Our present study is the first attempt to characterize Leishmania parasites from foci in Uzbekistan and Tajikistan endemic for visceral leishmaniasis (VL). PCR-sequencing of the ribosomal internal transcribed spacer 1 and multilocus microsatellite typing (MLMT) were applied to DNA extracted from preparations of Giemsa-stained bone marrow aspirates from 13(More)
In 2007 - 2008, four (Chodak, Oltinkan, Gulistan, and Chorkesar) of 9 population aggregates in the Papsky District, Namangan Region, Uzbekistan, where visceral leishmaniasis (VL) cases had been registered in the last years were selected to make seroepidemiological and seroepizootological surveys within the international project funded by INTAS grant(More)
Patients with visceral leishmaniasis (VL) have been registered in the Papsky District, Namangan Region, Uzbekistan, over the past 23 years. A total of 95 patients were notified in 1987 to 2009. In 2007-2008, a mass survey using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) within the international INTAS project 05-100006-8043 was conducted in 5 population aggregates(More)
In 2008, the major malaria vectors An.superpictus and An. pulcherrimus amounted up to 50 specimens per premise in the Surkhandaryinsk and Kashkadaryinsk Regions. The high density of larvae in the water reservoirs (as many as 30-50 specimens per square meter) and rice fields (8-60 specimens per square meter) was noted in the Surkhandaryinsk, Namangan,(More)
Malaria was once one of the most common diseases in Uzbekistan. There were massive epidemics with high mortality rates, wherein 140,000 to 700,000 cases of malaria were recorded. Following large-scale malaria control measures, the disease was eradicated in Uzbekistan in 1961 and the epidemiological situation is still favorable. The natural and climatic(More)
Retrospective screening of population was carried out in the Uzbek SSR in 3 physiographic regions, which formerly represented active epidemic foci of visceral leishmaniasis. Seroepidemiologic examination of 8652 persons showed satisfactory results concerning the disease at present. Despite low seropositive level of healthy population in general (0.38%), a(More)
In 2008, mosquito observations were made in 4 populated areas of the Papsky District, Namangan Region, Uzbekistan (Fergana Valley), where visceral leishmaniasis cases had been registered. The mosquitoes were caught in Oltinkan, Gulistan, Chodak, and Chorkesar in July and in Oltinkan in September. A total of 7245 mosquitoes were caught in the living and(More)

In the past five years (1994-1998), 223 cases of imported malaria were recorded in the Republic (Table 1), 190 of which were from countries in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and 33 from other countries. It is noteworthy that the number of cases imported from Tadjikistan--a country that borders eight of the Republic's 12 regions (oblasts)--has(More)
In autobred albino mice, the maximum nonlethal dose of the agent CK-1 was established, which was 19.0 g/kg, the agent was nontoxic. Cotton rats aged 30-45 days were infected by alveococcosis from a donor rat. The methods and formulas developed by Mikhaĭlitsin et al. were used during experiments and investigations. At the beginning of treatment, 5 rats were(More)
