Evaluation of Genetic Diversity among Glossina Fuscipes subpopulations from sleeping sickness foci in Uganda using Microsa Tellite DNA markers
(Makerere University, 2008-01)
Vector population genetic structure is rarely analyzed yet it is important in the understanding of the epidemiology of vector borne diseases and their control. In this study, patterns of genetic variation in the tsetse fly ...

African animal and human trypanosomiasis in South Eastern Uganda: animal reservoirs, vector competence and characterisation of trypanosoma brucei isolates
This study was designed to investigate the factors responsible for the persistence of sleeping sickness in southeastern Uganda. In addition to the general aspects, this investigation was specifically designed to study the ...
Socio-economic factors influencing control of vector-borne diseases in the pastoralist system of South Western Uganda
(Springer Verlag, 2008)
Research in control of tick-borne diseases and trypanosomosis, and their vectors, namely, ticks and tsetse flies respectively, has been on going for decades. However, very little attention has been paid to the socio-economic ...
Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense Transmitted by a Single Tsetse Fly Bite in Vervet Monkeys as a Model of Human African Trypanosomiasis
(Public Library of Science, 2008-05)
We have investigated the pathogenicity of tsetse (Glossina pallidipes)-transmitted cloned strains of Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense in vervet monkeys. Tsetse flies were confirmed to have mature trypanosome infections by ...
