Featured Issue: Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz Vol.108 No.3

This is our second post in the series of blog posts on Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz that we will be posting over the next couple of days.

This issue includes "Historical trends in the epidemiology of candidaemia: analysis of an 11-year period in a tertiary care hospital in Brazil" by Wille et al. This study looks at the Candida species' effect on two different groups of patients with Candida infections, one group who was treated from 1994 to 1999 and the other group treated from 2000 to 2004. The results indicated that many patients had a previous history of cancer and were using antibiotics before infection. The results also indicated that
Candida albicans had the highest incidence rate, found in 42% of patients, and almost 2.47% of the strains were resistant to fluconazole. Research also suggested that candidaemia was prevalent among elderly patients.

This issue also includes "Climatic factors influencing triatomine occurrence in Central-West Brazil" by Pereira et al. This article looks at the Triatominae species, also commonly known as the triatomine species, in Central-West Brazil. For the study, 27 triatominae species were analyzed using the maximum entrophy method to create models for eight species. The results indicated that
Triatoma sordida and Rhodinus neglectus were the two species that were widely found throughout Central-West Brazil, and that the Central-West region of Brazil has suitable climate conditions for different triatominae species.
