Mayaro virus disease: an emerging mosquito-borne zoonosis in tropical South America. (1/1174)

This report describes the clinical, laboratory, and epidemiological findings on 27 cases of Mayaro virus (MV) disease, an emerging mosquito-borne viral illness that is endemic in rural areas of tropical South America. MV disease is a nonfatal, dengue-like illness characterized by fever, chills, headache, eye pain, generalized myalgia, arthralgia, diarrhea, vomiting, and rash of 3-5 days' duration. Severe joint pain is a prominent feature of this illness; the arthralgia sometimes persists for months and can be quite incapacitating. Cases of two visitors from the United States, who developed MV disease during visits to eastern Peru, are reported. MV disease and dengue are difficult to differentiate clinically.  (+info)

Influence of prenatal iron and zinc supplements on supplemental iron absorption, red blood cell iron incorporation, and iron status in pregnant Peruvian women. (2/1174)

BACKGROUND: It is estimated that 60% of pregnant women worldwide are anemic. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to examine the influence of iron status on iron absorption during pregnancy by measuring supplemental iron absorption, red blood cell iron incorporation, and iron status in pregnant women. DESIGN: Subjects were 45 pregnant Peruvian women (33+/-1 wk gestation), of whom 28 received daily prenatal supplements containing 60 mg Fe and 250 microg folate without (Fe group, n = 14) or with (Fe+Zn group, n = 14) 15 mg Zn, which were were consumed from week 10 to 24 of gestation until delivery. The remaining 17 women (control) received no prenatal supplementation. Iron status indicators and isotopes were measured in maternal blood collected 2 wk postdosing with oral (57Fe) and intravenous (58Fe) stable iron isotopes. RESULTS: Maternal serum ferritin and folate concentrations were significantly influenced by supplementation (P < 0.05). Serum iron was also significantly higher in the Fe than in the Fe+Zn (P < 0.03) or control (P < 0.001) groups. However, the supplemented groups had significantly lower serum zinc concentrations than the control group (8.4+/-2.3 and 10.9+/-1.8 micromol/L, respectively, P < 0.01). Although percentage iron absorption was inversely related to maternal serum ferritin concentrations (P = 0.036), this effect was limited and percentage iron absorption did not differ significantly between groups. CONCLUSIONS: Because absorption of nonheme iron was not substantially greater in pregnant women with depleted iron reserves, prenatal iron supplementation is important for meeting iron requirements during pregnancy.  (+info)

An operational evaluation of the Community Oral Rehydration Units in Peru. (3/1174)

Since 1984, in Latin America donor agencies and national governments have extensively supported the implementation of the Community Oral Rehydration Units (CORUs) in an attempt to increase the access to oral rehydration therapy and improve the case management of diarrhoea at the community level. This study surveyed 40 CORUs in two regions of Peru to assess their operation, the number of patients with diarrhoea attended, and the knowledge of volunteers in charge. The results show that CORUs were mainly implemented close to existing health centres; the median of case load was 2.0 patients in the preceding month; and the volunteers' knowledge of case management was principally deficient in the diagnosis of hydration status, dietary management and in preventive measures. This lack of knowledge was replicated by professionals at the supervising health centres. Despite the fact that CORUs have been functioning for around four years, they exhibit numerous deficiencies which prevent them from fulfilling their objectives. A global review of the whole CORU strategy is called for.  (+info)

Acute childhood diarrhoea and maternal time allocation in the northern central Sierra of Peru. (4/1174)

Interventions to improve child health depend, at least implicitly, on changing maternal knowledge and behaviour and a reallocation of maternal time. There have been few studies, however, of the time cost involved in the adoption of new health technologies and even fewer that examine changes in maternal activities in response to child illness. The present study examines maternal daytime activities and investigates changes that occur when children are ill. We examine the impact of acute childhood diarrhoea episodes on the activity patterns of the mother/caretaker in this setting. The results show that mothers alter their usual activity patterns only slightly in response to acute diarrhoea episodes in their children. They continue to perform the same variety of activities as when the children are healthy, although they are more likely to perform them with the child 'carried' on their back. There is some indication that diarrhoea perceived to be more severe did result in the mother acting as caretaker more frequently. These findings have important implications for health interventions that depend on changing the amount of maternal or caretaker time spent for child health technologies, but the implications may vary depending on the reasons for the observed lack of changes in caretaker activities.  (+info)

