In this article, Alberto Frasch and Maria Reyes discuss the development of new tools for the serodiagnosis of Chagas disease (caused by Trypanosoma cruzi) and describe recombinant antigens that have proved to be of great diagnostic potential in distinguishing different stages of the disease. The work is important because different treatment strategies are… CONTINUE READING
