  • BackgroundPhlebotomus orientalis is the major vector of the intramacrophage protozoa, Leishmania donovani, the etiological agent of visceral leishmaniasis (VL) in northern Ethiopia and Sudan. The objective of this study was to determine the nocturnal periodicity of P. orientalis in the VL endemic focus of Tahtay Adiyabo district, northern Ethiopia.MethodsSandflies were collected using CDC light traps by changing collecting bags at an hourly interval from dusk to dawn for six months (January… CONTINUE READING
