Resumo: BACKGROUND: The Trypanosoma cruzi satellite DNA (satDNA) OligoC-TesT is a standardised PCR format for diagnosis of Chagas disease. The sensitivity of the test is lower for discrete typing unit (DTU) TcI than for TcII-VI and the test has not been evaluated in chronic Chagas disease patients. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: We developed a new prototype of the OligoC-TesT based on kinetoplast DNA (kDNA) detection. We evaluated the satDNA and kDNA OligoC-TesTs in a multi-cohort study with 187 c (mais)

Resumo: Organ transplantation (TX) is a novel transmission modality of Chagas disease. The results of molecular diagnosis and characterization of Trypanosoma cruzi acute infection in naïve TX recipients transplanted with organs from infected deceased donors are reported. Peripheral blood and cerebrospinal fluid samples from the TX recipients of organs from infected donors were prospectively and sequentially studied for detection of T. cruzi by means of kinetoplastid DNA polymerase chain reaction ( (mais)

Resumo: The disappearance of lytic, protective antibodies (Abs) from the serum of patients with Chagas disease is accepted as a reliable indicator of parasitological cure. The efficiency of a chemiluminescent enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay based on a purified, trypomastigote-derived glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored mucin antigen for the serologic detection of lytic Abs against Trypanosoma cruzi was evaluated in a nonendemic setting using a panel of 92 positive and 58 negative human sera.

Resumo: BACKGROUND: The factors influencing variation in the clinical forms of Chagas disease have not been elucidated; however, it is likely that the genetics of both the host and the parasite are involved. Several studies have attempted to correlate the T. cruzi strains involved in infection with the clinical forms of the disease by using hemoculture and/or PCR-based genotyping of parasites from infected human tissues. However, both techniques have limitations that hamper the analysis of large nu (mais)

Resumo: Congenital transmission of Chagas disease now occurs in areas where the disease is non-endemic, and also from one generation to another. According to epidemiological data from Latin America, the prevalence of the disease in pregnant women is 0.7%-54%, and the prevalence of vertical transmission is around 5%-6%. Congenital T. cruzi infection is an acute infection in newborns that should be treated with anti-parasitic therapy. The treatment of pregnant women could also have an impact on the c (mais)

Resumo: Chagas disease is a tropical parasitic disease caused by the flagellate protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi (T. cruzi) and currently affecting large portions of the Americas. One of the standard laboratory methods to determine the presence of the parasite is by direct visualization in blood smears stained with some colorant. This method is time-consuming, requires trained microscopists and is prone to human mistakes. In this article we propose a novel algorithm for the automatic detection of T. cru (mais)

Resumo: The chronic Chagas disease, which is dumb in approximately 2/3 of the cases, is present from now on all the continents, with local prevalence which is a function of the age, the origin and the importance of the immigration from South and Central America. The European, North American, Japanese or Australian general practitioner can be thus confronted with this disease in a half-dozen of circumstances which we tried to define while calling back way the characteristic main things of the diseas (mais)

Resumo: OBJECTIVE: Chronic Chagas disease afflicts millions of patients in Latin America of which 70% remain asymptomatic but 30% develop fatal heart injury. To evaluate the impact of laboratory medicine for diagnosis and guiding of patients with Chagas' heart disease, we measured N-terminal B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and cardiac troponin T (cTnT). DESIGN AND METHODS: NT-proBNP and cTnT using the highly sensitive assay (hs-cTnT) were measured in 48 asymptomatic Chagas' patients (control (mais)

Resumo: Chagas disease is caused by the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi. The disease is difficult to detect because of the asymptomatic pathogenesis after infection. Chagas disease is endemic throughout much of Mexico, Central America, and South America, but human migration patterns are bringing the pathogen to the United States. The disease currently affects 16 to 18 million people with approximately 50 000 deaths annually in these countries. In the United States, national screening of the blood supply (mais)
