Trypanosoma cruzi: Interaction with Host Cells

  • B. Zingales

Part of the Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology book series (CT MICROBIOLOGY, volume 117)


The flagellate protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi (order Kinetoplastida) is the aetiological agent of Chagas’ disease. The disease, predominantly rural, affects approximately 10–12 million people living in Latin America. Thus, from the medical point of view, T. cruzi is the most important trypanosomatid in the New World.
