Título: Frequency of seropositivity for Coxiella burnetii immunoglobulins in livestock and abattoir workers in Trinidad
Fonte: The new microbiologica;34(2):219-224, Apr. 30, 2011. tab.
Idioma: en.
Resumo: Coxiella burnetii is a zoonotic, rickettsial pathogen which causes mild and severe diseases often referred to as Q-fever in humans, particularly those occupationally exposed. This study determined the seropositivity for Coxiella burnetii IgM immunoglobulins using the enzyme immunoassay (EIA) in livestock and abattoir workers in Trinidad and related to selected personal characteristics to seroprevalence. Overall, of the 455 humans whose serum samples were tested, 20 (4.4%) were seropositive for C. burnetii IgM immunoglobulin, comprising 13 (4.6%) out of 283 livestock workers, 4 (4.7%) out of 85 abattoir workers and 3 (3.4%) out of 87 office workers (P>0.05; ÷2).The age, sex and race of workers were not significantly associated with the occurrence of acute Q-fever (P>0.05; ÷2). This is considered the first documentation of Q-fever in the human population in Trinidad. It is difficult to assess the impact of the disease in the country since the disease is not routinely tested for in the local hospitals or diagnostic laboratories.

Título: Recurrent infections in sickle cell disease: haematological and immune studies
Fonte: Clin Chim Acta;148(3):161-5, June 14, 1985.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: Some haematological and immunological indices were compared in 19 children with sickle cell disease and a history of recurrent infections and in 16 children with sickle cell disease without any known infections. The recurrent infection group had significantly greater pitted red cell counts and greater absolute monocyte counts. No differences were apparent in routine haematological indices, foetal haemoglobin, immunoglobulin, or complement levels between the groups. The interpretation of these results is discussed (AU)

Título: Relationship of acute rheumatic fever to acute glomerulonephritis in Trinidad
Fonte: J Infect Dis;125(6):619-25, June 1972.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: The incidence of acute rheumatic fever decreased during a major epidemic of acute glomerulonephritis in Trinidad in 1965. Subsequently, several minor increases in the incidence of acute rheumatic fever have been coincident with more marked increases in the incidence of acute glomerulonephritis. The relation of streptococcal infections to acute glomerulonephritis has been studied in Trinidad for the past six years. Their relation to acute rheumatic fever also has been examined during the last year of these studies. The streptococcal strains isolated from patients with acute rheumatic fever generally have differed from those found in patients with acute glomerulonephritis. Moreover, while streptococcal skin infections have been associated with acute glomerulonephritis, no such association has been apparent with rheumatic fever. However, titers of antistreptolysin O were relatively low, while titers of antihyaluronidase were makedly increased in the patients with acute rheumatic fever, much as they have been in most patients with acute glomerulonephritis in Trinidad (AU)

Fonte: Arch Dis Child;53(5):426-8, May 1978.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: Two cases of infantile cortical hyperostosis are reported. Both had raised immunoglobulins. Particularly remarkable were the IgA and IgM levels, a finding infrequently reported (AU)

Título: Immunological studies in Schistosoma mansoni infection in St. Lucia
Fonte: Ann Trop Med Parasitol;66(3):369-73, Sept. 1972.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: An investigation was made of the immunological status of matched groups of patients with Schictosoma mansoni infection in St. Lucia, one group with hepatosplenic disease and the other with only intestinal disease. No impairment of humoral or cellular immunity was detected in either group. IgG and IgM levels were above normal range and were higher in the patients with intestinal disease, but only the difference between groups in IgG level was statistically significant. In their reaction to specific schistisome antigens and ability to develop delayed hypersensitivity, the groups were about equal. (AU)

Título: Serum immunoglobulin levels in children with homozygous sickle cell disease
Fonte: Clin Chim Acta;125(1):81-7, Oct. 13, 1982.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: Serum immunoglobulin levels (IgA, IgG, and IgM) have been assayed in a representative sample of children (aged 1-7 years) with homozygous sickle cell disease and in age/sex-matched control children with a normal haemoglobin genotype, followed from birth in a prospective cohort study. In SS disease, significant elevation of IgA occurred from the age of two years and of IgG from the age of six years. IgM levels were not significantly different in the two genotypes. The mechanisms contributing to these changes in immunoglobulins are currently unclear as is their clinical significance.(AU)

Título: Immunoglobulin and C3 levels in normal human amniotic fluid
Fonte: West Indian med. j;32(3):140-6, Sept. 1983.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: Forty-one amniotic fluid samples were tested by single radial immunodiffusion, using Hyland plates for the demonstration of IgG, IgA, IgD, IgM and C3. All of the immunoglobulins except IgM could be detected throughout gestation. There was a tendency to increase during mid-pregnancy and thereafter to decrease toward term. IgM was detected in only 5 samples (12.2 percent) obtained at term. The literature is reviewed with particular emphasis on IgD, IgM and C3 in amniotic fluid (AU)

Título: Immunoglobulin and C3 levels in maternal and cord blood in Jamaica
Fonte: Trop Geogr Med;37(4):304-8, Dec. 1985.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: IgG, IgM, IgA and C3 were estimated by radial immunodiffusion (RID) in one hundred paired maternal and cord blood samples. The mean maternal IgG, and IgM, and IgA were 2112 mg/dl, 118 mg/dl and 251 mg/dl, respectively, while in corresponding infants, the mean levels were 2194 mg/dl, 36 mg/dl and 19 mg/dl. Mean cord serum C3 levels was 113 mg/dl, approximately half the maternal level (203 mg/dl). Variation in the gestational age, birth weight, duration of labour and maternal pre-eclamptic toxaemia did not significantly affect the immunoglobulin levels. Seven out of 36 (16 percent) cord blood with IgM level greater than 36 mg/dl showed either fourfold rise or high antibody titres against one of the TORCH (toxoplasma, rubella, cytomegalovirus and herpes simplex virus) agents. Screening of cord serum for IgM levels can be of particular value in detection of newborn infants with clinically apparent or inapparent intrauterine infections (AU)
