Abstract.

was isolated from 98 patients, 59 , 51 Triatoma spinolai, and 1 from northern Chile. With few exceptions, stocks originating from domestic hosts were classified, based on their isozyme profile, as principal zymodeme (Z)2, while sylvatic stocks from and the rodent showed Z1 profiles. These results indicate the existence of separate domestic and sylvatic transmission cycles.

Clinical data and isozyme profiles from 107 chronic Chagas' disease patients showed no association between infecting zymodeme and the prevalence of chagasic cardiopathy. However, the age distributions of two groups of patients carrying different zymodemes were significantly different.