The privatization of health care in three Latin American social security systems. (5/1174)

Most Latin American social security institutes are direct providers of medical care services to their beneficiaries. As many of the institutes have developed serious financial problems over the course of the last decade and a half, they have come under increasing attack for (a) exacerbating inequalities in access to and use of health care, (b) further heightening the geographic overconcentration of services, (c) focusing a disproportionate amount of resources on high technology, curative care to the near total exclusion of primary health care, and (d) being administratively top heavy and, more generally, inefficient. In the past few years, many Latin American countries have begun searching for methods to ameliorate these problems. This paper analyzes three recent efforts, all of which involve some degree of privatization: (1) El Salvador's partial privatization of specialty physician outpatient consultations, (2) Peru's minor surgery and its decentralized ambulatory care programme, and (3) Nicaragua's "administrative services only' approach wherein social security beneficiaries choose to join a certified public or private provider organization for one year, and, on behalf of the individual, social security pays the organization a fixed, annual, per capita fee to provide all health care for the enrollee. The paper also identifies political and technical considerations, as well as health care market characteristics that have shaped these efforts and that condition their likelihood of success, including: the size, composition, level of capacity utilization, degree of organization and geographic distribution of private sector resources; relative prices in the private vis-a-vis the public sector; and the size and nature of the private health insurance market. Other Latin American countries would do well to examine these factors and characteristics before embarking on efforts to reform their own social security health care delivery systems.  (+info)

Enteropathogens and other factors associated with severe disease in children with acute watery diarrhea in Lima, Peru. (6/1174)

To evaluate enteropathogens and other factors associated with severe disease in children with diarrhea, 381 children <5 years of age with diarrhea and moderate to severe dehydration (in-patients) and 381 age-, sex-, and date-of-visit-matched children with mild diarrhea (out-patients) presenting to a hospital in Peru, were studied. Rotavirus was detected in 52% of the in-patients and 35% of the out-patients (odds ratio [OR]=2.3, 95% confidence interval [95% CI]= 1.6-3.2); 95% of the rotaviruses among in-patients were of serotypes G1-G4. The risk of severe diarrhea was particularly great in children who were not exclusively breast-fed in early infancy and who also lacked piped water in their homes (for children with both characteristics OR=6.8, 95% CI=3.6-12.8). The high prevalence of rotavirus and its association with severe diarrhea underscores the need for rotavirus vaccines. Interventions to educate mothers and improve access to safe water should augment the impact of rotavirus vaccines in preventing severe diarrhea.  (+info)

Malaria reemergence in the Peruvian Amazon region. (7/1174)

Epidemic malaria has rapidly emerged in Loreto Department, in the Peruvian Amazon region. Peru reports the second highest number of malaria cases in South America (after Brazil), most from Loreto. From 1992 to 1997, malaria increased 50-fold in Loreto but only fourfold in Peru. Plasmodium falciparum infection, which has increased at a faster rate than P. vivax infection in the last 3 years, became the dominant Plasmodium infection in the highest transmission areas in the 1997 rainy season. The vector Anopheles darlingi has also increased during this epidemic in Loreto. Moreover, chloroquine and pyrimethamine-sulfadoxine drug-resistant P. falciparum strains have emerged, which require development of efficacious focal drug treatment schemes.  (+info)

Fish and mammals in the economy of an ancient Peruvian kingdom. (8/1174)

Fish and mammal bones from the coastal site of Cerro Azul, Peru shed light on economic specialization just before the Inca conquest of A. D. 1470. The site devoted itself to procuring anchovies and sardines in quantity for shipment to agricultural communities. These small fish were dried, stored, and eventually transported inland via caravans of pack llamas. Cerro Azul itself did not raise llamas but obtained charqui (or dried meat) as well as occasional whole adult animals from the caravans. Guinea pigs were locally raised. Some 20 species of larger fish were caught by using nets; the more prestigious varieties of these show up mainly in residential compounds occupied by elite families.  (+info)

