Publication date: Available online 6 December 2019Source: Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) - Molecular Basis of DiseaseAuthor(s): Adriana Egui, Manuel Carlos López, Inmaculada Gómez, Marina Simón, Manuel Segovia, M. Carmen ThomasAbstractOne of the greatest challenges in Chagas disease research is the search for tools that will enable the assessment of pharmacological treatment efficacy. A recently described set of serological biomarkers composed of four parasite antigens and established criteria of treatment efficacy allowed the evaluation of the impact of benznidazole treatment a short/medium time ...

Publication date: Available online 3 December 2019Source: Journal of Molecular Graphics and ModellingAuthor(s): Edward A. Valera-Vera, Melisa Sayé, Chantal Reigada, Mariana R. Miranda, Claudio A. PereiraAbstractEnolase is a glycolytic enzyme that catalyzes the interconversion between 2-phosphoglycerate and phosphoenolpyruvate. In trypanosomatids, enolase was proposed as a key enzyme after in silico and in vivo analysis and it was validated as a protein essential for the survival of the parasite. Therefore, enolase constitutes an interesting enzyme target for the identification of drugs against Chagas disease. In thi...

CONCLUSION: HCV infection was more common in older patients who may have received RBCs before testing was performed on donations, suggesting possible historic transfusion transmission. The cohort showed decreasing rates of infections and a reduction in transfusion transmission markers in younger patients compared to historical literature except for syphilis, indicating contemporary reduced risk of TTI.

Abstract SUMMARYTrypanosoma cruzi is the etiological agent of Chagas disease, usually transmitted by triatomine vectors. An estimated 20 to 30% of infected individuals develop potentially lethal cardiac or gastrointestinal disease. Sylvatic transmission cycles exist in the southern United States, involving 11 triatomine vector species and infected mammals such as rodents, opossums, and dogs. Nevertheless, imported chronic T. cruzi infections in migrants from Latin America vastly outnumber locally acquired human cases. Benznidazole is now FDA approved, and clinical and public health efforts are under way by researc...

While congenital Chagas occurs at rates higher than congenital syphilis, and prenatal care is a known time to capture chronic conditions while a woman is insured and engaged in care, there is still not routine perinatal screening. We sought to evaluate the success of a 2 question screen in identifying maternal Chagas disease during prenatal care.

An estimated 300,000 individuals have Chagas disease in the United States and Chagas is passed vertically at rates higher than syphilis, there is still not routine perinatal Chagas screening. We sought to evaluate the success of a simple screening program to identify maternal Chagas disease during prenatal care.
