Leishmania parasites are named after W.B. Leishman, who developed one of the earliest stains of Leishmania in 1901. Widespread in 22 countries in the New World and in 66 nations in the Old World, leishmaniasis is not found in South-east Asia. Human infections are found in 16 countries in Europe, including France, Italy, Greece, Malta, Spain and Portugal. Occurring in several forms, the disease is generally recognized for its cutaneous form which causes non-fatal, disfiguring lesions, although epidemics of the potentially fatal visceral form cause thousands of deaths.

Canine interferon-gamma as an adjuvant in immunisation of dogs with Leishmania crude antigens
Titel van het onderzoek
Canine interferon-gamma as an adjuvant in immunisation of dogs with Leishmania crude antigens (UDG.3703).
Omschrijving van het onderzoek
Protective immunity to several infectious agents, including Schistosoma mansoni, Toxoplasma gondii, Candida albicans, Mycobacterium leprae, measles virus and HIV has been shown to be mediated by Thl cells that secrete interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) and other cytokines contributing to cell mediated effector mechanisms resulting in the elimination of the invading organism.
In murine models the association between resistance to cutaneous leishmaniasis and the activation of Thl cells producing cytokines such as IFN-gamma, and IL(interleukin)-2 has been documented. In contrast, susceptibility to Leishmania infection is associated with activation of Th2 cells secreting IL-4 and IL-10 which results in failure to activate macrophages, leading to disease progression.
We have recently proposed canine leishmaniasis as a more appropriate model for human leishmaniasis since, in contrast to mice, dogs can develop visceral leishmaniasis upon

From Oklahoma State, Veterinary Parasitology 5333.
Leishmaniasis is an infectious disease of people and wild and domestic animals throughout temperate, subtropical and tropical regions of the world. Old World Leishmania donovani complex- Causative agent of visceral leishmaniasis in Africa, India, South America and Mediterranean countries. Transmitted by sand flies ( Phlebotomus spp Leishmania tropica complex Causative agent of cutanious leishmaniasis in Asia, west Africa and Mediterranean countries. Sandfly transmitted. New World Leishmania braziliensis complex. Parasites in this group produce cutanious lesions or mucocutanious lesions. I is most common in Central and South America with some reportings in U.S. There may be numerous wildlife reservoirs. The cutanious form of the disease, usually manifested by single ulcerated lesions on the ears is most common. Knowledge of leishmaniasis is important to the clinician since infections can cause clinical disease in dogs and cats and because these animals are reservoirs for the organism in some locations. In the Americas, parasites of the

The Leishmaniases
The leishmaniases is a group of diseases caused by protozoan haemoflagelates of the genus Leishmania. These protists belong to the family of the Trypanosomatidae (order Kinetoplastida) and are closely related to the trypanosomes. The disease is tranmitted by female sandflies ( Phlebotomus or Lutzomya ) that feed on the blood of an animal or human host. Leishmaniasis is a zoonosis . It affects mainly sylvatic animals such as rodents and opossums and domestic animals such as dogs. The disease is prevalent in most tropical and sub-tropical areas of the world, such as East and South-East Asia, the Middle Esat, North and East Africa, the south of Europe (the Mediterranian basin) and Central and South America. The disease occurs in three different manifestations depending on the region where it occurs and on the parasite: ( Click here for the World maps of leishmaniases, 22k The different manifestations of Leishmaniasis Type of leishmaniasis Species Visceral Leishmania donovani Cutaneous Oriental sore,

    Leishmaniasis designates a human disorder produced
    by protozoan parasites of the genus Leishmania The cutaneous form of the disease (cutaneous leishmaniasis, CL), is one of the most important causes of chronic ulcerative skin lesions. The disease occurs clinically as either acute CL, chronic CL, recurrent CL and diffuse CL. Photo 1a: Typical lesions of cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by L.major Several species of Leishmania are involved, including L.major L.tropica and L. aethiopica on the Old World, and several species of the L.braziliensis and L.mexicana in the New World. The disease still presents a therapeutic problem in several parts of the world. Both, parenterally (sodium stibogluconate, antimoy-N-methyl-glutamine, pentasmidine and amphotericin-B) and orally (rifampicin, dapson, ketoconazole, itraconazole and allopurinol)

General Concepts
American Trypanosomiasis (Chagas Disease)
Clinical Manifestations
Symptoms of acute disease may include fever, local or general edema, lymphadenopathy, tachycardia, heart enlargement, and myocarditis. Heart alterations and, occasionally, megaesophagus or megacolon may appear as late sequelae.
Typical, small trypomastigotes are found in peripheral blood and intracellular amastigotes in tissues.
Classification and Antigenic Types
Strains of Trypanosoma cruzi are differentiated by isoenzyme patterns and DNA sequencing. No antigenic variation is observed.
Multiplication and Life Cycle
Intracellular amastigotes divide to form pseudocysts, which release nondividing trypomastigotes into the blood. Trypomastigotes ingested by a vector bug transform in the insect intestine into epimastigotes, which reproduce to form infective metacyclic trypomastigotes, which are expelled in feces and enter a new host through skin abrasions.
Inflammatory reactions around pseudocysts lead to myocarditis and destruction of parasympathetic ganglia (mainly of the heart and myenteric plexus). An autoimmune reaction may develop.
