In the study to analyze the pathophysiology of chronic salivarian trypanosomosis, the infection of rabbits with Trypanosoma brucei brucei produced a three-phase alteration of serum lipid and lipoprotein profiles. In the earliest stages, during the first 2 weeks post-infection (p.i.), serum triglycerides and very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) began to increase, high density lipoproteins (HDL) began to decrease, while a more rapid increase was observed in low density lipoproteins (LDL).
