Abstract

Rhodnius stali infection by Trypanosoma rangeli is reported in this study for the first time. The triatomines were collected from the campus of the Federal University of Acre in Rio Branco, Acre, Brazil. The identification of T. rangeli was confirmed by multiplex polymerase chain reaction. The examinations of two specimens revealed R. stali infection by the epimastigote forms of T. rangeli. The encounter of R. stali infected by T. rangeli generates an alert for the state of Acre, since the simultaneous presence with Trypanosoma cruzi can make the differential diagnosis of Chagas disease difficult.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 18 January 2018.
All research outputs
#9,915,047
of 12,384,832 outputs
Outputs from Revista da Sociedade Brasileira de Medicina Tropical
#98
of 215 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#245,436
of 339,076 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Revista da Sociedade Brasileira de Medicina Tropical
#21
of 50 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,384,832 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 215 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.4. This one is in the 32nd percentile – i.e., 32% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 339,076 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 15th percentile – i.e., 15% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 50 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
