Monitoring of Parasite Kinetics in Indian Post–Kala-azar Dermal Leishmaniasis Srija Moulik, Surya Jyati Chaudhuri, Bikash Sardar, Manab Ghosh, Bibhuti Saha, Nilay Kanti Das, and Mitali Chatterjee The potential reservoirs of leishmaniasis in South Asia include relapsed cases of visceral leishmaniasis (VL), patients with post–kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis (PKDL), and an asymptomatically infected population. Therefore, assessment of cure in terms of parasite clearance, early detection of PKDL, and asymptomatic VL are pivotal for ensuring elimination. This study aimed to monitor the efficacy of miltefosine and liposomal amphotericin B (LAmB) in PKDL based on parasite load.
