To LeishNet newsgroup members:

We are developing two rapid ELISAs to detect antibodies to Visceral
Leishmaniasis.  In order to assess the sensitivity and the specificity of the
tests, human antibodies (serum or plasma) to VL are needed.  We would like to
procure these, as well as any crossreacting antibodies for this purpose.  We
would appreciate any help offered.  This includes human sera, antigen, recent
literature and comments. 

This message was originally sent a few months ago, but there was no response,
so I suspect that it got lost on the Internet somewhere.
