Chagas disease, is a zoonosis caused by Trypanosoma cruzi (T. cruzi). Endemic in Central and Latin American countries, the disease also has a growing presence in non-endemic countries through the migration of people, becoming an emerging health problem. Current estimates report around 18 million people worldwide affected by this chronic, systemic, parasitic infection, of which about 8 million people are resident in Latin America. Up to 30% of patients will develop heart damage, and up to 10% will develop damage to their oesophagus, colon or autonomic nervous system, or all of these, in the late chronic phase of the disease.
Why use LIAISON® Chagas
