seasonal population densities of snails transmitting urinary and intestinal schistosomiasis in lusaka, zambia.the two molluscan intermediate hosts of s. haematobium schistosomiasis: bulinus africanus and bulinus globosus, were found most commonly in habitats that retained water for a substantial part of the year rather than in temporary rain-filled pools. biomphalaria pfeifferi which transmits s. mansoni were found principally in streams and impoundments like dams but scarce in rivers. in a permanent habitat, the peak density of snails was between the warm, dry months of august and september while in a ...19751169833

the epidemiology and small-scale spatial heterogeneity of urinary schistosomiasis in lusaka province, zambia.in line with the aims of the "national bilharzia control programme" and the "school health and nutrition programme" in zambia, a study on urinary schistosomiasis was conducted in 20 primary schools of lusaka province to further our understanding of the epidemiology of the infection, and to enhance spatial targeting of control. we investigated risk factors associated with urinary schistosomiasis, and examined small-scale spatial heterogeneity in prevalence, using data collected from 1,912 schoolc ...200819021109
schistosomiasis haematobium prevalence and risk factors in a school-age population of peri-urban lusaka, zambia.given association of the parasite schistosoma haematobium with coastal and rural/agricultural populations, there is little documentation to date of infection patterns in today's rapidly urbanizing non-coastal regions. we conducted an observational study of 5-17-year-old school children (n = 1583) in peri-urban compounds of lusaka, zambia. demographic information, medical history, physical examination findings and urinalysis results were recorded. prevalence of schistosomiasis in the population w ...201019892835
snail-parasite compatibility and prevalence of schistosoma haematobium on the shores of lake kariba, zambia.reduced snail-parasite compatibility might be at least partially responsible for the decrease observed, over the last three decades, in the prevalence of urinary schistosomiasis on the shores of lake kariba, zambia. to explore this possibility, the prevalences of urinary schistosomiasis in schoolchildren were investigated in three disparate areas of zambia (lake kariba, lake bangweulu and lusaka), and attempts were made to infect the snails that developed from the eggs of snails collected from e ...200212080977
urban schistosomiasis in lusaka, zambia: a preliminary study.a preliminary survey was conducted in lusaka, zambia to determine the extent of schistosomiasis transmission in the city. stool and urine samples were collected from 240 children from seven schools selected to give a cross-sectional representation of the various socio-economic neighbourhoods of the city. in addition to the parasitological examination, students were questioned with respect to their knowledge of the disease and other epidemiological factors. in addition, water bodies near the scho ...19957783280
