Heart rate changes in rats with acute Chagasic myocarditis



Heart rate changes in rats with acute Chagasic myocarditis



Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 82(6): 851



Heart rate changes were monitored over 60 days in 70 rats inoculated ip with 200 000 Trypanosoma cruzi Y strain parasites. The heart rate progressively increased and reached a plateau between days 14 and 21 after inoculation. The hearts of 8 rats killed at this time showed diffuse myocarditis; parasites were present in 6 hearts. After day 22, the heart rate returned to normal.
