Expression of fluorescent genes in trypanosoma cruzi and trypanosoma rangeli (Kinetoplastida: Trypanosomatidae): Its application to parasite-vector biology
(Journal of Medical Entomology 42(1), 2005-01)
Detection of trypanosoma cruzi and trypanosoma rangeli infection by duplex PCR assay based on telomeric sequences
(CLINICAL AND DIAGNOSTIC LABORATORY IMMUNOLOGY, Sept. 2003, 2003-09)
Detection and significance of inapparent infection in chagas disease in western Venezuela
(Am. J. Trop. Med. Hyg., 65(3), 2001, 2001)
Inapparent infections of Trypanosoma cruzi were detected in symptomless seropositive people living in close proximity, and under the same conditions of risk, to patients with acute Chagas disease. Similar infections were ...
Detection of Leishmania causing visceral Leishmaniasis in the old and new worlds by a polymerase chain reaction assay based on telomeric sequences
(Am. J. Trop. Med. Hyg., 65(5), 2001, 2001)
We present a new polymerase chain reaction assay based on telomeric sequences of Leishmania donovani. When this assay was used in dilutions of purified L. donovani DNA, a strong amplification signal was observed with 1 fg ...
Acute chagas’ disease in western Venezuela: A clinical, seroparasitologic, and epidemiologic study
(The American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, 1999-02)
A clinical, parasitologic, and serologic study carried out between 1988 and 1996 on 59 acute-phase patients in areas of western Venezuela where Chagas’ disease is endemic showed 19 symptomatic patterns or groups of symptoms ...
Myocardial parasite persistence in chronic chagasic patients
(Am. J. Trop. Med. Hyg., 60(5), 1999, 1999)
The persistence of Trypanosoma cruzi tissue forms was detected in the myocardium of seropositive individuals clinically diagnosed as chronic chagasic patients following endomyocardial biopsies (EMBs) processed by ...
