Trypanosoma cruzi is a protozoan parasite that causes Chagas disease, or American trypanosomiasis, which is widely spread in Latin America. The pathogenesis of Chagas disease is complicated and multifactorial, and involves many interactive pathways. The current therapy for Chagas disease is limited and unsatisfactory.
Therefore, this Special Issue will focus on recent advances in the biology and molecular pathogenesis of Trypanosoma cruzi infection and promising new therapeutic candidates for Chagas disease and their challenges.
