polyparasitism with schistosoma haematobium and soil-transmitted helminth infections among school children in loum, cameroon.prevalence and abundance of schistosoma haematobium and soil-transmitted helminths (sth) were assessed among a total of 1600 pupils (urine, n = 1190; faecal samples, n = 1454) attending five schools in loum, littoral province, cameroon, with the specific aim of assessing the extent of polyparasitism and the extent to which infections were focused in particular subsets of the study group. prevalence of s. haematobium was 62.8% with an abundance (arithmetic mean of egg counts) of 54 eggs/10 ml uri ...200314629763
a single-strand conformation polymorphism (sscp) approach for investigating genetic interactions of schistosoma haematobium and schistosoma guineensis in loum, cameroon.single-strand conformation polymorphism (sscp) analysis of the second internal transcribed spacer (its2) of nuclear ribosomal dna provides a molecular tool for the identification of schistosoma haematobium, schistosoma guineensis and the hybrids of these two species. this molecular tool was utilized to provide a detailed analysis of the interactions between s. haematobium and s. guineensis in hybrid zones of loum, littoral province, cameroon. individual hybrid schistosomes were identified within ...200717058111
mapping of schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminthiasis in the regions of littoral, north-west, south and south-west cameroon and recommendations for treatment.the previous nationwide mapping of schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminthiasis (sth) in cameroon was conducted 25 years ago. based on its results, mass drug administration (mda) of praziquantel was limited to the three northern regions and few health districts in the southern part of cameroon. in 2010, we started the process of updating the disease distribution in order to improve the control strategies. three of the ten regions of cameroon were mapped in 2010 and the data were published. ...201324365046
