[cruorifilaria tuberocauda (nematoda: filarioidea) in venezuelan capybaras].four filariae are known to parasitize the capybara "hydrochoerus hydrochaeris" namely the "cruorifilaria tuberocauda", eberhard, morales & orihel (1976). the "dipetalonema (alafilaria) hydrochoerus", yates (1983), and two "mansonella" recently described by eberhard, campo-aasen & orihel (1983), "mansonella longicapita" and "mansonella rotundicapita". in this study we describe the adult parasites and the microfilaria of the "cruorifilaria tuberocauda" (nematoda, filarioidea), eberhard, morales & ...19863528705
brucella spp. from the capybara (hydrochaeris hydrochaeris) in venezuela: serologic studies and metabolic characterization of isolates.a bacteriological and serological study of 201 wild capybara from the llanos, state of apure, venezuela was made to isolate brucella from spleen and lymph node tissues and determine the role of this rodent as a reservoir of this bacteria. twenty-three isolations were made, eight were identified as b. abortus and 15 as b. suis by oxidative metabolic techniques. a poly b antigen in immunodiffusion in gel test was compared with other serologic tests. there was good correlation and 58% of sera were ...19836417349
molecular profiles of venezuelan isolates of trypanosoma sp. by random amplified polymorphic dna method.nine trypanosoma sp. venezuelan isolates, initially presumed to be t. evansi, were collected from three different hosts, capybara (apure state), horse (apure state) and donkey (guarico state) and compared by the random amplification polymorphic dna technique (rapd). thirty-one to 46 reproducible fragments were obtained with 12 of the 40 primers that were used. most of the primers detected molecular profiles with few polymorphisms between the seven horse, capybara and donkey isolates. quantitativ ...200919286320