Mirko Zimic of Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia in Peru will develop a simple, low-cost lung ultrasound device that can automatically diagnose bacterial pneumonia and measure nutritional status in children in low-resource settings. They have developed an algorithm to detect lung infiltrates from digital ultrasound images as evidence of pneumonia in children, and have built a prototype device, which comprises an ultrasound probe connected to a laptop or smartphone for realtime analysis of the images. Visible and audio alerts are used to notify the technician of suspect regions. They will develop an additional algorithm to automatically measure anatomical parameters including rib diameter and skin thickness for predicting levels of malnutrition, and test it in a hospital in Peru. Ultimately, this will be incorporated into the ultrasound device so that both pneumonia and malnutrition can be easily diagnosed together by non-specialized health care workers.. ...

A cross-sectional study was conducted in the Peruvian Amazon to test the hypothesis that a reservoir of asymptomatic malaria parasitemic patients would form the basis for continuing malaria endemicity in the region. Active surveillance yielded a Plasmodium spp. slide-positive prevalence of 4.2% (43 of 1,023) and a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-positive prevalence of 17.6% (144 of 819). Plasmodium vivax prevalence was 2.9% and 14.2% while Plasmodium falciparum prevalence was 1.3% and 2.6% by microscopy and PCR, respectively. Approximately two-thirds of slide-positive and one-fourth of PCR-positive people were symptomatic. Anemia was associated with slide positivity (P < 0.001) and PCR positivity for P. falciparum (P = 0.003). Sensitivity of field microscopy and agreement between field and reference laboratory microscopists were low, arguing for using PCR for epidemiologic investigation and malaria control. While these data confirm recent findings from the Brazilian Amazon suggesting that sufficient

Malaria burden severely affects the population living in the Peruvian Amazon, which is also affected by low-living conditions. Currently, the Peruvian government has launched the Malaria Elimination program in the Amazon and requires evidence-based research to improve its program. UNAP is the main university in the Peruvian Amazon and is looking to become a key role player on the development of the region by supporting this elimination initiative. The first steps of supporting UNAP becoming more active on research were initiated through a triangular collaboration between UNAP, UPCH and UAntwerp in 2016 (VLIR SI). Here by, we intend to continue and strengthen this collaboration by actively developing educational and research capacities on epidemiology, data analysis and population genetics at UNAP. Constant training through students/professors exchange, courses given by UAntwerp/UPCH professors at UNAP and joint research related to malaria elimination tools encircle the strategy proposed on this ...

In partnership with The Unions Lima office and the National Tuberculosis Programme (NTP) of the Peruvian Ministry of Health, TREAT TB completed an operational research course in Peru based on the SORT IT model. The course consisted of three modules between September 2015 and September 2016 and aimed to enable NTP staff members to develop the skills needed to conduct OR studies and generate evidence to help control TB in Peru and other high-burden countries.. TB remains a serious threat to public health in Peru. Moreover, the burden of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) cases is a threat to tuberculosis control. Because the Peruvian NTP has a sophisticated MDR-TB surveillance and data collection system, TREAT TB aimed to build on the progress Peru already achieved by equipping key NTP staff members with OR skills to enable them to use the information collected to strengthen TB control activities in the country.. The course consisted of three five-day modules: Developing a Research ...

