[epidemiology of schistosomiasis in a suburban school area of bamako (republic of mali)].epidemiology of schistosomiasis has been assessed in october, 1990 in three primary schools of a suburban district of bamako: magnambougou. it was a cross sectional study which was carried out on an hazardous sample of 549 pupils of 7 to 14 years old. the kato-katz and urine filtration methods were used to search schistosome eggs. the prevalence rate was 50% (256/512) in schistosoma haematobium and 5.6% (26/464) in s. mansoni. children from 11-14 years old were more infected by schistosoma haema ...19957787449
distribution and genetic diversity of schistosoma haematobium within its bulinid intermediate hosts in mali.random amplified polymorphic dna (rapd) markers were used to assess distribution and genetic diversity of schistosoma haematobium populations within their bulinid intermediate hosts in mali. naturally infected snails (bulinus truncatus and b. globosus) were collected at four sites in the bamako district. s. haematobium cercariae from single snails were used to infect mice and genotypes of the resultant adult worms were characterized using rapd markers. diversity indices were calculated at the sc ...19979177092
