Abstract

Summary

Bedbugs that had fed on man and on rat infected with relapsing fever did not transmit it to uninfected animals by feeding on them at subsequent intervals.

Bedbugs caused relapsing fever when macerated and inoculated into a white mouse as late as thirty-two days after they had fed on an infected animal.

Spirochetes were found in the coelomic fluid of bedbugs fifteen days after feeding on infected blood. This would indicate that the spirochetes survive and apparently multiply in the bugs for a while at least.

Summario

Cuando la chinche se pone en contacto con el cuerpo de hombres y ratas infectadas con fiebre recurrente, de manera que los insectos obtengan alimentación por chupadura directa, no se consigue transmitir la enfermedad al hacer que las chinches así alimentadas piquen subsiguientemente a otros animales sanos.

Las chinches causaron la enfermedad después de haber sido maceradas e inoculadas a un ratón blanco habiendo transcurrido un intervalo de 32 días desde el contacto de aquellas con el animal infectado.

Encontramos espiroquetes en el fluído celómico de las chinches a los quince días después de la alimentación de aquellas con sangre infectada. Esto parece indicar que los espiroquetes sobreviven y aparentemente se multiplican por algún tiempo en las chinches.
