Abstract: Malaria is considered to induce immunodepression in host-animals and to increase susceptibility to concurrent infection. Using this phenomenon, we attempted to produce apparently severer infection of Trypanosoma cruzi or Leishmania donovani by low-virulent strains which had been maintained in culture. Plasmodium berghei was inoculated into mice before or after T. cruzi or L. donovani infection. In general, P. berghei infection was shown not to enhance T. cruzi and L. donovani infection with low-virulent strains except for the prolongation of infection by a specific strain of T. cruzi.
