Nanotechnology has revolutionized management of infections and infestations as it has turned chemicals of previously little or no clinical benefits to potent instruments for treatment of infections in humans. This study was set up to review the phytochemistry of Ganoderma applanatum, its potentiality in nanotechological engineering for clinical use as well as impact of aqueous extracts of Ganoderma applanatum on laboratory rats infected with Trypanosoma brucei brucei. Aqueous extracts of Ganoderma applanatum were obtained using hot sterile distilled water through whatmann filter paper. The presence of saponins, alkaloids, tannins, anthraquinones, flavonoids, cardiac glycosides and steroids were tested using standard procedures in vitro. Laboratory rats were infected with Trypanosoma brucei brucei by injecting infected blood samples into their peritoneal cavities. Laboratory rats infected with Trypanosoma species served as positive controls while similar sets of rats uninfected by the parasites served as negative controls. Acqueous extracts were then inoculated through the tail veins into laboratory rats infected with Trypanosoma brucei brucei along with the negative controls. Blood samples were collected daily, stained with Giemsa?s stain and examined under X100 oil immersion objective lens using the microscope for the presence of Trypanosoma brucei parasites. Ganoderma applanatum aqueous extracts contained detectable levels of saponins, flavonoids, cardiac glycosides and steroids but undetectable levels of alkaloids, tannins and anthraquinone. All the infected rats died by day 12 from overwhelming trypanosomal infections due to its obvious lack of activity.The biochemical constituents of Ganoderma species should be subjected to further research probably nanotechnological engineering in order to, perhaps, discover more of its wider therapeutic benefits, and to further disprove its suitability or otherwise in the treatment of African sleeping sickness.
