Free fatty acids and pathogenesis of African trypanosomiasis



Free fatty acids and pathogenesis of African trypanosomiasis



Lancet 1(8014): 750-751



From a review of the literature it is suggested that pathological effects produced by African trypanosomes may be caused by the release of free fatty acids from these organisms. Reasons are advanced as to why the binding the neutralization of free fatty acids by serum albumin may be diminished in trypansomiasis.
