In this study we compared a commercial enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) rapid test (Snap CLATK Canine Leishmania Antibody Test Kit, IDEXX-Snap) with indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA) and Western blot (WB) for the detection of Leishmania infantum antibodies in dogs. In total sera from 234 dogs were collected: 59 positives and 51 doubtful sera (IFA 1:40-1:80) from an L. infantum endemic area and 124 negative sera from a non-endemic area were tested. To evaluate the Snap CLATK's… CONTINUE READING
