Numerical cladistics is applied to the phyletic analysis of the genus Leishmania Ross, 1903. 128 Old World stocks are characterized by means of electrophoretic techniques using 13 enzymes. The 68 electromorphs detected allow to group the stocks into 17 zymodemes. Data are treated with the Farris' method (1970). The resultant cladogram appears to be coherent. It recognizes classical systematics entities. It sets off two sister groups: major-gerbilli on one hand, donovani-tropica-aethiopica on… 
Healing of Old World cutaneous leishmaniasis in travelers treated with fluconazole: drug effect or spontaneous evolution?
TLDR
The assumption that oral fluconazole is consistently effective for treatment of CL caused by L. major is questioned, as the definition of outcome relied exclusively on re-epithelialization.
WR 279 , 396 , a third generation aminoglycoside ointment for the treatment of Leishmania major cutaneous leishmaniasis : a phase 2 , randomized , double blind , placebo controlled study
TLDR
Application of WR279,396 for 20 days was found to be safe and effective in treating L. major CL, and offers great potential as a new, simple, easily applicable, and inexpensive topical therapy for this neglected disease.
