  author={Sasan Alimoradi and Homa Hajjaran and Mehdi Mohebali and Fariba Mansouri},
Background: Characterization of Leishmania parasites is necessary for epidemiological objectives such as documenting the distribution of predominant species and designing appropriate control measures. In this study, we aimed to identify Leishmania species isolated from cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) patients, using RAPD-PCR method. Methods: This descriptive, cross-sectional study was designed against 20 Leishmania spp. which were confirmed by parasitological examination, isolated from 30… CONTINUE READING
