Abstract

IN recent years evidence has been accumulating which suggests that pharmacologically active peptides are of importance in the pathology of some acute parasitic infections1–4. The present work has been to extend these studies to chronic infections, and in all experiments so far trypanosomes have been used as test organisms.
