Chagas disease may developExpand

Phylogeographic Pattern and Extensive Mitochondrial DNA Divergence Disclose a Species Complex within the Chagas Disease Vector Triatoma dimidiata
Background Triatoma dimidiata is among the main vectors of Chagas disease in Latin America. However, and despite important advances, there is no consensus about the taxonomic status of phenotypicallyExpand

Metric Variation Among Geographic Populations of the Chagas Vector Triatoma dimidiata (Hemiptera: Reduviidae: Triatominae) and Related Species
Abstract Eight Triatoma dimidiata populations from different geographic regions were compared along with related species using traditional morphometry of head characters. A method for removingExpand

Zombie bugs? Manipulation of kissing bug behavior by the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi.
The parasite manipulation hypothesis states that the parasite modifies host's behavior thereby increasing the probability that the parasite will pass from an intermediate host to its final host. WeExpand

Biological Aspects of Crosses between Triatoma recurva (Stål), 1868 (Hemiptera: Reduviidae: Triatominae) and Other Members of the Phyllosoma Complex
ABSTRACT: The degree of reproductive isolation between Triatoma recurva (Stål) (Hemiptera: Reduviidae: Triatominae) and the six species of the genus Meccus plus T. mexicana (Herrich-Schaeffer)Expand

Seroprevalence of Triatoma virus (Dicistroviridae: Cripaviridae) antibodies in Chagas disease patients
BackgroundChagas disease is caused by Trypanosoma cruzi, and humans acquire the parasite by exposure to contaminated feces from hematophagous insect vectors known as triatomines. Triatoma virus (TrV)Expand

[Enfermedad de Chagas en México].
Chagas disease, which is caused by Trypanosoma cruzi, is considered to be the most serious parasitic disease in America. It is transmitted mainly by triatominae ("kissing bugs"). Mazzoti reported theExpand
