[results of montenegro's reaction in patients with mucocutaneous leishmaniasis, from espírito santo state].the authors analysed the results of montenegro test in 402 patients with mucocutaneous leishmaniasis from espírito santo state, where the leishmania braziliensis braziliensis has been isolated from humans cases and dogs. the test was positive in 371 cases (92.2%) before treatment. the montenegro test given during or after treatment changed the results in 17 of 20 negative cases. the remaining 3 cases and 9 which changed the results had positives biopsies. it was demonstrated again the efficiency ...19911668537

[participation of the dog in the cycle of transmission of cutaneous leishmaniasis in the municipality of viana, state of espirito santo, brazil].in an endemic area of cutaneous leishmaniasis in the viana municipality, espírito santo state, an investigation was performed on natural hosts of leishmania among domestic animals, trying to correlate the presence of infected animals with the occurrence of the disease in humans. within a three weeks period 186 dogs were examined and 32 (17.2%) were found infected. eleven new cases of cutaneous leishmaniasis were recorded during one year, among people living in the endemic area. a close relations ...19863586998
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

distribution of sand flies (diptera: psychodidae) at different altitudes in an endemic region of american cutaneous leishmaniasis in the state of espírito santo, brazil.the involvement of different sand fly species in the transmission of american cutaneous leishmaniasis (acl) at different altitudes was evaluated in the municipality of afonso cláudio in the state of espírito santo, brazil, from november 1995 to february 1997. cdc light traps and shannon traps baited with human volunteers were hung simultaneously at three altitudes of a river valley: (a) 650-750 m in an area of active acl transmission; (b) 750-850 m in a transitional area; and (c) 850-950 m in an ...200111784923
epidemiological and clinical features of leishmania (viannia) braziliensis american cutaneous and mucocutaneous leishmaniasis in the state of espírito santo, brazil.between 1985 and 2000, epidemiological surveys of the american tegumentary leishmaniasis (atl) were carried out in several rural and urban communities in espírito santo, brazil. a total of 100 stocks of leishmania (comprising isolates from both human and canine hosts with atl) were identified by two methods of molecular characterization, using specific monoclonal antibodies and multilocus enzyme electrophoresis. parasite isolates from 19 municipalities were found to belong to the same zymodeme a ...200315049080
survey of natural infection by leishmania in sand fly species collected in southeastern this study, we sought to identify sand fly vectors of the leishmania species that circulate in distinct eco-epidemiological disease-endemic rural areas within the espírito santo state in southeastern brazil. pcr amplification of a conserved region of the minicircle kdna was used to estimate infection rates in field-captured, peridomestic female sand flies. only 13 of the 1689 female sand fly specimens (0.77%) actually contained leishmania dna. leishmania braziliensis infections were found in ...201020346478
sand fly fauna (diptera: psychodidae) from the goytacazes national forest and surrounding areas of southeastern brazil.most studies of the sand fly fauna in southeastern brazil are conducted in the peridomiciliary environment of leishmaniasis endemic regions. therefore, to increase the knowledge about diversity and richness of sand fly conservation areas, we describe here the sand fly fauna from the national forest of goytacazes (nfg), state of espírito santo, brazil, and its surroundings areas. we also used sand fly fauna records from eight conservations units within the state of espírito santo to understand th ...201526047181
