Sera from 32 Indian patients with post-kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis (PKDL) were examined for antibodies by immunoblot analysis using an antigen extract of Leishmania donovani. The study revealed that the humoral immune response in PKDL patients was quite distinct compared to that in kala-azar patients. Antibodies to 3 antigens of L. donovani (molecular(More)
239 Sarcoptic Mange in Dogs INTRODUCTION Sarcoptic mange is a contagious parasitic skin infection characterized by intense pruritus associated with vesiculo-papular eruptions and pinpoint crusts in combination with alopecia (1). Clinical signs of sarcoptic mange are primarily due to the host’s allergic reaction to the mite, Sarcoptes scabiei var. canis. The(More)
When infected with Leishmania donovani, patients develop specific antibodies that constitute the basis of serodiagnosis. Using immunoblot analysis, we examined the antibody response to antigens of L. donovani in 35 kala-azar (KA) patients and 67 controls. Sera from KA patients recognised numerous antigens with molecular weights ranging from 14-110 kDa.(More)
