 en Leishmanial Infection: Analysis of its First Steps. a review
MC de Almeida; V Vilhena; A Barral & M Barral-Netto

Abstract

The first steps in leishmaniasis are critical in determining the evolution of the disease. Major advances have recently been done in understanding this crucial moment. Fundamental research in parasite-vector interaction, parasite biology, insect saliva, and vertebrate host response have shed new light and uncovered a most fascinating and complex moment in leishmaniasis. We review here some of these aspects and we try to connect them in a logical framework.
