Epidemiology of the Trypanosomatides in the Queretaro’s State. México

Epidemiology of the Trypanosomatides in the Queretaro’s State. México

Content:

Includes two research lines:
 

1.- Epidemiology of Chagas Disease in the State of Querétaro. México.
2.- Epidemiology of Leishmaniasis in the State of Querétaro. Mexico.
                                                                                                             
General purpose:

To study the prevalence of the two large Trypanosomatides (Trypanosoma cruzi and Leishmania spp.) in different areas of the State.

Until now there was a lack of epidemiological data on both endemic diseases in that State, which represent a serious public health problem in different population groups.

Similarly, it is intended to implement new diagnostic methodologies that lessen the problem of cross reactions and can be used in blood banks as a single test, this study covering all epidemiological aspects of the disease such as seroprevalence studies in rural communities, urban, pediatric and pregnant women, entomological studies, studies of wild and synanthropic reservoirs and clinical studies of reactive populations.

With these data we will obtain a wide epidemiological information of these two genus of Trypanosomatides of great importance in the Public Health in the State.
