Trypanosoma rangeli infected mouse sera reactivity with Trypanosoma cruzi synthetic peptides
(Sociedad Chilena de Parasitología, 2007)
Congenital co-infection with different Trypanosoma cruzi lineages
Variability of mixed Trypanosoma cruzi congenital infection in Chile in twenty one congenital samples of Chagas disease is reported. Recognition of infecting strains was performed by minicircle hybridization tests. ...
Trypanosoma cruzi evades the complement system as an efficient strategy to survive in the Mammalian host: the specific roles of host/parasite molecules and Trypanosoma cruzi Calreticulin
(Frontiers media SA, 2017)
American Trypanosomiasis is an important neglected reemerging tropical parasitism, infecting about 8 million people worldwide. Its agent, Trypanosoma cruzi, exhibits multiple mechanisms to evade the host immune response ...
Trypanosoma cruzi infection in dogs and cats and household seroreactivity to T. cruzi in a rural community in northeast Brazil
(American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, 1978-11)
TESA-blot for the diagnosis of Chagas disease in dogs from co-endemic regions for Trypanosoma cruzi, Trypanosoma evansi and Leishmania chagasi
(Elsevier B.V., 2009-07-01)
We standardized serodiagnosis of dogs infected with Trypanosoma cruzi using TESA (trypomastigote excreted-secreted antigen)-blot developed for human Chagas disease. TESA-blot showed 100% sensitivity and specificity. In ...
Pentamidine exerts in vitro and in vivo anti Trypanosoma cruzi activity and inhibits the polyamine transport in Trypanosoma cruzi
Pentamidine is an antiprotozoal and fungicide drug used in the treatment of leishmaniasis and African trypanosomiasis. Despite its extensive use as antiparasitic drug, little evidence exists about the effect of pentamidine ...
Direct identification of Trypanosoma cruzi natural clones in vectors and mammalian hosts by polymerase chain reaction amplification
(Am. J. Trop. Med. Hyg., 1992)
Abstract. The polymerase chain reaction was used to amplify the highly variable region of the kinetoplast minicircle of Trypanosoma cruzi directly in biological samples (feces of infected Triatomine bugs, blood samples ...
