Using the immunoblot technique, we have compared the reactions of Leishmania donovani infantum polypeptides with the immunoglobulin G of human sera from patients with parasitologically proven L. d. infantum infection, with suspected visceral leishmaniasis, and with other leishmaniases, protozoiases, helminthiases, and fungal or bacterial diseases. A 94-kDa component reacted with all L. d. infantum-infected sera and with 75% of sera from patients with clinical and serological but no… CONTINUE READING
