Reports on the clinico-pathology and mechanisms of trypanosomosis in free-living and captive wild animals showed that clinical disease and outbreaks occur more commonly among captive than free-living wild animals. This is because the free-living wild animals co-exist with the disease until subjected to captivity. In exceptional cases however, draught, starvation and intercurrent diseases often compromised trypanotolerance leading to overt trypanosomosis in free-living wild animals. Meanwhile…

African Trypanosomiasis-Associated Anemia: The Contribution of the Interplay between Parasites and the Mononuclear Phagocyte System
TLDR
An overview of how trypanosome- and host-derived factors can contribute totrypanosomosis-associated anemia development with a focus on the MPS system is given.
The Mechanisms of Anaemia in Trypanosomosis: A Review
TLDR
The mechanism or pathophysiology of anaemia in trypanosomosis is complex and multifactorial in origin and initiates a cascade of events leading to haemolytic anaemia and cardiovascular collapse.
African Natural Products with Potential Anti-trypanosomal Properties: A Review
TLDR
This review presents the profiles of African natural product (plants and insect) with anti-trypanosomal properties, reported in the literature and provides strong evidence of the potential beneficial effects of phytotherapy in the traditional management of trypanosomiasis.

The effect of melarsenoxyde cysteamine hydrochloride (Cymelarsan®) on the clinico-pathology of an experimental Trypanosoma evansi infection in dromedary camels (Camelus dromedarius)
TLDR
It is concluded that T. evansi caused severe clinicopathological effects which were alleviated following treatment with Cymelarsan ® .
Arthropods of medicoveterinary importance in zoos.
TLDR
A case is made for the value of collaborations between entomologists and zoo personnel as a means of enhancing research and public education while safeguarding the health of captive animals and the public.
Effects of Diminazene Diaceturate (veriben®) on Serum and Clinico-pathological Changes in Guinea Pigs (Cavia porcellus) Experimentally Infected with Trypanosoma brucei brucei
TLDR
Evidence has shown that the administration of Veriben ® at the dose rate of 3.5 mg/kg and 7.0mg/kg have the potentials of modulating the state of anaemia, immunosuppression and serum electrolytes levels, gross and histopathological changes in trypanosome-infected guinea pigs in a dose dependent manner.

TLDR
It was concluded that a relationship exists between CNS pathology, PCV and mass loss in Gambian trypanosomosis and many strains of T. b.

TLDR
The results of this study suggest that baboons manifest similar clinical and pathological lesions as man infected with T. b.
Pathogenesis of Trypanosoma brucei Infection in Deer Mice (Peromyscus maniculatus).
TLDR
Transmission electron microscopy of the sinuses and Billroth's cords of the splenic red pulp demonstrated an increased cellularity with greater contact between cells due partly to proliferation of macrophages, transformed lymphocytes and plasma cells and partly to accelerated erythropoiesis with increases in the numbers of rubricytes and reticulocytes.

TLDR
An alarming lack of knowledge is revealed regarding the identification and differentiation of the causative organisms in the mammalian trypanosomes of tropical and subtropical countries.
Trypanotolerance, an option for sustainable livestock production in areas at risk from trypanosomosis.
TLDR
Preliminary genetic parameters for PCV provide evidence that trypanotolerance is not only a breed characteristic but is also a heritable trait within the N'Dama population; this brings new opportunities for improved productivity through selection for trypanosomosis.
Trypanotolerance in cattle and prospects for the control of trypanosomiasis by selective breeding.
TLDR
The ability to resist the development of anaemia in the face of infection, as assessed by packed red cell volume percent (PCV), has been shown to be correlated with the capacity to be productive, thereby identifying regulation of PCV as a key trait of trypanotolerance.
Pathogenesis of Trypanosoma brucei Infection in Deer Mice (Peromyscus maniculatus).
TLDR
The results of light and electron microscopic studies demonstrated that Trypanosoma brucei infection produced marked testicular degeneration in deer mice with highly significant decreases in testicular weight, seminiferous tubular diameter, and epithelial thickness.

TLDR
T. vivax occurs in areas where its normal insect vector, the tsetse fly Glossina, is absent, and apparently it has become adapted to a purely mechanical means of transmission by such insects as horse-flies and stableflies.

TLDR
This study compares the susceptibility of African buffalo and Boran cattle to intravenous infection with T. congolense blood stream forms and finds that the cattle developed severe anaemia and had to be treated 60 days after infection to save them from dying whereas the buffaloes did not develop any signs of anaemiaand did not require treatment.
