  1. We evaluated mice (from UFF) infection with L. amazonensis using Josefa strain or LV78 strain. The results of the Student’s t-test for lesion size from different times (days post-infection) with peak of infection are shown; see also Fig. 2
  2. Abbreviations: DPI days post-infection, UFF Universidade Federal Fluminense
  3. aPeak of infection at day 49 post-infection
  4. bPeak of infection at day 55 post-infection
