While TRoCA examines and reports the annual rates of congenital anomalies consistently, we do not know for sure whether any change in these rates is due to a true existence/absence of epidemics in the region, due to the technical failure of our monitoring, or due to aetiologic and environmental teratogens.
The location of these SNPs in the 5' UTR (rs17885289), second intron (rs266085), and 3' UTR (rs266093) regions of the CXCL12 gene is consistent with several possible aetiologic mechanisms for the identified association with cervical carcinoma, including alternative splicing and regulation of CXCL12 induction [91-93].
Preoperative aetiologic diagnosis based on history and physical examination may be difficult.
Livestock ticks transmit a variety of aetiologic organisms (bacteria, protozoa, rickettsiae, and viruses) and the causative agents of a number of debilitating livestock diseases (theileriosis, heartwater, Nairobi sheep disease, streptothricosis, babesiosis/piroplasmosis, and anaplasmosis).
Maternal diabetes, rubella and influenza may also be aetiologic factors, (2,5,6) and heavy alcohol consumption during pregnancy is also a recognised cause.
The dog is considered the primary reservoir of the aetiologic agent of VL, and dogs have an important role in maintaining the disease transmission cycle in urban areas because of the parasitism of their skin, regardless of the dogs clinical presentation and proximity to man (BRASIL, 2006; BRITO et al., 2014a, b).
