Abstract

Dogs naturally infected with Leishmania infantum (=L. chagasi) were treated with miltefosine using different therapeutic regimens. The animals were evaluated for clinical evolution, biochemical parameters, parasite load (by real-time PCR), cytokine levels and humoral response. After treatment and...

Abstract

The clinical evolution of Leishmania infantum infection in dogs is largely influenced by the host's individual immune response. Few studies have investigated the time course and clinical evolution of the infection both under experimental and natural conditions. In the present investigation, the...

Abstract

The greater part of this paper is devoted to a study of the normal cells of the blood, their origin and development, and their appearances in preparations from bone-marrow withdrawn from the living animal. A technique for puncture of the sternum of the dog is described in detail, the puncture being ...

Abstract

The authors draw attention to the fact that some of the earlier workers did not consider the possibility of dogs acquiring immunity to kala azar as a result of a previous attack contracted naturally. A further point which appears to have escaped notice is the possibility of dogs possessing a high...

Abstract

" The significance of the herpetomonad stage of Leishmania, of the recent announcements that such stages occur in man, and of the presence of natural herpetomonads in other vertebrates (for example, mice), are discussed. 1t also recalled that insect herpetomonads can invade and. live in...

Abstract

Although 14 years only have passed since the discovery of Leishmania donovani and L. trópica a very large number of papers have been published on these protozoa and the diseases produced by them; these articles are, however, to be found distributed throughout a large number of periodicals which are ...
