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
epidemiological studies on american leishmaniasis in ceará state, brazil. molecular characterization of the leishmania isolates.two methods of molecular characterization, using monoclonal antibodies and enzyme electrophoresis, were employed in the identification of 36 stocks of leishmania isolated from human and canine cases of american visceral (avl) and cutaneous (acl) leishmaniases in the northern part of ceará state, brazil. molecular homogeneous strains of leishmania donovani (chagasi) isolated from both human and canine hosts were detected in 14 municipalities. two more parasite species, l. braziliensis braziliensi ...19883256276
