Abstract:   (1951 Views)
In this study, we used Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD) for identification of 17 isolates of Leishmania from the skin and reticuloendothelial system of humans, animal reservoirs (rodent and dog) and sandflies in various parts of Iran in the last decade. Fifteen species have been confirmed by isoenzyme characterization by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and Shiraz University of Medical Sciences. In this study, strong confirmation has been observed between random amplified polymorphic DNA with isoenzyme characterization.
