Figure 6. Seroprevalence of “Leptospira licerasiae” serovar Varillal in acute febrile patients in Iquitos, Peruvian Amazon (n = 881).. From: Human Leptospirosis Caused by a New, Antigenically Unique Leptospira Associated with a Rattus Species Reservoir in the Peruvian Amazon.

Var 10 = “Leptospira licerasiae” serovar Varillal strain VAR 010T. Criteria for serological diagnosis of acute Leptospira infection: 1) IgM positive by ELISA in either acute or convalescent sera; 2) Conversion in the microscopic agglutination test (MAT) from negative to positive (1∶100 or greater); 3) Single MAT titer of 1:800 or greater; or 4) Four-fold rise in MAT titer.

Figure 5. Real time quantitative PCR analysis of experimental leptospiral infections of hamsters.. From: Human Leptospirosis Caused by a New, Antigenically Unique Leptospira Associated with a Rattus Species Reservoir in the Peruvian Amazon.

HAI188 and HAI156, strains L. interrogans serogroups Icterohaemorrhagiae and Canicola isolated from patients in Iquitos, Peru. VAR10, “L. licerasiae” serovar Varillal strain VAR 010T. HAI188 and HAI156 caused a severe moribund state at days 4–5; none of the animals with VAR 010T exhibited any signs of illness. Three 25 mg samples of each tissue were analyzed and error bars indicate the standard deviations of these three samples per tissue.

Figure 2. Phylogram of leptospiral 16S rRNA gene sequences generated by Bayesian phylogenetic analysis with simultaneous runs of 3,000,000 generations.. From: Human Leptospirosis Caused by a New, Antigenically Unique Leptospira Associated with a Rattus Species Reservoir in the Peruvian Amazon.

Bootstrap confidence in assigning branch points is indicated at each node. For clarity, the intermediate clade of leptospires is placed on top, with the L. licerasiae strains first; the intermediates, pathogens and saprophytes groups of Leptospira are indicated at the right. Leptonema is used as the outgroup for comparison. The scale bar (upper left) shows the fractional difference in 16S rRNA gene nucleotide sequences. GenBank accession numbers are indicated to the right of each strain analyzed.
