African Sleeping Sickness and the 7-year-old Me

.

Believe it or not, when I was seven-years-old and in second grade.  I joyfully gave a front-of-class report on African Sleeping Sickness.

I bored my classmates to tears.  My teacher, Miss Milkman, however, was quite a different story.  Here is this story as told to a friend—but stick around later, because these parasites are reputed to be in the shots.

I wouldn’t tell this story for years because I found it embarrassing.  I really don’t care anymore.  Maybe you’ll get a laugh.  It took a looong time for me to laugh at it.

‘One day, my second grade teacher assigned us all a task.  We were each to pick a topic and give our reports in front of the class.

Here is my chance, I thought.

I knew exactly what my report would be about.  It was a topic that had captured my interest.  I found it enthralling.

A librarian denied me access to the library’s reference room, but my grandmother had a Britannica set.  I set to work studying, of all things, African Sleeping Sickness.

 [It seems the pursuit of disease carried me from a young age.]

My day came.  I had relentlessly looked up most words I didn’t understand, but I missed a few.  I excitedly started my talk and proceeded to put the class to sleep.  Bummer.  [I should have covered bunnies.]

But there was one word affiliated with the transmission of the disease that made my teacher wince every time I said it.   If it had been just once, I might not have noticed, but as Miss Milkman continually squirmed in her seat, my 7-year-old mind resolved to discover why.  I was unhappy with myself for missing that damned word.

Back to Grammy’s house, I went and pulled out the appropriate book.  I hadn’t even finished before I shook my head to clear it, slammed it shut, and went out to play in the garden.  I put the whole idea away for years; it was more than my young mind wanted to know.

The word was “coitus.”’

I really did have a very difficult time not being like other kids.  The bullying was relentless.  By the way—I never told my teacher I looked up that word.

I’m almost seventy-years-old.  This report took place when I was seven.  But in true polymathic fashion, I just remembered these things in the shots cause neurological diseases.

Below is how you generally get the disease. It has been my general suspicion for some time that infections are given in the name of research interests.

trypanosoma cruzi development and life cycle in vector || Chagas disease

Development and life cycle of Trypanosoma cruzi in insect vector reduviid bugs.

Trypanosoma cruzi is a parasite belonging to Hemoflagellates group.

Development of Trypanosoma cruzi ininvertebrate host, that is Reduviid bugs starts with ingestion of broader less motile trypomastigote forms that are present in blood of infected vertebrate human host, are transmitted to reduviid bugs during the blood meal.

Trypomastigote forms transform into amastigote forms in the foregut, that is stomach.

Further amastigote transforms into epimastigote and spheromastigote forms. Some intermediate form of parasites is destroyed in foregut.

Epimastigotes passes in gut further to the midgut or intestine. Epimastigotes forms multiply by binary fission and attaches to the gut epithelial lining. This attachment to the epithelial cells is due to presence of flagellum of epimastigote form.

Further the epimastigote form travel to the hindgut, that is rectum.

They finally transform into metacyclictrypomastigote forms in the hindgut. Metacyclic trypomastigote attaches to the cuticle lining of rectum and rectal sac of insect.

When bug or insect passes feces or urine these metacyclic trypomastigote forms are excreted in feces or urine.

On subsequent insect bite metacyclic trypomastigote forms infects new vertebrate host and again starts life cycle in vertebrate host.

This whole insect cycle takes about 10 to 15 days. That is called as extrinsic incubation period.

There is no transovarian transmission seen in the reduviid bugs and once infected, they retain the infection throughout the life by the molting cycles.
