Detection of molecular markers for chloroquine and pyrimethamine/sulfadoxineresistance in imported cases of Plasmodium falciparum malaria in Poland

The identified mutations in the pfcrt, dhfr and dhps genes of Plasmodiumfalciparum show a very high correlation with resistance to chloroquine, pyrimethamine andsulfadoxine, the drugs that are still used as malaria chemoprophylaxis or treatment. We undertook amolecular screening of 82… Read moreDetection of molecular markers for chloroquine and pyrimethamine/sulfadoxineresistance in imported cases of Plasmodium falciparum malaria in Poland

Brasergasilus bifurcatus sp Nov (Copepoda, Ergasilidae, Abergasilinae) fromthe gills and nasal fossae of serrasalmid fishes from the Tres Marias reservoir, upper Sao Franciscoriver, Minas Gerais State, Brazil

Brasergasilus bifurcatus sp. nov. (Copepoda, Ergasilidae, Abergasilinae) isdescribed. Specimens of the new species were collected from the gills and nasal fossae of theserrasalmid fishes, known as “piranhas”, Pygocentrus piraya (Cuvier, 1819) and “pirambebas”,Serrasalmus brandtii (Lutken, 1875).
