INTRODUCTION

Visceral leishmaniasis, or Kala-azar, is a disseminated infection caused by several subspecies of the L. donovani. The disease is estimated by the World Health Organization (WHO) to affect approximately 12 million people in 88 countries1. It is transmitted to humans

by bites of the Phlebotomus sandflies, which acquire infection from feeding on infected animals. Though it is a disease found in poor countries, in Southern Europe, it has become the leading opportunistic infection in AIDS patients2-3. Identification of L. donovani organism from the blood, bone marrow, liver, lymph nodes or the spleen provides a definite mean of diagnosis. Serological detection of anti-L. donovani IgM is found to be an excellent marker for the acute Visceral leishmaniasis. Tests used in clinic are included ELISA,fluorescent antibody or direct agglutination tests 4-5

protein in the test has improved the sensitivity and specificity dramatically6-7

The Leishmania IgG/IgM Rapid Test is a rapid test that utilizes a combination of Leishmania antigen coated colored particles for the detection of IgG and IgM to L. Donovani antibodies in human whole blood, serum, or plasma.

INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS

IgG Positive:* The colored line in the control line region (C) appears, and a colored line appears in test line region G The result is positive for Leishmania  specific-IgG and is probably indicative of secondary Leishmania infection.

IgM Positive:* The colored line in the control line region (C) appears, and a colored line appears in test line region M. The result is positive for Leishmania  specific-IgM antibodies and is indicative of primary Leishmania infection.

IgG and IgM Positive:* The colored line in the control line region (C) appears, and two colored lines should appear in test line regions G and M. The color intensities of the lines do not have to match. The result is positive for IgG & IgM antibodies and is indicative of secondary Leishmania infection.

*NOTE: The intensity of the color in the test line region(s) (G and/or M) will vary depending on the concentration of Leishmania antibodies in the specimen. Therefore, any shade of color in the test line region(s) (G and/or M) should be considered positive.

Negative: Only one colored band appears in the control region (C). No line appears in test line regions G or M. 

INVALID: No Control line (C) appears. Insufficient buffer volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for control line failure. Review the procedure and repeat the procedure with a new test device. If the problem persists, discontinue using the test kit immediately and contact your local distributor
