Sleeping sickness is an infection caused by tiny parasites carried by certain flies. It results in swelling of the brain. Sleeping sickness is caused by two types of parasites Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense and Trypanosomoa brucei gambiense. T b rhodesiense causes the more severe form of the illness. Tsetse flies carry the infection.

Humans are infected by two types, Trypanosoma brucei gambiense (TbG) and Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense (TbR). TbG causes over 98% of reported : Trypanosoma brucei spread by tsetse flies.
Sleeping Sickness Definition Sleeping sickness (also called trypanosomiasis) is an infection caused by Trypanosoma protozoa; it is passed to humans through the bite of the tsetse fly.

It is caused not by a virus, as was the case with the patients in "Awakenings," but by parasites transmitted by a bite from the tsetse fly.

Inhabiting the vast savannah across sub-Saharan Africa, tsetse flies come into contact with people, cattle and wild animals, all acting as reservoirs for the Trypanosoma parasites.

With the incidence of sleeping sickness in decline and genuine progress being made towards the WHO goal of eliminating sleeping sickness as a major public health concern, this is a good moment to evaluate the drugs that ‘got the job done’: their development, their limitations and the resistance that the parasites developed against them.

Human African Trypanosomiasis or sleeping sickness, is a disease caused by Trypanosoma brucei gambiense or Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense.
Humans are the main reservoir of both forms. These hemoflagellate protozoa are transmitted by the bite of various species of Glossina, the tsetse fly.
Researchers from Edinburgh University claim thousands of lives have been saved in Africa by a new initiative to combat sleeping sickness. During our visit to Kenya we also went to the village of Akajonit in Busia where 17 of inhabitants were affected with sleeping sickness, a much higher than average percentage.
One of these inhabitants was a child of four, severely brain damaged following CNS sleeping sickness, who walked, talked, and behaved like a child of two.

I just had to look up sleepy sickness. This sleepy sickness is not caused by the tsetse fly which causes sleeping sickness, otherwise known as trypanosomiasis. Human sleeping sickness in East Africa has been confined to specific areas (known as foci), and many epidemics have ravaged these foci during recorded history ( onwards).

It’s found only in Africa and it is fatal. The symptoms include: fever, headache, and extreme tiredness. The disease progresses to attack the central nervous system, and, ultimately, results in death several months or years after infection.

The original may be consulted at Royal College of Physicians, London.Sleeping sickness, also known as African trypanosomiasis, is caused by the parasitic flagellate Trypanosoma brucei, which is injected into the body by the tsetse fly.
The disease occurs only in the 25 sub-Saharan African countries exposed to the tsetse fly. It can affect humans and animals, particularly cattle. Following efforts to combat the disease, the number of cases has fallen since Sleeping sickness re-emerged in southeastern Uganda in the s and remains a public health problem.
It has continued to spread north into new districts, and gaps remain in the understanding of the causes of its spread and distribution. We report the distribution and magnitude of sleeping sickness in southeastern Uganda from to
