Abstract

Surra disease is a zoonosis caused by Trypanosoma (Trypanozoon) evansi, a salivary trypanosome, originally from Africa, which affects a wide range of mammalian worldwide. Dogs are highly susceptible to T. evansi infection and they often exhibit strong clinical signs than can lead to death, even...

Abstract

Thiolases are enzymes that remove an acetyl-coenzyme A group from acyl-CoA in the catabolic β-oxidation of fatty acids, or catalyse the reverse condensation reaction for anabolic processes such as the biosynthesis of sterols and ketone bodies. In humans, six homologous isoforms of thiolase have...

Abstract

Genetic exchange in the Trypanosomatidae is reviewed, in the following sections: laboratory experiments on genetic exchange (experimental crosses of Trypanosoma brucei, and a shorter section on other trypanosomatids); evidence from population genetics and evolutionary studies (methods, and evidence ...

Abstract

The history of the impact of the trypanosomiases on the movement of man and his animals into Africa is reviewed. The discoveries and classification of the trypanosomes and their hosts are recapitulated. Diagnostic methods are detailed. Nagana is discussed as the type, with reference to symptoms,...

Abstract

This paper attempts to trace the probable evolution of mammalian trypanosomes. Haemato-phagous insects probably originated from phytophagous and/or predaceous ancestors, the trypano-somatid parasites of which eventually gave rise to trypanosomes. Trypanosomes transmitted by inoculation...

Abstract

This article draws attention to the previous work of the authors on the nature of the therapeutic action of certain drugs, and on the phenomena of drug-fastness and interference, by methods based on the detection of drug absorption by trypanosomes by their acquisition of photosensitiveness, by the...

Abstract

This article records experiments on the trypanosome response to the action of drugs in mice in which the defence mechanism had been eliminated by splenectomy and the intravenous injection of electro-colloidal copper. In non-splenecto-mized mice the administration of minimum doses of trypanocidal...
