low frequency of lrv1 in leishmania braziliensis strains isolated from typical and atypical lesions in the state of minas gerais, brazil.the double stranded rna (dsrna) virus leishmaniavirus (totiviridae) was first described in leishmania guyanensis and l. braziliensis (lrv1), and more recently from l. major and l. aethiopica (lrv2). parasites bearing lrv1 elicit a higher pro-inflammatory profile, arising through activation of toll like receptor 3(tlr3) interacting with the viral dsrna. lrv1 is most common in leishmania from the amazon region; however data for other regions of brazil are more limited. here we applied pcr tests wi ...201727546549
wild, synanthropic and domestic hosts of leishmania in an endemic area of cutaneous leishmaniasis in minas gerais state, brazil.domestic, synanthropic and wild hosts of leishmania spp. parasites were studied in an area endemic for american tegumentary leishmaniasis (atl), specifically in northern minas gerais state, brazil. domestic dogs and small forest mammals are reservoir hosts for l. (leishmania) infantum. however, the role that these animals play in the transmission cycle of the leishmania spp. that cause cutaneous leishmaniasis is not well known. this study evaluated 72 rodents, 25 marsupials and 98 domestic dogs ...201121890159
