ABSTRACT

SEROPREVALENCE OF DOGS TO LEISHMANIA INFANTUM ANTIGENS IN THE TERITORY OF CRNA GORA

Due to expansion of vector borne diseases and their importance for human health, we have investigated the prevalence of antibodies to Leishmania infantum antigens in serum samples of dogs. Leishmaniasis is a disease caused by protozoan parasites of the genus Leishmania. According to the World Health Organization the disease is a constant threat to 350 million people in 88 countries, provided that most Mediterranean countries belong to the area designated as endemic.
