African Sleeping Sickness The Trypanosoma brucei group. T. brucei brucei T. brucei gambiense T. brucei rhodesiense

T. b. brucei Occurs in the circulatory system of most native antelopes, ruminants, and other wildlife in Africa.

T. b. brucei Occurs in the circulatory system of most native antelopes, ruminants, and other wildlife in Africa. Non-pathogenic to these animals (does not kill them!).

T. b. brucei Occurs in the circulatory system of most native antelopes, ruminants, and other wildlife in Africa. Non-pathogenic to these animals (does not kill them!).

However it is fatal to introduced livestock like cattle, causing a wasting disease called Nagana. Nagana caused by T. b. brucei

Transmission by Tsetse fly. T. b. rhodesiense: Acute or Rhodesian Sleeping Sickness A more recent colonizer of people and therefore does not do well in people and

kills them. T. b. rhodesiense: Acute or Rhodesian Sleeping Sickness A more recent colonizer of people and therefore does not do well in people and kills them.
