[prevalence of anti-leishmania spp antibodies in dogs from garanhuns, in the middle scrub zone (agreste) of pernambuco].considering the unknown situation regarding canine visceral leishmaniasis in garanhuns, this study had the aim of investigating occurrences of anti-leishmania spp antibodies in domesticated and partially domesticated dogs, and the possible risk factors involved.201020305967
detection of antibodies against leishmania infantum in cats (felis catus) from the state of pernambuco, brazil.little information is available concerning infection by leishmania infantum in cats. therefore, the aim of this study was to perform a serological study in domestic cats.201424603746
sandflies (diptera: psychodidae) in an urban area of northeastern brazil.the sandfly fauna is well studied globally. in brazil, sandfly fauna is very diverse in the northeast region, especially in states such as maranhão, ceará, and bahia. however, in the state of pernambuco, the distribution of these insects is still not well known. therefore, the objective of this study was to identify the different species that constitute the sandfly fauna in an urban area in the northeast region of brazil, where an outbreak of visceral leishmaniasis (vl) was recently reported.201728001216
ecology of lutzomyia longipalpis and lutzomyia migonei in an endemic area for visceral leishmaniasis.the main vector for visceral leishmaniasis (vl) in brazil is lutzomyia longipalpis. however, the absence of l. longipalpis in a region of autochthonous vl demonstrates the participation of other species in the transmission of the parasite. studies conducted in la banda, argentina, and são vicente férrer, pernambuco state, brazil, have correlated the absence of l. longipalpis and the presence of l. migonei with autochthonous cases of vl. in são vicente férrer, pernambuco, there was evidence for t ...201625271451
genetic structuring and fixed polymorphisms in the gene period among natural populations of lutzomyia longipalpis in brazil.even one hundred years after being originally identified, aspects of the taxonomy of the sand fly lutzomyia longipalpis, the principal vector of leishmania infantum in the americas, remain unresolved for brazilian populations of this vector. the diversity of morphological, behavioral, biochemical, and ethological characters, as well as the genetic variability detected by molecular markers are indicative of the presence of a complex of species.201525889567
natural leishmania infantum infection in migonemyia migonei (frança, 1920) (diptera:psychodidae:phlebotominae) the putative vector of visceral leishmaniasis in pernambuco state, brazil.a study of the natural infection of phlebotomine sand flies by leishmania (leishmania) infantum was conducted in an area of visceral leishmaniasis in são vicente férrer, located in the northern part of the atlantic rain forest region in the state of pernambuco, brazil. in a previous study, migonemyia migonei have been found predominantly in peridomiciles and houses in this endemic area. the analysis of m. migonei, collected by cdc light trap, by multiplex pcr assay coupled to non-isotopic hybrid ...201020457120
