The sedimentation rate in the African peasant with special reference to trypanosomiasis



The sedimentation rate in the African peasant with special reference to trypanosomiasis



Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 41(2): 217-240



In Nigeria, the normal S. R. of natives is 6 times as high as is that of Europeans. The S. R. for cases of trypanosomiasis is still higher. In infected women the rate is slightly higher than it is in infected men. The rate is also higher in new infections than it is in cases of reinfection. Treatment reduces the S. R. rapidly to normal levels. A pronounced fall of the S. R. on the administration of antrypol is to be regarded as a definite indication of the presence of the trypanosomes and can therefore be used as a routine diagnostic method.
