Leishmania infantum in US-Born Dog.

Marcos E de Almeida, Dennis R Spann, Richard S Bradbury,

Leishmaniasis is a vectorborne disease that can infect humans, dogs, and other mammals. We identified one of its causative agents, Leishmania infantum, in a dog born in California, USA, demonstrating potential for autochthonous infections in this country. Our finding bolsters the need for improved leishmaniasis screening practices in the United ... Read more >>

Detection and Differentiation of Leishmania spp. in Clinical Specimens by Use of a SYBR Green-Based Real-Time PCR Assay.

Marcos E de Almeida, Ozgur Koru, Francis Steurer, Barbara L Herwaldt, Alexandre J da Silva,

Leishmaniasis in humans is caused by Leishmania spp. in the subgenera Leishmania and Viannia Species identification often has clinical relevance. Until recently, our laboratory relied on conventional PCR amplification of the internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) region (ITS2-PCR) followed by sequencing analysis of the PCR product to differentiate Leishmania spp. ...

Performance of a real time PCR for leishmaniasis diagnosis using a L. (L.) infantum hypothetical protein as target in canine samples.

Fabio Antonio Colombo, Vera Lucia Pereira-Chioccola, Cristina da Silva Meira, Gabriela Motoie, Ricardo Gava, Roberto M Hiramoto, Marcos E de Almeida, Alexandre J da Silva, Andre Antonio Cutolo, Ingrid Menz,

Visceral leishmaniasis represents an important public health issue in different parts of the world, requiring that measures be put in place to control the spread of the disease worldwide. The canine leishmaniasis diagnosis is not easy based on clinical signs, since dogs may not develop the infection with recognizable signs. ... Read more >>

Outbreak of Trichinella spiralis infections associated with a wild boar hunted at a game farm in Iowa.

Stacy M Holzbauer, William A Agger, Rebecca L Hall, Gary M Johnson, David Schmitt, Ann Garvey, Henry S Bishop, Hilda Rivera, Marcos E de Almeida, Dolores Hill, Bert E Stromberg, Ruth Lynfield, Kirk E Smith,

<h4>Background</h4>Rates of trichinellosis have declined significantly in the United States due to improved pork production practices and public awareness of the danger of eating raw or undercooked pork. In April 2011, the Minnesota Department of Health received a report of presumptive trichinellosis in a 50-year-old man with a history of ... Read more >>

Heterogeneity of the internal transcribed spacer region in Leishmania tropica isolates from southern Iran.

Mohammad Amin Ghatee, Iraj Sharifi, Katrin Kuhls, Zahra Kanannejad, Majid Fasihi Harandi, Marcos E de Almeida, Gholamreza Hatam, Hossein Mirhendi,

Most of cutaneous leishmaniasis cases occur in only 7 countries, including Iran. Leishmania tropica is the main cause of anthroponotic cutaneous leishmaniasis in Iran. In order to study the heterogeneity and phylogeny of L. tropica in southern Iran, a total of 61 isolates were obtained from Bam district and the ... Read more >>

Identification of Leishmania spp. by molecular amplification and DNA sequencing analysis of a fragment of rRNA internal transcribed spacer 2.

Marcos E de Almeida, Francis J Steurer, Ozgur Koru, Barbara L Herwaldt, Norman J Pieniazek, Alexandre J da Silva,

Isoenzyme analysis of cultured parasites is the conventional approach for Leishmania species identification. Molecular approaches have the potential to be more sensitive and rapid. We designed PCR generic primers to amplify a segment of the rRNA internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) from multiple Leishmania species. To validate the selected ITS2 ... Read more >>

Usefulness of PCR method for detection of Leishmania in Poland.

Przemysław Myjak, Joanna Szulta, Marcos E de Almeida, Alexandre J da Silva, Francis Steurer, Anna Lass, Halina Pietkiewicz, Wacław L Nahorski, Jolanta Goljan, Józef Knap, Beata Szostakowska,

Leishmania parasites are the etiological agents of leishmaniosis, with severe course and often fatal prognosis, and the global number of cases has increased in recent decades. The gold standards for the diagnosis of leishmaniosis are microscopic examinations and culture in vitro of the different clinical specimens. The sensitivity of these ... Read more >>
