Abstract

The course of infection with T. congolense alone or with T. brucei and T. vivax in zebu was studied in Uganda under conditions simulating natural infection by tsetse flies. The trypanosomes were collected from tsetse flies (mainly Glossina pallidipes) caught in eastern Uganda. Whether the infection ...
