Facundo Garcia-Bournissen, Jaime Altcheh, Alice Panchaud, Shinya Ito
INTRODUCTION: Women with Chagas disease receiving treatment with nifurtimox are discouraged from breast feeding. Many patients who would receive treatment with nifurtimox live in extreme poverty, have limited access to resources such as clean water and baby formula and may not have safe alternatives to breast milk. AIM: We aimed to estimate, using limited available pharmacokinetics data, potential infant exposure to nifurtimox through breast milk. METHODS: Original nifurtimox plasma concentrations were obtained from published studies...

The aim of this report was to determine Chagas infection incidence in pregnant women and congenital infection of their children in a hospital of a non-endemic area. From January 1990 to February 1991 we studied: a) 729 pregnant women with the serologic techniques of indirect hemagglutination and indirect immunofluorescence; b) 38 newborns from the 62 babies of seroreactive mothers with the parasitologic microhematocrit method to diagnose the infection. The serological tests were used as an index of the transplacental passage and for the eventual post-treatment control...

Fifty-eight mice, chronically infected with different T. cruzi strains (Types II and III) were submitted to chemotherapy either with Nifurtimox (Bay 2502) or Benznidazole (Ro 7-1051). Twenty one mice were not treated and were used as infected controls. The duration of infection was from 90 to 400 days. Inocula varied from 1 x 10(4) to 5 x 10(4) blood forms. Treatment lasted for 90 days, doses being 200mg/kg/day during 4 days, followed by 50mg/kg/day for Nifurtimox and 100mg/kg/day for Benznidazole. Parasitological tests (xenodiagnosis, inoculations into baby mice and hemoculture) showed 85...
