Prospective Observational Study of Intralesional Treatment With Pentostam in Cutaneous Leishmaniasis Israeli Patients

Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is endemic in Israel and is caused by Leishmania major or Leishmania tropica. CL is usually a benign disease and limited to the skin. One of the local treatmen...

Safety, False-Positive Reactions and Sensitizing Properties of Leishmania Tropica Skin Test Antigen

The efficacy of LtSTA as a skin test antigen depends upon the sensitivity and specificity of the product. This study has been designed to determine if a 15, 30, or 50µg dose shows non-spe...

Accuracy of a Rapid Diagnostic Test for Cutaneous Leishmaniasis in Morocco

The aim of this study is to estimate the accuracy of CL Detect Rapid Test™ compared to a composite reference standard test (Direct examination of skin smears + PCR test) in patients with...

Safety Study to Evaluate the Leish-111f + MPL-SE Vaccine in the Prevention of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis in Healthy Subjects Previously Exposed to the Leishmania Parasite

This study will evaluate the safety of the Leish-111f + MPL-SE vaccine in adult subjects with a previous exposure to the Leishmania parasite (but without current or past history of leishma...

Rapid Strep Testing in Children With Recent Streptococcal Pharyngitis

The purpose of this study is to determine if the rapid antigen detection test for Group A streptococcal pharyngitis diagnosis might yield higher rates of false positive results in patients...

Leishmania infection in blood donors: A new challenge in leishmaniasis transmission?

Transfusion-transmitted leishmaniasis has been a concern in regions endemic for the disease. Whether immediate or delayed, the risks posed by this mode of transmission call for careful assessment. The...

Molecular detection of Leishmania infantum DNA and host blood meal identification in Phlebotomus in a hypoendemic focus of human leishmaniasis in northern Algeria.

Leishmania parasites are transmitted by female phlebotomine sand flies that maintain the enzootic cycle by circulating between sylvatic and domestic mammals. Humans are part of this cycle as accidenta...

Development of immunochromatographic test strips for rapid, quantitative detection of H9AIV antibodies.

To improve viral antibody detection and disease control, laboratories need faster and simpler methods for direct detection of H9AIV in clinical samples. In this study, test strips were developed for r...

Development of an automated image analysis protocol for quantification of intracellular forms of Leishmania spp.

Leishmania parasites cause a set of neglected tropical diseases with considerable public health impact, the leishmaniases, which are often fatal if left untreated. Since current treatments for the lei...

American cutaneous leishmaniasis triggered by electrocoagulation.

Cutaneous leishmaniasis is usually transmitted by infected phlebotomine sand fly bites that initiate local cutaneous lesions. Few reports in the literature describe other modes of transmission. We rep...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A parasitic hemoflagellate of the subgenus Leishmania leishmania that infects man and animals including rodents. The Leishmania mexicana complex causes both cutaneous (LEISHMANIASIS, CUTANEOUS) and diffuse cutaneous leishmaniasis (LEISHMANIASIS, DIFFUSE CUTANEOUS) and includes the subspecies amazonensis, garnhami, mexicana, pifanoi, and venezuelensis. L. m. mexicana causes chiclero ulcer, a form of cutaneous leishmaniasis (LEISHMANIASIS, CUTANEOUS) in the New World. The sandfly, Lutzomyia, appears to be the vector.

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.

A parasitic hemoflagellate of the subgenus Leishmania leishmania that infects man and rodents. This taxonomic complex includes species which cause a disease called Oriental sore which is a form of cutaneous leishmaniasis (LEISHMANIASIS, CUTANEOUS) of the Old World.

A parasitic hemoflagellate of the subgenus Leishmania viannia that infects man and animals. It causes cutaneous (LEISHMANIASIS, CUTANEOUS), diffuse cutaneous (LEISHMANIASIS, DIFFUSE CUTANEOUS), and mucocutaneous leishmaniasis (LEISHMANIASIS, MUCOCUTANEOUS) depending on the subspecies of this organism. The sandfly, Lutzomyia, is the vector. The Leishmania braziliensis complex includes the subspecies braziliensis and peruviana. Uta, a form of cutaneous leishmaniasis in the New World, is caused by the subspecies peruviana.

Hemagglutination test in which Coombs' reagent (antiglobulin, or anti-human globulin rabbit immune serum) is added to detect incomplete (non-agglutinating, univalent, blocking) antibodies coating erythrocytes. The direct test is applied to red cells which have been coated with antibody in vivo (e.g., in hemolytic disease of newborn, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, and transfusion reactions). The indirect test is applied to serum to detect the presence of antibody (e.g., in detection of incompatibility in cross-matching tests, detection and identification of irregular antibodies, and in detection of antibodies not identifiable by other means).
