Abstract

During a serological survey in 1996, a total of 601 dogs (group I) distributed all over the government controlled southern area of Cyprus was examined using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the presence of specific antibodies directed against soluble antigens of promastigote stages of Leishmania infantum. The overall seroprevalence rate in this group was 1.7%. A second group (group II) of dogs was selected from regions where seropositive dogs where determined within the first group. In group II specific anti-Leishmania antibodies could be detected in 30 of 301 dogs investigated (10%). The highest seroprevalence rates were found in the regions of Agios Georgios (26.2%) and Limnatis (12.2%). Ten parasite isolates from ten dogs (six with typical symptoms of canine leishmaniosis and four without symptoms) originating from five locations could be characterised by zymodeme analysis. All ten isolates were identified as L. infantum zymodeme MON 1.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
