Voluta musica is a dioecious marine gastropod endemic of the South Caribbean. Tributyltin (TBT) and copper (Cu) are potential inducers of imposex, an endocrine disorder by which females develop a penis and/or vas deferens. The goal of this work was to determine the imposex incidence in V. musica populations from Northeastern Peninsula de Araya. For this, we selected three sites (Isla Caribe, Isla Lobos and Bajo Cuspe) and made monthly samplings of 15 snails in each site, during one year, and determined: (1) sizes; (2) sex and imposex incidence and (3) the Relative Penis Length Index (RPLI)...

The dermatophyte Microsporum canis is commonly isolated from human and animal infection. The morphogenesis of this fungus was studied during its developmental stages through the fluorescent method Fluorescein Diacetate and Ethidium Bromide. To this end, 50 microl dermatophyte suspension were transferred onto cellophane wrapping esterilized discs (2.5 cm of diameter) placed over the surface of Sabouraud dextrose agar on Petri dishes and incubated at 25 degrees C for 30 days. Every 60 minutes during the first 24 hours and every 12 hours for next 29 days, one disc was transferred onto glass slide, covered with equal volumes of freshly prepared fluorescein diacetate (FDA) and ethidium bromide (EB) solution, mounted with a coverslip and incubated in the dark for 30 minutes, at 25 degrees C...

Is part of the group of ovulatory aberrations together with in situ luteinization and syndrome of not broken luteinized folicle. The diagnosis is based in endometrial morphology and progesterone determination. The objective of this work is to analyze 30 cases of DCL that achieved pregnancy. The diagnosis was done based on low determination of progesterone in serum, biopsy of irregular or indysphase endometrium and all the factors, remaining normal of esterility...
