Cross-reactive studies in visceral leishmaniasis: comparison of antigens of some Leishmania species in Kenya.

Abstract

Little is known about the common antigens of the various strains of Leishmania in Kenya, and their possible role in immunity to disease. Kenyan isolates of Leishmania donovani, L. Major and L. tropica were cultured, crude antigens prepared and electrophoresced in sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE). Immunoblots by pooled… (More)
