Abstract
Parasitic protozoa affect plants, invertebrates and most vertebrates including humans (41). Trypanosomes are some of the protozoan parasites that have been studied for a long time and cause disease in both humans and livestock commonly known as sleeping sickness and nagana, respectively (36, 149). Efforts to control the disease they cause date as far back as 1800s but the diagnosis of human pathogenic from the non-pathogenic ones was in 1950s and 1960s. However, the cyclical transmission was implied as early as 1909 in tsetse flies.
