BACKGROUND The serodiagnosis of visceral leishmaniasis due to Leishmania donovani using crude parasite antigen is complicated in many endemic areas by cross-reactions with serum from humans infected with other protozoan diseases. The search for pure antigens avoiding such cross-reactions is in progress. Developing a vaccine against cutaneous leishmaniasis has been much more successful than against visceral leishmaniasis. Immunoprophylactic studies using various combinations of antigens and… CONTINUE READING
