Updated estimate of the duration of the meningo-encephalitic stage in gambiense human African trypanosomiasis
The report reviews key players involved in the therapeutics development for African Trypanosomiasis
and enlists all their major and minor projects
Suppressor macrophages in African trypanosomiasis
inhibit T cell proliferative responses by nitric oxide and prostaglandins.
A combination of nifurtimox and eflornithine has shown promising results in the treatment of second stage of African trypanosomiasis
(18), but its use is marred by dangerous side-effects.
We present a case of African Trypanosomiasis
from Liberia in a middle-aged individual having nonspecific symptoms.
4) These include schistosomiasis, soil transmitted helminths (STH), trachoma, lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciaisis (most prevalent), leishmaniasis, human African trypanosomiasis
(low prevalence), dracunculisis, leprosy and buruli ulcer.
There are two types of African Sleeping Sickness/ Human African Trypanosomiasis
(HAT), which cause distinct clinical features.
Cluster of African trypanosomiasis
in travellers to Tanzanian national parks.
Human African trypanosomiasis
(HAT) can be categorized into West and East African trypanosomiasis
and is endemic in sub-Saharan Africa with a population at risk of about 60 million people [2,3].
In many regions, for instance, first-choice therapy for late-stage human African trypanosomiasis
(HAT, or sleeping sickness) is still based on melarsoprol, an arsenic-derived drug developed in the late 19th century that can lead to fatal encephalopathy in 5% of patients.
The work to be presented represents basic research designed to identify potential drug therapy targets for African trypanosomiasis
Specifically, East African trypanosomiasis
is caused by T.
