The Urbi et Orbi of Leishmania parasites

  • 23 May 2014
Trypanosomatids are recognised as one of the most ubiquitous groups of protozoa on Earth. Most, if not all, vertebrate and invertebrate organisms could potentially be infected by a member of the Trypanosomatidae family. Three articles published in Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz  (Cutolo et al. 2014, Samy et al. 2014, Soares et al. 2014) contributed novel information on the extensive thread of the connections established by the trypanosomatids that are the most important in public health, the members of the genus, Leishmania. Some species of Leishmania are responsible for visceral leishmaniasis (e. g., Leishmania donovani, Leishmania infantum) or cutaneous leishmaniasis…

Enter the fungus: a Fusarium species optimised for the production of silver nanoparticles.

  • 31 March 2014
This current issue of Memorias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz presents the results of collaborative work by research groups at the University of Sao Paulo (USP), Federal Univ of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) and the National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology (INMETRO). These results show how the fungus Fusarium oxysporum might be deployed to generate silver nitrate nanoparticles at higher rates (Ishida et al. 2014). This Fusarium species is an important plant pathogen that is capable of infecting many plant species, including those with agricultural relevance such as tomato, banana, cotton and oil palm (Michielse & Rep, 2009 ). Fusarium…
