      Chagas disease, also called American trypanosomiasis, is a disease caused by a parasite. It is mainly spread by kissing bugs, which are common in Latin America. It is important to get early treatment. Learn about the signs and symptoms. Chagas disease is an anthropozoonosis from the American continent that has spread from its original boundaries through migration. It is caused by the protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi, which was identified in the first decade of the 20th century. Once acute infection resolves, patients can develop chronic disease, which in up to 30–40% of cases is characterised by cardiomyopathy, arrhythmias.

Chagas disease is named after the Brazilian physician Carlos Chagas, who discovered the disease in It is caused by the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi, which is transmitted to animals and people by insect vectors and is found only in the Americas (mainly, in rural areas of Latin America where poverty is widespread).Chagas disease (T.

cruzi infection) is also referred to as American. In areas of Mexico, Central America, and South America, where the Trypanosoma cruzi parasite is present in triatomine bugs, improved housing and spraying insecticide inside housing to eliminate the bugs has significantly decreased the spread of Chagas disease.

Screening of blood donations for Chagas is another important public health tool to help prevent spreading the disease. This thematic volume provides authoritative, up-to-date reviews addressing recent advances as well as an overview for the research and clinical communities on the endemic infection of Chagas disease.

Lead researchers discuss epidemiology and control measures as well as various diagnosis techniques, treatments, and therapies currently being used.

American Trypanosomiasis, Chagas Disease: One Hundred Years of Research, Second Edition, provides a comprehensive overview of Chagas disease and discusses the latest discoveries concerning the three elements that compose the transmission chain of the disease, the host, the insect vectors, and the causative parasite.

The report concludes by identifying priorities for research and offering guidance for the planning, implementation, and strengthening of national control programmes. " this book makes an extremely valuable contribution toward understanding Chagas disease.

Dengue fever and Chagas disease are important public health problems in Latin America. Dengue is a re-emerging viral disease, mainly transmitted by Aedes aegyptii mosquitoes, leading to an increasing number of outbreaks notably in urban areas of the continent.

1,2 Chagas disease, a parasitic disease transmitted by Triatomine bugs, is a major cause of morbidity and mortality among the continent Cited by: Chagas Disease.

The primary approaches to control of Chagas disease are halting transmission and providing adequate treatment for those infected. The two most important routes of transmission are insect vectors and blood transfusion from infected donors; thus, control programs focus on eliminating domestic vector populations and improving the Cited by: This book offers a comprehensive overview of Chagas disease, including its vectorial and congenital transmission, as well as molecular diagnosis, which is essential for screening.

Pathogenesis of the disease and the development of timely, effective anti-trypanosomal treatments are discussed. Because of migration, patients with Chagas are showing up everywhere from Spain and Italy to Japan and Australia. The Centers for Disease Control and Author: Daisy Hernández.

Epidemiology. An estimated 8 million people are infected with Trypanosoma cruzi worldwide, mainly in Latin America where Chagas disease remains one of the biggest public health problems, causing incapacity in infected individuals and more than 10 deaths per year.

In the past two decades, Chagas disease has spread to more uninfected regions compared with its evolution since over 9 A book is presented discussing the current knowledge on the clinical forms, physiopathology, laboratory diagnosis and therapy of Chagas' disease.

It describes the biological and genetic characteristics of Trypanosoma cruzi as well as its triatomine vectors and natural reservoirs. Disease prevention and control strategies in Brazil, Andean Group and Central America are outlined.

The result is a book that should be read by anyone wishing to undertake field projects to study or control Chagas' disease. The Kiss of Death provides a useful summary of current knowledge, although it cannot substitute for texts or articles that deal more completely with research results and specific aspects of Cited by: 2.

American Trypanosomiasis, Chagas Disease: One Hundred Years of Research, Second Edition, provides a comprehensive overview of Chagas disease and discusses the latest discoveries concerning the three elements that compose the transmission chain of the disease, the host, the insect vectors, and the causative parasite.

In addition, new insights on the molecular biology and diagnostics of Chagas. Chagas Disease. Chagas disease is an excellent model system to test such ‘dilution’ effect as it presents all four key features to promote dilution: (1) a generalist vector that (2) principally acquire infection horizontally and (3) can feed on reservoir species with heterogeneous competences with (4) the most competent host being dominant in the community of interest (Johnson and.

Chagas disease is a potentially life threatening condition that was historically mainly endemic to Latin America. Over the last decade, however, the disease has spread to and is increasingly prevalent in other continents such as North America and Europe, with an estimated 7 million people infected worldwide.

It is primarily transmitted by insect vectors that carry the parasite Trypanosoma. Patients under age 50 years old with chronic Chagas Disease and no advanced Cardiomyopathy Consult CDC or infectious disease for management recommendations regarding specific case management Preparations (available in U.S.

through CDC). The disease was endemic in all seven countries in the southern cone, and wavering political commitment and reinfestation of the insect vectors across borders hampered efforts to control disease. Today an estimated 11 million people in 15 Latin American countries are infected with Chagas disease.

Chagas disease, which is caused by the flagellate parasite Trypanosoma cruzi, affects 8–10 million people in Latin America.

The disease is endemic and is characterised by acute and chronic phases that develop in the indeterminate, cardiac, and/or gastrointestinal forms. The immune response during human T. cruzi infection is not completely understood, despite its role in driving the Cited by: Probability of transmission of Chagas disease by Triatoma infestans (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) in an endemic area of Santiago del Estero, Argentina.
