Revista Cubana de Medicina Tropical , 2007,
Abstract: the objective of this report was to evaluate oral fluid and urine as optional samples for hiv-1 confirmatory test using davih-blot system (laboratorios davih, la habana, cuba), for which they were compared with their corresponding serum samples in a group of 125 individuals. in band pattern analysis, predominant antibodies in positives oral fluid and urine samples against p34, p68, gp41, gp120, were no different from their corresponding sera according to the proportion comparison test (p<0,001). relative sensitivity and specificity of this system were 100 % in oral fluid and 98, 75% and 100% in urine samples respectively. these results support optional use of oral fluid and urine that, with slight modifications in the diagnostic system, can be applied for hiv-1 antibody confirmation testing.

Revista Cubana de Medicina , 1998,
Abstract: Se estudiaron, en el período comprendido desde 1991 hasta 1996, 26 352 muestras de suero procedentes de diferentes grupos de riesgo y donantes de sangre para conocer la seroprevalencia de anticuerpos contra el virus linfotrópico de las células T humanas tipo I (HTLV-I) y como continuación de investigaciones realizadas entre 1989 y 1990. Se empleó el sistema de ELISA DAVIH-HTLV-I para el pesquisaje de anticuerpos y como prueba confirmatoria, el Western Blot DAVIH-Blot HTLV-I, ambos de Laboratorios DAVIH, Cuba. Se confirmó la presencia de anticuerpos anti HTLV-I en 10 personas y en la mayoría de ellas el estudio epidemiológico logró esclarecer la vía probable de contagio. El índice de seropositividad observado fue de 0,037 %, lo que en comparación con las tasas de seroprevalencia reportadas para el área del Caribe resulta bajo. In the period between 1991 and 1996, 26 352 serum samples from different risk groups and blood donors, were studied to know the seroprevalence of antibodies against the human T-lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I), and also as a continuation of researches carried out between 1989 and 1990. The ELISA DAVIH-HTLV-I system was used for the antibodies investigation, and as a certifying test, the Western Blot DAVIH-Blot HTLV-I was used too, both from the Cuban DAVIH Laboratories. The presence of anti HTLV-I antibodies was confirmed in 10 persons, and in most of them the epidemiologic study could elucidate the probable way of contagion. The seropositivity index observed was of 0,037 %, and is low if compared with the seroprevalence rates reported for the Caribbean area.

Abstract: Se expusieron los resultados del dise o y la evaluación del diagnosticador DAVIH VIH-2, sistema ELISA indirecto dise ado para el pesquisaje de anticuerpos al VIH-2, que utiliza en su fase sólida un péptido sintético de la proteína de envoltura gp36 del VIH-2. La evaluación del desempe o del sistema se realizó utilizando paneles de referencia de la OMS y se determinó que la sensibilidad fue 100 %, la especificidad 99,81 %, la eficacia 99,81 % y la concordancia muy buena (índice kappa= 0,978). Las muestras de suero de 959 personas con resultados indeterminados o negativos a la confirmación de anticuerpos al VIH-1 (DAVIH-Blot) se evaluaron en el sistema DAVIH VIH-2. Resultaron reactivas al sistema 24 muestras, confirmándose la presencia de anticuerpos al VIH-2 en 6 de ellas. Estos resultados permitieron sugerir la introducción de este diagnosticador en el algoritmo de diagnóstico de la infección por VIH en Cuba. The results of the design and evaluation of DAVIH VIH-2 diagnosing system, an indirect Elisa for screening of HIV-2 antibodies, which uses a HIV-2 glycoprotein gp36 synthetic peptide in its solid phase, were exposed. In the system evaluation using WHO reference panels, 100 % sensitivity, 99,81 % specificity, 99,81% efficacy and very good concordance level (kappa = 0.978) were attained. Serum samples of 959 individuals with undetermined or negative results to the HIV-1 antibodies confirmation (DAVIH blot) were evaluated by the DAVIH VIH-2 system. Twenty four samples were reactive, six of which had confirmed HIV-2 antibodies. These results allowed recommending the introduction of this diagnostic kit in the HIV infection diagnosing algorithm in Cuba.

Abstract: Annual biomass and productivity of Thalassia testudinum were determined during a year at a seagrass bed located in the Parque Nacional Morrocoy, Venezuela. Leaf, rhizome and root biomass were determined monthly, together with short-shoot density, from February 1992 to January 1993, from nine replicated core samples. Productivity was measured using the methodology by Zieman (1974) with minor modifications, and leaf turnover rate was calculated. Leaf biomass values ranged between 101.73 dry g m-2 in February and 178.11 dry g m-2 in August. Productivity ranged from 1.69 dry g m-2 d-1 in April and October to 3.30 dry g m-2 d-1 in July, showing two annual peaks: one in July and one in March. The leaf turnover rate showed the highest value in June (2.41% d-1) and the lowest in May (1.23% d-1). Sampling time differences in leaf biomass, productivity and turnover rate were statistically significant. Short- shoot density values varied between 811.10 shoots m-2 in April and 1226.08 shoots m-2 in December, but the differences were not significant along the year. These results indicated seasonal trends for leaf biomass, productivity and turnover rate of T. testudinum in the Southern Caribbean (latitude 10 N). Rev. Biol. Trop. 54(2): 329-339. Epub 2006 Jun 01. Durante un a o se determinaron mensualmente la productividad foliar, la densidad de tallos cortos y la biomasa de hojas, tallos cortos, rizomas y raíces de Thalassia testudinum, en una "pradera" localizada en el Parque Nacional Morrocoy, Venezuela. Los valores de biomasa foliar estuvieron entre 101.73 g/m2 en febrero y 178.11 g/m2 en agosto, los de productividad foliar se ubicaron entre 1.69 g/m2/d en abril y octubre y 3.30 g/m2/d en julio, mostrando dos picos anuales, uno en julio y otro en marzo. La tasa de recambio foliar mostró el mayor valor en junio (2.41%/d) y el menor en mayo (1.23%/d). Tales diferencias fueron estadísticamente significativas durante el a o para todas estas variables. La densidad de tallos cortos fluctuó entre 811.10 tallos/m2 en abril y 1 226.08 tallos/m2 en diciembre, pero las diferencias no fueron significativas a lo largo del a o. Estos resultados indicaron una tendencia estacional para la biomasa foliar, la productividad foliar y la tasa de recambio de las hojas de T. testudinum en el Caribe Sur, a 10o N de latitud.
