The transmission of Trypanosoma cruzi by vectors is confined to the Americas, and the infection circulates in at least two broadly defined transmission cycles occurring in domestic and sylvatic habitats. This study sought to detect and characterize infection by T. cruzi and other trypanosomes using PCR strategies in blood samples from free-ranging howler monkeys, Alouatta caraya, in the northeastern Argentina. Blood samples were collected at four sites with variable levels of habitat… Expand

TLDR
This result constitutes the first record of natural T. cruzi infection in a sylvatic monkey in Paraguay, harbouring a DTU associated with severe Chagas disease in humans. Expand
Uncovering Trypanosoma spp. diversity of wild mammals by the use of DNA from blood clots
TLDR
The use of blood clots allowed direct access to non-culturable parasites, mixed infections, besides bypassing the selective pressure on the parasites inherent to cultivation procedures, and allowed the increase of the knowledge about host-spectrum and distribution of Trypanosoma spp. Expand
Helminth parasites of howler and spider monkeys in Mexico: Insights into molecular diagnostic methods and their importance for zoonotic diseases and host conservation
TLDR
A parasite survey of the three species of primates distributed in Mexico is presented, combining non-invasive sampling with molecular techniques via DNA extraction of the eggs found in the faeces, allowing a more accurate parasite diagnosis and a more precise evaluation of their zoonotic potential. Expand
High Trypanosoma spp. diversity is maintained by bats and triatomines in Espírito Santo state, Brazil
TLDR
The ecology of an area in the Atlantic Forest, southeast Brazil, where Chagas disease has been found to occur is re evaluated to show that CD cases can occur without an enzootic cycle near residential areas and show that the host specificity of the Trypanosoma genus should be thoroughly reviewed. Expand
Development and evaluation of a duplex TaqMan qPCR assay for detection and quantification of Trypanosoma cruzi infection in domestic and sylvatic reservoir hosts
TLDR
This duplex qPCR assay provides an accurate laboratory tool for screening and quantification of Trypanosoma cruzi infection in a vast repertoire of domestic and wild mammalian reservoir species, contributing to improve molecular epidemiology studies of T. cruzi transmission cycles. Expand
Zoonotic Blood-Borne Pathogens in Non-Human Primates in the Neotropical Region: A Systematic Review
Background: Understanding which non-human primates (NHPs) act as a wild reservoir for blood-borne pathogens will allow us to better understand the ecology of diseases and the role of NHPs in theExpand
A lineage-specific rapid diagnostic test (Chagas Sero K-SeT) identifies Brazilian Trypanosoma cruzi II/V/VI reservoir hosts among diverse mammalian orders
TLDR
The Chagas Sero K-SeT RDT can replace ELISAs and provides efficient, point-of-sampling, low-cost detection of TcII/V/VI infections, with at least equivalent sensitivity, although some mammals may be difficult to trap, and, not unexpectedly, ChagAs Sera K- SeT could not recognise feline IgG. Expand
Trypanosomatid Infections among Vertebrates of Chile: A Systematic Review
TLDR
A systematic review of literature records published from 1900 to April 2020 on four databases, focusing on the 21 genera of trypanosomatids and Chile, found 29,756 records but only 71 presented relevant information for this review. Expand
Serological evidence of equine infectious anaemia, West Nile fever, surra and equine piroplasmosis in a herd of horses in northern Argentina.
TLDR
The data from this survey conducted on a small number of animals illustrate the need for an effective application of surveillance programmes and control measures for equine diseases in northern Argentina and constitute, to the authors' knowledge, the first report of horses simultaneously seropositive for EIA, WNF, surra and equine piroplasmosis.

Molecular identification of trypanosomatids in wild animals.
TLDR
These results demonstrated the first report of T. cruzi isolation in wild species from the CCWF using blood culture, which can be applied in addition to molecular tools for epidemiological studies and to identify trypanosomatids in wild animals. Expand
Differentiation of Trypanosoma cruzi and Trypanosoma rangeli of Colombia using minicircle hybridization tests.
TLDR
The usefulness of PCR amplification of the minicircles followed by Southern blot analysis to differentiate T. cruzi from T. rangeli, which can be highly important to improve diagnosis of Chagas disease, is demonstrated. Expand
Trypanosoma cruzi Infection in Neotropical Wild Carnivores (Mammalia: Carnivora): At the Top of the T. cruzi Transmission Chain
TLDR
Findings corroborate the coati can be a bioaccumulator of T. cruzi Discrete Typing Units (DTU) and may act as a transmission hub, a connection point joining sylvatic transmission cycles within terrestrial and arboreal mammals and vectors. Expand
Infection rates and genotypes of Trypanosoma rangeli and T. cruzi infecting free-ranging Saguinus bicolor (Callitrichidae), a critically endangered primate of the Amazon Rainforest.
TLDR
This is the first survey of trypanosomiasis in a critically endangered species of tamarin, Saguinus bicolor (Callitrichidae), from the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest, where Trypanosoma cruzi and T. rangeli are commonly infective to non-human primates and several mammals. Expand
Prevalence and Molecular Phylogenetic Characterization of Trypanosoma (Megatrypanum) Minasense in the Peripheral Blood of Small Neotropical Primates After a Quarantine Period
TLDR
The molecular phylogenetic characterization of T.minasense indicated that T. minasense is closely related to trypanosomes with Trypanosoma theileri-like morphology and is distinct from Try Panosoma (Tejeraia) rangeli, as well as from T. cruzi. Expand
[Contribution to knowledge of reservoirs of Trypanosoma cruzi (Chagas, 1909) in Corrientes Province, Argentina].
TLDR
The presence in a forest area of Didelphis albiventris, potential reservoir of the parasite, indicates a risk factor and deserves further epidemiological study for a true diagnosis of this endemic infection. Expand
Trypanosoma rangeli: discrimination from Trypanosoma cruzi based on a variable domain from the large subunit ribosomal RNA gene.
TLDR
The potential field application of multiplex PCR was further demonstrated by identification of the two parasite species in samples containing intestinal tract and feces of triatomines and the D7a domain of several trypanosomatids employing primers complementary to the conserved flanking regions was amplified.

Trypanosoma cruzi IIc: Phylogenetic and Phylogeographic Insights from Sequence and Microsatellite Analysis and Potential Impact on Emergent Chagas Disease
TLDR
It is shown that TcIIc is truly a discrete T. cruzi lineage, that it could have an ancient origin and that diversity occurs within the terrestrial niche independently of the host species, and it is suggested that the derived Tc IIc population genetic data have a vital role in determining the origin of the epidemiologically important hybrid lineages T cIId and Tciie.

This study represents a first crucial step towards international validation of PCR procedures for detection of T. cruzi in human blood samples by an external quality evaluation. Expand
The infection rates of trypanosomes in squirrel monkeys at two sites in the Brazilian Amazon.
TLDR
It is suggested that the validity of T. saimirii needs to be evaluated, as almost all monkeys presenting trypanosomes morphologically indistinguishable from T. rangeli in cultural forms were found through xenodiagnosis and/or haemoculture to be infected by T. minasense. Expand