As of July 7, 10,772 people had died of COVID 19 infection in Peru, which is the 8th most severely affected country in the world. The actual toll is probably far greater, especially in Perus Amazonian region. Indigenous inhabitants there, isolated from medical care, suffer from the pandemic and from an environment poisoned by oil extraction.. Canadian oil company Frontera Energy had operated an oxygen-producing plant at in Shiviyacu, located near Perus northern border with Ecuador. At a meeting June 26 with government officials, the company announced it would shut the plant down. Represented at the meeting was PetroPeru, the state -owned company whose NorPeruano pipeline conveys Frontier Energys crude oil to refineries on the Pacific coast.. Perus metallurgical and mining industries produce and use most of the oxygen used in Peru. But indigenous communities are apparently seeking that industrial oxygen be made available for treating COVID 19 infection. They denounced Frontera Energys ...
Peruvian Ribereño Spanish or Peruvian Coastal Spanish is the form of the Spanish language spoken in the coastal region of Peru. The Spanish spoken in Coastal Peru has four characteristic forms today: the original one, that of the inhabitants of Lima (known as limeños) near the Pacific coast and parts south, (formerly from the old section of the city from where it spread to the entire coastal region); the inland immigrant sociolect (more influenced by Andean languages); the Northern, in Trujillo, Chiclayo or Piura; and the Southern. The majority of Peruvians speak Peruvian Coast Spanish, as Peruvian Coast Spanish is the standard dialect of Spanish in Peru. Between 1535 and 1739, Lima was the capital of the Spanish Empire in South America, from where Hispanic culture spread, and its speech became the purest[clarification needed] since it was the home of the famous University of San Marcos of Lima. Also, it was the city that had the highest number of titles of nobility from Castile outside of ...

This thesis draws on womens lived experience as recipients of state programmes and services aimed at poor mothers to explore contradictions in processes of development and social inclusion. Womens ambivalent responses to these programmes raise important questions, first of all, about being the targeted object and what for poor mothers means to those so categorised, and secondly, about the act of targeting, and how it can serve both as a constraint and as a resource.. State concern with chronic child malnutrition serves as the entrance point to my research, carried out in rural Ayacucho, Peru, from October 2012 to November 2013. This project was motivated by concerns regarding the medicalisation of food scarcity, as malnutrition, and how this approach spread to further interventions by the state to shape parenting in the rural Andes. I examine three programmes: (1.) mothers interactions with the local public health centre, which is at the forefront of the states effort to reduce chronic ...
Peru [http://www.peru.info] is a country in South America, situated on the western side of that continent, facing the South Pacific Ocean and straddling part of the Andes mountain range that runs the length of South America. Peru is bordered by Ecuador and Colombia to the north, Brazil and Bolivia to the east, and Chile to the south. Peru is a country that has a diversity and wealth not common in the world. The main attractions are their archaeological patrimony of pre-Columbian cultures and the center of Incas Empire, their gastronomy, their colonial architecture (has imposing colonial constructions) and their natural resources (a paradise for the ecological tourism).

The main attractions are their archaeological patrimony of pre-Columbian cultures and the center of Incas Empire, their gastronomy, their colonial architecture (has imposing colonial constructions) and their natural resources (a paradise for the ecological tourism).
5.1 percent of residents in Perus capital of Lima abused cocaine in 2013, according to a report by a drug monitoring organization. 8.9 percent of the citys residents used marijuana.. Across the entire country, 2.4 percent of the population aged 12 to 65 abused cocaine in Peru, an increase of over 60 percent from the 1.5 percent who used cocaine in 2010. Marijuana use in Peru also increased during that time period, from 5.6 percent to 7.5 percent.. (Marijuana prices by country.).

Data and research on public governance including budgeting, public expenditure, public-private partnerships (PPPs), public sector innovation, public employment and public finances., The economic performance of Peru in recent times has been impressive. There is now a transition underway as commodity prices fall, and the key challenge for Peru is how to improve productivity and maintain this growth trajectory. Peru is a territorially diverse country and addressing these challenges will require policies that are designed for the specific needs of different cities and regions. The importance of regional policies is particularly important for the case of Peru. Within the OECD only four countries have a larger land mass. The physical geography of the country is shaped by a thin coastal region, the Andes and the Amazon forest in the interior. These different areas are not well connected and have vastly different levels of service provision and infrastructure. The report sets out how regional policies can be
Ancient Peru was the seat of several prominent Andean civilizations, most notably that of the Incas whose empire was captured by Spanish conquistadors in 1533. Peru declared its independence in 1821, and remaining Spanish forces were defeated in 1824. After a dozen years of military rule, Peru returned to democratic leadership in 1980, but experienced economic problems and the growth of a violent insurgency. President Alberto FUJIMORIs election in 1990 ushered in a decade that saw a dramatic turnaround in the economy and significant progress in curtailing guerrilla activity. Nevertheless, the presidents increasing reliance on authoritarian measures and an economic slump in the late 1990s generated mounting dissatisfaction with his regime, which led to his resignation in 2000. A caretaker government oversaw a new election in the spring of 2001, which installed Alejandro TOLEDO Manrique as the new head of government - Perus first democratically elected president of indigenous ethnicity.

