Title
Culture-independent species typing of neotropical **Leishmania** for clinical validation of a PCR-based assay targeting heat shock protein 70 genes
Author
Abstract
PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of heat shock protein 70 genes discriminates most neotropical Leishmania species, as well as Trypanosoma cruzi. The assay, combined with capillary electrophoresis in a microchip device, may be applied directly on clinical samples with a high sensitivity, hence supporting clinical and epidemiological monitoring of leishmaniasis.
