sandflies (diptera, psychodidae) from forest areas in botucatu municipality, central western são paulo state, brazil.the study of the distribution and ecology of sandfly species is essential for epidemiological surveillance and estimation of the transmission risk of leishmania spp. infection.201323849624
host-biting rate and susceptibility of some suspected vectors to leishmania braziliensis.american tegumentary leishmaniasis is a serious brazilian public health problem. this diseases is attributed to seven species of leishmania, however, the majority of cases are associated with leishmania braziliensis. some phlebotomine species have been implicated in the transmission of this parasite, nonetheless only psychodopygus wellcomei has had its vectorial competence demonstrated. thus this study sought to assess some parameters related to the vectorial capacity of anthropophilic species o ...201424684943
phlebotomine sand flies (diptera: psychodidae) and leishmania infection in gafanhoto park, divinópolis, brazil.the potential of gafanhoto park as an american cutaneous leishmaniasis (acl) focus was evaluated by examination of sand fly vectors of the leishmania parasite. this forest remnant is located in a periurban area of divin6polis, brazil, where autochthonous cases of acl have been reported. sand fly populations were monitored over a 2-yr period (2006-2008) by using light traps (hp and shannon). during systematic collections with hp traps, 824 specimens in total (342 males and 482 females) of 21 spec ...201021175074
detection of leishmania (viannia) in nyssomyia neivai and nyssomyia whitmani by multiplex polymerase chain reaction, in southern brazil.sandflies transmit pathogens of leishmaniasis. the natural infection of sandflies by leishmania (viannia) was assessed in municipalities, in the state of paraná, in southern brazil. sandflies were collected with falcão and shannon traps. after dissection in search of flagellates in digestive tubes and identification of the species, female sandflies were submitted to the multiplex polymerase chain reaction (multiplex pcr) for detection of the fragment of the kdna of leishmania (viannia) and the f ...025229218
lutzomyia (pintomyia) fischeri (diptera: psychodidae: phlebotominae), a probable vector of american cutaneous leishmaniasis: detection of natural infection by leishmania (viannia) dna in specimens from the municipality of porto alegre (rs), brazil, using multiplex pcr order to determine natural leishmania (viannia) infection in lutzomyia (pintomyia) fischeri, a multiplex pcr methodology coupled to non-isotopic hybridization was adopted for the analysis of sand fly samples collected by cdc light traps in an endemic area of american cutaneous leishmaniasis (acl) in the periurban region of the municipality of porto alegre, rio grande do sul state, brazil. we analyzed by pcr methodology 560 specimens of lutzomyia (pintomyia) fischeri (520 females and 40 males) ...201121939631
ecological aspects of phlebotomine sand flies (diptera, psychodidae, phlebotominae) in areas of american cutaneous leishmaniasis, in the municipality of paraty, rio de janeiro, brazil. i-index of abundance by location and type of capture.the description of the first and autochthonous case of diffuse cutaneous leishmaniasis in the municipality of paraty, state of rio de janeiro, brought the interest of this study. sand flies were captured over a 3-yr period. using manual suction tubes, sand flies were collected from the inner and outer walls of homes, in the living spaces of domestic animals, and in shannon light traps, which were set up outside homes and in the forest. cdc light traps were installed inside homes, around the exte ...201526336245
