RESUMO. Os A A. analisaram as alterações histológicas encontradas em 162 casos de Leishmaniose Tegumentar da localidade de Três Braços, Estado da Bahia, dos quais 131 (80,9%) eram de portadores de lesões cutâneas e 31 (19,1%) de portadores de lesões mucosas. Analisaram, também, o comportamento clínico dos cinco padrões histopatológicos, já antes descritos, em relação à terapêutica. O melhor prognóstico esteve sempre ligado ao padrão de Reação Exsudativa e Granulomatosa, ou seja, a uma fase na qual o organismo, tendo lançado mão de um mecanismo endógeno de lise parasitária, já circunscreveu a área de necrose por uma reação granulomatosa, e esta é agora apenas o elemento residual. A ação terapêutica nessa fase somente acelera a resolução natural do caso. O grupo seguinte é amplo, e compreende os casos em que a lesão pertence aos padrões de Reação Exsudativa Celular (formas cutâneas), Reação Exsudativa e Necrótica e Reação Exsudativa e ...
Mucosal leishmaniasis is a rare form of the disease, that affects only 6% of the patients with cutaneous leishmaniasis in the New World. It causes deformities and may be lethal if not treated. It is part of the neglected tropical diseases because on the past sixty years there was few progress regarding other treatment options or improvement at quality of life of its patients. Also, there was little interest from the pharmaceutical industry and government authorities to develop new researches. The standard treatment, meglumine antimoniate, is toxic, invasive, requires trained personnel and has many adverse effects and restrictions. On the other hand, miltefosine is the first oral drug to demonstrate efficacy against mucocutaneous leishmaniasis. Few clinical trials have being performed in Central and South American countries, but so far, just one involved mucosal leishmaniasis patients, and compared miltefosine to amphotericin B. None studies comparing its efficacy to the standard treatment have ...
OBJECTIVES. Canine leishmaniasis is an endemic zoonotic disease highly widespread in the Mediterranean basin. There is a broad spectrum on clinical features ranging from local cutaneous forms to visceral forms, depending mainly on hosts immune response. Mucosal leishmaniasis is an atypical presentation form produced by metastatic leishmanial dissemination all through the mucous membranes that was firstly described by Font et al. in 1995. To try to describe five new cases of mucosal leishmaniasis is the first objective of this work, one of the cases was localized on a bitch nipple, and that, to the authors knowledge hasnt been previously described. Second objective is focused in the study of the incidence of this rare leishmaniasis type, in order to make a right valuation within the differential diagnosis of tumor-like lesions of mucous membranes.. MATERIALS. The present study was accomplished over 983 dogs that were brought to "Facultad de Veterinaria de Zaragoza" during the 2000-2001 years ...
Photo 4. Show lesion in hamster thre months after inoculation. L. braziliensis, the causative organism of Espundia, is difficult to demonstrate in the lesions. Inoculation into the nose and feet of hamsters may result in the development of small nodules at the inoculation sites nine months or more later. Culture in vitro is very difficult. This is termed a slow strain of parasite.. ...
Leishmaniasis is a disease spread by the bite of the sandfly. It is found mostly in tropical countries. There are several types of leishmaniasis, and they vary in symptoms and severity. Visceral leishmaniasis (VL, or kala azar) is the most severe; left untreated, it is always fatal. Its symptoms include fever, weight loss, anemia, and a swelling of the spleen and liver. Mucocutaneous leishmaniasis (MCL, or espundia) produces lesions that affect the nose, mouth, and throat and can destroy their mucous membranes. Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) produces skin ulcers, sometimes as many as 200, that cause disability and extensive scarring. Diffuse cutaneous leishmaniasis (DCL) is similar to CL, and infected people are prone to relapses. Approximately 12 million cases of leishmaniasis exist today. ...
Infections caused by the protozoan leishmania represent a wide range of diseases, including CL, mucocutaneous leishmaniasis (ML), and visceral leishmaniasis (VL) [10]. The disease is endemic in 88 countries of southern Europe, Central and South America, Africa, the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent. More than 350 million men, women and children are at risk of leishmaniasis worldwide [11]. The are 12 million individuals suffering from the disease worldwide, with half a million new cases of VL and 1.5 million cases of CL registered annually [11]. The incidence of infections caused by leishmania in HIV-infected patients is increasing throughout the world [12].. Although VL is the most frequent form of leishmania infection seen in HIV-infected patients, CL and HIV co-infections are also becoming frequent in these individuals [12]. CL manifests as single or multiple papules, nodules or plaques, which are non-itchy, painless and with or without ulceration, usually over exposed areas of the body ...

