  1. Trypanosomes and microfilariae in feral owl and squirrel monkeys maintained in research colonies.

    Article - En anglais

    A group of 358 owl and squirrel monkeys imported from Colombia, Peru, and Bolivia for the U.S. Agency for International Development Malaria Vaccine Development Program was examined for trypanosomes and microfilariae.

    Trypanosoma rangeli, isolated by hemoculture from Aotus nancymai, Saimiri b. boliviensis, and S. b. peruviensis, accounted for 76.6% of all trypanosome infections.

    Trypanosoma cruzi was isolated from 25 of 194 S. b. boliviensis, including two mixed infections with T. rangeli.

    Identifications of trypanosomes were confirmed by blinded tests with a panel of five rRNA probes on a subsample of cultures identified morphologically.
