Abstract
Infectious blood diseases of man and animals, or hemotropic diseases, have been a retarding factor in the progress of mankind. Human malaria (Garnham, 1966), trypanosomiasis in animals and man (Ford, 1971), babesiosis in animals (Reik, 1968, anaplasmosis (Ristic, 1968) and theileriasis (Barnett, 1968) have probably killed more people and animals than any other group of diseases in tropical regions of the 1and. Indeed, there is the indication that malaria alone has killed more human beings than any other Single disease (Garnham, 1966). Veterinary and medical students may not be aware of the fact that trypanosomiasis has caused severe losses in human and animal populations of Africa (Ford, 1971).
