PCR-based detection of Trypanosoma cruzi useful for specific diagnosis of human Chagas' disease


Journal of Clinical Microbiology 34(2): 485-486
PCR-based detection of Trypanosoma cruzi useful for specific diagnosis of human Chagas' disease
A 24-kDa (Tc24) Trypanosoma cruzi recombinant antigen has been used in the serodiagnosis of Chagas' disease. A Tc24-based PCR was developed and used for the diagnosis of human Chagas' disease:17 blood samples were collected from children living in an endemic area of Bolivia. All 17 serologically-positive samples were also positive by PCR.