Miss Peru Universe 2012 has made a public apology to the Peruvian gay rights movement for a series of anti-gay jibes.. Beauty queen Cindy Mejia, Miss Peru 2012, recently stated that god wouldnt allow her to have a gay son.. She also stated that boys only turn gay because of their father being absent, or because they have been raped or are too close to their mother and sisters.. Her comments caused an uproar in the Peruvian media especially as Mejia initially said her statements were taken out of context and distorted, which turned out to be false when the whole recording of the interview was published online.. Twitter users throughout Peru have decided to crown Mejia with the title Miss Homophobia using the Twitter hashtag #Misshomofobia (Spanish).. A public debate is ensuing whether the beauty queen should lose her crown for her homophobic statements.. Yesterday Mejia personally delivered a public letter of apology to the Peruvian LGBT rights group - Movimiento Homosexual de Lima ...
Provenance analysis of Pleistocene terrace deposits, together with modern sediments from the same streams, from four catchments draining the western margin of the Andes in Peru is used to infer changes in erosion patterns between the past and the present period by matching detrital zircon ages with crystallization ages of source rocks. Age populations suggest major changes in sediment provenance through the past 100 k.y. At present, sediment sources are mainly located along the steep middle reaches of the rivers, whereas during the Pleistocene, sources were additionally located in the low-relief headwaters of these catchments. These shifts in the loci of erosion are interpreted to reflect changes in precipitation patterns, where periods of stronger precipitation on the Altiplano allowed the entrainment of material from the low-relief plateau in the past. In contrast, modern precipitation patterns result in negligible erosion rates on the Altiplano, and the site of material entrainment shifts to ...

A month after womens groups blew the whistle on a Peruvian government sterilization program, reports of women being forced or bribed to submit to tubal ligations continue. Government health workers reportedly offered gifts, including food and clothing, to poor women for undergoing tubal ligation. Those who survive the surgery are sent away with gifts of clothes and food, however, fatal complications sometimes arise for women who cannot afford medical treatment. A neighbor of Magna Alva, who died ten days after the surgery, said When you dont have anything and they offer you clothes and food for your kids, then finally you agree to do it …. Magna told them that her husband was against the idea, but they told her, ïDont worry, we can do it right now, and tonight you will be back home cooking and your husband will never realize what happened. The Peruvian government issued quotas for sterilizations in 1995 in an effort to curb the growing population and poverty in exchange for promotions ...
In 2009, the United States Naval Medical Research Unit 6 in Lima, Peru, with support from the Peruvian Ministry of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, and the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center in Silver Springs, implemented and has since maintained an active population-based household cohort study for ILI as a complement to the countrys routine passive surveillance system.6 The project is driven by the need to collect detailed epidemiological data to elucidate the complex transmission dynamics of influenza and other ILIs, which are major causes of morbidity and mortality in Peru. Five geographically distinct regions of Peru were selected to represent the countrys diverse ecological niches (urban coastal desert, northern and southern tropical rainforest, dry tropical forest, and Andean highlands). Over 2500 households comprising more than 10 000 people were then selected randomly from a community geo-referenced census. The study protocol was approved by the ...
The final rule will be available on Monday, September 14 at http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=APHIS-2015-0005. Summary: We are amending the fruits and vegetable regulations to allow citrus fruit from the entire country of Peru to be imported into the continental United States. Currently, the regulations allow the importation of citrus fruit to the United States from five approved citrus-producing zones in Peru, subject to a systems approach. However, based on the findings of a pest list and commodity import evaluation document, we have determined that this systems approach also mitigates the plant pest risk associated with citrus fruit produced in all other areas of Peru. This action will allow the importation of citrus fruit from the entire country of Peru while continuing to provide protection against the introduction of plant pests into the continental United States.. ...

