The sensitivity of strains of polymorphic trypanosomes to human plasma was investigated in mice. By measuring the prepatent period an approximate estimate could be made of how many trypanosomes resisted each of a graded series of doses of plasma and survived to produce infection. In this way the composition of typical strains could be analysed. Three types… CONTINUE READING
