Table 1 Average values of physicochemical parameters in cerebrospinal fluid taken from goats from the groups experimentally infected with T.vivax and evaluated in the acute and chronic phases (G1 and G2) and from goats in the control group (G3) during the experimental period.

From: Association of Trypanosoma vivax in extracellular sites with central nervous system lesions and changes in cerebrospinal fluid in experimentally infected goats

Group Appearance Total protein (g/dL) Glucose (mg/dL) Cellularity (cell/μL) Density (g/mL) T. vivax status
G1 Clear 25a 74.5a 8.0a 1.006a Not found
G2 Turbid 90b 12.0b 25.0b 1.045b Found
G3 Clear 30a 80.0a 6.0a 1.004a Not found
  1. G1 - Group experimentally infected by T. vivax and evaluated in the acute phase; G2 - Group experimentally infected by T. vivax and evaluated in the chronic phase; G3 - non-infected group.
  2. a,bMeans followed by the same lower case letters in the same column are not significantly different according to the Tukey's test at a 5% significance level.
