Título: Serum pooling for HIV Screening in Trinidad and Tobago
Fonte: CLAN : Caribbean laboratory action news;3(2):1-3, December 1993. tab.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: "Serum Pooling for HIV screening in Trinidad and Tobago" clearly demonstrates the usefulness of serum pooling for HIV prevalence studies in the Caribbean. However, the author cautioned its usefulness for Blood Bank screening based on the results of this study which showed that weakly reactive samples were missed by both assays, namely: Abbott HIV-1 Recombinant and ENI pharmacia Virgo HTLV III

Título: Dengue in Nicaragua, 1994: reintroduction of serotype 3 in the Americas
Idioma: En.
Resumo: The principal aim of the report presented here is to describe the reappearance of dengue serotype 3 in the Americas, following a 17-year absence, throughthe recent experience of Nicaragua. In all, 356 serum samples obtained through Nicaragua's dengue monitoring system in October 1994 during an epidemic were examined. Anti-dengue IgM antibodies were detected in 43 percent of these, with sera from 12 of the 18 areas covered by Nicaragua's local integrated health care systems yielding positive results. In addition, dengue virus was isolated from 5 of 24 sera obtained from patients with hemorrhagic sympthoms, dengue 3 being isolated from 3 of these samples and dengue 1 from the other 2. A diagnosis of dengue with hemorrhagic manifestations or of hemorrhagic dengue was supported or confirmed by laboratory findings obtained from 26 of 39 patients hospitalized in Leon or Managua. The most frequent sympthoms of 18 patients diagnosed as having dengue with hemorrhagic manifestations were fever, headache, vomiting, myalgia, arthralgia, and epistaxis. The remaining eight patients, diagnosed as having probable hemorragic dengue, exhibited fever, general malaise, hemorrhaging, thromboctytopenia, hemoconcentration, and hemagglutination-inhibition antibody titers ranging from 640 to 20 480. Overall, the reappearance of dengue serotype 3 in the Region was confirmed, together with its ability to produce cases of hemorrhagic dengue. At least in Nicaragua, it is apparent that the introduction of dengue serotype 3 has prompted an increase in the number of classical dengue and the hemorrhagic dengue cases, a scenario that might constitute the grim prelude to future developments in the Americas if urgent attention is not given to controlling the disease's mosquito vector (AU)

Título: The isolation of St Louis virus from Trinidad mosquitoes
Fonte: Am J Trop Med Hyg;6(4):688-92, 1957.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: St. Louis encephalites virus has been isolated fron three ground-pool breeding species of mosquitoes collected in Trinidadian forests. Identity was established by comparison with a known strain of St. Louis virus and other related viruses. These represent the first strains of St Louis virus known to be isolated from mosquitoes outside of the continential United States (Summary)

Título: Respiratory viruses in Jamaica: a virological and serological study. 2. Hemagglutination-inhibiting antibodies to influenza A viruses in the sera of Jamaicans
Fonte: Am J Epidemiol;86(3):700-9, Nov. 1967.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: The incidence and level of hemagglutination-inhibiting antibodies to 4 group A infleunza viruses in the population of Jamaica has shown that there is an approximately similar age distribution of antibodies to the different infleunza strains as has been encountered else-where. Antibody titres to A/Swine/1976/31 were highest in sera from older Jamaicans; antibodies titres to A1/Fort Manmouth/1/47 were maximal in the younger segment of the population and antibody titres to A/Puerto Rico/8/34 reached their highest levels in sera from intermediate age groups. The greatest incidences and levels of hemagluttination-inhibiting antibody in almost all age groups were observed against infleunza A2/Jamaica/2/63, a locally recovered type A2 strain.(Summary)

Fonte: Am J Trop Med Hyg;17(2):276-84, Mar. 1968.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: Virus isolates totaling 593 and representing 19 different virus types were recovered from sentinel animals, small mammals, and arthropods during studies carried out in Bush Bush Forest, Trinidad, over a 5-year period. The laboratory techniques used are described, and details are given regarding 49 isolates belonging to 12 virus types: Una, St. Louis encephalitis, Ilheus, Bush-bush, TRVL 57896 (Moriche), Wyeomyia, Cache Valley, Cocal, Oropouche, Aruac, Nariva, and TVRL 39316-1-5 type (Pacui). The remaining 544 isolates were identified as Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus or members of serologic groups C and Guama, and are discussed elsewhere (AU)

Título: The use of adjuvant and sarcoma 180 cells in the production of mouse hyperimmune ascitic fluids to arboviruses
Fonte: Am J Trop Med Hyg;15(2):219-26, Mar. 1966.
Idioma: En.
Resumo: A method for producing large volumes of mouse ascitic fluids with high viral antibody titers by the use of adjuvant in combination with Sarcoma 180 cells is described. Ascitic fluids so produced reacted specifically with the viruses to which they were prepared. In cross complement-fixation and hemagglutination-inhibition tests, none of 26 ascitic fluids prepared to individual viruses and of nine polyvalent ascitic fluids reacted with antigens outside the recongnized or artificial grouping. Satisfactory neutralization indices were obtained with the ascitic fluids tested.(AU)
