Abstract:Exoantigens (exo) from Leptomonas seymouri and Crithidia
fasciculata were used in an enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA),
showing 100% reactivity with sera from visceral leishmaniasis (VL) cases, and no
reactivity with American tegumentary leishmaniasis (ATL) ones. Our results have
indicated that these exoantigens can be applied in the discrimination of VL and ATL
