Abstract
In 25 cattle experimentally infected with Trypanosoma congolense and in 25 with T. vivax the serum levels of total protein albumin, haemolytic complement and complement component C3 were reduced compared with those of 25 non-infected controls. Haemolytic complement was reduced to 20% normal level by T. congolense and to 5% by T. vivax, the reduction beginning with the first peak of parasitaemia.
