An outbreak of trichinellosis caused by ingestion of pork infected with Trichinella britovi occurred in the province of Granada in southern Spain in April-May 2000. Thirty-eight people were affected and 15 of them were hospitalized at the University Hospital of San Cecilio (Granada). The probable source of infection was sausage made from uninspected wild(More)
Circulating antigen level, IgG antibody response to worm antigens and to excretory/secretory products (ES), and specificity to Fasciola hepatica antigens were determined in 6 Schistosoma bovis-infected sheep at weekly intervals for 15 wk. A noninfected control group was included. An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) sandwich and a double-antibody(More)
An outbreak of trichinellosis caused by wild boar meat occurred in the Iruela (Jaen) in southern Spain in February 1996. Thirty-five people were diagnosed on the basis of epidemiologic data, but only 24 patients agreed to participate in this study. Twenty-three (96%) had symptoms suggestive of trichinellosis. Immunofluorescent and Western blot test results(More)
Five outbreaks of trichinellosis, involving 86 people, took place in Andalucía (Southern Spain) between 1984 and 1987. Four of them were caused by eating infected pork and one by eating wild boar meat. The human sera were analysed by the immunofluorescence assay test, which showed circulating anti-Trichinella antibody titres of up to 1:10240. A micro-ELISA(More)
We analysed the outcome of 92 consecutive unrelated donor haematopoietic cell transplantations (UD-HCTs) performed in Spain to treat adult patients with CML in the first chronic phase (1CP). Patients' and donors' median age was 32 (15-49) and 36 (22-56) years, respectively. In all, 73 pairs (79%) matched for A, B+/-C and DRB1+/-DQB1 loci and 19 had > or =1(More)
Trichinella spiralis glutathione S-transferase (TsGST) was isolated from crude extracts of L1 larvae by glutathione-affinity chromatography. Two closely migrating polypeptides with molecular masses of 28.5 and 28 kDa were identified by electrophoresis. Three isoforms of pI 5.6, 5.8, and 6.0 were detected by isoelectric focusing. Purified TsGST showed a low(More)
A third outbreak of Trichinella britovi with 140 people involved, occurred in Granada Spain (December 1998). The source of infection was sausage made from uninspected wild boar meat. Fifty-two patients agreed to participated in this study. An elevated eosinophil level (> 5%) was detected in 59.6% of patients, and persisted in most of these cases for two(More)
Sheep infected with Fasciola hepatica for 10 wk acquired a substantial level of resistance to challenge with Schistosoma bovis. The worm burden was reduced by 87.2% (P < 0.01) compared with that of a control group. But when sheep primarily were infected with S. bovis and 6 wk later with F. hepatica, no significant reduction in the S. bovis burden was(More)
Antigens present in sera from Fasciola hepatica-infected goats were partially characterized by means of polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of immunoprecipitates obtained by counterimmunoelectrophoresis. Agar containing the 2 immunoprecipitin lines, agar containing no precipitin lines, a crude extract of F. hepatica, and normal rabbit IgG were assayed. The(More)
