American Trypanosomiasis provides a accomplished assessment of Chagas sickness and discusses the newest discoveries about the 3 components that compose the transmission chain of the disease:

  • The host: human and mammalian reservoirs
  • The insect vectors: household and sylvatic vectors
  • The causative parasite: Trypanosoma cruzi
  • Informs and updates on the entire newest advancements within the field
  • Contributions from prime experts and experts
