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
identification and biological characterization of leishmania (viannia) guyanensis isolated from a patient with tegumentary leishmaniasis in goiás, a nonendemic area for this species in brazil.the aim of this study was to characterize clinical field isolates of leishmania spp. obtained from patients with american tegumentary leishmaniasis (atl) who live in goiás state, brazil. the presumed areas of infection were in goiás, tocantins, and pará states. three isolates of parasites were identified as l. (viannia) braziliensis and one as l. (v.) guyanensis. the in vitro growth profiles were found to be similar for all parasites. nevertheless, in c57bl/6 mice, l. (v.) guyanensis infection w ...201526583102
