Abstract

Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) is the most severe clinical form of leishmaniasis and can fatal if not treated. Infected dogs are potential reservoirs of the illness and a specific diagnosis is required for the identification of the infected animals in order to promote better epidemiology control. The development of a more sensible and specific diagnostic test is important for detention of potential reservoirs, especially in Brazil where the infected animals are euthanized. In literature, many works disagree about the specificity of the tests currently used. This work has as objective to report the isolation and test of a Leishmania infantun (syn = chagasi) specific gene called Lc 06, which expression product, the protein rLc 06, could be a potential epitope for the development of a new diagnostic method.
