patterns of infection with schistosoma haematobium in lakeside resettlement communities at the oyan reservoir in ogun state, south-western nigeria.patterns of infection with schistosoma haematobium were studied in 1991 and 1992 in two, lakeside, resettlement communities at the newly established oyan reservoir in ogun state, nigeria. prevalence and intensity of s. haematobium infection and frequency of haematuria and proteinuria all increased markedly from 1991 to 1992, indicating intensive transmission. this was confirmed in an incidence study. in both years, infection patterns were highly age-dependent, with peaks in those aged 10-14 year ...19979307661
water level regulation and control of schistosomiasis transmission: a case study in oyan reservoir, ogun state, nigeria.the effect of different water discharge patterns from the artificial oyan reservoir in ogun state, nigeria, on water level fluctuations and on schistosomiasis transmission was investigated between august 1990 and march 1993 to determine the impact of water level regulation on schistosomiasis transmission and control. the results show that transmission was greatly influenced by the pattern of water discharge during the hot dry season (january-april). a high discharge during this period of no rain ...19979447776
schistosoma haematobium infection in abeokuta.ten years after the initial report of the outbreak of schistosomiasis in the vicinity of sokori stream (a tributary of ogun river) in abeokuta, nigeria, investigation was carried out to determine the present status of the disease, given the increased socioeconomic activities in the city. a total of 1670 school pupils in three schools within one kilometer radius of the stream, and 234 adults found using the stream for some water related activities were examined for eggs in their urine. one hundre ...199810456120
intestinal helminthiases and schistosomiasis among school children in an urban center and some rural communities in southwest nigeria.intestinal helminths and schistosomiasis among school children were investigated in an urban and some rural communities of ogun state, southwest nigeria. fecal samples of 1,059 subjects (524 males, 535 females) aged 3-18 years were examined using direct smear and brine concentration methods between june 2005 and november 2006. the pooled prevalence of infection was 66.2%. ascaris lumbricoides showed the highest prevalence (53.4%) (p < 0.001) followed by hookworms (17.8%), trichuris trichiura (10 ...200717876171
geographical information system and predictive risk maps of urinary schistosomiasis in ogun state, nigeria.the control of urinary schistosomiasis in ogun state, nigeria remains inert due to lack of reliable data on the geographical distribution of the disease and the population at risk. to help in developing a control programme, delineating areas of risk, geographical information system and remotely sensed environmental images were used to developed predictive risk maps of the probability of occurrence of the disease and quantify the risk for infection in ogun state, nigeria.200818513442
squamous cell abnormalities in exfoliated cells from the urine of schistosoma haematobium-infected adults in a rural fishing community in nigeria.schistosoma haematobium infection is endemic in nigeria, with substantial transmissions in all the states of the federation and a high prevalence rate in schools. literature has linked bladder cancer, mostly squamous cell type, with long-term s. haematobium infections. the objective of this descriptive study was to screen exfoliated cells in the urine of s. haematobium-infected patients for squamous cell abnormalities through cytopathological examinations. study participants were drawn from imal ...200818574340
studies on the prevalence of urinary schistosomiasis in ogun state, south-western nigeria.the assessment of the extent and distribution of schistosoma infection in every region in nigeria is important and required for formulating intervention strategies suitable for each endemic area.201121863592
polymerase chain reaction (pcr) investigations of prepatent schistosoma haematobium cercariae incidence in five water bodies, south west, nigeria.this study investigated the levels of prepatent s. haematobium infection in water samples collected from schistosomiasis haematobium transmission namely: international institute of tropical agriculture (iita) river and eleyele river in oyo state, oyan dam and shokori river in ogun state, badagry lagoon and lagoon (university of lagos, lagos state).201223678640
