Chagas cardiomyopathy associated with serological cure after trypanocidal treatment during childhood.

Chagas disease is a chronic parasitological disease, which could cause cardiac manifestations in approximately one-third of affected individuals. Benznidazole and nifurtimox are used to treat this par...

Comparative study of two commercial tests for Strongyloides stercoralis serologic diagnosis.

Serological diagnosis of Strongyloides stercoralis is often limited by its low specificity due to cross-reactivity with other parasitic nematodes. Novel serological tests assumed to be more specific h...

False-positive results of serological tests for allergy in alcoholics.

Alcohol consumption is associated with enhanced Th2 immune responses. Aim: To investigate the frequency of false-positive serological tests of allergy in alcoholics.

Using FT-IR spectroscopy for the identification of the T. cruzi, T. rangeli, and the L. chagasi species.

The cross-reaction in the diagnosis results is a serious problem, leading to an incorrect treatment and several injuries to patients. The Trypanosoma rangeli and Trypanosoma cruzi belong to the genus ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Serological tests that measure anti-hemadsorption agents such as antiviral ANTIBODIES that block VIRAL HEMAGGLUNININS from adhering to the surface of red blood cells.

Immune status consisting of non-production of HIV antibodies, as determined by various serological tests.

HLA-DR antigen subtypes that have been classified according to their affinity to specific ANTIBODIES. The DNA sequence analyses of HLA-DR ALPHA-CHAINS and HLA-DR BETA-CHAINS has for the most part revealed the specific alleles that are responsible for each serological subtype.

Identification of the major histocompatibility antigens of transplant DONORS and potential recipients, usually by serological tests. Donor and recipient pairs should be of identical ABO blood group, and in addition should be matched as closely as possible for HISTOCOMPATIBILITY ANTIGENS in order to minimize the likelihood of allograft rejection. (King, Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)

A hemoflagellate parasite affecting domestic and wild animals, as well as humans and invertebrates. Though it induces an immune response, it is non-pathogenic in humans and other vertebrates. It is cross-reactive with TRYPANOSOMA CRUZI and can thus cause false positives for CHAGAS DISEASE.
