Abstract

Abstract

A review of the epidemiologic aspects of the New World leishmaniases, including their known geographic distribution, etiologic agents, zoonotic reservoirs, and insect vectors, based on biological and molecular characterization of isolates is presented. Data summarized in this paper on parasite taxonomy and geographic distribution come from our studies of > 1,000 New World isolates identified by species-specific monoclonal antibodies using an indirect radioimmune binding assay and from scientific literature.
