A nested polymerase chain reaction for diagnosis and follow-up of human visceral leishmaniasis patients using blood samples.

Abstract

A nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay for the diagnosis of human visceral leishmaniasis (VL) due to Leishmania infantum infection was developed using primers selected from the parasite's genomic deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). The assay, which is based on the use of leucocytes separated from blood samples by Ficoll-Paque centrifugation, was compared… (More)
