Human African Trypanosomiasis is still a public health threat in Cameroon. To assess Trypanosoma brucei strains circulating in the Fontem sleeping sickness focus, we conducted a genetic structure study using microsatellites to assess genotypes cir...

A population of Glossina palpalis palpalis was studied for 4 years in an area of Zaire with a high incidence of Trypanosoma gambiense and compared with a population in a region virtually free of sleeping sickness.

In a study in an area affected by an epidemic of Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense (T. rhodesiense) in Busoga Province, Uganda, in February 1981, Glossina fuscipes fuscipes Newst. was found to have a high man-fly contact rate and was the only tsetse...

The first results of a 3-month tsetse trapping investigation in the reviving sleeping sickness focus of Nola-Bilolo, Central African Republic, are presented. Eleven villages were investigated during January-March 1991 (end of the dry season). The...
