The ESP/RS resident professional biologist participates in the work carried out by the team, contributing to the surveillance of visceral leishmaniasis through educational actions, social mobilization, entomological investigation and research on the vector in the inner and peridomicile, in addition to collaborating in health promotion and education activities so that the attached populations and workers of the Health Facilities, chosen as Triatomine Information Centers of the municipality are attentive and sensitized to act in the prevention and control of Chagas Disease.
Human Chagas disease is caused by the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi, acquired primarily through contact with infected excreta of triatomine insects (known as "kissing bugs").
From 2002-2010, we isolated the uncharacterized clones from humans; triatomine vectors (Panstrongylus geniculatus, Rhodnius prolixus, and Triatoma venosa insects); and sylvatic mammalian hosts (Dasypus spp.
Transmission occurs when triatomine bugs, commonly called "kissing bugs," pierce the skin to feed and leave behind parasite-infected feces that can enter the bloodstream; pregnant women can also transmit Chagas to their newborns.
Such information and knowledge may be a great help in planning bird conservation strategies and may also be applied in health sciences since Phacellodomus nests are the habitats for some triatomine species which are vectors of Chagas" disease (DI IORIO; TURIENZO, 2009; GURGEL-GONCALVES et al.
Every year, more than 1 million people die from diseases carried by mosquitoes, flies and other insects, such as triatomine bugs.
Similar assumptions have been made to compare the life-table strategies of geographically distinct strains of Culex quinquefasciatus (13) as well as for carrying-on comparisons among populations of two triatomine species on three different studies (5-7) after colonization in the standard laboratory conditions.
The parasite is transmitted by a triatomine bug, commonly called a kissing bug.
cruzi), a tropical parasitic illness commonly transmitted via triatomine bugs or orally as a food-borne mechanism through the ingestion of contaminated food/drink.
Once controlling measures against the triatomine insects are implemented, secondary mechanisms of transmission become relevant, such as blood transfusion, organ transplantation, ingestion of contaminated food and transplacental route, especially in countries where vectorial transmission does not occur.
