Association between Trypanosoma cruzi zymodemes and specific humoral depression in chronic chagasic patients
(Transantions of The Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, 1989)
We previously rerported four autochthonous cases of Chagas disease in Bolivia, presenting a particular pattern of negative serology with positive xenodiagnosis (Brenière et al., 1984). To date, we have observed 13 similar ...
Specific IgE antibodies to Leishmania braziliensis in patients with mucocutaneous leishmaniasis
(Ann. Immunol., 1983)
Abstract A total of 116 sera of patients suffering from South American mucocutaneous leishmaniasis were analysed using the RAST (L. braziliensis-specific) and RIST techniques. Results of total and specific IgE levels were ...
Visceral canine leishmaniasis in Bolivia
(Transantions of The Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, 1982-05-11)
We report the first description ofr visceral canine leishmaniasis in Bolivia. In a first stage (October 1980), three dogs presenting mucous nasal lesions were found to be infected with Leishmania (numerous amastigotes on ...

Antigenic specificity of the 72-kilodalton major surface glycoprotein of Leishmania braziliensis braziliensis
(Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 1991)
We examined the expression and the antigenicity of the major surface polypeptides of Leishmania braziliensis braziliensis and Leishmania donovani chagasi, parasites which commonly coexist in the same endemic areas of ...
Estimation of population at risk of infection and number of cases of Leishmaniasis
(Parasitology Today, 1992)
ln this paper, Dick Ashford, Philipe Desjeux ond Peter deRaadt attempt to estimate the total number of people at risk of acquiring disease caused by infetion with Leishmania spp. ln many areas a very small risk is distributed ...

(Ann. Soc. Belge Med. Trop., 1985)
Summary - Genetic interpretation of. T. cruzi zymograms has led to various hypotheses which are reviewed.
Addional data on Trypanosoma cruzi isozymic strains encountered in Bolivian domestic transmission cycles
(Transantions of The Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, 1986)
Abstract We have collected in Bolivia 212 stocks of Trypanosoma cruzi from domestic transmission cycles and have assayed for nine enzyme systems (11 gene loci). Only a few different isozyme profiles exist, without ...
Zymodemes of Trypanosoma cruzi isolated from wild mammals in Bolivia
(Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz, 1988)
Trypanosoma cruzi, the etiological agent of Chagas' disease, is a very heterogeneous population of parasites circulating among man, vectors and wild and domestic reservoirs. Until now, few data have been ...
