Zahra Rezaei; Gholamreza Pouladfar; Amin Ramezani; Zohreh Mostafavi-Pour; Amin Abbasian; Bahador Sarkari; Bahman Pourabbas

Volume 16, Issue 4 , Autumn 2019, , Pages 311-320


  Background: Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) can lead to death in more than 95% of cases if left untreated. Accurate and early diagnosis has an important role in reducing mortality rate of this disease. Objective: To express recombinant H2B antigen from an Iranian isolate of Leishmania Infantum and evaluate ...  Read More

2. Vaccination with Live Attenuated L. Major and TLR4 Agonist Promotes a Th1 Immune Response and Induces Protection against L. Major Infection in BALB/c Mice

Shamsi Noorpisheh Ghadimi; Shirin Farjadian; Gholam Reza Hatam; Mehdi Kalani; Bahador Sarkari

Volume 15, Issue 2 , Spring 2018, , Pages 74-83


  Background: Toll like receptors play a major role in immune responses against Leishmania parasites. Objective: To evaluate the efficacy of vaccination with live attenuated L. major and TLR4 agonist in protection against L. major infection. Methods: Attenuated L. major was prepared by continuous sub-culturing ...  Read More

3. Performance of Latex Agglutination Test (KAtex) In Diagnosis of Visceral Leishmaniasis in Iran

Mohammad Amin Ghatei; Gholamreza Hatam; Seyed Mohammad Hossein Hosseini; Bahador Sarkari

Volume 6, Issue 4 , Autumn 2009, , Pages 202-207

  Background: Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) is an endemic disease in some parts of Iran. Many techniques have been used for diagnosis of VL, among which the urine based la-tex agglutination test (KAtex) is a promising one. Objective: To compare three diag-nostic tests of VL including KAtex, ELISA and Direct ...  Read More

4. Evaluation of Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay, Utilizing Native Antigen B for Serodiagnosis of Human Hydatidosis

Seyed Mahmoud Sadjjadi; Hassan Abidi; Bahador Sarkari; Ahmad Izadpanah; Sakineh Kazemian

Volume 4, Issue 3 , Autumn 2007, , Pages 167-172

  Background: Hydatidosis is one of the cosmopolitan parasitic zoonoses caused by the larval stage of Echinococcus granulosus. Diagnosis of hydatidosis is still an unresolved problem. Serological tests using crude antigens for diagnosis of E. granulosus are sensi-tive, however their specificity are not ...  Read More

5. Comparison of Serological Methods (ELISA, DAT and IFA) for Diagnosis of Visceral Leishmaniasis Utilizing an Endemic Strain

Fattaneh Mikaeili; Mahdi Fakhar; Bahador Sarkari; Mohammad H. Motazedian; Gholamreza Hatam

Volume 4, Issue 2 , Spring 2007, , Pages 116-121

  Background: The causative agent of visceral leishmaniasis (VL) in Iran is Leishmania infantum (L. infantum) (Mediterranean type) and its major reservoir host is the dog. Ob-jective: To compare the serological methods including direct agglutination test (DAT), indirect immunofluorescent-antibody test ...  Read More
