To determine the course of serological tests in subjects with chronic T. cruzi infection treated with antitrypanosomal drugs.

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...
Serological tests are preferentially used for the diagnosis of Chagas' disease (CD) during the chronic phase because of the low parasitemia and high anti-Trypanosoma cruzi antibody titers. However, th...
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...
Alcohol consumption is associated with enhanced Th2 immune responses. Aim: To investigate the frequency of false-positive serological tests of allergy in alcoholics.
Diagnosis and treatment are central elements of strategies to control Trypanosoma brucei gambiense human African trypanosomiasis (HAT). Serological screening is a key entry point in diagnostic algorit...
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder characterized by a chronic inflammation of the small bowel mucosa, triggered by the ingestion of gluten-containing grains. The diagnosis of celiac...
The study determines the diagnostic performance and cost of rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) performed on human African trypanosomiasis clinical suspects in peripheral health centres, whether...
A continuing challenge to determining the response to treatment of early syphilis (primary, secondary, early latent syphilis) is exemplified by the substantial proportion of patients who f...
A relationship between IBD and spondyloarthropathy is well recognized. ASCA ( anti saccharomyces cerevisiae antibodies)are considered to be a serological marker for Crohn's disease and hav...
The study is being conducted to determine if the blood test Brain Natriuretic Protein (BNP) can demonstrate the presence of extra fluid in patients with chronic kidney disease treated by h...
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.
