[monitoring of canine leishmaniasis in northern italy: an update from a scientific network].canine leishmaniasis (canl) due to leishmania infantum is a disease of great veterinary importance and a serious public health problem. in humans, l. infantum causes visceral (vl) and cutaneous leishmaniasis (cl) and the distribution of vl overlaps that of canl. currently, vl is considered by who as an emerging zoonosis in southern europe. the dog is the only domestic reservoir of the infection and phlebotomine sandflies are the only proven vectors of leishmaniasis for dogs and humans. canl is e ...200415305715
the recombinant protein rsp03b is a valid antigen for screening dog exposure to phlebotomus perniciosus across foci of canine leishmaniasis.the frequency of sandfly-host contacts can be measured by host antibody levels against sandfly salivary proteins. recombinant salivary proteins are suggested to represent a valid replacement for salivary gland homogenate (sgh); however, it is necessary to prove that such antigens are recognized by antibodies against various populations of the same species. phlebotomus perniciosus (diptera: psychodidae) is the main vector of leishmania infantum (trypanosomatida: trypanosomatidae) in southwest eur ...201727718267
a survey on canine leishmaniasis and phlebotomine sand flies in central italy.zoonotic visceral leishmaniasis (zvl) is a vector-transmitted zoonosis caused by the parasitic protozoan leishmania infantum. bloodsucking sand flies of the subfamily phlebotominae are the obligatory insect hosts, and the dog is the only domestic reservoir. this study reports data from a survey of canine infection and sand fly phlebotomine monitoring in the province of perugia in central italy. the overall seroprevalence in a total of 100 dogs tested was 8% (95% confidence interval: 3.8-15.6%). ...200919217126
