Nature volume 88, pages 529530 (15 February 1912) | Download Citation



THE latest report of the British Sleeping Sickness Commission is the outcome of the work of Colonel Sir David Bruce, Captains A. E. Hamerton, H. R. Bateman, F. P. Mackie, and Lady Bruce, the members of the third commission to Uganda during the years 1908–10. It is highly satisfactory to find that, in the volume before us, a distinct advance is recorded in our knowledge relating to important etiological questions connected with the spread of sleeping sickness and of certain animal diseases due to trypanosomes.
