Host-parasite interactions: regulation of parasitaemia in animals infected with Trypanosoma brucei organisms

Host-parasite interactions: regulation of parasitaemia in animals infected with Trypanosoma brucei organisms

Trypanotolerance and animal production Proceedings of the Workshop 10-14 May 1982, Lome et Avetonou, Togo Schriftenreihe der GTZ No116: 135-142

The rate of differentiation of T. brucei from rapidly dividing slender forms to non-dividing stumpy forms influences the parasite growth rate and the kinetics of induction of antibody responses. Antibody responses are induced by senescent T. brucei which arise from the stumpy form population and are not induced by dividing organisms.
