Vaginal secretions from 508 women were examined for evidence of infection by Trichomonas vaginalis, and for antibodies directed against this organism; 42 women (8-3 per cent.) were found to be infected. Secretions from 29 of these women were assayed and antibody apparently directed against T. vaginalis was found in 22 (76 per cent.) of them. Eight out of(More)
The miniature anion-exchange/centrifugation (AEC) method, originally developed for the detection of submicroscopic trypanosomaemias in laboratory rodents, has been adapted for the diagnosis of trypanosomiasis in man in the field using blood samples obtained by finger-prick. It has been tested in a survey in The Gambia. The method is shown to be highly(More)
The diagnosis of Trichomonas vaginalis (Donne, 1837) infection by direct recognition of the parasite is comparatively easy in the acute phase in the female, more difficult in the male and in the female in the non-acute phase. Because of this difficulty conclusive epidemiological studies on T. vaginalis infection are few. Burch, Rees, and Reardon (1959) have(More)
Information concerning habitat, body size, reproductive status, and diet was recorded from 348 greater galagos, captured at six different localities in Tanzania and southern Africa between 1953 and 1955. The localities extended from Pemba Island in the north to Chikwawa, Malawi, in the south and varied broadly in the same order in degree of climatic(More)
