A new approach for the pathogenesis of human African trypanosomiasis



A new approach for the pathogenesis of human African trypanosomiasis



Bulletin de la Societe de Pathologie Exotique 87(5): 319-322



A molecule was isolated from Trypanosoma brucei brucei which triggered the production of IFN- gamma by CD8+ T-cells. IFN- gamma modulates events in the immune and nervous systems of the host, providing a growth stimulus for the parasites. Furthermore, a molecule with IFN- gamma -like immunoreactivity was detected in dorsal root ganglion cells and certain neurons in the brains of rats.
