  Protozoa (also protozoan, plural protozoans) is an informal term for single-celled eukaryotes, either free-living or parasitic, which feed on organic matter such as other microorganisms or organic tissues and debris. Historically, the protozoa were regarded as "one-celled animals", because they often possess animal-like behaviours, such as motility and predation, and lack a cell wall, as found The hemoflagellates, Trypanosoma spp. and Leishmania spp., are causal agents of a number of parasitic diseases having a major impact on humans and domestic animals over vast areas of the globe. Among the diseases are some of the most pernicious and deadly of human afflictions: African sleeping sickness, Chagas' disease, kala-azar, and Oriental ://

African trypanosomes (Trypanosoma brucei spp.) are protozoan parasites, spread by the tsetse fly, which cause the Neglected Tropical Disease

Updated and much expanded, the Second Edition of Parasitic Protozoa is designed to be useful to physicians, veterinarians, and research scientists concerned with diseases caused by protozoa in man, and in domestic and wild animals including fish, mollusks and insects, as well as the more commonly considered vertebrate animals. Each section contains information on disease pathogens, treatment ?id=7sbL5I6nY3UC.   Trypanosoma cruzi, a protozoan parasite, is the causative agent of Chagas disease. It is most commonly found among people, dogs, cats, and wild mammals in Central and South America, especially in rural communities where people reside in houses constructed from mud or presentations/T. cruzi/T.

"Comparative electron microscope studies on the morphology of the kinetoplast DNA (K-DNA) of the epimastigotes in many trypanosome species were carried out under standardized conditions. The K-DNA shows a morphological variation during the cell cycle of culture forms of the trypanosome species under study.

One of the enduring problems in the epidemiology of sleeping sickness is that there are 3 morphologically indistinguishable subspecies of Trypanosoma brucei involved in a complex transmission cycle between humans, tsetse and reservoir hosts.

Parasitology is an established discipline that covers a wide area of subjects, ranging from the basics to the advanced and applied aspects. The entire book is based on the findings of various studies performed by different authors, comprising reviews and original scientific African trypanosomes go through at least five developmental stages during their life cycle.

African trypanosomes are responsible for significant levels of disease in both humans and animals. The protozoan parasites are free-living flagellates, usually transmitted by arthropod vectors, including the tsetse fly.
