Increased Prevalence of Human Cutaneous Leishmaniasis in Israel and The Palestinian Authority Caused by the Recent Emergence of a Population of Genetically Similar Strains of Leishmania tropica
Twelve unlinked microsatellite markers were used to determine the microsatellite profiles of 50 newly and 46 previously typed strains of L. tropica from various Israeli and Palestinian foci. Their microsatellite profiles ...
Multilocus microsatellite typing reveals a genetic relationship but, also, genetic differencesbetween Indian strains of Leishmania tropica causing cutaneous leishmaniasis and thosecausing visceral leishmaniasis
(BMC BIoMed Central, 2014-03-24)
Background: Leishmaniases are divided into cutaneous (CL) and visceral leishmaniasis (VL). In the Old World, CL is caused by Leishmania (L.) major, L. tropica and L. aethiopica. L. tropica can also visceralize and cause ...
