Study TypeOther
Abstract Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) treatment relies on a few chemotherapeutic drugs including Sb(V),amphotericin B and miltefosine. Miltefosine has been highly active against VL in India. However,susceptibility differences to miltefosine have been observed in clinically relevant Leishmaniaspecies. Miltefos .. [more]
