[geographic distribution and epidemiology of urinary schistosomiasis in mali: implications for a control program].a national survey was conducted in mali between 1986 and 1990 to determine the geographical distribution of urinary schistosomiasis in order to define an ecologically based national schistosomiasis control programme. fifty six thousand two hundreds and sixty five individuals randomly selected from 323 villages in the nine ecologically defined areas of the whole country were submitted to urine examination using filtration technique. in villages along the niger and senegal rivers, in the dogon pla ...200719434989
the impact of single versus mixed schistosome species infections on liver, spleen and bladder morbidity within malian children pre- and post-praziquantel the developing world co-infections and polyparasitism within humans appear to be the rule rather than the exception, be it any combination of inter-specific and/or inter- and intra-genera mixed infections. mixed infections might generate synergistic or antagonistic interactions and thereby clinically affect individuals and/or impact parasite epidemiology.201020670408
significantly reduced intensity of infection but persistent prevalence of schistosomiasis in a highly endemic region in mali after repeated treatment.preventive chemotherapy against schistosomiasis has been implemented since 2005 in mali, targeting school-age children and adults at high risk. a cross-sectional survey was conducted in 2010 to evaluate the impact of repeated treatment among school-age children in the highly-endemic region of segou.201222860153
population genetics of schistosoma haematobium: development of novel microsatellite markers and their application to schistosomiasis control in mali.the recent implementation of mass drug administration (mda) for control of uro-genital schistosomiasis has identified an urgent need for molecular markers to both directly monitor the impact of mda, for example to distinguish re-infections from uncleared infections, as well as understand aspects of parasite reproduction and gene flow which might predict evolutionary change, such as the development and spread of drug resistance. we report the development of a novel microsatellite tool-kit allowin ...201121679489
