Chagas Disease Biospecimens l Order Online


Chagas disease is a parasitic infection caused by Trypanosoma cruzi spread to humans through the bite of triatomine bugs, commonly known as Kissing bugs. Due to the higher prevalence in the rural areas of Latin America, Chagas disease is also known as American trypanosomiasis. The disease also spreads through congenital transmission, blood transfusion, organ transplantation, and exposure to the infected blood. If left untreated, it can be life-threatening due to chronic infection. Moreover, it is one of the major parasitic infections causing significant disease burden and economic burden to the public health regulators.

Clinical Presentation of Chagas disease:

Clinical manifestations of Chagas disease include acute and chronic phases. During the acute phase, the patient may exhibit no symptoms or mild symptoms. Symptomatic patients develop swelling or skin lesions on one eye accompanied by headache, fever, palpable lymph node, swelling, breathing difficulty, chest or body pain. During the chronic phase, the infection can prolong and develop into cardiac and gastrointestinal complications.Chagas disease can be diagnosed through microscopic examination of the parasite in a blood smear.

Trypanosoma cruzi is a parasite that causes Chagas disease. It is transmitted to people by biting triatomine bugs, also referred to as kissing bugs. Chagas disease, sometimes called American trypanosomiasis, is more common in rural areas of Latin America.
Chagas disease can be effectively treated especially in the acute phase of illness by medication such as Benznidazole or Nifurtimox to kill the parasite.
Chagas disease biospecimens are human serum and plasma samples collected from patients suffering from Chagas infection. The samples are well screened for Trypanosoma cruzi IgG and IgM and ideal for research anad development.
Chagas disease can also transmit through sexual contact with infected partner. It usually transmit from males to females.
