Figure 2. From: Assessment of Interferon-? Levels and Leishmanin Skin Test Results in Persons Recovered for Leishmaniasis.

Linear regression of log 2 values of the interferon-γ (IFN-γ response compared with leishmanin skin test indurations for Leishmania antigen A (Leish) A and Leish B in area of Iran endemic for zoonotic cutaneous leishmaniasis (ZCL-1) (panels 1 and 2), for Leish A and Leish C in areas endemic for ZCL-2 (panel 3 and 4), in areas endemic for anthroponotic cutaneous leishmaniasis (ACL) (panels 5 and 6), and in areas endemic for zoonotic visceral leishmaniasis (ZVL) (panel 7 and 8). No statistically significant correlation was found between leishmanin skin test indurations and IFN-γ responses of persons from different areas.

Figure 1. From: Assessment of Interferon-? Levels and Leishmanin Skin Test Results in Persons Recovered for Leishmaniasis.

Mean concentration of interferon-γ (IFN-γ against Leishmania antigen A (Leish) A and Leish C antigens in persons cured of zoonotic cutaneous leishmaniasis (ZCL), anthroponotic cutaneous leishmaniasis (ACL), and zoonotic visceral leishmaniasis (ZVL) in leishmaniasis-endemic areas in Iran, according to the time of assay in relation to recovery from the disease. The IFN-γ response to either Leish A or Leish C did not vary in persons from the ZCL area throughout the study. The magnitude of the IFN-γ response in persons from the ZVL area was significantly higher than that of persons from the ACL area against Leish A (P = 0.003, by t-test) and Leish C (P = 0.030, by t-test) during the early period (1–12 months post-recovery). However for ZCL, the difference was only significant for Leish A (P = 0.017) during the same period. No significant difference was seen in other periods between persons from different regions. *P = 0.017 and 0.030; **P = 0.003.
