identification and distribution of new world leishmania species characterized by serodeme analysis using monoclonal antibodies.five hundred thirty stocks of leishmania isolated from human and domestic and wild reservoir hosts, representing a wide geographic distribution of endemic foci of american cutaneous (acl) and visceral leishmaniases (avl) were characterized and identified at species and/or subspecies levels based on their reactivity to a cross-panel of specific monoclonal antibodies using a radioimmune binding assay. this study confirms and extends our preliminary results on the high specificity of some of these ...19873826486
molecular and serological detection of tick-borne pathogens in dogs from an area endemic for leishmania infantum in mato grosso do sul, brazil.tick-borne pathogens affect a wide range of vertebrate hosts. to identify tick-borne pathogens among dogs from campo grande, ms, brazil testing seropositive for leishmania infantum (syn. l. chagasi), a serological and molecular study was conducted to detect ehrlichia canis, anaplasma platys and babesia vogeli in 60 serum and spleen samples. a confirmatory diagnosis of l. infantum based on serological and molecular assays was also performed, as was sequence alignment and phylogenetic analysis to ...201424473877

comparison of conventional methods for diagnosis of visceral leishmaniasis in children of the center-west region of brazil, sophisticated techniques currently employed for diagnosis of visceral leishmaniasis, such as polymerase chain reaction-based assays, are only available in major research centers, whereas conventional methods are still used in many areas where the disease occurs. in the state of mato grosso do sul, in the country's center-west region, visceral leishmaniasis has recently emerged in many cities, and duration of the disease, from the onset of symptoms to diagnosis, has been short. conside ...200717625737
