This thesis contains the results of an investigation into the immunological events involved in the production of a local skin reaction by rabbits in response to intradermal challenge with Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense. An antigenically defined model system is described which utilises cloned, monomorphic lines of trypanosomes stably expressing a single VAT. Intradermal injection of such trypanosomes into rabbits induced the formation of chancres morphologically indistinguishable from those induced by cyclically transmitted trypanosomes. The injection of 10.
