Antigenic variation during Trypanosoma vivax infections of different host species.

  volume={92 ( Pt 1)},
The sequence of appearance of specific lytic activity against more than 20 variable antigen types (VATs) of Trypanosoma vivax in the serum of 27 animals belonging to 5 species has been examined. For each host species there was a characteristic course of infection, with differences in height and duration of parasitaemia and in pathogenicity. The sequence of antigenic variation was similar in all host species, with some VATs consistently eliciting response more rapidly than others. The… CONTINUE READING
