    00:01 Hello and welcome to Parasites: Trypanosoma. This is another in-depth look at parasites of human importance that happen to be protozoans. And after listening to this lecture, you'll understand the lifecycles of Trypanosoma parasites and how they’re transmitted to humans. You will be familiar with the pathogenesis of the different forms of American and African trypanosomes and you will know how to prevent and treat trypanosomiasis.

    00:36 So again these are all eukaryotic protozoan parasites of medical importance. We've looked at plasmodia, toxoplasma, leishmania, and now let's examine the Trypanosomes. Here's a photograph of the blood form of Trypanosoma species. These are very typical flagellated parasites, with a lovely undulating membrane on one side and you can see in this photo, this is a blood smear, so there are red blood cells present.
