drug and immuno-diagnostic resistant amoebic liver abscess in ibadan: an elucidation of a possible mechanism.a thick fibrous walling of amoebic abscess of the liver is very rare. using as a basis the case of drug and immunodiagnostic resistant amoebic liver abscess in an adult nigerian, an account is given of the possible mechanisms for such therapeutic and diagnostic failure. a theory of blood-abscess cavity barrier is postulated and suggested as a mechanism for the constant failure to detect antibodies to e. histolytica in the small percentage of cases of amoebic liver abscess (morris, powell and els ...1976189058

prevalence of antibodies to parasitic infections in nigerian children.sixty-six sera from nigerian children who attended a paediatric clinic at university college hospital, ibadan were tested with plasmodium falciparum, p. brazilianum, entamoeba histolytica, toxoplasma gondii and schistosoma mansoni antigens using indirect fluorescent antibody technique. these sera were tested using elisa technique for schistosoma antibodies. sera from all proven cases of infections gave positive results. highest antibody prevalence rate was for p. falciparum (69.6%), followed by ...19817017156

the prevalence of human intestinal protozoa in ibadan, nigeria.this study shows that the two intestinal protozoa, giardia lamblia, balantidium coli in addition to entamoeba histolytica are prevalent in the ibadan population and are responsible for many of the non-bacterial diarrhoea seen in patients. a high seasonal prevalence of the intestinal protozoa in the dry months of the year was associated with the use of contaminated water. both the high infection rates recorded in adults and children under five years old, and the high frequency of association invo ...1977563477
intestinal helminthiasis and haemoparasitism in an area of endemic dracunculiasis in oyo state of nigeria.in the course of a survey of human intestinal and haemoparasites in oluyole local government area of nigeria known to be endemic for dracunculiasis, most of the inhabitants were burdened with parasitic infections which include ascariasis (43.7%), hookworm infection (27.1%), trichuriasis (31%), strongyloidiasis (2.5%), entamoeba histolytica infestation (3.9%), e. coli infestation (2.7%) and plasmodiasis (43.7%). peak of ascariasis was among the 1-10 years age group while those of trichuriasis, ho ...19862944853
