Serological investigations for Chagas' disease in Trinidad

Serological investigations for Chagas' disease in Trinidad

West Indian Medical Journal 40(1): 22-25

A total of 512 sera was examined, using the indirect fluorescent antibody test, for antibodies to Trypanosoma cruzi. No positive reactions were detected even for samples from individuals with related cardiac symptoms. These findings suggest that there is little or no human transmission of T. cruzi occurring in the island of Trinidad.
