Background: In Latin America, Chagas disease is endemic, with a high prevalence in rural indigenous communities and an increasing prevalence in urban areas owing to migration from rural areas with active vector transmission. This study aimed to assess differences in the prevalence of Chagas disease in urban and rural moqoit communities, one of the...

Objective The use of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) increased in the last year to prevent SARS-CoV-2 infection due to its use as disinfectant and therapeutic human treatments against viral infections. The absence of toxicological studies and sanitary regulation of this contaminant represents a serious threat to human and environmental health worldwide. Th...

The toxicity of glyphosate-based herbicide (GBH) and arsenite (As(III)) as individual toxicants and in mixture (50:50 v/v, GBH-As(III)) was determined in Rhinella arenarum tadpoles during acute (48 h) and chronic assays (22 days). In both types of assays, the levels of enzymatic activity [Acetylcholinesterase (AChE), Carboxylesterase (CbE), and Glu...

Introduction: Chagas´Disease (CD) is endemic en Chaco Región. It is unknown the seroprevalence in population older than 14 years old from rural Chaco areas of Santa Fe Province. This study aimed to determine the seroprevalence of and socio-environmental factors associated with CD in inhabitants >14 years old of rural Chaco areas of Santa Fe, Argent...

Chlorpyrifos (CPF) is a broad spectrum pesticide commonly used for insect control, has great affinity for lipids and is thus a potential for bioaccumulation in aquatic organisms. The aim of this study was to evaluate the toxicity of CPF using the common toad Rhinella arenarum via dermal uptake in plastic bucket to simulate their natural exposition...
Article
Odontoprynus americanus tadpoles were used to determine the safety concentration of pyriproxyfen (PPF) insecticide by acute and sublethal toxicity tests (nominal range tested 0.01 to 10 [± 15%] PPF mg/L). Median lethal concentration (LC50) and no, and lowest-observed-effect concentrations (NOEC and LOEC, respectively) were calculated. We also asses...

Objective The ecotoxic effects of pesticide used for mosquito’s control TRISADA® (TRI) [deltamethrin (D) 1%+tetramethrin (T) 0.33%, and piperonyl butoxide (PB) 0.29%] on amphibian larvae were investigated. Methods In the laboratory, Rhinella arenarum tadpoles were exposed to nominal concentrations of 0.0000 (control; CO), 0.0003125% (C1); 0.000625...

The sensitivity of rapid diagnostic tests (RDT) for Chagas disease is not great enough for their single use. The aim of this paper was to evaluate the performance of two RDTs for Chagas disease, used simultaneously. Two different RDTs (A and B) were performed in 64 and 42 serum samples that were negative and positive, respectively, by conventional...
Article
Emerging contaminants derive from pharmaceuticals, pesticides, disinfection by-products, home and care products, and wood preservation and industrial chemicals that contain specific drugs, metals, metal oxides and metalloids as nanoparticles (NPs) in their formulations. Although the use of silicon dioxide (SiO2) NPs in commercial products increases...

The toxic or nutritionally deleterious effects resulting from the consumption of genetically modified (GM) foods are still a matter of debate worldwide. In amphibians, the environmental impact of the Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) toxin (e.g., Cry proteins) engineered into GM Bt crops is barely known. Thus, the aim of the present study was to evaluate...

Many patients with Chagas disease live in remote communities that lack both equipment and trained personnel to perform a diagnosis by conventional serology (CS). Thus, reliable tests suitable for use under difficult conditions are required. In this study, we evaluated the ability of personnel with and without laboratory skills to perform immunochro...

The aim of the present study was to diagnose Chagas infection in children 1 to 15 years of age living in a risk area or with migrant background in Santa Fe province, to estimate the most probable way of infection and to compare the prevalence with previous works. A seroepidemiological study was conducted in schools in the districts Garabato, Fortin...