Although most of the organs found in Peru today were imported from Europe during the hundred years that followed independence and the establishment of the Republic (1821), only a few of this large and unique collection have been studied and evaluated. These instruments attest to a vibrant and varied use of the organ in ecclesiastical contexts that continues a long and consistent tradition, well documented from the beginnings of the viceregal era in 1535. Among the surviving nineteenth-century organs in Peru, those built by the Italian immigrant Innocente Foglia stand out because they appear to be the only organs constructed in Peru during this period of the Republic. All the Foglia organs known at present are in prominent churches in major cities and exhibit an amalgamation of various national styles, both Romantic and pre-Romantic. Innocente Foglia is also known to have repaired and restored many of the imported European organs in Peru. Basic biographical information about Foglia, recently ...

Peru will soon see its first sustainable hospital thanks to founder of the Yantaló Peru Foundation: Luis Vasquez.. In 2005, his nonprofit organization broke ground on the Adelina Soplin Yantaló Clinic & International Diagnostic Center. Named after Vasquezs late mother, the clinic will cover 4,220 square meters of land in the Peruvian Amazon community of Yantaló.. The hospital will house 16 patient rooms, four surgeries, 10 outpatient rooms, three digital X-ray units, a fully equipped laboratory, cafeteria, and meeting rooms. Services include female health, neonatology, pediatrics, molecular diagnostics, and genetics.. With limited resources in the jungle, all of the 30 workers selected to construct the green facility, scheduled for completion in the third quarter of this year, are local and have been trained in techniques not familiar to the region, like drywall.. Our goal is to start a construction company when we finish this project, Vasquez says. This is the time to do it. Theres a ...
The governments of Peru and Ecuador signed an agreement with the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria to help guarantee comprehensive quality of care to people living with HIV, including access to antiretrovirals (ARVs). Current methods of surveillance are inadequate in estimating the true burden of disease. Broad access to ARVs in countries without regular drug resistance testing can also cause rapid development of ARV resistance. By establishing a more sophisticated surveillance system able to capture HIV incidence, prevalence, patterns of HIV resistance, and genetic variability of viral strains, Peru and Ecuador will be better equipped to monitor the HIV epidemic, develop personalized prevention and control measures, and track patterns of HIV resistance among infected patients. This study will estimate the incidence of HIV, syphilis, and herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2) among MSM in Peru and Ecuador, as well as examine the number and variability of ARV-resistant HIV ...

In Peru, as in many developing countries, charcoal is an important source of fuel. We examine the commercial charcoal commodity chain from its production in Ucayali, in the Peruvian Amazon, to its sale in the national market. Using a mixed-methods approach, we look at the actors involved in the commodity chain and their relationships, including the distribution of benefits along the chain. We outline the obstacles and opportunities for a more equitable charcoal supply chain within a multi-level governance context. The results show that charcoal provides an important livelihood for most of the actors along the supply chain, including rural poor and women. We find that the decentralisation process in Peru has implications for the formalisation of charcoal supply chains, a traditionally informal, particularly related to multi-level institutional obstacles to equitable commerce. This results in inequity in the supply chain, which persecutes the poorest participants and supports the most powerful ...
Numerous studies have utilized craniometric data to explore the roles of genetic diversity and environment in human cranial shape variation. Peru is a particularly interesting region to examine cranial variation due to the wide variety of high and low altitude ecological zones, which in combination with rugged terrain have created isolated populations with vastly different physiological adaptations. This study examines seven samples from throughout Peru in an effort to understand the contributions of environmental adaptation and genetic relatedness to craniofacial variation at a regional scale. Morphological variation was investigated using a canonical discriminant analysis and Mahalanobis D2 analysis. Results indicate that all groups are significantly different from one another with the closest relationship between Yauyos and Jahuay, two sites that are located geographically close in central Peru but in very different ecozones. The relationship between latitude/longitude and face shape was also ...

