In canine visceral leishmaniasis (CVL), lymphopenia, and the disorganization of lymphoid organs such as spleen and lymph nodes have been demonstrated. However, the involvement of thymus in CVL has not been evaluated so far. Herein, we investigated whether the thymus can be colonized by Leishmania infantum in naturally infected dogs.

The clinical manifestations most frequently observed in cats with leishmaniasis caused by Leishmania infantum are cutaneous alterations, which suggest a high parasitic load in the skin and the possibi...
The objectives of this work were to study some pathological aspects of kidneys obtained from dogs naturally infected with Leishmania infantum and from dogs experimentally infected with two different s...
Leishmania infantum infection in wildlife is increasingly reported in Europe, but scant data are available in Italy so far. This study aimed to investigate the circulation of L. infantum among sylvati...
In this work, we aimed to evaluate the effects of the Leishmania infantum chagasi infection on the liver of vaccinated mice, considering parameters of tissue damage and the inflammatory response elici...
The quantification of anti-Leishmania antibodies in serum and saliva by a time-resolved immunofluorometric assay is useful for the diagnosis and treatment monitoring of dogs with clinical leishmaniasi...
ASYMPTOMATIC CARRIER OF LEISHMANIA INFANTUM, MEDISERRANEAN VISCERAL LEISHMANIOSIS AGENT: STUDY OF IMMUNE RESPONSE - POSTULATE PRIOR TO HUMAN VACCINAL TRIALS Immune Response of Asymptomatic Carriers to L. Infantum
Leishmaniasis is considered by the WHO as emerging and uncontrolled diseases. They are the second leading cause of death and the fourth leading cause of morbidity in tropical diseases. Lei...
L. infantum leishmaniasis is endemic in the South of France. For several years, there has been an expansion of the territory of sandflies (vector of leishmaniasis), with the appearance of ...
In some studies of fetal thymus volume, fetal stress factors; infection, preterm premature premature rupture of membranes, preeclampsia, preterm delivery risk. Generally, there is a direc...
The purpose of this study is to determine how the body defends itself against Leishmania (Viannia), a parasite that can cause a skin infection and skin sores. Certain cells in the immune s...
One purpose of this study is to determine whether the amount of thymus tissue transplanted into DiGeorge syndrome infants has any effect on the immune outcome. Another purpose of this stud...
A genus of flagellate protozoa comprising several species that are pathogenic for humans. Organisms of this genus have an amastigote and a promastigote stage in their life cycles. As a result of enzymatic studies this single genus has been divided into two subgenera: Leishmania leishmania and Leishmania viannia. Species within the Leishmania leishmania subgenus include: L. aethiopica, L. arabica, L. donovani, L. enrietti, L. gerbilli, L. hertigi, L. infantum, L. major, L. mexicana, and L. tropica. The following species are those that compose the Leishmania viannia subgenus: L. braziliensis, L. guyanensis, L. lainsoni, L. naiffi, and L. shawi.
A parasitic hemoflagellate of the subgenus Leishmania leishmania that infects man and animals and causes visceral leishmaniasis (LEISHMANIASIS, VISCERAL). Human infections are confined almost entirely to children. This parasite is commonly seen in dogs, other Canidae, and porcupines with humans considered only an accidental host. Transmission is by Phlebotomus sandflies.
A genus of RNA protozoan viruses of the family TOTIVIRIDAE. Several different strains of Leishmania are infected by a variety of viral species. The type species is Leishmania RNA virus 1-1.
A parasitic hemoflagellate of the subgenus Leishmania leishmania that has been found as a natural infection of the Brazilian guinea pig. Its host-tissue relationship is, in general, comparable to that of L. braziliensis.
A parasitic hemoflagellate of the subgenus Leishmania leishmania that infects man and animals and causes cutaneous leishmaniasis (LEISHMANIASIS, CUTANEOUS) of the Old World. Transmission is by Phlebotomus sandflies.
Tropical Medicine is the study of diseases more commonly found in tropical regions than elsewhere. Examples of these diseases are malaria, yellow fever, Chagas disease, Dengue, Helminths, African trypanosomiasis, Leishmaniasis, Leprosy, Lymphatic filaria...
