Table 1 Prevalence of African trypanosomes detected in Luambe National Park

From: Sodalis glossinidius prevalence and trypanosome presence in tsetse from Luambe National Park, Zambia

Tsetse species Trypanosome prevalence (95% CI)
T. brucei s.l. T. b. rhodesiense T. vivax T. godfreyi T. simiae T. simiae Tsavo T. congolense
Glossina brevipalpis (n = 55, 42) 38.2% (25.4-52.3) 4.8% (0.6-16.2) 14.5% (6.5-26.7) 0% (0.0-6.5) 18.2% (9.1-30.1) 9.1% (3.0-20.0) 10.9% (4.1-22.2)
Glossina morsitans morsitans (n = 137, 119) 73.7% (65.9-80.6) 35.3% (26.0-43.7) 32.9% (25.1-40.3) 2.2% (0.6-5.8) 2.2% (0.6-5.8) 3.6% (1.2-8.3) 14.6% (9.2-21.6)
Glossina pallidipes (n = 419, 392) 12.6% (9.6-16.2) 0.5% (0.06-1.8) 7.2% (4.8-10.1) 9.5% (6.9-12.7) 3.1% (1.6-5.3) 1.9% (0.8-3.7) 6.0% (3.9-8.7)
  1. ITS-PCR (T. brucei s.l., T. vivax, T. godfreyi, T. simiae and T. congolense) and SRA-PLC-PCR (T. b. rhodesiense) were used to detect trypanosomes in G. brevipalpis, G. m. morsitans and G. pallidipes from Luambe National Park, Zambia. Number of flies examined has been provided for ITS-PCR and then SRA-PLC-PCR. The latter is lower as flies not positive for PLC were removed from this dataset.
