leishmania (viannia) braziliensis is the prevalent species infecting patients with tegumentary leishmaniasis from mato grosso state, brazil.the frequency of leishmania (viannia) braziliensis infection among patients of mato grosso, brazil was estimated by polymerase chain reaction-pcr, dna hybridization and by isoenzyme electrophoresis. analysis of dna polymorphism was carried out using random amplified polymorphic dna-pcr (rapdpcr) with five different primers. the patients were attended from may 1997 to february 1998 at the reference ambulatory for american tegumentary leishmaniasis at júlio müller university hospital of the federa ...200616846569
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
