Vetores de tripanosomatídeos (Kinetoplastida: Trypanosomatidae) em Tabatinga, Amazonas, Brasil

Abstract: ResumoOs flebotomíneos transmitem doenças a humanos e animais, como as arboviroses e bartonelose, além das leishmanioses. O objetivo desta pesquisa foi identificar possíveis espécies de flebotomíneos vetores da doença nessa região no município de Tabatinga. Flebotomíneos foram capturados com armadilhas luminosas e em coletas manuais por aspiração em bases das árvores. Nos meses de agosto dos anos 2010 e 2011, foram capturados 4.542 flebotomíneos (♂: 71,9% e ♀: 28,1%) vetores ou suspeitos de transmitirem tripan… Show more

“…There have been few studies on natural infection by Leishmania in the Amazonas state, and most involved the dissection of individual sand flies to detect the presence of trypanosomatid forms [ 10 , 11 , 16 , 39 , 46 , 47 ]. The detection of Leishmania using molecular methods such as PCR has been performed in only two other studies of the Amazonas [ 7 , 9 ].…”

“…American Tegumentary Leishmaniasis (ATL) is a zoonosis of worldwide distribution, whose etiological agents are protozoa of the genus Leishmania spp. This contemplates at least seven dermotropic species of relevance to public health in Brazil, these being: Leishmania (Viannia) guyanensis; L. (V.) naiffi; L. (V.) braziliensis; L. (V.) lainsoni; L. (V.) shawi; L. (V.) lindenbergi e L. (Leishmania) amazonensis (SILVEIRA et al, 2008;SOARES et al, 2017;BRASIL, 2017). However, the species Leishmania (V) braziliensis is considered the main etiologic agent involved in the Brazilian territory.…”
