MONTOYA, Ysabel et al. Diagnóstico molecular para Leishmaniasis. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 1997, vol.14, n.1, pp.25-28. ISSN 1726-4634.

The potential diagnosis of selected immunodominant epitopes was successfully assessed as an alternate serodiagnostic tool for American Tegumentary Leishmaniasis (ATL). Two provisory recombinant proteins of L. (V) peruviana referred to as T26-U2/T26-U4 were recognized by individual sera from ATL patients using Western blot. This test sensitivity was 86% with peruvian leishmaniasis sera.

Keywords : Western blot; sera; Leishmania; Leishmaniasis.
