Bottlenecks in domestic animal populations can facilitate the emergence of Trypanosoma cruzi, the aetiological agent of Chagas disease
(Royal Society Publishing, 2015)
Faeces-mediated transmission of Trypanosoma cruzi (the aetiological agent of Chagas disease) by triatomine insects is extremely inefficient. Still, the parasite emerges frequently, and has infected millions of people and ...
Chagas disease prevalence in pregnant women: Migration and risk of congenital transmission
(Journal of Infection in Developing Countries, 2016)
Trypanosoma cruzi-infected pregnant women without vector exposure have higher parasitemia levels: implications for congenital transmission risk
(Public Library of Science, 2015)
BACKGROUND: Congenital transmission is a major source of new Trypanosoma cruzi infections, and as vector and blood bank control continue to improve, the proportion due to congenital infection will grow. A major unanswered ...
Oral transmission of Chagas' disease Transmisión de la enfermedad de Chagas por vía oral
The traditional transmission pathways of Chagas' disease are vectorial, transfusional, transplacental and organ transplantation. However, oral transmission is gaining importance. The first evidence of oral transmission was ...

The public and domestic domains in the transmission of disease
This paper discusses the distinction between the transmission of infectious diseases within the domestic domain (the area normally occupied by and under the control of a household) and that in the public domain, which ...
