American Trypanosomiasis

American trypanosomiasis, or Chagas disease, is caused by the protozoan parasite, Trypanosoma cruzi. Sixteen to eighteen million people are currently infected with this organism, and 45,000 deaths are attributed to the disease each year. Infection with T. cruzi is life-long, and 10-30% of persons who harbor the parasite chronically develop cardiac and gastrointestinal problems associated with the parasitosis. Although major progress has been made in recent years in reducing vector-borne and transfusion-associated transmission of T. cruzi, the burden of disability and death in persons chronically infected with the organism continues to be enormous. Eight to ten million persons born in countries in which Chagas disease is endemic currently reside in the United States, and epidemiologic and census data suggest that 50,000-100,000 are chronically infected with T. cruzi. The presence of these infected persons poses a risk of transmission of the parasite in the USA through blood transfusion and organ transplantation and several such cases have now been documented. American Trypanosomiasis, volume seven of World Class Parasites is written for students of tropical medicine, parasitology and public health, for researchers and practitioners alike who wish to bring themselves abreast of the status quo with respect to this disease. It is intended to supplement formal textbooks, in order to broaden and illuminate current areas of scientific and public health concern. Uniquely for T. cruzi, this book addresses parasite, vector and host biology, the pathogenesis of Chagas disease and current and prospective therapeutics and control strategies in a single volume.

Chagas disease causes severe socioeconomic impact and a high medical cost in Latin America. WHO and the World Bank consider Chagas disease as the fourth most transmittable disease to have a major impact on public health in Latin America: 120 million persons are potentially exposed, 16 to 18 million of whom are presently infected, causing 45,000 to 50,000 deaths per year. It has been calculated that approximately 2.4 million potential working years are lost because of incapacity and mortality due to the disease, for an annual

In this book, the history of Chagas' disease is discussed in the context of the emergence of modern medicine in Brazil. Based on extensive literature search and archive studies, different aspects of this important disease are reviewed. Starting from the clinical and socioeconomic significance, a summary of the history prior to its discovery by Chagas in 1908 is presented. The disease discovery process is discussed in terms of parasitic disease knowledge in this period and the continuing effort leading to the

Communicable diseases are community problems, which can devastate whole populations, in both developing and developed countries. Epidemiology is the science of communities that looks at many individuals to try and discover common features in them. From this analysis the cause and characteristics of a disease can be worked out. The first chapters of this book look at communicable disease theory and formulating common principles in both epidemiology and control. Since the first edition, published in 1996, a new section on climate

The continuous and rapid improvement of tourism around the whole world and the increasing emigration of peoples from the developing countries to the "old continents" have changed the classical image of tropical diseases, which are now seen more frequently in temperate and highly developed countries. Consequently, over 10 years after its first publication, this second edition of the pathology of tropical diseases has been restructured and expanded to reflect the recent developments and changes in diagnostic techniques.
