Abstract: Introduction: Different strains and clones of Trypanosoma cruzi present different degrees of susceptibility to treatment with chemotherapic drugs. Several studies have been developed to evaluate the response to different drugs concerning the strains prototypes of Biodemes Types I, II and III according to the biological characterization. Results have shown that the strains prototypes of the Biodeme Type I (Y and Peruvian strains) disclosed a high susceptibility to treatment with Benznidazole and Nifurtimox; strains of the Biodeme Type II (prototype: the 21SF strain) showed a medium susceptibility; the strains of the Biodeme Type III (Colombian strain) were highly resistant
