Estudios sobre la infeccion de ratones endogamicos con clones de Trypanosoma cruzi
MetadataShow full item record
The project, which is ongoing, consists of infecting strains of inbred mice with stocks of single-cell-isolated clones of Trypanosoma cruzi and studying the course and outcome of these infections. Research procedures included the determination of the following aspects: 1) virulence spectrum of T. cruzi clones; 2) mouse strain-dependent susceptibility to infection with T. cruzi clones; 3) effect of the number of parasites inoculated on the outcome of infection with T. cruzi clones; 4) influence of the route of inoculation on the outcome of infection; 5) influence of the handling of the parasite on the outcome of infection; 6) influence of the infection by one T. cruzi clone upon the outcome of infection by a second clone, and 7) a multiparametric, time series analysis of the course of infection in a large group of mice for the development of a chronic Chagas' disease model
