Trypanosoma brucei gambiense

Trypanosoma brucei gambiense is a protozoal (single-celled) parasite of the family of Trypanosomatidae.

The infection with this parasite may cause the chronic form of African trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness) involving symptoms such as fever and meningoencephalitis.

Trypanosoma brucei gambiense is primarily transmitted by tsetse flies.

For a successful inactivation of parasites, specific disinfectants effective against parasites are required.
