After exchange transfusion, parasitemia decreased to 3.5% (Figure, panel B).
Parasitemia was determined with fluorescent microscope (Carl Zeiss Florescent microscope) with fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) filter under 100x magnification.
When parasitemia reached 40 %, blood was collected without anticoagulant and the sera obtained was stored at -20[degrees]C until further use (Spencer-Valero et al., 1998; Moll et al., 2003).
falciparum puede disminuir, dada una menor parasitemia por P.
% Parasitemia = (Number of parasitized RBC/Total number of RBC) x 100.
Parasite proliferation and dissemination by blood or lymphatic vessels characterized this phase, with a parasitemia peak that regresses in some days and tends to be undetectable in chronic phase.
cruzi, despite a significant reduction in the level of parasitemia. We found that immunization with rTcENO, but not with pBKTcENO, induced substantial protection in mice, indicating that rTcENO could be a good candidate to develop a vaccine against Chagas disease.
Los datos reportados difieren para la enfermedad de Chagas en fase cronica y aguda, en cuanto a la transmision maternofetal se ha reportado tasas tan altas como de 53% con la infeccion aguda y de 100% en maternas con Chagas agudo e inmunosupresion por el VIH (14), en la infeccion cronica existe un aumento de la parasitemia antes de las 21 semanas de gestacion (15), reportandose un riesgo de transmision vertical del 5% en gestantes cronicas de areas endemicas, esto se atribuye al deficit de la inmunidad innata con reduccion de la liberacion del factor de necrosis tumoral alfa, propio del embarazo, aumentando el riesgo de transmision vertical en gestantes infectadas cronicamente (14).
gondii will only be observed in peripheral venous blood samples in cases of parasitemia, i.e., when protozoan dissemination or passage occurs in the blood.
Sin embargo, la evidencia experimental en el modelo murino sugiere que, el curso de la infeccion y la severidad del dano tisular, es el resultado de una compleja interaccion entre las caracteristicas geneticas y biologicas de la cepa o aislado infectante del parasito (virulencia, patogenicidad, niveles de parasitemia, tropismo tisular, induccion de respuesta inmune, resistencia a drogas) y factores propios del hospedero (sexo, edad y el repertorio genetico asociado a los mecanismos de respuesta inmune) (Meza et al, 2014).
Accurate treatment of malaria is solely dependent upon the early and accurate diagnosis.8 Microscopic screening of Giemse-stained thick and thin blood smears is considered to be the gold standard and is used as a conventional method to diagnose malaria in various industrialized countries.14,15 Despite the fact that this technique is economical, quick and can recognize the infection at parasitemia level (usually at a level 50 to 500 parasites/ul) and can distinguish between species,16 however, this due to its inability to sense low parasitemia level and co-infections drops its reliability.17,18 It also requires skillful technicians to identify the species accurately and unskilled technicians may lead to misdiagnose and ultimately invalid treatment.14,15
