Influence of heat stress on experimental Trypanosoma brucei brucei infection in mice



Influence of heat stress on experimental Trypanosoma brucei brucei infection in mice



Annales de la Societe Belge de Medecine Tropicale 66(2): 161-166



Influence of heat stress on parasitaeemia, mortality rate and trypanosome morphology was studied in inbred C3H/HE mice following IP inoculation of 500 metacyclic forms of Trypanosoma brucei brucei (EATRO 1125/AnTAR 1). One group was kept at 35.degree.C, the other one at room temperature. No significant differences were observed in mortality rate, neither in the evolution of the parasitaemia levels, nor in parasite pleomorphism. Both unstressed and heat stressed mice showed a sharp increase in long slender forms before death.
