Detection of Helicobacter pylori by Real-Time PCR for 16s rRNA in Stools of NonInfected Healthy Children, Using ELISA Antigen Stool Test as the Gold Standard
BackgroundWe previously detected Helicobacter pylori infection by stool antigen ELISA assay in 33-41% of asymptomatic Chilean children between 2-3 years of age, of which 11-20% had a transient infection and 21-22% a ...
Application of Real-Time PCR Stool Assay for Helicobacter pylori Detection and Clarithromycin Susceptibility Testing in Brazilian Children
Background: Helicobacter pylori ClariRes assay is a novel commercially available real-time PCR assay allowing H. pylori detection and clarithromycin susceptibility testing in either gastric biopsy or stool specimens. ...
An improved DNA isolation technique for PCR detection of Strongyloides stercoralis in stool samples
Strongyloides stercoralis is a nematode that causes severe infections in immunocompromised patients. The low parasitic burden of chronically infected patients makes diagnosis difficult to achieve by conventional methods. ...
BASAL CUT QUALITY IN SUGARCANE PLANTS USING THREE KNIFE MODELS
(Soc Brasil Engenharia Agricola, 2015-05-01)
Sugarcane mechanized harvesting is a growing and irreversible trend towards sugarcane industry because of the increased workability during night and day shifts besides requirements of environmental and labor laws related ...
Determination of iron in stools as a method to monitor consumption of iron-fortified products in infants
We describe a quantitative method for determination of iron in stool to monitor consumption of iron-fortified milk in infants. The method is simple, fast, and inexpensive. Stool samples from infants consuming fortified ...
Recombinase polymerase amplification-based assay to diagnose Giardia in stool samples
(American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, 2015)
Giardia duodenalis is one of the most commonly identified parasites in stool samples. Although relatively easy to treat, giardiasis can be difficult to detect as it presents similar to other diarrheal diseases. Here, we ...
