Evidence that domestic dogs may act as reservoir hosts for cutaneous leishmaniasis in the Peruvian Andes is provided by the isolation, for the first time, from naturally infected dogs of parasites identified (by isoenzymes) as Leishmania peruviana. Leishmania parasites were isolated from nasal aspirates or biopsies from 5 (1.8%) of 279 asymptomatic dogs(More)
Forty-one Leishmania peruviana isolates were selected along a north-south transect which crossed areas endemic for uta in three different biogeographical regions in the Peruvian Andes. The isolates were analysed by molecular karyotyping and hybridization with three chromosome-derived DNA probes. All the isolates could be distinguished from L. braziliensis(More)
During a study on the prevalence and diversity of campylobacteria in wild birds faecal samples from the city of Valdivia (southern Chile) 17 Gram-stain-negative, curved-rod-shaped isolates, were initially identified as Campylobacter lari by PCR-RFLP. Further identification by 16S rRNA sequence analysis revealed that they formed a distinct group in the genus(More)