To development a reliable murine model of Leishmania braziliensis braziliensis infection, parasites were injected into BALB/c mice in the presence of phlebotomine sand fly salivary gland lysates, which have previously been shown to greatly increase the infectivity of L. major in mice. When injected with salivary gland lysates, L. braziliensis braziliensis produced progressively enlarging cutaneous nodules, containing many macrophages filled with Leishmania amastigotes. In contrast, L. braziliensis injected without gland extracts produced small and rapidly regressing lesions. Isoenzyme analysis, monoclonal antibodies, and the polymerase chain reaction with L. braziliensis-specific oligonucleotide primers and probes confirmed that parasites causing the lesions were L. braziliensis. ...
Abstract Clinical and immunological findings from 35 dogs infected with Leishmania braziliensis braziliensis are described. The majority of the dogs had ulcerated single lesions on the ears. Sera from all infected dogs showed detectable Leishmania-induced antibodies using an indirect fluorescent antibody test. Antimonial therapy resulted in prompt healing of the lesions in 80.9% of the animals followed by a significant reduction in the anti-Leishmania antibody titers. However, treatment follow-up showed recurrences at the site of the primary lesion in 42.8% of the cases. These data were correlated with a persistence of the parasite in clinically healed lesions as well as with a negative intradermal test (leishmanin-delayed type hypersensitivity) observed in all animals but one.
Abstract Microscopic examination is the standard method for diagnosis of cutaneous and mucocutaneous leishmaniasis despite its low sensitivity. This study compared the diagnosis efficacy of microscopic examination versus polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based methods and DNA sequencing using whole blood and skin lesion samples from patients with suspected leishmaniasis. The presence of Leishmania was determined by microscopy and amplification of 18S ribosomal RNA gene from blood and skin samples of 22 patients. Twenty individuals were positive for leishmaniasis. Microscopic analysis identified 85%, whereas PCR identified 100% of positive cases from skin and 90% from blood. Cytochrome b gene (cyt-b) amplification and sequencing identified Leishmania guyanensis, Leishmania shawi, and Leishmania naiffi from skin and blood samples. This study demonstrated the usefulness of whole blood and molecular techniques for the diagnosis and species identification of leishmaniasis.

A Leishmania (Viannia) braziliensis é o agente etiológico de mais de 90% dos casos de leishmanioses cutânea e mucocutânea no Brasil. Apesar da alta freqüência no Brasil, poucos estudos de vacinação estão descritos utilizando esta espécie de Leishmania. Com intuito de iniciar os estudos de vacinação experimental contra as leishmanioses cutânea e mucocutânea causada por L. (V.) braziliensis, isolamos os genes que codificam os antígenos LACK, TSA, LeIF e LbSTI1 desta espécie. Os genes foram caracterizados segundo sua seqüência de DNA e transcrição de mRNA nas diferentes formas do parasita. Observamos alta conservação na seqüência predita de aminoácidos quando comparamos as espécies L. (V.) braziliensis e L. (L.) major com identidades de 83% a 96%. Observamos também a presença de mRNA tanto nas formas promastigotas como amastigotas de L. (V.) braziliensis. Em seguida, inserimos estes genes em vetores para expressão em células eucarióticas e procarióticas. As ...

