Okuda K, Silverman N. Drosophila Model of Leishmania amazonensis Infection. Bio Protoc. 2017 Dec 5;7(23). pii: e2640. PMID: 29276726; PMCID: PMC5738924.

The abstract: "This protocol describes how to generate and harvest antibody-free L. amazonensis amastigotes, and how to infect adult Drosophila melanogaster with these parasites. This model recapitulates key aspects of the interactions between Leishmania amastigotes and animal phagocytes."
