Triosephosphate Isomerase Gene Characterization and Potential Zoonotic Transmission of Giardia duodenalis
These data confirm that G. duodenalis from certain animals can potentially infect humans and should be useful in the detection, differentiation, and taxonomy of Giardia spp. Expand
Wide geographic distribution of Cryptosporidium bovis and the deer-like genotype in bovines.
Both C. bovis and the deer-like genotype are found in all age groups of cattle in diverse geographic areas and host adaptation of C. Bovis might have occurred in yaks. Expand

A prospective study in a cohort of 355 persons in a leishmaniasis-endemic village of the Patna District in Bihar, India, found high prevalence of asymptomatic persons and clinical VL cases and high density of Phlebotomus argentipes sand flies can lead to transmission of VL in VL- endemic areas.

Molecular Characterization of Cryptosporidium spp. from Children in Kolkata, India
The molecular characterization of the parasite from diarrheic children was carried out by PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis and suggests that cryptosporidiosis in India is caused largely by anthroponotic transmission. Expand
Mechanism of Amphotericin B Resistance in Clinical Isolates of Leishmania donovani
It can be concluded that altered membrane composition, ATP-binding cassette transporters, and an upregulated thiol metabolic pathway have a role in conferring amphotericin B resistance in clinical isolates of Leishmania donovani. Expand

  • 1 March 2007
Endemicity of cryptosporidiosis in India has been documented with little genetic characterization of the parasites. Fifty Cryptosporidium-positive specimens collected between 2001 and 2004 fromExpand
A Global Comparative Evaluation of Commercial Immunochromatographic Rapid Diagnostic Tests for Visceral Leishmaniasis
Accuracy of rapid diagnostic tests was high in the Indian subcontinent; however, in Brazilian and East African samples, reduced sensitivity suggests that several cannot be used alone to excludeExpand
Observations on the epidemiology of bovine cryptosporidiosis in India.
Results indicated that Cryptosporidium parvum mainly responsible for diarrhea in bovine in India is indicated by PCR-RFLP analysis of SSU rRNA gene. Expand
Identification of aerobic gut bacteria from the kala azar vector, Phlebotomus argentipes: a platform for potential paratransgenic manipulation of sand flies.
The results indicate that B. megaterium and B. linens are possible candidates for use in a model of paratransgenesis to prevent transmission of Leishmania. Expand
