Estudios biodirigidos leishmanicidas y tripanocidas de plantas amazónicas: cultura Tacana

  title={Estudios biodirigidos leishmanicidas y tripanocidas de plantas amaz{\'o}nicas: cultura Tacana},
  author={Camila Isabel Palma Tovar and Alberto tutor Gimenez Turba},
Chagas disease and the leishmaniasis are forgoten tropical diseases that are endemic in our country. One of the challenges is to find new effective and less toxic therapies; within that frame our Faculty has been evaluating the tacana traditional medicine as a source of potential antiparasitic agents. Aim: To contribute to the validation of the amazonic traditional medicine generating scientific knowledge through bioguided chemical studies of vegetal species used by the tacana culture, useful…

Leishmaniasis in Bolivia: Comprehensive Review and Current Status
In the 54th Congress of the Brazilian Society of Tropical Medicine, held in Recife, Brazil, in September 2018, we received several questions regarding the alleged “endemic of visceral leishmaniasis
Hyptis brevipes (Lamiaceae) Extracts Strongly Inhibit the Growth and Development of Spodoptera littoralis (Boisd.) Larvae (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
Two active compounds were isolated from the extract following bioassay-guided fractionation and were identified as 5-hydroxy-7,4'-dimethoxy-flavon-3-ol and 5- hydroxy-7-meth Oxy-2-(4`-mETHoxy-phenyl)-chromen-4-one based on spectroscopic data, the first report of these secondary metabolites in H. brevipes.
Setting of a colorimetric method to determine the viability of Trypanosoma cruzi epimastigotes
The present MTT assay results in faster determination of the activity of compounds, is more objective, and enables testing of several drugs simultaneously.
Medicinal plants uses of the Tacana, an Amazonian Bolivian ethnic group.
Three new compounds from the plant Lippia alva as inhibitors of chemokine receptor 5 (CCR5).
An improved SYBR Green-1-based fluorescence method for the routine monitoring of Plasmodium falciparum resistance to anti-malarial drugs
BackgroundThe recently introduced SYBR Green1 (SG) assay for testing parasites susceptibility to anti-malarial drugs needs further improvement. This has been necessitated by various setbacks, the
Enantioselective synthesis of (+)-brevipolide H.
This synthesis successfully addresses previous shortcomings in preparing brevipolides and provides the target molecule for cross metathesis in enantioselective fashion.
