Cotton rats (Sigmodon hispidus) and black rats (Rattus rattus) as possible reservoirs of Leishmania spp. in Lara State, Venezuela by Hector De Lima( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A total of 519 wild animals belonging to eleven species were collected during a two year study in a cutaneous leishmaniasis endemic area in Venezuela (La Matica, Lara State). The animals were captured in home-made Tomahawk-like traps baited with maize, bananas or other available local fruits, and parasites were isolated from 27 specimens. Two different species were found naturally infected with flagellates, i.e., cotton rats (Sigmodon hispidus) and black rats (Rattus rattus). Characterization of the parasites using PCR, kDNA restriction pattern and hybridization with species-specific probes revealed the presence of Leishmania (L.) mexicana in three of the black rats and Leishmania (V.) braziliensis in two others. The latter species was also identified in the single positive specimen of S. hispidus. The results suggested both species of animals as possible reservoirs of Leishmania sp (AU)

Isolation of Leishmania infantum, zymodeme MON-1 from canine and human visceral leishmaniasis on Margarita Island, Venezuela by Olga Zerpa( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An increase in the incidence of human visceral leishmaniasis (HVL) has been detected in recent years on Margarita Island, located off the NE coast of Venezuela. Recent studies have revealed reactivity to rK39 antigen (Leishmania chagasi) in 20 percent of 541 sera from domestic dogs in endemic communities; PCR reactions were positive using primers for the L. donovani complex. Here we report that isolates from human and canine infection, identified by isoenzyme analysis, correspond to L. infantum, zymodeme MON-1. This appears to be the first isolation and identification of an isolate from HVL on Margarita Island and demonstrates the presence of this zymodeme in the canine population (AU)
Epidemiological and immunological aspects of human visceral leishmaniasis on Margarita Island, Venezuela by Olga Zerpa( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sixty-five patients were diagnosed with visceral leishmaniasis (VL) on Margarita Island in the decade from 1990 to1999; 86.2 percent were <= 3 years old. All were leishmanin-negative at diagnosis. Evaluation of 23 cured patients in 1999 revealed that 22/23 had converted to leishmanin-positive; five had persisting antibodies to rK39 antigen, with no clinical evidence of disease. Leishmanin tests were positive in 20.2 percent of 1,643 healthy individuals from 417 households in endemic areas. Of the positive reactors, 39.8 percent were identified in 35 (8.4 percent) of the households, 15 of which had an antecedent case of VL, a serologically positive dog or both. Weak serological activity to rK39 antigen was detected in 3 of 488 human sera from the endemic areas. The presence of micro-foci of intense peri-urban transmission and the apparent absence of other Trypanosomatidae causing human disease offer a unique opportunity for the study of reservoirs, alternative vectors and evaluation of control measures on the Island (AU)

Tipicidad y atipicidad del eritema discromico perstans by Ricardo Perez Alfonzo( )

1 edition published in 1992 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Los autores evaluan un grupo de pacientes (49), referidos en los ultimos 10 anos con el diagnostico clinico de Eritema Discromico Perstans a la consulta externa del Hospital Vargas (Instituto de Biomedicina). Se tomaron los siguientes parametros: clinico, histopatologico, M. electronica, subpoblaciones celulares en tejido, inmunofluorescencia, anticuerpos antinucleares y otros examenes paraclinicos. Todos estos parametros fueron tomados en cuenta con la finalidad de precisar aquellos pacientes con EDP tipico en contraposicion con aquellos pacientes atipico. Hacen consideraciones para reconocer el EDP tipico como una entidad aparte, mientras que los pacientes con EDP atipico podrian ser una expresion de otra nosologia(AU)

1 edition published in 1983 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

El trabajo hace enfasis en lineas de investigacion que podrian tener un impacto practico sobre las medidas de control en um futuro no muy lejano. Se presta especial atencion a los estudios de anticuerpos antimicobacterianos para detectar la infeccion subclinica y evaluar la actividad clinica, respuesta al tratamiento y seguimiento
Disseminated anergic leishmaniasis( Visual )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Describes a case history of the rare or dessiminated anergic leishmaniasis and points out that a different strain of the leishmania parasite, transmitted through the infected phlebotomus sandfly may be responsible

Comparacion de cinco metodos para el diagnostico de Leishmaniasis cutanea by Olga Zerpa( )

1 edition published in 2002 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

La Leishmaniasis cutanea es producida por parasitos del genero Leishmania, el diagnostico definitivo se fundamenta en la observacion del agente en frotis, cortes histologicos, cultivos y Reaccion en Cadena de la Polimerasa (PCR). La demostracion del parasito es importante para diferenciar la Leishmaniasis de otras entidades clinicas. El objetivo de este trabajo fue comparar 5 metodos utilizados para el diagnostico de Leishmaniasis y evaluar su sensibilidad. Se evaluaron 42 pacientes de la consulta de Leishmaniasis del Instituto de Biomedicina, a los que se les hizo frotis por escarificado y biopsia de piel para estudio histologico, frotis por aposicion, cultivo y PCR. El porcentaje de positividad para cada una de las pruebas fue de 88 por ciento para la frotis por escarificado; 71,4 por ciento para la PCR; 59,5 por ciento tanto en el frotis por aposicion como la histopatologia y 52,4 por ciento para el cultivo. El frotis por escarificado resulto ser la prueba mas sensible, con una diferencia significativa (p<0,05) en la concordancia entre el escarificado y los otros metodos. El escarificado, por ser un metodo sencillo es ampliamente recomendado para los programas de control de esta enfermedad en areas endemicas(AU)

Trypanosoma (Herpetosoma) lewisi in Rattus spp from La Matica, Lara State, Venezuela and the possible relationship with zoonotic diseases by Hector de Lima( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

During a study carried out searching reservoir vertebrates for Leishmania spp in the area of La Matica, Lara State, Venezuela from March 1997 to October 1998, 40 specimens of Rattus spp were captured. Blood was extracted from all of them by means of cardiac puncture. Fresh blood and blood smears stained with Giemsa were examined. Of the 40 specimens studied, 22 (55 por ciento) resulted positive for the presence of Trypanosoma lewisi in blood. 63.15 por ciento of the infected animals were males (12/19), and 47.62 por ciento (10/21) females. By age, adult animals were infected in 62.96 por ciento of the cases (17/27) while young specimens were infected in 38.46 por ciento (5/13). The differences were not statistically significant. Regarding the period of capture almost all the individuals were captured during the raining season; a positive correlation between the average of the monthly rain and the number of individual captured was observed. Finally, we suggest the possible increase of the susceptibility of Rattus spp infected with T. lewisi to the infection by other species of the family Trypanosomatidae of public health importance(AU)