This red howler monkey extends west from the lower Rio Madeira (left bank) and the Rio Aripuanã across the basin of the Rio Purus to the Rios Juruá and Envira, as postulated by Gregorin (2006). It occurs in northern Rondônia, but the southern limits to its range in Brazil are unclear. It is not clear whether it is the form in north-west Bolivia and far south-eastern Peru in the basins of the upper Purus, Madre de Dios and Tampopata. According to Anderson (1997), only Alouatta sara occurs in Bolivia. Aquino and Encarnacion (1994a) did not consider subspecies or any species other than A. seniculus. Red howlers occur throughout the Peruvian Amazon from the Río Inamabari in the far south-east, along the Rio Urubamba, through the Pachitea to the right (east) bank of the Rio Huallaga, north accompanying the Cordillera to cross the Río Marañón, extending into Ecuador along the Río Santiago (left bank).

The main vector in the Andean region is R. prolixus, principally in Venezuela and Colombia where it is mainly associated with the foothills of the Andes and adjacent plains (Llanos). R. prolixus is a close relative of the Amazon species R. robustus,9394 and it seems probable that R. prolixus represents a lineage that adapted to exploit drier environments north of the Amazon, thereby predisposing it to be an efficient invader of domestic environments. However, unlike T. infestans, R. prolixus has widespread sylvatic foci that pose the threat of reinvasion of houses postintervention; this was demonstrated by a population genetics study comparing domestic and sylvatic samples in Venezuela40 and by the identification of palm trees as a risk factor to domestic infestations.13 However, previous studies have suggested that the risk of invasion by sylvatic R. prolixus is unlikely.7,95 T. dimidia- ta is implicated in transmission in Colombia and Ecuador. However, there is strong evidence to suggest that ...
In this study, the ovaries of 27 wild collared peccaries (Tayassu tajacu) fromthe Amazonian region of northeastern Peru were examined macroscopically and microscopically, and expression of major steroidogenic enzymes was detected by immunohistochemistry. Our observations suggest a mean ovulation rate of 2.3 +/- 0.6 follicles and a low rate of reproductive wastage (0.4 +/- 0.6 oocytes or embryos per pregnancy). The collared peccary seems to exhibit follicular waves involving the synchronous growth of a cohort of follicles, several of which seem to attain selection. The presence of antral follicles in pregnant females suggests that follicular turnover continues during pregnancy. In cyclic animals, corpora lutea were characterised by the presence of distinct large and small luteal cell populations. The luteal volume in pregnant females was larger than that recorded for non-pregnant females. Through immunohistochemistry, it was observed that luteal cells from active corpora lutea exhibit intensive 3 ...
Antibiotic resistance mediated by bacterial production of extended‐spectrum beta‐lactamase (ESBL) is a global threat to public health. ESBL resistance is most commonly hospital‐acquired; however, infections acquired outside of hospital settings have raised concerns over the role of livestock and wildlife in the zoonotic spread of ESBL‐producing bacteria. Only limited data are available on the circulation of ESBL‐producing bacteria in animals. Here, we report ESBL‐producing Escherichia coli in wild common vampire bats Desmodus rotundus and livestock near Lima, Peru. Molecular analyses revealed that most of this resistance resulted from the expression of blaCTX‐M‐15 genes carried by plasmids, which are disseminating worldwide in hospital settings and have also been observed in healthy children of Peru. Multilocus sequence typing showed a diverse pool of E. coli strains carrying this resistance that were not always host species‐specific, suggesting sharing of strains between ...
A year-long community-based study of diarrhoeal diseases was conducted in Canto Grande, a periurban community in Lima, Peru. In 109 (34%) houses out of 323 that were visited, at least one individual was detected with shigellosis. The frequency of the 161 shigella isolates obtained was as follows: 117 S. flexneri (73%), 21 S. boydii (13%), 15 S. dysenteriae (9%), and 8 S. sonnei (5%). Using a non-radioactive ipaH gene probe as a molecular epidemiological tool, a total of 41 S. flexneri strains were shown to be distributed in 25 intra-family comparisons by pairs (icp). Further subdivision, based on a comparison of the serotype, plasmid profile, antibiotic resistances and ipaH hybridization patterns indicated that Group I, with 11 icp (44%), had strains that were identical. Group II with 8 icp (32%), had strains that were different and Group III with 6 icp (24%), had strains with the same serotype and identical ipaH profiles but with differences in other markers. This data indicates that a diversity of
