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. A Leishmania infantum FML-ELISA for the Detection of Symptomatic and Asymptomatic Canine Visceral Leishmaniasis in an Endemic Area of Iran

Behnam Mohammadi-Ghalehbin; Gholam Reza Hatam; Bahador Sarkari; Mehdi Mohebali; Zabih Zarei; Mansoureh Jaberipour; Shahab Bohlouli

Volume 8, Issue 4 , Autumn 2011, , Pages 244-250

  Background: Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) is caused by Leishmania infantum in Mediterranean basin and is an endemic disease in some parts of Iran. Canines are the main reservoirs of VL in most of the endemic areas. Different serological methods have been introduced for diagnosis of canine visceral leishmaniasis ...  Read More

Volume 8, Issue 3 , Summer 2011, , Pages 150-158

  Background: A β-mercaptoethnol (β-ME)-treated promastigote antigen of L. donovani was successfully employed in direct agglutination test (DAT) for the diagnosis of visceral leishmaniasis (VL). Objective: The β-ME-treated antigen was further incorporated into an enzyme-linked immunosorbent ...  Read More

4. 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

5. Qualitative and Semi-Quantitative Comparison of an Rk39 Strip Test and Direct Agglutination Test for Detection of Anti-Leishmania Donovani Antibodies in the Sudan

Durria Mansour; Elfadil M. Abass; Abdelhafeiz Mahamoud; Abdallah el Harith

Volume 6, Issue 4 , Autumn 2009, , Pages 208-215

  Background: Until now, the comparison of the rK39 strip test (RKT) and direct ag-glutination test (DAT) for detection of visceral leishmaniasis (VL) is exclusively based on either positive or negative qualification of the reaction outcome. Objective: In this study, we compared the diagnostic performance ...  Read More

6. 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
