    ..HAT-PCR-OC is a promising new tool for diagnosis of sleeping sickness in laboratory settings, and the diagnostic format described here may have wider application for other infectious diseases...

    ..3% (kappa-index 0.416, 95% CI: 0.30-0.53). Our findings indicate that PCR alone rather provides a marker for infection than a marker for disease and its role in VL diagnosis in endemic regions is discussed. ..
