Predicting the effects of climate change on Schistosoma
mansoni transmission in eastern Africa.
In other regions of the world, transmission seems to establish in non-disease-endemic areas; on the island of Corsica (France), several tourists have been infected with Schistosoma
haematobium while bathing in local rivers (14).
mansoni is the major etiological agent of human schistosomiasis, for which the treatment is dependent on a single drug, praziquantel (PZQ).

2003) limited their study on larval predation to Bulinus forskali (intermediate host of Schistosoma
intercalatum Fischer) and Biomphalaria pfeifferi (intermediate host of S.
Another study identified elevated titres of antinuclear antibodies in the sera of mice acutely infected with Schistosoma
mansoni, five to six weeks after the onset of infection (22).
10) Other causal factors include chronic irritation, indwelling catheters, Schistosoma
haematobium infestation, and pelvic radiation.
Influences of semi-synthetic diets, starvation and infection with Schistosoma
mansuni (Trematoda) on the metabolism of Biornphalaria glabrata (Gastropoda).
Three major Schistosoma
species can infect humans: Schistosoma
haematobium (endemic in Africa and the eastern Mediterranean), S.
Developmental expression analysis and immunolocalization of a biogenic amine receptor in Schistosoma
The parasites identified among the geohelminths were Giardia lamblia, Schistosoma
mansoni and hookworm (Necator americanus).
Bulinus globosus serves as an intermediate host for Schistosoma
The researchers analyzed samples from more than 300 children and found that 32 percent of kids who stayed home were infected with Schistosoma
mansoni, a parasitic worm that can cause fever, blood loss and lethargy.
At minimum, students should identify Giardia, Schistosoma
, Salmonella IV.