The power in Montenegro doesnt change for quarter of a century, in fact, it has developed a one-party system with the ruling Democratic Party of Socialists there. It is headed by Milo Djukanovic, who is 26 years at the helm of the Montenegro either as a president or as the prime minister.. Djukanovic considers one of his main achievements is the declaration of Montenegrin independence in 2006 and doesnt get tired to assert the correctness of this decision, allegedly there could be seen increase of the economy, wages and inflow of investments. However, those stories are good only for the Western partners that the current PM is trying to show in every way, saying he is worthy to take a place on EU and NATO Olympus.. In fact, half of the population lives below the absolute poverty, unemployment and corruption exponentialy prospers. The gap between rich and poor increases and, as a consequence, increases public discontent with the policy of ruling elite.. Peoples anger is quite understandable. ...

An effective adaptive immune response requires activation of specific CD4 T cells. The capacity of B cells to activate CD4 T cells in human cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by Leishmania (Viannia) has not been evaluated. CD4 T cell activation by B cells of cutaneous leishmaniasis patients was evaluated by culture of PBMCs or purified B cells and CD4 T cells with Leishmania panamensis antigens. CD4 T cell and B cell activation markers were evaluated by flow cytometry and 13 cytokines were measured in supernatants with a bead-based capture assay. The effect of Leishmania antigens on BCR-mediated endocytosis of ovalbumin was evaluated in the Ramos human B cell line by targeting the antigen with anti-IgM-biotin and anti-biotin-ovalbumin-FITC. Culture of PBMCs from cutaneous leishmaniasis patients with Leishmania antigens resulted in upregulation of the activation markers CD25 and CD69 as well as increased frequency of CD25hiCD127- cells among CD4 T cells. Concomitantly, B cells upregulated the costimulatory
The leishmaniases are multifactorial zoonotic diseases requiring a multidisciplinary One Health approach for diagnosis and control. For leishmaniasis diagnosis, here we describe production of a new recombinant protein based on a kinesin-related gene of Leishmania braziliensis (Lbk39), which shows 59% amino acid identity to the L. infantum homologue. The Lbk39 gene was synthesized, inserted into the pLEXSY-sat2 vector and transfected into L. tarentolae cells by electroporation. Culturing was carried out, and the secreted recombinant protein with a C-terminal histidine tag purified using nickel affinity chromatography on the culture supernatant, yielding a final product at 0.4 mg/mL. An indirect enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was standardised using sera from 74 Brazilian patients with cutaneous leishmaniasis and 11 with visceral leishmaniasis. Optimal ELISA conditions were established for the Lbk39 antigen in comparison with a crude extract from L. braziliensis. The sensitivity, ...
Neutrophils, by interacting with monocytes, dendritic cells, T cells, and B cells, through cell-cell contact or secreted products, drive inflammatory responses involved in host defense and tissue repair (7). Neutrophils have been shown to play an active role in the control of infections with specific and distinct pathogens such as Legionella (17), Toxoplasma (27), Mycobacterium (28), Entamoeba (29), Histoplasma (30), and Cryptosporidium (31). BALB/c mice infected in the ear dermis with L. braziliensis develop cutaneous lesions at the site of inoculation and histological analyses of infected ear sections have demonstrated a constant recruitment of neutrophils to the inoculation site (14). Since in this experimental model ear lesions heal spontaneously, we hypothesized that neutrophils exert a protective effect. Data presented herein collectively indicate that live neutrophils play an important yet unresolved role during experimental infection with Lb: in vivo neutrophil depletion increased lesion ...

Responsible for up to 30,000 deaths annually, leishmaniasis is a complex spectrum of diseases endemic in 97 countries around the globe. Disease control relies heavily on the early diagnosis and treatment of the active cases (relevant for anthroponotic disease), although it is widely accepted that a prophylactic vaccine for human leishmaniasis is the way to achieve the successful elimination of human disease (taking in consideration the vast list of non-human reservoirs that enable the perpetuation of parasites all around the globe). The notion that infection leads to strong and long-lasting immunity against leishmaniasis supports vaccination as an achievable goal. However, and in spite of the different candidates tested along the years, till date, we still do not have an approved vaccine for humans. In this chapter, we will explore the last advances made in the field of vaccines against Leishmania without forgetting the historical perspective, essential to the understanding of the road already undergone
