AIMS To examine biological materials (blood, urine, cerebrospinal fluid) of patients with suspected leptospirosis using real-time PCR for detecting the gene that codes the superficial LipL32 lipoprotein, and to evaluate the contribution of the real-time PCR method for the laboratory diagnosis of the acute form of leptospirosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS During the monitored period of April 2010 - December 2011, a total of 340 biological materials samples were examined (177x blood plasma, 88x urine… CONTINUE READING
