[bulinus truncatus, planorbarius metidjensis and endemic bilharziosis in the southwestern morocco].since planorbarius metidjensis was recently found to be an experimental intermediate host of schistosoma haematobium in the south-west of morocco, a study on planorbid and b. truncatus was carried out from 1997 to 2005. eleven planorbid populations were identified in 1997 in the agadir province, all living at high altitude (from 340 to 1380 m). in contrast, most of the seven bulinid populations inhabited low-lying zones. three annual generations of p. metidjensis (april-july june-september, and ...200717824308
schistosoma haematobium: comparative studies on the characteristics of infection in three populations of planorbarius metidjensis from the agadir province in south morocco.planorbarius metidjensis measuring 2 or 3 mm in diameter and originating from three populations in the agadir province (ida ou gnidif, imouzzer, and sidi belkacem) were experimentally infected with schistosoma haematobium to determine if the complete larval development of the parasite might be ensured by any snail population of the agadir province and to compare the general characteristics of infection. no significant difference between the three populations was noted in the survival rates of sn ...19999951968
