PMID: 16778312

Abstract

Post kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis (PKDL) is a dermatosis that occurs as a sequel of visceral leishmaniasis (VL). Elimination of VL requires detection and treatment of PKDL, necessarily because of its capacity to serve as a reservoir for the causative parasite, Leishmania donovani. Dia...read more

Parasite Genetics

Parasite genetics is the study of the genetic material of parasites. Here is the latest research on parasite genetics.

Leishmaniasis

Leishmaniasis is a parasitic infection caused by Leishmania species and transmitted though the bite of phlebotomine sand flies. It is considered to be a neglected tropical disease. Leishmaniasis is often categorized as cutaneous (presenting with skin sores, mucocutaneous (presenting with skin and mucosal lesions), and visceral (affecting multiple organs).

Antibodies: Agglutination

Antibody-mediated agglutination is the clumping of cells in the presence of antibody, which binds multiple cells together. This enhances the clearance of pathogens. Find the latest research on antibody-mediated agglutination here.