The discovery of three new species of Enyalioides from the tropical Andes in Ecuador and northern Peru is reported. Enyalioides altotambo sp. n. occurs in northwestern Ecuador and differs from other species of Enyalioides in having dorsal scales that are both smooth and homogeneous in size, a brown iris, and in lacking enlarged, circular and keeled scales on the flanks. Enyalioides anisolepis sp. n. occurs on the Amazonian slopes of the Andes in southern Ecuador and northern Peru and can be distinguished from other species of Enyalioides by its scattered, projecting large scales on the dorsum, flanks, and hind limbs, as well as a well-developed vertebral crest, with the vertebrals on the neck at least three times higher than those between the hind limbs. Enyalioides sophiarothschildae sp. n. is from the Amazonian slopes of the Cordillera Central in northeastern Peru; it differs from other species of Enyalioides in having caudal scales that are relatively homogeneous in size on each caudal segment, a
Extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB) can be cured in HIV-negative patients through outpatient treatment, even in those who have received multiple prior courses of therapy for tuberculosis, according to Carole Mitnick of Harvard Medical School and her collaborators at several institutions in Boston and also in Lima, Peru. Outcomes among the XDR-TB patients in Peru were better than outcomes reported for similar patients from Europe, the United States, and Korea, where cure was achieved in fewer than half of them. The Peruvian patients had
Peru is a middle-income country that has seen an economic boom over the last decade; however, it still faces enormous development challenges. A huge development gap exists between urban and rural areas, which is mirrored in regional differences between the coastal regions and the highland and Amazon regions. The national development strategy, Plan Bicentenario, aims to reduce poverty; improve education, health, water and sanitation, and governmental effectiveness; increase growth, investment, formal employment and electricity production; reduce deforestation; and extend irrigation, among other things. Perus agricultural sector is divided in to modern, traditional, internal and subsistence-oriented subsectors. Land tenure is fragmented, while competitiveness, profits and investments are low. Barley, cassava, maize, potatoes, rice, wheat, asparagus, onions, grapes, mangoes, plantains, coffee and sugarcane are the most important crops in terms of cultivated area, production quantities and value. ...
This is GLIRICIDIA SEPIUM and while its a native to Mexico, Central America and northern South America, its also one of the most widely planted of all trees in the worlds tropics -- explaining why it has a world of common names, including the English ones Quick-Stick and Cacao Shade. Often English speakers call it by one of its Spanish names, Madre de Cacao.. The reason this tree is planted so often is that its one of the most useful and welcome of all tropical trees. Cut a leg-long stick of it, shove it into the ground, and it grows into a new tree in a single season. Place many sticks in a row and in a few months you have a living fence. Livestock love eating its leafy branches, and its good for them, having a crude protein content of 18-30% and a high digestibility. In Spanish sometimes the tree is called Mata Ratón, or Mouse Killer, because leaves and bark mixed with ground corn can be used as a rodenticide. You can read a great deal about this very multipurpose tree here. Many ...
Rome, 28 April 2021. Perus National Agrarian Health Service (SENASA) announced a national phytosanitary emergency on April 11 after confirming Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense Tropical Race 4 (Fusarium TR4) on a banana farm in Peru. Quarantine and emergency response actions are underway to prevent a devastating disease to Musa cavendish banana from spreading to other banana producing areas. While eradication is impossible, prevention and containment are key actions for managing the spread of the disease. Surveillance, diagnosis of the affected property, destruction of affected plants, and quarantine activities are operational according to the national containment plan.
