BACKGROUND: While the combination of nifurtimox and eflornithine (NECT) is currently recommended for the treatment of the late stage human African trypansomiasis (HAT), single-agent eflornithine was still the treatment of choice when this trial commenced. This study intended to provide supportive evidence to complement previous trials. METHODS: A multi-centre randomised, open-label, non-inferiority trial was carried out in the Trypanosoma brucei gambiense endemic districts of North-Western Uganda to compare the efficacy and safety of NECT (200 mg/kg eflornithine infusions every 12 h for 7 days and 8 hourly oral nifurtimox at 5 mg/kg for 10 days) to the standard eflornithine regimen (6 hourly at 100 mg/kg for 14 days)...

BACKGROUND: Human trypansomiasis due to infection by animal trypanosomes is rarely reported from India. CASE CHARACTERISTICS: We describe clinical presentation of a 2-month-old boyfrom a rat infested house in rural Gujarat who was diagnosed to be havinginfection with the rodent parasite Trypanosoma lewisi. OBSERVATION: The fever and parasitemia resolved on treatment with liposomal amphotericin B, Ceftriaxone and Amikacin, and there was no recurrence of parasitemia over a 2 month follow-up...

Summary The goal of this study is to describe current epidemiological aspects of human African trypanosomiasis in former historic sectors known for this disease in Mali. We began a study from April to May if 2002 in the districts of Kolondieba, Kenieba, Kati and Kolokani. In the course of study we looked for blood and serum antitrypanosoma antibodies and Trypanosoma brucei gambiense by card agglutination and the mini-column technique, respectively, in 2080 subjects collected during the study period. Than we installed traps along waterways in search of the vector...

We report the initial and follow-up brain findings in a 42-year-old male patient with CNS involvement with African trypansomiasis. Initial MR imaging demonstrated diffuse hyperintensity in the basal ganglia bilaterally as well as involvement of the internal capsule, external capsule, and extreme capsule. Follow-up examination at 1 year revealed decreased signal intensity in the previously affected areas; however, ventricular enlargement indicative of atrophy was readily apparent.
