A waterborne outbreak of cryptosporidiosis in normal hosts.
TLDR
In July 1984, an outbreak of gastroenteritis occurred in a suburban community in Texas and Cryptosporidium was identified as the etiologic agent.
Process optimisation and physicochemical characterisation of potato powder
Summary Samples of two potato cultivars (Agria and Merit), cultivated either conventionally or organically, were analysed to evaluate their suitability to transformation into powder. Agria cultivar
Effect of folinic acid on the capacity of trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole to prevent and treat Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia in rats
TLDR
Observations constitute the first experimental support for the use of folinic acid to prevent or control cytopenias that occur in patients with Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia who are under trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole treatment.
The cryopreservation and in vitro cultivation of larval Onchocerca volvulus.
TLDR
That cryopreservation does not appear to affect these parasites adversely is indicated by the fact that microfilariae derived from frozen tissues do not differ from those obtained from fresh tissues on the basis of numbers and vigor of emergent microFilariae.
Intradermal reactivity of excretory and secretory products of onchocercal microfilariae.
TLDR
The intradermal reactivity of excretory and secretory (ES) products derived from the in vitro cultivation of onchocercal microfilariae was evaluated and ES products from O. gutturosa evoked reactions in Guatemalan subjects, but were not as sensitive as thosefrom O. volvulus.
Litomosoides carinii in jirds (Meriones unguiculatus): ability to retard development of challenge larvae can be transferred with cells and serum.
TLDR
Comparisons indicate that the ability of infected jirds to retard development of challenge infection larvae can be transferred with cells and serum together but not separately.
Homologous and distinctive antigens of Onchocerca volvulus and Dirofilaria immitis: detection by an enzyme-linked immuno-inhibition assay.
TLDR
Serologic methods are utilized to probe the degree of identity of the antigenic constituents of O. volvulus and Dirofilaria immitis, the dog heartworm, and represent evidence for extensive homology in the antigens of this filarial nematode.
The effect of diethylcarbamazine on microfilariae ofLitomosoides carinii in vitro and in vivo
TLDR
The aforementioned phenomena is interpreted as representing the first step in the trapping and elimination of MFF after DEC treatment ofL.
