leishmaniasis in central and southern tunisia: current geographical distribution of zymodemes.the authors report the identification of leishmania strains isolated from the centre and the south of tunisia. 266 strains were isolated between 1998 and 2006 from human (n=221 strains) and dogs (n=45 strains) hosts. the isoenzymatic identification exhibits the presence of in total five zymodemes belonging to three leishmanio complexes: leishmania infantum, l. major and l. killicki. all strains isolated from human and canine visceral leishmaniasis belonged to l. infantum. zymodeme mon-1 was the ...200717933302
[epidemiology of leishmania (l.) infantum, l. major and l. killicki in tunisia: results and analysis of the identification of 226 human and canine isolates].the epidemiological situation of leishmaniasis in tunisia is characterised by the co-existence in a very limited territory (165,000 km2, sahara included), of 4 clinical forms: the infantile visceral leishmaniasis (vl) and 3 cutaneous leishmaniasis (cl) forms (sporadic, zoonotic and chronic). in addition to the useful epidemiological data, identification of the causative parasitic species is essential to determine the geographic distribution of each form and to select appropriate therapeutic proc ...200818956815
geographical distribution updating of tunisian leishmaniasis foci: about the isoenzymatic analysis of 694 strains.over a period of ten years, a series of 694 leishmania strains from tunisian leishmaniasis foci were isolated and identified by isoenzymatic analysis. strains were obtained from human cutaneous and visceral leishmaniasis in immunocompetent subjects, visceral leishmaniasis in imunocompromised individuals and from dogs with visceral leishmaniasis. two classically dermotropic species, leishmania (l.) major and leishmania killicki were found. l. major with the single zymodeme mon-25 was the most iso ...201222940099
