Articles on Parasitology, a biological discipline that studies parasites, their hosts, and the relationship between them
Trypanosoma cruzi: amastigote polymorphism defined by monoclonal antibodiesThe authors have raised monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) directed towards amastigote forms of Trypanosoma cruzi
Parameters affecting cellular invasion and escape from the parasitophorous vacuole by different infective forms of Trypanosoma cruziIn this study the authors examined certain aspects of the process of cell invasion and parasitophorous vacuole escape by metacyclic trypomastigotes and extracellular amastigote forms of Trypanosoma cruzi
A Role for Extracellular Amastigotes in the Immunopathology of Chagas DiseaseIn spite of the growing knowledge obtained about immune control of Trypanosoma cruzi infection, the mechanisms responsible for the variable clinico-pathological expression of Chagas disease remain unknown.
Potent possibilities for parasite attackNew Leishmania genome sequences highlight gene targets for treatment development
Studies identify more effective treatment for malaria control during pregnancy in AfricaA review of previous studies indicates that two doses of a malaria preventive therapy during pregnancy provides substantial benefit to HIV-negative women in Africa, with more frequent dosing apparently necessary for HIV-positive women
Malaria-resistant mosquitoes battle disease with 'molecular warhead'A team led by UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers has discovered why some mosquitoes are resistant to malaria, a finding that may one day help fight a disease that afflicts and kills millions of people.
CRESIB coordinates an international consortium to fight malaria caused by Plasmodium vivaxThe CRESIB has today presented the research programme on malaria by Plasmodium vivax, a parasite causing over 70 million yearly cases of malaria in the world.
Outwitting pesky parasitesAcross the southern United States, an invisible, yet deadly parasite known as the root-knot nematode is crippling soybean crops.
Identified mechanism in the malaria parasite to help it adapt to infected individualsResearch has been conducted on the genes of the parasite that play a role during the invasion of red blood cells, as these are very clear targets to develop vaccines against the disease
Novel approach for rapid identification and development of malaria vaccinesMalaria is the world's most frequent parasitic disease, affecting more than 100 countries in the tropical zones, mostly in Africa, and 40% of the world population, with more than a million deaths per year.
Binghamton University researchers investigate evolving malaria resistanceScientists hope to understand how the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum evolved resistance to the once-effective medication chloroquine.
Discovery could help stop malaria at its source -- the mosquitoAs summer temperatures cool in the United States, fewer mosquitoes whir around our tiki torches.
UGA researchers discover how human body fights off African parasiteResearch could lead to new methods of controlling similar parasites that cause endemic diseases
Sugar identified as key to malaria parasite invasionResearchers at the Johns Hopkins Malaria Research Institute (JHMRI) have identified a sugar in mosquitoes that allows the malaria-causing parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, to attach itself to the mosquito's gut.
Dermatologists identify North Texas leishmaniasis outbreakA team of dermatologists and dermatopathologists has identified nine North Texas cases of an infectious skin disease common in South America, Mexico and in the Middle East, where it is sometimes referred to as a "Baghdad boil."
Newly Identified Strains Of Chlamydia Trachomatis Could Produce New DiseasesA new study led by a scientist at Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute (CHORI) is the first to conclude that Chlamydia trachomatis is evolving at a rate faster than scientists first thought or imagined.
Genetic diversity of Plasmodium vivax in Kolkata, IndiaThe genotyping protocols used in this study may be useful for differentiating re-infection from relapse and recrudescence in studies assessing of malarial drug efficacy in vivax malaria.
Silence Of The Amoebae: Scientists Render A Disease-causing Pathogen HarmlessNews: Freedom of expression is great, but silence is golden -- at least when it comes to amoebae, which are intestine-dwelling parasites that cause life-threatening dysentery in many parts of the world.
Mammalian cell invasion and intracellular trafficking by Trypanosoma cruzi infective formsThe article focused on how amastigotes can invade mammalian cells with infectivities comparable to that of trypomastigotes. Differences in cellular responses induced by amastigotes and trypomastigotes regarding cytoskeletal components and actin-rich proje
Molecular basis of mammalian cell invasion by Trypanosoma cruziThe article focused on the mechanisms of target cell invasion by metacyclic trypomastigotes and mammalian tissue culture trypomastigotes of Trypanosoma cruzi
